Just a bit of a backstory. You guys can skip ahead if you want. :-) I was introduced to the Inuyasha anime by my Korean roomate Kevin in college. While I consider myself an avid anime fan, this guy was an even more hardcore anime lover than me. He not only ran his own sophisticated anime trading ring (at that time there was no Youtube to make things easy for us ^_^) from our dorm room supplying anime to the rest of college, he was even part of a fansub group. As a result I got exposed to a ton of cool series that I probably never would have watched on my own (Vampire Hunter D, Rurouni Kenshin, Rockman.EXE, Ayashi No Ceres, Trigun, Scryed, Star Ocean EX and Inuyasha (which had just aired its first couple of episodes in Japan at the time).)
When Kevin first introduced me to Inuyasha, I wasn't really that impressed. The most noticable thing to me was the main female protagonist looked like Sailor Mars. However, three or four episodes later...(about the time Yura showed up ^_^) I was completely hooked. Not only would I watch the episodes at school during the week, I would watch them again over the weekend with my brothers who always looked forward to seeing this anime as well. It used to be really exciting when a new Inuyasha episode would come out.
Ok everyone, I suppose that's enough talk for one night. Thanks for bearing with me through a particularly wordy entry and as usual...more to come soon!!
