"I was worried about buying this, because at first it didn't say it had English dub, but it's the legit limited edition 7th season! It comes with episodes 147-160 of Season Six and episodes 161-167 of Season Seven... so this is the the final season, and if you have all the others, this will complete your set.
It comes with Special Footage - The Finale with the Japanese Cast/Questions for the English Language Voice Actors. Stereo. Bilingual (Japanese & English). English Subtitles, Textless Opening & Ending, and 21 episodes. This limited edition comes with a rare Inuyasha figure from the final episodes!
He's all demony, with the face markings, and it comes with Adamant Barrage Tetsusaiga which is all shiny and beautiful. It's really awesome and rare.
This box set is way more shiny than the others, you can actually see yourself in the outside casing of the dvds. =3 It's the best one yet, in my opinion, and well worth the money since you get the great figure too! I love Inuyasha and have been collecting the seasons for like *counts* at least 6 years! I'm so glad I've finally got the last one and don't have to wait and wait and wait for the next season! I recommend this to any Inuyasha fan. I'm going to list the episodes next for anyone who's wondering and that's all for this review. Hope I help some people who are worried that since this looks different and doesn't say LIMITED EDITION in big letters in the title that it might not be legit, but I promise you it is. Says VIZ and everything. ;) My only regret is that the Inuyasha series stopped way before the end of the manga, but that has nothing to do with this boxset, since the anime series has only 167 episodes.

"It's hard to know where to start with something like InuYasha. The series is famous for having massive amounts of filler, an overly dramatic love story and, most importantly, an enormous horde of crazy fangirls.
Despite all of this, InuYasha, a self-proclaimed "feudal fairytale," is still a fun, humorous, and highly entertaining anime that gives viewers something fresh and exciting to enjoy. Sadly, this is the last season of the anime version, while the original manga version lasted about twenty volumes past the ending point of the series. While the anime did its best to remain faithful to the original, this constantly led to large amounts of "filler" while the anime waited for the manga to catch up, and the fact that the manga was not yet concluded when the anime ended leaves the series incomplete and the ending unsatisfying.
While this is not a fault of the anime itself, it most likely sprung from some kind of corporate issue at the studio producing the anime. They simply decided that enough was enough and that they could not wait around forever for the manga to end. Despite this setback, the final season of InuYasha still delivers non-stop action, entertaining characters, heart-wrenching drama, gut-busting humor, and a surprisingly unique approach for a shojo story.
The episodes included here document the intense final battle with the evil demon Naraku, Kikyo's sudden return to the world of the living and InuYasha's continued rivalry with his half-brother Sesshomaru. The drama continues at every turn as the stakes become higher and the final shard of the sacred jewel seems to fall further into Naraku's hands.
This Limited Deluxe Edition of season seven is truly the ultimate American fan edition of the series. It includes a limited edition InuYasha figurine (complete with Tetsusaiga), a special behind-the-scenes look at the show's finale featuring the Japanese cast, and a Q&A with the English language voice actors.
The set comes with four complete discs that feature episodes 147-167 of the anime. Viewers also have the option of watching the English dub or the original Japanese version with English subtitles.
While purists will soak up the subtitled version, the English dub makes the series very accessible to more casual fans. The dub is also surprisingly well-done and the translation is very close to the original; there doesn't even seem to be any censorship in the anime's content. The English voice cast really did a wonderful job of portraying the characters, particularly InuYasha, Kagome, and Miroku.
Even though this series tends to get a bad reputation because of its fans, it's really a fun series. It may take a little while to get past the uber-fandom and the howling fangirls, but if you can ignore all of that, InuYasha is a funny, entertaining, gut-wrenching drama with complex characters in a truly unique setting. Try to at least give it a chance -- you might just be surprised."
