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
fantastic ending and play up to the point where i would HIGHLY suggest any inuyasha fan to check this out!
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 particular movie has excellent art as opposed to the first which was older, but not only did the quality of the art improve, there was much more action and intensity in the animation. This is the only one of the movies that actually have the main antagonist of the series itself, Naraku, in it and I feel that it contributes to the plot a lot, having him as an antagonistic
device other than Kaguya. It's all about him deceiving people and bringing his plans to fruition as usual, and he always has an excellent way of carrying those plans out.
An interesting thing about this movie as well is the use of poetry. In the process of releasing Kaguya. I found that superb. There were several moments in the movie where I would get chills even having seen it two other times. That's how exciting and intense this movie was to me. Of all the movies, this is definitely the one worth the watch. I give a 9/10! It's great!
I loved this movie, it was incredible! It was just as funny and sweet and intense and well amazing as the series.
The idea of using a Japanese folklore tale within InuYasha was really cool. It was really easy to watch, without getting bored, as it had the comedy but intensity in it as well.
The art was a little cringe worthy at first, but I feel, as in all the InuYasha movies, that the cringe design tones down. By that, I don't mean you get used to it, I mean it literally improves as the show goes by. It also looked HD, which is
cool compared to the last movie and most of the series. In the fight scenes, it looked really badass and overall awesome! The characters faces were a little abnormal, but that gets better.
I thought the added drum soundtrack for some of the intense scenes sounded so awesome, and they kept some of the original OST, although it did sound a little different. The ending I liked, and let's not forget the voice acting. They kept all of the VA, which is an awesome plus.
The characters were mostly the same, except Akihito Houjo, and the new bad guy. Akihito Houjo isn't really new anyway, since he is the ancestor of the Houjo from Kagome's time, and they are similar in more ways then one. The new villain, Kaguya, is a nice thought out villain, average really, but that's just fine. The rest of the characters are still the same old awesome people, and I don't think they really got character growth, but that's to be expected, this being a side un canon story.
I enjoyed watching this a lot. It was funny, cute, got me excited and tense, and it gave me minor feels, just like InuYasha should. I didn't have to force myself to watch it, because it had really nice comic relief where needed.
This movie is really great and a really good addition to the InuYasha franchise. I'd recommend it highly to any InuYasha fan, since I'm not sure what someone who's not really into InuYasha might think. Everything is great, and it doesn't need any changing. If you watch it, I think you'll enjoy it some bit!
