InuYasha Complete Box Set

InuYasha Complete Box Set

The InuYasha Complete Box Set is great for fans of English dubbed Japanese anime. This movie series is difficult to find  in English. This DVD set has English and Japanese audio. It gives you the ability to turn off the subtitles, a feature that I really like. The movies in the InuYasha Complete Box set are fun. They are similar to long filler episodes.  I found they had interesting villains and I really enjoyed the story lines. The purpose of the set is not to assist the Naraku storyline progress. It is a fun twist for people like me that have already watched all of the InuYasha episode on television. The InuYasha Complete Box set features my favorite anime Japanese school girl and dog demon. Make no mistake, this anime dvd set is different from the InuYasha television  series. The characters have a little bit of a cuter look to them. A major plus is that the battle scenes and battle sequences are animated better in this series than they are in the InuYasha television animation. All in all when you consider that each movie in the series costs about $15.00 individually, $25.00 for the InuYasha complete box set is a great deal.
