Nice Memory of InuYasha

I enjoyed myself in Chengdu cosplay convention last weekend. It is a nice cosplay party where I met some cool cosplayers dressing all kinds of fantastic cosplay costumes. The guys from Naruto, Kuroshitsuji, sailer moon, pokemon were catching my eyes there. They all look very attractive. I had some photo shoot with them. Now, I got the pictures and they all look cool. Great cosplay show, wonderful cosplayers.

Now, when I look at the cosplay pictures, I feel a little down. Facing nice pictures, I will recall all the good experience of the cosplay con, why I will feel lost? Maybe, I am very touchy. But I have to say I miss InuYasha, and I want to watch the classic anime, though there is no more new sequel since March 29th, 2010. InuYasha is over, not like Naruto or Kuroshitsuji.

It is a long time for an InuYasha fans. Sometimes, if you can’t get what you want, you only can recollect what you own. This classic Japanese manga series is written and illustrated by Rumiko Takahashi. It premiered in Weekly Shonen Sunday which is a famous manga magazine on Nov 13th, 1996, and concluded on June 18th, 2008. Because it is very popular, it was adapted as two anime television series produced by Sunrise. The whole series has a total of 167 episodes. I never missed any of the series. After a 5 years’ waiting time, the sequel was published on Oct 3th, 2009 which covers the rest of the manga series. It named The Final Act and it ended on March 29th, 2010.

That is not a long history for a Japanese anime. What I have to say, I didn’t see the whole of the manga, but I watched all of the anime TV series. So I guess all the plot of anime is as the same as the manga itself. This Japanese series’ protagonists are a time-traveling middle school girl who is a half demon, a lecherous monk, a fox demon, a demon slayer, and a nekomata.
They lived in Sengoku period and seek to find all the fragments of the jewel of four souls and to keep the jewel out of the hands of rebels, especially Naraku. I am not sure the anime’ plot is as the same of the manga’s, since I didn’t have time to read the classic manga. I am being a busy officer now.

So, anyone who have read the whole manga and watched the two anime TV series could reply me? Give me some different information about the manga.

However, I love the InuYasha anime which accompanied me for the school life. Because of the anime, I got a buddy Lee who has the same interest as me. Now, I think the InuYasha will be with me for another time, because cosplaying has been a hot hobby for me. And InuYasha certainly has become a nice choice for my cosplay costumes, though I have to wear a fake ear and a long wig. You know I have a big ear and short hair. That is a tough job for my dressing. Whatever, I like it, so I choose it.
