Inuyasha is a extremely HOT half demon that was pined to a tree by Kikyo a priestess his former lover Kikyo and Inuyasha were in love and got pined against each other by a despicable half demon named naraku. Naraku was a fugitive named onigomo that was burned and was treated by Kikyou and he wanted to spend his life with her so he sold his sole to some demons who dispraised Kikyou and Thurs was born Naroku. Naroku shiftshaped into Inuyasha and took out Kikyou. Then he shiftshaped into Kikyou and almost hit inuyasha so inuyasha went after the Sekon Jewel to become a full fleg demon and with the last of Kikyou's strength she pined Inuyasha to a tree with a sacred arrow then Kikyou died taking the Sekon Jewel with her. 50 years have past when a 15 year old ninth grader named Kagome Higuashi she thought that she was just your average 9th grader but on her 15th birthday she got pulled down her family's well by a demon who wanted the Sekon Jewle in her body she is the reincarnation of Kikyou. Then Kagome travled threw time in the futile aria were she climes out of the well and saw the tree that Inuyasha was pined to and she pulled out the arrow and save inuyasha and Kagome broke the Jewel on accident and now their trying to fined the jewle shards together I'M DONE YOU HAVE TO WATCH OR READ THE series SO GO NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Inu means dog and yasha means spirit. So dogspirit = inuyasha
  • No, Inu = dog and Yasha =demon. Dog Demon.
  • As far as I know I do think it means dog spirit. I've never heard of Yasha meaning demon.
  • Youkai means demon, not Yasha. Delinquests of Japan sometimes add Yasha to their names to make them sound feircer and cooler. The old traslation for Yasha is tree warrior. Because Inuyasha is suppose to be from the past then Rumiko Takahashi chose this translation for his name.

Ah, this is one of the more duplicated questions. The Inu-Yasha is split into two words.

The first one is Inu. Any InuYasha fan or Japanese knower will tell you that this means Dog in english, no contest.

There is some debate about the second one. Several sources argue about the direct translation of Yasha. Many sites say that Yasha means spirit, others say it means Demon. My answer is that Yasha is a Buddhist term for a type of demon spirit. Okay, it doesn't help, but it's not something that I understand througly, with all the different answers, each claiming to be THE right one.

Inu means dog and in the character profiles book the author released yasha means forest spirit. Cool considering that he's been sealed to a tree for 50 years and he's half dog.
