Inuyasha movies [discussion]

According to AnimeOnDVD.com, the first two IY movies are finally going to be released over here. The first one will be out this summer, and the second later in the year. I'm glad to hear this, since I haven't seen the first one and I'd like to be able to own them both.

Are they any good? I though the series was rather weak, but these popular action shows often have entertaining movies.

No. The movies aren't really very good, though the second is better than the first.

Still, if you haven't seen much of the series than you might like the first movie better than I did. I thought it reused too many of the situations from the TV episodes. That made it seem rather redundant.

I've seen every episode up to 146 and thought the second movie was pretty good. I'll most likely see the first movie even if it isn't that great for a sense of completion. (hmm, that may sound rather stupid ) Here's hoping they bring the third movie out here early next year, since it's being released on DVD in Japan this summer.

Yeah... the promos I've seen for the 3rd movie look really interesting. I'm hoping this one will finally be the great Inuyasha movie I keep hoping for.

the first inuyasha movie reminded me of a lot of anime movies (DBZ movies for instance) that took place apart from the actual plot (which makes sense...but it's odd...American cartoons don't do that...shows like "Rugrats" do plot point changes based on the movie O_O)

I haven't seen all the inu yasha movies, but I believe they're self contained. The ones I saw were at least. You should be able to watch them without having to reference specific episodes. Most anime movies are filler and don't continue the main story from the series. There are some exceptions to that though, like the fma movie.

^I've seen 3 of the 4 movies and IMO they have nothing to do with the series timeline...You should watch the movies as they are...Considering the series never changes from the main story of them searching for Naraku and getting the Shikan Jewel I think you should watch the movies without any regard for the series (unless you haven't seen atleast a decent portion of the series...I mean if you hardley know anything about the anime then I'd advise against it)...In anime as a whole the OVA's alot of times really don't have much to do with or hardley ever invalidates the series...

Hopes that helps...

ah i see......

From what i thought it would be was more like the CCS movies where the first fell in after the first season and the second was an ending to the entire series.

i have only watched episodes 1-51 strait through ad im much further along on tv and a movie. i saw a few eps and the movie on tv and had no clue what was going on so i started to dl it but its very hard to get earlier episodes so i havent progressed very far in that sense.

Spoiler:


So when does he die? The series or in a movie? i need to know! i dont care about spoiling it, i expect him to die anyways and if he doesn't, that's just stupid!

^Don't know...I'm currently watching the [adult swim] eps...I've had plenty of oppurtunities to finish the series, but since I started watching it 4 years ago I'm a bit brainwashed by the english dub...At some point I suspect they will get Naraku...Just know that the movies don't really spoil anything...I mean Inuyasha is great in all, but it ain't a very complex series...It's a character-based series...with really just one goal...

The movies are different in the fact that they take place in different times of the storyline.

For example, Movie 4 takes place at the very end of the series because Inuyasha has his Diamond Tetsusaiga which he doesn't acquire until around episode 150-something.

Well, it seems you're going to be mad.

They had to end it in the middle because the anime was catching up to the manga (which is still ongoing).

I don't know if they'll make more episodes after the manga ends or more movies though.
