InuYasha Biography

InuYasha is a long-running manga and anime series by Rumiko Takahashi. InuYasha is a shonen action adventure romantic comedy, with elements from the horror genre. The story begins in Tokyo, Japan with a junior high-school girl named Kagome Higurashi, who, on her way to school, heads to the covered well on the family property (which happens to be a Shinto shrine). She does this to retrieve her cat, Buyo, from the well, since her brother was afraid to go inside.

When she approaches the well a centipede demon (dubbed "Mistress Centipede") bursts from the well and grabs her. The demon claims that Kagome possesses the Jewel of Four Souls, and attempts to seize it. When she drives the demon off by an unknown and mysterious power, the very confused Kagome emerges in the Sengoku period of Japan. Spotting the 'The Scared Tree' she recognizes from her family shrine, Kagome discovers a sleeping boy pinned to tree by an arrow. Upon closer inspection, she finds he has dog-like ears on his head, and feels compelled to touch them.

Kagome is then captured by local villagers, who take her to their miko (Shinto priestess) by the name of Kaede, who claims that Kagome is the spitting image of Kikyo, her elder sister (and powerful priestess) who had died and had her body burned with the Jewel of Four Souls, taking it with her into the afterlife. Kaede relates the story of how, 50 years earlier, a han'yo, also a half demon, named InuYasha had tried to steal the Jewel from Kikyo, mortally wounding her in the process, but Kikyo had managed to strike him with a sealing arrow, sealing him to the Tree of Ages and into an enchanted and supposedly eternal sleep, retrieving the Jewel before she finally died.

It turns out that Kagome is the reincarnation of Kikyo, and that she does possess the Jewel of Four Souls, embedded inside her body. When the centipede demon rips it from her and swallows it, granting the demon a great boost in power, Kagome is forced to pull out the arrow and awaken InuYasha so he can defeat it.

Soon after they recover the Jewel, it is lost again, and Kagome accidentally shatters it into pieces as she tries to recover it. The pieces scatter far and wide, and the story tells of Kagome and InuYasha's adventures as they search for the shards of the Jewel. As they search, they meet new characters who either join them on their quest, or oppose them for various reasons. Throughout the story, Kagome and InuYasha come closer and develop feelings for each other, though the romance remains as a side plot for most of the story.

Since its introduction on Cartoon Network, the ranks of InuYasha fans have swelled. to the point where calls the program a "cult" and its fans "rabid zealots". The show is so popular that although it has been taken off the air many times in its run, it has always been reinstated due to the demands of viewers.
