Inuyasha was the first anime I really got into and it is simultaneously the best and worse thing that has ever happened to me.
they already have and they still love us. bless their souls
I’m pretty sure the staff cannot take ideas from fanfiction and fancomics(/fanart). There’s a ton of legal issues related to that. I think people working on animated shows (and probably live-action ones too) are told not to read fanfiction.
