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.

Although this is only the second movie in the Inuyasha movie series it was a great improvement from Inuyasha: Affections Touching Across Time. If the improvement with the fluidity in animation, the story, and pacing is any indication as to how the rest of the movies will perform then I have high hopes for the rest of the movies in the series.
What made this movie better than the last one is that it focused on a canonical villain that was a worthy adversary rather than a villain with a single-minded goal. Our villain, Kaguya, ...

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 ...

Mixed Feelings
*Spoiler warning!*

This movie was a let down. To start, from what I've heard the story is actually cannon and takes place after episode 95. I feel like they "killed" Naraku way too quickly in the movie, and I feel like his "death" should've happened later on in the movie. Overall, the plot was fine, nothing unique though, and paced faster then I'd like. Now, the art on the other hand was amazing for the most part. It was a step up from the last movie with more details and cleaner graphics. But at some points it did show it's age, (fight scenes were a little ...
