Episode Summary for Episode 127 - Don't Boil! The Horror Dried Youkai. Written by inuyashaworld.com visitor
Inuyasha and Kagome are standing by the well. Kagome asked if its really ok if she can go back to her own era. Inu said that there's nothing for her to do here. so Kagome jumps in and Inu watched her go down the well. then Inu steches.

Next we find Kagome comming out of the shrine and Souta sees her and welcomes her back.

Kagomes parents saying that she was gone a long time and that her Gramps was saying that he was running out of excuses for her. Then Kagome rembered that she brought a present. She took it out of the thing she had around her neck. Kagome gave a small bag to her mom and said that it was himono. Gramps said the he was really looking foward to trying it.

Kagome jumps onto her bed and has a flash back. Kagome and Inu were having a conversation saying something like if Inu would go somewhere that Kagome will be very annoyed. (end of flashback) Kagome thinks that maybe she's a bit tired of this.

We now see Kagome stuffing her face with food and her family was just staring at her. Souta askes he she is eating a bit too much. Kagome reply was that "tomorrow's going to be the first time in a long while that she'll be going to school. SHe needed to replenish her energy. It looks like she'll be staying here for a while. I'm going to switch modes and study really hard. Cause she need to catch up her classes." And countes eating. Then askes for secondes! She asked whats wrong with Gramps and Souta and Souta replied nothen.

The next clip is Kagome in the bath tub thinking that all she needs now is a good nights sleep and forget about the Sengoku Jidai. Now in bed her thoughts still contune "After all I'm returning to whom I should be: a female junior high school student.

We now find Kagome looking at her school wondering what has ahppened to it. Kagome's friends see Kagome and start surrounding her. Kagome's friends were like I'm really glad that she's back. Kagome askes what is happening.Kagome's friend Eri said that there's gonna be a culture festival. Kagome saked what about the classes. Kagome's other friend said that all the classes had been pushed back for the festival. And Kagomes all like "why did I come back at a time when classes don't even matter." Then Kagomes like I'm going home. And "There's no meaning to whether I'm here or in the other world anyway." Kagome's friends said that they didn't like Kagome being all glumy and that the only way to cheer her up is to sing a song and that Kamgome should help with the festival cause they need help.

In one of the classrooms Kagome and her friends are talking about the culture festival. They said that they needed kagome with the cooking, sing in the choir and be the reserve for the play. Kagome was overwelmed that all of her friends wanted her to help with each one of them. Yuka said that it will only be for three days of preparation so doing three days should be easy. Kagome gave up.

The first thing on the to do list was to sing in the choir. We see Ayum telling the choir to sing scales. Then she tells Kagome to sing louder, to sing with her heart.

The seconed thing to do is cooking. we see Kagome peeling potatoes while Yuka is looking for an exotic dish. Kagome while still peeling potatoes says that she's good at outdoor cooking. Yuka asked if she means by barbecueing. Kagome says as in Grilled river fish or sansai over a wood fire.But Yuka says for her to keep quiet and keep on working.

The last object on the list in acting for the play. Kagome's other friend Eri is the derector of this play. We see Kagome saying a line from the script but Eri sayes it's all wrong. She told kagome to spread her arms into the air. So kagome did this while sayinh her ling and the other actor she's practiseing with looks kinda scarred by Kagome.

The next sceen is back at Kagome's house watching Souta and Grandpa eating the present she had sent them.Kagome walks through the door looking extreamly tired. Souta askes what happened to all the energy she supposedly replenished. Her response was that she used it all up in one day. Then Souta askes that if the classes were that hard. Kagome says that classes would've been better. Grandpa changes the conversation and says that the himono is pretty good and that is goes good with sake (wine).

And now we go to the other era. The group is talking to Kaede about the last ep. Then we see Kagome holding a Kid named Akago and they shouled that her eyes are under some sort of spell. (end of flashback) Kaede remarks that that must mean that Naraku must not know the whereabouts of all the remaining Shikon shards. Miroku says than that must mean there are some shards out there he cannot find on his own. Shippo askes what kind of shards would those be. And Miroku answers that they are probably in locations that are quite difficult to ascertain. Inu remarks it just means that Naraku is also having a hard time.

The sceen changes. We are at some swamp and a person comes out of the water. A person with long ears named Mimisenri heard that Naraku was comming to see him. Naraku comments that Mimisenri has long ears that can hear many things in this world. Mimisenri askes if Naraku would want his ears with his body. Discusted Naraku says that he need him to find the whereabouts of the last Shikon shards are. Mimisenri said that he will listen than.

Back with the gang now standing by a fence. They're still discussing about the Shikon Shards. They're remarking where the last shards they know are. The first ones Naraku stoll from them. the second ones are in Koga's legs and the third one is in Kohaku's back maintaining his life. Sango said if Naraku completes that Shikon No Tama, it will mean Kohaku's death. Inu told Sango not to worry, They won't let him do that no matter what. He also said that they will be the ones who will find the remaining shards first. Then Miroku walkes over to where Songo and Inu are standing (well Inu he's sitting). Miroku told Inu to please be more concerned for Kagome and to make sure that she never falls into the hands of Naraku again. Inu snaps back Keh, I know that. Then he askes Shippo what is he eating all by him self. Shippo shows Inu the stuff he was eating. It was himono the yamabushi and a few villagers who where rescued before has given it to them as a sign of their gratitude. Sango takes the himono away from Shippo. She said no matter how many times we exterminators tell them to stop, they never do. Shippo askes what are u talking about. "No kirara, these are youkai (demon). Miroku neels down and askes is it safe to eat. "Yeah it is, but if u put it in water and heat it..." Miroku cuts her off in other words, if you boil it...
"A new shironuudou is born." Inu jumps off the fence "Who cares about himono anyways. To any case, looking for the Shikon shards will lead to everything else." "They started everything, after all." said Miroku. Inu said "no matter where Naraku may be. he will definitenly appear at the remaining shards.

Back to Kagome's era. It's the choir again practiseing thier scales when a girl came to a door. The girl was sorry but she caught a cold. Ayumi said it was no problem. And she put Kagome in her solo alto part.

Kagome is bummed out while walking to her stage practice. When she walks in she found out Maki (the lead actress) had injured her foot. Eri was wating for Maki's results and to find out that she can't move it for a while. Eri was thinking for a moment and said that now Kagome has a part in the play. She will play Escargot Pudding! So far both of her friends want her to be in big parts in this festival.

Now cooking. Kagome is mixing some batter up while Yuka is still looking for an exocit dish. Kagome is telling Yuka about her day but Yuka wasn't paying attation. Yuka couldn't find any good recpies in the cook book so she asked if Kagome will find her a dish not known to anyone yet. Kagome tried to talk her way out of it but Yuka said that she's counting on her.

Kagome is on the roof yelling "Don't tell me I'm counting on you!" Then we hear Hojo commenting on Kagome's yelling thinking she's practicing for the play. He said that she was multitasking. So Kagome snaps at him "I'm not, I'm being forced to." Kagome tells Hojo about her problems and Hojo said that it's cause she hasn't been here for a while and that they just want her to be a big part of the festival.

We find Kagome going into her home and taking some of the himono she gave her Grandpa.

The next day Kagome is trying her best in every activty she in. It looks like she's enjoying choir, doing an excellent job on her acting and gave Yuka the himono she took from her grandpa for the exocit dish.

Now in fudel era we see Inu getting ready to jump into the well. Inu is going to get Kagome so they can start looking for the Shikon shards soon. Inu says to Shippo that Kagome stays too long when they leave her alone. Just as Inu Jumps into the well Shippo yell for him to ask her if she can bring some more ninja food. But Inu didn't hear him.

Back to Kagome's era her Grandpa is eating the last of the himono. He gave one to the cat and took a bite out of an other. "This himono tates really good, but it's too bad that it'a a bit tough, maybe I should boil it." Grandpa turns on a gas range and puts the rest of the himono in a boiling pot of water. While Grandpa is reading a magazine the effect of the himono takes place. we see a huge bubble with a demon type face on it in the backround. It popped and Grandps turned around to see anything but saw nothen so he went back to the magizine. Inu is walking down the hallway and see the demon now bigger behind Grandpa's back. Grandpa sees Inu and says "Hey, long time no see." still not knowing whats happening behind him so Inu uses Iron Reverto distory it. Inu sudgest that it might have been the shironyuudou Sango was talikng about. Inu askes where is the rest and Grandps told him that it was the last one, he ate the rest. "Then never mind." Kagome's mom sees Inu as well and says hello. Souta askes "Inu, no nii-chan (my geuss "dog-eared brother") did you come to have fun?" Inu response "Have fun? No way!" Then Kagome's mom asked if he will be having dinner with them and to please wait a bit. He said he'll stay.

Kagome comes into the house surprised to finding Inu playing with the cat.Inu said that hey're heading back after they eat dinner. Once again Kagome is surprised said that he never said anything about being a back in a hurry. Inu tells her to be Quiet and that they can't find the shards without her. She askes "is that all?" "What do you mean "Is that all?" Kagome turnes away saying "Well, not like I care." Kagome thinks that she is back to her old self again while Inu turns away then confesses that he wanted to see her and askes if there's a problem with that. And in Souta's thoughts "Wow, you're selfish. nii-chan. Kagome tells Inu that she can't come back there right now. Inu askes if she had another "test" things again. "Nope, a culure festival" Souta askes what is Kagome doing in the festival. "A little bit of here and there, singing in the choir, cooking and stage-acting." Kagome's Grandpa askes if family members attend as well. "Yeah, that shouldn't be a problem." Then Kagome's askes why don't they all go. "Oh, you don't have to do that..." Kagome's Grandpa inturpts her "No, I have to see my granddaughter in the limelight!" Inu askes "Can I come too..." "NO!!!" "Why not?" Kagome tried to reason with him "Because... it would cause a major uproar if perple found out who you were!" So Inu turns away sulking.

Kagome is leaving her house the next morning to make preparations for the fesival. Inu watches her run down the steps while you hear in the backround Kagome's family getting ready to leave for the festival.

We come back to the fudel era with Shippo anf Kirara complaining that Inu and Kagome hasn't come back for a while. Shippo takes out another himono out of his vest and takes a bite. "Gah, it's tough." "Kitsunebi!" (fox fire) "What a tasty smell!" then it trensforms into a demon ready to attack Shippo and Kirara. Luckly Sango and Miroku appear and Sango uses her Hiraikotsu to get rid of the demon for Shippo and Kirara. Miroku askes if there are and youkai in these opoulated parts. Sango told Miroku "That youkai was the resurracted himono of a kurotennudake mushroom." Sango asked Shippo to give her the rest of the himono. after Shippo was done Sango asked if thats it. Shippo said that Kagome took the rest to her own time. "Kagome did?" "To her family?" said Miroku and Sango looking down the well. Miroku said "Well, since Inu is over there." "You're right... it'll be fine as long as Inu is over there." said Sango. Shippo noted "But I heard that Inu can't really do as he wants in Kagome's country." "sigh"

We see people at Kagomes school doing some last minuet stuff before it opens. People are wearing costumes as demons and other caracters of the play. In the first home ec. class Yuka is telling evertone to bring the baked goods on the tables. In the seconed home ec. class someone has put the himono Kagome gave Yuka into boiling water and the package beside the pot so the splashes of the water on onto the other himono and brought them to life.

127 - Don't Boil It!
The Terrifying Himono Youkai
Kagome and Inuyasha are at the well and Kagome asks Inuyasha if it's really ok for her to go back. He tells her it is because even if she stayed, there's nothing for her to do. She smiles, turns, around, and disappears into the well. Inuyasha looks into the well after her, then stretches and yawns.
Kagome slides open the door of the shrine that houses the secret well, gets out, and then slides it closed behind her to be greeted by a shout of surprise from Souta. She's finally home.

Kagome's mother seems surprised and happy to see her and her grandfather comments that she was gone for quite some time. It was hard for him to come up with excuses for school. Kagome brought back a gift - an unusual himono. Grandpa is looking forward to trying them. Kagome goes up to her room to rest for a bit. She flops onto her bed. *Flashback to the last episode when Inuyasha was telling her he wouldn't go* Maybe I'm a bit tired of this...

Souta and Grandpa looked absolutely shocked. As does Kagome's mother. Kagome is wolfing down dinner. Food is disappearing at an amazing rate. Souta asks her if she isn't eating too much. Between bites, Kagome manages to tell him that tomorrow will be the first time she has gone to school in a while so she needs to replenish her energy. Since she's going to be staying for a while, she needs to study real hard because she needs to catch up in her classes. She asks for seconds and then asks grandpa and Souta what's wrong as they look at her funny. "Nothing," Souta replies innocently.

While taking a bath, Kagome decides to get a good night's sleep and forget all about the Sengoku Jidai.

She lies down in bed and goes to sleep.

The next day when she arrives at school, she sees that it's all dressed up. Her friends, Ayumi, Eri, and Yuka greet her. They inform her that there's a culture festival which is why the school is all dressed up. Kagome asks about classes and her friends tell her that they've been pushed back for preparations. Kagome is horrified at the thought that she came back just when classes didn't even matter. "I'm going home," she says and begins to leave. Her friends stop her and decide that Kagome should participate in the festival as well.

As Kagome sits at her desk her friends tell her that she's going to be like the reserve person in case anything happens. Kagome agrees. She needs to sing in the choir, announce dishes when they're cooked, and be on stage. Play the heroine's friend, Brilliant! She asks which of the three she should do and is answered by "all of them." She agrees.

Kagome is singing in the choir. Suddenly, her friend looks at Kagome and tells her to sing louder. To sing from the heart.

Kagome is peeling potatoes as everyone around her cooks. Her friend is saying how she wants an exotic dish. Kagome tells her that she's good at outdooes cooking. "As in barbecue?" "Grilling fish over a wood fire" Kagome responds. "Or grilled sansai over a wood fire" Her friend tells her to be quiet and keep working.

Kagome is in the play. Her friend tells her to recite her lines, so Kagome does (ironically enough she recites them to Houjo) In the middle of her line, her friend interrupts her and tells her she's doing it wrong. "You have to sort of spread your arms out like this and present yourself better" Kagome becomes a drama queen.

Grandpa is eating some of the himono Kagome brought. He tells Souta that it's pretty good so Souta wants some too. Suddenly, Kagome comes home, sounding thoroughly drained. She drags herself into the room so Souta asks her what happened to all the energy she supposedly had. She used it all up. Grandpa tells her that the himono she brought are pretty good and that they go well with sake. Kagome offers a weak smile.

Sunset in the sengoku jidai. Kaede is surprised that Naraku tried to use Kagome's eyes. *Flashback to Kagome holding Akago* Kaede says that this must mean that Naraku knows the whereabouts of the remaining shards. Miroku confirms this and adds that since he went to the trouble of kidnapping Kagome, he must have trouble finding some of the remaining shards. Inuyasha is comforted by the fact that Naraku is also having a difficult time.

Night at some swamp. Suddenly the waters begin to bubble and an old man with grossly huge ears comes out of the water. "So you came, Naraku," he says. "Oh? That will save me the time of explaining myself, then." Naraku's voice comes from a cloud of jaki surrounded by Saimyousho that lands near the large-eared man. Naraku pieces himself together (since that's how he does it now, pieces of him come together to form a whole...it's kind of cool, actually) and says, "Mimisenri, I heard that you possess ears that are capable of hearing many things in this world." Mimisenri confirms what Naraku said and adds that he's heard rumors about him, too. Then he asks him if Naraku intends to absorb his ears into his body as well. "Do not worry so," Naraku assures him. "I have no interest in your filthy little body." How nice of Naraku. In that case, why did he come? Naraku needs one more shard but its whereabouts have escaped Naralu's knowledge. Mimisenri will listen well, then.

Inuyasha is sitting on a fence while Sango leans against it and Shippo and Kirara play at the base (it's still night). Miroku stands at the side and talks about how their shards have fallen into the hands of Naraku. There are still two on Kouga's legs and one in Kohaku. If Naraku completes the shikon no tama, then Kohaku dies. Inuyasha assures her that that won't happen since they will be the ones to find the remaining shards first. Miroku asks Inuyasha to be more careful of Kagome and make sure she never falls into the hands of Naraku again. "Feh! I know that!" he seems slightly embarassed. Then munching is heard from Shippo and Inuyasha asks about it. Shippo tells him that they're the himono from the villagers and the yamabushi. Sango grabs them from Shippo and when Kirara begins to paw at one, Sango tells her to stop. She tells them that the himono are actually a type of fungal youkai called Shironyuudou. Miroku asks if it's safe to eat them and Sango assures him that it is but if you boil it then a new Shironyuudou is born. It's something she prefers people toss out. Shippo looks sad because it was so good. Inuyasha says that he doesn't care about himono. They need to go look for shikon shards. Miroku agrees. The shards started everything after all. "No matter where Naraku may be, he will definitely appear at the remaining shards." Inuyasha says, looking up at the dark sky.

Kagome's school. Kagome's friend (Ayumi) is leading the choir. Suddenly the door slides open to reveal a girl with a mask over her face. She apologizes to Ayumi for catching a cold. Ayumi assures her that it's not her fault and then looks at Kagome. "Please sing her solo alto part." "WHAT?! What solor?!" Ayumi smiles sweetly as Kagome looks at her horrified.

Kagome walks down the hall, looking like a truck just hit her. She walks onto the stage to see a girl holding her ankle. The girl sprained her ankle and won't be able to play the lead part of Escargot Pudding. It's up to Kagome now - she is no longer "Brilliant" but is now "Escargot Pudding"

As Kagome is baking some sort of cake, she's venting to her friend about how unfair the other two are being in making her sing the solo and play the lead role. Her friend closes her cookbook and announces that she can't find any good recipes. She asks if Kagome knows any recipes that "pack a whallop" When Kagome replies "no" then her friend asks her to go find one. "I'm counting on you."

Kagome is standing outside on the roof of the school building. "DON'T TELL ME 'I'M COUNTING ON YOU'!!!" she screams out at the top of her lungs as the "camera" zooms out finally settling on a view of Japan from space as Kagome's scream is still heard (and echoing). Kagome is holding the barrier around the roof, breathing heavily. "Wow, so you really did get better, Higurashi" a voice sounds behind her. It's Houjou-kun! They talk a little bit about the festival and then Houjou starts talking about how now that they're playing the lead roles together, they'll be able to interact more and maybe have a few practices outside...he looks to his right to find that he's alone.

Kagome opens the door to her home and walks in. Then she opens the cupboard and takes out some of the himono she had given to her granfather.

Choir practice.

"This Escargot Pudding will neither run nor hide"

Kagome sets the himono down on the counter and tells her friend that it's something that packs a wallop and makes a big impression yet is not known to anyone.

Inuyasha is standing with one foot in the well talking to Shippo. He's going to get Kagome because they need to start looking for the shikon shards. As Inuyasha disappears into the well, Shippo yells after him to tell Kagome to bring back some ninja food. But Inuyasha is already gone.

Grandpa is eating more of the himono and Buyo begs for some, too. Grandpa is talking to himself that the himono is really good but it's a little tough so maybe if he boils it... He turns on the gas and drops the himono into a pot of water. As he's sitting at the table reading a magazine of some sorts (with "Sun" on the cover) the himono begins to boil. Huge bubbles form and then pop. The bubbles have a REALLY creepy face on them with red eyes and spiky teeth. Grandpa looks at the pot but doesn't seen anything so he goes back to reading the magazine. Behind him a huge bubble forms. But it's not a bubble. It's a new himono with red eyes and spiky teeth. *commercials*

The himono opens its mouth to eat grandpa (who still doesn't know it's behind him) when Inuyasha casually strolls by. He goes into the kitchen and "WAAH!" Grandpa greets Inuyasha as the himono hovers overhead and blinks, its mouth still wide open. "What the hell are you doing!" yells Inuyasha and rushes forward. "Sankontessou!" He destroys the himono. Grandpa is confused. Inuyasha recognizes it as the Shironyuudou Sango was talking about and asks grandpa where the rest is. "The rest?" "I'm asking you where the rest of the himono is!" Grandpa tells him that the one in the pot is the last. Inuyasha relaxes. "The never mind." Kagome's mother and Souta welcome Inuyasha. Souta asks him if he came to have fun. "No way!" Kagome's mother assumes Inuyasha will be having dinner with them.

Kagome comes home. Inuyasha is playing with Buyo. She's surprised to see Inuyasha who informs her that after dinner they're going back to the Sengoku Jidai. He reminds her that they can't find any shikon shards without her. "Is that all?" Kagome replies. She then glares at Inuyasha. "I wanted to see you..." Inuyasha says, arms crossed and back hunched. "Is there a problem with that?" Kagome apologizes that she can't go back right now because she has a culture festival she has to be at. Grandpa rushes in and asks if family members can attend the festival as well. Kagome's mother says that they should all go. "Oh, I can go, too--" "NO!" Kagome cuts Inuyasha off. "Why not?!" Because if people found out he was a demon... "Feh!"

Kagome leaves for school the following morning as Inuyasha lounges on the roof. Everyone inside is getting ready for the occassion.

Shippo and Kirara are sitting at the edge of the well, waiting for Kagome and Inuyasha to come back. Shippo takes a himono out of his vest and eats it. It's tough so he takes his fox fire and tries to soften it. Suddenly, the himono explodes and turns into the huge mushroom thing. Sango comes in and flings her Hirakotsu at it, killing it. Miroku is surprised to see a youkai in these populated parts and Sango informs him that it was a youkai born from a himono. She extends her hand towards Shippo, asking for the rest of the himono. Shippo takes a bunch out of his pockets and tells Sango that Kagome took the rest. The gang decides that it should be fine as long as Inuyasha is over there.

At the culture festival, everyone is running around in costumes, preparing for the big day. In the home ec room, the himono are lying by pots of boiling water. Some of the water splashes onto the himono. The room is filled with purple smoke and himono are everywhere. They leave the room leaving a huge mess behind.

Sango grabs them from Shippo and when Kirara begins to paw at one, Sango tells her to stop. She tells them that the himono are actually a type of fungal youkai called Shironyuudou. Miroku asks if it's safe to eat them and Sango assures him that it is but if you boil it then a new Shironyuudou is born. It's something she prefers people toss out. Shippo looks sad because it was so good. Inuyasha says that he doesn't care about himono. They need to go look for shikon shards. Miroku agrees. The shards started everything after all. "No matter where Naraku may be, he will definitely appear at the remaining shards." Inuyasha says, looking up at the dark sky.

Kagome's school. Kagome's friend (Ayumi) is leading the choir. Suddenly the door slides open to reveal a girl with a mask over her face. She apologizes to Ayumi for catching a cold. Ayumi assures her that it's not her fault and then looks at Kagome. "Please sing her solo alto part." "WHAT?! What solor?!" Ayumi smiles sweetly as Kagome looks at her horrified.

Kagome walks down the hall, looking like a truck just hit her. She walks onto the stage to see a girl holding her ankle. The girl sprained her ankle and won't be able to play the lead part of Escargot Pudding. It's up to Kagome now - she is no longer "Brilliant" but is now "Escargot Pudding"

As Kagome is baking some sort of cake, she's venting to her friend about how unfair the other two are being in making her sing the solo and play the lead role. Her friend closes her cookbook and announces that she can't find any good recipes. She asks if Kagome knows any recipes that "pack a whallop" When Kagome replies "no" then her friend asks her to go find one. "I'm counting on you."

Kagome is standing outside on the roof of the school building. "DON'T TELL ME 'I'M COUNTING ON YOU'!!!" she screams out at the top of her lungs as the "camera" zooms out finally settling on a view of Japan from space as Kagome's scream is still heard (and echoing). Kagome is holding the barrier around the roof, breathing heavily. "Wow, so you really did get better, Higurashi" a voice sounds behind her. It's Houjou-kun! They talk a little bit about the festival and then Houjou starts talking about how now that they're playing the lead roles together, they'll be able to interact more and maybe have a few practices outside...he looks to his right to find that he's alone.

Kagome opens the door to her home and walks in. Then she opens the cupboard and takes out some of the himono she had given to her granfather.

Choir practice.

"This Escargot Pudding will neither run nor hide"

Kagome sets the himono down on the counter and tells her friend that it's something that packs a wallop and makes a big impression yet is not known to anyone.

Inuyasha is standing with one foot in the well talking to Shippo. He's going to get Kagome because they need to start looking for the shikon shards. As Inuyasha disappears into the well, Shippo yells after him to tell Kagome to bring back some ninja food. But Inuyasha is already gone.

Grandpa is eating more of the himono and Buyo begs for some, too. Grandpa is talking to himself that the himono is really good but it's a little tough so maybe if he boils it... He turns on the gas and drops the himono into a pot of water. As he's sitting at the table reading a magazine of some sorts (with "Sun" on the cover) the himono begins to boil. Huge bubbles form and then pop. The bubbles have a REALLY creepy face on them with red eyes and spiky teeth. Grandpa looks at the pot but doesn't seen anything so he goes back to reading the magazine. Behind him a huge bubble forms. But it's not a bubble. It's a new himono with red eyes and spiky teeth. *commercials*

The himono opens its mouth to eat grandpa (who still doesn't know it's behind him) when Inuyasha casually strolls by. He goes into the kitchen and "WAAH!" Grandpa greets Inuyasha as the himono hovers overhead and blinks, its mouth still wide open. "What the hell are you doing!" yells Inuyasha and rushes forward. "Sankontessou!" He destroys the himono. Grandpa is confused. Inuyasha recognizes it as the Shironyuudou Sango was talking about and asks grandpa where the rest is. "The rest?" "I'm asking you where the rest of the himono is!" Grandpa tells him that the one in the pot is the last. Inuyasha relaxes. "The never mind." Kagome's mother and Souta welcome Inuyasha. Souta asks him if he came to have fun. "No way!" Kagome's mother assumes Inuyasha will be having dinner with them.

Kagome comes home. Inuyasha is playing with Buyo. She's surprised to see Inuyasha who informs her that after dinner they're going back to the Sengoku Jidai. He reminds her that they can't find any shikon shards without her. "Is that all?" Kagome replies. She then glares at Inuyasha. "I wanted to see you..." Inuyasha says, arms crossed and back hunched. "Is there a problem with that?" Kagome apologizes that she can't go back right now because she has a culture festival she has to be at. Grandpa rushes in and asks if family members can attend the festival as well. Kagome's mother says that they should all go. "Oh, I can go, too--" "NO!" Kagome cuts Inuyasha off. "Why not?!" Because if people found out he was a demon... "Feh!"

Kagome leaves for school the following morning as Inuyasha lounges on the roof. Everyone inside is getting ready for the occassion.

Shippo and Kirara are sitting at the edge of the well, waiting for Kagome and Inuyasha to come back. Shippo takes a himono out of his vest and eats it. It's tough so he takes his fox fire and tries to soften it. Suddenly, the himono explodes and turns into the huge mushroom thing. Sango comes in and flings her Hirakotsu at it, killing it. Miroku is surprised to see a youkai in these populated parts and Sango informs him that it was a youkai born from a himono. She extends her hand towards Shippo, asking for the rest of the himono. Shippo takes a bunch out of his pockets and tells Sango that Kagome took the rest. The gang decides that it should be fine as long as Inuyasha is over there.

At the culture festival, everyone is running around in costumes, preparing for the big day. In the home ec room, the himono are lying by pots of boiling water. Some of the water splashes onto the himono. The room is filled with purple smoke and himono are everywhere. They leave the room leaving a huge mess behind.

SPOILER EP 127
its daytime, kagome and inu yasha are standing by the well.
kaogme asks if if its really ok if she leaves now. inu
repsonds, well there is nothing for u to do here. kagome
smiles and says, no hard feelings then? she then jumps
into the well, inu yasha moves closer to the well and looks
inside. u can tell that he misses her already. he lifts
his head, streches his arms and gives out a long yawn. back
in kagomes time, she has exited the building where the well
was and slides the doors closed. souta is playing with his
soccer bal and notices her come out. he is very happy to
see her again. kagome runs over to him, smiles, waves, and
says she's home. there is an overview of her house and
then a closeup of her mother inside happily welcoming her
home. grandpa does the same and comments that she has been
gone for a long time this time around.(the last time she
was home was in ep 90 X_X) he then begins to sound whiny
and says, it was hard to make up excuse for ur absense all
this time. her mah is kneeling beside the table. buyo
(their cat) is sitting next to the table across from the
mother and grandpa is sitting down to the left of them. her
mom happily says that she is glad kagome is safe. grandpa
sounds concerned when he asks her, what's wrong? are u
tired? kagome responds, .. not exactly... but.... oh
kagome remembers something. she is carrying something
wrapped in a scarf around her neck. she takes it out (its
wrapped in a brown clothe) and hands it to her mother.
kagome explains that this is a present, and that its an
unusual type of himono (dried food, usually involving
seafood). her mom put it on the table and grandpa becomes
very excited about trying it. kagome smiles and tells them
tht she is going to rest a bit, she then leaves. she
collapses onto her bed adn opens her eyes slightly she
begins to think about her most recent conversatio with inu
yasha *flashback of inu yasha telling her that he wont go
search for kikyou anymore. kagome gets all up in his face
and calls him a liar and if he does she will be very
annoyed and tell inu to expect that from her.* back with
kagome on her bed she stat wondering if she is tired of all
this (inu doing the kikyou thing) she gets up and is
kneeling on her bed now and says in a determind tone, ALL
RIGHT. back at the table her whole family is open mouthed
watching kagome. kagome is eating VEEERY wuickly she eats
from her bowl, then quickly uses her chopsticks eating from
all 6 platters on the table. souta says in a concerned
tone, ummm sister arentu eating a bit much? kagome
continues eating at the speed of light and says very
quickly in a loud determined tone, TOMORROW'S GONNA BE THE
FIRST TIME IN A LONG WHILE THAT I'LL BE GOING TO SCHOOL. I
NEED TO REPLENISH MY ENERGY. (its kinda hard to understand
her cuz she is eating and talking at hte same time.) i am
gonna be staying for a while (she finishes on whole platter
in like 1 second) so i am gonna switch modes and study
really hard (she finishes another 2 platters in the same
amount of time) (kagome finishes another platter very
wuickly and swallows) because i need to catch up in my
classes !! kagome continues wolfing down her food. grandpa
comments that she is a bit too fired up today. kagome
suddnely passes her empty bowl to her mother and quickly
shouts, SECONDS PLEASE. the mother ploitely takes is and
goes off to get her more food. grandpa and souta just stare
at her, motionless. grandpa is holding his chopsticks by
his bowl and souta's is holding his chopsticks on his
mouths. kagome finally calms down, looks confused and asks
innocently, what? souta says, oh nothing. kagome in bathing
now (in green water X_X). she relaxes in the tub, she
closes her eyes and plans to get a good night sleep and
forget all about the sengoku jidai. she sinks deeper into
the water. now she lays back into bed as she thinks she
will now becomes a junior high school student. she closes
her eyes and falls asleep. it's the next day and there is
a view of the blue cloudy sky. you can hear birds in the
backround. the moment kagome reaches her school she makes
the craziest "SAY WHAT" expression and her eyes are
twitching. there are all these beautiful decorations set up
at the school. everyone inside is busy setting everything
up someone says, if we dont hurry up we're not going to be
ready. kagome is standing at the entrace and is very
confused asking herself, what is going on? just then her
friends find her. they are happy that she is back and happy
that she is well enough to come to school. kagome just
smiles nervously. they comment that she was gone for an
unusually long time. yuka asks kagome. what type of rare
disease did u get this time? was it the rare disease that
caused ur ears to produce a mirage? (lol) kagome turns to
her and smiles nervously again. she then asks what is going
on inside the school. (there are images of all the students
working setting up all the decorations) ayumi loks pensive
and says that kagome wouldnt know since she has been absent
for so long. eri explains that they school is having a
culture festival. kagomes eyes widen and she has another
hilarious "SAY WHAT" expression on her face. ayumi smiles.
kagome hurriedly asks, but what about classes? yuka smiles
and tells her that they were all pushed back to make time
to set up the culture festival. eri smiles and tells her
its not a big deal to have no classes for a day. kagome
has this dead look on her face thining about her luck that
she returns when there are no classes. (lol) ayumi says her
name in a concerned tone. kagome sighs and puts her head
down. she turns away from them and starts walking walking.
she is slightly hunched over when she says exasperatedly, i
am going home. eri places her hand on her shouldr to stop
her. kagome explains gloomily that there its it not like
there is any meaning whether she stays in this or the other
world. yuka asks her why she is so glum all of a sudden.
ayumi still looks a bit concerned as she suggests to kagome
that she shouldnt be like that and they can cheer up
togehter. ayumi suddnely becomes excited and says, LET'S
SING ^_^ kagome is confused by her comment. ayumi tells
her that singing will cheer her up in no time. yuka luvs
the idea, clasps her hands together and also becomes
excited. she suggests that kagome participate in the
festival as well. kagome gives another hilarious "say what"
expression. yuka ponders for a bit saying that they do need
more help. kagome just stares at them all. yuka ayumi and
eri have these "puppy dog eyes" now as they gaze and smiles
at kagome. (image of the school with rays shining down
infront of it) back inside the school. kagome is sitting
down at her desk and yuka,eri, and ayumi are standing and
kneeling down next to her. kagome says in a confused tone,
rizaabaa? yuka explains that it's kinda of like a reserve
staffer or bench warmer. ayumi smiles widely and says
happily that they should work together. kagome closes her
eyes and looks slightly annoyed for a bit then she smiles
and says she can do that and asks what she needs to do.
ayumi tells her to sing in the choir, yuka tells her to
announce dishes when they are cooked, and eri tells to be
on stage, play the heroine's friend brilliant. kagome
looks at all of them and akss which one of the 3 she should
do. yuka says with a smile, all of them of course ^_^
kagome yells out, WHHHHHHHHYYYYYYY?!!?!?!? eri explains
that she has too since she is on the reserve. kagome turns
to her. ayumi smiles and tells her that she wants her to
sing. yuka explains that they have being going through a
lot of preparation for this so she has to just deal with
it. she tries to make kagome feel better by telling her
that doing all 3 should be easy. kagome makes another
hilarious "i guess i am surrounded" expression. (instead of
her pupils being within a circle. the circles become lines
and the pupils rest on the bottom) back with ayumi she is
conducting the choir. the choir is warming up and kagome is
shown in the end singing with them. suddenly ayumi stops
and demands kagome to sing louder and sing from teh heart.
the paino player gives them the next note and they start
singing this time kagome opens her mouth wider. back with
yuka, kagome has an apron on and is peeling potatoes. yuka
is looking in a cookbook trying to find exotic recipes.
kagome continues to peel and tells yuka that she is good at
outdoor cooking. yuka asks, as in barbecue? kagome stops
peeling, looks up at her and tells her that she makes
grilled river fish or sansai(edible wild plants) over a
wood fire. yuka politely tells her to be quiet and just
keep peeling. (lol) kagome gives her a funny glare. lol.
back with eri on the stage, she has the rolled up script in
her hand and points it at kagome saying, ok let's start
with brilliant's line in act 2. kagome is acting with
houjou in this scene. she just says plainly trying to sound
sad gazes up at houjou, after my grandfather fell pray to
the wartime illness, my family has been..... eri suddenly
stops her and yells, NOOOOOOOO THATS NOT IT. houjou and
kagome both turn and stare at her. (for some reason they
forgot to draw kagomes mouth for these few seconds. LOL)
eri is sounding overly dramatic as she says, you need to
sort of spread ur arms out (eri spreads her arms) like this
and present urself better. (eri suddenly brings her arms
together and leans closer to the guy next to her) houjou
and kagome have those hilarious "say what" expressions on
their faces. eri demands that they try it again. kagome
spreads her arms, then suddenly holds them togehter over
her heart (just like eri did) she leans closer to houjou
and says with immense emotion, AFTER GRANDPA FELL PRAY TO
THE WARTIME ILLNESS....! houjou is a bit freaked by her
sudden improvement. back at home the himono kagome brought
back has been served on the table. grandpa takes one and
eats it. souta asks him how it tastes. grandpa says, mmm
its pretty good in its own right. souta becomes excited and
tries some as well. just then u can hear kagome in the
backround saying in a totally exhausted moan, i'm home.
kagome barely has the energy to even walk and leans up
against the doorway and sighs. souta is shocked and asks
where all that energy she was replenishing went. kagome
continues to speak in an exhausted moan, i used it up all
in one day. souta is shocked and asks, were ur classes THAT
hard? kagome sinks down and explains that classes wouldve
been better. grandpa changes the subject by telling kagome
how delicious the food she brought is. kagome barely has
the energy to lift her head up to look at him but manages.
grandpa smiles widely and says, this present u brought back
goes well with sake !. souta is smiling as well as he looks
at kagome. kagome smiles and says in her exhausted voice ,
i see, i am happy for u. back in inu yashas time. the sun
has sank half way below the trees. the sky is a bright
orange. kaede says, so naraku was trying to use kagome's
eyes? miroku confirms it and says that naraku did it to
look for more shikon shards.kaede and miroku are sitting
across from each other. inu yasha is to kaedes right and
shippo and sango to her left. (image of akago in kagomes
arms) kaede takes in the info and says that naraku must not
know the whereabouts of all the shards. miroku agrees and
says that since naraku went through all that trouble
kidnapping kagome that there must be shards he cant find on
his own. shippo asks, what kind of shards would those be?
miroku explains that they must be in locations that must be
quite difficult to ascertain. inu yasha his arm around his
sword as he is sitting down and says that this means naraku
is just having a hard time. the moon shines in the sky now.
the view goes from the sky to the pond. suddenly in a smal
circular area of the pond starts bubble. a small circle of
energy rises and a man comes out. his body and arms are
very small, he has a white beard, bald but DAAAAAAMN HE GOT
A BIG HEAD with ears hanging all the way down to his
shoulders (well he is taking the song "do u ears hang low"
waaay too seriously X_X) he says, aaah so u came naraku, i
heard u coming from four li (that is approxiamately 3.927
km) away (with ears that big i bet he would X_X) a tornadoe
of energy comes down. narakus bees are all around it.
narakus voice come from within the tornadoe saying, oooh?
that will save me time explaining myself then. the tornadoe
suddenly disappears and there is a very cool effect of
naraku putting himself together very quickly (several tiny
pieces of him coming together) naraku is hovering over the
water and continues, mimisenri, i heard that u possess ears
that are capable of hearinf many things around the world.
(several bees fly infront of naraku and they view moves to
mimisenri for a bit) mimisenri responds, yes naraku i have
heard rumors about u as well. do u intend to absorb these
ears of mine into ur body as well? naraku smiles and tells
him he has no use for his filthy little body. black smoke
is circling around them. mimisenri asks naraku why he is
here then. naraku asks if he has heard of the shikon shards
whereabouts. mimisenri says, ah yes, the rumors among
demons is that u have apparently obtained nearly all of teh
shards have u not? (view of narakus profile) naraku
repsonds, one more, there is but one more shard, yet its
whereabout have eluded my knowledge. mimisenri tells him
that he will listen well then. mimisenri raises hi head
upward and tries hard. back outside inus group is there.
inu is sitting on the fence, sango is leaning on it. miroku
is standing next to them. miroku brings up the fact that
naraku has all there shards now. inu mentions the ones in
kougas legs. (image of kouga jumping in the air infront of
a green backround) sango sadly mentions the one in kohakus
back (image of kohaku standing with his head slightly
downward) inu yasha looks very concerned at her. sango
thikn about kohaku losing his life if the shard were to
ever leave his body (image of kohakus lifeless body. he is
on his back in the air with his arms bent behind him) inu
abruptly tells her not to worry about it and that they wont
let him (naraku) do that no matter what. sango smiles at
him. inu explains that THEY will be the ones to find teh
remaining shards first. sango smiles and says softly that
she intend for that to happen as well. miroku walks up to
inu yasha and says, i am sure it is unecessary for me to
say this but.... please be more concerned for kagome. make
sure she never falls into narakus hands again. inu
arubptly turns away from miroku and says, KEH i know
that!!! inu pouts then stops when sound of someone eating
can be heard. its shippo. inu asks what he is eating. he
explains that is some himono he got form teh villagers they
saved as a sign of their gratitude. sango suddenly grabs it
out of his had. shipo is surprised by her actions. she
picks up the other himono in the package saying, no matter
how many times we exterminators tell them to stop, they
never do. kirara slowly walks over to one of the himono and
grabs it with her paw. sango demands kirara to stop. kirara
gives out a sad meow. sango explains while holding one in
her hand, these are demons, they are hypae a type of fungal
demon called shironyuudou. miroku leans down next to her
and asks if its safe to at. sango turns and smiles at him
telling it's just fine to eat but if u put it in water and
heat it... (miroku says so in othre words if u boil it....)
a new shironyuudou is born. shippo looks very curious and
asks her what kind of himono that is. sango tells him that
she prefers if people just throw it out. shippo looks very
disappointed and says that it was sooo good too. inu yasha
jumps down from the fence and says in an annoyed tone, who
cares about himono anyway? (he turns to look at them) in
any case looking for hsikon shards eill lead to everything
else!! miroku closes his eyes and responds, they started
everything after all. miroku opens his eyes and gazes at
the stars. inu does the same as he says, no matter where
naraku maybe, he will definately appear at the remaining
shards, back in kagomes times. its the next day and she is
practicing with the choir. ayumi is conducting. the
finishes one round and ayumi tells them to go higher. they
continue to warm up just when they are interrupted by
someone suddenly coming in with a doctor mask on their
face. she apologizes to ayumi and alerts her that she has
caught a cold. ayumi is horrified by the news. the girl
puts her fist to her mouth to cover her coughs. she
apologizes and coughs again. ayumi tells her not to worry
about it and thats its not her fault. there is murmuring
amongst the choir. ayumi turns to kagome. kagome is
confused by the sudden attention. ayumi asks he to please
sing the girl's solo alto part. kagome freaks out and
shouts, EEEEEEHH? WHAT SOLO? ayumi just smiles as if she
hasnt heard her at all and says, ok ^_^ kagome sighs.
kagome is leaving from choir. she is hunched over dragging
her feet. she passes two guys setting up more decorations.
kagome arrives at her acting practice. as she comes through
the curtain she hears eri saying in a concerned tine, maki
are u ok? maki is kneeling on the floor with her hands
around her right leg, shaking in agony. eri suggests that
she should be taken to the infirmary. kagome is now off the
stage and standing next to eri. the cast member that took
maki to teh infirmary has come back. eri asks how she is
doing. the girl explains that maki just has a sprained
ankle and that they dont think she will be able to move.
eri ponders hard for a second and turns to kagome and says
forcefully, from now on u are not brilliant, (she puts her
hands in a fist) BUT THE LEAD ROLE ESCARGOT PUDDING (some
character name X_X) kagome steps back puts her arm
defensively infront of her and shouts out,
WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAT!?!?!?!?!?!?!
eri tells the whole cast to get on with the rehersal and
(she points to the stage) the new escargot get on stage.
kagome yelss in her face, THAT'S NOT FAIR. now kagome is
with yuka cooking. kagome is forcefully stirring a mix
together with a wisk. she has a very angered look and
whines angrily, dont u think those 2 are being UNFAIR? you
don't call people who do things like this spares and
reserves !!!! (kagome abrubptly turns to yuka) RIGHT?!?!
yuka looks snobbish as she closes another cookbook. yuka
then loks disappointed and says she cant find any good
recipes. kagome glares at her and gets back to mixing.
yuka politely asks kagome if she knows any good recipes
that pack a wallop and make a big impression. kagome
continues to glare at her. kagome angrily says nope and
continues to mix forcefully. yuka then asks kagome to find
a recipe like that. kagome puts her left palm out
defensively and says that she has to go to a private
singing practice after this (she comes more into yuka's
face) and then she has another stage rehersal. yuka comes
into HER face, scowls, and tells her that she is counting
on her. now kagome is outside and cant take it anymore. she
snaps and screams at the top of her lungs, DONT TELL ME
"I'M COUNTING ON
YOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU
UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU
UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU" (the view backs away from kagome
very quickly u can see all of her city then it backs away
further until u can see the whole country and u can STILL
hear kagome. X_X) kagome is resting her hands on the
banaster panting very hard. then houjous voice is heard
from behind her saying hello. kagome looks up to find him
walking over to her. he stops when he gets close to her and
says that he heard that she was multi-tasking. kagome puts
both of her hands in fits and yells back to him saying, I
AM NOT I WAS FORCED TO. houjou stands beside her and also
leans upon teh banaster. kagome continues to complain that
it all started out as just helping on the side as well but
they just kept piling more and more. houjou says happily,
well since its been ur first time back in a long time,
maybe they just wanted u to play a big part in teh
festival. kagome sounds curious and asks, do you really
think so? houjou smiles at her and tells her, YEAH. kagome
calmly asks him if he knows any recipes for unusual dishes.
houjou politely responds, eh thats not my forte. kagome put
her index finger to her chin and begins to ponder saying
that she might need to count on her mother after all.
suddenly kagome says "OH" out of the blue. houjou asks her
whats wrong. she turns to him and says that she think she
might be able to manage. houjou smiles and closes her eyes
and says sweelty(there is a constant closeup of him during
this part), you know higurahi, since u are playing the
heroine, we will end up interacting more, (houjou opens his
eyes) so i thought we could possibly practice together,
huh? houjou looks in her direction but kagome has
disappeared. he looks behind him and says her name in a
confused tone. it's sunset and kagome has alerted her
family that she ahs returned home. she goes into the
kitchen and finds the himono she brought. its prety full.
she thinks, "sorry grandpa" and takes alot of the himono
out. as she places it back on teh shelf the package looks
quite empty. back the next day kagome is doing fabulously
in all hre activities. she sings well and puts alot of
drama into hre acting and brings the himono to yuka. yula
asks her what it is. kagome tells her very confidently, its
something that will pack a wallop, that will cause a big
impression, and is not known to anyone. back with inu yasha
and shippo, inu yasha has one foot on the well telling
shippo that he'll be leaving now. shippo tells inu to go
since they need to look for shikon shards soon. inu says in
a slight ticked off tone that kagome stays too long when
they leave her alone. (aawwwwwwe she got a sexy stalker
^_^) inu yasha jumps into. shippo jumps ontop of the well
and tells him to tell kagome to bring more himono. inu has
disappeared within the well. shippo looks down inside the
well andcomments on how impatient he is. back with grandpa
and buyo, grandpa tosses a piece of himono into buyos
mouth. buyo seems to enjoy it alot. grandpa takes a tough
bite of the lst remaining himono in the house and comments
on how truly delicious it is but is disappointed thats
it's tough to bite through. he ponders for a second and
plans to boil it X_X he turns on the stove and pits in a
pot of boiling water. grandpa is sitting with his back
turned to the pot reading a magazine commenting about a
festival. the view of the pot shows that the himono has
completely disappeared and teh water has turned a very
light green. it starts bubbling even more. grandpa coninues
to read and comments that the economy isnt doing to well. a
big bubble forms then pops. just then another huge bubble
forms, its the demon, it keeps the same light green color
as the liquid and pink eyes. (great first we meet a man who
takes "do your ears hang low" too seriously then we meet a
demon with pink eye *rolls eyes*) it growls then it pops.
grandpa looks back but the demon has popped by then and
continues reading. just then u can see the demon form so
huge its now behind grandpa closing in for the kill >D its
tail is still in the pot, fangs form in its mouth. the
demon opens his mouth wide over grandpa head ready to ear
him. inu yasha is walking through the house we he stops
dead in his tracks. he gasps and has a horrified
expression. both the demon and grandpa turn to look at him.
grandpa calmly says, oh hey long time no see. a sweat drop
is on the right side of inus face as he charges to the
demon shouting, WHAT THE HELL ARE U DOING? grandpa is
confused by his actions. inu yasha uses sankontessou (iron
reaver) on the demon and it pops leaving no trace or
remains. grandpa looks behind him and sees nothing. he
turns to inu yasha looking confused and says, what? inu
yasha looks at teh pot it came out of and says, that must
be the shironyuudou that sango was talking about. inu turns
to grandpa and demands to know where the rest of the himono
is. grandpa tells him that that was teh last of it. inu
calms himself down and gives out a sigh or relief. he
crosses his arms and says, nevermind then. just then souta
and his mom arrive. they are both excited when they see
inu. souta asks him if he has come to have fun. inu
abruptly says, NO WAY. mom holds up the bag of groceries in
her hand and offers inu to stay and eat with them. inu just
goes, o o o ok. its sunset and kagome returns from another
hard day at school. inu yasha is beings very silly again as
he is kneeling on the floor tickling buyos stomache saying,
take that, you, take that (what a nutball :P) kagome is
surprised to find inu there. inu takes his attention off
buyo and looks at kagome. he tells her that they will leave
after they eat dinner. kagome freaks out and says, but u
never mentioned anything about leaving in such a hurry. inu
tells her to shut up and that they cant find shards without
her. kagome repsonds, oh really? inu tells her, yea! of
course! kagome asks him calmly, is that all? inu replies in
a confused tone, what do u mean "is that all?" kagome
abruptly shifts her whole body away from him and says in an
annoyed tone, hmph not like i care. she looks over her
shoulder toward inu yasha. inu yasha turns away and pouts.
kagome thinks that she feel likes her old self again. inu
yasha turns his head away from her, puts his head down his
eyes look toward the ceiling and he grumbles, i just wanted
to see u ok (yayyy we got something out of him ^_^) is
there a problem with that? kagome is feeling better and
smiles. she tells him its ok. souta is at the table
watching them and comments how selfish inu is. kagome
apologizes and tell him that she can't go back. inu still
has his arms crossed. he s calm again, turns to her and
asks, what? do u have one of those "test" things again?
kagome walks over to inu and explains she is in a culture
festival. souta asks what she is doing. kagoe smiles and
turns to him. she explains that she is singing, acting, and
cooking. kagome sits down next to inu yasha just as grandpa
comes into the room asking if family can come. kagome says
that is chouldnt be a problem. her mother gets excited and
says that they should all go. kagome puts her hand up and
says that they dot have to. grandpa is also excited and
says that he has to see his granddaughter in the limelight.
inu yasha smiles and turns to her saying happily, can i
come..... but kagome abruptly interrupts him and shouts
NOOO in his face. inu yasha sounds very disappointed and
asks, why not. he starts pouting. kagome shouts, BECAUSE
IT WOULD CAUSE A MAJOR UPROAR IF PEOPLE FOUND OUT WHO U
WERE. inu says, "KEH" as he turns away from her. its the
next day. beams of sunlight shine down. kagome leaves the
house telling them that she has lots of preparations to
make. she runs off to school. inu yasha is lying down on
the roof watching her leave. he listens closely to souta,
grandpa, and her mom talking about how excited they are
about seeing her. inu yasha lays back and give out a loud
long sigh. back with kirara and shippo. they are both
sitting on teh well. shippo whines that inu and kagome stil
havent come back yet. shippo take out some himono out of
his shirt and bites it but it has gotten really hard. so
shippo decides to use foxfire to heat it (stupidass *rolls
eyes* ) shippo is enjoying the smell but both he and kirara
and blown back when the himono expodes. a brown demon with
a small body, a small neck and a huge mushroom head
appears. sango being totally awesome throws her boomerang
it, it shatters to bits. the pieces of the demon splatter
all around shippo. she quickly grabs her boomerang as it
comes back to her and turns around (she looks very
determined) asking if they are alright. miroku arrives and
wonders why demons would be in this area. sango explains
that the demon was teh resurected himono from a
kurotenmudake mushroom. the view shows all the smoking
remains of the demon. sango holds out her hand infront of
shippo. a sweatdrop appears on his face as he laughs very
nervoursly. sango looks slightly angered and asks that he
give her all teh remaining himono to her so they can throw
it out. miroku is surprised that shippo still had some
left. shippo places 2 brown sqiglgy ones in her hand
(kurotenmudake) then a tan squiggly one ( shironyuudou) he
puts another kurotenmudake in her hand, (mrioku is holding
her boomerang and watches) a yumenamazu, a waraiasabi, a
hamadaruma (there is a view of her hand again and it shows
a grass like himono a birhgt red himono, a grey himono, and
a small watremelon like himono added to the pile) shippo
keeps adding them, a biting watermelon, and a esedaikoku
( a different grey one) to the pile. sango looks at her
hand full of himono and is amazed shippo collected so much.
sango demands to know if this is it. shippo whines that
kagome took the rest. there is a view from inside the well
and sango, miroku, kirara, and shippo's faces appear on
top of each side. sango and miroku says that it should be
ok since inu yasha is there. shippo alert them that inu
yasha can't really do much in kagome's world. back at the
festival, fireworks are going off. everyone is at there
stands getting ready. inside u see others in costumes. a
kurotenmudake walks down the stairs without anyone
noticing. another himono )hey maybe its a costume *shrugs*
is just hanging around while everyone else is frantically
getting ready. back with yuka she is holding a platter full
of food adn tells everyone around her to start laying out
all the baked goods. in one of the home economics classroom
there is a pot full of bubbling water and teh himono is

Well, now that the whole Shichinintai and evil baby ordeal are over with for the time being, Kagome takes this opportunity to head home.



Kagome comes home bearing a "souvenier": some unusual dried food (kinda like jerky). She goes to her room to rest and remembers the conversation she had with Inuyasha at the end of the previous episode, regarding Inuyasha's loyalty to Kikyou and her own feelings about that.



The next day, Kagome returns to school... or rather, the school festival, which she was unaware of due to her constant absence. Her three friends (Yuka, Eri, and Ayumi) corner her immediately and each ask her to take part in their projects. Well, since Kagome's been absent for so long, it would only be right to help out a little...



So, what are Kagomes participation options? Chorus, Cooking, and Theater. She's to participate in all three, of course. After rehearsing all day in all three events, she comes home completely drained, but at least her grandfather appreciated her dried food souvenier.



Back in the feudal era, Inuyasha and the rest discuss exactly what Akago/Baby wanted with Kagome. Apparently he needed her to detect a jewel shard that was somewhere even beyond Naraku's reach.



Well, with that plan shot, Naraku instead pays a visit to Mimisenri, a demon with huge ears who can apparently hear all the rumors amongst demon-kind. Naraku reveals that only one shard remains unclaimed, and Mimisenri agrees to listen for rumors of it.



All of Inuyasha's group's shards were taken by Naraku. The only ones left that they know about are the two in Kouga's legs and the one keeping Kohaku alive.



Shippou's eating some of the dried food, which was apparently a gift from some villagers they saved earlier. However, Sango recognizes it as DEMON jerky. While it's safe to eat, if you heat it in water, it becomes something else...



Back at school, Kagome keeps up with her preparations for the school festival, when suddenly the lead singer in the choir comes down with a cold, and Kagome is asked to sing the solo alto part. To make things worse, the lead actor in the play has sprained her ankle, so Kagome's now cast in the lead role (alongside Hojo). Plus, with the cooking, Kagome is instructed to find "unusual food" to impress people. Needless to say, Kagome is less than thrilled. Hojo comes to ease her frustrations, commenting that they'll be working together in the play, but Kagome suddenly realizes how to remedy her "unusual food" problem, leaving Hojo in the dust. The solution is, of course, the dried food she brought from the feudal era.



Kagome's grandfather is still munching on his share of the souvenier jerky, but decides it's a tad on the tough side, so boils it. Obviously, he didn't read the title of the episode, so it's no surprise that the pot erupts into a large and rather silly-looking demon. Thankfully, Inuyasha shows up right at that moment and takes care of the boiled demon easily.



Kagome comes home, and notices the extra dinner guest. Kagome insists she can't get back to shard-hunting yet because of the school festival. Her family wants to come see it, as does Inuyasha (despite Kagome's vehement protests).



Meanwhile in the feudal era, Shippou's still eating his jerky. Finding it too tough for his tastes, he uses his foxfire to heat it. Bad idea. It explodes into a huge mushroom demon... which is quickly vanquished by Sango. Shippou notes that the rest of the jerky was taken by Kagome to her world. Well, if Inuyasha's there with her, it shouldn't be too much of a problem.



However, in the school kitchen where Kagome left her "unusual food", a pot of water boils over on top of it, and now there's random killer food products running amok (though no one seems to notice).
