Neon Alley brings out their movies for limited runs on their service throughout the year, which certainly makes it a mini-event to check out since it’s a bit more time limited. The latest one that they’ve brought in is the 2003 feature film Inu Yasha: Swords of an Honorable Ruler, which they released on DVD back in 2010 and as part of a complete Blu-ray collection in 2013. The new presentation brings the show out in its original Japanese language with English subtitles as well as the English language edition, both of which you can check out below.

Plot concept: Many years ago, the Great Dog Demon wielded the Three Swords of the Fang. Upon his death, he bequeathed a sword to each of his sons, Inuyasha and Sesshomaru, leaving the third sword, the wrath-filled Sounga, locked away forever. Now that the Sounga’s power has been awakened, these two battling brothers must put away their sibling rivalry and face off against the force that spells doom for all mankind.
