Inuyasha: A Fuedal Fairytale by Rumiko Takahashi

Inuyasha, a half demon, who struggles to find the Shikon Jewel, stuck with his past, and faces his present.

Kagame Higurashi, a schoolgirl in modern day Tokyo, Japan doesn’t believe in legends and myths until one day. Her grandfather gives her the jewel of four souls or the Shikon Jewel. Then a hideous monster put her out to their well and into a whole new world. There she sees a familiar tree, the one in her backyard, only with a boy stuck to it by an arrow. Villagers surround her and take her to the old priestess Kaede. She learns about the Shikon Jewel and its powers. She also learns she is the reincarnation of Kaede’s dead sister, a priestess named Kikiyo. She awakes Inuyasha, and then Kagome accidently shatters the Shikon Jewel into many pieces. Will Inuyasha and Kagome find all the pieces together and return the jewel? – Nilma M.
