Preview from previous episode

Everyone stopped breathing!!!

Damn!!! If only I'd figured out who Renkotsu really was…!

What's eating you, Inuyasha?


In the end, you are but a half-demon. You can barely protect yourself. And for you to possess the Tetsusaiga, a sword which protects people, was really unsuitable since the beginning…

Next on Inuyasha, "The First Time Inuyasha Show Tears". It can't be! Open your eyes, Kagome!

InuYasha’s Jar

#107 Kikyo 桔梗 [ききょう]


Get lost. There's no way I'd talk to you about my feelings.

So, are you saying that you've just noticed your own weakness?


I’m not sad at all…


Kagome’s hands are so icy cold now…! Her cheery blossom cheeks now look as white as a dead fish’s belly! You didn’t do your job to protect her, did you?!

I would never make such a mistake!


Clean is dirty, as dirty is clean. Good is bad, as bad is good. Living is death, as death is living.


Oddities and Other Notes



In this episode, everyone except Miroku, Myoga and Kirara cried. Even Kohaku wept.

Did you notice…?

[ Prologue ]

INU:   It's now time for Inuyasha!

KAG:  To find the Sacred Jewel fragments,

INU:   I have to defeat Naraku with this Tetsusaiga!

SHI:   While Inuyasha fought the Shichinintai, their attack caused Kagome and the others to stop breathing! I-I really tried my best!

INU:   Miroku and Sango and Shippo and Kirara!

KAG:  An excitng adventure unfolds!

INU & KAG: Inuyasha!

[ ACT I ]

Night time in the village with the broken grave of the Shichinintai. KIK is standing in front of the grave, while a group of villagers stand behind her. Children's singing is heard in the background.

Old villager: This grave belonged to the Shichinintai, they used to be merciless evildoers. And as you can see, it was smashed in two recently.

Villager 1: That's not all. Their skeletal remains have also disappeared after this incident.

Villager 2: We're very worried that we'd be cursed again…

Cut to a hut in the village. Some children are playing and singing. Back at the grave.

KIK:   I understand. I shall do a purification.

Old villager: (glad) Thank you very much, Priestess.

Villager 1: I feel safe now.

KIK:   (thinking) I just need to calm their minds. But I can't seem to feel any evil presence around here… Rather, it's all clear. (looks at the mountain in the distance, thinking) Could it be the effects of the Mount Hakurei? It's a holy mountain that can purify any soul…

KIK takes out a bunch of hair that belonged to Rasetsu no Kansuke. His last words sound in KIK's mind.

CUT TO FLASHBACK from episode 87 when Rasetsu was dying. He takes his knife and cuts off a bunch of hair.

Rasetsu: I've heard of a place that can save those even as evil as myself. Please…will you at least bury this mage for me?

BACK TO PRESENT. KIK clasps the bunch of hair tightly.

KIK:   (thinking) I'm sorry, looks like I won't be able to fulfill your wish. Living is death, as death is living?

[ Title screen: The First Time Inuyasha Shows Tears ]

Continuation from previous episode. INU runs into the burning temple.

INU:   Kagome!!!

Cut to SHI trying to maintain his fox fire over MIR, SAN and KAG.

SHI:   (turns around as the fox fire burns out, crying) I-Inuyasha!

INU:   (kneels next to SHI) You're alright?

SHI:   (crying) I… I…

INU:   You protected everyone with your fox fire, right?

SHI:   All of them stopped breathing!!!

SHI wails sadly and helplessly. INU gasps and looks at everyone. INU moves towards KAG.

INU:   No way…

SHI falls to the ground and wails.

INU:   (holds up KAG, trembling) Kagome… (hugs KAG tightly) It can't be! (shakes KAG) Open your eyes, Kagome! Say something! Kagome!

MYO:  (jumps onto INU's shoulder) You must not shake her, Master Inuyasha!

INU:   Grandpa Myoga…

MYO:  Both of you will burn to death if you stay here. We have to bring everyone to a safer place.

Another burning pillar falls. INU puts down KAG and unsheathes TET. He yells and throws a Wind Scar, blowing away the rubble and putting out the fire. INU then thrusts TET into the ground helplessly.

INU:   (thinking, shaking in anger) Damn!!! If only I'd figured out who Renkotsu really was… If only I had defeated Ginkotsu faster… Don't cry, Shippo. You did your best.

SHI:   But, everyone is dead now, what does it matter?! It's my fault! If I hadn't brought them to this temple…!

INU:   Idiot!! That means… it's my fault as well.

SHI:   (cries louder) It's all my fault! I'm so sorry, everyone!

MYO:  Hey, don't cry! It's not the end yet. Carry them to an open area.

SHI tries to pull SAN, but in vain.

INU:   Don't worry about it, Shippo. I'll do it.

SHI:   Inuyasha…

Cut to KOG sprinting in a forest.

KOG:  (stops, thinking) Kagome, please be safe.

HAK:  (panting) Wait up, Koga!

GIN:  (panting) Is this the right way to find Kagome?

KOG:  Yeah, there's no mistake. (grinds teeth angrily, thinking) That stupid dog-face… Could he have failed to protect Kagome?

The panting GIN, HAK and the wolves reach KOG, who spins off again. Pan upwards to reveal KOH standing on a branch on top of them.

KOH:  So… that girl is dead?

An image of SAN and KIR appears momentarily. A tear trickles down KOG's cheek.

KOH:  (wipes away tears) Why are there tears? (looks up) I'm not sad at all…

Cut to a forest clearing. SAN, MIR and KAG are lying on the ground. Cute KIR stands next to SAN. SHI is seated aside, crying helplessly. KIR mews.

MYO:  Hey, Shippo, I'll ask you again… Kagome and the others drank the antidote, right?

SHI:   Yeah, definitely. It was the special antidote from Jinenji. But it didn't work at all!

MYO:  Shippo, where did Master Inuyasha go?

SHI shakes his head.

MYO:  Could it be… Could it be that he's off for revenge?

Cut to INU chopping a tree angrily. He waves TET around madly.

INU:   Get out here, Shichinintai! I'm right here. If you want to fight, then come on! Jakotsu! Renkotsu! And whoever is involved!! You bastards! I'll kill you all! Stop hiding! Come out here and fight me!! Damn…!

Pan sideways to a few trees that had been chopped down by INU. INU grinds his teeth and shakes in anger.

In an underground workshop. Renkotsu [RKS] is standing over a huge pot of molten, while Jakotsu [JKS] sits a distance behind him.

JKS:   So, Brother Renkotsu… (hopeful) Inuyasha is still alive?

RKS:  Yes, you can relax.

JKS:   (glad) That's great. I was so worried about Inuyasha that during my fight with Koga earlier, I can't seem to focus…

RKS takes a sip from a gourd and spews fire into the pot, melting some metal.

RKS:  Is that why you let him off? That is not like you at all.

JKS:   I can't help it. I guess you don't know how fast he is…

RKS:  (scoffs) That's fine.

The pot of molten metal bubbles.

RKS:  Alright, it's just perfect.

RKS looks up at GKS, whose torso is hanging from the ceiling. GKS laughs.

RKS:  Just wait, Ginkotsu. I'll show you what real powers are about… That's right, I'll make you much stronger.

RKS pulls a lever which pours some of the molten metal into a mould. JKS stretches himself and yawns.

JKS:   I wonder what Inuyasha is up to now?

Daytime. In a lake by a waterfall. INU is squatting on a boulder, punching it angrily.

INU:   (thinking) Damn it! It's my fault… If only I had figured out who Renkotsu really was! Damn! Damn! Damn!

SES:   (background) What's eating you, Inuyasha?

INU:   Get lost. There's no way I'd talk to you about my feelings.

SES appears on a boulder somewhere behind INU.

SES:   So, are you saying that you've just noticed your own weakness?

INU:   Shut up.

SES:   In the end, you are but a half-demon. You can barely protect yourself. And for you to possess the Tetsusaiga, a sword which protects people, was really unsuitable since the beginning…

INU:   Don't make me kill you and take away your Tenseiga. That'd bring Kagome and the rest back to life again.

SES:   (scoffs) You think a fool like you would know how to use my Tenseiga?

INU:   We won't know until we try!!!

INU stands, spins around and throws a Wind Scar in SES's direction. SES is gone.

INU:   He's gone… (thinking) To think that… I'd have a hallucination at a time like this…

Rin, JAK and A-Un are waiting in a forest clearing.

JAK:   (loud) Let's… try… again…! (soft) Come out now.

Rin:  (glad) Lord Sesshomaru is back!

SES walks out of the forest towards them.

JAK:   Lord Sesshomaru, where in the world did you go?

SES:   It's him.

JAK:   Huh?

SES:   I saw him.

JAK:   Who is it?

SES:   That boy.

JAK:   That boy? (pondering) Who is that boy? (shocked) Oh, that boy who was with Naraku?

Rin:  You mean Kohaku?

SES walks off. JAK runs after him.

JAK:   Oh, please wait, Lord Sesshomaru!

Rin:  (thinking, worried) Lord Sesshomaru… I wonder if he's really going to kill Kohaku.

Cut to INU walking to the group.

SHI:   (whimpering) Inuyasha.

INU:   Shippo… Don't cry anymore. Men can only shed blood and not tears. (sits next to KAG)

SHI:   (sniffles) Understood…

INU holds up KAG and hugs her tightly. He is shaking.

INU:   (thinking) Kagome, forgive me. Forgive me! If it wasn't for me… You… You wouldn't be like this…

KAG:  (weakly) Inuyasha…

INU gasps.

KAG:  It…hurts…

INU:   (thinking) Kagome…!

KAG:  (opens eyes) I feel… dizzy…

INU:   She…!

MYO:  Can't be helped. I sucked up quite a lot of blood along with the poison.

A huge and fat MYO is sucking blood from an unconscious MIR.

MYO:  (sweating) It's hard work to purge the poison from their bodies.

INU:   Grandpa Myoga… You…

MIR:   (gains consciousness) Great… (rubs MYO's head) So you'll give birth to my child?

MYO:  Should've let him die…

MYO, being full of blood and unable to move, rolls aside. SHI runs to MIR.

SHI:   Miroku!

MIR:   (opens eyes) Huh? I was dreaming? (closes eyes) How disappointing…

SHI:   (glares) Dreaming of girls again?

KIR mews. SHI turns to SAN immediately.

SHI:   (glad) Are you okay, Sango?

SAN:  (weakly) Y-yeah.

KAG:  Everyone… is alive… (smiles) That's great…

MYO:  (rolling on ground) They're alive because the poison hasn't spread throughout their bodies. Any later and it'd have been too late.

SHI:   You're incredible, Grandpa Myoga. I guess you're useful at times!

MYO:  How rude! I'm always useful!

KAG:  I'm sorry, Inuyasha, for making you worry.

INU:   Stupid! Why are you apologizing…

INU face twitches. He puts down KAG and turns around.

KAG:  Inuyasha?

SHI:   (runs to look at INU's face) Huh?! What's that, Inuyasha? Didn't you just say that men only shed blood and not…

INU:   Shut up!! (thumps SHI's head)

KAG is taken aback.

MYO:  (rolls towards INU) That's rubbish, Shippo. In all the years that I've served Master Inuyasha, I haven't seen him cry even once.

SHI:   (climbs onto INU's right shoulder) I'm not lying! Look!

MYO:  (jumps onto INU's left shoulder) Gamyo! Let's see.

INU punches both of them away. He turns around and shouts, with tears in his eyes.

INU:   (fierce) I am not crying! I'm just happy that everyone is safe now!

KAG:  (thinking, smiling) Inuyasha, thank you.

[ End of ACT I: 13min 48sec ]

[ ACT II ]

KIK is walking with her Soul Collectors in a forest a distance away from Mount Hakurei. She clutches Rasetsu's hair in her hand.

KIK:   (thinking) Clean is dirty, as dirty is clean. Good is bad, as bad is good. Living is death, as death is living. Could it be the powers of this Mount Hakurei…? Why can't I sense any evil presence anywhere?

One of the Soul Collectors disintegrates and fizzes away.

KIK:   (thinking) The air is so pure, it's almost beyond belief.

KIK looks at the Soul Collectors. Another Soul Collector disintegrates.

KIK:   (thinking) It must be tough on them… Does it mean… (looks at Mount Hakurei in the distance) that I shouldn't go any closer to Mount Hakurei?

KIK stops and turns around.

KIK arrives at a village near the base of Mount Hakurei.

KIK:   (thinking) The presence of a Sacred Jewel fragment?

KIK walks towards a house. A gentle looking man is tending to the wound of an old woman. A few kids surround him.

Man: This should do it. Come back in 3 days time.

Old Woman: (bows) Thank you very much.

KIK:   (thinking) That man…! He has a Sacred Jewel fragment in his neck.

The old woman walks off.

Chiyo:  (piggybacking a baby) Take care!

Old Woman: Thank you very much, Chiyo!

Chiyo:  (runs to KIK) What a beautiful priestess!

KIK:   Who's that man?

Chiyo:  Oh, he is our physician, Mister Suikotsu.

Suikotsu abbreviated as SKS from now onwards.

KIK:   Physician?

SKS:  Chiyo, is there a patient?

KIK:   (walks to SKS) Are you Mister Suikotsu?

SKS:  Yes, and you are?

KIK:   I am Kikyo.

Children run out of the house and flop onto SKS's lap, tugging at his clothes playfully. SKS laughs.

KIK:   (thinking) Neither a demon nor human, if a Sacred Jewel fragment is inserted into an evil person, the fragment will be corrupted for sure. However, his fragment is so pure… Plus… this man is already dead.

By a river. MIR, SAN and KAG are well enough to sit up. INU is foraging in some bushes.

KAG:  I'm sorry, Inuyasha. I lost the Sacred Jewel fragments…

INU:   Don't worry about it, Kagome. We'll get them back soon. (holds up a bottle of crimson liquid) Anyway, drink this. Miroku. (throws a bamboo container to MIR) You too, Sango. (throws SAN a plastic bottle)

KAG:  (covering nose) What is this…? This…

MYO:  (jumps on INU's shoulder) Just drink it! It's Myoga's special concoction. I sucked out a lot of blood when I was purging the poison. The fastest way to replenish your health would be to drink that.

SAN:  (takes a big gulp and grimaces) Yeah, but it's really awful…

MIR:   (takes a big gulp and winces) We have to endure… Inuyasha's movements will be restricted if we don't get well soon. (drinks more)

KAG:  (thinking) That's right, we have to get better soon. (drinks, grimacing)

SHI and cute KIR run towards the group. SHI is carrying a large sack.

SHI:   Grandpa Myoga, I brought more ingredients!

MYO:  Well done!!

SHI empties out the sack of snakes, centipedes, mushrooms and hairy plants.

MYO:  The blood of this poisonous snake, together with these medicinal plants… My special concoction will be done once I mix it. Here we go!

MYO sucks sucking a snake. SHI takes the empty bottles from MIR, SAN and KAG, balancing them carefully, to MYO.

MYO:  (rolling on ground) Mix…mix…

SHI:   (holds out a bottle) Here.

MYO jumps and spits out the blood into the bottle.

SHI:   Alright, everyone!

KAG:  (weeping) Somehow…

SAN:  (weeping) I feel even worse.

MIR:   (grimacing) It'd be easier to endure without knowing that…

INU's ears twitch. A whirlwind spins towards them and stops near KAG. It turns out to be KOG.

KOG:  (worried) Kagome!

KAG:  Koga…!

KOG:  (grabs KAG's shoulders) Thank goodness, you're alright.

INU:   K-Koga…

Zoom out to reveal KOG standing on INU's back.

INU:   (scowls) Bastard.

KOG:  OH, you're still alive, dog-face!

INU:   I'll kill you!

INU stands and claws at KOG, who leaps and dodge.

INU:   (flexing claws) You bastard…!

KAG:  Why are you here, Koga?

KOG:  (lands) While I was after Naraku, I ran into a guy with a weird sword.

SAN:  Could he possibly mean…

MIR:   Jakotsu?

KOG:  (holds KAG's hands) That bastard said that Kagome had died, so…

KAG:  (grimacing) You came looking for me?

INU:   (goes between KOG and KAG and slaps KOG's hands away) Stop grabbing her hands! I'll really kill you, bastard.

KOG:  (furious) You sure have a foul mouth!

INU is taken aback.

KOG:  Kagome's hands are so icy cold now…! Her cheery blossom cheeks now look as white as a dead fish's belly! You didn't do your job to protect her, did you?!

INU is silent.

KOG:  I would never make such a mistake!

INU:   (shaking in anger) You scum…!

KOG:  (folds arms) Hmph!!

MYO:  Master Inuyasha!

SHI:   Inuyasha, you don't have to take this, rebut him!

MYO:  Yeah, yeah!

INU:   I'll never…

KOG:  Huh?!

INU:   I'll… never put Kagome through such a situation again. So you just shut up!

KAG:  (thinking, smiling) Inuyasha…

KOG glares at INU for a moment and scoffs.

Back with KIK and SKS. The children are asleep.

SKS:  These children lost their parents to famine and diseases. So, I've been taking care of them. (smiles) Everyone's sleeping well. (tucks a kid in)

KIK looks at the fragment in SKS's neck.

SKS:  What is it?

KIK:   (pauses and smiles) Nothing.

Cut to outside of house. A villager is carrying an injured villager, who is wincing in pain.

Villager 3: Help!! Mister Suikotsu, please tend to his wound!

SKS:  (walks out) What's the matter?

Villager 3: He was cut by a sickle when he fell down.

Injured villager: It hurts…! It hurts…!

Blood drips from the villagers wound. SKS looks at it and winces, closing his eyes.

KIK:   (walks out) Mister Suikotsu, is there anything I can do to help?

SKS:  Oh yes, Lady Kikyo… That's be great.

KIK:   What's the matter? You look so pale.

SKS:  No, it's nothing.

Cut to inside of house. KIK and villager 3 are holding up the injured villager, while SKS prepares some medicine.

SKS:  Thank goodness… The wound isn't as deep as I'd thought. (puts medicine on wound)

Injured villager: (winces in pain) It hurts… It hurts!

KIK:   Master Suikotsu, you're perspiring…

SKS looks at KIK. He is sweating a lot and he looks very pale.

KIK:   Let me help you…

SKS:  (stands) Excuse me. Please do so.

Cut to SKS and Chiyo feeding some birds outside the house. KIK walks towards them.

KIK:   Mister Suikotsu, they've gone back home now.

SKS:  I must have looked silly…

KIK:   It's alright.

Chiyo:  Mister Suikotsu grows faint at the sight of blood.

SKS:  Yes, even though I'm a physician. My whole body will start to shake when I see blood.

KIK:   Have you always been this village's physician?

SKS:  No, I was born in the East. I gave medical treatment to many villages, and settled down here. I like this village… It's poor, but this isolated village is peaceful and untouched by war.

SKS suddenly looks at his hand. He panics and walks towards a well.

KIK:   What's wrong? Mister Suikotsu?

SKS:  My hands… My hands…

SKS draws some water and starts washing his hands.

SKS:  (sweating) I have to wash blood away… I have to wash my hands. There's blood…

KIK:   There is no blood on your hands.

Chiyo:  Mister Suikotsu is like that at times. When it's really bad, he can wash his hands for half an hour.

SKS:  It won't wash off… It still hasn't… it won't wash off…

KIK looks at SKS in silence.

[ End of ACT II: 22min 5sec ]

[ End of episode 107: The First Time Inuyasha Shows Tears ]

[ Preview for next episode ]

By sensing the Sacred Jewel fragment, we came upon another dead man.

You're one of the Shichinintai, aren't you?!

Sorry, did you get the wrong person? My name's Suikotsu, I am a physician.

Don't act dumb! Show your true form!

Chiyo, Yuuta, run!

Huh? He actually let the children go first? Is this guy really from Shichinintai…?

Next on Inuyasha, "The Secret of the Pure Aura". A man with dual personality has awakened…!
