"Many thanks to everyone at Rumic World/The Inuyasha Companion for embracing me as part of the "team" last year after I volunteered to summarize the weekly Inuyasha anime raw broadcasts from Japan. During the project, I felt like I've 'lived' the adventure battling Naraku and his minions, sharing frustrations, witnessing growing pains (…improving my Nihongo skills… learning to live with sleep deprivation) as the characters pursued their search for the Shikon no Tama shards and blossomed into young adulthood.
Like many of you, I share a sense of loss as the Inuyasha anime series concludes. However, I'm optimistic we haven't seen the last of our brash young Hanyo, his friends, or his enemies, yet! We've got lots to proud about and much to anticipate. With our continued support, I believe it’s a real possibility we’ll enjoy the animated conclusion to this wonderful story someday.
Please consider episodes 166-67 "Ja Mata" (See You Later!), rather than "Sayonara" (Farewell). Now that the episode summary task is over (for a while!), I'll be helping with other exciting Inuyasha Companion site resource projects!
So desu na … watashi no tomadachi, domo arigato gozimasu!
Ja Mata!"
