Quotes

That’s why I can understand your pain. It’s not your fault… They wanted you to be divine…

 

Such a smart guy, but you’ve did something stupid. You think too much and it’s too late for you.

 

I’ll show you what’s different between us. (…) The difference is I would never betray my buddies.

[ 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:  An incident that occurred in Mount Hakurei, the barrier had been dissolved… Inuyasha’s demonic powers had returned… It’s time for a fight between Jakotsu and Inuyasha!

INU:   Miroku and Sango and Shippo and Kirara!

KAG:  An excitng adventure unfolds!

INU & KAG: Inuyasha!


[ ACT I ]

Recap from previous episode, in the fight between JKS and INU.

JKS:   I'll keep your dog ears as a souvenir!

JKS swings his sword at INU, who blocks with TET. The blades swerve around INU and bind him. INU falls to his knees, glaring at JKS.

JKS:   (laughs) If I pull this sword, you would be in pieces.


[ Title screen: Goodbye: Jakotsu's Requiem ]


JKS:   Farewell, Inuyasha. You're the only one I like amongst all the men who were killed by me.

INU:   Idiot! I'm different from the past!

INU breaks free from the blades and throws a Wind Scar at JKS.

JKS:   Wind Scar!

The Wind Scar hits JKS directly. Pieces of the cave ceiling falls and covers JKS. INU starts to walk away.

INU:   It's over…

JKS's coughing is heard in the background.

INU:   You're still alive?

JKS:   (weakly) Stop the nonsense… Just kill me now! I'll rest in peace if I were killed by you.

JKS coughs weakly again. He is covered by the rubble. INU scoffs. He sheathes TET and walks off.

JKS:   You're going to let me off? If you don't kill me now, I'll attack you again. Don't look down on me, I'm very stubborn.

INU:   I'll kill you then.

INU runs off into the cave.

INU:   (thinking) This is… Naraku's scent! It's coming from the same direction as those demons! Naraku is in the middle of the Mount Hakurei!

INU runs further into the cave. Cut to JKS buried in the rubble.

JKS:   That bastard Inuyasha… He is too naïve! However… (winces in pain and grimaces) Perhaps this is the end…

CUT TO FLASHBACK from episode 103 when JKS first fought with INU.

JKS:   This is Shichinintai Slasher's Snake-Bone sword!!

INU:   Go to hell!

Cut to episode 110, when the Shichinintai were on their way to take back BKS's Banryuu and take revenge.

BKS:   Don't screw this up, you guys!

Cut to JKS and BKS drinking sake after slaying the entire castle. Cut to Sesshomaru fighting with JKS and nearly killing him in episode 115. Cut to previous episode when BKS praised JKS for being a great guy, even though it's a little weird.

JKS:   Is that so?

BKS and JKS laugh heartily. Cut JKS fighting a human INU.

JKS:   You are Inuyasha, aren't you? Your human form is cute too.

BACK TO PRESENT.

JKS:   Well, it's alright… I've had my fun. (closes eyes)

RKS walks up to JKS. JKS opens his eyes.

RKS:  Forgive me, Jakotsu.

JKS doesn't reply. He merely smirks. RKS bends over and takes JKS's shard in his neck. JKS's disintegrates and only his bones is left.

RKS:  I need your Sacred Jewel fragment. I need to survive longer. No matter what I do.

RKS walks away. A Poison Insect appears and takes JKS's hairpin on the ground. It flies away.

[ End of ACT I: 5min 54sec ]


[ ACT II ]

KIK is walking with her Soul Catchers towards the foot of Mount Hakurei.

KIK:   (thinking) Recently, many things have ran away from the Mount Hakurei.

KIK gasps as she notices HKS seated in a barrier up ahead.

KIK:   (thinking) A barrier? A sacred barrier… It is the same as the Mount Hakurei's barrier. This must be the person who erected that barrier.

HKS opens his eyes. Static surges from Mount Hakurei.

KIK:   (thinking) Evil aura is leaking out from the broken barrier. Is it Naraku's evil aura?

KIK reaches HKS and kneels down in front of him.

KIK:   With respect, Mister. I'm a lowly priestess.

HKS:  First the priest, and now a priestess? Are you pursuing Naraku as well?

KIK:   Was Naraku hidden in the sacred ground that you created?

HKS:  Good observation! Are you able to read my mind?

KIK:   I know what your soul is made of.

HKS looks at KIK in silence and surprise.

CUT TO FLASHBACK of NAR speaking to HKS in the pit.

NAR:  It is alright to have hatred. Those fools revered you as a saint, and they promised that you'll become a Buddha incarnate by burying you. Then, they threw you into the darkness of solitude. Hate… Hate the humans… Hate the entire world…

BACK TO PRESENT.

HKS:  It's funny, isn't it? I've saved so many people and people assume that I'm a saint… But, I got lost and suffered in the end. Then, my soul was saved by the demon, Naraku.

KIK:   Are you really glad to be saved? (thinking) Then, the sadness…? What is this sadness that comes from the barrier?

HKS:  I was not a saint. Before I died, I realized that…

KIK:   You realized that your soul can't be freed? Naraku came into your soul… However, Naraku hated people and protected evil… Did you wanted to be like him? If you still keep the barrier around this sacred ground, your soul will not be saved. Is there anyone who can live without committing a sin?

HKS:  I had been forced to play such role. And I had achieved it.

KIK:   (closes her eyes) I was like you when I was alive. I had hoped that I'd attain enlightenment in the end.

HKS:  I see… You are also dead?

KIK:   That's why I can understand your pain. It's not your fault… They wanted you to be divine…

HKS:  I can't be a saint anymore… Unable to detach myself from the human world, my soul was banished to hell.

KIK:   To cry over life itself, it's not a sin. Please dissolve this barrier…

HKS:  What will you do if I do so?

KIK:   I wish to touch your soul.

HKS:  Are you trying to pray for my soul? You're just a dead priestess.

KIK looks at HKS sadly.


Cut to INU sprinting in the cave.

INU:   (thinking) Why are there tremors? It feels like a heartbeat. With each pulse, Naraku's scent gets stronger. Naraku is here! (unsheathes TET) I've finally found it!


Cut to RKS in another part of the cave.

RKS:  Could it be Naraku's evil aura? (takes out JKS's shard, thinking) I think I better use Jakotsu's shard. I can use t to escape or to fight… (puts it into neck) I want to live longer!


Cut to KAG and KOG looking at Mount Hakurei.

KAG:  (thinking) Mount Hakurei is strange. The barrier becomes unstable. Could it be… that something has happened to Inuyasha and the others?

KOG:  What's the matter, Kagome?

KAG:  Koga…

KOG:  Are you okay? Do tell me if there's anything I can do.

Cut to GIN and HAK peeping from behind a boulder.

HAK:  Koga gets a chance to approach her…

GIN:  (smiles slyly) Let's see what he'll do!

HAK:  Inuyasha is inside the barrier.

GIN:  Sis is alone.

HAK:  Even though it's unfair, it's a good chance!

GIN:  Do your best, Koga!

Cut to KAG looking at KOG intently.

KAG:  Koga.

KOG:  Kagome…

Cut to HAK and GIN looking on nervously. KAG moves SHI and KIR into KOG's arms.

KAG:  Please take care of Shippo and Kirara!

KOG:  Ah…

KAG:  I'm going to check out the barrier! (runs off)

KOG:  Ka-Kagome! Wait a minute!! Oi!

Cut to GIN and HAK crying disappointedly.

GIN:  K-Koga…

Cut to KAG running worriedly.

KAG:  (thinking) Please hold on, Inuyasha! Everyone!


Cut to INU fighting some demons.

INU:   Get out of my way! Get lost!

INU slays the demons and continue running.


Cut to RKS coming out of a cave. He is shocked to see BKS sitting on a boulder up ahead, with his back facing him.

RKS:  (thinking) Bankotsu…!

BKS:   You're alright, Renkotsu?

RKS:  Yes. (walks towards BKS slowly, thinking) That bastard Bankotsu. He is using the fragments of Kyokotsu, Mukotsu, and Suikotsu. He is also using the fragments that I stole from Kagome for the Banryuu sword. I have the fragments of Ginkotsu and Jakotsu. That's right… if I can get him away from his weapon, we will be equals. This is the right time for me!

BKS looks down forlornly. When RKS reaches him, he suddenly grabs RKS's neck and takes out two fragments without turning around.

BKS:   That's great! (tilts head and looks at RKS) I see. (stands and faces RKS) You still have one more, don't you?

RKS:  D-Damn you…!

BKS:   Such a smart guy, but you've did something stupid. You think too much and it's too late for you.

RKS:  Do you intend to kill me?

BKS:   (holds up JKS's hairpin) I wonder, what should I do? Did you kill Jakotsu because of the fragment?

RKS:  You are the same as well! Anyway, power is everything. The one who gets more fragments will be the winner!

BKS laughs.

RKS:  What is so funny? You possess fragments in your body too! We are all the same!

BKS:   (holds up RKS's shards) Well, do you want to try?

RKS:  What are you saying?

BKS:   Take it!

BKS throws RKS's shards back at him. RKS catches them and looks at BKS in disbelief.

BKS:   What's the matter? Don't worry, I won't use the Banryuu sword.

RKS puts the shards back into his neck.

BKS:   I'll show you what's different between us. What's the matter? Hurry up! I'll come over if you won't.

BKS runs towards RKS. RKS panics and fires his cannon at him. BKS leaps and lands in front of RKS. RKS panics and fires again.

RKS:  Die!

BKS dodges. RKS is really desperate now. He fires randomly, hoping to hit BKS, but BKS dodges effortlessly. BKS lands in front of RKS and pulls his cannon downwards.

BKS:   What's the matter, Renkotsu? Just carry on!

RKS backs off in horror and trips.

BKS:   What's the matter? Hurry up! If you don't come, I'll go after you again.

RKS:  Damn!

RKS somersaults backwards and takes a sip from his gourd. He then spews a line of flames burning BKS.

RKS:  (laughs) D-Did I get him?

BKS:   That's not as easy as you think!

BKS throws JKS's hairpin towards RKS. It strikes his chest. RKS falls backwards as the shard in his chest flies out. BKS walks up to him.

RKS:  (terrified) W-What's wrong? Why?! Your skills have changed indeed!

BKS thrusts two fingers into RKS's neck and takes out the remaining shards. RKS falls over and disintegrates into a skeleton.

BKS:   The difference is I would never betray my buddies. (closes eyes sadly) What a pity… I'm the only one left…

A Poison Insect appears, takes the shard on the ground and hands it to BKS.

BKS:   Understood. I must settle it!

BKS walks over to Banryuu. Images of Kyokotsu, Suikotsu, Ginkotsu, Mukotsu, Jakotsu and Renkotsu flash across his mind. BKS picks up Banryuu and faces Mount Hakurei determinedly.

BKS:   Shichinintai, this will be the final battle!

[ End of ACT II: 16mon 8sec ]


[ ACT III ]

Back to KIK and HKS. The barrier around HKS disappears.

HKS:  Well, I've dissolved my barrier. Dead priestess, will you pray for my soul and dissolve the barrier of Mount Hakurei? But, while I was alive, my soul was tainted with hatred. I don't think my soul can be saved.

KIK:   Honestly, I am unable to save your soul…

HKS is shocked.

KIK:   I'm just wondering… Why are you sad?

HKS:  S-Sad…?

KIK gets up and hugs HKS.

KIK:   Even though I've touched your soul… I can't sense any hatred and malice. (hugs tighter)

CUT TO FLASHBACK of NAR touching HKS.s

NAR:  Hate… It's alright that you hate…all humans and the entire world.

BACK TO PRESENT.

HKS:  I was…

KIK:   You were not crying because of your hatred for humans or the world.

CUT TO FLASHBACK of HKS crying alone in the pit.

HKS:  (voice-over) That's right. I wanted to die admirably, as a saint. But, that was not granted. I did not want to know… my weakness. I was overwhelmed, and I cried over my weakness.

BACK TO PRESENT.

KIK:   It was painful, wasn't it?

HKS:  Yes…it was painful.

KIK:   You have served many people. Please… Please be free now.

HKS:  Can I…?

KIK:   Yes, sure you can.

HKS closes his eyes. His body disintegrates and his souls floats upwards. KIK smiles. She then takes out Rasetsu no Kansuke's hair (from episode 87) and looks at it sadly.

KIK:   (thinking) There are none in this world who can live without committing the sin. Those who try to live forever in a divine form, those who push the boundaries of kindness, and those who are tainted by evil… Everyone wishes to be saved.

KIK stands and lets go of the bunch of hair. The hair disintegrates into souls which float upwards too.

KIK:   (thinking) Well then… Kansuke…

The souls of Kansuke merges with HKS's and breaks into tiny pieces.

KIK:   (thinking) You've become a saint…

Mount Hakurei starts to rumble.

KIK:   (worried) The sacred ground…?

Pink mist starts to surround the mountain and parts of it starts to shatter.

KIK:   (thinking) The barrier has been dissolved…?


Cut to demons rushing out of Mount Hakurei.


Cut to KAG running towards the mountain. She stops and gasps.

KAG:  That's…! All the demons are flying out of Mount Hakurei!


Cut to SES-gang on a cliff over-looking Mount Hakurei.

JAK:   Lord Sesshomaru! Lord Sesshomaru! The mountain!

The mountain is not surrounded with pink light and mist. SES is not pleased.


Back to KAG. Thousands of demons rush out of the mountain and some of them fly towards her.

KAG:  (thinking) They're coming!

KAG tries to draw and arrow but fumbles and drops it. One of the demons knocks her to the ground and flies towards her menacingly. KOG suddenly rush out and destroys the demon.

KAG:  (glad) Koga!

KOG:  (smiles) If something happens to you, the stupid dog will not let me off!

KAG smiles brightly.

KOG:  (clenches fists) Well, let's fight!


Cut to INU sprinting in a deep cave.

INU:   Come out here, Naraku!

Suddenly, part of the cave wall crumbles and BKS appears.

BKS:   Inuyasha, you won't see Naraku as yet.

INU glares at BKS and clenches his teeth angrily.

BKS:   You will have to defeat me first!

INU:   Bankotsu…!

[ End of ACT III: 22min 5sec ]


[ End of episode 120: Goodbye: Jakotsu's Requiem ]


[ Preview for next episode ]

All those who pursue Naraku have gathered at Mount Hakurei! Bankotsu, the last defense for Naraku, blocks Inuyasha's way.

Damn! Are you going to get in my way?

Of course! All my buddies in Shichinintai were dead in battle. I'm going to avenge my buddies.

Naraku's using you to fight the battles for him!

Next on Inuyasha, "Decisive Battle! The Last and Strongest Shichinintai".

I don't take orders from anyone! Anyway, you have to get past me first!
