    This is episode is incredible, you have to see this to believe it dont miss out. Inuyasha was getting beat up pretty badly, on one move the leader was going to knock his head off and inuyasha stab his hand in his neck to get the three jewel shards. The leader rushes to his sword and started killing a couple more demons to get to one thousand. His sword than turned into a demonic aura and inuyasha used his back slash wave and defeated him. Naraku started to awake and it turns out that his whole body is the mountain and inuyasha and koga got sucked into it.moreless
  • Inuyasha finally defeats Bankotsu in his 2nd biggest battle with the Band of Seven in a row, but the fight's not over

    Seeing this one, I was looking on in disbelief. It's up there with Inuyasha running away from battle in ep. 118, not that he had a choice, but it's weird. Here was even weirder with him getting beat up by Bankotsu on brute strength alone. It was ridiculous, he was losing to a human with jewel shards, he's much stronger than that, I kept saying.



    Still, the end result was the same as it should be, Inuyasha comes out victorious and he won with Bakruyuuh (the Backlash wave), pretty cool. The end left me on the edge of my seat with Inuyasha seeming to be dead inside Naraku's walls of flesh. Of course I know he isn't, but still... looks pretty beat up, but there's his battle with Jakotsu and Bankotsu to consider for those results. I didnt get it a perfect just cuz it was almost too unbelievable how hard the battle was, but Inuyasha always makes it up in the end no matter how he gets theremoreless
  • A conclusion to one of the best and longest battles in Inuyasha.

    This episode marks the end of the battle between Bankotsu and Inuyasha. I think it was better that they didn't make it a one way battle. They showed Bankotsu punching Inuyasha around, and we got to see Inuyasha claw Bankotsu as well. The tides of the battle kept switching. In this episode and the previous episode, we got to learn about Bankotsu's past and we saw how Naraku bringing Bankotsu back to life. I was on the edge of my seat. It was exciting when Bankotsu managed to achieve demonic powers by killing one thousand humans and one thousand demons. I did find it ironic that it ended up being Bankotsu's undoing. Even thought it gave his sword even more power (the jewel shards made it strong enough already), Inuyasha had no problem defeating Bankotsu with the backlash wave. Bankotsu's sword and his most of his body were destroyed by the power. I thought it was an awesome way to end one of the best battles in Inuyasha yet. It also had a great cliffhanger as well.moreless
  • Final battle between Inuyasha and Bankotsu.

    I thougt it was cool when Bankotsu was holding Inuyasha and Inuyasha put his claws in Bankotsu's neck and the jewel shards came out. It was also funny when Giten and Hakaku thought Kagome was going to accept Koga's moves on her but instead gives him Kilala and Shippo. Or maybe that was in the last episode. I'll have to watch it again on my recordable tape.
  • Bankotsu has been defeated, and Naraku is starting to reborn! The Mountain has become alive! Inuyasha's knocked out, and Naraku is far more powerful.

    Great episode, I say. It didn't have that much fighting, but still enough. So, Inuyasah and Bankotsu fight. Inuyasha finds out about the 3rd jewel shard in Bankotsu's left arm. As the fight progesses, Inuyasha takes out 3 more Jewel shards. with 5 out of 7 Jewel shards, Bankotsu greatly loses power. He then takes Banyruu and strikes Inuyasha with a great demonic force. But since it has a demonic force to it, Inuyasha has the ability to use Backlash Wave, for the 2nd time overall! Seriously. They make the greatest move and only use it 2 times out of 100 and something episodes. Anyways, Banyruu is shattered, and Bankotsu is defeated. But then cave starts to feel like the inside of a body, and starts beating. In a pit somewhere else, Sango and Miroku are dangling over the pit. Miroku then sees a series a monsters all decapitated. They investigate it, finding small little white demon-things. On another side of the cave, Koga and Kagome and Shippo are traveling inside the cave. Koga is then sucked in by the fleshy cave. When Kagome and Shippo find Sango and Miroku inside a huge ball of the white demons, they also find Inuyasha, knocked out rising by the limbs or whatever the hell those things are. So, Naraku is reborn as the mountain, it seems. With the odds against Inuyasha and Kagome. Great breaker too.moreless
