You may remember that back in July, I’d had my fingers crossed for a simulcast of Inu-Yasha: Kankestu-hen. Well, it’s official; Viz announced at its panel at New York Anime Fest this Sunday that they would be simulcasting the new Inu-Yasha series. Called “Inu-Yasha: The Final Act” in English, the series will be adapting the last 21 volumes of the Inu-Yasha manga for TV, picking up where the previous series left off. The series will begin airing Saturday, Oct. 3 (that’s this coming Saturday) at shonensunday.com/anime as well as on Hulu, so don’t miss it!

After Five Years, “Inuyasha” Anime to be Resumed

Thursday, July 16th, 2009 Anime News

The Inuyasha anime, which stopped airing in 2004, is now set to experience a revival. The original anime had a very unsatisfactory and inconclusive ending, with the story only reaching up to about volume 36 out of the 56 manga volumes eventually written. Now, with the manga having ended last June, the anime is picking up where it left off. The new anime, Inuyasha Kanketsu-Hen, will air on Japan’s YTV in the fall and will complete the story. You can be sure I’ll be watching it.

EDIT: According to The Rumic World, VIZ has already acquired the rights to this new Inu-Yasha anime. Hopefully this’ll mean a simultaneous release. Keep your fingers crossed!

Fairy Tail

With 15 volumes released in Japan, and six released in the U.S., Hiro Mashima’s (Rave Master) newest manga Fairy Tail is finally getting an animated treatment.  Fans of the series don’t have to wait long, as the series will begin airing in Japan this October.

The animation will be done by A-1 Pictures and Satelight, studios hand-picked by Mashima to animate and produce the series after Mashima’s previous series Rave Master was cut short.
