It's not a bad DVD box set, but it could've been better

This set includes five DVDs that encompass all twenty-seven episodes in the first season. The first three discs contain five episodes, the fourth disc contains six episodes, and the fifth disc contains six episodes and bonus features.

For special features, there is a character relationship guide, a collection of trailers for Inuyasha: Affections Touching Across Time, and textless versions of the opening credits and both versions of the ending credits that appear in the first season.

I was a little disappointed that all the special features were put onto one disc. Since all the features were put on a disc with six episodes, it shows just how much wasted space there is on the first three discs in the set. I also wish there had been a little more in the way of extras.

But even with those minor flaws, this set is worth it if you're a fan of the series.

If you have seen Inuyasha on DVD or the cartoon network then you already know that Inuyasha is an important set to have in your anime collection but for those who don't know. The characters have such a deep background and such a troubled past and trouble awaiting them in there future.    I bet fans are waiting to see the future of kagome and Inuyasha. There's so many things going on in this story because of the 5 characters it's almost hard to keep up but if your not informed …

About this movie

Wiki

Based on the manga by Rumiko Takahashi, the creator ofRanma 1/2andUrusei Yatsura, theInu-YashaTV series (2000) blends elements of Japanese folklore and familiar anime devices into a deftly imaginative blend of humor and adventure, an extremely entertaining series that never falls into cliché. Beginning the first season's 27 episodes, Kagome Higurashi, a normal 15-year-old girl, falls down a dry well--and finds herself in the feudal past, 50 years after her ancestress Kikyo imprisoned the half-human/half-demon Inu-Yasha. As the reincarnation of Kikyo, Kagome possesses a magic jewel that greatly increases the power of demons. Kagome fetters Inu-Yasha with the help of her priestess-ancestor Kaede, and when the jewel is shattered Kagome and Inu-Yasha must ally to recapture the fragments.

The series really begins to hit its stride when Kagome and Inu-Yasha, while bickering, nevertheless prove an effective team against the demons they encounter in the Warring States netherworld. Two new characters create complications. Shippo, an orphan fox spirit, meets Kagome and Inu-Yasha in the Warring States period. A more conventional but potentially more dangerous addition is Hojo, a handsome upper classman at Kagome's school, who's concerned about her recent absences. His understated good manners contrast sharply with the prickly Inu-Yasha--just as Kagome is beginning to recognize his good points.

In the multi-part adventure that begins with "Kikyo's Stolen Ashes," the filmmakers ...
