Inuyasha The Movie The Complete Collection (BD)
In a mystical version of feudal-era Japan, modern-day schoolgirl Kagome and half-demon Inuyasha are drawn together across time to protect a land ravaged by demons! In these four feature films, our heroes take on new challenges and strange foes. With their crew of demon-slaying friends, Kagome and Inuyasha face the adventures of their lives!]]>
The four Inu-Yasha theatrical features pit the cast of Rumiko Takahashi's "feudal fairy tale" against new foes: The search for the shards of the Shikon Jewel falls by the wayside as Kagome, Inu-Yasha, Shippo, Miroku, and Sango tackle these supernatural enemies. In Affections Touching Across Time (2001), the moth-demon Menomaru seeks to reclaim the powers of his father, who was defeated by Inu-Yasha's father during the attempted Mongol invasion of 1274. The Castle Beyond the Looking Glass (2002) evokes the Japanese legend "The Tale of the Bamboo-Cutter," when Kaguya appears, claiming to be the legendary Moon Princess. Swords of an Honorable Ruler (2003) reveals that Inu-Yasha's father, the Great Dog Demon, possessed not two but three swords: Tetsusaiga, Tenseiga, and Sounga, which are linked to Earth, Heaven, and Hell, respectively. When the Sounga is accidentally freed, its aura raises the soul of Takemaru, the samurai who murdered Inu-Yasha's mother. The villains in Fire on Mystic Island (2004) are the Four War Gods, powerful demons on the island of Houraijima, who preserve and augment their power by sacrificing half-demon children. The later films are darker and more violent, although the directors balance the mayhem against familiar comedic elements, especially Kagome and Inu-Yasha squabbling. The features all reflect larger budgets than the television series, as the filmmakers employ a variety of CG effects: explosions, lightning bolts, insects, monsters, and strangling tree roots. Affections Touching Across Time stands out as the handsomest of the films, with designs that suggest the woodblock prints of Kawase Hasui. The set includes CD's of the movie soundtracks and a booklet on the traditional Japanese instruments they feature, although more information on composer Kaoru Wada would have been nice. A must-have for Inu-Yasha fans. (Rated Teen: suitable for ages 13 and older: violence, grotesque imagery, brief nudity, alcohol use, risqué humor) --Charles Solomon

In my opinion, these are well worth the money. The animation and effects are great, the stories are solid, and the characters are lovable as always.
It is mentioned in the comments that the 1080i quality is not true Blu-ray quality and also something about the picture quality to be poor.
I've watched all 4 movies already, actually finished the entire Inuyasha series as I've just today finished watching the last episode of the Final Act.
Anyway, the quality is good. It is definitely not bad in any way whatsoever, and I absolutely enjoyed watching the movies in 1080i Blu-ray quality and equally grateful that it's even made available in this Blu-ray quality.
If you don't have this, get it. Without this, your experience watching Inuyasha will just be incomplete.
The purchase price was reasonable; the video quality was acceptable.
However, the sound quality was deplorable.
The English voice actors seemed to speak in whispers; even at 3/4 volume, they were practically undecipherable. I was forced to rely upon the captions. Even with a 400 watt Surroundsound system, attaining any sound quality was all to no avail. I am now repurchasing these movies singly, but in a standard DVD sound format.
This particular product gives Bluray a bad name.. I would advise you to avoid it at all costs.
