For the first time ever, the full original Inuyasha TV anime series is coming to Blu-ray in Japan in a four-volume Blu-ray box set. The transfer will include an HD remaster of the series in 16:9 widescreen for all 167 episodes alongside the original 4:3 SD version that was televised. To celebrate, the original creator Rumiko Takahashi drew an illustration of the titular character.




The first Blu-ray box for Inuyasha is scheduled to be released in Japan on December 24, and include the first 44 episodes in HD widescreen and the original SD versions. With the second release scheduled for February 25, the third on March 25, and the final box on May 27. The creditless openings and endings have also been remastered for the release but will retain the original 4:3 ratio on the Blu-ray discs.


Each collection also comes with soundtracks from the seasons collected, with the first box containing the first of the Inuyasha music collections, and the other four boxes containing other collections which contain the music recorded back in the early days of the series. The soundtracks do not feature the opening and ending theme's TV size versions.


You can watch some of the original episodes of Inuyasha right here on Crunchyroll, with its sequel series, Yashahime: Princess Half-Demon also streaming here. The second season of Yashahime is scheduled to start on October 2.
