Character: All About Sesshoumaru » His Entrance

Being a fan of Sesshoumaru, I always get a sense of anticipation whenever he shows up in the series. Since he doesn't exactly make appearances on a regular basis like the main Inuyasha crew, we're usually left in the dark in regards to when we'll see him again. That said, I had decided to list all the episodes and manga tankoubon volumes plus the Shounen Sunday issues that Sesshoumaru has taken a part in so far. For the anime episodes, I've also listed the Japanese title with the English translation. Note: The English names may vary with the American dubbed version's title as they sometimes change it around or translate it differently.

I update this list according to how far I've gotten in the series and how much I've documented his entrance. I'll try to keep this as up-to-date as possible, but if you think I've missed an episode or issue, then please let me know so that I may add it here. There is also a possibility of me adding descriptions as well, but that will depend on how much time I have to spare since this site does take up enough of my time as it is. :p
