  • Out of characters meaning Below Average and not as good as some of the others in the series.

    I've seen this one now three times, once in Japanese and twice in English.

    Sure, the storyline is pretty good until they get to the cave. Inuyasha totally goes nuts despite Miroku's warnings. Inuyasha wants to fight off the demon in the cave even though it would end up getting himself killed. The scary thing is that Naraku almost looks hot in these early ones (like in ep. 30, that was scary cuz he just looks so innocent when Sango sees his face). Then to really screw things up, Kikyo shows up. Then Inuyasha gets worse. He gets so irrational when Kikyo's life is in danger and he nearly gets himself killed. Of course Kagome has to hear him say that he has to protect Kikyo, but she tries to get her out of there because she knows Inuyasha will get himself killed protecting her. (It's kind of the same way it was in the 3rd movie's prologue when the soliders in the castle were prepared to duel with Inuyasha's father becuase he'll get territorial over Izayoi and Inuyasha).

    Then in the end, Kikyo gets captured by Naraku and Inuyasha just freaks out. I don't know why, but this ep. seems to rub me the wrong way.moreless
  • This was quite unexpected which makes the show very interesting to watch.

    This was quite unexpected which makes the show very interesting to watch. kykio was healing the villagers from a battle they had, and than some soldiers show up and requested that kykio come with them cause no one can heal thier lord. When kykio arrived she noticed a scent that he wasnt even alive and that she couldnt cure him. The soldier wouldnt let her leave the castle, later inuyasha and the gang show up at the mountain feeled with evil. Inuyasha and monk continued going cause the rest were sick of the evil in the air. Once they got their they fought a demon, that was the last survivor and inuyasha rush to try to kill it. Kykio stopped him by shooting an arrow, and that gave naraku his knew body and he grabbed kykio attempting to leave.moreless
  • Interesting episode...

    It's been a while since I've seen this but here goes anyway. It was an alright episode, nice to see Kikyo and Inuyasha together for a change. Don't get me wrong, I love the whole gang but a change every once in a while is refreshing.

    That miasma (Whee, I learned a new Japanese word!) is very odd, though a good device to possibly use in future episodes.

    Glad that they didn't shut Kagome, Miroku and Sango out totally from the episode, they all got quite fine roles, perfectly suited.

    So, all in all, it was just average, nothing truly terrible to happen that I dislike the episode, yet nothing spectacular so that I love it either. Its quite alright, I would definetly reccomend watching it, just for a bit of a change of pace.moreless
