This anime series tells the story of a 15-year-old girl named Kagome who gets sucked through a portal in her backyard and finds herself in a fanciful version of feudal Japan full of demons and magic. In this new world, she finds that she is the chosen bearer of the Shikon no Tama, a jewel with great spiritual power. The jewel, however, has shattered into countless pieces which must all be collected. Through a series of confusing events, Kagome releases the legendary half-demon InuYasha, the enemy of her ancestor, from his imprisonment in a tree. He makes an unlikely partner for Kagome, but even still, the two will now travel together, despite not getting along particularly well, so that Kagome can collect fragments of the magic jewel. Others friends such as Miroku the priest and Shippou the fox-demon join the two in their travels to help Kagome find the jewel shards and to keep her and InuYasha from killing each other.
