Preview from previous episode

Just to lure Kikyo out... do you know how many villagers have been destroyed?!

If you meet that person, tell her... as long as she runs away from Naraku, the same thing will keep happening.

Kohaku! You'll be devoured by the rats!

I'm sorry, Sister... But I have to obey orders!

Next on Inuyasha, "Kohaku's Resolution and Sango's Heart".

I can't drag this any longer... I have to defeat Naraku!

InuYasha’s Jar

#159 Kohaku and Sango 琥珀と珊瑚 [こはくとさんご]


Alright! You're amazing, Kagome!

Well, my target is quite big.


Kohaku! Hand over the Zushi! Once I destroy that Zushi, the rats will disappear! Remember, Kohaku! You are, you are a demon exterminator!


Do you regret protecting Kohaku?

I don't know... However, I think I'd have regretted it more if I hadn't protect him.

Then it's okay... That's what it means to have a human heart.
