This is a new(er) manga series from Rumiko Takahashi, who was also the author of Ranma 1/2, Inuyahsa, and several earlier ones. This is overall an improvement on how she treats her male characters, with less gag violence against them, yet keeps the same kind of humor like Rin always remaining poor. While I didn't read much of Inuyasha the designated annoying character, such as Kodachi in Ranma 1/2, her version in this has redeemable qualities and is at least likable this time around. The overall story is also interesting enough. Finally if you're looking for a manga with an overarching long term storyline, this is probably not for you, as so far I haven't seen one. Most of the stories are retained within a few chapters with new characters added from time to time. If you enjoy a lighthearted manga with some action thrown in, this might be worth checking out.
