"558? I thought there was 167 episodes all together?"<BR itxtvisited="1" /><BR itxtvisited="1" />There were 558 manga chapters and 167 television episodes, this article however is like so many others pretty pointless, did Inuyasha run a little to long yes, but was it a bad show no in fact it was pretty enjoyable if not repetitive, the Band of Seven story Arc was freakin awesome (that was in season 5) and it was after that season that they should have ended the show as episodes 130-167 were not anything special.<BR itxtvisited="1" />The first five seasons of Inuyasha were pretty enjoyable for the most part.<BR itxtvisited="1" /><BR itxtvisited="1" />If the writer of the article wanted to talk about overly long shows he should have gone ahead and mentioned the following:<BR itxtvisited="1" /><BR itxtvisited="1" />Pokemon- 276 episodes, then its had sequel shows that have all been like 100 episodes, plus countless movies and tv specials.<BR itxtvisited="1" /><BR itxtvisited="1" />Detective Conan- The show that ran for like 50 episodes before being canned on Adultswim ran for over 500 in Japan, plus like Pokemon had a lot of OVAs, movies, etc.<BR itxtvisited="1" /><BR itxtvisited="1" />The Dragon Ball Saga- 3 shows making around 500 episodes plus around 30 or more movies.<BR itxtvisited="1" /><BR itxtvisited="1" />One Piece- Is still on and running at 362 episodes and like 8 movies or something.<BR itxtvisited="1" /><BR itxtvisited="1" />The Gundam Saga- While not all related the Gundam shows add up to probably 600 episodes if not more.<BR itxtvisited="1" /><BR itxtvisited="1" /><BR itxtvisited="1" /><BR itxtvisited="1" />I am not complaining about these shows just that Inuyasha is hardly the only show to run way past its course.<BR itxtvisited="1" /><BR itxtvisited="1" /><BR itxtvisited="1" /><BR itxtvisited="1" />

"Though some fans are understandably upset, the end of Inuyasha is not necessarily a bad thing. Manga and anime series in general are well-known for rambling on after the story's main climax played out ages ago, but if there was an award to be won for taking this flaw to the extreme, Inuyasha would surely win it." the writer does mention that other manga series have repeatedly fallen for their own long winded finales, it just mentions that Inuyasha would take the cake. ok thats arguable, I've never heard of "One Piece" or "Detective Conan" and Pokemon might win and award for being long winded, but its hardly anywhere near the same calber as Inuyasha, Gundam or DBZ saga. Inuyasha is fun watching on and off again, but daily or weekly viewings week after week, anything becomes stale. I mean hell, I LOVE giant robots but I cant watch an Armored Trooper Votoms marathon either so I know where this dude comes from. outside of anime... our American series have fallen prey to the same exact trap...cough (The SIMPSONS) cough.....

Ha ha, I wouldn't mind seeing Pokemon end, either (actually, I think that's happening, but I might be wrong). I'm a little more lenient towards Pokemon though because it's a series for little kids. No one praises it for story depth. I sat through most of Dragon Ball Z, and that certainly dragged on at times (the Freiza Saga), but the different story arcs made it feel like it was going somewhere.

somewhere like a game of Rock, Paper, Scissors?
