DAY 69 - A action / adventure anime?

I am very fond of the action / adventure genre. I could always use a little action, and I enjoy watching the characters go on a journey. It's fun to watch and my favorite action / adventure and romance/comedy/fantasy anime is of course my all time favorite anime Inuyasha.

Inuyasha (PLOT) -

Kagome Higurashi, a fifteen-year-old girl whose normal life ends when a demon drags her into a cursed well on the grounds of her family's Shinto shrine. Instead of hitting the bottom of the well, Kagome ends up 500 years in the past during Japan's violent Sengoku period with the demon's true target, a wish-granting jewel called the Shikon Jewel, reborn inside of her.
After a battle with a revived demon accidentally causes the sacred jewel to shatter, Kagome enlists the help of a young hybrid dog-demon/human named Inuyasha to help her collect the shards and prevent them from falling into the wrong hands. Joining Kagome and Inuyasha on their quest are the orphan fox-demon Shippo, the intelligent monk Miroku, and the lethal demon slayer Sango. Together, they must set aside their differences and work together to find the power granting shards spread across feudal Japan and deal with the threats that arise.


Well it being my favorite anime gives it plenty of reasons to be my favorite action / adventure anime as well. I haven't watched that many action / adventure anime but I do enjoy the genre. Some other favorites of mine are "Akatsuki No Yona", "Fairy Tail", "Soul Eater" and "Angel Beats".
But Inuyasha ranks up there for me because it has all of my favorite genre's put into one. Not many anime's have done that for me. Only Inuyasha and Fairy Tail. The action is entertaining and the swift movements of each action is pretty great for Inuyasha being a classic anime meaning it's not the newest. The animation is unique towards each character.
I love the main character Inuyasha because of his amazing personality and sword skill. He is very beautiful to look and quite entertaining as well. I love our main Inuyasha couple, I shipped them since the 1st episode. Just by the looks of their connections, I felt a spark between like they fit each other perfectly. I love the side characters who are also part of the main character cast like Miroku, Shippo, Sango, Kirara, Sesshomaru and Koga! All very enjoyable characters to watch.
The different journeys the main characters go on are very fun to watch and don't drag like the very long series anime that most people mention like Naruto and One Piece. I did enjoy Naruto although I still haven't finished it. I got about 100 episodes into Naruto Shippuden but stopped because I was afraid of the heartbreak I would be going though thanks to all of the spoilers for this anime. So, I never continued but plan to one day.
I want to watch some shorter action/adventure anime that includes some romance. So feel free to give me some good ones if you know any!
The awesome fights that leave me wanting more from this anime, and the scenes where Inuyasha will turn full demon get me pumped to know what will happen next. All the enemies they fight are different and very powerful, Inuyasha just gains strength the more he fights because to him it's just a challenge and he loves a good challenge. The backstory of the main characters and sorrow they each face brings great pain to me and is heartbreaking but they help each other get stronger. They become one great big family and care for one another. I love the bonds between them all.
The storyline is also confusing for some people but if you get indulged in it you'll know that it's actually very easy to understand and the story is actually pretty interesting. Inuyasha once loved Kikyo (a priestess) but they both were pinned against each other. Kikyo thought she was being betrayed by Inuyasha thus shooting an arrow that would pin him to a tree for 100's of years. One day in present day Tokyo, Japan Kagome who is the reincarnation of Kikyo falls down a well near her house, being pulled down she tries to climb up thinking she is still in Japan but when she climbs up she then realizes it's not the same place she was at. Then she goes wandering around and finds the sacred tree with a boy pinned to it, she sees that he has ears and decides to touch them. A few villagers come and shoot at her but miss as she leans on Inuyasha. Then the villagers take her away and tie her up. Inuyasha wakes up later and smells Kagome and thinks she's Kikyo. He kept calling her Kikyo and Kagome kept repeating that her name was Kagome! Then Inuyasha says "You're right, Kikyo was a lot cuter." XD I loved him since the beginning!
That's a little story of how Kagome and Inuyasha first met. It's also from the first episode. If that doesn't sound interesting to you then I don't know what does. They can also transport from Feudal Japan to present day Tokyo, Japan using the Shikon jewel which is pretty cool. The funniest scenes come from when Inuyasha goes to Tokyo, Japan. The whole story begins as soon as Kagome shatters the jewel shard and they must go on a journey to collect all of the jewel shards again to make it whole but in order to do that they have to battle many creatures in the process.
I love the soothing music and openings and ending songs. The give a nice feeling to them anime. The romance is cute and so many funny scenes!
It also has the best English dubbed voice acting I've seen in an anime. It's a great anime and my favorite so I definitely recommend it!

I encourage all of you to do this challenge along with me, or just say in the comments what YOUR favorite action / adventure anime is!
