Preview from previous episode

Everytime you cut me, miasma will gush out. The miasma is poisonous enough to kill everyone here.

Why do you think I care about their lives?

I knew it...!

The miasma is approaching us!

Housenki Cut through me!


Housenki If you want to cut through Naraku's barrier, you have to cut through me!

Next on Inuyasha, "Pierce Through Naraku: Diamond Spear Blast".

No matter what, I'll end things today!

InuYasha’s Jar

#157 Naraku 奈落 [ならく]


So, you don't care if my miasma ends up killing everyone. Just what I'd expect from you, a flawless demon. Your heart is made differently.

That has nothing to do with it.


Housenki Inuyasha. With that half-demon heart of yours, you may inherit Diamond Spear Blast, my demon power!

Inuyasha. With that half-demon heart of yours, you may inherit Diamond Spear Blast, my demon power!

[ Preview for next episode ]

Hakudoshi released a stampede of zushi rats. And Kohaku appears near him!

Let the rats spread and attack villages. This country is now facing the fate of being eaten up.

Unexpectedly, the rats are gathering!

This is mayose, a method of gathering demons and destroying them all at once. It can’t be done without strong holy powers.
