Inuyasha fans cheering for Winter Olympics

Cheering for the Olympics?! Smile for your country, smile for your gold medals. :)

Now a true fan question: If Inuyasha participated in the Olympics, which sport do you think he will excel at? Would it be skiing, speed skating? Do you think he will be able to gang up with the rest of the characters to play ice hockey?!

Be imaginative. Let us know your thoughts!

Heeyyy everyone, ready for the summer?!
Hehe, so aside from the usual excuses of how I've been busy, I'd like to first & foremost apologize for the lack of updates~!

However, I'll have some wallpapers and e-cards up and ready-once some minor inconveniences are worked out, because things are running a little slow at the moment :P I'd like to thank you loyal Inu fans out there for your patience((:
Okayy, so word on the street is... Both American actors of Sesshomaru and Kagome are being replaced on Inuyasha: The Final Act! Even David Kaye has comfirmed that he isn't dubbing Sesshomaru's voice )': Wahhh....
He's being replaced by Michael Daingerfield. As for Kagome, Kira Tozer will be taking over. (Some of you may know her as the voice of "Viveca" from Barbie: Three Musketeers.)

Here are some sample voices of the replacements...

Hm.. Personally, I don't think it's much of a difference. They are pretty similar to the original voices.

**Here is another sample of Kira (Kagome) from when she was in Barbie: Three Musketeers: [SKIP TO 05:23]

(Turns out David Kaye was in the same movie o__o He played the horse!) [SKIP TO 03:05]

That's all the news I've gathered so far. But feel free to email me at if you have any further regards to my update. GOOOD DAYYY~!((:

Regarding Inuyasha the Final Act English Dub

Hey there!

Regarding the earlier feedback I looked around on the internet and seemed to find that this may NOT be the final dub. I found out that it was the Animax version, and according to one of the fan's e-mails the credits at the end were not translated, which could mean it is a fan dub.

Sorry for any dissppointment I caused, as of now no body is fairly sure if this dub is official or not (most likely not), because Viz media was not credited for it, as it should have been.

Regular posts will continually be added for any further news!

The e-mailing is still open for you all to send in your point of view on the matter.

InuYasha the Final Act English Dub

Regarding my earlier post about the new english dubbed episodes of Inuyasha the Final Act, I would like to say this: (because i apparently forgot to include it in my post earlier) I hae no idea what happened with the voices. It sounds like every character has been re-cast, when really it was stated that only Kagome and Sesshomaru were. I am disspappointed with the new voices, but everyone has their own opinions.

Please e-mail me to give me your take on these "new" actors.

Whether you enjoy it (or not) the dubbed episodes criteria is all up to you. Please giveme your feedback, i would love to read it, because I know that I'm pretty disappointed myself.



Posted by Kagome on 2011-03-06

More Quick News About the Final Act!

Hi there InuYasha lovers! Just another quick bit of news for those of you who didn't hear this yet. I recently picked up information that, sadly, Kagome and Sesshomaru's voice actors will not be dubbing their characters for the Final Act. This is a tentative statement and may or may not actually take place, but this is just what I heard. I can't wait to hear the voice actors though! Keep on watching InuYasha! Kagome :)

Posted by Kagome on 2010-08-08
Hey there fellow InuYasha fans!!!

I have just aquired information that an english dub of InuYasha the Final Act is now finally in progress!! Yay!! :) On May 14 Kelley Sheridan (Sango) confirmed on her facebook that the final act dub has already started and that she has already started voice acting for Sango! Which also means that the original english cast will return for the dub! This is all great news and VIZ should be almost done with the dubbing so as I said before, we must all be patient, hopeful, and keep our fingers crossed!!! :)

Kagome :)

The Final Act English Dub Release Date

Alothough many rumours are going around, I have recenly acquired information about when the Final Act will be english dubbed. VIZ has picked up rights for the english dub a while ago, and adult swin has said they will be airing new animes in the fall. The final act should be dubbed around the month of September, because it lines up perfectly for when the dub is expected to be completed!!! We all just have to wait a little while longer and keep our fingers crossed!!! :)

Final Act Episode 3 Summary

My fellow IYWorld admin, Kagome, brings you another detailed and captivating Final Act summary for

  • Episode 3 - Meido Zangetsuha


  • Posted by Kagome on 2010-04-09
    Hi there! I have found some rumors about Inuyasha the Final Act coming to Canada! Here are some of them: Adult Swim has made an announcement that they accquired three new anime titles, two of which are still a mystery. Word on the anime message boards is that one of the remaining titles is InuYasha: The Final Act. And that's a well founded guess, as Viz has already announced that they've accquired the anime and are probably dubbing it. After that, [as] will probably air it on TV, as other Viz titles have done. Also, Inuyasha: The Final Act English Dubbed is to be released April 20, 2010 (so this month). Assuming it's being released on that day (which is a Tuesday) I would hazard a guess and say that it will air the following weekend on Saturday night, as all anime is. Surely April 20 it'll be all over the net though. But, I would check Adult Swim that weekend to make sure. I'm hoping it'll be up there These are tentative statements and nobody is exactly sure, but these our everyone's assumptions.

    Hi guys. It's been awhile since I posted an announcement. The web admins have been monitoring the performance of this site and noticed there have been a few hiccups with connections here and there these past couple of days. I'd like to apologize on behalf of our team if you had experienced problems lately.

    There are a couple of changes with different sections of this website:

    • Poll is going to be upgraded. In the mean time, the old polls will not be active.
    • We were informed that, the host of our fanarts contest, has closed down. So we're talking with them to slowly migrate over our fan art submissions. No new submissions are accepted right now.
    • Youtube channel. We're going to establish our own youtube channel. This will be fun. Look forward to it!

    And so you wondered��.and wondered�..

    Why was IYWorld closed during the weekend?

    Answer: Since we're getting 10000+ visitors DAILY, this site's been using too much of our server's resource, so we got shut down. Finally, after 2 day's rest, our merciful host has allowed us to come back live again! I'm sure IYWorld's daily visitor rates will continue to go up, so we really got to work hard to save our resources to stay with the current host. As a result of this, the Virtual Bot Game have to be temporarily shut down. This will NOT be a permanent shut down, we are working at this time to purchase a new server JUST for the bots alone. I know you guys love them, so the bots will return soon!

    Shameless Fund Raising: Be it one or two dollars, if you have some extra change and would like to help out by making a donation, we would appreciate it SOOOO very much! We will need a large amount of fund to be able to afford a new server, so every bit help out. Thanks in advance everyone. :D

    New Episode on CN and InuYasha Movie News " On the IY movies. There is no authorized USA distributor for any of the Inu movies yet, but Viz reportedly is in negotiations to get them. Neither of the first 2 movies has been dubbed in English yet. English-subbed versions exist and can be found online and on DVD. The 3rd movie won't be released in Japan until Dec. 21. Trailers and promos for that movie can be found online, in Japanese. It's about the rivalry between Inu and Sessho as they try to keep a 3rd power sword left behind by their doggy daddy (the sword to rule the world) from falling into villainous hands. As to when more new Inu may appear on Adult Swim, the answer right now is that I don't know. There's been rumors of another new 16-episode block in Nov., but I've not seen any solid official or unofficial confirmation of that yet so it remains just a rumor, not fact. We do know that the entire midnite-1 a.m. prime action hour on AS will open up for possible new anime in early Nov. as the reruns of Inu, FLCL and Blue Gender all will have ended around Halloween. So look for some word soon on what AS plans to be running as of Nov. 3 in the 12.5-1 slot and Nov. 10 for the 12-12.5 slot. They may just choose more reruns of something, but since they'll have gone to 6 hours nightly at that point, I think the odds are good that we'll see something new in there.

    News obout InuYasha in July & more fanarts added!
    • There have been sayings floating around about how IY will be taken off Adult Swim in July, here are some semi-official news from the IY Forum: "Relax, looks like IY will be absent only for the month of July and then will return in its usual AS time slot Aug. 4. A hiatus isn't a cancellation. It's just a pause, probably done to give the other new shows they're running this summer a fair chance to find their own audiences, and to give Viz/Ocean a chance to finish dubbing the next batch of IY episodes. (^_*)" (thx, herbkir, for constantly keeping us updated with IY news)

    New InuYasha Episodes?!?

    We may be seeing new Inuyasha episodes this summer. The April 18 Answerman column on Anime News Network reports that new Inuyasha episodes will be run THIS SUMMER. The columnist, Zac Bertschy, was quite adament about that but he didn't give the exact start date nor reveal how many new episodes there will be. Since the May rerun of the "CN 36" will end July 3, we may be seeing new episodes July 7. That would mean promos for new episodes should be running on CN/AS in June. This comes from a hard news-media source so perhaps we can start getting excited again. - source (fan email: Herb Kirchhoff) received 3151 unique visitors yesterday, our highest visitors per day yet!

It will be moved up by a half hour the evening of Monday March 31, to 12:30 a.m. instead of 1 a.m. (Technically, for those who program their VCRs to time-shift IY, that would be 12:30 a.m. the morning of Tuesday April 1).

    More proof of IY's Strength (contributed by:Herb Kirchhoff), the Web site for a trade newsletter in the pop culture retailing industry (comic stores etc.) reported this week that its Feb. retailer survey of the hottest-selling pop culture items showed an Inuyasha DVD, Vol. 2 "A girl's Best Friend" was the third largest selling anime DVD in that retail channel during Feb. It came in third behind 2 Robotech episode compilations. Considering how many other anime DVDs are out there, that's very impressive.

    Interesting InuYasha Stats - contributed by Herb Kirchhoff

    Here�s an indicator of Inuyasha�s popularity relative to the other series running in the weeknight Adult Swim block.  Everybody knows how you can use Google search-engine hit counts as a rough analytical tool for spotting patterns and trends perhaps worth more sophisticated analysis, by noting how many hits you get on each search string.  I ran a Google hit analysis on the

    Adult Swim shows by searching the anime show name, then adding the word fan to the string and finally adding the words Adult Swim to the string.    Here�s the results as of March 5:

    anime Cowboy Bebop 133,000 hits   +fan 43,000 hits   +Adult Swim 2,060 hits

    anime Inuyasha             58,100          +fan 13,500          +Adult Swim 1,350

    anime �Home Movies� 36,300          +fan   2,750          +Adult Swim    270

    New IY Wallpapers & Tips from IY fans

    2 new wallpapers added - arigatou, Kagura ^_^.

    Tips from Herbert Kirchhoff "Tell the fans that if they want to program their VCRs to catch IY episodes, they should make sure their VCR clock is set correctly, and then set their machines to record every Tues., Wed., Thurs. and Fri. from 1 a.m. to 1:30 a.m. eastern time, or whatever local time IY is run in their part of the country. Make sure there's a tape in the machine and the satellite or cable box is on and set to the Cartoon Network channel before going to bed. IY is worth learning how to program the VCR for. Do a trial run to make sure things work correctly. I set my VCR up and it worked perfectly. Just remember to keep watch on CN's times since the IY World schedule info indicates they may run IY earlier starting in April. And watch for power glitches that could erase the program or stop the clock."

    Inuyasha will be back on air in March!

    Guys, after receiving a number of fan emails regarding adult swim switching IY's schedules around, I think there are some confusions about the official airing schedule. Please visit The TV Schedules section for more info on this.

    More IY Support from fans: Here's another email from Herbert Kirchhoff on ways to contact Cartoon Network and demand more IY:

    Found another way to contact Cartoon Network folks, via the Web. There's a page on their Web site where you can post feedback about their programming.  Web address is: It's easy to do.  But be polite and to the point -- avoid ranting. And if you use the Wab portal, give 'em a way to get back in touch with you like your e-mail address 'cause that adds credibility. These are businesspeople you're talking to and they won't respect us and listen to us if we come across as offensive.  Remember, they won't know we're out here until we tell them.  I'll be hunting up more ways for contacting CN and Adult Swim folks and will let you know as I find them. Tell 'em nicely how much Inuyasha means to us.  And spread the word to other Inuyasha fan sites on how to reach these folks!

    Posted by Shippo on Monday February 10 ,2003
    We want more Inuyasha! Guys, I received a fan email from Herbert Kirchhoff who kindly provided us with the information we need to get in touch with Cartoon Network, the US TV network that airs Inuyasha. Below is a copy of the email in it's original form:

    We should help make sure Adult Swim brings Inuyasha back and gets more episodes beyond Eps. 36.  We should write to them and to their parent Cartoon Network to let them know our desire.  You might want to put these postal addresses on your site with suggestion to write.  Yes, I know snail mail is lots of trouble to do, but that's why business execs pay attention to it where they ignore e-mails.  They figure that if someone's gone to the trouble of writing a real letter, they must really be concerned! Addresses are: Adult Swim    1065 Williams Street NW    Atlanta, GA 30309 Cartoon Network   1050 Techwood Drive NW    Atlanta, GA 30318 They won't know we're out here unless we tell them.  

    If you guys get any replies from them and wish to let other fans know about it, please email me.

    The second piece of news is the addition of a new profile editor to our IY World team. Please welcome Sango44!
