Kagome Higurashi, after being pulled down a well by a demon, finds herself in Feudal Japan, where she learns that a powerful jewel has been reborn inside her body. After the sacred jewel shatters in an attempt to retrieve it from one of the many demons who was after its power, Kagome must join forces with the half-demon Inuyasha (also after the jewel's power) to track down the shards of the jewel before its power falls into the wrong hands.
Half-human, half-demon, Inuyasha desires the Shikon Jewel for his own questionable purposes. He possesses his father's sword, Tetsusaiga, which enables him to defeat powerful opponents.

A great anime on adult swim that takes place in feudal era japan. It centers around a modern japanese school girl named Kagome a half demon named Inuyasha a lecherous monk Miroku a young fox demon named Shippo and a demon slayer named Sango . This show has a few flaws but it's great overall. It does however receive A LOT of crap for its length
My opinion it's a damn good show and to all you haters get a LIFE.
Kagome: sit boy

1. The hit anime/manga series by Rumiko Takahashi that focuses on a half-demon named Inuyasha and his companions as they fight to collect the shards of the Shikon no Tama (Jewel of Four Souls).

2. The main character in the hit anime/manga series by Rumiko Takahashi. Inuyasha is half-demon, half-human, and seeks control of the sacred Shikon no Tama in order to become a full-fledged demon.

"Impatient and self-centered, he was in love with Kikyo, a priestess of the Jewel."

Inuyasha has an inferiority-complex towards his older half brother (and full demon) Sesshomaru, as well as some sibling rivalry involving the sword Tetsusaiga Inuyasha inherited from their father.

The name 'Inuyasha' comes from the words 'inu', meaning dog, and 'yasha', which is a forest-spirit.
"'Inuyasha' is also a rare name." - Kappei Yamaguchi, Japanese voice of Inuyasha
