  • There have been a few annoying episodes. This was the most juvenile by far. In the words of Comic Book Guy, "Worst. Episode. Ever."

    2.1
    First let me say, I'm a huge fan of the show. I love the action, suspense, and even some of the drama. I love the depth of the characters and watching how rounded and dynamic they become as they evolve. However, there are a few really annoying characters and episodes that are clearly trying to rake in the 14 and under audience. I had a difficult time watching this episode and it was one of the few I had a strong urge to skip. In fact, if the more juvenile aspects of the show annoy you (such as Shippo's and Jaken's voices), then this is one episode I would suggest skipping completely. Nothing significant happens at any point. The entire episode is unnecessary filler.



    The only slightly redeeming moment is a funny point at the end of a play where Inuyasha used the wind scar in Kagome's school's auditorium. It would have been much funnier if I had been in any mood to laugh by the end of the episode. Honestly, I wanted to throw up.



    I suppose the show is built for a younger audience than myself, but I haven't enjoyed this kind of drivel since I was seven years old. This would be my favorite animated series if it weren't for episodes like this one.moreless

    This episode was hilarious, I dont think I laughed so hard since the 3 monkey episode. Dont miss this one. Inuyasha ended up comming anyhow and when they were walking in the hall they saw a demon right behind kogame. Inuyasha destroyed the demon and said I have to look for the others, inuyasha went on slaughter the demons. When kogame did the choir concert and the play. The play in which inuyasha blew a hole in the ceiling lol that was hilarious, you got to see it. After that inuyasha said that they got to get back to the feudal era and kogame agreed.moreless
  • This episode was hilarious!

    Cultural festival goes on without hitch that is until water falls upon the dried demons. The choir scene was rather funning to watch. But my favorite had to be the play when Inuyasha busted in and accepted Hojo's challenge at face value. The fact that the Inuyasha was able to roam the school grounds without anyone noticing that he had dog-ears was so unreal that it made it hysterical. The sight of him running away from curry was funny.(It burned his tongue! Poor Inuyasha) In terms of plot devolpment there is none to speak of. That is except Naraku talking to the long-eared demon on where the last shard is. It is merely an episode of sheer hilarity and silliness of Inuyasha running around in the present era and Kagome being systematical forced into various events. This is an episode that is so desperately needed after the sorrowful passing of Kikyou, a funny one that we can just laugh at.moreless
  • Most likely one of the most hilarious episodes ever made.

    It's crazy, but this was definitely really funny. Especially when Kagome's friends kept pulling her away for another activity and didn't seem to notice Inuyasha at all.



    And yeah, it was the first time he ran away from something that I've noticed, heh. He saw spicy food and he ran off, "that food burns my tongue"... I mean, that's hilarious.



    The play was also funny when Inuyasha shows up for no apparent reason. Then he takes out his sword and I'm like "oh, my sword's bigger than yours"... the Tetsusaiga was huge compared to Hojo's sword.



    Despite the fact Inuyasha stuck out like a sore thumb, he still had a lot of funny scenes and lines. And I like seeing him when things are... awkward... cuz it's definitely outside the norm for him.moreless
  • This is so funny!

    9.3
    Anyways, I\'d say this episode was pretty funny because of the play. Inuyasha busting in because he was jealous and Kagome ended up having to write her own script, hoping that Inuyasha and Hojo follows her lead. Twisted story for this episode, but it was funny as can be.



    So overall, this is one of my favourites from Inuyasha. And I have enjoyed it a lot, and I hope you do too.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (5)

    • The episode preview was done by Inuyasha, Shippo, Miroku, Sango, and Kagome. This is the first time all five of the main characters have done the episode preview.

    • This is an episode in which a scene in played between the ending credits and the coming up next preview.

    • Before The Dried Youkai are hit by hot water and after Kagome comes through the crowd, you can see the same Mushroom demon as a costume going down the stairs.

    • All of the demons in this episode are food demons (mushroom, watermelon, catfish.) The flower-shaped demon that appears during the choir performance is probably supposed to be a burdock plant (burdock is a traditional Japanese root vegetable), The plants (and the demon) look a lot like thistle plants.

    • The song Kagome's choir sings is about the breaking of the Shikon jewel and how Kagome and Inuyasha looked for the shards. The song ends with how Naraku was looking for the last shard, to put the jewel back together.

  • QUOTES (3)

    • (Inuyasha searches for the dried-up demons)
      Inuyasha: (smells the aroma of all the food) Guess I won't be able to sniff them out. Hey, I know what that is! (sees curry) That stuff burns my tongue! (runs away in fear)

    • (Inuyasha joins the school play)
      Inuyasha: What the hell are you doing?
      Hojo: I will fight you for her.
      Inuyasha: Fine with me! (takes out Tetsusaiga)

    • Inuyasha: (after using the Wind Scar on the demon) Ha, how's that?
      Kagome: (acting as if everything is part of the play) Let's go, Pekopon.
      Inuyasha: Huh?
      Kagome: (acting) Please, take me away now, while we still have the chance. Lead me away, beyond the sky!
      Inuyasha: No, seriously. Do you have a head injury?

  • NOTES (12)

  • ALLUSIONS (2)

    • At the Festival several Anime characters appear in the halls of Kagome's school. Some characters were Luffy from "One Piece," Dorie from "Magical Doremi," Munto from "Munto," Shinichi/Jimmy Kudo and Ran Mouri/Rachel Moore from "Detective Conan" ("Case Closed"), a Sailor Scout from "Sailor Moon" as well as Lum from "Urusei Yatsura."

    • Sailor Moon

      When the five girls burst into the store to buy the food in a hurry, they had the same kind of stance the inner sailor scouts used in Sailor Moon.
