I'm kind of surprised why I don't hear more from Inu Yasha fans in these forums (both here and NF) - especially considering fans of Inu Yasha (and Ranma 1/2) were probably the first "manga fandoms" that I occasionally would run into on the net.

I have a good friend in California (you know who you are ;) )and we brought each other manga for our birthdays. I got her Bleach; she got me Inu Yasha. (And for a later birthday, she sent me all her imported Inu Yasha anime too!) While I don't find it as interesting as Naruto or Bleach, it's proved to be a nice escape every now and then just to read a volume or two. I consider it pretty solid entertainment and the characters are very memorable.

Anyway, I don't think Inu Yasha needs much of an introduction, but just in case, here's the premise:

"A female junior high school student, Kagome Higurashi, falls through a well ending up in the Warring States Period. There she meets a half-demon named Inuyasha. The two ends up trying to get the shards of the "Shikon no Tama" (Jewel of the Four Souls) before they fall into the wrong hands. It's written and drawn by the same creator of Ranma 1/2, Rumiko Takashi.

I know it's a long series, and I'm probably not going to be able to catch up to the latest volume for a long while. But I'm currently on volume 18, when Inu Yasha and Kagome meet Goshinki, one of Naraku's "offspring."

So what do you think of Inu Yasha? Do you read the manga, or do you watch the anime, or both? Have you tried it, but didn't like it? Are you planning to read all the volumes? Is the pace just right for you or is it dragging too long? Do you like Rumiko Takahashi's work?

If you do like Inu Yasha, what's your favorite part in the story so far? Character? What would you like to see happen?

As with other similar discussion threads to this one, please be considerate and include spoiler tags so you don't accidentally spoil the plot for anybody else. Be sure to mention before the spoiler tags what volume or chapter you're at as well.

Ok, talk away.

I'm going to put a list of the previous releases in this thread, that way they're easily accessed ^^ Thanks to Freelance-Manga for the scans

I used to collect Inu-Yasha actually, it was enjoyable and I got up to around the 200th issue and then stopped as it dragged. I hope there is a definate direction and end in sight so I may re-visit it one day. It's a shame really, the same happened to 3x3 Eyes and I hope Naruto or Bleach doesn't...

Sounds like the main problem is Rumiko Takashi is keeping Inu Yasha going too long, and there's not enough creativity anymore? Maybe that explains why I don't hear from fans anymore.

Do you know where Inu Yasha is at right now?

I have actually been following the manga online and I have to agree that it seems like it had slowed down a lot. I heard the rumor that she wants to end it at about 500 chapters but I am not sure if that is true or not.


Currently the group just finished trying (yet again) to fight Naraku. Miroku actually came very close to finishing him off with the Kazanna but in the process was hurt badly by the poision. However, Kikyou came to the rescue and healed him only to tell him that if he used the Kazanna one more time that would be it for him. Miroku decides to keep this secret from Sango since he does not want to worry her more than she already is. They are now all currently trying to regroup and decide where they are going to go from there. Interestingly though it is the first time that Inuyashas group, Kikyou, Kouga, and Kohaku are all working together (for the moment anyways)

I am happy that you like the links. Hopefully the second one will come back up soon since I think that would be the best place for you to get caught up.

I have not really been in the 'loop' for a bit on Inuyasha but I used to know some really good sites. Sadly I went to some of them and found them gone.

Anyone ever heard of Iridescent Dreams, the Inuyasha fanfiction site? Just curious since I was really involved in there before it exploded and was wiped off the internet. x_x

Thanks for the information, Tamerlane :)

Also, you can put your spoilers in spoiler tags, it's just like how you color your text; just replace color with spoiler. I did it for you - quote your post to see how to do it. :)

Sorry to hear all these sites disappeared - I heard the same thing happened to a lot of DBZ fansites. I guess it's just the servers became neglected and were taken down.

Ah thanks for fixing my post. That is the first time that I have seen something like that.....

That is really neat...

<_<

::makes the text appear and disappear a few more times::

Anyway....yeah I used to be into DBZ at one point and the same thing happened with them that is happening to Inuyasha concerning the websites.

It does not matter though I shall be stubborn and stick around to the end of the series just to see what happens to Kagome and Inuyasha. At one point I actually followed the story line more intently...but that is all that it really comes down to now. =/

A dedicated reader! Just what this thread needs. ;)

Btw, I think I saw some older Inu Yasha volumes available at lurk that you can get through mIRC too. I've yet to give it try though.

I would go for it. Although the series is dragging out at the moment it is still a good read. I am not sure what kind of manga that you enjoy, but this has a lot of action, angst, and some complicated character interactions.

Also Shippou is adorable. I mean how can you not like a little fox demon that turns into a big pink balloon. :amuse

I like Shippo, but Miroku's definitely my fav. ^_^

Maybe I'll read more Inu Yasha soon. I was buying the volumes, but I can only spend so much money at any time so I guess I'll probably go ahead and read the online soon.

Ah, well, I guess I could consider myself an inuyasha fan, but I definately agree that it needs to end. accorrding to a message from the author, it should continue at least another 50 or so chapters, and that's practically a whole 'nother year!

The whole thing seems very episodic, and many story arcs seem to reinforce overtly themes that have been stated over and over again. It's also suffered from repeated "gain new ability" arcs and some have joked that the telling of these ability upgrades have received more attention than character development, which I don't deny. :( Also I think it hold's the guiness record for "most numerous sucessful main villian escape attempts." there's been a bunch of points where the villians have been near thwarted but manage to slip away, thus keeping the series going.....

I personally watched the anime, but that ended prematurely, so I continued onward with the manga.


Well, for starters, tessaiga, inuyasha's sword is cool, and if compared to any of the swords in bleach, would pwn each and every one of them imho, save for the fact that it's only "a sword of the living world". It's pretty cool because of all the upgrades it's been getting as of late...

the series started going stale around the time the events brought about by the concusion of the goshinki were over, as portrayed the once powerful "kize-no-kizu" as a staple-easily deflcected attack, and began the trend of aquiring new uber powers, only to have them reduced in effectiveness, thus bringing on the search for a new uber power. boy this sounds familiar... but where...? ;)


actually there are a few parallels between inuyasha and bleach, most specifically a certain "sword of the other world" which cuts those from the non-living realm, and it curiously has a technique discovered later to ba named meidou-zangetsu-ha. but wait, it doesn't end there, said technique opens up a fissure to a void which reminds me of hueco mundo. yeah, I know. who gets to sue who here?

At least there does seem to be an end in sight. I was wondering if she was planning to draw/write it until she died.

I don't really mind "episodic" manga though. I like following a group's adventures as long as there's interesting challenges ahead. My main problem with Inu Yasha is actually the art rather than the story. I like Rumiko's style fine, but she doesn't really have a flair for the dramatic at all. I'm more into dynamic art. Or at least, more detailed art or realism, either one or the other.

Which is one reason I actually enjoy watching the Inu Yasha anime more than the manga, because color adds so much to her style of art.

Still, I'll read the manga before watching the anime because I don't want to miss anything, just in case they left something out.

I loved this series so much for a very long time. It was the first "fandom" I was ever really a part of, reading/writing fics and chatting with other Inuyasha lovers. It's how I met Tamerlane. :hug But after a while it slowed down and I felt like the same things kept happening, so I lost track of it. ^^;;

Naraku is just a bastard. Whenever InuYasha and co. ALMOST get him... he finds some way to get away and we can expect a whole truckload of more volumes before the next Naraku showdown. There's never the satisfaction of seeing the bad guy get owned, and I lost interest way back.

Let's hope Orochimaru doesn't fall under the same category. They need to beat him, sooner, not later. Preferably within the next three volumes.

600+ is a little bit much @___@ ... even as a Inu Yasha Fan, I would like to come to an end next year. But I think she slowly pushes things to the final stage (ok, I also thought that several volumes ago >.<).

But currently it's really faszinating again. Sesshōumaru is so ... so ... so ...sooo ... hmpf ... I don't have words worth enough to descripe it. It took more then 400 chapters before we finally could see him like that :wtf

No, she said "that there's still many more stories she has to write (before the series can finish) and that for now she's aiming for at least 500 chapters." :D


By the way I still don't know why Seshoumaru only has one hand he needs the other one he should revive and reatach it.If that's possible
Why? o.o ... is it for every important manga character necessary to regenerate? That's boring. He is very strong even without his arm, I don't see any reason to get it back.

mugen
September 25, 2006, 10:51 AM
well he would be even stronger probably could've mastered the meido zangetsuha faster without having Rin to die. Also Seshoumaru is of Nobility he looks inferior without his arm.

well he would be even stronger probably could've mastered the meido zangetsuha faster without having Rin to die. Also Seshoumaru is of Nobility he looks inferior without his arm.

I disagree. I believe that Sesshoumaru is working under the assumption that an arm that was unworthy enough to be cut off, is unnecessary. :noworry

Also, I doubt it would have had made any difference in the speed at which he learned meido zangetsuha, plus rin isn't dead, so all's well that ends well.

I prefer storys were a loss can simply be a loss. It's boring to know that characters can been beat up like hell and afterwards they don't even remain a scratch ... or, maybe I'm just to old for the usual miraculous healing- und returning abillities in shounen manga :eyeroll

I prefer storys were a loss can simply be a loss. It's boring to know that characters can been beat up like hell and afterwards they don't even remain a scratch ... or, maybe I'm just to old for the usual miraculous healing- und returning abillities in shounen manga :eyeroll

(well, it's another topic in FMA manga, were a important parts of the story is about getting the lost parts back ... *imagines sesshoumaru with an automail* :darn )

Yes, but Inuyasha is just that. Rin's died twice now! Honestly, (though I love rin) it would have been far more powerful if she had actually died.

As for FMA, they are trying to get back their limbs, but there's been a lot of loss. Their mother is gone forever, no matter what. As is Hughes. :crying

The only important character I remember actually dying in Inuyasha is kikyo...and she was already dead, and should have stayed that way. :notrust

Hm, I never liked Kikyo much. She made the whole story unnecessary complicated and I couldn't see any important thing she did during her second life that couldn't have been done by another character. More then 400 chapters were Kagome just a shadow of her - Kikyo this, Kikyo that. It's was a tragical moment, but I feel relived that she is finally gone now :noworry

Kaguras death was somehow more touching *sniff sniff*

Umm I just thought of something dumb. Inuyasha Bankai :noworry Yeah with that he could kick Naraku's ass easy.

Physc I'm just playing anyway's how long will we have to wait for the showdown. I mean one enemy is just too much for 475 chapters.

http://www.ear-tweak.com/ramblings/qa_inu.htm:

The final anime episode aired on September 13, 2004 in Japan, for a total of 167 episodes for its original run. This episode covered material from the manga in chapters 345-356 (volume 35-36), roughly, with a few changes here and there.

eni
November 07, 2006, 07:30 AM
A month? hmmm ... then go and check. Takahashi seems to move the story forward now to an end.

poor kanna, but hopefully she gave the final hint

//edit
She said she will reach 500 chapters, hm?

So, she is now at volume 49 (chapter 479-488). That means the anniversary volume 50 will be chapter 489-498, so I predict she will end the manga at the end of volume 50 (maybe including 2 special chapters) or Volume 51 (chapter 499-518) will be some sort of special big-end-volume with lots of fanservice .... *eyesparkles*

Ok, back to reality ... what do you think? :)

I'm glad that the manga is finally coming to an end. It's been around for so long, and there hasn't been any real movement in the plot :/ They're always chasing after Naraku, yada yada. And Kikyo dying? that was teh win XD

I don't mind a manga having alot of chapters, but if it's going to be that long then there needs to be more happening :/

Also I love what we saw about Sesshomaru lately, that was pretty cool.
His mum is so beautiful <333 ... I would love to see more about the brothers family.

And I would like to see more little Tokyo-adventures, I always enjoy them so much and I really miss grandpa's reasons for Kagome missing school :D

We even had not much human/demon-Inuyasha for a long time. I think she could play this cards more often to give the story a little bit more flavour. My fav arcs have one of these as a topic *think*

But as far as i know (at least it was the last news I heard), the anime was never canceld but is kinda on hold. The animation team already talked about a new start, but i personaly think that they will wait for the manga to end and then end the anime in a special ova/movie.

No, it's an open ending .. or, well ... the current arc was ended, but not the main plot.

I just talked about your timing^^... don't take me so serious :blink

Ok, first - I just told you what the news said in 2004. The only archive source I can think about right now is eartweaks, so I quote it:


http://www.ear-tweak.com/iy_anime/]SEPTEMBER[/url] 13, 2004 - Inuyasha television series finale aired today!

Yes, according to Sunrise producer Machihiko Suwa's interview on Anime Scramble on Aug. 20, there likely will be more Inuyasha projects, but nothing further has been said. Websunday has also hinted that there will still be Inuyasha anime on the horizon, but again, no indication as to what direction it will take.

If there is any further information out of Japan, rest assured I'll post it here.

AUGUST 21, 2004 - A "first installment" of Inuyasha?

Yes, both Yomiuri TV and Websunday have been (rather ambiguously) saying that there indeed will be future Inuyasha anime projects.

It is very common for televised anime to end short of their manga counterparts and not follow through the ending. Yes, the last one-hour televised episode of Inuyasha did NOT end like the manga is going to end (being that the manga hasn't ended yet.) But while 166-167 IS being called the last episode, whether or not the series will continue through OAV (original animation video, direct-to-video) releases, or other unserialized televised episodes, or some other form (:P) hasn't been said or decided. According to the Anime Scramble interview, there will probably not be any production until after Guren no Houraijima is released this winter, though.

We'll keep you updated on more news.

source: Websunday, Yomiuri TV, Anime Scramble interview, Producer Machihiko Suwa, Aug. 20

//edit ... I remember that there was also a meeting between producers, mangaka and some of the voice actors (at least Inuyashas seiyuu). But I can't find any old news about it.

And second - it's not unusual to continue an anime after a few years (e.g. 3x3Eyes, first part in 1991 and second part in 1995 - there was a 4 years timeskip in the story as well as in reallife xD). Not every producer decides for filler.
I also think it would have been better for Naruto to go on hold for 2 years instead of making the anime worse. Even the non-manga readers cried about the difference in story and quality^^ ... so before Inuyasha runs into another dragonball sydrome, it's better to stop. But I still think it's possible that there will follow an anime special when the manga ends.



But it's nice to dream though
keep dreaming Eni

Of course :D

Wow!!! there is an inuyasha discussion thread here- and i have never posted in it :o

Lucky for me i found an unread post where someone was asking for an inuyasha website and it eventually led me here.

sINCE there isnt much of any discussion on inuyasha-- are we allowed to discuss recent chapters here?

i guess not- after reading the whole thread :p

i will be back-- i havent read the last three freelance releases yet even though i have them downloaded. Inuyasha-- i would have really loved it if the creator had improved the plot a bit-- oh well-- i love it anyways and will always do.

WOOT im at last up2date >_< after years and countless websites im finalie uptodate ^__________________^ *can't use irc >.< ((Not dosnt want to i <3 irc but cuz i got a virus i havent been able ot use it -_-))

How much longer can this manga go on? i mean the way its going i can see the story going way over 500 chapters if it ends @ 500 it will be a rushed ending and i think after reading (sufering?) we need a good ending.

I think there will be a second part to the anime once the manga is over i think inuyasha is still simi popular in the usa/japan but not as big as it once was i think Naruto / Bleach / FMA are takeing over sences inuyasha ended in japan.

*pokes miroku & sango ....*



Dose anyone realie think they are going to die? i mean i cant see Takashi-san killing them off this close to the end i mean they have been in it for sooooo long ...

Yes i do know Miroku is the one in real danger but i just like to lump them up together :P

The last chapter of the manga in my mind should be like death notes final chapter and take place awhile after the final battle with Naraku when they finalie kill him and we see if all the matches happen

Sango + Miroku

Human inuyasha or half yokai inu yasha + Kogome ( Thou they could have Inu kill Naraku and die him self >_> )

Shippo + Some dog or something :P

January 09, 2007, 08:56 AM
What about Kogome? i mean the girl needs a little action >__< her main thing is sit around tell inuyasha says it's time to come out and play and then she pull's out her arrow and shoots something and then sits back down and watches the fight with shippo...

Kogome should find a 'dyeing will' arrow and shoot shippo w/it "DEFEAT NARAKU WITH MY DYEING WILL!!!!!!!!' -_- too bad reborn-san isnt there :(

You would think it was too late to be killing ppl off but wouldnt that be one of the best plot twist to this looooong manga?

Have them DIE AND STAY DEAD???? lol that hasnt happened yet... im still waiting to see Kikiyo come back from the dead again and the other's that have died :P

January 12, 2007, 01:03 PM
i've just readen chapter 488...indeed i'm a bit disappojnted: i'm sad for miroku, even hiraikotsu healed...at the end only his life is in danger, and mostly he can't fight freely...inuyasha didn't gain another tecnique...and the youkai that meet sesshoumaru seems another naraku's puppet...we will see the next week.

http://i36.photobucket.com/albums/e15/taheca/spoiler.gif

I have to say that I usually dislike shounen movie adaptions. Naruto, Rurouni Kenshin, Fullmetal Alchemist, .... the movies didn't impressed me much. Sadly, they drifted to much away from the original plot and came up with some bizarre ideas ... but that's offtopic here >.>

What I wanted to say: Unlike other movie adaptions, I do really like the Inuyasha movies. I love the art, the plot and some of the things that happened there between some of the chars *cough cough*. I know that the story of the movies itself isn't taken from the original manga storyline and often it is heavily intefering with things we expect to read in the future manga development (e.g. kissing scene, Inuyashas parents,... ). But I like that and I don't think that Takahashi will built her own versions of e.g. Inuyashas birth into the manga anymore.

What's your opinion about this? And which movie do you like the best?
Unfortunatly I haven't watched the fourth one yet.

As Inu Yasha nears 500 chapters, there's alot to reflect on through the series. But as much content as there has been, is there anything you haven't seen but would like to before the series ends? Maybe a TRUE kiss between Kagome and Inu Yasha? Sesshoumaru making up with Inu Yasha? (Like that'll ever happen ><) Want to see Sango and Miroku get married and have kids? Then this is the place to say it ^^


As for myself, I would like to see Moko-moko sama be used as a cushion/bedding again :3 (for those who don't know, Moko-moko sama is the name of Sesshoumaru's fluff =D) And odd wish, I suppose, but I do love teh fluff!

What about ya'll?

LadyHatake
January 25, 2007, 08:59 PM
The title says it all: what are the best moments in the Inu Yasha series?


My favorite was the first time that Sesshoumaru and Inu Yasha fought. It established a sense of rivalry (a different kind than the one between Inu Yasha and Koga). It evoked questions about their pasts, and why they really hate each other. Still, the best part of their first fight was seeing Sesshoumaru's powers of ownage :3

January 26, 2007, 09:27 AM
I can't comment on the series at large, because I'm only up to volume 20 or thereabouts. But I can say that I did enjoy that first battle between Inu Yasha and Sesshoumaru too. In fact, I liked Sesshoumaru a lot better when he was a villain than when he started developing into a sort of neutral character :/

I also particularly enjoyed when Miroku came on the scene too, and revealed his "black hole" ability (sorry, not familiar with what it should be called >.<)

LadyHatake
January 26, 2007, 09:37 AM
It's called kaazana ^^

And yeah, meeting the lecherous monk was alot of fun. I loved how the relationship between himself and Sango was that love-hate kind of thing. When she hit him with Hiraikotsu or her hand, it always made me laugh XD And his antics with Hachi, the racoon-dog, were always funny too ^^

LadyHatake
January 26, 2007, 09:45 AM
Well all have our favorites, so why not talk about them? Cast a vote for the character you like most, whether it's because they own or are hilarious. Get your opinion out there, and see what others think, too!

For myself, my favorite character is Sesshoumaru, though Rin's a close second. While he was a complete badass in the beginning, he changed throughout the course of the series. I think Rin had alot to do with that, and it was good to see. He's still a badass, but doesn't have quite as frosty a heart.

Plus, Mokomoko-sama owns!

glasskatana
January 26, 2007, 02:36 PM
hmmm, looks like you could use some posts. Well, my favorite character is Sesshoumaru. His cool demeanor, how he doesn't have a side, fights by his own rules, but has that one soft spot. Plus, I LOVE the way he fights.

glasskatana
January 26, 2007, 02:38 PM
Let's see, my favorite moments would have to be...the introduction of Sesshoumaru, the fight where Sesshoumaru uses Tetsusaiga (Great fight). Also, the supressed fangirl inside of me loves the scene where Inuyasha hugs Kagome. >.>

LadyHatake
January 26, 2007, 04:23 PM
Hm, there seems to be a running theme of Sesshoumaru here :3 Works for me~!

And yeah, Inu Yasha hugging Kagome was sweet ^^ I really like seeing that kind of thing, it makes him seem less...bestial, I guess.

LadyHatake
January 26, 2007, 04:29 PM
Agreed =D Though Sesshoumaru beating Jaken constantly is funny ^^ He's just an overall great character. He's shown progression through the series and that's what I like about him. And his protective streak over Rin is cute, too ^^

There are groups scanning currently. A member here by the name of Starks scanlates it for Freelance-manga. You can find the lastest chapter here (http://mangahelpers.com/forum/index.php?topic=13796.0), as well as a link to Freelance-Manga! I believe MakiMaki Scanlations and IProject are doing scans as well.


Edward: I haven't read the latest chapters (I'm, still catching up at the moment. Darn me for not reading it for awhile!) but I think a change in Sesshoumaru is a good thing. Yeah, he was great as the cold hearted guy at the beginning, but seeing him soften (but still kick butt) makes him alot more appealing to me.

So anime, eh? I've seen all the episodes, but I don't remember the one your talking about >.> Chicken?

My main hope is that it will end on a high note :)

but with that said i would like to see Kogome/Inuyasha get together and then Inuyasha notices what he has missed out on and forgets about kikyo ((( and in true Inuyasha plot line Kikyo will come out of the grave and mess things up -___-)))

And the Sesshoumaru / Inuyasha makeing up dosnt seem like its that far off i mean in the start they hated one another but now it seems like they are closer :)

I believe MakiMaki Scanlations and IProject are doing scans as well.

Makimaki is Iproject droped it ((It was only one dude doing it all >.< )) i read free-lance but i wish there would be a HQ group out there for it i mean Inuyasha isnt the hardest manga to clean >.< and alot of the Hard manga is being done HQ >__>

Anyways 490 was a awsome chapter -_- annoying cliffhanger >_>

I really like most all characters not named Kikyou(hate her), but I'll have to go with Kagome for my favorite character. She really is a great character, very down to earth, and yet she's grown a lot throughout the series. And she's realistic in the way she reacts to Inuyasha, I think.

My favorite is Seshoumaru, one of my favorite characters ever, when he thoughts that Rin died was awsome.

Sorata
January 29, 2007, 02:34 PM
My favorite part was when Rin died and Seshoumaru blamed himself for her death and then Seshoumarus mother bring her back to life, Seshoumaru´s face when that happens is priceless.

To me, Kagome is too much the damsel in distress and the typical weak female. Granted, she's had her moments and she's gotten better, but she just doesn't do as much as she could.

February 02, 2007, 12:31 AM
If Sesshoumaru is ever buddy-buddy with Inuyasha, then it will ruin his character. He's not even buddy-buddy with jaken.

What do I want to see? I want to see Inuyasha and Kagome have some real romance. I can feel the fangirl inside of me begin to resurface after years of being suppressed. >.>

i hope though to see that Sesshomaru recognizes inuyasha. i dont think he does.

i still havent found a favorite after soo many years of Inuyasha. But Miroku certainly makes me laugh. Although kikyo's role wasnt all that adorable i love the presence and power she held in the show. it was very important. Jaaken-- i love that yappy green little demon. And sesshomaru-- the most intriguing character. i always dreamed of what he was gonna pull next any time i saw him appear in an arc.

yep-- no favorite yet.

Definitely some resolution for Inuyasha/Kagome when the series ends.

For Shippo to actually do something useful.

Maybe some more Rin/Kohaku cuteness...


Rin and Kohaku is actually one of my favorite pairings. I thikn that they have so much emotional damage, that the two will be able to find solace in one another, and maybe heal each other as well. I really think that Rin has that ability to bounce back from anything, and I think she'd be good for Kohaku in that way as well. plus they're just damn cute together <3 Hm, I think I'm going to go make a favorite pairing thread =D

Inana



OOOh, I hate shippou >.> He doesn't really add to the story for me, and I think he's there more as comic relief than anything else (Like Inu Yasha bopping him on the head). As for Kagome, though, she's not as annoying as some other female characters I've seen. Actually, Ayame annoyed me much more >.>

LadyHatake
February 11, 2007, 04:02 PM
Whether the pairings you like are canon or crack; straight, yaoi, or yuri; talk about them here~!


I'll start it off. My favorite pairing is Kagome x InuYasha. They fight like a married couple, and work well together. Plus it's canon, so most likely they'll end up together <3 On the other hand, I've lately become fond of Sesshoumaru x Kagome pairings. While highly uncanon, in the few fics I've read, I think that it would be possible for the two to come together, especially now that kagura's not around >.>

Also, Kohaku x Rin is absolutely adorable <3 I said it somewhere already, but I think that the two of them together can help heal one another's emotional scars. Some people say that Sesshoumaru x rin is a good pairing, but i see Sesshoumaru more as her protective father. (Which is STILL adorable <3)

venicia777
February 11, 2007, 04:08 PM
I know people are going to probably get on my ass for this but Kikyo's pairing with Inuyasha never lost its luster on me. I dont know if it was the intrigue her presence always seem to cause or that Inuyasha never seemed to ever be able to let go of her-- but it seems to be something soo strong that all the hatred that that crazy half demon formented (i wont even write his name) couldnt erode it.

Nami
February 12, 2007, 10:17 PM
What I want to see is Rin going up, and ended up being the human companion for Sessohmaru (pardon my spelling) and she being the one to bring out his more compassionate side that Sessohmaru, walks in the same path like his father, - the Demon lord that the rest of the demons respect.. :eyeroll

Nami
February 12, 2007, 10:43 PM
Wow...am surprised by the votes...

Anyway, My favourite is Sesshoumaru as I just like those cold-hearted kind of personality, but then again, towards the later volumes, we can see this warmth in him. No matter how cold and mean he is, he does feel something for his fellow demons? e.g. Kagura, and Jaken. Maybe he just don't show it so obvious :)

KuwabaraTheMan
February 13, 2007, 01:12 AM
Inuyasha/Kagome

It's such a great pairing, and I love seeing them together. Yeah, the progress hasn't been extremely fast, but you can still tell how they've grown.

I agree on Rin/Kohaku as well. They're very cute together.

And of course, who can forget Miroku/Sango? Another great pairing as well.

I love the movie adaptations. The art is fantastic, and the storylines do a good job of rrevealing information and not being too off-base to make sense. My favorite is probably the first movie, Affections Touching Across Time. I own it (as well as the second and third movies) on DVD. I the storyline and the enemies, and Kirara = love. I've seen the fourth movie (read: YouTube) and it was okay. A little weird, as far as the storyline goes, but it was okay.[br]Posted on: January 25, 2007, 09:22:47 PM_________________________________________________Just to let everyone know: There's (apparently) been confirmation of a fifth (and final?) movie.

I have to agree. Just the fact that we FINALLY met Sesshoumaru's mom was extremely exciting, and it cleared up some of our lingering questions (like: "is she still alive?" "What does she look like?" etc.)

the best moment? everytime Inuyasha send that Kagome back to her world. No that's wrong, let me rephrase it, "everytime those two are separated". yes yes, i like that one better.

I know it won't happen but I liked kikyo X Inuyasha. Their relationship seems a lot more mature to me than kagome's one. Kagome inu. is a typical teenage boyfriend.gf that is doomed from the start. i don't know how to put it, it is a love based on the present not the future whereas kikyo has showed how much she loves inuyasha.

nah her goal will be 1000 ;) she has to beat HnI in total chapters :) she was going to try and top Kochi Kame but she dosnt want it to drag on forever :P

anyways im looking forward to the color ;) but thats about it i mean for me its just another chapter yea its 500 but its just Seshomaru vs Inu again........

>__< i need to post in this section more lol

Okay for inuyasha ---

www.onemanga.com <-- latest files

http://freelance-manga.com/ <-- Best out of the 2 groups doing Inuyasha at the moment

Now onto the latest chapter -- 514 --

Not going to spoil anything but just wanted to say ........ are we realie going to do this story again? someone is weak so let's go and say they are going to need to do something and get stronger ...

I mean this is worse then a USA Soap it's the same thing over and over and over but with a little diffrent so insted of Chris sleeping with Anna he is sleeping with Maxi (>__> i dont know why i like to compare Inuyasha to a soap but it just seems to fit >__> ))

--------

How much longer do you think this manga will run?

I think it's just up to Rumiko atm i mean ppl are still reading it and buying the volumes so as long as she is getting money she will keep making it..


also has there been any new rumors on upcoming anime/ova's?

Ukun
August 03, 2007, 04:10 AM
Not, there will not be any more ova's or animes in the future. They ran out of money after making the movies.

As for the chapters. Another good site is:

http://adinuyasha.thebrokenconsole.com/TOC.html?

515. It seems the jewel is acting out and pretty harshly too. I wonder what Kagome's real powers are.

Pyx
August 05, 2007, 06:02 PM

my favorite character is sesshomaru, although i relate more to kagura.
[hr]
btw, i like all the characters. if kagome wasn't annoying, well, she wouldn't be a 15 year old girl, now, would she? i don't see kikyou as being all that annoying, although she does cause kagome to get more annoying... again, that is a realistic depiction of a 15 year old girl imo. (disclaimer: i realize not all 15 year old girls are annoying, but i'm sure the more mature ones can see what i'm talking about in their peers.)

gingerbell
October 15, 2007, 09:02 PM
I started reading the manga fairly recently, being unhappy with the (non)ending of the anime. Does anyone have any idea if there are any plans to continue the anime series at a later date? I've read up to the latest issue and the story only gets more compelling as it goes on. I'm sure everyone would like to see the rest of it completed. Plus, there's so much of the story that would look amazing once animated and in color. If anyone has knowledge of any plans, please do share.

My favorite part (actually the only part I have seen) is when there is some chicken walking and Inu and a dark haired girl are looking at it and saying something (the chicken turns out to be something else later). And when I asked what it was, the person watching said it's a filler so I guess you manga readers wouldn't know about it =)
maybe they're referring to inuyasha the movie 2: the castle beyond the looking glass when shippo is transformed into some kind of chicken-looking bird to carry kagome and later transforms back? i just watched it again recently, and it's the only thing that pops into my mind when i read this... plus, aren't the movies the only ones not covered by the manga?

Yes I heard from a recent inerview; Once the manga is completely finished (so far I don't think its close), they'll anime it. But don't know if it will be another season or Ova.

Hello, long time reader, first time poster here (usually do animesuki and others).

Thought I would pass the word to all the people who gave up on Inuyasha (you know your out there).

In the last chapter the author had Kagome graduate and Naraku complete the Shikon no Tama. At the end the author announced the final battle was beginning.

Finally! After 11 years and 530 chapters this thing is finally gonna end!

Manga is here http://www.onemanga.com/Inuyasha/

The thing I find most incredible is that Kagome actually graduated.:XD
I guess I'm just glad that Takahashi-sensei has been allowed to see this beastie through to its completion.

Wow Kagome goes to school like once a week and yet she graduates from a school in ASIA! Find that hard to believe. I stopped following this after the end of the anime.

I'm tempted to sticky this :XD

Finally, I can't believe it... I can't believe she graduated :notrust
And I need to catch up now, stopped somewhere around 508, if I'm correct.

Thanks a bunch for the info.

For some reason I kinda wanna get back into Inuyasha for old times sake. I stopped reading it because of how bad the anime ended. I don't really hate the series overall. I just really hated how badly the anime ended and made me think if continuing the manga series would be a waste of time like its aniume counterpart.


Also, isn't this year the year that Inuyasha turns 10 years old? Or was that last year?

Finally InuYasha is ending, i hope that Seshoumaru will have a great importance in this final battle, i would liked him to strike the last blow on Narak, but i know that task is for the main character InuYasha, let´s hope a big manga like this to have a good ending.

Inuyasha one of the first mangas that I ever readed, but for lack of time, I just Stopped in chapter 410, if' i'm not mistaken, but one question: Until the last time I saw, I knew that the anime won't be producted anymore, but it's was a long time, but still, in the presents days, there's any chance to producted new episodes in the anime?

Well it looks like this series is wrapping up. I can't see there be too many more chapters left. If I had to guess I would say no more than 5 chapters left.

Naraku is officially dead seeing as Miroku's kazaana is no more, but thanks to Naraku, Kagome is apparently in the present time and the bone eaters well is gone. And apparently, the shikon no tama feared Kagome, so now Inuyasha is off to try and save her.

It's been a very long time since I've been wanting the next chapter of Inuyasha to come so badly. Anyway, I am excited to see how Takahashi is going to wrap this up. I hope the ending is good and definitive. I have read 553 chapters, and I don't want something ambiguous.

yeah, this chapter was certainly a doozy! it's gonna be hard waiting for next week to come :darn

and it does seem like naraku is actually dead. finally! i just can't believe the well is gone. i thought that not having the shikon no tama would prevent kagome from going back and forth between eras, but the passage itself is now gone. i guess somehow they're using meidous to travel somewhere? is kagome back in her own time (in a spiffy new uniform) or elsewhere?

btw, love the location, predsfan :XD

I was really looking forward to seeing a new non-Naraku villain sometime, but after 533+ chapters, I'm just looking forward to a good ending. (And like what predsfan said, something decisive) ^_^

Yes, Maybe another villain besides Naraku could be boring; after all, he's the villain for about 10 years!! I cannot remember that some other villain so old in a manga;


And after all the efforts, Inuyasha deserves a great ending with such time

May 17, 2008, 11:19 AM
First, and most important: OH MY GOD SHE CHANGED HER UNIFORM!! :clap

And it fits her. I was so tired of the sailor thing. This is something that should have been done a lot sooner in the manga :yelling I mean, who's wearing that on one's own free will to fight monsters in a medieval world?

As for the rest. I can't at all imagine what will happen during the next chapter. But I was very very happy for Miroku. Will this volume be the last one? Hm, hard to say, I think.

Wouldn't it be ironic if after being released from the curse Miroku died from all the shouki he's sucked up? I think it would be pretty funny.

Well, I guess the jewel is evil, and it is now trying to force Kagome to make a selfish wish on the jewel so its existence can continue on. Meanwhile, Inuyasha is fighting his way through the demon's in the jewel to get to save her.

From the looks of it this should be wrapped up no later than 560. Man it's weird, this is the manga that got me into manga and 550+ chapters later, it's almost over. Anyway, I am hoping there is a whole chapter dedicated to an epilogue to completely wrap things up. Anyway, I can't wait for the next chapter.

so all this time, this was just a preview of kagome's life back in the present? dang, i was loving her new uniform, too :p

i always thought that the jewel was described as being neither good nor evil, but now it seems like the jewel is evil or at least just self-serving. well anyway, there's no way kagome will make a selfish wish to save herself. i think it might be more along the lines of wishing that the jewel didn't exist or for the well-being of her friends or something. definitely something selfless.

yeah, this was my first manga as well and i agree that this thing is gonna end really, really soon. some epilogue to wrap up the loose ends would be welcome for me. i need closure :yelling

predsfan
June 11, 2008, 03:42 AM
I guess its finally happening, one chapter of Inuyasha left. As for this chapter, I can't really say Kagome's wish was surprising, but it appears as if everything is finally over. All that's left to find out is what will become of Inuyasha and Kagome. I say this, because it is quite obvious how the rest of the major characters will end up (except maybe Sessoumaru). All I can say is the next chapter had better have some extra pages and I had better get some serious closure or I will be pissed. It is kind of exciting, though.

Read the ending, it ended as well as could be hoped and the size was impressive (39 pages!).

I would have preferred Inuyasha to come to the future, as Kagome in the past creates weird temporal paradoxes.

nah, it's ok. the final chapter was a very nice and sweet epilogue ^^

i wasn't surprised that sango was already popping out kids, but i was a bit surprised and disappointed that we never got to see an official inuyasha x kagome kiss. oh well, the part where kagome yelled "onii-san!!" to sesshoumaru (resulting in some glares from both brothers) almost made up for that. so priceless! :rofl :rofl :rofl

GAH. I just read it. I can't believe it's over, after reading/watching it for so long ;_;

I agree, the ending was a bit bland and I was surprised we didn't get a kiss D: But it's good to see Sesshoumaru is still keeping an eye on Rin. I just wish there'd have been more to the ending :/

I liked the ending.
And it even had a little bit of Rin in it (Obviously the best character in Inuyasha >_>).

I do wonder what she will do next....

I want more Ranma :< But that will never happen.

So I just must wait for her next work, and hope its amazing.

12 years and 558 chapters and it finally ends. This is by far the longest manga I have ever read (at least until One Piece gets past this point). Overall, I thought the ending was actually pretty good, somewhat predictable, but still good, especially considering what I've heard of how her other series ended. At least the ending was fairly conclusive.

I was a little surprised, it's been three years and Miroku's only gotten Sango pregnant twice (it was stated the two kids were twins, right?). By my calculations, she should be on pregnancy number 4 now the way Miroku is ;).

In regards to Inuyasha and Kagome, I thought they were going to kiss when she came out of the well (they were in the perfect position ;)). Them not kissing doesn't really bother me though.

By far, though, the best part was definitely Sesshoumaru's reaction to Kagome calling him brother!

On a side note, does anyone know what is Rumiko-sensei's next work will be or when it will be out? She must be quite old after 3, is it, fairly long series. I would have thought she might want to retire.

Kagome calling Sesshoumaru oni-san and resulting on him glaring her was great, it made the chapter great instead of just good.
