InuYasha is a half-demon who was trapped in the Legendary Tree and was set free by Kagome, a girl who traveled 500 years through time. This time, both of them will have to face Menomaru, a Chinese demon whose father, known as Hyoga, came 300 years ago to invade Japan, but was stopped by InuYasha's Father. InuYasha and Kagome, along with Sango, Miroku, Shippou, Kaede and Myoga, will try to stop Menomaru in his becoming the most powerful demon ever. Written by
The apron that Kagome is wearing in the beginning when she is making lunch is a nod to one of Rumiko Takahashi's earlier works. The "Piyo Piyo" with the little chick (as in chicken) is the same thing that Kyoko Otonashi has on some of her clothing in the manga & anime Maison Ikkoku. See more »
InuYasha, a story about a 15 year old who ended up being transported through time to the Fuedal Era in Japan, (sort of) befriends a Half-Demon to search for Jewel shards and joining them are a perverted monk, a small fox demon and a Demon Slayer team up as well only on the way, they have to go after a villain who goes by the name of Naraku.
That simple story has gained a lot of fans including myself around the world. To this day, the show and the manga is still popular. I mean it has various kinds of merchandise and even people dress up as the characters for various Anime conventions. Due to the popularity, there was no doubt they had to make a movie, let alone four movies.
The first in the series of movies called Affections Across Time involves our heroes going up against a new villain only this time, it's not Naraku. It's Menomaru, the son of a demon InuYasha's father killed years ago. And he doesn't intend on taking over the world, instead, well, from what I've seen, he intends on committing genocide in a very badass way believe me.
Now, first time viewers if they watch the film first, they might lost but there is a sequence where it does tell the basic story, although rather condensed but it helps. Even if you're not an Anime fan, the film has plenty to offer. It has great action, great animation, great voice acting from both the Japanese and English voice actors, funny humor, awesome violence and gore, and great music to accompany the film especially at the end credits.
Any nitpicks? Well, barely actually.
Overall, the film gets a 10 out of 10 from me.
