Quotes

Takemaru: The night of a lunar eclipse. Excellent. It is the perfect time to slay a demon.
[Goes to Izayoi]
Izayoi: Who is it?
Takemaru: It is I, Takemaru of Setsuna.
Izayoi: Takemaru... oh, thank goodness you've arrived. You must gather the men standing guard outside and leave the grounds at once. Please do as I say. I fear there is no one strong enough to challenge him.
Takemaru: My lady... I have long felt a deep connection with you, as I'm sure you are aware. Even though I realize full well that your heart has been captured by a demon.

A Surprisingly Good Film
16 April 2005 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

"Tenka Hadou No Ken" or "Sword of World Conquest" (SOWC) may easily be the best Inuyasha movie ever. My guess is that if you're curious about seeing the third Inuyasha film then you are already an Inuyasha fan, so I'll write this for all you "otakus" out there!

In SOWC, the ghost Soyosama, a former counsel of Inuyasha's father, releases the evil demonic sword Sounga from its sheath after containing it for 700 years. Somehow the sword has ended up in the Higurashi family temple in modern-day Tokyo and Inuyasha and Kagome everywhere throughout Japan. The Sounga is connected intimately with Inuyasha's past and we learn more about Inuyasha's family history and the existence of the three great swords, including the Sounga.

Not only is SOWC a genuine movie (and not just a long tiresome episode), it is more surprisingly a GOOD film! SOWC is well-scripted with excellent pacing, rich setting, and an exciting climax. You can tell that the Inuyasha movie production team finally took the time to learn how a film differs from an animated sitcom. For fans, it fills the gap in our understanding of Inuyasha's origins and the history between his demon father and human mother.

I highly recommend this film and hope the Inuyasha 4: Fire on the Mystical Island proves to be as good or even better. Even though it's a nonsequitur I must add that this female otaku thinks Inuyasha's older brother, Sesshyomaru, is a real babe.
