Toes jammed. Earls… Earled.
Good morning my loyal Painkillers, and welcome to another addition of Anime Wednesday. Today we are going to be talking about, a really short, but really good series. I think that this series is really underrated, but hopefully after this, it will get the recognition that it truly deserves. So without further delay, let’s dive into Blue Submarine No. 6.

Continue reading The Final Act!
Good morning everyone, and welcome the next installment in our journey of Inuyasha. Today we will be talking about the fourth movie. If you haven’t seen the articles on the first three movies, you can go back into the archive and check them out, and let us know what you think. Well then, now with that said, let’s get into the final movie! Here is Inuyasha Movie 4: Fire On The Mystic Island.
The movie opens up on what we later found out is called Horai Island. We see six half demon children, five seem to be dealing with some kind of spell that is on them, and they are telling the other child named Ai, to flee the island. She flees, and starts to be attacked by the Four War Gods. She is saved by Inuyasha and friends. The group is surprised that Ai knows who Inuyasha is.
He explains how he knows Ai, and the legend of Horai Island. Inuyasha is drawn to the island due to the fact that when he and Kikyo visited the island fifty years ago, he was marked by the Four War Gods. In order to break the spell that is on him, and the other children on the island, they must defeat the War Gods. As they set out to Horai Island, we find out that Sesshomaru is also on his way to the island. Sometime around the death of his father, Sesshomaru had a run in with one of the War Gods, and ended up getting marked as well. Will Sesshomaru, Inuyasha, and the others be able to defeat the Four War Gods? Well, find out by watching the movie yourself.
OK, so let me start off by saying, yes, this is my favorite movie of the four. I enjoyed the story, and the action that this movie brings. This one does feel a little different from the other three movies, and the series, but they were able to pull it off, and it works. Maybe this feels different, because this movie takes place after the original series. So for those of you that are watching the series, and plugging in the movies after the espoides I told you they come in between, this movie comes right after the original 167 episode series. Once again, I found this movie on Netflix, so I’m naming them the unofficial sponsor of Inuyasha month, since they are not giving us a dime, even though I have been telling everyone that reads this that they have all four movies, and the the original series are up there. Well by the time I’m writing this anyway.
Thanks everyone for showing up each week and reading my take on all the Inuyasha movies. I hope that you all enjoyed this, and that you liked and shared these articles. Hopefully if this is successful, I can do another month like this, and hopefully things will go smoother than this month. Here, I would close out Inuyasha month, but I have a surprise for you. Come back on Tuesday, July 31st, and see what the surprise is, and to close out Inuyasha month!

Good morning Leaguers, Painkillers, Inuyasha fans, and just fans of anime in general. Thank you for supporting this, and everything that the HBCL does. So here we are in week three in Inuyasha month, and I hope that everyone has not only been enjoying what we havebeen doing, that you guys have been liking, commenting, and been sharing these articles. Anyways, you guys didn’t come here for all of that, you guys are here for more Inuyasha, since it is his month. So, let’s get into it, here Inuyasha movie 3: Swords Of An Honorable Ruler.
The movie opens up 200 years ago with Sesshomaru, and his father, The Great Dog Demon, who is badly wounded from a recent battle. They have a quick conversation before his father leaves to protect Izayoi, Inuyasha’s mother. Izayoi is about to give birth to Inuyasha, when Takemaru, a former suitor Izayoi, until he finds out that she was impregnated by a demon, kills her. Inuyasha’s father battles his way inside of the home, as Takemaru orders his men to set the palace on fire. The Dog Demon used Tenseiga to resurrect Izayoi. Takemaru enters to kill the Dog Demon, Izayoi, and their new born half demon baby, Inuyasha. The Dog Demon, took on Takemaru, which allow Izayoi to escape with Inuyasha. Unfortunately, the Dog Demon along with Takemaru die in the fire.
Back in Kagome’s time, while Inuyasha is saving her from a “wicked” volleyball, her family is in a storage room examining an old sword. It turns out to be an evil sword named So’unga, once was one of the three swords once owned by the Great Dog Demon. So’unga breaks a spell that was placed on it by the spirit of it’s own sheath, Saya, and So’unga frees himself and finds the strongest demon he can find to attach himself to, which happens to be Inuyasha. Once attached, he drags Inuyasha back to the feudal time, where they encounter Sesshomaru. During the fight, So’unga finds out about Sesshomaru’s cut off arm, and thanks to Sesshomaru and Kagome, So’unga detaches himself. He goes off and finds Sesshomaru’s arm, and awakens Takemaru, so together, Takemaru could take out the sons of the Dog Demon for revenge.
Meanwhile, Sesshomaru sets off to hunt down So’unga, to stop him, leaving Rin and Jaken behind. Inuyasha also goes off on his own, to do the same as Sesshomaru.Myogo tells everyone the story behind the three swords of the Great Dog Demon, and how Myogo and Totosai where told to give the Tenseiga to Sesshomaru, and the Tessaiga to Inuyasha. They also learned that the only way to stop So’unga, is for Inuyasha and Sesshomaru to work together, and use the combined powers of the Tessaiga, and Tenseiga. Well, fans of the show know by reading that last sentence, they already know that the world is screwed.
This movie was great, and if you guys read the articles on the first two movies I’m not going to say that line, but you already know. Sesshomaru is my favorite character from the show, and I was glad to see him in one of these movies. Now here is the question that I’m sure you are all wondering. Did I like this movie, more than the second one? Of course I did! Sesshomaru was in it! Need I say more. Once again this movie can be found on Netflix, and those following along with the series, this movie falls in between espoides 136 and 137. Make sure that you guys come back next week, and we will dive into the final movie. Until next time!

Good morning new and old Painkillers, and welcome to the next chapter in Inuyasha month. I hoped that everyone enjoyed my review of the first movie, and actually went out and checked it out for themselves. Now it’s time to go further down the rabbit hole, and let’s talk about the second movie, The Castle Beyond The Looking Glass.
The movie opens up with the gang in the middle of the battle with their sworn enemy, Naraku. Unfortunately, Inuyasha has to sit out this fight, due to it being the night of the new moon, and him turning human during this time. Luckily, the sun rises, and Inuyasha is back to being a half demon. With his help, they kill Naraku. After the battle, Miroku realises that the curse that was set apond his family is finally broken, as his wind tunnel is gone. With the death of Naraku, Miroku and Sango separate from Inuyasha, Shippo and Kagome, as they take time for themselves, and to figure out what to do next.
Not feeling fully free from the grip of Naraku, Kagura and Kanna, incounters The Princess of the Heavens, Kaguya. She is currently trapped inside of a mirror. In return for freeing her from the mirror, Kaguya offers Kagura and Kenna true freedom from Naraku. They go off to collect five items, and putting them in certain locations to break the seal, freeing Kaguya from the mirror. Once free, she incounters Inuyasha and Kagome, and this is where I tell you if you want to find out what happens next, that you go watch the damn movie for yourself.
Once again, this movie is really good, and again feels like it is just an extended espisode. Speaking of espisodes, this movie supposedly takes place between episodes 95 and 96. If you are a hardcore fan, and plan on watching the entire series again, now you know when to watch this movie. Just like the first movie, I was able to find this on Netflix, so that makes it easier for everyone to watch. I really did enjoy watching this movie again, and I damn near forgot about the twist near the end. This is only the second movie, and I do like this one better than the first movie. I wonder going into the third movie, will I like that one better than this one? Well, there is only one way to find out. Come back next week, as we dive into the next movie. Until next time.
