Why can't any of these services get more than the first 54 episodes? I want to watch it but I'm not gonna watch 1/3rd of a series then quit.

Maybe I'm mis-reading something, but the article says "All episodes are streaming on Hulu," - unless by services you mean Funy, Crunchy, and other anime centric outfits. I mean, I don't get Hulu or HBO Max myself, either.


Besides that, for my two bits, the plot in the rest of the 100-plus other eps spoiler[doesn't advance a whole lot]. The show was kind of too popular for it's own good, if that makes sense. Your mileage will very, but I watched the whole thing back in the 00's, and I was not impressed. I was taping all of Adult Swim every week for lack of anything else to watch, and when I got bored enough, I'd eventually watch the Inyu ep. Otherwise I would not ever have seen it.

One of the movies was a bit better, as best as I can remember. I wouldn't mind seeing that again.

I am not sure if you are aware, as many people surprisingly aren't, that the original show had a sequel called Inuyasha: The Final Act, which spoiler[finished the story-line that the original series didn't get to. So while the original series might have dragged the plot around aimlessly, the sequel is a rush (sometimes too rushed) of development. Maybe you knew that already and I didn't understand your post fully.][/spoiler]

Inuyasha is probably one of my favorite anime series. But, seeing as how I own it all on Bluray... this doesn't particularly interest me :3

Will this stream use the new Viz BD masters that have the correct theme songs on them or will it have the instrumental music like all the other streaming platforms that have Inuyasha do?

^anime-prime: thanks, but yes, I've seen that. It did improve things by providing an ending, which was good for my two bits.

It is too bad that Funy doesn't have that yet. I hope they get it, that would help.

Maybe I was too down on the show. I did like it quite a bit at first, but after the first three seasons, I kinda lost interest.

Good. It needs more exposure, especially with a sequel forthcoming.

More exposure for whom?

Considering how frequently the original series used to air on TV.

That was over a decade and a half ago that Inuyasha was last aired on Adult Swim. There's a whole generation of newer younger anime fans that have never seen Inuyasha or probably have never heard of Rumiko Takahashi.

First Hunter x Hunter (2011), then Naruto and now Inuyasha.

I think this is a sign that Viz Media is slowly moving away from licensing Anime.

Actually, it aired for almost 12 years, ending its run in 2015. The last few years it aired extremely late on night, but it’s only been around five years since it stopped airing.

Why would making their shows available on more platforms equate moving away from licensing anime?

With Yashahime confirmed to be on Funimation, I guess the original series of Inuyasha should be a part of it too. Anyways, I wonder if it will be more than 54 episodes since the last time I saw it on Netflix, it was only that much episodes available and plus, the strange issue with the first opening not being intact for strange reasons like rights issues. So can we have all of the episodes with all of the openings and endings intact, please? Appreciate it.

It has the instrumental opening and closing like on Crunchyroll, Netflix and Hulu, unfortunately

^No surprise considering it's Johnny's, we're lucky to have the song on the new Blu-ray sets considering it's missing from both German & Spanish Blu-ray releases.
