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
"inuyasha" feel to it. it doesn't quite fit in the time sequence of the show, it sort of serves as a side story. i wouldn't recommend this if you haven't seen any of the show or at least read the manga because then it wouldn't make sense. though it is the first movie out of four, it relies on the viewer having some knowledge of the inuyasha world but for a fan, it's great to see. the characters are still just how they always were in the show, lovable and memorable in my point of view. the only thing i have to complain about in this movie is the art. the art for inuyasha in the anime was beautiful, it wasn't flashy or quite as modern but i fell in love with it. the art is different in this movie from the original though at times it looked like it tried to revert. it IS different but it doesn't get in the way too much though i would have liked to see the original beauty.
all and all as an inuyasha fan, i found it to be an enjoyable movie that i would most definitely watch over again :D
This is my first review so bear with me. I love the inuyasha series, however i did not like this movie too much.
I can understand what the produces were trying to do, but the movie didn't make alot of sense. I think it was because it didn't flow that well. It was like one minute kagome was all possesed and the next minute she passed out, out of nowhere. I was starting to lose
interest, so i skipped some of it because it was getting boring.
The art in this movie was pretty horrble. I guess it's because im used to the art in the inuyasha series, that it looked a little weird to me. For example- In the inuyasha series sesshomaru's face is not that long. In this movie however,sesshomaru's face looke really long and narrow. And his ears in this movie were pointier. Im not sure if it was just me but Kagome's eyes looked bigger and browner than usual. I guess I expected the art to be better since this movie came out after the Inuyasha series started.
As usual, the sound & characters were as good as always. The characters still kept their distinct personalities.
I did enjoy the movie if you took away the agravating art and the boring & unflowing parts. Overall, i liked the movie even though it could of been produced better.
This was a movie for people who were already fans of Inuyasha. It had all of the expected elements, the familiar music, and of course, a unique-looking villain.
There isn't much to say about it. If you're a fan of Inuyasha, check it out, it has more of what you know you enjoy. If not, if might be awkward.
The only thing of note was the villain's design. Some sort of giant moth creature. I couldn't even really figure out exactly what it was. It plays to the strengths of the show in general: unique character designs, especially for the demons.
It's basically another Inuyasha episode
with a longer running time. As said before, worth it for fans, not so much for people unfamiliar with the series.
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.
