Preview from previous 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...?!

[ 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:  Naraku's partner, the Princess Abi's demon birds are attacking villages. A mysterious entity was glorified by the people. But that person's true identity is...!

[ ACT I ]

(in progress)

[ Preview for next episode ]

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?
