As someone who once bought VHS tapes of his favorite anime, the idea of simulcasting always just makes me feel all warm and fuzzy. No matter what the show, the idea of simulcasting, or near simulcasting really just reinforces the evolution that our absorption of this media has taken. Now, we often make fun of the feudal fairy furry tail show known as InuYasha (Kagome! InuYasha!) but I don't honestly dislike the show. So, when we're told that Shonen Sunday will start airing the Finale as a simulcast on October 3rd, you can pretty much color me interested.
 
What says the peanut gallery? Does the low, low price of free and legal make InuYasha more appealing, or does it still get a pass?
 
Notice: Gia's liveblog on the subject specifically states that the shows will air at www.shonensunday.com/anime , which, if you go to currently gives you a forbidden page warning. Now, this could just been them protecting their assets, but apparently that part of the site will launch with Inyuasha. Maybe Gia can clear this up for us later. Oh well, either way you should go play around on their site anyway.

Maybe it's time I catch up on my Inuyasha episodes now.

The first anime I watched on TV was Inuyasha (though I didn't buy the behemoth series).  I'll certainly be watching this.  Despite the childishness and repetitiveness it had at points, I liked it enough to continue then and now.  And besides, I want some closure.

So it's going to be a standard TV broadcast and not on-line ? If it is a going to be on TV I hope YTV picks it up real soon.

@Fabe: As far as I'm aware, Viz hasn't announced any distribution plans other than on their Shonen Sunday website, and the eventual video release.
 
Though, you can console yourself with watching Monster on Syfy pretty soon.

Well if its streaming via Hulu like the old series is then I'm out of luck since they can't steam to Canada yet  so I'll have to wait and hope YTV does pick it up. As for Monster I don't have syfy so I won't be watching that either but I might check out the manga.

I've watch all the episodes of Inuyuasha and all I want out of Inuyuasha: The final act is two things.  One Naraku needs to die and two Kagome and Inuyuasha need to become a couple.
 
I love that ad when they first air it on Adult Swim.  I though it was very funny.   I tape most the episodes of Inuyuasha on VHS tape.  I threw most of those tapes away.  I never bought tapes of anime from japan back in the day.  I hear that some of those tapes would cost at least 100 bucks and just for one episode of an anime on that VHS tape!
