Synopsis

Following Inu no Taishou's death, his swords Tenseiga and Tessaiga were passed on to his sons, Sesshoumaru and Inuyasha respectively. However, there exists one more blade. During a visit to his friend Kagome Higurashi in modern times, Inuyasha encounters Sounga—his father's third sword. Found by one of Kagome's ancestors inside the old well that connects the past to the future, Sounga has been kept for years as a treasured artifact at the Higurashi shrine. Nevertheless, it soon reveals itself to harbor an evil spirit with a terrible urge to kill.

While struggling to subdue its calamitous nature, Inuyasha manages to bring Sounga back to the feudal era where he must confront his brother Sesshoumaru, who has always desired to possess it. But when they lose track of the sword during their fight, the siblings engage in a fervent competition to find it, still unaware of its secret and the legacy that Inu no Taishou has left for them.

This movie, is indeed my favorite of all the Inuyasha films.

First of all, the artwork looks really pretty, and the plot of the story is very enjoyable. This movie basically gives you a little flashback into Inuyasha's past, and who his parents were. Like any Inuyasha movie, there's plenty of action to see.

In my opinion, the movie could have went a little bit deeper into the past, but overall it's great!

Out of the four Inuyasha film installments, this is probably the best in terms of plot. We get to see a little more about Inuyasha and Sesshomaru's father, the dog demon.

The film focuses mainly around Inuyasha, Sesshomaru and the third sword along with the story behind it. I won't be going into details about the plot since it'll give away spoilers. Also, best part about the film, we get to see ...
