Kagome is a modern Japanese high-school girl. Never the type to believe in myths and legends, her world view dramatically changes when, one day, she's pulled out of her own time and into another! There, in Japan's ancient past, Kagome discovers more than a few of those dusty old legends are true, and that her destiny is linked to one legendary creature in particular--the dog-like half-demon called Inuyasha! That same trick of fate also ties them both to the Shikon Jewel, or "Jewel of Four Souls." But demons beware...the smallest shard of the Shikon Jewel can give the user unimaginable power.

Won the 47th Shogakukan Manga Award in the Shounen category.

Spoiler (highlight to view)
When I started reading this series, I LOVED everything about it. The characters, the concept, the settings. Each character is interesting and memorable (except Sango. She's just plain annoying in my opinion). I especially love the designs of the characters' outfits. They are so pretty!

Let's talk about the ending shall we. Well, the words 'crappy' and 'unsatisfying' pretty much describe it. Seriously, one MAJOR thing that annoys me is that Inuyasha and Kagome have never kissed in the manga (I don't know about the anime). I mean, what is up with that? Their romance is supposed to play an important part, yet all they do is hug. I know 'physical actions' isn't all there is to love, but still, fans want to see the hero and heroine share at least one goddamn kiss. I was actually expecting a major emotional scene when Kagome finally returns to the Sengoku era, but damn it, it was so lame.

The ending also doesn't tell us what happens to the other semi-important minor characters, such as Kouga. He disappears pretty much right after he obtains the badass weapon (which I forgot the name of). What the hell. I was so sure that he would show up for the final showdown with Naraku, but he doesn't. Another disappointment for me.

Anyway, sorry for the long rant. I just wish I didn't read the ending. I wish I just stopped right after Naraku's death. I would've rated this series 10/10 if I just stopped there. I had such high hopes for the ending, but oh well.

I fall for this one when I watched the anime,
but I was so shock when I got the Manga,
well, I dont like the drawing, and dunno why I cant into the story while read it..
but Inuyasha Anime version is still one of my favorite.
The anime version was so great and I think MUCH better than the Manga.
Sunrise is really somethig for being able to bring this Manga into a Great anime!

This manga is great for a shounen, I usually dislike them, but this is going in my favorites. I'm not going to post why because I don't want to spoil anything, but this manga is a great read.

This was one of my favorite animes and when i read the manga i loed it even more. My only request is that Kagome sould have gotten some more love. She did alot for him. The least he could've done was gave a heartfelt confession and a make out session or something Lol

the manga was pretty nice, good story. Though i wanted it to end, but this ending was prettu disappointing. I find that they rush it a little. Well other than that it was a pretty long worth manga. alot of action, adventure, drama.

Which ever one it is you'll have to decide by reading this manga. I really enjoyed the story though at times it was distracting with the whole love triangle thing. I mean come on ... You do love someone, you don't. Make up your mind. The art was not as good as I have seen but it was pleasing to the eye.

This manga has a special place in my heart, and always will. It's a very good manga, a bit too long and i didn't like the ending, but apart from that, it's enjoyable.
The plot is simple and easy to follow, the main characters have depth and entertaining personallitys, and over time you really get attached to them. The art is very nice too, Takahashi's style is never boring. The action is amanzing, the battles don't drag on and on, linke im many other shounen series, and Takahashi just draws the best blood.

I love this my manga with all my heart, I don't think about it as a masterpiece, but it's definetly one of the better series in the shounen genre, with great action, a nice plot and very loveable characters. Definetly worth reading.

This Manga was introduced to me, in the form of the anime, which was good. However even i was in the vain of it being way to long. Then while starting reading it 5 days or so, i felt ok, yeah, this is the great series i remembered, detail to detail. Finding that it was long, i was ready to read a long series. I have read all 600+ Detective Conan, and other Manga with great length.
Now let me explain why a great series is defined by it's length, well... more or less what defines it.

I'm of the opinion that if something is good, then it might as well be long, no matter how repetitive it is, simply because good characters can't be spoiled by repetition, just the storyline, if anything it enhances the Characters and dampens the storyline.

What i thought of Inuyasha, Continuing of earlier, Inuyasha Ringed in my ears (Even if i didn't hear any voices) when I thought of reading manga. I read past the anime plot line, and found new ground, loving every minute, every once in a while being frustrated at the side stories, but was never tired, i finished it today, with a thought nothing, because i loved it, i couldn't grasp how much i loved the last words, and the last page, the true feelings of the characters towards the Shikon no Tama, i was braced and after much effort i finished this manga, and my rating is all over this comment, any people who have a problem, then rational thought is not with you because if you liked something, regardless, it should be no lower than a 8, and Inuyasha definitely deserves a perfect score, 10 A Legendary Manga.
