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 node 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 »
Wait, Inuyasha! Where are you going?
To find that damn Kagome. I'm going to give her a piece of my mind, I tell you that much.
Yeah, right. She's got you wrapped around her finger.

Not much of a new plot but still a fine anime movie!
Inuyasha is an action fantasy tale written by the famous writer, Takahashi Rumiko, who has previous world's popular titles like Ranma1/2 and Urusei Yatsura. The Inuyasha TV anime came out in 2000 as a production of an acclaimed company, "Sunrise". The TV anime's got high-ratings and also won some awards. Following the success of the TV series, the first movie, "Inuyasha - Toki O Koeru Omoi" was released in Japan in December 2001.
Memoumaru, the movie-only character, was a decendant of one great foreign demon that invaded Japan 200 years ago. His anchester's power was sealed by Inuyasha's father. With the help of a piece of Shikon no Tama (that Kagome accidently broke), Memoumaru returned his life. He wanted Inuyasha's sword "Tessaiga" to break the sealed power so he could have an absolute power. And that's how it all began...
The story plays around the weakest points of the main characters; Kagome who always felt sad that Inuyasha was still in love with Kikyou and Inuyasha who kept on having a nightmare about how his beloved woman killed him. The overall movie is not much of a new plot since the climax is similar to Takahashi's manga works. But that doesn't mean it's not a good movie.
Toki O Koeu Omoi is actually a high-qualitied animation with the carefully-done scenery (forest, trees, & sky), exciting action scene and nice background music that fits the story perfectly. I especially admire the 'make-up theme' which is used everytime Inuyasha tries to make up with Kagome. The movie also uses a 3D technique on the growing-up forest which became more "living", (nicely done!).
The outstanding scene is when Kagome tried hard to refuse the spell of Menoumaru who tried to make her kill Inuyasha. You can actually feel her pain! Other must-see scenes are those romantic installments 'cause this is the first time you will ever hear Inuyasha confess his feeling toward Kagome!!
Though not the best Inuyasha, but there're still a lot that Inuyasha's die-hard fans shouldn't miss!
