As part of the “Its A Rumic World Exhibit” in the Matsuya Ginza department store branch in Tokyo’s upper-class Ginza shopping district, a 30 minute InuYasha animated short entitled “Kuroi Tessaiga” (Black Tessaiga) will premiere.

So its not exactly what us fans have been hoping for, but its a start right?
I wouldn’t be surprised to see this either released on dvd or possibly aired on t.v over in Japan. I totally wouldn’t put it past them to do the latter especially as it might give them an indicator of how well another series of InuYasha would do. The Black Tessaiga more than likely refers to the Meidou power it received as one of its upgrades.
I for one hope this leads to something more. It seems especially promising that they were able to get all the cast back. Although from what I understand they have kept close ties over the years. I know from friends that follow Suwa-san’s blog that InuYasha is a show he is particularly fond of.
Of course a one of is different from a series so it makes you wonder if they would be able to commit to a full series. In any case I’m getting ahead of myself, but I’ll definitely be keeping my fingers crossed for more!
