[ Prologue ]

INU:   It's now time for Inuyasha!

KAG:  To find the Sacred Jewel fragments,

INU:   I have to defeat Naraku with this Tetsusaiga!

KAG:  The Shichinintai have disappeared into the sacred barrier. Koga of the Wolf Demon Tribe and Inuyasha’s brother, Sesshomaru, had a fight with Naraku’s followers at Mount Hakurei.

INU:   Miroku and Sango and Shippo and Kirara!

KAG:  An excitng adventure unfolds!

INU & KAG: Inuyasha!


Recap from previous episode, the battle between INU and BKS on Hijiri Island. INU then leaps high up in mid air, raising TET

INU:   Give it back!

Suddenly the iron club on the ground flies up and strikes TET just when it's about to hit BKS. INU gasps in shock. TET reverts back to its rusty state and the iron club falls to the ground.

INU:   (thinking) Saint Hakushin's…?

BKS swings Banryuu and sprints towards INU. Suddenly KAG fires a Sacred Arrow at BKS and it strikes his arm. BKS stops, shocked. The flesh around the Sacred Arrow disintegrates. Cut to BKS fading away within a barrier.

INU:   Don't you run!!! (thinking) D-Damn it…it's a barrier!


Recap from previous episode when INU-gang are at the base of Mount Hakurei.

INU:   Hey Miroku. Is Naraku really hiding on Mount Hakurei?

MIR:   Sango and I will check out Mount Hakurei.

SAN:  Wait for us here, Inuyasha and Kagome.

INU:   Do be careful, when you go investigate.

MIR and SAN look at INU and smile.

MIR:   Yes, we will.

SAN and MIR walk towards Mount Hakurei.

KAG:  I hope they'll be alright.

INU:   We must trust them now.


[ Title screen: Koga's Isolated Battle ]


KOG and some wolves are running around the base of Mount Hakurei.

KOG:  It's here!

KOG tries to get nearer into the valley but is pushed back by a barrier.

KOG:  (frustrated) Damn it. It's no good here either.

HAK and GIN are running towards KOG tiredly.

HAK:  Damn it. Koga has never bother about us.

GIN:  Once he's made up his mind, he won't change it.

HAK:  There he is!

GIN:  Koga, wait up…!

KOG:  You guys are slow! What took you so long?

HAK and GIN stop near KOG and pant, out of breath.

HAK:  What are you… talking about?

GIN:  We're not slow, but you're too fast.

HAK:  Koga, let's give up already.

GIN:  We've been searching the mountain for days, but we haven't found a way to get through the barrier.

HAK:  Furthermore, this mountain is quite creepy…

GIN:  No matter how hard we try, we still can't get through the barrier.

HAK:  So, Koga…

GIN:  Let's just give up.

KOG:  (fierce) Don't mess around! The Shichinintai are definitely here! I must get through the barrier today!

Cut to RKS and GKS inside the barrier, looking at KOG-gang. RKS is standing on GKS.

RKS:  As I thought, those idiots can't see us.

GKS laughs in agreement.

RKS:  (thinking) These barriers are incredible. It makes me sick, but it's pretty effective. (speaking) Alright, Ginkotsu. Let's start from his leg. Blow off that bastard's legs!

GKS laughs and lowers his cannons towards KOG-gang.

HAK:  But, Koga…

KOG:  Shut up!!! Those Shichinintai bastards are hiding in there! I must get rid of them today!

RKS:  Are you sure you can do that?

KOG gasps and looks inside the barrier, but can't see anything. Suddenly, GKS fires and hits the group, who are thrown off. GKS and RKS move out of the barrier.

RKS:  (scoffs) I was just about to blow off your legs.

KOG:  You bastards!


Cut to INU, SHI, KIR and KAG waiting on another side of Mount Hakurei. INU is staring at the ground and twitching impatiently.

KAG:  Inuyasha.

INU:   Huh?

KAG:  Don't be so impatient. Could you please calm down?

INU:   I'm not impatient.

KAG:  Stop shaking your leg already.

INU realizes and hugs his leg in frustration.

SHI:   I wonder if they're alright. Those two… I wonder if they're really alright.

INU:   Keh! At least they're more capable than you.

SHI:   You idiot, that's not what I'm talking about!

INU:   What are you talking about then?

SHI:   (blushes) I'm afraid they might…

KAG:  Can you make it clearer?


Cut to MIR and SAN walking up Mount Hakurei.

MIR:   I wonder how far do we need to walk from here. I don't sense any bad aura, and nothing seems out of ordinary.

SAN:  If not for what happened on Hijiri Island, we'd never think of checking this area.

MIR:   But Sango, we mustn't let our guards down.

SAN:  I know.

MIR is behind SAN and looks at SAN's butt intently.

MIR:   We mustn't let our guards down…

MIR smirks and tries to touch SAN's butt from behind while they are walking. He freezes and scowls.

MIR:   (thinking) What's wrong? I felt horrible when I was about to do something bad. Mount Hakurei's barrier is really incredible!

SAN:  (stops and turns) Is something wrong?

MIR:   (defensive) No, no… I'm just mumbling!

SAN:  You're so weird.

SAN and MIR continue walking. MIR lets out a sigh of relief.


Back to KOG fighting with RKS and GKS. GKS moves towards KOG. HAK and GIN are hiding behind a large boulder, looking on.

HAK:  He came out of nowhere!

KOG:  (stands) You were hiding in the barrier?

RKS:  Yes, we were here, right in front of your eyes.

GKS grunts.

KOG:  That means our efforts didn't go in vain. You've finally shown up.

RKS:  (chuckles) That's right. It's because of you, Koga. You have the fragments in your body!

RKS fires the cannons on GKS at KOG, who leaps. He lands and his knees buckle a little.

KOG:  (thinking, worried) Oh no. My leg was hit at the first shot. I have to end this fast.

GIN:  K-Koga!

KOG:  Stay over there!

HAK:  Koga…

HAK and GIN duck behind the large boulder.

GIN:  That monster is so strong, can Koga really defeat it?

KOG, GKS and RKS face off each other.

KOG:  (thinking) Like Kyokotsu, they were resurrected with the Sacred Jewel fragments. If I take them away…

CUT TO FLASHBACK from episode 102 when KOG ripped out the Sacred Jewel fragment in Kyokotsu's forehead.

KOG:  Bastard!

KOG takes out the fragment and Kyokotsu disintegrates into a pile of bones.

BACK TO PRESENT.

KOG:  You bastards… (sprints forth) I'll turn you into bones!

RKS:  Ginkotsu, step back.

GKS moves back into the barrier.

KOG:  You're running away?!

RKS:  We are not running away.

KOG:  What…!

RKS:  We are going to attack you from a safe distance.

GKS and RKS disappear behind the barrier.

HAK:  T-They've disappeared?!

GIN trembles in fear. GKS then fires at KOG repeatedly, who dodges.

HAK:  It's impossible. There's no way he can destroy those bastards!

One of GKS's cannonball hits near the large boulder and pieces of the ground are flung in the direction of GIN and HAK, who duck.

GIN:  Koga, it's dangerous! Let's get out of here!

KOG:  I'm not going to run away like that! (thinking) I can't see them now, what should I do?

GKS continues to fire at KOG repeatedly while he runs around.

KOG:  I have to lure them out of the barrier!


Cut to SAN and MIR walking. MIR is behind SAN, still trying hard to touch SAN's bum, in vain, with an outstretched hand.

MIR:   W-Why…? Why can't I reach it…?!

MIR nearly touches SAN but she turns around.

SAN:  What have you been up to?

MIR:   (retracts his hand) N-Nothing.

SAN continues walking. MIR sighs.


Back to KOG.

KOG:  Damn, it's not going to end!

Suddenly the bombing stops. Steel threads on fire are thrown towards KOG.

KOG:  (jumps) Steel threads?!

HAK:  Oh no!

GIN:  If Koga is caught by that, he'll be pulled into the barrier!

RKS:  Take that! How long can you last?

RKS swing more threads at KOG. KOG leaps higher to dodge and GKS takes the chance to fire at him. KOG is flung to the ground.

KOG:  (gasps and smirks, thinking) That's it…! (stands still)

RKS:  It's about time now. Ginkotsu, get rid of him!

GKS chuckles and fires two high shrapnel at KOG. KOG cowers as the bomb strikes around him. He lets out a loud yell of pain. The area is clouded by smoke. The smoke dissipates to reveal a pile of rubble and KOG is nowhere to be found.

RKS:  (smiles) Has he admitted defeat? (thinking) Anyway, I must get the Sacred Jewel fragments. (pats GKS) Alright, Ginkotsu, move on.

GKS laughs and moves out of the barrier towards the rubble. RKS looks around.

RKS:  I'm going to smash you.

KOG:  (background) Stop dreaming!

KOG suddenly bursts out of the rubble and lands behind GKS, in front of the barrier.

RKS:  You bastard!

KOG:  (scoffs) Well, you were easily fooled. (stretches arms out) I won't let you run into the barrier anymore!

RKS:  Ha! What on earth are you going to do?

KOG:  What did you say?!

RKS:  We have no reason to escape. Aren't you the one who should escape?

GIN & HAK: (pop out from behind boulder) H-He's right!

RKS:  Besides, what the hell can a wounded wolf do?

KOG:  (gasps, thinking) He wants to get the fragments from my leg.

RKS:  Get rid of him, Ginkotsu.

GKS laughs and starts to turn around.

KOG:  Fat hope!

RKS:  Idiot!

RKS takes a sip from his gourd and spews fire at KOG, who runs aside.

KOG:  (leaps high up) We'll soon find out who's the real idiot!

RKS spews more fire at KOG which envelopes him.

KOG:  (thinking) It has to be somewhere in his body… Where is it?

KOG bursts out of the flames and claws at RKS's chest.

KOG:  (yells) Could it be here?!

RKS:  (shocked, thinking) That guy… was aiming for the fragments in my neck!

RKS falls off GKS and collapses to the ground, wincing in pain.

GKS:  Re-n-ko-tsu…

KOG:  (shocked) He…!

GIN & HAK: (shocked) H-He can talk?!

GKS:  (furious) You bastard…you bastard…!

RKS:  Ginkotsu, you…

GKS fires at KOG, who ducks. One of the cannons malfunctions and the cannonball backfires on GKS. GKS lets out a yell.

KOG:  So it's the combination of armor and cannons.

GKS laughs.

KOG:  (shocked) What?

The smoke dissipates to reveal GKS still intact.

KOG:  (stands) Y-You're still alive?

RKS:  T-That bastard…

GKS turns. He looks at RKS and chuckles.

RKS:  (shocked) Ginkotsu, are you going to use that?

GKS grunts and starts to vibrate.

KOG:  W-What?

More cannonballs are rolled out from the sides of GKS. Bombs and guns are all rolled out and pointing at KOG. KOG is horrified. GKS laughs and fires.

KOG:  Hmph! What are you aiming at?

GKS looks up in shock to find KOG high above him.

KOG:  I'm here!!!

GKS ejects his upper torso from the tank body and flies towards KOG. Steel threads are then released and tangle around KOG. GKS then fires at KOG, who dodges.

KOG:  You…! Give it up already…!!!

KOG gets a grip on the steel threads and jumps towards GKS. He twists his legs around GKS's neck and sends him crashing to the ground. KOG is freed and glares at RKS. GKS's head is thrust into the ground.

RKS:  Ginkotsu!

KOG:  You're the only one left.

RKS glares at KOG, clutching onto his chest injury. GKS is heard laughing.

GKS:  I won't let… Renkotsu be killed…!

KOG:  (shocked) W-What?

GKS releases something from his neck and self explodes. The explosion is so huge that it hits everyone in the area.


Cut to KAG, SHI, KIR and INU waiting. INU suddenly looks worried and stands.

KAG:  Inuyasha. Is something wrong?

INU doesn't reply and looks into the distance.

INU:   Let's go.

KAG:  But…

INU:   (pulls KAG up) Just come on.

SHI:   Where are we going, Inuyasha?

INU grabs SHI and starts running. KAG is on his back.

KAG:  Wait a second, Inuyasha!


Back with MIR and SAN. MIR makes a dramatic pose.

MIR:   This time…! I'll touch you for sure!

MIR growls and runs after SAN's butt with his hand outstretched.

MIR:   Wait… Wait a minute…! Wait…a…minute…!!!

MIR struggles to touch SAN, but when he is just about to touch her, he freezes in disappointment.

MIR:   (crying) It… can't be…

SAN:  (sighs) What were you up to?

MIR stares at SAN in horror and then laughs sheepishly.


Cut to JKS and SKS walking in a forest full of tall grass.

JKS:   I'm counting on you, Suikotsu. Don't you dare to turn into a nice guy in the middle of the battle.

SKS:  Shut up. Isn't that why we've taken the trouble to save ourselves from the barrier? That damned physician. If he has a chance, he'll push me aside and come out. It's hard pushing him back.

JKS:   I see. Well, I shall move on now.

SKS:  (scoffs) I know.

SKS and JKS move in different directions.


Cut to SES-gang at a valley. A bridge lies in front of them, which leads to another mountain. SES looks into the distance.

SES:   They're coming. (flies off)

JAK:   L-Lord Sesshomaru?

SES flies towards a forest on the opposite cliff. Suddenly JKS's sword comes flying in his direction. SES deflects it with his claws.

Rin:  A sword?!

JKS retracts his sword and appears from behind a bush.

SES:   Are you Naraku's man?

JKS:   (laughs) You're so smart.


Back with KOG and RKS. RKS is moving slowly and weakly into the barrier. He winces in pain and looks at the Sacred Jewel fragment in his hand.

RKS:  Ginkotsu…

CUT TO FLASHBACK of the battle earlier on. When GKS self-exploded, he threw his fragment in RKS's direction, thus shielding RKS from the explosion.

RKS:  (gasps, thinking) T-This is…

FADE TO PRESENT.

RKS:  I can't die… in a place like this…!

RKS winces in pain and collapses onto the ground.


Cut to INU running with KAG, SHI and KIR on his back.

KAG:  Hey, if we don't wait for Miroku and Sango…

INU:   I can't wait for them like an idiot! (thinking) It smells as if there was a huge explosion. On top of that, I can smell the blood… of a wolf!

They arrive at the aftermath of the battle between KOG, RKS and GKS. Parts of GKS's body are strewn across the ground. KAG gasps. HAK and GIN are on the ground, crying. INU and KAG walk towards them.

HAK:  (crying) I-Inuyasha… Sis Kagome…

GIN:  (whimpering) Koga… Koga is…

Pan sideways to reveal an unconscious KOG buried under a big piece of metal.

KAG:  (shocked) Koga!

HAK:  Koga's legs were injured…

GIN:  And he couldn't get away in time…

KAG:  (thinking) He was caught up in the blast with Ginkotsu?

SHI:   Is he dead?

INU:   (looks at KOG sternly) Stop your nonsense…!

KAG:  Inuyasha…

INU walks towards KOG furiously and flings the metal on KOG away.

INU:   Damn! Koga is a demon! He wouldn't die so easily! Hey, Koga! Stop sleeping and get the hell up!

HAK, GIN and KAG kneel around KOG, calling him.

KAG:  Koga!

GIN:  Koga!

HAK:  Koga!

KOG regains consciousness and opens one eye weakly.

KAG:  (glad) Koga!

KOG:  (weakly) Damn it, I've left out one of them…

KAG:  (smiles) Koga.

GIN & HAK: (dramatic) Koga!

INU:   (relieved, in soft voice) He's alive…

KAG:  That's great… Koga.

KOG:  I'm sorry… to make you worry. (holds KAG's hand)

INU's face changes from relief to fury. Cut to GIN throwing his head back and using his arm to hide his tears.

HAK:  I'm so glad… so glad!

GIN:  Koga…!

GIN and HAK collapses onto each other and falls asleep in exhaustion.

INU:   You wimpy wolf, move your hand away from her now!

KAG:  Inuyasha.

INU looks at KAG in apprehension. KAG gestures to INU to look at KOG, who has fallen asleep in exhaustion. INU and KAG look at the heavily injured and exhausted Wolf Demon Tribe. KAG smiles. INU stands and looks at Mount Hakurei.

INU:   Shichinintai… no, Naraku, you bastard… I'll kill you no matter what.
