This movie, is indeed my favorite of all the Inuyasha films.
First of all, the artwork looks really pretty, and the plot of the story is very enjoyable. This movie basically gives you a little flashback into Inuyasha's past, and who his parents were. Like any Inuyasha movie, there's plenty of action to see.
In my opinion, the movie could have went a little bit deeper into the past, but overall it's great!
alright swords of an honorable ruler, it's your turn to be reviewed. well damn, i have to say that in the story department, this movie had me hooked within minutes. it shows the back history between inuyasha, sesshomaru, their father(the mysterious but always talked about great dog demon inutaisho), and the human woman that brought inuyasha into the world izayoi. it gives an in action show and tells the complete story of the twin fang swords, tessaiga and tenseiga, and of the final only inutaisho himself could control sounga. this movie kept me on the edge of my seat and wide eyed with what was
to come next. interesting and nail biting fights, drama, and a look into the role of the demon brothers together i'd never before seen. all and all, a great story line. the art, though not the same as the show itself, had a rather nice look in my opinion for the 2003 time animation and brought a sort of hd look to the classic inuyasha characters. the sound was great. original voice actors, fitting music typical of inuyasha, and sound effects that fit the time. i have always loved the inuyasha characters and this gives sometimes under minded "supporting" characters a new role even though it centers around inuyasha and sesshomaru. speaking of which, sesshomaru is a main character in this one and, as he is one of my favorite characters, i loved to see him brought into the spotlight with his brother. overall, i really enjoyed this movie, find it definitely worth re watching, and earns tens across the broad. as kagome would say, it's enough to impress this girl! ^.^
Out of the four Inuyasha film installments, this is probably the best in terms of plot. We get to see a little more about Inuyasha and Sesshomaru's father, the dog demon. In addition, we get a better understanding about the heirloom swords that passed down to to both Inuyasha and Sesshomaru: tessaiga, tenseiga, and a third that was not passed down to either: sounga. The film focuses mainly around Inuyasha, Sesshomaru and the third sword along with the story behind it. I won't be going into details about the plot since it'll give away spoilers. Also, best part about the film, we get to see
more of Sesshomaru.
I think this movie did a nice job of adding to the pasts of Inuyasha and Sesshomaru while also providing some solid action.
Adding a third sword was a nice way of dragging the brothers into the same conflict. Besides it also helped to show how the two felt about their father. It did a nice job with Sesshomaru and the kind of relationship he had with his father. Also shows the change from a guy who didn't see the need to have something to protect to someone who would jump in to save Rin when in danger.The story really was about those brothers. In that
they did a good job.
The battles were well done. Made good use of the abilities of Tetsusaiga and Tokijin. Whether it was the final battle or the skirmishes between the brothers it all looked great.
The music as always is great with Inuyasha. Whether it's the fighting scenes or simply a conversation the music really adds to the atmosphere. Love adding the staples of the series like when Miroku uses his wind tunnel.
Overall I think this is a good movie if you like the rivalry between Inuyasha and Sesshomaru. Heck it's a good movie if you like Sesshomaru since this is the most focus he gets in any of the Inuyasha movies. You may wonder about some of the explanations given, but considering these are movies they can be glossed over. The important thing is that this is an entertaining movie and one that should definitely be checked out.
Much better than the previous movies and in my opinion, better than the show. Unlike the show which has them fighting a new demon every single episode, this movie has a real plot that isn't predictable and you won't get bored of it.
In the beginning we get to see a flashback of Inuyasha when he was born and being protected by his father, a moment that we’ve never actually seen in the show.
Basically the story has Inuyasha taking hold of his father’s old sword called “Sounga” (really a bastard of a sword that only seeks blood and destruction) and the sword possesses him. One of
the greatest parts in my opinion is that Inuyasha fights so hard against the sword to not hurt the humans or his friends, which really shows his will to protect them.
We know from previous experiences that Inuyasha can be a real jerk sometimes to people in general, but this movie somehow shows a side of Inuyasha that we don’t always see.
Rather than a fight for the jewel shards it becomes a fight between Inuyasha, his brother, and his father’s power. Definitely an action-packed movie that you have to see!
I have not seen Inuyasha in forever and do not remember the story, characters, or anything about it, but one day I stumbled upon a copy of this movie. It's as if something wanted me to remember the days of watching Inuyasha on TV.
The story was a bit corny and cliche (well, at first), yet had a certain charm to it that kept me watching. What I really liked was how this kept me up to date on the main story as of yet while still incorporating a movie worthy plot.
For the time, it was great art. For this time period, it's good
art. Plain, has somewhat dark colors, but fluent and simple (in a good way).
The soundtracks were nothing to dwell upon, but the english and japanese voice acting were as charming as the...
How nice. Several characters are given backstories that may or may not have been mentioned in the main story (I don't remember). Even in the movie, they continue to develop.
I enjoyed it to the very end. It made me want to watch Inuyasha again, which I believe to be one reason for the creation of the movie.
This deserves a watch weather you know the main story by heart or have forgotten the glory days, as I. You can tell the staff worked hard to make this an enjoyable experience, and fun for all ages. Gah! The cliche is contagious. Can't believe I said that.
This was sensational step up from the last 2 movies, which were good but not great. I was hooked throughout the whole movie and absolutely engaged in everything that was happening. The characters were amazing, as usual and we got to see characters (that never much interacted with other certain characters in the previous movies and tv series) actually interact with each other and that really pleased me. I love how we finally get to see what happened to Inuyasha's father, it was very satisfying. We also see Inuyasha, the infant (aww). The fight scenes had me on the edge and way better than the
last 2 movies. The villain of the movie was great and did a lot compared to the other movies. So much improvement in all areas with this movie. I don't really mind the the animation looking slightly different than the TV series. I think it looks pretty cool and the animation in this movie was definitely up there for an oldy. The sound is pretty much the same as the anime series, which is very disappointing and I feel like the creators were honestly just being lazy and couldn't create any original soundtracks for their movies. Sometimes I did get confused about the plot, but rarely to be honest. This is by far my favourite Inuyasha movie.
Who doesn't like to know a little history about their favorite characters of their favorite anime? This third InuYasha film, following my favorite one, The Castle beyond the Looking glass, contains a lot about Inuyasha and Sesshoumaru's past. We also get to see what their father looked like, which is something you don't get to see at all in the anime. Each fragment of their past was portrayed in a way that was tied in very well with the anime series, it almost makes you believe that it is canon.
The story is very good, and the action is amazing! Especially the attacks coming from
InuYasha's father's sword, the Sounga. Which shows you how great the art in this movie can be. As for the sound, well it's the usual very good, not too different from the OST in the anime seeing as how it was produced by the same man, Wada Kaoru. Although I really enjoyed this movie, I didn;t enjoy it the same way I enjoyed the second movie. It's just a little lower than that. The second movie has everything I wanted in it LOL.
