Synopsis

Kagome Higurashi's ordinary life comes to an abrupt halt when a demon drags her deep into a well, transporting her five hundred years into the past. In this era, Kagome quickly learns two things: demons walk amongst humans and she has unknowingly brought a dangerous object from her world—a marble-sized sphere known as the Shikon Jewel. This unusual orb brings tremendous power to any demon who has it in their possession, and Kagome is an easy target for anyone determined enough to steal it.

While in a fight with a demon, a hasty attempt to fend it off causes Kagome to accidentally shatter the jewel, sending countless pieces of it all over feudal Japan. She soon learns the grave consequences of her actions when she must work with the half-demon Inuyasha to collect all the pieces of the jewel before they fall into the wrong hands.

Every so often a manga series comes along that the average reader will find daunting for one reason or another. It may be that the scope of the story is too great, or the number of chapters may be too large, or the drawing style may not be to taste, or some other reason entirely. Whatever the case may be, there are many out there who will be put off reading a manga for one reason or another.

That said, there is sometimes justification for not even starting a manga, especially as there are those that really can't cut the mustard.

Inuyasha is a beautifully plotted storyline, and the characters are truly outstanding pieces of work. While reading, you are led bit by bit to an exciting ending, and it is very difficult to put it down!

I enjoyed Inuyasha because of the characters, particularly Kagura. It also has a lot of action, suitable for the easily bored. The romantic element is tragic, sweet, and comic at the same time. I consider Inuyasha to be the very best manga I have ever read.

Made by the famous Rumiko Takahashi, the length draws out over 558 chapters, and this length both causes some of it's greatest and worst moments. For instance the romance of the story (or more specifically the love triangle) reaches it's climax as we draw towards the end with a bittersweet, but none the less great conclusion to it. However we go on to, in my opinion, another disappointing ending from Takahashi. I haven't read all of Ranma 1/2, but I hear that the ending was not the best, and InuYasha certainly felt rushed at the end. That is always a bad thing, but it's quite read more

InuYasha is the longest manga I've read as of posting this review. Originally, I thought I wouldn't be able to finish this, simply because it was around 20x longer than the first manga I read. Well, past me, you'd be surprised.

Story

While reading it, I made predictions, which as I read, seemed as if my predictions would be correct, but said predictions would later prove to be incorrect. These predictions would be one of the reasons I kept reading; the other reason being the story, which was pretty simple to understand.

Art

Rumiko Takahashi's art style has always been unique, and it's no different for Inuyasha. Throughout the read more
