Inuyasha: The Final Act
Kagome is a modern Japanese high school girl. Never the type to believe in myths and legends, her world view dramatically changes when, one day, she's pulled out of her own time and into another! There, in Japan's ancient past, Kagome discovers more than a few of those dusty old legends are true, and that her destiny is linked to one legendary creature in particular--the dog-like half-demon called Inuyasha! That same trick of fate also ties them both to the Shikon Jewel, or "Jewel of Four Souls." But demons beware...the smallest shard of the Shikon Jewel can give the user unimaginable power.
Alternative Names: Inuyasha Kanketsu-hen

Adapted from the manga, Inuyasha. Also into anime series, [Inuyasha] as well as several movies. Inuyasha Kanketsu-hen will cover the story in volumes 36 to 56 of the manga.
Continuing from the original series with little change is art direction. Even down to the new opening being done by 'Do As Infinity'. Inu Yasha - The Final Act is a worthy finish to such an icon to anime.
I've always loved this series. Kagome and Miroku are great, and Kikyo is the only tragic character I've ever liked. It's got the perfect blend of character development, plot and fantasy. Unfortunely, this episode treis ti do too much. It's got half a season's worth of plot points crammed into it. I always preferred the custom of using filler episode to ease into the new season. Of course, it won't discourage me from watching the whole season to see how all the subplots get wrapped up.
