Everyone struggles to find the real Naraku amongst his illusions.
I’m still continuously impressed with these last couple of episodes. It really does seem like there is this desperation to things. Sango having to decide about killing Naraku and Rin to save Miroku or not killing innocent Rin, Inuyasha in demon form, and Miroku at his limit. I’m actually quite impressed with Miroku. He’s not bitching about dying or anything and he’s willing to sacrifice himself. If he was actually face to face with the real Naraku, he’s got one of the ways that seems to be able to easily kill him. If he just blew up next to him, sucking in everything it would certainly do a number on him. Now, I’m sure itâ€™s not going to come to that, but not being afraid to die like that I certainly find very interesting.
Probably one of the most interesting things in the episode was Byakuya. I always wondered what the hell he was really going to do in the final fight, as lately he hasnâ€™t done much at all. However him now having a Meido Zangetsu sword is pretty big. I can see it doing two things. Either they simply use it as a weapon against Inuyasha and others it could possibly reverse the effects of it. If the two swords effectively bring about a means to get to the underworld, Inuyasha could suck up Naraku but Byakuya could use the sword to pop him back. Just a possibility, but the sword itself is huge either way. I liked Shippo’s comment about it, how they worked so hard getting the ability and then poof, Byakuya has it too.
