A teenage girl periodically travels back in time to feudal Japan to help a young half demon recover the shards of a jewel of great power.
Kagome Higurashi, an average ninth grader, gets pulled into an ancient well by a demon, bringing her 500 years in the past to the feudal era. There, she meets Inuyasha, a half-demon who seeks the Shikon Jewel to make himself a full-fledged demon. Together with her new friends Inuyasha, Miroku, Shippo, Sango and Kirara, Kagome's search for the shards of the Sacred Jewel begins.
Inuyasha is a stereotypical, Japanese fantasy anime filled with demons, time traveling through a water well, and searching for jewels. That being said, the story hooks you and draws you deep into its lore and is very entertaining. Even though some of anime can be dark, Inuyasha is a good introduction into anime if you have never encountered it before.
Although Inuyasha came out nearly a decade ago, the animation still holds up against today’s anime even without the refinements that you would normally see in anime such as Boko No Hero (My Hero Academia).
Even though Inuyasha is a stereotypical, Japanese fantasy its story draws you deep into its lore and is very entertaining.
