Due to the long running nature of this show, there WILL be some spoilers in this review and the reviews to follow related to subsequent seasons. Read at your own risk, you have been warned.
So here we are gang, after season 3, we're halfway to the end. For those of you just tuning in, it is recommended that if you haven't seen seasons one or two you may want to backtrack a little bit and start with them. The links to those reviews are attached to their corresponding season mentioned in the previous sentence. Or if you want to see them at the same time you can go below and click on the label in the review list marked "Inuyasha." As before, Inuyasha is produced by Sunrise based on the manga by Rumiko Takahashi, and is licensed by Viz Media in the U.S. Naraku's starting to get a little frisky, so ready your weapons and prepare for battle.
|I'll grant that you're trying Shippo, but we know this is filler|
and nobody's going to care!
|Yeah, this guy keeps jewel shards in his navel. I'd hate to |
think of the belly-button lint that collects in there. ><;
|Naraku must really like having Inuyasha getting shot at |
by his would-be girl-friends, seeing as he tries to make it
happen so often.
|At some point, you gotta wonder if he's got some|
spare heirloom fire-rat robes lying around somewhere.
He ruins his clothes so much with all this getting skewered
and getting beaten up and stuff he'd almost have to.
|Why is it that everything prior to this series happened 50 years ago? |
Sure some of these things are time sensitive, but not all of it
has to be directly connected to the point where Inuyasha
got bound to the tree.
|To be fair, Richard Ian Cox does a convincing job, but if |
you're watching the Japanese dub, Kappei Yamaguchi
sounds sooo creepy when he tries to act like a woman! ><;
I still don't have much left to say in terms of style, but on the bright side, we're half finished now, so I'm that much closer to coming out with an overall opinion. We do get a new opening and ending theme song partway through the show. "Owarinai Yume" by Nanase Aikawa isn't a bad theme, and we also get "Every Heart" by BoA (Beat of Angel) which I really like. There haven't been any major new additions to the cast in terms of voice actors, so there's really not that much to add. Both the English and Japanese voice overs are still doing their job although the show is still plagued by narm on occasion and the English dub does have a couple of places where the voice actors just sound like their reading their lines or are being melodramatic, which is a little annoying. At least we're still moving, if not quite as fast as I would like, so I guess the thing to do is sign off until next time. Hope you join us next month when we look at season 4!
