Viz Communications has the North American Licensing rights for all of Rumiko Takahashi's Manga and Videos except Ursei Yatsura (Which is distributed by AnimEigo), including the Inu Yasha Manga, so it is a reasonable assumption that Viz will pick up the rights to the Inu Yasha TV series sometime next year.
