At New York Anime Fest, VIZ Media gave InuYasha fans great news - starting this Saturday, October 3rd, you will be able to watch InuYasha The Final Act streaming online via Hulu and ShonenSunday.com, only a few hours after the Japanese broadcast!
The stream will include English subtitles for fans who don't happen to be fluent in Japanese, and a new episode will be available every Saturday until the series finishes its run. InuYasha The Final Act is the latest major title to join the world of online simulcasting, like such popular titles as One Piece and Naruto Shippuden.
The show has been long awaited since the original InuYasha series ended in 2004, and continues the story of extraordinary schoolgirl Kagome Higurashi and the half-demon InuYasha.
When an enchanted well draws her into the past, Kagome finds her destiny tied to the doglike half-demon Inuyasha and a mythical gem called the "Jewel of Four Souls," of which the smallest shard can grant the user unimaginable power.
Throughout their quest to restore the shattered Shikon Jewel, Inuyasha and Kagome have never faced an enemy more deadly or more cunning than the demon mastermind Naraku. With the Shikon Jewel nearly whole and in Naraku's hands, the race to collect the remaining shards intensifies and a battle of epic proportions is brewing on the horizon...
