The content below is entirely editable.

Anime Adaptation of Rumiko Takahashi's manga.


Japanese schoolgirl Kagome is pulled into a well by a centipede monster and through a 500-year time tunnel to Japan's civil-war era. She escapes from the well to discover Inu Yasha, a half-dog demon, pinned to a nearby tree by the priestess Kikyo. The local villagers believe Kagome to be the reincarnation of Kikyo, and she must reluctantly team up with her predecessor's enemy to hunt down the many shards of the "Jewel of Four Souls," which Inu Yasha originally came to steal.

In the unsure economic climate that began the 21st century, with the Pokémon tide ebbing and their Brave Saga on hiatus, Sunrise bought into the success of a long-running, best-selling creator, optioning this recent manga from Ranma 1/2's Rumiko Takahashi. A buddy-story in the tradition of Ushio and Tora, with a time-traveling element that bears a close relationship to the creator's earlier Fire Tripper. Movie editions followed, including IY: Love Across Time (Jidao o Koeru Omoi, 2001), IY: The Castle Beyond the Looking Glass (Kagami no Naka no Mugenjo, 2002), IY: Swords of an Honorable Ruler (Tenka Hado no Ken, 2003), and IY: Fire on the Mystic Island (Guren no Horaijima, 2004). The TV special IY: The Love Song Before We Met is a prequel, detailing the reasons why Inu Yasha and Kikyo hate each other at the start of the series.
