Rumiko Takahashi's manga epic in its original format - historical action and romance from one of Japan's most beloved creators. Kagome is a modern Japanese high school girl. Never the type to believe in myths and legends, her world view dramatically changes when, one day, she's pulled out of her own time and into ather! There, in Japan's ancient past, Kagome discovers more than a few of those dusty old legends are true, and that her destiny is linked to one legendary creature in particular - he dog like half-demon called Inuyasha! That same trick of fate also ties them both to the Shikon Jewel, or Jewel of Four Souls. But demons beware...the smallest shard of the Shikon Jewel can give the user unimaginable power.
