Trivia

The sword So'unga, (which can translate to, "Amassing Cloud Fang") was not created by Totosai, nor was it forged from one of Inutaisho's fangs. The initial origin of the sword remains shrouded in mystery. What is known is that the sword is possessed by the spirit of an ancient demon dragon from hell. How Inuyasha's father came to acquire the sword is also unknown, but it is possible (if not likely) that he was selected to wield the sword as a means of controlling So'unga (like Sesshomaru controls the spirit of the Tokijin).

A Surprisingly Good Film
16 April 2005 | by janqbSee 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.
