According to Weekly Shounen Sunday vol.34, a new season of Inu Yasha was announced to be aired from this autumn. It's the final chapter of the series titled "Inu Yasha Kanketsu-hen" and the original staff and cast will animate the manga volumes 36 - 56.
I always thought they would leave it like it was. I mean I only watched episodes here and there on Cartoon Network but if they actually finish the story as an anime I might consider watching the other episodes. And this gives me hope that when d.gray-man gets far enough or finishes that they will bring it back to finish the story animated. =D
finally been waiting for this, read the whole manga series and wanted to see it animated the rest of the way. and to those who say that 162 episodes is too much, the manga is 500+ chapters long so basically 162 episodes is not enough.
great news.. i stoped watching this anime for a while because how it ends..
never expected them to complete it.. coz i heard the ending was different than the manga or something..
but this just WOW.. i have to complete watching the anime then..
(i guess now we have some hope for D.Gray man)
lately there is alot of remakes for old anime like dragon ball and FMA..
Wow, I would have never expected this. I was sure the anime just played it safe and that was the end of it. I saw the series end on Adult Swim, now I have a reason to start buying the seasons on DVD now.
cant wait for this ^^, since i finished the anime in 10th grade i been debating reading the manga to see how it actually end's and i only buy manga for the most part not read online so this is a lot cheaper also ^^
I started watching this show way back in middle school...and now I'm a high school graduate. This took much too long, but i will watch it to finish what I've started way back when... as one of the first animes I've watched.
Not a surprise at all. Sunrise stated when they caught up to the manga and ended the first run that they'd like to continue it once the manga ended. Then the manga ended last year, and that Black Tessaiga OVA was made with original staff/cast... which was basically saying "yeah, we have everyone back together, we're going to continue the series."
It's too profitable for them to ignore, for one thing. Still a big popular franchise in Japan and certainly in the US. And hopefully this means we'll get it in HD, though just 16:9 would be nice even if not HD.
