LOTR Anime at Dragon Con 2004

August 30, 2004 at 8:25 pm by xoanon  - 

Kaiser Mike writes: At Dragoncon, there is going to be a showing of the fan-produced parody movie entitled “Inu Yasha: Lord of the Jewel”. This film takes animation from the popular anime “Inu Yasha: A Feudal Fairytale” (as seen on Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim lineup) and hijacks the plot of the Tolkien Trilogy to forge a comedy of epic epicness! Showing in the Vinings room Saturday night, it is currently scheduled to start around 9:00 pm. Catering to both Ringer and Otaku tastes, this is a must-see for any Dragoncon goer with a sense of humor and a half hour to kill! [www.neobattlepeasant.com]

Additional Notes: This is a “Fan-dub-parody” which is an anime culture custom. These are made by splicing clips of existing shows, and re-doing the dialogue and soundtrack. They are best viewed in group settings, and are made for one purpose: to make people laugh.

Were it to be rated it would probably have a PG-13 rating, mostly for language and suggestive dialogue.

The plot of “Inu Yasha” is very similar to the scenario of LotR. In it, a group of travelers are on a quest to neutralize the evil of a small mystical jewel.
