Preview from previous episode

When I met Kikyo again, her body is not fully healed yet. Don't force yourself, just wait here!

Then... give this arrow to Kagome. Whether she make good use of this, it's up to her.

This arrow that Kikyo gave me... why? Princess Abi and her mother, who are in opposition with Naraku, finally opened the way to the boundary between this world and the next. Next on Inuyasha, "The Demon that Links to the Next World".

Break the barrier and thwart Naraku's trap...!

InuYasha’s Jar

#154 Tekkei 鉄鶏 [てっけい]


You get it, don't you? Naraku is after your life. Kikyo... at that time... That time when you were attacked on Mount Hakurei... I wasn't able to protect you! And Naraku took your life for the second time... I don't even want to think about it...!

I'm a burden... is that what you are saying?

I'm begging you!


Princess Abi's Mother That's right. Naraku is inside my stomach.

So-so... So that means she ate him?

She may get indigestion...

(in progress)

[ Preview for next episode ]

Chasing Naraku and crossing the poison river, we finally arrived in the boundary between this world and the next.

Suddenly light spears flew at us!

The spears come from the grave of my father!

Housenki How dare you bandits come for the Jewel fragment!

This skull is Housenki!

Housenki If you are all here, it's the choice of the Jewel fragment.

Next on Inuyasha, "The Demon who Guards the Sacred Jewel Fragment".

Housenki No matter who you are! I won't hand over the fragment!
