A feral half demon teenager who normally dislikes humans falls for a demon-killing priestess. A priestess who just happens to be caring for a wounded stranger seeking to become a demon himself, who also falls in love with her. What could go wrong? 500 years later, a distant relative of the priestess falls into a well that sends her back in time. She finds the half demon impaled to a tree in a magical coma. She pulls the arrow out and things get even crazier.

In my opinion, Inuyasha is one of the best dubbed anime's of the early 2000's. I never read the manga, but was pulled in by this series after its first episode on Cartoon Network's adult swim lineup. The show blends elements of feudal Japanese fantasy, horror and a bit of romantic comedy. The animation is stunning and the world-building is amazing. Fans of the Final Fantasy rpg series will recognize the feel of this demon filled, medieval Japan. Some demons just want to live peacefully with humans. Others lie waiting on every road, hiding in every forest and conspiring in every town to prey on them. My only complaint was that the season arcs started to get repetitive around season 4 and 5, but season 6 and 'The Final Act' season make up for it with a much darker tone.
