Product Description

About the Author

The spotlight on Rumiko Takahashi's career began in 1978 when she won an honorable mention in Shogakukan's annual New Comic Artist Contest for Those Selfish Aliens. Later that same year, her boy-meets-alien comedy series, Urusei Yatsura, was serialized in Weekly Shonen Sunday. This phenomenally successful manga series was adapted into anime format and spawned a TV series and half a dozen theatrical-release movies, all incredibly popular in their own right. Takahashi followed up the success of her debut series with one blockbuster hit after another--Maison Ikkoku ran from 1980 to 1987, Ranma 1/2 from 1987 to 1996, and Inuyasha from 1996 to 2008. Other notable works include Mermaid Saga, Rumic Theater, and One-Pound Gospel. Takahashi won the Shogakukan Manga Award twice in her career, once for Urusei Yatsura in 1981 and the second time for Inuyasha in 2002. A majority of the Takahashi canon has been adapted into other media such as anime, live-action TV series, and film."

The more I read in this series, the more I love it. Takahashi does so well with character interactions that I'm not sure I'll ever get tired of it. In this book, Sessho-Maru, Inu Yasha's evil full-demon brother, is wounded but kept safe by a little girl. Also, Kagome gets kidnapped by a wolf-demon who wants to make her his mate and use her to find more shards of the Shikon Jewel. Okay, so I'm a romantic, but this part of the book just makes me sigh - Inu Yasha is just so cute when he tries to deal with the idea that Kagome might be falling for the Koga, the wolf-demon. It's probably posssible to jump into the series at this point, especially since there is a "the story thus far" section, as well as a character section that gives important information about many of the previously introduced characters involved in this book. However, you should really get around to reading some of the previous books, or you'll be missing out on a lot. For example, Sessho-Maru's treatment of the little girl won't be nearly as shocking unless you know what he was like in the previous books.

I am a big fan of every single charactor in Inu Yasha. Well , that`s not exactly true , I don`t like Kikyo,but she hardly counts. Anyway since I love all of these fabulous charactors soooooo much, I want to see each and everyone of them shine, and I want them to all be happy( as long as their happiness makes me laugh). That`s the only thing that was bad with this book. Miroku and Sango are sooo cool but they rarely get anylines in this here. Oh well they will get their fair share in book 15.
Other than that this book kicks @$$! I really like Seshoumaru and rin, It was kind of a pain having him show up in the other volumes, because, face it people, he had no charactor depth what-so-ever. Now that he actually has something he loves he`s cool, but I have a feeling he is`nt going to show it very well in the next few books.
Now(and this is the part everybodys talking about) Kouga(who I hate to High hell) shows up, and tries to steal Kagome. At first her "Shikon Kehei" finding powers, but then you start thinking he is in love with her. Later on I think he just makes passess at her to get Inu yasha pissed off.
But anyway I really love Rumiko`s writing . It`s hard making comics flow really well,you should try it sometime so you have to respect her fluencey,as well as her charactor development Illustrations and intruging storys. So just go out and buy this comic now even if you hate it, it`s still worth your money.And if you do hate it I will come after you because I know where you grandmother lives.

I've been waiting for this one! Vol. 14 introduces my favorite character in the series, Kouga! (Or Koga, as the Viz translators say.) Kouga first kidnaps Kagome because she can see Shikon shards... then he decides that he's in love with her! However, Kagome doesn't return his feelings, but does come to see him as a friend. Inuyasha, of course, is jealous, but will never admit it.
This volume also has some great character development for Sesshoumaru. Up to this point, he's just been a very cold character... then he goes and saves the life of this little girl who helped him! Completely unexpected... and it shows there's more depth to the demon lord than we've previously seen.
The only reason I gave this 4 stars instead of 5 is the reversed format. Why oh why didn't Viz switch to right-to-left format when they started making these smaller versions? It really bugs me. I mean, it makes everyone left-handed, for one! They even had to change some of the dialogue... Kagome says, "He's got shards in his *left* arm and both legs!" when referring to Kouga. Gah! Drives me nuts.
But I still love this series! ^_^

Format: Paperback
IN this volume, a side of Sesshomaru, after being defeated by Inu-yasha, is revealed as a young, mute human girl named Rin-chan finds him and tries to help him heal. A rival also appears, a wolf demon named Kouga-kun who captures Kagome for her abilities to track the shikon shards along with Shippo-chan, and decides that she is his woman. THis is one of the best volumes, with Kouga-kun being this mentally retarded wolf-boy who insists on refering to Inu-yasha as 'dog turd' as well as the first apperance of Shippo-chan's somewhat warped weapon- crying mushrooms. You have to see it to get it.
