Swords Of The Three Kingdoms

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!

Not The Mirror On The Wall!

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.

PSA For July

Attention all Leaguers and Painkillers! I just wanted to give you guys a heads up about what I’m doing for the month of July. There won’t be a Saturday Morning Cinema post or any Grab A Buddy Monday posts for the month. Why you ask? Well I’m trying to do something a bit different. So for right now, I’m going to explain to what my original plan was, and what it turned into, so sit back and enjoy.

As many of you know I have been writing about co-op video games, and short anime series. As of a few months ago, I started doing anime movies as well. I am always looking to expand if I can, and am always trying to improve on my writing. One of the things that I want to do is to talk about long anime series. The issue became how to go about it. So after going about it in my head for a while, the idea of Saturday Morning Cinema was born. For those that don’t know what that is, the first Saturday of each month, I talk about an anime movie that I enjoyed, and I would want to talk about, and share with you guys, in hopes that you guys go out and watch it for yourself.

So a while back, I went back to the idea of how to go about taking about a long anime series. It dawned on me that the best way to go about it, would be to talk about any movies and video games that they have. So now it became which series to start off with. The most obvious one was DragonBall Z, but since they have so many games and movies out there, which ones do I pick. So I narrowed it down to a series that didn’t have so many movies and games. I figured that the best series to do this with would be Inuyasha.

So now the original plan to do this was to write about the movies and games within a month. The movies would take up my Saturday Morning Cinema, and Anime Wednesday post, and the games would take care of my Grab A Buddy Monday posts. I just recently rewatched all four movies, and have already started working those articles. When it came down to the games unfortunately, I went back to check them out, since I owned the ps2 games, they are fucking bad. Just awful. The online games that were on the Cartoon Network/Adult Swim website back in the day were better than these games, and the online games were free to play. So in the end I decided to scrap the games, since I didn’t want my articles to look like an AVGN script.

So July will be Inuyasha month. So starting on the 4th of July my article on the first movie will drop. So hopefully, well in the States anyway, when you are out grilling, setting off firecrackers, and before you go see your local fireworks display, read the article, and find the first movie,and check it out. Here is the schedule :

July 4th- Affections Touching Across Time

July 11th- The Castle Beyond The Looking Glass

July 18th- Swords Of An Honorable Ruler

July 25th- Fire On The Mystic Island

Hopefully this all goes well, and I hope that you all enjoy. Until next time everyone.
