With InuYasha and her new friends that they meet along the way, Kagome's search for the Jewel of Four Souls begins...

2.0 out of 5 stars Defected product. Beware. 20 July 2007
Well yes, Inuyasha is wonderful, but I'm not sure about this particular DVD.

I've bought it 3 times now and have had to send it back each time due to DVD defect. On the second disc, none of the dialogue or sound matches up with the images. Therefore, you get character's mouths moving 3 seconds after speech is heard, you hear Sesshoumaru's whip crack 3 seconds before he actually cracks his whip. It's just awful to watch and continues through all the episodes 7-12.

So yes, for all the wonders of the story and characters and enjoyment this anime series brings, read another review on this page. But of this actual product? I'd be wary.

You *may* get a DVD set that's fine, but I don't think "3 products, same defect, same disc," is just a coinsidence. I think it's a product defect that is so with many other of these DVDs.

I was really disappointed too, after waiting so long for Inuyasha to come to the UK, but now I don't want to try and get this product again, because it's wasted enough of my time already. I'll just get the US versions and hope they work.

Sound out of sync on disc 2 by a significant amount, unwatchable. Known defect. Find an alternative way of watching this series until they make an improved release

3.0 out of 5 stars Good quality 6 July 2007
This is an excellent quality DVD - the image quality is good, as is the sound, to the point where you can hear even the minor sounds that make a scene really worth watch (such as the soft chink of glass falling to the ground, or the twang of a vibrating bowstring) and the show is, of course, a great anime production - full of action, adventure, romance, comedy, tragedy and a solid, consistant plot.

Usually, I prefer the Japanese version and watch such shows with English subtitles, but for some reason, I feel that in InuYasha, the English dub works best. They've chosen some good English-language voice actors for the parts - some of whom I do prefer to the original Japanese voice-actors, which is very unusual.

One complaint, however. The subtitle and language option menu is very simplistic and doesn't seem to work correctly.There are two language options (Japanese and English). If you select Japanese, the subtitles "on" option is automatically selected as well, and if you select English, the subtitles "off" option is automatically selected at the same time. I've found no way of using the two menues independently of each other. Worse still, even though the subtitles of the English version claim to be "off" - the English subtitles still show up throughout each episode. I appreciate the English subtitles on the Japanese version, but I'd love for them to disappear on the English version - so far, I can't find a way of doing that. The Subtitle menu doesn't seem to turn them off, even when it claims it has.

Overall, I rate the Inuyasha show highly, and the DVD provides very good quality watching - the menu makers have let the DVD down however - the lack of subtitle control is annoying.

5.0 out of 5 stars Action Packed Anime At Its Best! 20 April 2007
At Last InuYasha is available to buy here on DVD ! Better late than never i guess..

The story is about a girl named kagome who slips down a well and through time and ends up on the hunt for the sacred jewel with her friend InuYasha. Kagome, Inuyasha, Miroku, Sango, Kirara and Shippo now must defeat their most hated enemy, Naraku! Like DragonBall Z, the humor of Inuyasha is balanced with its stunning action sequences, but what ultimately makes InuYasha so, very, very, watchable are the great characters and strong storyline that include the elements all of the great Anime themes of Fantasy, Love, Comedy, Tragedy, and Friendship !

For the last couple of years Inuyasha has been one of the top-rated anime series on Japanese TV. Cartoon Network in America has aired all the episodes of the series, because of the great and continuing popularity it has also achieved a huge fan community on the internet and I'm most definately one - watch it ! You won't be disappointed !

I recommend it wholeheartedly !
