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.

wow, i can't believe that no other reviews have been written about this movie. well, as an inuyasha fan i shall take it upon myself to write one :D

the first inuyasha movie, affections touching across time, quite the piece of work it is. the story line to it had the same sort of feeling that any of the other inuyasha movies had and the show as well. filled with fighting, jokes, romance, and the characters that only this series can provide. having their original voice actors and music that can be linked to that of the show, it wins in the department of having that ...

I loved this movie, I've watched them all and when it comes to going back to seeing the movies again this one I watch and re-watch again and again. It is second to none in the four movies that have been released. The only other movie that ties it for first is the third movie (Swords of An Honorable Ruler).

The plot is absolutely astounding and the villain continues to make me cringe every time I see him lift up a leaf to his lips. He's a villainous demon I just love to hate.

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 ...
