Inuyasha First Season Box Set

Guest Author - Lesley Aeschliman

The Inuyasha First Season Box Set includes five DVDs, which encompass all 27 episodes in the first season. The first three discs contain five episodes, the fourth disc contains six episodes, and the fifth disc contains six episodes and bonus features.

The main menu on the first four discs allows you to play the disc, set up your options for viewing, and scene selection. The menu on the fifth disc includes those options, but adds in 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 five contains four special features. The first is a character relationship guide, which is a web of pictures of all the characters. I had a hard time figuring out the interface for this feature right at first. But after you figure out you need to click on an arrow on a rectangle with the words "Special Features" on it, then you progress your way through the web. On the left-hand side of the screen, it tells what kind of a relationship each pair of characters have with each other.

Next, there are five movie trailers that run back-to-back for Inuyasha: Affections Touching Across Time. I wish this had been set up in such a way that the viewer could choose which trailers they want to watch, instead of being forced to watch them all back-to-back. There is also a textless version of the opening credits, as well as textless versions for both sets of ending credits that appear in the first season.

I was a little disappointed that all the special features were put onto one disc, instead of being spread out between all five discs. Since the special features were put onto a disc containing six episodes, it shows just how much wasted space there is on the first three discs in the set. I also wish there had been a little more in the way of extras (such as a documentary or interviews with people involved with Inuyasha, etc.)

Even with these minor flaws, the Inuyasha First Season Box Set is worth it if you're a fan of the series.

In order to write this review, I checked out a copy of this DVD through the King County Library System. My husband later purchased this set for me as a gift.
