The mysterious island of Houraijima has reappeared after 50 years, and with its reappearance has brought the attack of four gods, the Shitoushin, who have their eyes set on the powers that protect and sustain the island. Now it's up to Inuyasha and his friends, along with Sesshoumaru, to find a way to defeat the powerful Shitoushin.
fire on the mystic island, the fourth and last inuyasha movie to date. well, seeing that this one has no reviews on it, i will do the honors of writing it one. as an inuyasha movie, this one had some of the typical characteristic aspects to it as such: fighting demons, romance, jokes/humor, an event that happened in the past brought back, and the group coming to the rescue once again. this one played more on mythology that i found to be enjoyable and expanded on the half demon relationship with the world. it had a suiting story line to carry on like that of
the first and second movies. the one big thing i noticed about this movie was how similar the art was to the anime itself. it seems that from the first movie that was different, they slowly made their way back to this point where the fourth one is almost the same but not quite. i found that to be very appealing on the eyes and familiar as an inuyasha fan. the music in this movie was was beautiful and fitting to me. it sounded like something that belonged with an inuyasha movie and was rather beautiful. oh and don't forget that the english voices that gave the characters their personality, despite others ripping on the english dubs, are all back in action. this movie kept my attention with some of the cuter points in it and the back story to it i found enjoyable/fitting of an inuyasha movie. overall, i found it to be a good movie and i would re watch it anytime. i'm just sad that the movies are over now xD i want more!
When people said this movie was just filler and unneeded, I was expecting just another okay Inuyasha movie. I didn't get that. Instead I got what came out as my second favourite Inuyasha movie. I don't like to think of it as filler, as pretty much all the Inuyasha movies are "filler". I really enjoyed this movie. It was way better than the first two and I thought it was a great end to the Inuyasha anime for me, because the second the movie ended, I'd seen everything Inuyasha. It left me pretty satisfied and yet still wanting more Inuyasha movies. The action was amazing,
not as good as the third one, but heaps better than the first two. One thing I'm sick and tied of is the soundtrack.. STOP IT! There was one original remix that I noticed (that had the tune from the tv series) but I didn't notice anything different about the soundtrack. I listened to the soundtrack throughout the whole anime series. So why did I need to hear the same damn thing in the movies? I mean come on. We need some originals people. Anyways, I liked this movie and I don't really know what everyone was talking about, this is a FANTASTIC movie. I loved it.
This is the fourth and last of the Inu Yasha movies, taking place towards the end of the first series. Up to now it was sort of a strategy to tribute each new sword technique with a movie but at this point no new moves were introduced and thus the scriptwriter simply invented one just for this filler mission.
The scenario is very weak and most unimpressive even for the tv standards. So far they had being fighting top level demons who could take over the world, control time, and even raise hell. Now they deal with… four convicts??? Surely, where is the excitement in that?
Four nobody demons that are trapped on an island and just lure other demons in order to eat them and stay alive. Another annoying feature is the little kids in this movie. You would expect token kids begging for the shounen hero to save them in a Naruto or a One Piece film, but in Inu Yasha it just feels stupid. I guess so many years past that by now the franchise had turned to just another silly show about teenagers saving kids.
The plot is not something great either. All they do is fighting one demon at a time before the last one fuses with the rest to form a last moment big boss. That’s it, nothing more. The previous movies had the decency to try to deal with some sort of drama or romance from the various themes of the main story. This one here does absolutely NOTHING! You could replace the characters with those from any other shounen show and you wouldn’t even know the difference.
Not even the action is something good, since by now Inu Yasha had enough firepower to take on the Devil himself and the enemy demons were just generic bad guys without any backdrop or interesting battle strategies. Not even the setting is good either. It is just a sort of tropical island that appeared on the sea; nothing nightmarish or complicating.
In all, this is a completely pointless movie that has no point in existing. I don’t recommend it one bit.
Hanyou (half-demons) are a mix between human and yokai (demons). Some are born from a parent of each race, whose love superseded the norms set by human and yokai societies. Others, however, are born through unnatural and malicious means. Read all about the hanyou in this article.
