Preview from previous episode

That guy… He seems to have changed to another person.

Could the man called Suikotsu possess two souls in his body?

I don't know what's going on, but I'm sure that he's one of the Shichinintai!

I'll show you what a real combat is!

The awakened Suikotsu has started to attack!

Ginkotsu's pincers are nearing Kikyo!

Next on Inuyasha, "Heading to the Misty Mount Hakurei". Kikyo will explain the powers of this mountain…!

InuYasha’s Jar

Quotes

You’ve to bring Kikyo to somewhere else. Otherwise, she won’t wake up. Then…

Kagome…

So, what shall we do? Is it okay for me to carry her?

Not when Inuyasha is around.

Oddities

Did you notice…?

…when Kagome was ‘osuwari-ing’ Inuyasha, he crashed to the ground even when she said ‘Idiot’ and not ‘Sit’?

“I wish to go, but I can’t.”
— Kikyo
This is one of the many times in the anime where the subtle differences between Kikyo and Kagome are played out. Kikyo, being dead, is unable to approach Mount Hakurei with Inuyasha, unlike Kagome. Yet, it was the same reason that she was dead and needed souls, that Inuyasha had to save her, which in turn riled up Kagome’s jealousy.

[ 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:  Kikyo and Ginkotsu appeared at the foot of the sacred Mount Hakurei, and the one who has split personalities, Suikotsu from Shichinintai suddenly awoke.

INU:   Miroku and Sango and Shippo and Kirara!

KAG:  An excitng adventure unfolds!

INU & KAG: Inuyasha!


[ recap ]

Recap from previous episode. GKS fires at KIK and SKS, who are thrown back. Cut to Yuuta and Chiyo running hurriedly to SKS.

Yuuta & Chiyo: Mister Suikotsu! Mister Suikotsu!

JKS glares at Chiyo and Yuuta, who are approaching SKS. He throws his sword at the kids. They are shocked and freeze in action. SKS rushes forth to block the attack.

SKS:  Please stop…!

JKS's sword slashes SKS's shoulder instead.

INU:   What the hell is going on?

KAG:  (thinking) Isn't that man one of the Shichinintai?

Yuuta and Chiyo rush to SKS, crying.

Chiyo:  Mister Suikotsu…!

SKS:  (weakly) I'm okay. Did you guys get hurt?

Yuuta:  No!

Chiyo:  Not at all.

Something within SKS suddenly throb. He winces. Children's singing is heard in the background, singing "Clean is dirty, as dirty is clean." repeatedly.

Yuuta:  Mister Suikotsu?

SKS's hair suddenly turns spiky. He grabs Yuuta's by the neck and lifts him.

Chiyo:  What are you doing, Mister Suikotsu?

JKS:   He's awakened.

INU leaps out of the ring of fire towards SKS. SKS laughs evilly as Yuuta struggles.

INU:   Iron Reaver, Soul Stealer!

INU claws SKS's hand, making him release Yuuta. INU grabs Yuuta in time. SKS leaps backwards and lands.

INU:   Who the hell… are you?

SKS:  (chuckles) Me? I'm Suikotsu from Shichinintai.

[ End of recap: 3min 18sec ]


[ Title screen: Heading to the Misty Mount Hakurei ]


[ ACT I ]

Continuation from previous episode. TET is in the background. (It fell out during INU's fight with RKS) INU face off with SKS, while Chiyo tends to Yuuta.

INU:   Suikotsu, you bastard!

SKS:  (laughs) That bastard physician who pretends to be a good man, has been subduing me for so long.

SAN:  That guy…! How could it be? He seems to have changed to another person.

MIR:   Could the man called Suikotsu possess two souls in his body?

KAG:  That must be it. I've heard of it before. This is what people call split personalities. That means a different personality has manifested on him.

INU:   I don't know what's going on, but I'm sure that you're one of the Shichinintai!

RKS:  Suikotsu, here you go! (throws SKS a pair of claw-gloves)

SKS:  (wears the claw-gloves) Brat, you wanted to fight with me, didn't you? I'll grant you your wish.

INU looks worriedly at SKS and then at TET in the distance.

SKS:  What's wrong? Dare not fight with me without your sword?

INU:   (flexes claws) That's interesting. How could you fight with me with your claws? Fight with me if you dare! You Cat Face!

SKS:  (furious) Be careful with what you say. Take that!!!

SKS claws at INU, who leaps above him.

SKS:  (looks up, shocked) What?!

INU:   Iron Reaver, Soul Stealer!

INU claws at SKS, who dodges.

SKS:  You are pretty good, after all.

INU:   Heh! (flexes claws) I'll chop you into pieces!

INU and SKS face off for a while. They both brandish their claws and sprints toward each other, yelling.

INU:   (tries to give SKS an uppercut) Take that!

SKS:  (dodges) I like your moves! I'll show you what a real combat is!

SKS claws swiftly at INU, who backs away. SKS then manages to slash INU across the stomach. SKS continues attacking INU, who is having a hard time dodging.

SKS:  Why are you running away? Aren't you going to chop me into pieces?!

INU:   Don't think too highly of yourself!

INU catches SKS's left claw. Static ensues.

INU:   (shocked) What?!

SKS smirks. He pulls INU towards him with his left claw and slashes him across the chest with his right. Chiyo and Yuuta shriek in terror.

KAG:  (worried) Inuyasha!

SHI:   (on KAG's shoulder) Inuyasha!

INU:   (winces in pain) You bastard…

SKS sniggers and licks INU's blood on his claws. He then rush forward suddenly and attacks INU continuously. INU has a hard time dodging his blows again.

SKS:  Go to hell!

SKS tries to give INU an upper cut. INU dodges and SKS takes the chance to swing his foot under INU's, making INU trip. INU falls to the ground and SKS points his claws at his throat.

SKS:  (raises other claw) It's over.

Yuuta:  Stop!!!

SKS turns to look at Yuuta and Chiyo.

Yuuta:  What's wrong, Mister Suikotsu?

Chiyo:  Please change back to yourself!

INU looks at SKS, who is struggling to make a decision. His body shakes and his clutches his head in agony.

SKS:  (turns around, in agony) Stop it! Stop it…

INU:   (thinking, shocked) What's going on with him?

RKS:  That Suikotsu hasn't fully awakened yet? (scoffs) Well then… Move on, Ginkotsu!

GKS grunts and moves towards KIK, who is unconscious on the ground a distance away.

INU:   Kikyo!

INU tries to go to KIK, but SKS swings his claw at INU.

SKS:  Don't look around.

KAG:  Kikyo…

SHI:   Inuyasha can't get near her either.

KAG:  (determined) We have to save her.

KAG tries to break out of the ring of fire, but can't.

SHI:   What should we do?!

MIR:   Leave it to me.

SAN:  But, Priest… I thought you couldn't use your Wind Tunnel yet.

MIR:   Now's not the time to say that!

KAG:  Priest Miroku…

MIR:   Sango, you look after Kagome, and open a way for me with your Hiraikotsu.

SAN:  Understood. Hiraikotsu!

SAN throws HIR, which creates a wind blowing away some of the flames. MIR takes the chance to run through the fire. MIR tries to run to KIK. RKS then appears in front of MIR and spews a flame, blocking his way.

RKS:  That's not good. I'm your real opponent.

MIR glares at RKS. Cut to INU fighting with SKS.

INU:   Move away!

SKS:  If you want to get her, you'll have to defeat me!

Behind SKS, GKS is moving swiftly towards KIK. JKS stands on GKS.

INU:   (thinking) Damn… If I could use Tetsusaiga…

GKS continues moving towards KIK. Everyone looks on worriedly and helplessly.

INU:   Kikyo! Kikyo…!!!

Cut to MIR and RKS.

MIR:   Lady Kikyo!

RKS spews flames at MIR again and laughs. KIR suddenly rush out of the ring of fire and runs towards RKS. She growls.

MIR:   I'm sorry, Kirara. (runs towards KIK)

GKS continues moving towards KIK. Everyone looks on worriedly and helplessly. MIR arrives just in time and grabs KIK before GKS tramples over her.

KAG:  (glad) He did it!

SAN:  (glad) Priest!

Cut to SKS and INU fighting. INU gives SKS a violent punch.

INU:   (glad) You're saved, Kikyo!

Cut to RKS and KIR.

RKS:  (scoffs) She's not our main aim.

Cut to JKS looming over Chiyo and Yuuta.

JKS:   (frustrated) Damn, this isn't interesting at all.

RKS:  (voice-over) If you get rid of the kids, nothing will be left to threaten Suikotsu. In that case, Suikotsu will become a truly evil physician.

Chiyo and Yuuta gasp as they notice JKS.

JKS:   (raises sword) Don't worry. The game will be over soon.

Chiyo and Yuuta shriek and huddle together.

SKS:  (background) Stop it!

Cut to SKS and INU. SKS is clutching his head in agony.

SKS:  I beg of you, please stop fighting!

The green marks on SKS become a lighter. INU looks at SKS for a moment and runs away.

JKS:   (thinking, exasperated) Suikotsu…! You…!

RKS:  (thinking, exasperated) Oh no…! His soul hasn't stabilized yet. If we were to kill the brats, his soul might shatter. (looks at the mountain in the distance) Could it be Mount Hakurei's barrier?

Cut to INU running towards TET. He picks it up.

INU:   I'll kill all of them at once!

RKS:  We shouldn't stay here any longer.

RKS spews flames at KIR, who dodges. RKS then takes the chance to run onto GKS.

RKS:  That's it for today! Come, Suikotsu! We're leaving!

SKS:  Damn you…!

JKS:   (helps SKS up) Let's go, Suikotsu.

JKS and SKS run towards GKS.

INU:   You bastards!!!

JKS hop onto GKS and helps SKS up. GKS then starts to move away.

INU:   Don't get away!!

INU raises TET to do the Wind Scar, but GKS turns around and fires at him. INU leaps and dodges. When the smoke dissipates, GKS is already moving away swiftly.

JKS:   (cheerfully, waving) I-nu-yasha…! Let's meet again!

SKS:  Damn, it's so irritating…

INU glares at the Shichinintai and shakes in anger. Cut to MIR, Yuuta and Chiyo tending to KIK.

Yuuta:  Lady Kikyo!

Chiyo:  Wake up, Lady Kikyo!

KIK is still unconscious. INU walks to KIK and kneels next to her.

INU:   Kikyo. (thinking) Have your Soul Collectors flown away?

Pan sideways, where KAG, SHI and MIR are looking on.

KAG:  (sad, thinking) Inuyasha…

Static is heard in the background. KAG looks up to find Soul Collectors trying to enter the place. The place is surrounded by a barrier and the Soul Collectors disintegrate when they touch the barrier.

KAG:  Kikyo's Soul Collectors…

INU:   They've disappeared?

MIR:   What does this mean?

The remaining Soul Collectors hover around the barrier, with souls in their hands.

KAG:  (thinking) They can't come any closer?

KAG looks at the unconscious KIK for a moment. She clenches her fists in a resolute manner.

KAG:  Kikyo…

INU turns around and looks at KAG, shocked.

KAG:  You've to bring Kikyo to somewhere else. Otherwise, she won't wake up. Then…

SAN:  Kagome…

There is a short pause.

MIR:   So, what shall we do? Is it okay for me to carry her?

KAG:  Not when Inuyasha is around.

SHI:   (clutches onto SAN's shoulder nervously, whispering) I can feel the tension in the air.

SAN:  (whispers back) I think so too, Shippo.

INU looks at KIK for a moment and carries her. He walks away. KAG gasps and looks down.

KAG:  (thinking) I don't want to see the two of them like this, but what choice do I have?

MIR appears next to SAN. SHI is on MIR's shoulder.

SAN:  (whispers to MIR) Does Inuyasha still have feelings for Kikyo?

MIR:   I'm so impressed with Kagome's generosity.

KAG:  Well…

KAG turns to look at them.

KAG:  Can we not talk about that now?

MIR, SHI and SAN are all shocked and embarrassed.

SAN:  Sure!

MIR:   I'm sorry!

SHI:   (cowers behind MIR) I'm scared!

KAG:  (taken aback) Don't… make it too serious.

[ End of ACT I: 14min 16sec ]


[ ACT II ]

Cut to INU-gang and KIK resting under a tree. The Soul Collectors are flying around, depositing souls into KIK's body. INU watches KIK intensely. KIK slowly opens her eyes.

INU:   Kikyo?

KIK:   Inuyasha…

KAG looks away sadly.

KIK:   Where are we?

INU:   Away from the village.

KIK:   I see. That means the Soul Collectors were unable to get near the village.

INU:   Yeah.

KIK:   What happened to them?

INU:   The Shichinintai?

KIK:   Those who held dirty Sacred Jewel fragments…

INU:   They've retreated; they took Suikotsu with them.

KIK:   Is that so? Kagome?

KAG is taken aback.

KIK:   You must have seen it before. The Sacred Jewel fragment on Suikotsu's neck.

KAG:  Well… the clear fragment has become murky.

KIK:   So he just left after that…? It's all the fault of this land.

INU:   (thinking) Kikyo… What are you trying to say?

KIK:   This land is wicked. Anything that emits demonic energy are not able to go near it. It's because Mount Hakurei has purified the surrounding areas.

INU:   Mount Hakurei?

MIR:   I've heard of it before. It's a sacred mountain that could purify evil forces.

KIK:   Yes… The reason that man Suikotsu was able to live in this land was because he had a sincere, pure heart.

KAG:  But, because of the appearance of his another personality, he was unable to stay.

INU:   So, the reason they stopped fighting and retreated was because of Mount Hakurei?

KIK:   Clean is dirty, as dirty is clean. Good is bad, as bad is good. Living is death, as death is living. Yes, Mount Hakurei is much too pure.

MIR:   Mount Hakurei?

SAN:  What shall we do, Priest?

MIR:   Let's check it out.

INU:   Kikyo, what about you?

KIK looks at INU. KAG looks away. KIK notices Yuuta, Chiyo and two other children standing in the near distance, looking sad and helpless.

Yuuta:  Lady Kikyo…

KIK:   I will stay here. I wish to be with the kids for a while. And…

INU:   And…?

KIK:   I wish to go, but I can't. Inuyasha, didn't you see it? My Soul Collectors can't enter this land. I was just able to stand at the foot of the mountain.

INU:   Kikyo…

INU and KAG look at each other.

KAG:  (looks at the sky, thinking) Inuyasha… Do you really…

Cut to the Soul Collectors flying in the sky.

[ End of ACT II: 18min 39sec ]


[ ACT III ]

Daytime. INU-gang is traveling again. MIR is running and SHI is on his back. KAG and SAN ride on KIR while INU runs alone. KIR overtakes MIR and INU and flies in the front.

INU:   Hey, why is Kagome riding on Kirara?

MIR:   That's because she doesn't want to be with you.

INU:   What did I do?

Both SHI and MIR give INU the evil eye.

MIR:   You did nothing, but you were pretty close to Kikyo a while ago. Girls are sensitive about that. Kagome senses you have feelings for Kikyo, so she's jealous. You should just leave her alone for a while. It would not be wise to provoke her until she has calmed down.

INU:   (sprints to KIR) Hey! Kagome!

MIR:   Hey!

SHI:   He's not listening.

SAN sighs. KAG refuses to look at INU.

INU:   Why won't you answer me?! Why are you ignoring me?! Hey, Kagome!

KAG:  (turns to INU, expressionless) What is it?

INU is terrified. He runs back to MIR and hides behind him.


Cut to INU-gang resting on a medow. KIR, SHI, SAN and MIR are seated together, back facing INU and KAG, who are seated a distance away.

INU:   If you want to say something, just say it.

KAG:  (expressionless) There's nothing.

INU:   You're angry!

KAG:  (turns away) I'm not angry.

INU:   Anyway, you should know that now isn't the time to pick a quarrel.

KAG doesn't reply. There is a short silence. INU is about to say something when KAG interrupts him.

KAG:  Inuyasha.

INU:   W-What's the matter?

KAG:  I've talked to you before… About being together… I know there's a bond between you and Kikyo. That's why I can't ask you to forget about her. Anyway, I'm the one who decided to stay with you.

INU:   Kagome…

KAG:  That's why I don't mind about what happened last night.

INU looks at KAG intently.

KAG:  But…

INU:   Yes?

KAG:  (turns to INU, furious) Why are you being so unreasonable awhile ago?! Why wouldn't you leave me alone?!

KAG stands up. INU looks at her, completely in shock.

KAG:  I can't stand it anymore!

INU's face twitches and they glare at each other for a moment.

INU:   (defensive) Y-You are mad!

KAG:  Sit! Sit! Sit! Sit! Sit! Sit! Sit! Sit! Sit! Sit! Idiot, idiot, idiot! Idiot, idiot, idiot! Sit!!!

INU crashes to the ground seventeen times, including the times when KAG said 'Idiot' instead of 'Sit'. Cut to MIR closing his eyes, with sweat drop. SHI is looking on the scene over SAN's shoulder.

MIR:   That's why I told him to leave her alone.

SHI:   Inuyasha thinks too little of Kagome.

INU:   STOP IT!!!


Cut to the four Shichinintai traveling.

JKS:   Hey, Brother Renkotsu. Where are we going?

RKS doesn't answer. JKS is taken aback when he sees KOH ahead.

JKS:   Isn't that Kohaku?

SKS:  Has he come for us?

RKS:  (smiles) We're going to meet Brother soon. Shichinintai is going to be in full force.


Cut to a man with braids on a hill. He looks at the castle on the mountain opposite.

Man: It's there. I've finally found it.

The man grins and laughs happily.

[ End of ACT III: 22min 5sec ]


[ End of episode 109: Heading to the Misty Mount Hakurei ]


[ Preview for next episode ]

The last Shichinintai, Bankotsu, has met up with the gang! First, he'll attack the castle to take back his Banryuu Sword.

Those bastards from the castle are the ones who cut off our heads. Heh! It's better than the past.

Oh no! They're after Koga's fragments! Next on Inuyasha, "Enter Bankotsu: Leader of the Shichinintai".

Groom your head and wait for me!
