Next week brings things to a close in a sense for one of the longer running properties that Viz Media has been involved in with the complete collection release of Inuyasha: The Final Act. The show is coming out on May 26th, 2015 in both DVD and Blu-ray editions that bring together the half season sets that we had before. The show is priced at $44.82 for the DVD and $54.97 for the Blu-ray release. Both discs are the same in terms of show content, but the Blu-ray has bonus features including production and storyboard art galleries and the original Japanese broadcast trailers while the DVD just has the broadcast trailers.
“INUYASHA: THE FINAL ACT delivers the grand finale of Inuyasha and Kagome’s quest to restore the shattered Shikon Jewel,” says Charlene Ingram, Senior Marketing Manager, Animation. “Longtime fans can complete their INUYASHA personal anime complete with the release of THE FINAL ACT on DVD and Blu-ray and witness the epic showdown with the evil demon, Naraku, and discover the long-awaited answer to the ultimate question of Kagome and Inuyasha’s future together!”
Plot concept: In the thrilling conclusion to this famed anime series, Kagome is an ordinary schoolgirl who finds her destiny linked to a hotheaded but brave half demon named 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. Kagome finds herself pulled between two worlds as she struggles to fight alongside Inuyasha in the feudal era and study for her high school entrance exams in the present. As the battle enters its final stage, Inuyasha and his friends have their strength, loyalties and will to live pushed to the limit. The final key to Naraku’s and the Jewel’s destruction may lie in nothing more – and nothing less – than the trust between a half demon and a girl from the future. All roads have led here, to one last battle and one final act!
