InuYasha, full title InuYasha, a Feudal Fairy Tale, is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Rumiko Takahashi. The story centers on a time-traveling middle school student, a half-demon, a lecherous monk, a fox demon, a demon slayer, and a nekomata during the Sengoku period who seek to find all the fragments of the Jewel of Four Souls (Shikon no Tama) and to keep them out of the hands of evildoers, especially Naraku.
The manga was adapted into a 167 episode anime series produced by Sunrise. Masashi Ikeda directed the first forty-four episodes, while Yasunao Aoki directed the remainder of the series. InuYasha premiered on Yomiuri TV in Japan on 16 October 2000 and ran until 13 September 2004. The television run of the anime ceased without a conclusion to the story. As of April 2008, the manga is still being released in Japan, but has recently begun its final story arc.
In 2002, the manga won the Shogakukan Manga Award for best shōnen title of the year.
