Inuyasha by Rumiko Takahashi

Inuyasha, a Feudal Japan love story that inspired preteens everywhere into wearing cat ears for seemingly no reason. The story is about a modern day girl who falls into an old well at her family’s shrine and comes out into feudal Japan where she gets wrapped up with a half demon into looking for an ancient jewel that can grant wishes. This anime draws heavily from Japanese mythology and culture as there are themes of purity and reincarnation that drive this story to its conclusion. The gender roles in this show are a little outdated in regards to the domesticity of the women and relegating them to healer roles and as priestesses but the fairy tale aspect of the show is enough to dazzle viewers with its charm regardless. ca79d3bc9696a0cb36b03be6f03e52c2.jpg
