I love the unique way each of the characters stand out from each other, they all follow certain character types, but each of them are quite different from each other - both in looks and in personality. I feel that it really helps the story overall.

I'd also like to comment that Inuyasha's sword being too heavy for him reminds me of another scene, in Rurouni Kenshin. Because of the pure weight and size of his newly fixed sword Inuyasha is having problems swinging the sword, it's a slower more labo

*This review is for the series as a whole with 4.5 out of 5 stars*

This series is absolutely the longest series I’ve ever read so far, with a total of 56 volumes containing 559 chapters. Yeah right? I grew up watching anime and when I stumbled to this one, I instantly got hook. I’m so in love with this anime that I have the complete anime series in my possession. Yep! It occupy mostly the memory of my external drive haha sucker I know. And it’s just now that I finally had the courage to read its

*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

Not as great as the last few. Mostly because koga and inuyasha spend most the book bickering like small children. -_- funny, but over all it gets old fairly quickly. Thing is, there are 50 some odd volumes in this series. I'd rather not waste nearly 200 pages on squabbling boys when it could be used to further the plot of this epic fantasy series. The artworks great as usual and JTS well written, but it adds very little to the over all story arch. In fact, you could probably skip the whole thing ...more

4.5 star for InuYasha volume 17!!!

A Brief Overview


Sesshomaru's sword has overcome the golbin who would infuse it with more evil. It hungers for InuYasha who is currently swordless as he waits for his blade to be fixed...

Sesshomaru decides to have a brief showdown with InuYasha to see what the 'funny' smell was all about. Kinda weird, but brothers eh?

Koga bumps into Naraku and his latest creation....and promptly runs away. Only he forgot something important...

Naraku's new pet is set loose on Inu

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

It's the new moon, and Inu Yasha has lost his powers. What a great time to fight someone possessed by their blade. This volume also sees the return of Seshomaru, Inu Yasha's half-brother. Finally, Koga returns as he and Inu Yasha fight Juromaru, the vampire, praying mantis like demon creation of Naraku.

As others have said, because of the episodic nature of this volume, it doesn't have the impact on the grand narrative, the way other books have. But it is still a good read.

I really do enjoy these books. The characters are fun, but the story is getting a little slow. This is book 17 of 56 and it seems that it is just an endless back and forth with Naraku (with Sessho-maru thrown in to keep it spicy). Its almost to the point of a kids cartoon. "You foiled us again Naraku, you naughty demon." I hope this ends soon. I cant take 40 more books of this.

Die erste Hälfte mit Tokijin mal wieder göttlich!!! Ich liebe es, wenn es um die Schwerter der Brüder geht und wenn Sesshaomaru auftaucht und auch Totosai ist sooo geil :D Aber Narakus 4. Abkömmling zab ich schon immer gehasst und verstehe nicht, warum der so unbesiegbar sein soll... Naja also mal wieder treffen sich hier Genialität und Unverständnis :D

Mais um dos putos de Naraku e pela primeira vez vemos InuYasha a ser obrigado a lutar em verdadeira simbiose. Também é agradável ver Miroku fazer outras coisa para além de Air Rip.

Decent entry into the series. For whatever reason, I didn't enjoy this as much as most of the others, but probably because it had a "one thing after another" feeling.
