Based on the Shogakukan award-winning manga of the same name, InuYasha follows 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.

Encoder's Notes

Wew. This took a while. Yes, its BD, and it looks significantly better than any DVD release I’ve come across so far.

The BDs were remuxed by these guys. The DVD subs were not in sync with the BDs so I used Sushi to retime AHQ’s subs and Prass for automated TPP. Then I made some edits to match the BD changes and updated font styling.

The reason it took so long was because I initially planned to make this a dual audio release but syncing the dub properly, even when it was scripted, was way too much work. The only way I see a dual audio release happening is when Viz starts to release their BDs, or if someone rips the dubs from Hulu. The dub sucks anyway (and so does this anime but let’s not go there.)

While I’ve gone through many episodes to check for errors while QC-ing, I don’t love this show nearly enough to have gone through every single one of them. So let me know if you find something that needs fixing in the comments or on our Discord.

Patch 01: Episodes 128 to 153 had incorrect length due to a few extra lines in the subs. Its fixed and the encode is updated. If you have the old encode, here’s a patch to fix it.

Patch 02: Episodes 109 to 111 had messed up styling which is fixed now. Its fixed and the encode is updated. If you have the old encode, here’s a patch to fix it.

INUYASHA!!!!!!!! KAGOME!!!!!!!! for 167 episodes.


Wonderful balance of action, romance, comedy, and drama. Gets repetitive after a while, but still a blast to watch well written characters.


A must watch classic anime. Great story and lots of adventures.


Very old anime that still holds its own to recent ones. While not every aspect of it is perfect due to age, it’s still incredibly dynamic!


Can’t fault this anime it has a range of comdey romance drama and action it has characters that are loveable.


i still don’t understand why “somepeople” don’t like inuyasha and kagome together


My First Anime and the Best Anime!



    I make bad encodes and whine about subs and if I'm feeling particularly memey, I make bad subs too!
