    This is another great episodes, things are really heating up please dont miss out. One of the band of seven released poisoness gas and that what stopped the fight. Inuyasha went after one of the band of seven, and caught up with him. Shippo came and said that kogame was in trouble, inuyasha rush to help out kogame. The band of seven member didnt like him leaving and yell out inuyasha where are you going. Mukotsu was choking kogame when sesshomaru showed up and killed him, inuyasha arrived and gave sesshomaru information about naraku and than he left. Inuyasha gave kogame and the others anidotes, hoping that they'll survive.moreless
  • The episode was rather interesting, since it did seem like Kagome wasn't going to make it...

    It was great! I really thought Kagome would not be able to get away in time and be rescued before she's married. Ooo! Inuyasha would've been quite jealous had he not been already so furious. Mukotsu's face was finally revealed, and it was quite hideous, so the animation definitely fulfilled the purpose.



    I saw Kagome reaching to stab Mukotsu, and believed she would be able to save herself. When she failed, there was some real tension as to whether she'll be allowed to live. However, Sesshoumaru calmly steps in, for his own purposes as always, but the intervention was unexpected and quite interesting, since Inuyasha almost half-managed to thank his brother.



    The episode was exciting and the plot was well thought of, but until the climax, I found that it was not too well planned out as though there was a lot of time to be filled in. Still, the last few minutes were quite worth waiting for.moreless
  • InuYasha continues his fight against Jakostu, but is cut sort by Mukostu, the third member to come in so far. Kagome and others get poisoned by Mukostu while InuYasha looks for Jakostu for a rematch. Mukostu decides to marry Kagome, but Sesshomaru comes imoreless

    Poor Kagome...Mukostu was going to perform a wedding ceromny. I wouldn't want to be in Kagome's situation. Another Band of Seven member gone. He appeared (in shadow) in the last episode, but gets killed by Sesshomaru is this one. Kyokostu, Mukostu appear in the Opening, but appear in one episode.
  • While Jakotsu occupies Inuyasha, Mukotsu attacks Kagome and the others by poisoning them as well as attempting a ridiculous wedding with Kagome (different from the manga slightly.) Sesshomaru shows up and kills Mukotsu easily unaffected by Mukotsu's poisomoreless

    Inu-Yasha and Jakotsu are battling it out when a short stocky figure appears on the ridge above them. Suddenly the area is filled with smoke and as soon as it touches Inu-Yasha his foot begins to burn. Jakotsu immediately flees as do Inu-Yasha and the others. In another part of the forest Sessho-maru, Rin, and Jaken are on the trail of Naraku, as they recall how Kohaku almost killed Rin. Shippo and Kagome head for a nearby well to refill their water supply when they come across a group of villagers that have died from the poison cloud that has appeared. Mukotsu, the poison user of the Shichinin-tai appears and captures Kagome when she falls to his poison. He manages to hold Miroku and Sango off, but Shippo escapes to go find Inu-Yasha who is off chasing Jakotsu. As this happens a peaceful Buddhist temple has a strangely dressed guest arrive. It is Renkotsu, another member of the Shichinin-tai. He immediately proceeds to kill all the monks living there. Deep in the woods Inu-Yasha is battling it out with Jakotsu. Shippo arrives and tells him Kagome is in trouble. Inu-Yasha heads back immediately, but Jakotsu tries to pursue him. Shippo crashes his flying toy horse into Jakotsu covering him in tiny screaming mushrooms. Meanwhile Mukotsu has taken Kagome into a village hut. She is semi-concious and he draps a cloth over her head and pretends that they are getting married. He dances around with her a bit and Kagome notices the shard in his throat. Miroku and Sango come crashing through the roof with Kirara, but Mukotsu makes quick work of them with his poison. Suddenly Kagome stabs him in the throat with pincers from the fire place and he bursts into tears over her betrayal. He punches her hard in the face and then starts to choke her to death when the back wall explodes revealing... Sessho-maru. Mukotsu tries to fight off Sessho-maru but his poisons are completely useless on the powerful demon. Sessho-maru kills him without batting an eye just as Inu-Yasha arrives. Unnoticed one of Naraku's wasps carries off Mukotsu's Shikon shard. Back at the temple Jakotsu and Renkotsu meet up to discuss what has happened and if either one of them has actually met Naraku. Renkotsu points out that only "elder brother Bankotsu" has met him. Jakotsu comments that only 4 of the Shichinin-tai are alive still and Renkotsu corrects him telling him there are still five (Jakotsu starts counting on his fingers to be sure). Deep in the forest the next killer from the Shichinin-tai arrives... Ginkotsu the machine man.moreless
