Koga searches for his ancestorâ€™s legendary weapon and Inuyasha confronts Kikyo.
Iâ€™m impressed with how fast things are moving in this series so far. In this episode again we have some pretty big events happening. I thought for sure that Kagura would be in the series a little bit longer. She seemed like such an important and vital character. No one else was effectively one of Narakuâ€™s henchmen who then turned â€œgoodâ€. She could offer some information or power that no one else had; she could perhaps se this connection with him to help to defeat him. It seemed like she had a lot to offer, plus her character itself as interesting too. She didnâ€™t care at all about her life so long as she had freedom. In that manner it was a nice way that she died, but I still figured a character like her would be along a bit more.
The big guy that fought with Sesshomaru, Gory or Mory something (I donâ€™t know, itâ€™s confusing) seems to be a big pain in the ass right now. He just goes around to these different mega powerful demons, absorbs them, and becomes super strong. Although he didnâ€™t exactly defeat Seshomaru, he managed to break his sword which I remember was kind of a pain to get. That coupled with the fact he can just disappear into plain air when he is about to be defeated kind of lends itself to being unfair. Heâ€™s definitely a bad guy that seems, right now, the most threatening. Of course Narakuâ€™s there too, but heâ€™s the one we see actually doing stuff, at least right now that is.
Finally, the bit with Kikyo looks like it will be leading somewhere too. There are quite a lot of different things going on that have yet to combine so there looks to be some promise there. Her absorbing the other personâ€™s soul was kind of odd. Iâ€™m not really sure if sheâ€™s fully Kikyo or if sheâ€™ll come to be effectively posses by the other priestess/goddess she absorbed. Not to mention she seems to be making these barriers whenever the hell she wants, drawing in Kohaku to kill him effectively. It looks like it could definitely lead to complications.
