    Before I go into any detail about this manga let me first go onto a short rant So I was originally going to do a review on a whole manga series and the same review would be on every volume But certain manga series like this one are over 20 volumes So I decided to it the series piece by piece and for this review I m going to go over the first volume and then volumes 2 3 will be roughly the same So let s get started Before I talk about the plot I m going to talk about my past concerning m Before I go into any detail about this manga let me first go onto a short rant So I was originally going to do a review on a whole manga series and the same review would be on every volume But certain manga series like this one are over 20 volumes So I decided to it the series piece by piece and for this review I m going to go over the first volume and then volumes 2 3 will be roughly the same So let s get started Before I talk about the plot I m going to talk about my past concerning manga Aside from Dragon Knights this was the first manga I was introduced to before I became a member of the anime manga fan community Since this was the first manga I read, I definitely have a soft spot for it and I absolutely love it despite its flaws Yes, this manga is not perfect and there are some parts that are completely stupid but I m to say that those flaws can be found in other manga as well and not just this one Now let s take a look at the story So the story is about an ordinary junior high school student who just turned 15 and gets dragged into this medieval world where she is the reincarnation of a priestess who was once the guardian of the powerful jewel called the Shikon Jewel Her traveling into this fantasy world awakens a sealed half demon named Inuyasha who was sealed to a tree by a sacred arrow by the deceased priestess Kikyou A centipede demon chases Kagome and pulls out a powerful jewel out of her body which turns out to be the Shikon jewel Men and demons come after it and Kagome ends up accidentally shattering the jewel into pieces and scattering them across the land So now Inuyasha and Kagome have to work together to find pieces of the sacred jewel before anyone else gathers the pieces and becomes stronger with the jewels power.Already in the first volume, this manga sucks you in and here you go for an adventure The art in the manga is a cutesy art form and the adventure that comes off that pages is really a lot of fun without having to be too complex So far, the characters are really enjoyable Kagome is your average fifteen year old girl who s really fun to follow I really like how she s not really annoying given her circumstance She s in an unfamiliar place and because of that she can t help but be in danger It also doesn t help that she has the Shikon jewel in her body which attracts demons She s nice but also tends to blow in people s faces if she s pushed to her limits Inuyasha is an awesome anti hero He doesn t want to help Kagome gather the jewel shards because it s the right thing to do He wants to use the jewel to become a full fledged demon and get stronger He s a typical tough guy who has a soft spot in there somewhere These two characters are fun to read about and the tension and fights between them is just hilarious The villain as of now is really creative and also fun Sure, you had human bandits and other demons that tried to get the jewel but those were taken down quickly and their purpose was to take the jewel out of Kagome s body and to have her break it so the journey can begin Yura of the hair has an interesting use of hair and actually makes a very dangerous weapon, given that the hair is also invisible as well except for individuals with spiritual powers it makes the hair even that much deadlier So for a first volume, it s actually pretty great and brings you in for a big adventure And by big I mean long Seriously, this manga is way too long

    So this was for a 2019 Reading Challenge Read a Manga Inu Yasha was left behind by grown children and fit the bill I will point out here that I never complete challenges within the allotted time, but keep working towards completion, nonetheless If I had not also watched the first few episodes of the anime when my kids were small, this would have made no sense to me Good to know that Rumiko Takahashi is one of the richest women in Japan.My daughter says Outlander is just Inu Yasha in Sc So this was for a 2019 Reading Challenge Read a Manga Inu Yasha was left behind by grown children and fit the bill I will point out here that I never complete challenges within the allotted time, but keep working towards completion, nonetheless If I had not also watched the first few episodes of the anime when my kids were small, this would have made no sense to me Good to know that Rumiko Takahashi is one of the richest women in Japan.My daughter says Outlander is just Inu Yasha in Scotland, withwords andhistory

    Why did I ever stop following InuYasha For a long time, I was reading each volume as it came out Maybe I got lazy, or maybe I forgot to watch for it Reading the first volume again reminded me of how much I loved reading it in the first place It is huge, and it s going to take awhile to get through all of the volumes But hey, at least there s a light at the end of this tunnel But after reading the first volume, I think it ll be worth it I really like Rumiko Takahashi s signature style, Why did I ever stop following InuYasha For a long time, I was reading each volume as it came out Maybe I got lazy, or maybe I forgot to watch for it Reading the first volume again reminded me of how much I loved reading it in the first place It is huge, and it s going to take awhile to get through all of the volumes But hey, at least there s a light at the end of this tunnel But after reading the first volume, I think it ll be worth it I really like Rumiko Takahashi s signature style, and I love the characters This was one of my favorite mangas when I first read it, and it still is

    Giving this manga one star seems harsh but it s pretty much the only rating I feel is right when I think about my enjoyment of this first in a series everyone else but me seems to love To be fair, though, it slike 1 star.Anyway, everyone who followed my Black Butler adventure a little tres, cuatro, cinco, seis, siete, ocho, nueve, diez, once is what I m talking about might be a witness that it s hard for me to find a manga series where my enjoyment of it is not a constant rollercoas Giving this manga one star seems harsh but it s pretty much the only rating I feel is right when I think about my enjoyment of this first in a series everyone else but me seems to love To be fair, though, it slike 1 star.Anyway, everyone who followed my Black Butler adventure a little tres, cuatro, cinco, seis, siete, ocho, nueve, diez, once is what I m talking about might be a witness that it s hard for me to find a manga series where my enjoyment of it is not a constant rollercoaster ride I love Detective Conan, I love Ouran High School Host Club though here I ve only watched the anime and not read the manga as well and the other few mangas I ve read here and there were sometimes meh like some of the Black Butler volumes , awesome like some of the Black Butler volumes , putting me to sleep in a bookstore LIKE SOME OF THE BLACK BUTLER VOLUMES So my goal is and always will be to find another manga series that I love and adore as much as Detective Conan And when I saw the first few volumes of Inu Yasha at my library, I picked them up with high hopes.Inu Yasha 01 isn t bad by any means, it s just one of those firsts in a book manga series that didn t make me feel interested in how the story will continue Once the manga started, everything happened at once and I was like, wait, can we please slow down a little here It gave no depth to anything that was happening because there was just too much happening to focus on one thing at a time This girl literally accidentally time travels and she thinks once or twice about how much she wants to go home and that s it I know it s a manga and that I shouldn t be expecting too much emotional depth but I WOULD BE FREAKING OUT Especially considering what shit goes down in the world of Inu Yasha.That s pretty much my only complaint, the missing depth that s too much is happening at once s fault I have the next 5 volumes here, so I ll definitely continue this series and hope that it gets better for me If that doesn t happen with the next 5 volumes, I won t read any further because ain t nobody got time for a 60 volumes long manga series that you don t enjoy

    Inuyasha was the first anime show that I really enjoyed I found it by accident, I even forget how, and then I watched all 167 episodes on Youtube it took me about 3 months to finish haha and then the Final Act on a different site What can I say I love Inuaysha It s probably my favorite anime show ever, but definitely top three It s funny and exciting and I can still not get it out of my head, even though I finished it months ago Oh, and Inuyasha and Kagome all the way.

    I was surprised by how good this volume was I tend to be a lotinto therecent anime manga, but this is an excellent example of an older work with a really strong storyline and the potential for a very cute romance I was rather upset by how much chest the author drew though If I owned this book, I d definitely want to censor it before letting my siblings read it.

    InuYasha is a series that I adore While I watched the anime I feel in love with the characters and would end up sneaking out of my bedroom late at night to catch the show week after week It was the show that introduced me to anime and at the time I didn t even know what manga was.It would make sense for my adoration to transfer itself over to the manga I mean, they did end the anime series early and it s one of my favourite properties of all time However, my love for the story and characters InuYasha is a series that I adore While I watched the anime I feel in love with the characters and would end up sneaking out of my bedroom late at night to catch the show week after week It was the show that introduced me to anime and at the time I didn t even know what manga was.It would make sense for my adoration to transfer itself over to the manga I mean, they did end the anime series early and it s one of my favourite properties of all time However, my love for the story and characters may be the one thing that s holding me back really loving the manga I wasn t incredibly impressed by the first couple of volumes when I read them early last year The story felt less fluid and the art is in that older style of drawing that I m not incredibly fond of It s a difficult adjustment to make, seeing something you love in a different medium and I stopped reading before I was able to adjust to it Something that s also giving me some difficulty is the story itself Because the anime was so incredibly faithful to the manga s material at least as far as I ve read , this isn t anything new to me Even the dialogue matches up word for word in some places For someone is still cooing over the anime it s hard to really get into the series because that element of surprise, being introduced to something new, not knowing a characters history, motivation, and future, just isn t there anySo I ve marked this series as dropped, but just for now At some point I am going to read this series then entire way through, all 56 volumes of it, because it is so close to my heart But it has to be at a point where returning to this doesn t activate my sense of deja vu If you love something, sometimes you ve got to let it go and hope it comes back to you Now, if you ll excuse me, I have to retreat to my dark corner and cry

    I love this series Rumiko Takahashi returns with a story that has all the comedy of her popular series Ranma 1 2 , but withattention to plot and character development.Kagome is a young Japanese highschooler in modern Japan When she falls in an ancient well on her home property, she finds herself transferred to ancient Japan There, she discovers she is a reincarnation of a priestess whose job was to protect a magical item called the Shikon Jewel Ancient Japan is littered with a cast of I love this series Rumiko Takahashi returns with a story that has all the comedy of her popular series Ranma 1 2 , but withattention to plot and character development.Kagome is a young Japanese highschooler in modern Japan When she falls in an ancient well on her home property, she finds herself transferred to ancient Japan There, she discovers she is a reincarnation of a priestess whose job was to protect a magical item called the Shikon Jewel Ancient Japan is littered with a cast of characters, from talking animals to demons and half demons This jewel if in posession of a demon or a half demon, can make that demon extra powerful and lethal When Kagome causes the Shikon jewel to shatter, she is forced to pair up with Inuyasha, an unruly half demon, in order to repair the damage she has done This series is progressive in a way that Takahashi s Ranma 1 2 fails to be Whereas Ranma 1 2 was filled with comedic scenes and the characters relationships suffered as a result, here Takahashi balances everything out the plot moves, and at such a thrilling pace The characters develop, learn, and fall in love, and the comedy is enough to split your sides without subtracting from the overall story s movement.I would recommend this series to any graphic novel fan
