Press Release from VIZ Media
VIZ Media invites fans to catch the last episode of INUYASHA THE FINAL ACT scheduled to air on VIZAnime.com today! The finale to the long-running animated adventure saga will be broadcast on the new video-streaming site shortly after it airs in Japan. Find out in the exciting conclusion to one of the greatest anime series of all time in the installment titled "Toward Tomorrow"!
INUYASHA THE FINAL ACT is based on a massively popular manga (also published by VIZ Media, rated 'T+' for Older Teens) by famed creator Rumiko Takahashi, who won the prestigious Shogakukan Manga Award for the series in 2002. Many of Takahashi's titles have been adapted into other media such as anime, live-action TV series, and film. The INUYASHA anime series has run for 193 episodes in total and has also spawned several feature films.
Pulled back in time to Japan's ancient past, Japanese high school girl Kagome finds her destiny linked to a dog-like half-demon named Inuyasha, who remembers Kagome's previous incarnation as the woman who killed him - and to the Shikon Jewel, or "Jewel of Four Souls," which can fulfill the greatest dreams of any man or monster. Now Kagome and Inuyasha must work together to search for the scattered shards of the jewel before everyone's nightmares are given the power they need to come true.
Takahashi's manga, as well as the other formats her work has been adapted into, have continued to delight generations of fans around the world. Distinguished by her wonderfully endearing characters, Takahashi's work adeptly incorporates a wide variety of elements such as comedy, romance, fantasy, and martial arts. Rumiko Takahashi is an artist who truly represents the very best from the world of manga.
