Then,I'll show you the summary of this story.
This story begins with a flashback to Feudal Japan , when the half-demon InuYasha raids a human village to steal the Jewel of Four Souls, a magical jewel that enhanses it wielder's powers and grant a single wish. InuYasha hopes to use the gem to turn himself into a full-blooded demon. But Kikyo who is young miko(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Miko) stopped it by shooting
him with a sacred arrow,sealing him onto the sacred tree Goshinboku in the nearby forests. Kikyo tells her younger sister,Kaede, to burn the jewel with her body to prevent it from falling into the hands of evil.
The story then shifts to modern Tokyo,where a junior high school girl Kagome Higurashi who lives in the shrine. Surprisingly,she has travelled back through time to the Sengoku Period of Japan , fifty years aftr Kikyo's death from a well near her shrine.Then,she finds the InuYasha still sealed on to the tree in an enchanted sleep. And Kagome met Kaede.When Kaede saw her, she recognized Kagome as the raincarnation of her sister Kikyo; when the centipede demon returns Kaede realized that the Jewel of Four Souls has also been reborn in Kagome's body.The Jewel of Four Souls attracted more demons, and the jewel is shattered into numerous shards that disperse across Japan. Even the individual shards are capable of granting grate power , and are eagerly sought by demons and humans alike. Kagome frees InuYasya so he can kill the centepede demon,and they set out to collect the shards and restore the Jewel of Four Souls.Along the way, they befriend Shippo,a small fox demon;Miroku,a cursed monk;and Sango,a demon-slayer with a tragic past. They seek to find all the fragments of the Jewel of Four Souls and to keep them out of the hands of evildoers,especially Naraku , a powerful collective demon who manipulated the initial conflict between Kikyo and InuYasha.
This is very exciting adventure story!
