Inu-Yasha comes to Cartoon Network
Inu-yasha, Rumiko Takahashi's latest animated series will appear this Saturday, (and perhaps later Saturdays) on Cartoon Networks "Adult Swim" programming block.
This series concerns a modern Tokyo girl, a dead ancient priestess, and a half-demon who has feelings for both (or are they one). The half-demon (Inu-yasha) has some dog-like traits in roughly the manner of the reoccuring Japanese cat-girl.
At least six shows are sheduled.Rumiko Takahashi is known for various comic and animated series including One Pound Gospel, Masion Ikkoku, Ranma 1/2, and Urusei Yatsura. Many of these works concern characters trying to maintain their place in contemporary society in the face of absurd alien, mystic, etc. intervention, with hilarity ensuing.
Inu-yasha could be perhaps classified as a romantic-horror-comedy.
