I think if you were going to buy one large collection to introduce someone to anime, this may well be the one to choose. Now that it is available in a collected (and reasonably priced) form, the second season is a great buy. There is hardly a mediocre episode in the lot, let alone a bad one. Highpoint follows highpoint, from the showdown at Naraku's castle, combat with the Wind Sorceress Kargura, Wolf-Demon Koga, the mind-reading Goshinki, the bizarre Juromaru and Kageromaru, and the mighty Ryukotsusei. The feud with Sesshomaru continues, and we see that Inu-Yasha's full demon brother is possibly not completely evil. Sango endures a lot of pain both emotional and physical but fights on, and Kagome begins to adapt to the dangers of the world she has discovered. She's much less helpless than in season one. And Kikyo is even more enigmatic than in the first season, thoroughly complex, with a perspective that is neither human or demon. The 2nd season is in my opinion the best of one of the best anime programs ever made.
