Is Inuyasha worth watching in 2017 or is it too dated/cliche nowadays?
I never watched it when it was airing on TV and wonder if I should or just find something else...

69-71
73-74
(75-77 weren't too bad IMO)
79-82
83-86
88
102-126
131-132
(137-140 weren't bad either)
141-146
(147-148 are an hour special pre dating the show, not bad and has the best ending theme sequence in the anime)
149-160
164-167
Lastly the Final Act 1-26

In total it gets cut from 193 episodes to ~160. Not a bad anime but it is drawn out at times. It's no worse than Sailor Moon and I'm chewing through that right now.
>>
>>151738158
The show is honestly historical for almost all the wrong reasons with a few of them being right (SANGO). If you've been watching a lot of anime but never caught it on Toonami/never grabbed a torrent, watch it to have some frame of reference for what sets people off - mainly obtuse amounts of filler, shitty plot resets, and nerfing powers for the sake of dragging shit out.

There are 4 movies that have (I think?) zero relevance to the plot, too.
>>
>>151739777
Movie 3 best movie

I watched this show when I was 12 so I really got into it and the characters but it was objectively terrible. /a/ used to skewer people for liking it and it was entirely justified.

The EDs are still legendary though:

InuYasha: TFA was just beautiful. No filler, just straight up plot with a resounding conclusion that was better than the manga. If they ended the anime at its apex, it would have been regarded as one of the best anime ever made. However, as all popular things go, it was dragged into the ground.

Rumiko Takahashi has some of my favourite monster designs in manga next to Go Nagai.

Stick to the manga as said. I read it right now, very fun even with all the fillers.
Seven band arc was amazing but too bad she didn't finished the series there, could have been an amazing end.

Other than that, there are few annoying bad stuff, but if you like the characters it's fun as hell.

There might be episodes that aren't essentials, but still better than the rest. In general for long running series - to my experience - the first 50-60 episodes are a must if you want to know what the hell is going on.

Alot of fags acknowledge that Inuyasha was pretty bad looking back, but its hard to really hate because for a lot of people in the 18-24 range it was their first anime that wasn't Pokemon or Hamtaro so they have fond memories of it. In the end though, it's essentially a poor man's Escaflowne but instead of mechs you have demons

That's every rumiko work ever. there is zero character development for anyone. I like all the anime she's had adapted but it can be tiring to marathon it. It's best when you watch an episode every day or two inbetween watching other stuff I find. Also usually her original mangas are much shorter so they aren't too bad to burn through fast.
>>
>>151743859
Hey look, an useful post! Oh wait...
>>
Will Takahashi write anything decent again? Last I checked her latest manga was tanking.

I mean Inuyasha isn't nearly as bad as it's reputation it garnered due to the fans.

I know her art is sameface-y, but I don't mind seeing it every now and then.

>>151738957

Yes despite the filler the series is worth watching. The characters are great and villains are rich. The entire series is bathed in Japanese folklore.

If you have a short attention span you might just want to skip the entire thing except for Band of seven and the Inuyasha vs Sessh fights.

Rinne is great and already got 50 episodes with 25 more next Spring/Summer. Possibly more since it gets around 3.0 ratings which is a lot.

I didn't care for it, I recommend to read Sengoku Youko instead.

Also, read Ranma 1/2 if you haven't. In my opinion that's her strongest work, while Inuyasha is the weakest.

oh and Rinne is pretty decent, can only speak for the anime though.

It is kinda strange, because it feels so oldschool. It feels like you're watching a 90s anime.
And it helps that the main chick isn't a copy of Akane or Kagome (i.e. bitchy tsundere, hammer over the head for looking at my boobs type) but is rather subdued and down to earth.
And the character trait of a constantly broke Shinigami that has to beg for money for his special mega shonen attacks is pretty funny.

Now, I just want to watch it again. Cite each Kikyo episode and make a playlist.
Yes, I was happy everytime it was a Kikyo episode and Kagome getting ass blasted while Inuyasha and Kikyo is in a distance.
I like melodrama. I'm so sorry.

No for the most part they are all canon. First three seasons cover volumes 1-23 of the manga. Season 4 is the shitshow of filler, with some of 5 and most of 6.

I used to have Ranma, Pokemon, Digimon and Inuyasha in German on my computer. I even bought the limited edition box of Cowboy Bebop in German. It's glorious.

It's too bad you say that anime isn't popular anymore. The german Opening and ending themesongs were damn amazing. I had them on my mp3 player when I was in HS

Early episodes were good plot wise, but all the episodes that were made before the animation change are comfy (even in their repetition).
Band of seven is also good plot wise, but after that the story sort of wanes until its conclusion. Still watchable though.

I used to think I liked them merely out of nostalgia, and while that's certainly not a negligible factor coming back to them it is apparent some of them are really well-edited with smart music choices.

The rest might be a dull slog fit only for nerdy girls under 20, but the EDs really are pretty good.

Rumiko was a herald to a lot of derailing nonsense.

At least it ended, unlike Ranma.

Should've read the manga, it has proper pacing. The Final Act was a 26-episode anime that had to adapt 21 manga volumes. I think they did a fine job of it, although obviously the base concept was utterly fucked and really needed at least 52 episodes instead.

25 years old female here. Inuyasha was the Twilight of my generation, when I was 13 years old and internet was still too expensive to download things besides AMVs and bad quality .rmvbs (I remember fondly one with Inuyasha and Kagome with Sixpence None The Richer - Kiss Me playing). It was nice while it lasted, but I wouldn't rewatch it if I had the chance. Read other Rumiko's works, they're better.
