Everyone heads inside of Narakuâ€™s body to find the completed Shikon Jewel.
I really am quite impressed with this episode. This really does seem like the absolute final fight they are in now, and it should because at the moment they seemed pretty screwed. They are inside of Narkauâ€™s body where he can control pretty much everything, they canâ€™t do any real damage e to him even if they wanted to because they donâ€™t want to hurt Rin, and Naraku has the super mega ultra powerful Jewel theyâ€™ve spent hundreds of episodes trying to stop him from having. It certainly doesnâ€™t look too good for them, which is why itâ€™s good. The desperation they are in makes it far more interesting. I was actually really curious as to what the hell they were going to do and was quite drawn into the show now, so Iâ€™m hoping they donâ€™t let go of that feeling in the rest of the episodes for the final fight, because so far Iâ€™m impressed.
It really seems that right now their only option would to first kill Magahatsuhi. Theyâ€™ve had this thing all along where Naraku canâ€™t really be defeated by brute force; they need some kind of spiritual power to do it. With Kikyou gone, that falls on Kagome and until Magahatsuhi is dead, that canâ€™t really happen. So pretty much they canâ€™t really do anything other than wait around for Sesshomaru to stop standing around and do something. Once Sesshomaru kills Magahatsuhi, then maybe they stand a chance of defeating Naraku, but until them they are kind of relying on him, which is interesting. At least they donâ€™t have Sesshomaru useless sin the final fight.
