"I did a LOT of research. Found out from the actual distributor that the episodes on this DVD are:Ep. 55 Stone Flower and Shippo's First LoveEp. 56 Temptress in the MistEp. 57 Fateful Night in Togenkyo, part 1Everone else is a little confused. No wonder! The don't list the episodes in the description OR on the box front anymore. Hope this helps."

"I loved this dvd! Starts off with Fateful Night In Togenkyo, Part 1, Fateful Night In Togenkyo, Part 2, then Beautiful Sister Apprentices. In the first episode Inuyasha goes after a sage (called the peach man in the manga, its really out of order!)and turns into a human! Then in the second episode it finishes with that part (hehe, no spoilers...). Then in the third episode Sango meets two girls at the demon exterminator village and they ask her to teach her the demon-slaying arts. enjoy!!"

"5o years ago(keeping in mind that this happened 50 years in feudal Japan not modern day Japan)The half demon Inuyahsha was pinned to a tree by the beautiful priestess Kikyo who died later from her wounds after Inuyasha tried to steal the sacred jewel of the four souls. Kikyo's younger sister Kaede burned her body with the jewel so no other demons or half demons searching for power could get it and for hundreds of years the jewel and Inuyasha slept. Fast forward to modern day Japan Kagome is an average girl with every day girl problems that is until she falls into a well and is attacked by a giant centipede like demon who is later repelled by a strange light glowing inside of her. When Kagome comes out of the well she ends up in feudal Japan. Looking around she spies a strange boy with dog ears. Compelled to touch them she goes closer and realizes they are really his. Her curiosity gets the best of her and she removes the arrow which brings Inuyasha back to life and his only impulse is to question as to why kagome(who looks similar to kikyo)is wearing such strange clothing. Later on Kagome is attacked by the same centipede who tried to kill her before. Inuyasha sensing what it wants slays it only to go after Kagome herself. Despite all of these events Inuyasha continued to hang around Kagome to steal the jewel which was recently removed from it's housing in her body. However things became difficult when a crow ate the jewel and Kagome believed to be Kikyo's reincarnation hit it with an arrow shattering the jewel into pieces. Now they are on a journey to recover them all. However it seems that underneath all of this there has been a really powerful demon known as Naraku who's come out of the wood work and intends to take the jewel for himself. Along on their journey they meet Shippo a young fox demon whose father was killed,Miroku the lecherous monk who's family Naraku plagued with a strange hole in their hand that when uncovered sucks up any object in range and will eventually kill him not to mention he can't keep his hands off the female backside,and last but not least Sango the last of her family which was a highly trained group of demon slayers and her demon cat kilala who can change size. Will they succeed in their quest or perish trying? A good plot and interesting storyline make this a good anime not to mention a good end theme for season 1."
