Human Inu Yasha? ya can't go wrong with that! -^_^-
corrupted_youth | Fallston, MD, USA | 05/16/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"There is no way you could go wrong with a human InuYasha! This DVD includes eps. 13:Mystery Of the New Moon and the Black-Haired InuYasha, 14:Kikyo's Stolen Ashes, & 15:Return of the Tragic Priestess, Kikyo. 13:
InuYasha & Kagome are scouting for shards of the sacred jewel, when they stumble upon a girl named Nazuna, who was attacked by a spider head. since InuYasha & Kagome have no where to go,Nazuna's master lets them stay in his temple.but as night falls & the new moon rises,the Hanyou, InuYasha transforms into a human.14:
Chaos is brought upon Kaede's village as a demoness named Urasue raids Kikyo's grave for her ashes & creates a "puppet" of her, but first she must get Kikyo's soul out of Kagome's body.15:
InuYasha & Kikyo are united after fifty years.InuYasha is suprised to find that her soul is full of hatred for him,thus creating a one-sided battle to define who was the real traitor & also so Kikyo can rest in peace knowing that InuYasha is dead."
"New Moon" is definately a Keeper!

"Inuyasha is an amazing series. The story is addictive, the characters engaging and the quality of the animation and soundtrack is one of the best in production animation. This series is technically on the par with feature anime films.

VIZ/ShoPro does a great job bringing the series to DVD. The product is excellent; menu screens are beautifully executed with and easy to navigate. The anime itself is crisp, colorful and the sound clear. You'll also like the bonus line art and bi-lingual cast lists which correspond to each released episode.

The NA voice cast is nearly as well-matched to their characters as the original Japanese cast. But, if you don't like dubs, the subtitles are very well done. No muddled "Engrish", and very close to original manga dialog so far! (Listening, Taiwan?)I'd recommend this series to anyone who appreciates beautiful animation, a rousing adventure story, romance, or just a good, old fashion anime "rice opera"! I'm looking forward to the next two scheduled releases this summer. Hope you'll do the same."
A Must-Have for Inu Yasha Fans
J. Margerum | Topsham, ME United States | 03/30/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The secret of the new moon is this: Inu Yasha becomes fully human during the night of a full moon--one full night without his youkai enhanced senses, incredible strength and agility, and rapid healing. One night of vulnerability a month normally wouldn't be so bad, but this is the night Inu Yasha and company find themselves stranded in a land infested with spider-headed demons. In addition to the pitched supernatural battles Inu Yasha fans have come to know and love, there are some rare moments of tenderness between Kagome and the mortally wounded Inu Yasha. In short, if you are an Inu Yasha fan or are wondering why you should be, don't miss this DVD!The Inu Yasha series features moderate violence and occultic/horrific themes based in Japanese mythology which are probably too intense for small children. I would therefore recommend this for viewers ages 13 and up."
The real scoop with the correct information

"These episodes are great. In the first: THe Secret of the New Moon and the Black Haired Inu-Yasha happens when he saves this girl from the Spider-head demons and they stay the night. Well, the head spider-head guy bites IY after he turns into a human and poisons him and the group has to hide and keep IY alive for the night until he can turn back into his halfdemon self. He has none of his half-demon powers b/c of the LACK of moon being the new moon and he has to wait until the sun comes up to defeat the bad guys. Then, the next two episodes are about Kikyou ressurected and how she blames Inu-Yasha for killing her: the Return of the Tragic Priestess Kikyou. When in fact it was a foul demon called Naraku who had tricked them both into slaying one another. GOOOOOOOOD episodes that coincide with mangabook numbers 5 and 6!"
