Review: This was my absolute favourite manga (and anime) growing up and my niece is now a fan of the genre herself so I decided to get her Inuyasha as a gift. This is a really chunky bind up first volume so was good value for money and it has successfully carried on the fandom for this series in my family.

Review: Kagome is a stressed teenage schoolgirl from the present day. Inuyasha is a surly half-demon from five hundred years in the past. This odd couple becomes the unlikely protagonists of "Inuyasha," an action-packed fantasy with plenty of romance and comedy on the sidelines. And the first VIZBIG edition Rumiko Takahashi's hit manga leaps right into the action with its odd-couple characters, with solid action and some truly nasty monsters. On Kagome's fifteenth birthday, she's suddenly pulled into a well on her family's shrine grounds -- and emerges five hundred years in the past. After being captured by some villagers, she finds that she is the reincarnation of the venerated priestess Kikyo, who died clutching the Sacred Shikon Jewel fifty years before. As the jewel resurfaces (from inside Kagome's body), she inadvertantly wakes a powerful half-demon, Inuyasha, from the spell Kikyo used when he stole the jewel. Inuyasha loathes Kagome on sight because she's the spitting image of her preincarnation, Kikyo. But when Kagome accidentally shatters the Jewel and sends pieces flying across Japan, she and the grudging Inuyasha have to team up to recover its shards. Unfortunately, Inuyasha isn't the only one who wants the jewel shards. On their cross-country journey, the two encounter Yura of the Hair (who uses hair like razor wire), a girl-snatching toad, a "mask of flesh," a pair of Thunder Brothers, and a troublemaking little kitsune named Shippo. And the deadliest of all is Inuyasha's older brother Sesshomaru, who is is hell-bent on finding their father's tomb -- and thinks Inuyasha knows where it is. Most fantasy series belong in one of two categories -- either strange things happen to the protagonist in their own time/world/dimension, or they fall down the rabbit hole (in this case, the well) into a strange place. Apparently this rule is pretty much universal, because the latter description also applies to "Inuyasha." And Rumiko Takahashi has some fun with her own portrayal of a fantastical medieval Japan that's absolutely crawling with demons and monsters. Though the first few chapters are a bit rushed, she settles into a nice rhythm once Inuyasha and Kagome have been introduced. It's grimmer material than Takahashi's previous long-running series, but fortunately she still injects some of her trademark humor into it -- such as Kagome bonking Inuyasha with a boulder. Inu-yasha is, at first glance, a very crabby teen boy with superhuman strength, dog ears and a tendency to say the wrong things ("Take off those clothes") anytime. On the flipside, Kagome seems a little dizzy at first (understandably, considering what happened), and is obviously in over her head. Fortunately they start working together before the end, and show some signs of making a good team -- and yes, there are a couple flickers of possible romance. The VIZBIG "Inuyasha Volume 1" is a solid start to the series, and compiles the first three manga volumes into one big chunk of bloody action-packed manga. Fun and thoroughly entertaining.

Together with an unlikely ally, the half demon Inuyasha, Kagome begins a quest to recover the shards of the Shikon Jewel and learn more about her link to the past. With the power granted by a large piece of the Shikon Jewel, Naraku's scheming is in high gear as his minions go forth to do his bidding. Kikyo, the priestess whose duty it once was to guard the jewel, gave the fragment to him, but why? Then Inuyasha takes on another of Naraku's evil offspring, a demon that inhabits the very sword his half brother Sesshomaru wields. Naraku's human origins may yet prove to be his downfall if Kikyo can exploit his weaknesses by forcing him to make a difficult choice, one that is mirrored by Inuyasha's lost love for Kikyo and a possible future with Kagome!.
