SPOILER Summary/Synopsis:

Inuyasha: Final Act - 14Sesshoumaru confronts Toutousai about Tenseiga, Tessaiga, and the Meidou Zangetsuha and is told that in order to pass his father, Sesshoumaru must learn to let go of Tenseiga and his hatred of Inuyasha. Naraku finds Kohaku, Rin, and Jaken and attempts to grab Kohaku’s shard but is thwarted by another trap of Kikyou’s. As they flee on Au-un, Naraku attempts to take Kohaku’s head. Naraku’s cloud form Inuyasha: Final Act - 14is seen from a distance by Inuyasha’s group, but they are delayed by Byakuya, forcing Miroku to take in more shouki from the youkai plants of Byakuya through his Kazaana ability, though Miroku no longer feels the pain.

Sango goes ahead to catch up with Kohaku as Naraku’s shouki cloud surrounds them, Naraku’s jyaki beginning to corrupt Kohaku’s Shikon no Tama shard. Sango’s arrival Inuyasha: Final Act - 14changes nothing for Naraku, who taunts the girl even as he gains some control over Kohaku. Sango attacks with her Hiraikotsu, which hits Naraku and to his surprise, forces his body to break apart. When the weapon returns, it further breaks Naraku’s body apart and he cannot pull himself together. Inuyasha and company arrive, forcing Naraku to flee. Kagome begins purifying Kohaku’s shard and Sango has a chat with her little brother. Meanwhile, Naraku has a mission for Byakuya to give Sesshoumaru a fragment of Kanna’s mirror.

Inuyasha: Final Act - 14Now that the anime is to the point where it can slow down a bit, the pacing of things is a little better especially as previous events are coming into play with the current story. Of course having flashbacks is a cost cutting measure (and it is still amusing to see old scenes from the first series since the look is so much different in the pre-digital days) but as a story device, they still work. Also, it looks as though the anime story will continue with Miroku’s shouki damage, which is good.

Because one of the biggest flaws with Inuyasha is having all the supporting characters stand around and call out, “Inuyasha” during fights, it is always nice when one of the supporting cast actually can do something productive. Sango’s having Hiraikotsu upgraded so that it can damage Naraku is one such moment.

Inuyasha: Final Act - 14More Sesshoumaru love this episode as his growth story continues. As I’ve said, I always like it when Sesshoumaru appears. I like how Toutousai is played in the moment, first with his attempting to flee his home before Sesshoumaru arrives, then his using his own power to bring home a point to Sesshoumaru, followed by he and his cow-youkai hiding in (comedic) terror behind the rock. *lol*

Not really a lot more for me to say here so I’ll move on to the next episode.
