Using his blade Tetsusaiga, Inuyasha uncovers the Panther Demons' hideout. While he searches for the kidnapped Kagome and battles hoards of Panther Demons, his older brother Sesshomaru arrives on the scene and orders him to leave, but Inuyasha insists on fighting alongside his brother. With the revival of the Panther Demons' leader at hand, can Inuyasha, Koga and Sesshomaru work together long enough to defeat the great demon and rescue Kagome?
The spotlight on Rumiko Takahashi's career began in 1978 when she won an honorable mention in Shogakukan's annual New Comic Artist Contest for Those Selfish Aliens. Later that same year, her boy-meets-alien comedy series, Urusei Yatsura, was serialized in Weekly Shonen Sunday. This phenomenally successful manga series was adapted into anime format and spawned a TV series and half a dozen theatrical-release movies, all incredibly popular in their own right. Takahashi followed up the success of her debut series with one blockbuster hit after another--Maison Ikkoku ran from 1980 to 1987, Ranma 1/2 from 1987 to 1996, and Inuyasha from 1996 to 2008. Other notable works include Mermaid Saga, Rumic Theater, and One-Pound Gospel. Takahashi won the Shogakukan Manga Award twice in her career, once for Urusei Yatsura in 1981 and the second time for Inuyasha in 2002. A majority of the Takahashi canon has been adapted into other media such as anime, live-action TV series, and film."
