Thwarted again by Naraku, Inuyasha, Kagome Higurashi, and their friends must continue their hunt for the few remaining Shikon Jewel shards, lest they fully form into a corrupted jewel at the hands of Naraku. But Naraku has plans of his own to acquire them, and will destroy anyone and anything standing in his way—even his own underlings.

The persistent, unyielding danger posed by Naraku forces Sango and Miroku to decide what is most important to them—each other or their duty in battle. Meanwhile, Inuyasha must decide whether his heart lies with Kikyou or Kagome, before fate decides for him. Amid the race to find the shards, Inuyasha and his brother Sesshoumaru must also resolve their feud and cooperate for their final confrontation with Naraku, as it is a battle they must win in order to put a stop to his evil and cruelty once and for all.

Depending on what you're looking for in an ending, this is one of the most satisfying endings to any long-running anime or even TV s hows. There's tension, there's drama, and twists. The ending is tonally sound with the series as a whole and manages to tie up all its loose ends from the final conflict's resolution. If you enjoyed the previous anime series or you just are curious, the episodes go quickly and it's well worth the watch. I'm really glad that they were able to return and do the final part of the story. It was a treat to watch.

I had started rewatching Inuyasha to see if nostalgia holds up. I can say I enjoy Inuyasha when it doesn't try to be too serious. Plot wise it started off pretty straight forward but then by Final Act I wish it hadn't grown so convoluted. SPOILERS ALERT:

THE JEWEL CAN TALK and sounds like a robotic man.

Once I got to the part where Naraku is able to be like a sea algae and regenerate himself and create too many clones, my interest in Naraku and the plot waned. I was just watching for the characters which I adore to interact with each other, for the comedic ...

So its an anime, has clean lines for art, sound for the dub at least seems fine they trigger when they should. Both the art style and the audio are throw backs to the original works.

The story progression is really dumbed-down, everything is narrated to a simpleton level so that children or those who are super stoned can follow it.

Characters are basic which can be overlooked to a degree. The characters whole development seems to resolve around being a modern day angsty teen who is confused about what gender they should associate with.

Sadly the main draw to this story is that ...
