"We wanted to create something that could answer any question, I.D. any character and didn't treat the series like a typical action title."

- Harley and Dylan


Inuyasha - A Feudal Fairy Tale is Takahashi's latest manga. The manga tells the adventure of Kagome, a modern day middle school student who by accident travels back in time to the Sengoku period of Japan.

Kagome is soon joined by the half-demon Inu-Yasha, the lecherous monk Miroku, the demon slayer Sango and a young demon fox Shippo. The group travels together as they try to defeat the evil demon Naraku and restore the sacred jewel Shikon no Tama.


The Inuyasha Companion is a fan site dedicated to Rumiko Takahashi's latest - and longest - manga, Inuyasha.

By the time Takahashi started publishing Inuyasha, Harley and Dylan had already decided to follow everything she did. It was a big decision for the brothers to take on a third website at that point, and it moved the project from a hobby to something more serious. This was the true genesis of Rumic World.

The brothers created The Inuyasha Companion in October of 2000. In 2002, soon after the site became a part of Rumic World, the Inuyasha anime debuts on Cartoon Network at midnight. Rumic World's traffic sky-rockets virtually overnight, and continue to increase significantly each week thereafter.
