InuYasha: Good Intentions

Inu-Yasha's magic sword can only be wielded in defense of humanity. But when the lovesick Nobunaga tells Kagome and InuYasha the story of a 300-year-old demon, it seems that such a sword might come in handy!

This volume felt like a combination of volume 1 and 2 because everything that happened resulted in me being like "AGAIN, REALLY!?". Also, after 100 pages I couldn't help but groan when I realized that I had another 100 to get through. And that's saying something, considering it usually takes me a little less than an hour to finish a manga in one sitting.

Anyway, I still have the next 3 volumes from the library here and as I said in my review for volume 2, if it doesn't get better with the next v
Some of the best manga is the oldest.

I was looking for differences between this volume and the early episodes but the story stayed very close to the same. At the end we meet Shippo and the "Thunder Brothers" which is an enjoyable arc.

We also get some creepiness thrown in between.

One thing I had to note was that I forgot that InuYasha's blade could only be summoned to save someone. I'm not sure how heavily that's mentioned in the show or even if it is. Either way, I love that catch.

One of the things that I really like about InuYasha are the touches of humor, mixed in with the action. I also liked how much time was spent in the modern world with Kagome. The change of scene was nice, and I'm pretty sure there's less and less of that as the series continues.

"Just let me protect you." Or whatever the heck it was, it was awesome. And that was like a major turn of events at this point. YOU GO INUYASHA!

(Does it remind anyone else of the sword of Gryfinndor by any chance? No? Only me?)

In this volume, Kagome and Inuyasha, wielding his new yet peculiar weapon the Tetsusaiga, attempt to save a Princess and many young maidens from a demon possessing the Lord of a village.
Soon after, Kagome makes her usual break from the feudal era by going back through the well to the present day.
While in attempt to study for her makeup exam and then go back down the well to the feudal era, Kagome is attacked by a demon right through her window! With Inuyasha left behind in the feudal era with no

it's amazing how fast she got almost half of the main characters out in the story already. i mean, it's a 20+ volume series and this is book 3, time can be taken here. haha! wasn't i saying earlier that it's a slow start? anyway, sometimes i wish that series with lots of characters in the main cast would focus a little more on the first, say 3 characters introduced before moving on to adding almost the whole cast. well, there's still a bit more of the cast to get here, so i'm getting ahead of my ...more

I love InuYasha. It has everything a good book (or manga, in this case) should have. Action, adventure, romance, humor. Rumiko Takahasi draws her mangas extremley well, and that makes it even better in my opinion.

*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

Debí figurarme que mi romance adolescente iba a terminar así. Un gran lol por eso.

En este tomo tal vez hubo demasiado: la mujer con la máscara, Hojo, Shippo, los hermanos relámpago. Voy a destacar igualmente a Hojo, porque adoro su ingenuidad; y a Shippo porque a) es un personaje principal, b) su voz es la única que me quedó grabada, c) tiene toda la pureza de un niño.

Para corroborar más adelante: en este tomo InuYasha se da cuenta de lo que siente por Kagome.

Si, es un poco repetitivo lo de los monstruos. Pero en cada batalle aprendemos algo de los personajes. Me encanta Shippo. Y la pregunta que tengo desde el tomo pasado es: ¿Qué o quién diablos eres Kagome?

This volume contains some of my favorite Inu-Yasha moments! I love the fight with the Lightning/Thunder brothers, and the Noh Mask will always give me the creeps. Also, yay for Inu-Yasha in the modern world :D

A fun and light read. It's nice seeing how faithful the anime is to the manga. The Noh mask story is different here and I actually prefer this one over the anime's.

*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
This volume is possibly my favourite one of the series thus far.

The kappas at the beginning are adorable. It's like a mini comedy show, which continues on with Nobunaga and Hiyashimaru. Although, where Nobunaga's faults are made heavily apparent, such as his inherent clumsiness, he has redeeming qualities which outweigh them. He has a genuine love for Princess Tsuyu and his determination to save her is unmatched. Not to mention his compassion for others and his code of non-violence. He even brin

We meet yet another one of the main cast in this volume, Shippo. A small Yokai who has suffered a great loss and now seeks to obtain the Shikkon Jewel shards to gain power to avenge the death. He isn't one of the best characters in my opinion, I actually found him a little annoying throughout the series. I found him a little boring an irritating at times.

Speaking of irritating, we also see one of my biggest pet peeves about this series. The fact that throughout attempting to save the Feudal era

Kagome and Nobunaga manage to convince InuYasha not to kill them both (by killing the host body) and as a result he sits this fight out. Go Kagome!

Also in the volume, Kagome returns home to practice and write her entrance exam, threatening InuYasha horrible pain if he dares to fo

This episode is so trippy! The frog guy still makes me laugh to this day. When he turns back into a prince, it reminds me of the scene in Beauty and the Beast when the Beast turns back into a prince and he's way uglier than when he was a Beast. LOL

The whole plot line with the mask that takes over peoples bodies. . . EW. She used to TERRIFY my as a child. Seriously, the nightmares. The nightmares!

This pretty much sums up my first reaction to the mask lady:
