Viz Media's anime site, Viz Anime, is expanding on their offerings a bit today by promoting the first Inu Yasha movie as now being available there. Inu Yasha the Movie: Affections Touching Across Time clocks in at a hundred minutes and is presented in its original Japanese language only with subtitles. Using the Hulu platform, Viz is able to get the movie out in front of non-traditional fans through the main Hulu site (as well as emerging areas, such as Hulu Plus which will be available to numerous Internet connected devices). To date, the majority if not all of their offerings on their anime site have been in the original Japanese language.
Inu Yasha the Movie: Affections Touching Across Time was directed by Toshiya Shinohara and saw release back in 2001. The film worked off an original story by Rumiko Takahashi with Katsuyuki Sumisawa providing for the screenplay itself. The feature had a pretty good budget of about $18 million in Japan.
Plot Summary: 200 years ago, InuYasha's father sealed away a powerful demon from China named Hyoga... A Shikon Jewel shard awakens Hyoga's son, Menomaru, inspiring him to absorb the remains of his father's power to take control of the world! It's now up to InuYasha and his friends to stop this nearly invincible foe!
