Inuyasha is the adventure of Kagome who was just a normal junior high school student until one day she fell down the well at the shine she lives at. This well is a portal to the waring states era in Japan and shortly after arriving she meets a boy name Inuyasha. Kagome learns that she has the jewel of four souls contained in her body and after certain circumstances this jewel was released from her body and was shattered into thousands of shards and scatted across the country. Now Kagome must join forces with Inuyasha to retrieve all the shards and make the jewel whole again.
The story of Inuyasha is action packed, has an abundance of fights, filled with plenty of comedy and some nice romantic tension for good measure. The execution of this anime is brilliant. The story is quite long, 166 episodes, but it’s worth all of them because the story is well told, unique and just one you can’t put down.
The characters are developed very well and each has their own unique personalities. Each of the characters brings a different dimension and they wouldn’t but easily replaced. There is of course the main focus of the story, collecting the shards, but there are a lot of side stories and personal struggles of each of the characters which is adds a nice change up and great character depth.
The openings and closings I found to be hit and miss but I really enjoyed ‘Chang the World’ by V6 and ‘Every Heart’ by Minnano Kinochi. The general music in the background was really good it set the scene really well and did a great job of portraying emotions of the characters.
Overall Inuyasha is definitely one to watch. The story is brilliant, it’s funny and compelling and just over all really well developed.
