The folks at AnimeLab have added a big chunk of content to their service this week with the arrival of InuYasha. The series is now available for Australian audiences to begin streaming in its original Japanese language with English subtitles. Which means you can begin your binge watching of 167 anime episodes right now. That means it’s about seventy hours that you can commit to getting the main series in your brain in the quickest form available at the moment.
Plot concept: Fifteen-year-old schoolgirl Kagome Higurashi, whose family tends a shrine, falls into an old well one day and literally tumbles into ancient Japanese history. On the other side she meets Inu yasha, the dog-like demon (inu means dog in Japanese) who claims she smells just like the woman who fifty years ago pinned him with her arrow to a tree, where he’s been all this time.
Unwilling allies at first, the two become closer as their search for the sacred “Jewel of Four Souls” continues. If Kagome really is the reincarnation of the shrine-maiden Kikyo, can it be that she’s becoming jealous of herself…?
