Determined to continue on and find a way to stop the malevolent and otherwise wicked villain known as Naraku, InuYasha and his allies find themselves in some of the most dangerous encounters they have faced yet, and not only that, but they're in a race against time to prevent some of their worst nightmares from becoming a reality.

With Naraku becoming stronger by each passing day, InuYasha and friends discover other problems in their midst, such as the ever repeated conflicts with an aristocratic Sesshomaru, the whereabouts and safety of Kohaku, the secrets to unleashing the most powerful abilities of the Tetsusaiga, and even Naraku's remaining reincarnations themselves!

It's not before long that InuYasha and Kagome are faced with an even greater challenge other than defeating what seems to be an undefeatable Naraku. Both of them soon realize that their lives may never be the same again, and that it'll take bravery, determination and the will to fight on if they ever want to make it out of a terrifying situation alive, and find the ultimate path to their happiness.

I have to say, this is definitely something you don't want to pass up on if you've been a true fan of the original series. I feel like there's so many amazing elements of the sequel that make it really stand out on a rank of its own. Fans of the original series finally get a sense of closure with a proper ending, and many of the conflicts of the original series are resolved.

To me, the series really wastes no time in getting things settled. Unlike the original series, there's no real "filler episodes" other than perhaps ONE, which I don't personally consider. I thought it was pretty useful since it gave important information about Tetsusaiga's ultimate power.

Aside from the no-filler drama people always seemed to complain about, I thought the actual continuation of the storyline was written extremely well. There's lots of drama, twists, mini cliffhangers and some really in-depth moments that would bring any major fan to tears.

Overall, if you're a fan of the original series and are one of those people who got disgusted with the length of the series and its fillers, I definitely recommend you try to finish up the original series the best you can and then watch this. It'll really make everything come together. . . Like a lovebug to a windshield.
