THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
A full bunch of 167 episodes and how does it end? an cliffhanger :facepalm: ... well but its continued in the manga from Chapter 356. Well in the end this one is ok but can't be called really good, no 10, no 9, probably an 8 for beeing able to kill a lot of time.

It's already out in Japan. I believe they have 7 or more episodes out right now. You can find them dubbed online.

What cliffhanger, there was no cliffhanger. It's just the same crap that happened 2 or 3 times before over the course of this show: Inuyasha and consorts meet bad guys, they fight, bad guys run away. On to next monster of the week. Shit sucks, this non-ending sucks, it was a crappy show and I want my time back.

I really hated(when I was watching it) How it ended on a CLIFFHANGER of all things and then we had to wait a couple years for final act. Yes; their's the manga but I live in a small town where I can't legally buy manga...I wanted to support the series anyway I could..so the tv series should have at least had a better ending or the final act should have come sooner.

9/10

Wow such a great underrated series, I'm glad I'm finished watched it 10 years later cuz I can watch the sequel and read the manga. The only thing keeping it from getting a 10/10 is repetitive scenes like kikyo reapears, InuYasha tries to find her and Kogome gets pisses and shouts "sit" every single time this happens. Inuyasha learns a new skill to defeat all the new "forms" of naraku each time he faces him.

I feel sorry for the fans who watched it's from 2000-2004 and who had to wait 5 years to see the animated conclusion.

now, InuYasha will always be one of those nostalgic favorites of mine, since i always tuned in on Adult Swim to watch it. now, it's definitely no masterpiece or great great story, but i'll always love it and have a place for it in my heart.

however, after 167 episodes, i feel like they just went in complete circles and got absolutely NO WHERE. -_- good thing i like the characters, for the most part.

but now i am excited i finally get to watch the Final Act. (:

Cliffhanger, but luckily there is still the next series to see!

I finally got to finish. I've watching InuYasha for quite a bit but never got around to finishing it, and even though it was dragged quite a bit it was pretty enjoyable.

-Straight-forward and simple story but it wasn't annoying.
-The art was well done considering the date it was airing.
-The sound was okay. I like some of the ending themes.
-The main characters were all likeable. I personally liked Hakudoushi, wished he would have gotten more screen time.

8/10 One my favorites Shounen series.

I don't know why but I was expecting more from Inuyasha...at least with Kagome...
The good thing of it is the next season (final act) which I hope that it's better than this one.
And after whole season I may say that my favorite episod is 117. I loved it. When Kagome goes in arms of Inuyasha.

No one should expect that this will end the series, when we know there is Inuyasha: The Final Act still to come. I get the feeling that we have largely finished with filler episodes. I'm waiting to see just how they end it all, and whether we'll get the romantic ending I want. On to The Final Act....

I had the same feeling.
But thankfully there's another series: Inuyasha Final atc.
But I got a little decpiconada to this end.

But I quite liked the sound effects.
Of characters:
Miroku (for your comedy);
Kagome ;
Naraku (for being a sexy and evil villain) ;
Kikyou.


My 100 anime is Inuyasha.

9/10.

That'd be me ^^

When I first watched this anime and I saw this episode I was so disappointed, SO DISAPPOINTED! At the time I had no idea the Final Act even existed because I only saw what was on TV. I thought this was one of the worst endings I'd ever seen.

On my second viewing, this episode doesn't seem as bad as I initially thought. Maybe it's because I know there is a Final Act now.

Anyway, I'm getting distracted from the actual episode. I really liked the Kagura x Sesshomaru scene here. She gave him one of the crystals that can detect the location of Naraku's heart.

Speaking of Naraku's heart, Kikyo was SO CLOSE to killing the infant and Kanna but damn they got away. I swear Naraku must have the devil's luck.

Overall, a solid anime and I'll be seeing you all in the Final Act discussion threads :D

Agreed! Honestly, It wouldn't have been a good ending regardless as the last few episodes were to be fair taking a sometime, I am quite happy having it end this way, after watching this show for some time, even now still is kind of hard to part with, but knowing that I still have more to see makes me happy!

Dat embrace! T_T, by the end I thought there'd be a little more to what actually happened at least,

Sesshomaru-sama and Kagura? both outstanding characters, they'd make a good match, too bad he's mine xD

This was not that bad, however, I can aggree that it was being stretched too long and Naraku kept surviving just for the sake of prolonging it further. There is no intrigue which team wins and some things had become repetitive. It would be much better if we've got the end of Naraku at this point, and the second season would be about his creations that were left alone and unshackled, with Hakudoshi probably aspiring to take Naraku's place and Kagura getting her freedom and what to do with it, etc. I swear, there is enough of plot at this point to do without a "mastermind" and possible twists to make it into another season easily. I liked Naraku as a main antagonist very much throughout the first season, but less so to it's ending. Now he is just dragging. After his rebirth at mt.Hakurei he is making less and less sense. For one, while finaly being able to easily kill team Inuyasha whole, he bothers with traps and hiding. He aren't even afraid of Kikyou anymore, which was his driving force up to mt.Hakurei. But instead of finishing his competition off (or be finished), he becomes a typical villain, which purpose is to be a sworn enemy for shounen hero to pursue for another XX episodes. That's rather dissapointing, this series has so many good things, it started great, had it going and it could still be a classic shounen, if they would allow Naraku to die by the end of this huge first season and switched to some other bad guy to do the job for the second one.
By this point I don't care that much for Inuyasha and Kagome, they don't realy serve as strong leads, they are only there for mass audience to relate to (you know, young brash male and "ordinary" female schoolgirl) I wish they would officialy become secondary characters that they are and the more interesting secondary characters of now would become mains instead.
So, overal, it was a good and enjoyable watch, but I doubt I will be seeing second season for reasons stated. 9/10

The anime would have been a lot better if they didn't over-use enemies.Each major appeared at least 3 times before it really beat up.

Love the series, but there's a lot of flaws. I've been watching this series for 13 years, I watched it on TV as a kid and never finished it and I started it again 3 years ago and paced myself. Towards the end, I couldn't wait to finish but there were some strong episodes. I'll always love the series but with that said I can't wait for Final Act. 7/10 and IMO that's being kind. I'd give it a 6 if it wasn't for the fact that nostalgia plays a huge rule in my enjoyment. I think the first 45-50 episodes were great but over time, the quality of the series really drops but I'll always love it. Thank you, InuYasha for amazing music and great childhood and adulthood memories.

when i joked about doing an inuyasha rewatch just for the nostalgia trip last month i certainly didn't think i'd end up actually doing it, but here i am. well! it was certainly a nostalgic experience. it's by no means objectively a perfect shounen, but it had it's good moments. characters like kohaku, kagura, sessho, and the likes grew on me, surprisingly. i'm ticked off that inuyasha and kagome's relationship remains forever unresolved even after 167 episodes, but i guess that's the good thing about watching an old anime. you can just hit next. onto kanketsu hen!

p.s. naraku's bloody annoying, can't wait to see that fella gone.

A good episode on it's own. The plot was interesting (though it took a while to get going), and the final action scene was fantastically done.

But in terms of as it served as a finale, it was very underwhelming. There was no finality to it at all. It could've easily been a mid-period episode, or even an early one. And the fact that it took 167 episodes to get to this point is especially disappointing.

As a whole, I very much liked the show. The plots were usually interesting, the action, humor, and emotion all hit the right spots, and the animation and art-style were good.

I didn't like the romance elements, and I got pretty burnt out of the formulaic nature of the show at times, but overall, very enjoyable.

Watched this as a kid back in 2005 and only had up til so 60-70. Thought of completing the entire thing only to find out that it ended on a cliffhanger which changed my mind. It's 2019 now, the final act aired 10 years ago and I decided to re-watch the entire thing on a whim after feeling nostalgic from listening to sad Inuyasha ed songs.

Really enjoyed re-watching it and finally being able to complete the entire series! This was a great episode, I mean, it would have been terrible if I had seen it back then with no season 2 waiting for me.

I will now enjoy the final act.

Edit: sesshomaru x kagura was great. I never cared for him and Jaken when I was a kid. But now rewatching as an adult, I love the characters. Lord Jaken is hilarious! I LOLd when Rin and Jaken were washed downstream and it paused on Sesshomarus face.

I'd give this anime a 8/10 because it's my childhood. But in this day and age, it's probs be a 6/10.

So this is the end of the original series, quite a letdown for me personally after watching 167 episodes I expected some character to die but not a cliffhanger.

Really ship Kagura and Sesshomaru

Good thing this has a second season where they hopefully conclude things, compared to other old anime which also ended on a cliffhanger but never got a sequel.

16 years on from 2004 and I still come across people online claiming Inuyasha is garbage because it's unfinished. Even though TFA came out 10 years ago.
