The new Inu Yashu movie, entitled "Inuyasha: Toki o Koeru Omoi", or "Inuyasha - Love which transcends time" is slated to premiere in Japanese theatres this December.

Inu Yashu is based on a Manga series by Rumiko Takahashi (Urusei Yatsura, Ranma 1/2, Maison Ikkoku) and has already been converted into a three season Anime TV series. Both the Manga and the TV series have been licenced for distribution in North America by Viz, the Manga has been available for quite soem time but no release has yet to be announced for the Anime.

The movie marks Toshiya Shinohara's first time directing a theatrical Anime. He has previously directed the 1998 Lupin III TV sepecial, "Memory of Blaze - Tokyo Crisis", and 1990's Wizardry.

The apparition named Menoumaru shows up in front of Inuyasha who looks for Shikon no tama. The purpose of Menoumaru was Tessaiga though other apparitions were aiming at Shikon no tama of Kagome. Why does Menoumaru seek for Tessaiga?
Time goes back for 300 years further. Chief of apparitions who had attacked Japan from the continent were fathers of Menoumaru. Apparitions were repulsed by Inuyasha's father at that time, and Menoumaru was sealed. But, that seal was canceled after 300 years, and Menoumaru was revived. And, he tries to deprive Inuyasha of Tessaiga somehow. Why?

This is an original story that is not based on one of the stories in the Manga.
