The main menu of the first three discs allows you to play the disc, set up your options for viewing, and scene selection. The menu on the fourth disc includes these options, as well as a choice for special features. In the Disc Set-Up menu, you can choose between the Japanese and English language tracks, as well as choose whether or not you want to see the subtitles.
Disc four contains four special features. The first feature is a "Textless Opening," which is essentially the opening that appears at the beginning of each episode, but this version doesn't have the text that covers the pictures. The second feature is "Textless Ending." However, instead of having a textless version of the ending that appears on this box set, it is a textless verion of an ending that appeared on one of the previous DVD box sets.
The next special feature is labeled as "The Finale With the Japanese Cast." This feature runs for about eight minutes, and it includes interviews with the Japanese voice actors for Inuyasha, Shippo, Sango, Miroku, Kagome, and Sesshomaru. There is also some footage of the cast recording dialogue for the final episode.
The last special feature on the disc is labeled as, "Questions for the English Language Voice Actors." This feature runs for about 18 minutes, and it was recorded at the wrap party for the English dub actors. Unfortunately, with the feature being recorded at the wrap party, there's a lot of ambient noise in the background, which can make it hard to hear some of the voice actors when they're talking. The English dub actors for Inuyasha, Kagome, Shippo, Miroku, Sango, and Koga are interviewed for this feature.
If you're a fan of Inuyasha and want to have all of the episodes on DVD, then you need to acquire this set. I appreciate the fact that Viz Media included the interviews with the Japanese and English voice actors. However, I wish the audio quality had been better on the interviews with the English dub actors. Even with that flaw, though, this set really needs to be acquired by an Inuyasha fan in order to complete their DVD collection.
In order to write this review, I checked out a copy of this DVD box set through the King County Library System.
