Excerpted from the Press Release:
Cartoon Network Acquires Inuyasha for Adult Swim Action Block
New Animé Series Joins Adult Swim Saturday Night Action Block August 31 at 11:00pm (ET, PT)

Inuyasha will make its U.S. debut on Cartoon Network on Saturday, August 31 during the Adult Swim Action programming block. The 52 episode series will premiere at 11 p.m. (ET, PT) on the 31st and will air Saturdays.
Kagome is a modern day young girl who lives with her family by the old Higure shrine. Unbeknownst to Kagome, she is the reincarnation of priestess Kikyo and possesses the “Jewel of Four Souls." One ill-fated day, Kagome locates an ancient well near her home and is abruptly transported through the well and into a feudal Japan, inhabited by demons and goblins. There, she encounters Inuyasha, son of a powerful demon father and a human mother, who is pinned to a tree by an enchanted arrow.

Kagome frees Inuyasha from the tree before she learns that all of the demons, including Inuyasha, are after the Jewel in her possession. To prevent the Jewel from being stolen, Kagome accidentally shoots it with the enchanted arrow, shattering it into thousands of pieces. Naraku, like Inuyasha a half-demon, seeks the pieces of the Jewel in order to become a pure demon. New allies Kagome and Inuyasha join forces with Shippo, a small fox-demon, Miroku, a fallen priest and Sango, the sole surviving demon-hunter, in order to combat Naraku and recover the fragments of the "Jewel of Four Souls."

We would like to offer our thanks to Tim Nelson of Anime On TV for providing this information.
