Movie Reviews

Anime movie of the year
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Having already seen this film in Japanese, I can't wait to see how the English version of it will turn out. At the beginning of the movie, 200 years before the actual series starts, you get to meet up with a teenage Sesshoumaru, a new-born Inuyasha, the mighty Inu no Taisho, and Inuyasha's mother Izayoi. Shortly after saving Izayoi and his new-born son, though, the Inu no Taisho is killed, and the story switches back over to 700 years later in Kagome's time.

You learn about a new sword that the Inu no Taisho possessed. It is a malicious sword named Sou'unga, which can only be handled by the late dog demon and his eldest son Sesshoumaru. Inuyasha comes across it after the seal on the evil sword is broken and it ends up destroying the city of Tokyo. After picking up the sword, Inuyasha is possessed by it, almost kills Kagome, and disappears back into the well.

This movie is really quite fantastic. Although the animation might not be as good as some people are hoping for, the plot itself is actually very nicely done. Sesshoumaru actually shows more than 3 emotions during the course of the movie, and the villians actually go farther than being just some evil human dude. Even if you didn't find yourself a fan of the first two movies, I would definitely recommend this movie for your Inuyasha collection. And if you don't have an Inuyasha collection, you can just start one by buying this movie.

Animation: 4 stars
Storyline: 5 stars
Action: 4.5 stars

Rated PG-13 for violence, swearing, and some groping.
The best Inuyasha movie yet!

"The second movie definitely provided us a bit of a change of a pace by showing how the heroes would go if they ever defeated Naraku, but this one definitely rocks the usual formula. Starting with a flashback that goes to the night Inuyasha was born, offering a bit into the past of his father, we go to present day in the series. A deadly sword called Sounga is awakened and starts its destruction by destroying Kagome's hometown(!). It then possesses Inuyasha, turns him evil, and sets him on a destruction spree in the Feudal Era(double !!). Eventually though, the sword settles on a new host... Takemaru, a deceased lord who hated Inuyasha and Sesshomaru's father, and in a nice touch of continuity allows him to wield the sword by giving him Sesshomaru's decapitated arm. Both brothers want to destroy the sword on their own, but the only possible way is to work together. Can Inuyasha and Sesshomaru, along with the usual gang, as well as Totosai believe it or not, actually defeat their deadliest threat yet? The story is good and the entire film is well animated, especially the battle scenes. The usual voice cast, for both versions, is also great as usual. As the other two films did, there is a "behind the series" featurette that's told entirely in Japanese that recaps all the importants events that lead up to the film. There's also all the theatrical trailers, as well as one for the 4th film if you watch long enough. Inuyasha fans should definitely check this out. Some non-fans may want to watch the first two seasons to fully get the scope of the series despite the featurette included, though."
This was my favorite of all 4 movies!

"I have seen all four Inuyasha movies, and I must say this one was by far my favorite! It's the only time you will see Inuyasha and Sesshomaru fighting on the same side, although they would never admit it. Also, in this movie, we finally get to hear Miroku's feelings for Sango!

This is a must see movie!"

"The third Inuyasha movie is the best. It has his father in it and everything. And the moment we've been waiting for the clash of the brothers Inuyasha versus Shashomarru. This movie is so amazing any Inuyasha fan or Anime fan should buy this movie its worth the money. But they could've giving the DVD a lot more special features. But it has a pretty good amount not the good amount that I was expecting anyways the movie is awsome its well worth the money. Totosai is so halarious in this movie. Anyways buy this movie I had no regrets buying this movie for 24$ at the mall. Get this movie its awsome!!!!"
