Trivia

While So'unga possessed Inuyasha, he attempted to slay Jaken and Rin. Kagome arrived and gave two sit commands; embracing Inuyasha before giving the second. Once So'unga let go of Inuyasha, the enchantment of the subjugation beads was unleashed and Inuyasha was brought down with Kagome underneath him. This is the only time that Kagome ever feels the effect of her own "sit" commands. See more »

Goofs

When the beads shoot off of Inuyasha, Jaken originally gets hit in the chin with one. In the next shot, Jaken lays on the ground with the bead on his forehead instead. See more »

Quotes

Sesshomaru: Father, do you insist on going?
Inuyasha's Father: Do you intend to stop me, Sesshomaru?
Sesshomaru: I will not stand in your way. However, before you go, you must entrust the swords Sounga and Tetsuseiga to ME.
Inuyasha's Father: And if I refuse, will you kill me, your own father?
[Sesshomaru is silent]
Inuyasha's Father: Do you desire power so much? Why do you seek power, my son?
Sesshomaru: The path I walk is the way of supreme conquest, and it is power that will reveal the way for me.
Inuyasha's Father: Supreme conquest... tell me, Sesshomaru, have you someone to protect?
Sesshomaru: Protect?

Crazy Credits

After the credits, Kagome replaces the beads of subjugation on Inuyasha, much to his chagrin. He demands that she take them off but she merely gives him a gentle 'SIT', which is still heard throughout. See more »

Hit and Miss... but mostly Hit
29 September 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This had to be the best of any Inuyasha movie released in English thus far. Even if you haven't been a geek sworn in to the series, you'll understand the basic storyline, very much unlike the previous two.

This is not for the lovebirds in the audience, it's more for the series' main genre, the action (battle of the brothers to be precise). The movie's OC villain, Takemaru, was surprisingly deep and had an exceptional storyline laced with Izayoi, Inuyasha's mother. The father of Inuyasha and Sesshomaru, however, was probably the highlight of this feature, he himself was worth seeing the entire movie for.

However, there were one or two things that troubled me about this story. There were many out-of-character moments that just irked me, but that's to be expected by the people who write the movies, and are not too familiar with the original manga.

Though, I'm happy to say that this movie's animation is much more consistent and mirrors both the manga and anime stylings very well. The music is amazing, I was happy to see some of the old stuff from the first season mixed in there. "Four Seasons" at the end was also a very nice treat.

All and all, I would say that this is one that needs to be seen by any fan, avid or not.
