    Genre: Action, Fantasy, Drama Length: 13 episodes "Kagome is an ordinary schoolgirl who finds her destiny linked to the half demon Inuyasha and the powerful Shikon Jewel. In their quest to restore the shattered Shikon Jewel, Inuyasha and Kagome face their ultimate enemy, the demon mastermind Naraku. Meanwhile, Sesshomaru learns the truth behind his sword Tenseiga, and Kikyo discovers a secret that could defeat Naraku! With the jewel nearly complete and in enemy hands, the race to collect the remaining shards intensifies, and an epic battle is brewing on the horizon!" Can't believe it took me so long to finally watch this one. Bought it nearly a year ago on its release date! For those that aren't familiar, InuYasha was an incredibly popular anime series that was shown on Cartoon Network's Toonami block late at night some 6-10 years ago. Still have a couple of the figures as well as the imported DVDs of the different movies from back then, too. However, the series was never finished. Rumiko Takahashi, its creator, needed a break from the series and so left it unfinished after several seasons and 167 episodes. After 5 years on hiatus, the series started back up and concluded it with this volume and volume 2 of InuYasha: The Final Act. From the get-go, you can tell that the series is no longer dragging things out and continuing to build characters or relationships. Several of the characters that you may have loved or hated start biting the dust in these first 13 episodes. Even though I hadn't seen any of the episodes in years, I still found the deaths to be pretty emotionally powerful. They did it very well! And if you hadn't figured out from the original 167 episodes, Naraku is one cruel dude. Definitely no love left for him after this! Some of the episodes did feel like filler, but none of them were. Each one was designed to emphasize the emotional impact of something that had just happened or was about to happen. I honestly expected to watch this over 2-4 nights, but I loved it so much that I watched all 13 episodes back to back! Don't bother with the special features, though. In typical Viz fashion, they're exceedingly lacking. If you've seen ANY of the original series and enjoyed it, then you owe it to yourself to catch all of the Final Act. Can't speak for the last 13 episodes, but this volume is certainly pushing the end here fast. Won't be enough characters left alive to last for much longer!

    A Great Summary of the Series + New Techniques

    "Inuyasha The Final Act" Set 1 appears to be a good way to summarize what happened in the earlier seasons. It is also good for those who want some entertainment and knowledge of Inuyasha without having to spend a crazy amount of money on the entire Inuyasha series. Some familiar songs from the series and movies are in this set. For those who like to hear different music from a season that took a while to come out, this could bore such people. The crew that put this together in Japan really should have inserted new songs with the season. As set one comes to a close, you start to see exactly what Inuyasha and Kagome must do to defeat Naraku, who the main antagonist of the series. Naraku does not die in this set, but he was very close to being defeated. I believe the final showdown is shown in set 2, I believe so far that the final act is a great way to end this series. In my opinion for release dates, the final act should have came out sooner. The release would not have to summarize as much if they did release sooner, and there would be less potential spoilers. But on the flip side, you get an idea what happened in the previous seasons. Maybe you might want to buy the other seasons to see the history of Inuyasha, from when he initially gets the Tessaiga and learns over time how to use its techniques.
