Nendoroids have done a fantastic job of representing some of the biggest anime franchises around, with figurines created for the likes of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, Yu Yu Hakusho, Demon Slayer, and even new properties such as Promare. Now, Good Smile is looking to dive into the past once again with a Nendoroid created for the half-demon anime character that is Inuyasha. While an official look at Inuyasha's Nendoroid has yet to be revealed, the fans had spoken and the popular demon will be getting a figurine of his own in the future.
Good Smile revealed the results of their recent poll via their Official Twitter Account, asking what characters from both anime and otherwise fans would like to see, with Inuyasha managing to take home the victory and claim a spot as an upcoming Nendoroid for fans to purchase:
The results are in for the Next Nendoroid Survey! After counting up your votes, we're excited to announce 6 new Nendoroids in the works!

Originally created by Rumiko Takahashi for Shogakukan's Weekly Shonen Sunday magazine in 1996, Inuyasha follows the story of high school girl Kagome Higurashi. In it, Kagome finds herself thrown into the feudal era where she discovers her connection to a late priestess named Kikyo. Charged with protecting a relic known as the Sacred Jewel, Kagome teams up with a half-demon named Inuyasha who covets its power, and the manga details their journeys through Japan as they attempt to piece together the powerful gem. The series was adapted to a popular anime that ran for a number of years, ultimately covering the entire run of the manga.
The series has been licensed by Viz Media for an English language release, and they officially describe Inuyasha as such, "After falling into an old well and into ancient Japan, Kagome discovers that her destiny is linked to the dog-like half demon called Inuyasha! As Kagome learns more about her connection to the past and to Inuyasha, she comes into conflict with the terrible demons that are drawn to the Shikon Jewel, including Inuyasha's own half brother, Sesshomaru. Finding the shards of the Shikon Jewel is going to require powerful magic, strange allies, and a strong heart. Kagome's got plenty of heart, but she's going to need Inuyasha's help for the rest of it, and he may not be so willing to lend a hand!"
