ANIME CHALLENGE: DAY 2

DAY 2 - Favorite anime you've watched so far?

INUYASHA!!!

PLOT:

In modern-day Tokyo, Kagome Higurashi lives on the grounds of her family's Shinto shrine with her mother, grandfather and little brother. On her fifteenth birthday, when she goes to retrieve her cat, a centipede demon bursts out of the enshrined Bone Eater's Well and drags Kagome into it. But instead of hitting the bottom of the well, Kagome time travels to the past during Japan's Sengoku period. The centipede demon seeks the Shikon Jewel (Shikon no Tama?, lit. "The Jewel of Four Souls"), an artifact that would grant any wish the bearer desires; it had previously been defeated by a warrior priestess named Kikyo, and Kagome looks just like her. In fact, Kagome is a descendant of Kikyo and houses the Shikon Jewel in her own body. Kagome finds a young man pinned by a sacred arrow on a tree and, in a moment of desperation, frees him to defeat the centipede demon. The man is Inuyasha, a half-dog demon who was pinned by Kikyo for trying to steal the jewel. However, the Shikon Jewel is extracted from Kagome's body, and in the ensuing fight with another crow demon, the jewel is shattered into numerous shards that disperse across ancient Japan, falling into the hands of those who gain the individual shards' power. After Inuyasha gains his father's sword Tessaiga and is subdued by a magical necklace to keep him in line, he aids Kagome in collecting the shards and dealing with the threats they cause. The two are joined in their quest by the young fox demon Shippo while dealing with third parties groups like Inuyasha's older brother Sesshomaru and the partially revived Kikyo, whose own version of what happened years ago brings the events into question. When joined by Miroku, a perverted monk whose bloodline is cursed, Inuyasha and Kagome learn the truth: that the initial conflict between Inuyasha and Kikyo, revealed to originally be lovers, was caused by a devious half-demon named Naraku. The evolving Naraku is revealed to have been born from the soul of an evil man named Onigumo inhabiting a body created by countless demons as part of a pact and who also placed the curse on Miroku's family. Naraku is after the Shikon Jewel shards for his own ends. Inuyasha's group is soon joined after by Sango, a demon slayer whose clan was killed when her younger brother Kohaku fell under Naraku's control. Over time, Inuyasha enhances Tessaiga powers as he contends with Naraku's minion incarnations like Kagura and the reanimated Band of Seven. Inuyasha's team is loosely allied by Sesshomaru, Kikyo, and a wolf demon named Koga, who wants to avenge his comrades while flirting with Kagome.

WHY DO I LOVE INUYASHA SO MUCH?

First off, it has all of my favorite genres packed into one. Romance, comedy, fantasy, action and demons! The storyline is complex but interesting and easy to understand after watching it. If you don't pay attention then you will be completely lost when trying to watch it. The main characters are all likeable and funny. They have their moments. Each character is unique and adorable in their own way. I love the two main couples InuyashaXKagome and MirokuXSango! They are so cute, especially Inuyasha and Kagome. I also shipped Kagura and Sesshomaru but they cant be together... (NO SPOILERS) Inuyasha is probably the funniest anime I have ever seen, there is never a dull moment in this show and I love it so much. There are also so many adorable scenes that will make you squeal and wish you were them. JUST SO SWEET!!! Another thing is even though Inuyasha is a classic and is a little older, the animation is pretty well done. It's actually quite cute, each character is really adorable. Kirara is super cute! Lastly, the music from Inuyasha is great. Ai No Uta is my favorite OST from the whole soundtrack. Ever since I heard it in the 2nd movie "The Castle Beyond the Looking Glass", I have been in love with it! I love the fun opening songs and the ending songs are slow which slows the pace down and lets you flow with the music. I love "Fukai Mori" too, which is one of the ending songs. I simply think that Inuyasha is the best anime out there, the animation, characters, music and genres put together make this anime perfect! INUYASHA will forever be my favorite anime!

I encourage all of you to do this challenge along with me, or just say in the comments what your FAVORITE anime is!
