Inu-Yasha: A Feudal Fairytale, vol. 1

Monday, September 1, 2003  By  Robin     No comments

The world-renowned author of Ranma 1/2 creates the equally delightful Inu-Yasha, a magical adventure set in Feudal Japan complete with animal demons, reincarnation, destiny, and a pesky half-demon dog boy Inu-Yasha. Kagome, tired of listening to her grandfather’s endless stories about the distant past, goes in search of her brother and cat in her house, actually a shrine crammed with legendary objects. Little does she know that chasing her cat will lead to an Alice-like fall into a foreign time populated by demons and mages, and a village population which insists she is destined to protect them and the legendary Jewel of the Four Souls. Filled with suspense, a fairly creepy bit of magic, and a reluctant heroine (really, what else could she be?) this manga is an exciting trip into legends and folktales as well as the beginning of what promises to be a challenging quest for a not-so-ordinary girl. Rumiko Takahashi’s artwork and dialogue are crisp and lively, perfect for the tale she’s telling.
