These last episodes show how the group is getting along and Sango is introduced in episode 25. She becomes the new addition to the group and see how her village is destroyed by Naraku. With Naraku being the villain, he puts the blame on Inuyasha and Sango goes after him. She finds out Naraku was the one who did the damage and killed her family. Kohaku is another character introduced and is controlled by a jewel shard that is keeping him alive. Naraku is able to control him and Sango is devastated to see it happen to her brother.
The love triangle is brought up again when Kikyo shows up and Kagome passes through her barrier. She is not the one Kikyo wants to see but Inuyasha. Inuyasha shows up and Kagome is put under a spell so she isn’t seen. Kagome starts to realize her feelings for Inuyasha. Kikyo tries to take Inuyasha to hell but it does not happen with Inuyasha hearing Kagome’s voice. Kikyo notices that Inuyasha has changed and seems to have feelings for Kagome.
The battle still continues to beat Naraku and collect the jewel shards.
In ep. 17, the gang confront a painter whose drawings come to life. He has a piece of the sacred jewel that allows his paintings to be real demons. The gang is able to defeat him and retrieve the shard.
The next two episodes Sesshomaru comes back to fight Inuyasha for his sword. They battle it out and Sesshomaru is able to wield it with a dragon’s arm that he has. Inuyasha is forced to fight with his claws and tries to regain it back. We get to see Naraku when he appears to Sesshomaru in the end. He was the one that let Sesshomaru borrow a piece of the jewel. Inuyasha sends Kagome back to her world without the fragment of the jewel so that she won’t return.
In the last two, Kagome is frustrated with Inuyasha for sending her back. She goes to school and carries on with her life but still thinks about Inuyasha. Meanwhile the guys are attacked by a demon. They learn more about Naraku and Onigumo and how it relates to Kikyo and Inuyasha’s situation. Kagome goes on a date with Hojo but he knows she’s distracted by someone else. Kagome ends up going back since Shippo had the shard and he’s in the well. They finally meet Naraku and he gets away.
For these episodes we find that Inuyasha turns into a human on the night of the full moon. Kagome finds out that human Inuyasha is way nicer than demon Inuyasha when he says that she smells good. They do defeat the spider demon and Inuyasha reverts back to his demon form.
Next we see that Kikyo’s ashes are stolen from her grave. This has Inuyasha on edge with what happened with them before. Kagome confronts him about it him not being able to see eye to eye with her but he does which catches Kagome off guard. She wonders what is wrong with her when he did that. It seems Kagome is developing feelings for Inuyasha. She is kidnapped by the witch and Inuyasha goes to rescue her. This ties to the next episode where Kikyo is revived and Inuyasha finds out what happened that day he got sealed to the tree.
As for ep. 16, they meet Miroku and Kagome is groped by him when he gets acts like he got hurt falling off Kagome’s bike. They know he is a perverted monk and don’t believe the story of his hand being cursed. We have another character added to the group.
In episode 10 Inuyasha concludes his battle with Hiten, one of the thunder brothers. Hiten is angry that his brother is killed by Kagome. It shows that Inuyasha cares for Kagome when he thinks that Kagome and Shippo died. He learns that they did not and they’re just protected by the blue light surrounding them. He feels embarrassed when he reaches out for Kagome and tries to play it off in the end.
As for the other two episodes, I felt like they were fillers since both took place in modern Japan. With Kagome having the jewels on her in the modern world, demons are awakened from the antiques that her grandpa has. One is a mask who takes the souls of others and the other is taking the souls of children. Inuyasha and Kagome are able to save her world from the demons in these two episodes.
