Considering the previous one, it lacks excitement. Sword part was interesting, though.

*This review is for the series as a whole (with a 3 star rating) and will be included on every volume for my own organizing purposes.*
This will probably be the longest review I've ever written, and for that, I apologize. I have a lot to say and despite the character limit, it will be said.
InuYasha is honestly a classic in the sense that the anime is well-loved, the manga is typically well-loved, it was original-ish when it was first published, but it went on way too long. It's a 56 volume series

They save Kouga when Mouryoumaru (just his arm actually) is about to get him - Inuyasha & co decide that they won’t let Kohaku die & will stop the Shikon no Tama from being completed - Kouga goes to the wolf tribe’s graveyard to get a claw weapon but a 3-headed wolf guard is there -& Mirdoriko’s will is controlling the Shikon fragments, which is why Kohaku went & Kouga’s legs stopped while fighting with Mouryoumaru & the wolf guard says as much - & Kouga saves his friends ...more

What I liked most in this volume were 2 different things.

One... Shippo felt like he was unimportant to Inuyasha, so he joined up with a demon girl to oppose and trick Inuyasha in ways that only he could.
The demon girl used Shippo to the strongest extent of the word, and he hated "her" in the end, especially when "she" turned out to be an old male panda demon.
Two....Koga went forth and battled for the claw weapon that is the treasure of his tribe. The demon guard thought he cou

I really liked this volume. It had lots of things happening in it. Yes lots of things, and yet no closer to wrapping this puppy up than in the previous volume. This is going to be my last IY volume for a little while. They did not have volumes 40-47 at the library, which means I have to resort to online reading or violate my book purchasing embargo. (Truly more for lack of space and storage issues more than anything else.) There are a few I would violate it for, and there is just too many of thi ...more

What first drew me to this series was the romantic historical aspect. I loved how a modern day girl gets pulled back into the past. I don't know what it is about those stories that attract me so much, maybe it is the difficulty for the girl of fitting in and having to rely on the guy so much to be able to get along in the world.

I also really liked the group aspect to this series and the corresponding relationships that affect each of the characters.

I would really recommend this series to fans of
Some character development for Shippo, who normally seems to be a pretty forgotten character in this series, so that was a nice change. Plus, some Koga action, so this is a change from the usual pace. It quickly goes back into the same old "Inu Yasha fighting another demon" formula though.
