The Very Special Event of the Day
Meets InuYasha’s Italian voices:
Fabrizio Mazzotta, dubbing director
Corrado Conforti (Kouga)
Emanuela D’Amico (Sango)
and many others!

Italian première of the movie:
InuYasha The Movie - Fire on the Mystic Island
(90′, 35mm, original Japanese version, Italian subbed)
Capitol Multisala, screening room 1, 21:00 p.m.

A fresh encounter hold back InuYasha and his friends in their quest to recover the lost pieces of the “Sphere of the Four Spirits”. Across their way, they meet Ai, a half-demon little girl. She claims she was an old friend of InuYasha, and asks help for her and her people.
After the initial surprise, InuYasha slowly recalls of her, reviving fifty years-old lost memories. At that times, the contest to get the Sphere was not started yet, and InuYasha encountered Ai on the Island of Horai, a legendary place where time is frozen and the inhabitants don’t know neither death nor aging. This mysterious land emerges between sea waters, one times every fifty years. No more a heaven ruled by a harmonious society of men and demons living peacefully all together, nowadays Horai is oppressed by tyrant Shitoshin, the Four War Gods. In the name of an enigmatic link that connect InuYasha to the island, Ai asks the half-demon dog to defeat her oppressors, and to grant freedom again to her own people, saving many children from death by sacrifice to the bloody gods. But InuYasha will not be the unique character conjured to Horai: both Kikyou and Sesshomaru approach the island, too, irresistibly attracted by the same mysterious link. There will be a great battle for the life of Horai’s children, in a strange land where past and present will merge together, forming a complex yet spectacular thread filled with many surprises.
Being partly unrelated to the series’ chain of events is a classic concern of all feature-long films spanned by successful TV series. Following this track, the fourth meeting of half-demon InuYasha with the big screen tells a story that pushes apart the consolidate themes of the series. The focus here is about unknown events from the past, with stand-alone development and end. This winning recipe, successfully capturing Japanese audience during Christmas holidays in the last few years, lines up again the well tested InuYasha’s staff of the previous three movies: director Toshiya Shinohara, screenwriter Katsuyuki Sumizawa, and designer Yoshihito Hishinuma. Another Japanese box-office achievement for the character created by Rumiko Takahashi, driven to international reputation as long as many past creations of the prolific mangaka (from Urusei Yatsura to Ranma 1/2). Now, the fourth feature film about InuYasha is coming in Italy, about a year after the triumphal Japanese opening, held in December 23, 2004. The aim is to not disappoint the many Italian fans of the series, following the appealing adventures of the dog demon each week in the past three years on MTV Italia frequencies. The production held by Nippon Sunrise and Shogakukan reveals an effort even greater than the common standards for the Japanese TV-related productions, making this a film that will enter surely the status of classic TV-related cinematic transposition.

How Illusions Born

(30′, Beta SP, original Japanese version, Italian subbed)

This special was made as a special content of “InuYasha The Movie 2: The Castle Beyond the Looking Glass” DVD. It shows the list of the thirty most popular elements in the series. Among others, we’ll see the key scene between InuYasha and Kikyou reenacted with puppets! And if you thought that Sango’s boomerang was a fantasy creation… you can change your mind!

InuYasha vs. Sesshomaru

(26′, Beta SP, original Japanese version, Italian subbed)

This special was made as a special content of “InuYasha The Movie 3: Swords of an Honorable Ruler”. It shows a complete synopsis of the principal clashing encounters between InuYasha and Sesshomaru. The two demonic brothers are in fact perpetually battling each other, but a sort of reciprocal respect prevents each of them from feeling absolute hate against the other one.
