Preview from previous episode

Naraku, who is after Kikyo and Sesshomaru... the only way to defeat him is to find his heart!

Is Kagura, who has betrayed Naraku, trying to tell us where his heart is?

But we were lured into the stomach of a demon instead!

I want all of you to melt in this demon... leaving only the Sacred Jewel fragment.

Whether we'll live or die... this is the final battle! Next on Inuyasha, "The Bond Between the Two — Use the Shikon Shard!"

Kagome, please! I need your support!

Quotes

Our journey isn’t over!

The comics in Shouhen Sunday still continues!

We will firmly carry on! Don’t give up, everyone!

Please continue to support Inuyasha in the future!

Alright! Now come see us in our movies!

 

Inuyasha... Are you alright?

Yeah... But... I need your support... Just a little longer...

Last episode
This is the last episode of Inuyasha the anime. The manga is stil running. Talks are among the producers that, due to the popularity of the show, there might be a second series of the anime. But don't hold your breath. Even if the second series is given the go-ahead, it'll take a good two years for it to be finished and aired.

For those who want to continue with the animation in the manga, you can start with Vol. 36. It continues from the last battle, from chapter 357 (but read the ending of chapter 356 as well, there's some storyline about Kagura).
Ending
4年間ありがとう!
これからも?援よろしくね!!

Translation:
Thank you for these four years!
After this, please continue to support and remember us!!

Did you notice…?
