  3. Cool, thanks for the info. I’m glad Viz is picking up Kekkaishi as well (I was getting tired of the fan-subs).

  4. i was always wondering when they would finished the series. just about a few weeks ago i have found out that there is going to be a new inuyasha season coming out and im so excited but i have a few questions… when is going to come out in english? or is it going to be in english when it come out in october?

  5. It’s going to be a long while before the new InuYasha is English-dubbed. Viz has to wait for Sunrise- the Japanese company that licensed the anime, to air the series in October. When there are enough episodes, Viz will have them dubbed.

  6. I have been a huge lover of inuyasha for a while now and I saw a small bit of inuyasha and the dragon scaled tetsaiga on and i have to say that i really can’t wait for those new episodes to come out. what i have seen so far is just awesome!!

    It´s a petty to have only 26 episodes. I Hope they make some more.

    Great news, but only 26 episodes? I wonder how much of the manga they’ll cut out? I hope the great character development seen in the manga will hold true in the anime release. Well, I’m just happy that the producers are going to complete the series! ^_^

  9. I am sooo excited, I cant wait till they put Inuyasha in english I have been waiting 5 years for this to finally come. I to hope that there are more then 26 episodes. I wonder how long it will be before its in english in america. I hope it wont be to long. Inyusha rocks.
