On her first trip through the well, Kagome meets [[{{bishounen}} Inuyasha]], an obnoxious, abrasive, arrogant [[HalfHumanHybrid half-demon]] teenage boy who's [[{{Really700YearsOld}} Really 250 Years Old]] with [[LongHairedPrettyBoy long flowing]] white hair and super-cute [[UnusualEars doggy ears]] on top of his head. (His father, a dog-demon of some kind, had [[MarsNeedsWomen a taste for human women]].) Inuyasha, needless to say, actually has [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold a heart of gold]], though he requires Kagome's insistence to do good deeds. You all knew that was coming, didn't you? Right? Right.

The small-scale structure of the story is episodic, with many a MonsterOfTheWeek (usually literally a monster). However, in addition to the romance angle between [=InuYasha=] and Kagome, there is an overarching plot about Kagome and her adventuring companions wandering pseudo-medieval-Japan in order to [[GottaCatchEmAll collect the pieces]] of the shattered [[MineralMacguffin Shikon no Tama/Jewel of Four Souls]], which eventually turns into a struggle against the BigBad -- the evil incarnate that is Naraku, a human-turned-demon that seeks the Shikon Jewel in order to taint it and become a full-fledged demon with powers far beyond anything any demon has ever known, and whose plotting turns out to be behind just about all of the miseries that have befallen every main character. Over the course of the series, [=InuYasha=] and company confront Naraku several times, but each time he gets away, gaining more shards of the Jewel -- and an extra power or two -- in the process. Forcing Inuyasha to gain a new power as well just to ward off Naruku's attacks. Rise, rinse, and repeat till it's conclusion.

* ManBehindTheMan: Near the end of the manga, it's implied that [[spoiler: the ''Shikon no Tama'' manipulated ''Naraku'']] in a bid to free itself while perpetuating the ViciousCycle. The last chapter implies that [[spoiler: the Shikon no Tama]] was the REAL BigBad that Kagome was sent back in time to defeat.

* OnlySixFaces: There are in fact Only Four Faces - Young Woman, Young Man, Old Woman, and Old Man. The difference between the first two and last is also debatable. Kikyo and Kagome are the only two characters that have [[{{Reincarnation}} any business looking alike]], but they look like just about every other young woman, and [[{{Bishonen}} even some of the men]]. Ironically, Kikyo and Kagome are two of the more distinct comparisons, given their different hairstyles in the anime.

* EvilTaintedThePlace: After the mortally-wounded bandit Onigumo sold his soul and his body to become Naraku, the spot where he formerly lay was left corrupted, and even fifty years later, nothing grows there, even as moss has overrun the rest of the cave.

* NeverTrustATitle: The first two ''Manga/InuYasha'' movie titles, ''Affections Touching Across Time'' and ''Castle Beyond the Looking Glass'', are rather deceptive. Both of those things have a very small role in the movies. This is quite a contrast to most tv episodes, where the plots are often spelled out quite literally in the title. For example, episode 36 is title ''Kagome gets Kidnapped by a Wolf Demon''.
