Omg, I agree with you completely. To me, at least, it really is not the best anime. Why I still watch it is for a few select good characters. NOT Inuyasha and Kagome or Naraku, in my opinion they are the most annoying and cliche characters ever. However, Sango, Koga (Mostly), Sesshomaru (Sort of), Kagura, Rin, and my beloved Band of Seven are what make me watch the series. Especially the Band of Seven. I come on this board pretty much only for the Band of Seven because they are a bunch of amazing characters. SO much more complicated and interesting than Inuyasha and Kagome.
