Rumiko Takahashi's Epic! Now Unflipped! Reads R to L (Japanese Style), for audiences rated teen plus. Kagome is an ordinary modern schoolgirl living an ordinary life. Who would have thought the dried-up old well on the site of her family's shrine would be a gateway to Japan's ancient past? Drawn through the gate against her will, Kagome finds herself battling demons for control of what she thought was a worthless trinket but is actually a powerful magical gem, the Shikon Jewel! Together with an unlikely ally, the half demon Inuyasha, Kagome begins a quest to recover the shards of the Shikon Jewel and learn more about her link to the past. Shifting Alliances Naraku steals the sacred stone of the “living mountain” demon Gakusanjin. Then, thieves have their eye on the gift Gakusanjin gives Inuyasha to help him and his friends retrieve the stone! Old and new enemies—all a manifestation of Naraku or each other—rear their ugly heads: Hakudoshi, Moryomaru, Goryomaru, Kagura, Kanna, and the Infant who houses Naraku’s heart. Now they’re not only attacking our friends, but each other... Who will come out on top?! And how will the changes in allegiances affect our heroes? On the personal front, Inuyasha travels to the future and meets Kagome’s classmates, Shippo pulls malicious pranks on his friends, and Sango is wildly jealous when Miroku visits—his fiancée?!
