    This is episode was good to watch and I highly recommend that people watch this one. Inuyasha still struggle with the demon that he is fighting, the monk said to sango if we can kill her snake the spell will get lifted. The monk tried to kill the snake but the witch blocked his spells and sent her demon after him. Inuyasha took him away from danger, kogame went back to the past in her mind like nothing ever happend. Until kikio woke her up and her mind and said who are you? inuyasha detroyed the demon with his claw and went after the witches snake which he killed. The witches snake came back to life and went after kogame, but kogame reflected the snake back to witch, which the witch got cursed by her curse. She than took off and said you will pay for this. The spell on kogame was lifted.moreless

    When Inuyasha is forced not to draw the Tessaiga against Tsubaki's kitsune how will he defeat it, and Tsubaki? As the battle rages on poor Kagome, now stricken with poison struggles to stay in control as she slips into unconsciousness. However everything in her dream world is wrong. She feels out of place, but why? And where is Inuyasha? As Kagome wakes up, she now has some new found strength. After having to deal with Kikyou questioning her, and asking why she is there. She wakes up and tells Inuyasha to "Take down that demon" and "Not to hold back" Having down so, she decides to fight back, and deflects the shikigami right back at Tsubaki. For me the best scenes where Kikyou confronting Kagome, Inuyasha apologizing to Kagome, and Kagome deflecting the shikigami. A very touching episode, and a lot of development for Kagome bothe mentally and physically. Same goes for Inuyasha, for actually admitting that he was worried about Kagome's life being in danger.moreless

    Personally i love this episode because of Kagome being strong not only physically but mentally as well. In previous episodes she is almost forced to kill Inuyasha and that leaves her heart aching but she still is able to over come the dark priestess. As many others have said, Inuyasha was not pictured in Kagome's dream world. Also as i believe another user has commented, i too believe that Kagome feels that her dream "doesn't seem right" because Inuyasha is not pictured. After fighting off the priestess and gaining saftey for a short time, Inuyasha apoligizes about Kagome always being in danger and Kagome's response is that it is ok because she is" with him by choice". I believe that this scene is very romantic because of the sunrise in the backround and Inuyasha carring her. This episode is a real milestone in their relationship together and draws them closer together. Over all, including all the realating episodes, this is one of my favorites.

  • If Inuyasha unleashes the Tetsusaiga, Tsubaki threatens to kill Kagome. Inuyasha fights the minion with his claws while Kagome clings for dear life. Kagome loses consciousness and wakes up in her time where no one remembers Inuyasha and the gang and soonmoreless

    This episode was a very exciting, nail-biter episode, as well as a bit confusing.



    First Inuyasha is forced to deal with the fact that whether he draws the Tetsusaiga or not, Tsubaki intends to kill Kagome. This in itself is heartwrenching.



    When Kagome's dream world begins, the show pulls you away from the physical battle between Inuyasha (now having to use his claws instead of his sword) and the minion, and pulls you into a serious mental conflict within Kagome.



    I loved how this episode addressed the issue of the identity of Kagome. I admired Kagome's strength and her ability to stand up for herself and say that she is Kagome and no one else. Certainly not Kikyo (although some facts such as the way Kagome reverted Tsubaki's curse was exactly the same as when Kikyo had done it 50 years ago, back up that Kagome is merely imitation as Tsubaki accused.



    One thing that stuck me as odd is the fact that Inuyasha didn't exist in her dreamworld. The only reason I can think this should be true is because this dreamworld felt "wrong" to Kagome. Probably because Inuyasha never appeared.



    It was a very well done episode nevertheless.moreless
