Not much of a new plot but still a fine anime movie!
1 January 2003 | by (Bangkok, Thailand) – See all my reviews

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!
