犬夜叉の辞書 (inuyasha no jisho)! I wanted to go more in depth than usual dictionaries you'll find on similar sites. I have include romanji, and kanji of the word listed. I hope that you find this more useful than just listing romanji. Please note that there are many varaions of one word, such as "anata". There are many Kanji variations of one word, such as "arigatou gozaimasu". I have tried to list what is relevant and from what I can tell, most used and written with in Japanese.

Please note: If you see jumbled words or square boxes for translation, your browser must have installed Japanese characters in order to view them correctly.
