Preview from previous episode

Shippo has been controlled by the parasite pupa!

He has turned cruel and is wrecking damage! What a headache!

This is so fun!

The villagers are furious! If we don't find him soon, he'll be exterminated!

Idiot! Your fox fire is just hot, and can't do damage to me!

Heheh...! I have more tricks up my sleeves!

Next on Inuyasha, "The Strongest Enemy: Parasitic Pupa Shippo".

Why is this idiot only attacking me?!

InuYasha’s Jar

#164 Shippou and Yadori Sanagi 七宝と宿り蛹 [しっぽうとやどりさなぎ]


And I'm annoyed that we still can't find any leads.

But you're annoyed almost everyday.


Don't sneak up behind me, idiot!

If you're scared, be a good boy and just faint.


I'll hit him fifty times to wake him up!

This isn't about hitting him fifty times!

Don't say something so disturbing!

Sango, these dumplings are...?

Numbing potion.


Isn't that more disturbing?


Oddities and Other Notes



Did you notice…?

…Inuyasha giving a 'I love you' handsign when he was attacked by Shippo's stink pellets?

Shippo's art lesson.
…Shippo drew a face on the belly of the Buddha statue, and a 'Hot Spring' sign on the jar that it is holding?

Freeze Frame Fun

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

[ Preview for next episode ]

Kikyo, who learned of Naraku's secret, is lured into a trap.

Since our parting in Mount Hakurei, how have you been, Kikyo? Why do you look so shocked to see me?

I actually couldn't sense him creeping up behind me... what's going on?

Naraku, don't you run!

Kikyo, Naraku, Inuyasha and us, all entangled, shall all converge here! Next on Inuyasha, "The Greatest Clue to Defeating Naraku".

Inuyasha, to defeat Naraku... there's only one way.
