Synopsis

Fortune smiles on Inuyasha and his allies when they finally defeat their nemesis Naraku, who has caused them unrelenting hardships. Overjoyed by the long-awaited victory, they all hurry to resume their former lives, unaware that danger still lurks around. Kanna and Kagura, two of Naraku's subordinates, make arrangements to set free a sealed demonic entity that claims to be Kaguya, the legendary Princess of the Heavens.

Although preoccupied with their own endeavors, Inuyasha's group members reunite by a string of unusual coincidences involving Kanna and Kagura along with an inexplicable phenomenon of repeated full-moon nights. Upon realizing that Kaguya is behind the troubling events and that she holds a terrible power, they join forces once more to stop the disastrous fate she has planned for the world.

castle beyond the looking glass, hell yes. this is hands down my favorite inuyasha movie out of the four, having watched it multiple times. this movie unlike some movies based from anime, does have a more direct tie to the show itself which made it enjoyable and familiar being a HUGE inuyasha fan myself. the art was fantastic, it had the hd like look to my favorite characters and all original voice actors were in so i was super happy. all the character acted to their lovable personalities that i loved so much. hands down, i love this movie for everything though it had a ...

Having seen all the InuYasha movies, I feel this one is by far the best of them, and most memorable. I've always liked how InuYasha incorporates the history and lore of Japan's past eras.

This is my 2nd favorite out of the 4 movies for Inuyasha. I'm lowkey sad the movies aren't really canon, so some of the developments we get in the movies aren't reflected in the anime.

The movie was good! I wouldn't say it was thought-provoking, but more like an extra long episode. It was fun to watch since the anime doesn't show funny stuff in midst of battles like the movies do, so it's a bit ...
