It's not really one of my favorite animes but I do watch it. In what I mean by that I don't buy any I only watch it from time to time that I have burned from the net.
he is 1/2 dog demon and 1/2 human. His father is a dog-youkai while his mother was a mortal woman. He has a half-brother; Sesshomaru. His main weapons are his claws and his tetsusaiga; a sword made from his father's fang by toutousai. he used to love kikyo and now still has feelings for her but he can't decide whether he loves kikyo or kagome more. He is a very stubborn guy. And who knows how old he is!(at least over 50). He feels responsible for Kikyo's death. He always try to act tough but he's getting nicer all the time.
Full Demon Inu Yasha
His sword controls his youkai blood so that when the tetsusaiga is lost or broken, he turns into a full youkai for a short while when he is in grave danger and wants to survive. He is very dangerous when he is a full-youkai because he can and will kill anyone. At this time, his youkai blood takes over his mind and all he wants to do is to kill. For those of you asking why didn't he turn into a youkai when he didn't have the sword? it's because tetsusaiga sealed his youkai blood but then later on, it got broken and so the seal was also broken. So now whenever he loses his katana(sword), he will transform into a full demon in order to protect himself.
Human Inu Yasha
Since he is a hanyou (half-youkai), he has a time of the month; a day in which he turns completely human and loses his youkai powers and his sword won't transform. This is on the new moon of the month. His fangs and claws disappear and his hair turns black. At this time, he is very weak but still stronger than other humans. Since he is weak at the time, this is kept very secretively.
she is a 15 years old girl in High School. She lives with her mom, grandpa, and little brother; sota. She also has a cat named Buyo. She travels to the warring era in ancient japan through a well in a min-shrine that's part of her house( she lives in a shrine). She first got pulled through the well by a centipede demon on her 15th birthday while she was looking for buyo in the mini shrine. She works with inu yasha, shippo, miroku, and sango to recover the shikon jewel. She is believed to be the reincarnation of Kikyo because the shikon jewel was found to be inside her. She is now the protector of the shikon jewel even though she doesn't do a very good job. She uses the bow and arrow as her main weapons.
Miroku is a buddhist monk. also a big lech. he has a curse that was passed down from his grandfather that makes his hand have an air rip in his hand that is like a blackhole, sucking everything in. He has found a temporary way to maintain his curse by putting rosary beads on it to seal it. however, the hole will get bigger as time goes by and will eventually suck him in too so whenever he sees a beautiful girl, he asks her to bear his child. also, if he sucks in anything poisonous, his body will also get poisoned. he now travels with inu yasha and kagome in search of Naraku, who was the one who put the spell on miroku's grandfather; the spell is past down until his line has vanished from the earth. The spell can only be broken when naraku's killed. His weapon is the staff he always carry and also the void in his hand.
Sango is a demon exterminator just as her father and her brother kohaku and her whole village were. all the demon hunters were killed by kohaku, including her father. actually kohaku is also dead but has a shikon shard in him from naraku and is controlled by naraku. that is why he killed everybody. Sango was tricked by Naraku into believing that Inu Yasha murdered her village people so Sango at first tried to kill Inu Yasha. She now searches for Naraku for her family and village's vengeance and also to get her little brother Kohaku back. She has a giant boomerang as her weapon; it's even bigger then her. also has a cat; kirara- very kawaii! Kirara can transform into a big cat that sango can ride.
Shippo is a kawaii young orphaned kitsune(fox). His papa was killed by the thunder brothers; hiten and manten. He loves to tease inu yasha a lot. His main weapon is to use his shape changing abilities to trick people/demons (for example, changing a little top to look like a giant top to scare the enemy).
Kaede is the village priestess. she had her left eye covered since she was little due to eye damage She helps inu yasha and kagome with whatever she can to gather the shikon jewel shards. She is the one who put the prayer bead necklace on inu yasha so that kagome would be able to tell him to "sit" when he is not behaving appropriately. Kikyo is her older sister. Kaede is very much skilled in spells, healing potions, and some magic.
Myoga is a servant to inu yasha. he is a flea demon. he often has wise advice to give to inu yasha and kagome about magic, demons, spells, oni, etc. He always runs away when there is sign of danger and that's how the crew tells whether there is danger to avoid or not.
Kirara is a demon that is Sango's- kind of like a pet. Kirara is really very cute but can turn big and have fire on its tail and legs. It looks really cool that way. It has red eyes and fangs. It can fly and is often very helpful to the crew. When little, shippo and kirara often plays together.
he is inu yasha's half brother. however, he is a full demon because his mother was a demon. He has a servant named jaken. He lost an arm in the battle for the tetsusaiga with inu yasha. later, he gets a human arm with a shikon shard in it from naraku in order to be able to control the tetsusaiga. He tries many times to take the Tetsusaiga from Inu Yasha and to kill him but failed. When he got another sword of his own, he only tried to kill Inu Yasha. He has a sword; tensigia which can bring things back to life. he now takes care of a young girl, Rin who helped him after a battle with Inu Yasha. But later, rin's village was attacked and she was killed. sesshomaru brings her back to life with his sword and now he takes care of her.
naraku was originally onigumo, a theif. when he was onigumo, he liked kikyo. naraku is a demon that is formed from many demons combined together that devoured Onigumo using his lust for Kikyo. however, onigumo's heart still remains and that makes naraku a half-demon. That is why the spider scar on Naraku's back from when Onigumo was burned is always there no matter how many times he cuts it off. he is the one that turned inu yasha and kikyo against each other because of onigumo's jealousy for the bond between kikyo and inu yasha. naraku can take on different forms. he is often seen wearing a babbon pelt. he has a lot of underlings that serve him. Usually when he is seen, it is not the real naraku, but a puppet which he controls from the safety of a castle. Naraku wants the shikon no tama because he wants to be a full demon and to be stronger.He can make offsprings off himself.
Kikyo is a powerful priestess who was the guardian of the shikon jewel. kikyo used to love inu yasha but naraku turned them against each other. She died after shooting an enchanted arrow at inu yasha and pinning him to a tree. She was brought back to life with earth and her bones by Urasue; an ogress and a sorceress who wanted kikyo to help her get the shikon jewel. urasue took kagome's soul to put back into kikyo's body. however, kikyo killed urasue. but kagome's soul was taken back from her and back into kagome so she now uses youkai to take dead souls from people in order to survive. she now seeks revenge on inu yasha who she believes betrayed her. But, does she really hate Inu Yasha? Sometimes, it is as though she wants to kill him but at times she helps him. She has been seen helping Naraku too. Just what is the true intention of kikyo?
Kouga is from a wolf-demon pack. He is their leader. The wolf-demons control wolves of course. He has shards in his leg and arm so he can run super fast. He liked Kagome and kidnapped her once because of her ability to see the shikon no tama. She was told that he loves her but she refused him saying that she liked Inu Yasha instead. Kouga hates Inu Yasha and loves to tease him, fight him, argue with him and call him dog-turd. He comes back many times trying to take Kagome away. This of course makes inu yasha jealous.
Kohaku is Sango's brother. He was the one that killed everyone when his mind was being controlled. He now works for Naraku because Naraku erased his bad memories that he doesn't want to remember. Kohaku had actually died but Naraku put a shikon shard into his back to keep him alive and under his control.
Kagura is one of the underlings of Naraku. She has control of the wind with her fan. She can also escape by riding away on a feather.
Rin helped Sesshomaru when he was injured by Inu Yasha's cutting wind. She was later killed when her village was raided by Kouga's wolves and she was killed. Poor Kawaii Rin! Anyways, Sesshomaru found her dead later and using Tenseiga, he brought her back to life. She is in Sesshomaru's care now and follows him around.
Tsubaki is a bad priestess. Anyways, when Kikyo was alive, Tsubaki tried to steal the Shikon no tama from kikyo but she lost. She sold her soul to a demon for eternal youth. She met Naraku later and helped him put a spell on Kagome to kill Inu Yasha in exchange for the shikon no tama. However, she failed.
Soul Stealing Demons
These are the youkai that help kikyo steal dead girls' souls so that she can live off them.
Toutousai was the one who made the Tetsusaiga and the Tenseiga out of Inu yasha's father's fangs. He made the tetsusaiga for Inu Yasha while the tenseiga for sesshomaru. Toutousai is very picky about who he will make his katanas for and who could use his katanas. He rides on a black cow that could fly. He could breath fire out of his mouth.
Kanna is one of Naraku's "offsprings". She has a mirror that is able to suck in people's souls. She is very obedient to Naraku's commands.
Jaken is the very annoying servant of Sesshomaru. He carries the staff of two heads. He does not have special powers or anything. He looks after Rin when Sesshomaru is gone. He was once slashed by sesshomaru when he was testing out the tenseiga.
Hiten is the Older brother of Maten and he is one of the thunder brothers. He looks much more human than his brother but he is much more cruel. He can fly on two wheel-like things. He and Maten killed Shippo's dad because of the shikon no tama. He enjoys killing things.
Yura is able to control hair and called herself Yura of the Hair. She took Kagome's Shikon Shards but she still went after Kagome and Inu Yasha to kill them. She put her soul in a comb which was in a skull inside the ball of hair where she has tons of other skulls. She couldn't be killed when Inu Yasha hurt her body but Kagome found out about the comb and killed her.
Onigumo was a theif. He was burned badly once and was looked after in a cave by Kikyo. He has a spider burn mark on his back. He started to have desires for kikyo and a desire to make her pure soul dirty. His desire allowed demons to come and eat his body and form into one which formed the hanyou known as Naraku. It seems Onigumo's heart is still in Naraku and his spider scar keeps showing up in Naraku's back no matter how many times he cut it off.
Ryuukossei was a really huge demon who was sealed away by Inu Yasha's father. He could not be killed but just sealed by Inu Yasha's dad. Anyways, Inu Yasha had to kill him to make tetsusaiga lighter because when tetsusaiga broke, he had to add his fang to it but he was less powerful or something like that than his father so his tetsusaiga got heavier. He also had to kill Ryuukossei to stop himself from transforming into a full demon. It was hard to kill him because Tetsusaiga couldn't cut Ryuukossei. He used the Bakuryuuha to kill Ryuukossei thinking that it was the cutting wind. The Bakuryuuha is a "sword-form that envelopes the opponent's youki in the cutting wind, reverses the flow of youki, the coiled cutting wind and the youki becomes a swirl and pushes back so that the enemy is bathed in its own youki blast and tetsusaiga's explosive power."
She is an ogress and a sorceress. She can bring people back to life using her special sorceress net to catch the soul. She uses the bones and the dirt from surrounding the grave and bakes them together to form a body. She was the one who brought kikyo back to life. She wanted Kikyo to help her gather all the Shikon no tama. Kikyo however, killed Urasue because she never wanted to live again because she believed Inu Yasha betrayed her. Kagome's soul was drawn out to go to Kikyo's but somehow later, Kagome was able to get her soul back.
IY's mom/Nothing Woman
The nothing woman/Mu Onna pretended to be her in order to find out where Inu Yasha's father's grave was hidden. She is the demon made up of the vengeful spirits of women who have lost their children. She almost kills Inu Yasha when she absorbs him to find out about the grave but later she saves IY when Sesshomaru tried to kill him.
Kagome's mom not much known about her except her husband died because he's never seen and she's very nice and understanding about what kagome does. She was very comforting when Kagome got her heart broken.
He runs the shrine they live in. He has a story behind everything in the house. He has all these spells and scrolls which never work. He's very funny.
Sota is Kagome's little brother. He seems to be a coward. He really likes Inu Yasha and thinks Inu Yasha is really cool and nice.

Goshinki is an offspring of Naraku's. He can read minds. He is an oni. He was the one who broke Inu Yasha's Tetsusaiga by biting it. He was killed by Inu Yasha when Inu Yasha turned into a youkai. His fang was used for a sword later and controlled the user into trying to kill Inu Yasha.
He really likes Kagome and asked her out many times. He is very naive and believes all of Kagome's illnesses and believes Kagome really does like him.
Yura of the Hair
A beautiful female youkai born from a hair comb. She wants the Shikon no Tama and Inuyasha's hair since she uses the hair of people she has killed as a weapon by manipulating it. She uses a small sword and her soul is sealed in her comb. Kagome eventually kills her by smashing her comb.
A bird youkai that caught the smell of the Shikon no Tama. It invaded the body of a bandit and used the bandit's body to try to kill Kagome and take the jewel. Inuyasha saved Kagome, but the bird swallowed the Shikon no Tama. Taking off after it, Kagome shoots an arrow into the bird killing it and accidentally shattering the Shikon no Tama into many pieces.
Kagome mistook this young boy for Oda Nobunaga, a man who unified the divided Japan during the Sengoku Jidai. Once she finds out he's not who she thinks he is, she's rather disappointed. He's in love with a princess and is set out in saving her from a toad demon. He's also pretty stupid and has a bad sense of direction.

He uses this ability to fight all those who go against him and he wants to marry this one hime. He lets the paint control him and is devoured by the evil ink.
Rouyakan is a very kindly youkai. Naraku uses the power of a Shikon shard to make him go against Inuyasha.

The anime started on October 16, 2000 and is still running on Japanese tv on monday nights at 7:00 pm on Nihon (or Nippon) Television and Yomiura TV.

The Shikon no Tama or Jewel of Four Souls can increase a youkai (demons) strength by many fold. The hanyou (half demon) Inuyasha (his name literally means 'Dog Demon') wanted the Shikon no Tama to become a full demon.
Set in the Sengoku Jidai (Japan's warring states... around the 14th centur) The series starts with Inuyasha attacking Musashi's village with the Shikon no Tama in his hands only to be struck through the heart and pinned to a tree by an arrow, sealing him there. The arrow belonged to the miko (priestess) Kikyou. Kikyou then takes the Shikon no Tama back and dies from a serious battle wound. She is then cremated with the Shikon no Tama to try rid it from the world so it doesn't fall into the hands of evil again.
Forward to present times. Higurashi Kagome (last name first) was a normal Japanese school girl, living with her mother, grandpa and younger brother in an old shrine turned into a house... until the day of her 15th birthday. Kagome gets mysteriously pulled back to the Sengoku Jidai through an old well near her house by a weird centerpeid woman saying that Kagome had the Shikon no Tama. Kagome repels the monster using a strange magical power. She climbs out and instantly realizes that something is wrong. Looking around, she spots the 'goshinboku' ('old god tree'), a tree close to her house, and rushes off towards it. When she reaches it she finds a sleeping Inuyasha pinned to the tree. She walks up to him and notices that he doesn't have human ears... and tweaks them while Inuyasha still sleeps. She is then captured by some villagers and taken to Musashi's Village. Kagome then meets Kaede the village priestess who notices that Kagome looks remarkably like Kikyou... her deceased older sister. Kagome then gets kidnapped not too soon after by a crow demon disguised as the leader of a group of bandits, the crow demon takes the shikon no tama, Kagome fires an arrow at the crow, hits it and in doing so, shatters the shikon no tama which then scatters all over fuedal Japan. Kagome and Inuyasha then must collect all the fragments of the jewel together and restore it to its former glory.
Attacks and weapons
Tetsusou (Soul Scattering Iron Claw)
Viz doesn't translate this literally (I believe it's Iron Reamer Soul Stealer in the anime, and I don't think there was ever a clear translation in the manga). Anyway, this is his claw attack that can pretty much rip anything to shreds in one stroke.
Hijin Ketsusou (Flying Blade Blood Claws)
Inu-Yasha can throw his blood, which turns into sharp blades. So for all you bad guys thinking about killing him, don't cut him first.
Tetsusaiga (Pulverizing Steel Fang)
Left to him by his father (hidden in his right eye, which was a little strange), this sword was carved out of his father's fang by Toutousai. Sesshoumaru has tried to get it on several occasions (and succeeded once), but seemingly can't touch it either because of the fact that he's a full demon, or it just won't let him (that issue hasn't really been clear; there is also some confusion on whether he can only use it to protect humans or not, but I will save that for another section). It basically powers up into a big fang when Inu-Yasha fights, and he can use the 'Kaze no Kizu' (Cuttin Wind or Scar of the Wind according to Viz), which has the power to kill 100 youkai in a single stroke, to obliterate his opponents. Tetsusaiga constrains Inu-Yasha's youkai blood, and was recently broken and repaired by Toutousai, but it weighed much more than before. Then Inu-Yasha defeated Ryuukossei, where he learned to use the 'Bakuryuuha', or the ultimate technique of Tetsusaiga, which caused Tetsusaiga to become lighter and enabled him to use the Kaze no Kizu at will.
Inu-Yasha's power that comes from not using Tetsusaiga, which seals his youkai blood. He looks evil, has way more power than before, and enjoys killing. However, his mind is not able to take the youkai blood, which means he doesn't realize what he's doing when he's changed. He goes on a killing rampage until Sesshoumaru comes and stops him (which actually saves him). Inu-Yasha seals his youkai blood by defeating Ryuukossei which completely repairs Tetsusaiga.
Bow and Arrow/Mystical Powers
Kagome's powers are really unexplainable, but we know that:
She is the reincarnation of Kikyou (or everything we've been told so far has led us to believe she is), and Kikyou was the Miko (priestess) who protected the Shikon no Tama. Kagome had the Shikon no Tama inside of her, and she can see the fragments and purify them.
Kagome is not a master of the bow and arrow (even though Kikyou was), but she is getting better, and she can purify demon powers with her arrows.
Her soul is hard to mess with. It has resisted numerous attacks at being stolen and she isn't affected by spiritual attacks the way everyone else is. There really isn't a clear explanation as to why, but it seems that part of it is that Kagome is very honest with herself and others, which has helped her when she was under some kind of spiritual attack.
Kazaana (Air Rip)
This one goes back to Miroku's grandfather, who fought with Naraku. His grandfather fell for Naraku disguised as a woman and pierced his grandfather's hand with a magic scroll. Ever since then the curse has been passed down through the generations. It is a black hole that, when released, will suck up everything in it's path. Miroku keeps it sealed with a rosary wrapped around his wrist. He also uses spiritual powers to exorcise demons.
Since Sesshoumaru is a full youkai, he turns into a huge demon dog. His saliva in this form is like a toxic acid.
Dokkasou (Poison Flower Claw)
This is his claw attack, which resembles Inu-Yasha's Sankon Tetsusou; however, this attack has deadly poison in it that has almost killed Inu-Yasha on several occasions.
Tenseiga (Heavenly Life Fang)
The sword that can't kill, something Sesshoumaru despised and never used until recently. His father left this sword to him and Tetsusaiga to Inu-Yasha. This sword has the ability to save a hundred lives with one swing. Sesshoumaru used it to save the life of the little girl (Rin) who tried to help him, as well as bringing back the head of Goshinki in order to make a sword from his fangs.
Toukijin (Fierce Fighting God)
This is the sword that Sesshoumaru has Kaijinbou make for him from the fangs of Goshinki, which were able to break Tetsusaiga apart.
Hiraikotsu (Come flying-skill)
This is Sango's boomerang attack. Although it is very large and heavy, Sango is able to throw it with enough force to tear apart a demon.
Doku-fun (poison gas)
She uses this to exterminate small demons as well as her enemies. She throws poison gas egg-shaped balls at the opponents, and wears a gas mask to protect herself from the fumes.
She isn't necessarily considered a weapon of sorts, but she is useful in fighting demons. This is Sango's pet two-tailed demon cat, which can be cute and small, or large and ferocious. She is pretty intelligent for a cat, and is very trustworthy and loyal to the group.
Well, first of all he's a Kitsune (fox), and in Japanese folklore, foxes are mischeivious creatures with supernatural powers. Shippou can turn into almost anything (ex. a bow, balloon-thing, Kagome) by using magic tree leaves, and he can use acorns or mushrooms to call for help. His willingness to fight is debatable, because his courage doesn't always match up to his ego.
This is Naraku's only real ATTACK, he normally isn't even there for the fight. I am not entirely sure what shouki is, only that it seems to be something like acid (when Inu-Yasha cut through it, it burned his arm).
Kugutsu (remote puppets)
Naraku uses these instead of going to the actual fight himself. They are made of dirt because when they are destroyed they fall apart like it. Naraku's main ability is that he can take the form of whoever he wants to. He has used this trick on everybody, and that's basically how he got away with everything. Now he has most of the Shikon no Tama, and has gained the ability to create extensions of himself with different powers.
She can manipulate the wind. Her attacks are:
Fuujin no Mai (Dance of the Wind Blades)
Ryuuja no Mai (Dance of the Dragon Snakes)- tornadoes
Shikabanema (Corpse Dance)
Kanna is nothingness and she has a mirror that can steal souls as well as show what is happening somewhere else.
He is monster that eats people, but also has the ability to read minds. He is able to break Tetsusaiga apart by biting it, but is killed by Inu-Yasha. Sesshoumaru has his sword, Toukijin, made from his teeth.
Juuroumaru and Kageroumar
Juuroumaru is the shell for Kageroumaru, a praying mantis type thing that can go underground and likes to kill (he even tried to kill Naraku). Inu-Yasha teams up with Kouga and they defeat them.
Musou is the new version of Onigumo who is still very much a part of Naraku (in essence, his heart). He has the ability to regenerate (even after being shredded numerous times), and he can change shape. Naraku reabsorbs him when he realizes that if Musou is killed, he will be killed as well.
Bow and Arrow/Mystical Powers
Even though she is dead, she still retains her powers from life. She is a master at the bow and arrow, and she has the ability to see and ward off death in others (she saved a soldier who had a death gremlin crawling on him by flicking it off), along with evil powers that there really isn't an explanation for (several times she tried to take Inu-Yasha to hell with her, and there was an earthquake and the ground opened up).
Shinidamachuu (dead soul insects)
These are demon insects that steal the souls of dead women so that she can survive.
Super Fast Speed
He has the ability to run super fast, which is helpful considering how many times he's run away from danger. He also uses Shikon fragments to increase his power, but he has not been corrupted by them. He's also a very strong fighter. He carries a sword, but he's never used it
