Turned on the TV and just happened to re-watch a bit of Inuyasha The Final Act….It made me want to re-watch the whole Inuyasha series again….
A middle school girl Higurashi Kagome who lives on the grounds of her family’s hereditary Shinto shrine. When she goes into the well house to retrieve her cat, a centipede demon bursts out of the enshrined Bone Eater’s Well and pulls her through it. As she leaves the well, Kagome appears in the Sengoku period of Japan. During the demon’s previous attack, a magical jewel known as the Sacred Jewel of Four Souls (Shikon no tama) was embodied from Kagome. She then becomes the demon’s target and it tries to consume the jewel and kill Kagome. In desperation, Kagome unseals the half-demon InuYasha who was placed on a tree fifty years ago by Kagome’s incarnation Kikyo, the young miko [ priestess] of the village in charge of the sacred jewel who had, upon her death, requested that the jewel be burned in her funeral pyre. Although InuYasha destroys the centipede, the Sacred Jewel is later shattered into numerous shards that disperse across Japan.[thanks to Kagome’s arrow shooting..] Even the individual shards are capable of granting great power, and are eagerly sought by humans and demons alike. InuYasha and Kagome set out to collect the shards to avoid disasters caused by Sacred Jewel of Four Souls….
Along the way, they join forces with Shippo, a small fox demon who is orphaned, Miroku, a monk who suffers from a curse his ancestors were given by a powerful demon, and Sango, a demon-slayer whose clan was killed by a group of demons. They are mainly opposed by Naraku, a devious and powerful collective half-demon who manipulated the initial conflict between Kikyo and InuYasha, Sango’s clan’s destruction and was responsible for Miroku’s curse. Naraku collects the shards for himself and continues setting up traps on InuYasha and his companions to take Kagome’s jewels. Other people they find are InuYasha’s older half-brother Sesshomaru, who wishes to kill Naraku after he tried to manipulate him, Kikyo, now partially resurrected with a fragment of Kagome’s soul, and a wolf demon named Koga, most of whose comrades were killed by Naraku’s forces.

As I was young, I grew up disliking Kikyo alot…[don’t ask me why..]
[Inuyasha stopped at episode 167 and was incomplete…making many viewers wonder if there was going to be another season..and…yes, after a few years, Inuyasha the Final Act was aired.. :):)~]
In Inuyasha the Final Act…
Naraku eventually collects all of the shards and reassembles the Jewel of Four Souls. Although InuYasha and his allies defeat him, Naraku uses his power as the Jewel’s owner to wish for Kagome’s soul to be trapped inside it with his own, which would allow Naraku to survive within it in eternal conflict with her. With Inuyasha by her side, Kagome wishes for the Jewel to disappear forever, breaking the cycle. She and Inuyasha are then thrown back to their respective time periods and the well shuts, causing them to lose contact for the next three years. In that time, the Sengoku period has undergone changes: Sango and Miroku are married with three children together; Kohaku resumes his journey to become a strong demon slayer (with Kirara); Koga becomes leader of the Wolf Demon tribe and marries Ayame; and Shippo attains the 7th rank as a fox demon. Back in the present, Kagome graduates from high school and comes to a realization which allows the well to work again. With approval from her mother, Kagome returns to the Sengoku period, where she stays with InuYasha.

Well, Inuyasha was my 1st anime and I had happy memories of watching it with my sister..^^~ The setting of the anime was really nice…2 worlds being connected with each other through a well…one world was the ordinary modern world…whereas the other was of this ancient time zone…When I say ‘ancient’, the first thing which you would probaby think of is those old fuedal lords in Japan and war among huge armies and old romance and stuff….but…NO. Inuyasha isn’t like that…In the ancient world, demons exist together on the same land as humans…there are priests, travellers, tribes and stuff, and in each episode the plot was good enough to keep me want to continue watching their adventure to gather up all the shards… ~~memories~~
Sesshomaru was the person who made my sister not give up on watching…and I have to admit…he IS pretty cool…with only one hand..[Inuyasha tore of his other…though in Inuyasha the Final Act, Sesshomaru somehow had his arm back…]
Inuyasha’s half-brother…[they both had the same father…and different mothers…his mother was a demon, whereas Inuyasha’s was a human…(thats why Inuyasha was only a half-demon and loses his demonic form when the full moon is out..) ] Being Proud, and yet Kind-hearted…he reminds me of Kuchiki Byakuya from Bleach…
(still wondering if I should re-watch it or not…~~)
