What's so bad about InuYasha? I legitimately think it's better than One Piece/Naruto/Bleach. The manga has great art and the story isn't horrible.

Why does /a/ think it's so bad?

>>101517222
so which Inu Yasha episodes are the ones KyoAni worked on?
>>
>>
>>101517222
Most of /a/ doesn't like it because they watched it as a kid, and think its not moe enough
Seriously thought Inuyasha is a great anime/manga, but dubbed and subbed.
>>
KAGOMEEEEEE!
>>
>>101517222
Too fucking long and dragged out.
>>101517427
Nope, you don't know what you're talking about.
>>
I liked InuYasha a lot. Watched every episode and only have two movie left to watch.
>>
>>
>>101517473
great argument there bud, you sure showed me
>>
Good setting, decent plot, but too repetitive and ultimately bad

Annoying is a good word to describe it
>>
It is better than the big three, but the ending is anti-climactic. Overall, it's still probably one of my favorite anime, not because of the fights, but because i think it proposes a really unique situation between Kikyo, Inuyasha, and Kagome, where everyone i talk to about it has a different opinion on the love triangle. Personally, Kikyo is love, Kikyo is life, but that's me.
>>
>>101517473
I agree that the anime is a bit dragged out, but how is that any worse than the holy trinity of shonen shit? Inuyasha only had 167 episodes, One Piece is already 600+.
>>
>>101517552
Let's not forget all the fujoshit baits and characters that shouldn't have been added in the first place. There's plenty of that
>>
>I legitimately think it's better than One Piece/Naruto/Bleach.

that's not saying much

>>101517597
One Piece is genuinely good.

Which is the best out of the four movies? I'm thinking about rewatching.

Worst part about it was Naraku basically proto-Aizen because Bleach isn't even creative on the bad things it does

If it was just a "search for the magic macguffin" quest I probably could take the long time exploring sengoku japan but this guy derails the plot and every time the MC got a new power-up Naraku just pulls something else out of his ass.

This. Kikyo is love, kikyo is life. But she shouldn't have been such a bitch to inuyasha once she failed to drag him down to hell (to be together forever) and found out what really happened from her sister. The romance between inuyasha and kagome didn't even develop yet.

Looking back Inuyasha wasn't that great of a show. But it was entertaining to a certain extent and had a great OST.

But I can't really hate on Inuyasha since that's what got me into anime in the first place.
>>
>Grrr gotta kill Naraku
>After fighting ten million chumps, feel strong enough to kill Naraku
>Haha fuck you Inuyasha I'm invincible
>Fight 10 million more chumps to overcome the bullshit

>"B-b-but Anonymous it was a love story"

Yeah, a shitty one, with a glacial pace and a thousand detours.
>>
>>101517222
>>101518356

thank you for this anon
>nostalgia
Very big fan until the filler and repeater eps.
I never read the manga but I really loved this anime which really got me into other shows.

Anyone like the final act?
I totally want to get a inuyasha meido tattoo

So? I loved the detours. The ultimate goal was to beat the shit out of Naraku but in the end this was an adventure story. Compare it to pokemon. Ash wants to cath 'em all, but it takes him through a lot of interesting adventures.

You're just too used to 12 episodes of pedophilia and beta MC's of current anime.

I liked it too, back then when it aired (I was 15 then). I watched it subbed and even back then I always hated the dubs a lot.
I think you'd see more threads on /a/ if the IY fanbase wasn't one of the worst ones around.
I know it's stupid to hate a show for its fanbase, but that's how the internet works.
>>
>>101517222
Cant get over the fact that Kagome comes from future but desides to wear same clothes 95% of time not to mention it being skirt with no panty shots.

>>101517345
Can we have a reboot of the show just like that? Bit more serious, more focused on the interhuman relationships and not so much unnecessary monster of the week.
Streamlined to 2x24 episodes.
First one to point out that "interhuman" is wrong, because he's not quite a human and Kikyo isn't anymore etc. get's a pat on the back.
>>
>>101517567
>but how is that any worse than the holy trinity of shonen shit?
Inuyasha drags a bare bones premise and plot while One Piece is much bigger in scope, there's also more variety per arc while in Inuyasha IT'S THE SAME DAMN SHIT OVER AND OVER AGAIN.
>>
>>101517597
One Piece is actually good, better than Inuyasha in fact.
>>
>>101522321
It's true, but most of the fanbase has moved on to new shows. I barely see Inuyasha mentioned at all anymore. I doubt we'll ever see a spinoff or reboot, but it would be interesting.

This. Inuyasha could have been great if the length was cut in half or more but it dragged on it suffered the same problem as Ranma 1/2.

It was shit but I liked it as a kid and I still have a soft spot in my heart for it.
The story should have ended much sooner, ad Kagome was a really annoying bitch. I took pleasure in the fact that Inuyasha very obviously liked Kikyou more.

The one good thing it had was the Kagome-Inuyasha-Kikyou love triangle, since Kagome was essentially the same person as Kikyou, which added an interesting layer. Sango and Miroku were also nice.

Everything else sucked though, especially Naraku
>>
I liked it when it was on TV but eventually got bored with it because it dragged on far too long and started repeating itself.

Also there was one episode where some bad guys said that a jewel shard had been in their family for generations and the jewel had literally just broken and I was like what?
>>
Kikyou was dead, that's what.
Oh god, why would you replace the best girl with a shitty brat from out of fucking nowhere?
>>
Really, the only good thing the series had going for it were the OPs and EDs.
>>
Naraku grind made it a huge turnoff
it grinded and dragged so much it got stale halfway through
>>
inuyasha is shit

Because it got boring when the plot went nowhere.

I honestly don't like the story too much.

I mean I would but it is very repetitive to an annoying level. At least it had a conclusive ending. That's more I can say for Takahashi's other manga

This. It starts with a lot of promise but then meanders endlessly in impotent filler and annoying, poorly done love triangle bullshit.

Disappointing.

The pokemon anime is awful - if your point is that both ended up being bad despite having good potential, then I agree.

Was the thing Rumiko did after IY really terrible or something?

She's one of the highest profile artists of all time and that manga seemed to sink without a trace.

... how is it not?
>>
>>101528154
it always seemed so girl oriented.
of all the people I've met that liked it, all were girls with few exception, some of them weren't even into anime but they liked inuyasha all the same.
Maybe it's a huge case of peripheral demographic, but it feels like it was geared that way from the start.
>>
>>101528045

It starts off feeling like a shounen, but then again most of its fanbase consists of girls and romance ends up taking priority over plot.

idk.
>>
>>101528343
>girl oriented

That's just because the MC was a girl.

Inuyasha and Kagome were basically co-protagonists, but it's still a shounen.
>>
Inuyasha like every single series from Rumiko Takahashi suffers from Takahashi syndrome, starts out decently then after 6 chapters her alzhimers kicks in and it turns into a cluster fuck that reuses the same jokes and plot points for the next 500 chapters.

Ranma never got fixed so he stops transforming, Naraku was never killed, and Godai never gets the girls because the stories never advanced, just kept circling the drain till i fell asleep and stopped giving a damn.
>>
>>101517222
the story is decent, and the dub is also good too.

10/10

would get stoned and stare blankly at.
>>
Watched it as a kid when it was airing. I remember liking it, but again, I most certainly don't like the same thing as my past 9 years old self.

>I legitimately think it's better than One Piece/Naruto/Bleach
I agree.

Inu Yasha is not only the first anime I watched online but also the first one I watched subbed. It was not Naruto or Dragon Ball and Bleach & One Piece anime didn't even exist back then.

The sequel is actually good enough that I would still recommend it after reading a summary of the S1 plot.
Damn, I loved Sesshomaru. Every new episode I hoped that I'd see more of him & Rin. I rarely did ;_;
>>
>>101528515
>Naraku was never killed
What?
>>
Inuyasha was many people's gateway intro to anime outside of whatever was on TV.
It took a while to air new dub episodes so people went online and discovered watching anime in Japanese with subtitles.
It's fandom quickly killed the shows popularity.
Many of its fans were annoying obnoxious sk8ter girls who flooded the internet with pictures of whatever the older brother's name was half naked.


Inuyasha reminds /a/ of its embarrassing middle school self. Did they have fun watching it? Yeah... but Middle School Syndrome is a real thing and no one wants to remember it.
>>
>>101531720
The 1st part is the main thing. It was a gateway anime for the worst kind of fanbase and contributed to the genesis of the userbases of deviantart and tumblr.

I think most anons were probably ambivalent towards it when it aired on western tv. You were either old enough to have a frame of reference and already knew of better stuff, outgrew it quickly and discover bigger and better things, or you became one of the early-2000's internet proto-cancers while internet communities and forums were still a fad.

I honestly can't fathom anyone who would sit through hundreds of episodes entirely bereft of plot advancement and watch the same recycled jokes, slapstick humour and paltry juvenile fanservice repeated ad nauseum.
>>
Inuyasha was one of the first anime I ever watched. I'll always like it, even though mediocre at best.
