Preview from previous episode

In the boundary between this world and the next... the statues at the Fire Gate started to move!

They are Gozu and Mezu!! Only the dead can go through this gate.

To pass through, you have to die in their hands.

What?! Wind Scar didn’t work?

They cannot be destroyed by a sword from this world!

Next on Inuyasha, "The Bizarre Sentries of the Gate to the Next World".

With your deaths, open the gate for me!

Huh?! They weren't just a decoration?


Oddities and Other Notes


A different version of Gozu and Mezu also make their appearance in episode 17 (Cursed Ink of Hell-Pa
A different version of Gozu and Mezu also make their appearance in episode 17 (Cursed Ink of Hell-Painter).


Did you notice…?

The 'Inu' Shrine.
…the Dry Well hut in the Higurashi Shrine has the word 'Inu' or '犬' on the signboard on top? I wonder if Inuyasha ever noticed?

Freeze Frame Fun

Things brought from modern era (or why Kagome’s bag is so big)

[ 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:  A fragment lies at the boundary between this world and the next. The only path is the gate at the Fire Country, but it is guarded. Naraku has set a trap for us!

[ ACT I ]

(in progress)

[ Preview for next episode ]

When we were in the Fire Country, demons have started rampaging again.

The demon birds seem to be under someone's control, and started attacking humans!

Are you Naraku's minion, too?! The Poison Insects around you are evidence! I don't like to hit women, but what you've done is unforgivable!

She might be related to Naraku... but she doesn't seem to be under his orders.

Next on Inuyasha, "The Wild-Tempered Bird-User, Abi-hime". What...?! She managed to dodge the Wind Scar!
