During their quest in the feudal era to recover the shards of the miraculous Shikon Jewel, Inuyasha, Kagome Higurashi, and their friends become the target of Menoumaru Hyouga—a demon awakened by one of the Shikon fragments, now in pursuit of Inuyasha's heirloom sword Tessaiga. Following a clash between the fathers of Inuyasha and Menoumaru, the weapon is the only means to restore Menoumaru his rightful family heritage.

However, upon ambushing Inuyasha, Menoumaru discovers that Tessaiga's owner alone can wield it. Determined to achieve his objective regardless, he kidnaps Kagome to force Inuyasha to use his blade and release the sealed powers of the Hyouga clan. With their dependable companions' assistance, Inuyasha and Kagome oppose Menoumaru, unaware that his sinister intentions and alarming potential will endanger not only their world but also its distant future.

The first of four movies with original storylines, InuYasha Movie 1: Toki wo Koeru Omoi premiered between the release of the TV series' episodes 54 and 56. The character designer was different from the one who handled the TV series, resulting in the characters' modeling more closely to the manga's creator Rumiko Takahashi's art style.

In Japan, there were two DVD releases: one on August 21, 2002 and another on November 26, 2004. The first included a bonus CD with an original audio drama titled Inuyasha - Toki wo Koeru Mou Hitotsu no Omoi, while the second was a standard edition single disc. The English version was made available by Viz Media on September 7, 2004.

Comic adaptations of the film were also published by Shogakukan and Viz Media. The former released each of the two volumes on August 1, 2002 and September 18, 2002, respectively. The latter issued both on January 1, 2005.

*Spoiler warning!*

This movie was spectacular! To start, the plot of the movie was very similar to the story of the show. It paced a little quicker then the normal fights in the anime, which I for one did actually like quite a bit. The movie let us see some characters we haven't seen much of lately, (Rin, Kikyo, etc.) which I liked! The art was way better then the anime. It was more polished and detailed. The CGI was good for the year the movie came out, but compared to things now a days it's not the best. Overall, art was amazing. Personalities are the ...

This is my absolute favorite Inuyasha movie out of the 4 movies!

The art style is a bit different than the anime, but it follows more closely to the style in the manga. The animators took care in animating the scenes so that they're not simple, but exhibit emotion. It's definitely a breath of fresh air compared to the anime (no offense), since it has nicer and deeper aesthetics.

The music was my favorite in this movie as well; recommend listening to the OST.

The voice acting for Kikyo was done so well, it was delivered very well. Kagome as well. (You'll see what I ...

Mixed Feelings
Skippable. This story really has nothing to do with the main plot. Naraku's name doesn't even appear once. Nothing important happens in this movie.

With that out of the way, this movie came off to me as a bland side story that went on too long. The villain is one dimensional, and his defeat was basically a love-conquers-all trope, but with some romantic drama. The pacing is slow with a rushed conclusion. It could have used the time to explore the villain a bit more, and make him more than an old, power hungry guy with a vendetta. Instead we got a sesshoumaru cameo. He got ...
