Preview from previous episode

Fifty years ago, Sister Kikyo sealed Inuyasha on the Tree of Life. Inuyasha... my sister took the Sacred Jewel... but did she look so peaceful when she passed away?

Let's stop fighting... Be a real human.

You want me to become human? Next on Inuyasha, "A Fateful Love Song of Before We First Met".

The answer... only the Bone Devouring Well would know...

Quotes

That was the first time I'd seen the Sacred Jewel. And... after she was given custody of it, Sister Kikyo's fate changed drastically. She would watch other girls her age indulge in make-up, paint their faces white, and enjoy their lives with vitality.

 

I've purified the Sacred Jewel. As long as I am protecting it, you won't get your way.

Dont' make me laugh! Your whole body reeks of demons' blood! (...) I'll definitely find you not matter where you are! With your intolerable stench, it's easy enough!!

Stench...

 

My mother only left me this and the Fire Rat Robe.

Your mother was human, wasn't she?

Well, yeah... I guess.

This precious thing?

I don't mind. The Fire Rat Robe is good enough for me.

Forgive me, Inuyasha. Without knowing that, I've pierced through it so many times...

 

"Beloved" sounds good... for the subjugation command.

 

It's been fifty years since then... Inuyasha is still sealed to the Tree of Life. Inuyasha is as he was then. At that time, Sister knew her life was over. Then why did she choose to use a sealing arrow and not a purifying arrow? Why did she seal Inuyasha to the tree which transcends time, the Tree of Life? And why... although he hated my sister for sealing him onto the tree, Inuyasha's face still looks so peaceful? I still don't get it... I wonder if a day will come when I will fully understand...?

Writings in the ending song
遙か昔、
桔梗と犬夜叉の戦いが
あった場所に建つ日暮神社。
そこの娘、 日暮かごめは
多感な中學3年生。
いつもとかわらない
朝?迎えた彼女は、
境内の井戸に
いつもと遠う気配?感じる。
これが500年の時?越えた
「四魂の玉」?めぐろ
壯大な冒險の始まりであった......。

translation:
In the distant past, the Higurashi Shrine was built on the grounds where Kikyo and Inuyasha had their conflict. A daughter was born in that place, Higurashi Kagome, a sensitve high school 3rd year student. One morning she sensed something from the well in the shrine. The time travel to 500 years ago, the search of the "Jewel of Four Souls", this brave adventure now begins...

Oddities


This is the first (and perhaps only) time we hear someone other than Sango wield Hiraikotsu.

Did you notice…?

[ ACT I ]

(in progress)


[ Preview for next episode ]

Rumors has it that a holy person, Hijiri, defeated the demon birds and protected a village. Hakudoshi, after hearing word of this, is making his move again.

Those villagers, frightened by the demon birds, gathered around this Hijiri, treating him like a saviour. Right now, Princess Abi is bringing her demon birds to this village where the holy person is.

Even Inuyasha's red Tetsusaiga can't defeat Hakudoshi! Just at this moment, a Sacred Arrow appears and broke the barrier! Next on Inuyasha, "A Single Arrow Calling Up Trouble".

Could this be...?!
