Inu-yasha: A Feudal Fairy Tale, Vol. 1
4 out of 5 stars
It’s been years since I binged watched the entire Inu-yasha anime, so I thought, why not give the manga a try? My next question is; if you read it from front to back like a normal book is it really a manga? I’ve not read many but the ones I have you read from back to front.
Either way, from what I can remember the show must stick to the books fairly well. Reading this just makes me want to watch the show all over again. But, I guess instead I could continue with the books. Even if the books insist on showing me 15 year old boobies.
Despite that, it’s a fun origin story. If you’ve never heard of it, but enjoy things involving demons, magical shards, sass, and heros, give this a try.
Majorly annoyed that Goodreads does not have this at all to add to my book challenge. >:I

Grimdark comic? Yes. Fucking. Please.
Amazing world building. More extensive than quite a few epic fantasy novels.
Beautiful artwork. Every page is detailed and exquisite.
Story sucks you in.
I cannot wait to find out the answers to my many questions in the next volume.
Cupcakes’ first attempt at an actual comic review:
5 out of 5 stars
Two star-crossed lovers abandon the war between their worlds to raise their newborn daughter while being dogged by bounty hunters left and right.
I mean, that one sentence literally explains the first two volumes in the series and I CANNOT GET ENOUGH.
Each time I finish a volume, I fight the demanding urge to run to the local comic book store and pick up the next one. Why do I resist? Trying to save money is stupid. ._.
BUT, it also means one day I’ll get to go on an epic book/comic buying spree and THAT will be an epic adventure.
Not quite as epic as out-running bounty hunters across the galaxy though. For that, you have to pick up SAGA.
