It's Naraku's demons!
They seem to be searching for something!
Could it be the traces of Divine Hijiri? He used only an arrow to destroy Princess Abi's flock of demon birds.
Hakudoshi's barrier has been broken, too!
Has Naraku sensed this, too? That the Divine Hijiri the villagers mention might be Kikyo...? Is he seeking her out to kill her?
To Naraku, she is a threat...!
Next on Inuyasha, "The Mysterious Light Guiding the Saint". Soul collectors? Is Kikyo still alive?
(Kindly provided by Steven R Anderson)
That may be right... But if they meet, Inuyasha will go weak in the knees. Though Kagome will forgive him, but...! If it were me, I'd chuck him off a clift and make sure he broke all of his legs!
You want to throw me down, you mean...
Onigumo's attachment to Kikyo is embedded in that soil. Apparently it opposes Naraku and protects Kikyo... The only one who can use Onigumo's burial soil is Kikyo.
[ Prologue ]
INU: Amidst the chaos of the Warring States Era, we continue our journey.
KAG: In a time 500 years ago, everyone’s fate is tied to the fragments of the Sacred Jewel.
INU & KAG: Let’s battle on! Inuyasha!
KAG: The bird-wielder, Princess Abi, attacks the village. Standing in her way is Divine Hijiri, the one who destroyed Hakudoshi's barrier with an arrow... Could it be Kikyo?!
[ Preview for next episode ]
When I was at the foot of the hill, I met Divine Hijiri. But it turned out to be just a Shikigami controlled by Kikyo.
So the real Kikyo is underwater... Is she alive? Or is she...?
Please make your decision.
Will you save her, or will you not?
The only person who can save her now is you.
Her life is in your hands.
Next on Inuyasha, "Kagome's Innate Choice". Only I can save her? Do I have to choose?
