Episode Summary for Episode 131 - The Scroll Picture of Kannon - Cursing Traps. Written by inuyashaworld.com visitor
It's the middle of the night in the firest and women are carrying a wrapped-up package roughly the size of a human body. They get to a cliff and drop the package into the river. An old man watches, hidden from view. The wrapping slides off the package, revealing a human body that has been skinned. The old man yells, falls backwards, and runs away yelling for help. He runs into a samurai, arrows sticking out of him. Frightened by the sumaria's war mask, he runs away screaming. The samurai asks him to wait but the old man ignores him. He takes off his war mask but the old man is already gone. He drops the mask to the ground and walks off.
The old man is talking to Inuyasha and the gang about a village of oni women. He tells them that he was in the forest, gathering herbs when he got lost. As he was looking for his way home he found a swamp (Okay I guess it was a swamp not a river... well it sure looked like a river) and women were carrying something and then they threw it into the swamp. Miroku asks what they were carrying and the old man is sure it was a dead body that had been skinned. He insists that a mere human isn't capable of something like that and that the women had to be oni.

As the Gang walks along the river (swamp) they are slightly skeptical about the old man's story, mainly because there's no jaki emanating from the area. Inuyasha asks Kagome whether or not there's a shikon shard anywhere but she doesn't sense one. This time it's Shippou who insists they not waste their time if there's no shikon shard. Sango insists that they have to check every suspicious place. Kagome agrees. Naraku's goal is to complete a corrupt Shikon no Tama. They have to find the last pieces before he does.

The injured samurai from before is walking through the "swamp" when he runs into a woman washing her clothes. The woman turns around, startled, and drops her bucket. The samurai asks her if there's a village nearby and then falls down on one knee into the water.

At the village, the samurai tells his story of battle and how he managed to escape. He notices that it is a strange village: only women. An elderly woman (who looks like she'd be village leader) tells him that there are no men in the village since all of the died in battle. Then the woman asks him to stay for dinner. As the samurai ponders the suspiciousness of no children or elderly at the village, he takes a drink, only to realize that it has been spiked. He falls over, unconscious (I SO cannot spell that word). The elder woman tells a girl, Wakana, to take the man to Kannon's shrine.

A man is walking very carefully along a cliff. He looks down at the precipice below him, holding the mountain as the river in the canyon flows. "Wakana..." he says and keeps going. The rocks crumble underneath him as he says the name again, and then he falls, now yelling the name. He hits the water.

The samurai is lying spread-eagle on a wooden floor. He stirs, and then wakes. Outside, the sun is setting. He looks around, realizing that he's in a shrine. On one wall of the shrine is a painting of a beautiful woman. He wanders over to it and wonders why it's glowing. He touches it and the painting comes off on his hands. (Think the first Matrix when Neo first touches the mirror and it comes off on his hands - except with the samurai the painting remains attached instead of coming off like Neo's mirror) The painting laughs and the strings attached to the samurai's hands turn a weird greenish color. A green face comes out of the painting - ugly and looking as if the green skin were melting off it... kinda like wax. It hits the floor in front of the samurai and he turns to run. He can't get the door open, though and is suddenly pulled backwards. The next thing we see is a spray of blood and a skinless hand with shredded clothing hits the floor.

Miroku whips around, suddenly serious. Sango asks him what's wrong and he tells her that he sensed jaki. They run in the direction of the jaki and Sango jumps on the now-transformed Kirara while Inuyasha runs with Kagome on his back. Miroku felt it only for an instant, but he's sure he felt it.

The gang land at the edge of the swamp. Something bubbles under the water and Sango recognizes it as the swamp the old man described to them. They look around as something floats towards them from downstream. It's a man - the man we saw falling into the river earlier. Inuyasha wades into the water and fishes the man out. He shakes him around a bit and tells the gang that he's still alive (well not for long if he keeps shaking him like that!) ... which Miroku kindly mentions only in slightly different words.

The gang build a fire and the man tells them that his name is Shinosuke. Kagome hands him a cup of ramen which irritates Inuyasha (after all, that's HIS ramen!!!). Apparently Shinosuke is looking for his fiancée. Three days before their wedding, Shinosuke was called for battle. He received a wound and wasn't able to come home for two years. He finally returned to his birthplace but it had been burnt to the ground. His fiancée, Wakana, was gone. He wasn't sure if she was alive or dead but he's been looking for her since. He heard rumors of a village that had only women in it so he was going to see if Wakana might be there. At the sound of a village that only had women in it, Miroku's ears prick up. Inuyasha hears footsteps behind them. Kagome wonders with Sango if this village could have something to do with the village of oni women the old man had told them about earlier. Sango agrees that there could be a connection. Miroku stands up, determined to go with Shinosuke to investigate. However, Shinosuke doesn't know where it is. Inuyasha counters him. The women of the village have come to them.

The elder woman tells the gang and Shinosuke that it is, indeed, the village of women who have lost their children and husbands to war. However, there is no woman such as Wakana in the village. Shinosuke is obviously disappointed and Sango and Kagome feel sorry for him. Miroku asks him what he's going to do now and Shinosuke tells him that he'll keep searching. There's no one he can be with except for Wakana. Sango mentions that she envies Wakana for Shinosuke's loyalty, causing Kagome to look at her with bright eyes as Sango denies any meaning with the statement. However, there is a slight blush on her face. Miroku walks away and Inuyasha follows. He asks him if he senses and jaki or youki since Inuyasha only smells flowers and water. When he turns to Miroku he sees that he's wandered over to a woman and was now talking to her, hands on her shoulders. He hugs the woman close, comforting her as Inuyasha yells at him to listen. When the woman smiles and accepts the comfort, Inuyasha falls to the ground with a crash. When he gets up he's sure that there's no jaki in the area. He looks behind him to see Sango glaring and Kagome looking a little uncomfortable. I sense murderous energy. Sango insists to Miroku that it's about time they left since this obviously isn't the village of oni women that they were looking for. Miroku is horrified and panicked. The elder woman comes up to them and tells them that travelling at night is dangerous so they should stay there. Miroku quickly accepts the offer only to find out that the women and the men will be sleeping in separate quarters.

Miroku, Inuyasha, Shippou, and Shinosuke are sitting in their little hut as Miroku insists that they should be on their way. Inuyasha is confused since Mrioku was the one who was so eager to stay. Shippou knows that he just doesn't want to be stuck with the men. Miroku and Shinosuke sigh.

The women bid Kagome, Sango, and Kagome good night and leave. As Sango cleans her Hiraikotsu, Kagome makes conversation. Kagome is glad that they don't have to sleep outside and Sango tells her that it's true but they really should be looking for the village of Oni women. Her thoughts travel to Miroku and what a pervert he is around women.

Miroku makes the weirdest face of despair I've ever seen him make. Shinosuke sighs again, wondering where Wakana is.

There's a crescent moon outside. Inside the shrine, Wakana looks out at the moon. She now knows that Shinosuke was alive all this time. She thought he had died in battle. Behind her, the painting begins to glow. It speaks to her, telling her that she will allow her to see Shinosuke again. But it has to be in the shrine. Out of the paintings mouth hangs a shred of what I'm assuming is skin. Wakana agrees, trembling and with tears in her eyes.

Shippou asks Miroku how he feels about Sango. Recently they were at Mount Hakurei together all alone so what happened. *Flashbacks to Mount Hakurei - see past episode summaries for details. Basically the whole ordeal between Sango and Miroku - Miroku saving her life and almost sacrificing his own, sucking in Naraku's Saimyoshou... all that* Miroku's denies anything happening as he sees one of the village woman waiting for him outside the hut.

Sango is still cleaning her Hiraikotsu as Kagome is... I have no idea. I think she has one of those Noxema oil skin removing sheets cause she's patting her face with a small piece of paper... but I could be wrong. Meh. Let's just say Kagome's doing something weird. Suddenly she asks Sango if there's really nothing going on between her and Miroku. Sango's eyes get big and she asks Kagome what she means by "nothing." Recently they were ALL alone at Mount Hakurei so something must have happened... *flashback to Mount Hakurei... it starts where Miroku's flashback left off* Sango is blushing. She's suddenly remembered something she blocked out of her memory earlier. However Miroku's attitude didn't change at all after the incident. To Kagome, though, she insists that nothing happened and that nothing is going on between her and Miroku. When Kagome says she thought Sango had feelings for Miroku, she drops Hiraikotsu basically destroying the floor of the hut by creating a giant hole in it. (OH! I think Kagome's applying some kind of tonix or moisturizer, because she's shaking a bottle at the little white square and THEN putting it to her face... ANYWAY...) Kagome says that she thinks Miroku likes her, too. Sango looks at her and asks her why. Because it seems like she's a special girl to him or that he's looking after her. Kirara is looking outside and Sango comes over to see what she's looking at... only to see Miroku with the woman who was outside his hut. He seems to be comforting her and the he hugs her. Sango's eyes are wide. Then she turns away and tells Kagome that she's going to bed.

Shippou is yelling at Inuyasha for letting Miroku leave like that. Inuyasha says that if he hadn't then Miroku would have been whining about it all night. Shippou insists that Sango will be "pissed" but Inuyasha doesn't seem to understand why. "Are you... really that stupid?" After which Inuyasha throws him up into the air and catches him by the tail. Shinosuke tells them that he's going to go to bed and that he's going to leave first thing in the morning to keep looking for Wakana.

Sango and Kirara are asleep while Kagome stares up at the ceiling. She turns to the side, thinking about how badly she feels for Sango and how she should stop Miroku from hitting on other women. Suddenly, Kirara meows. Kagome gets up to see Sango in her uniform. She shushes Kagome.

Outside, the women of the village are walking with torches. Sango decides to follow them. Kagome tells her to wait so she can get Inuyasha and Miroku. Sango freezes and then tells her that there's no time. Then she continues after the women. *commercials*

Inuyasha's ears prick up. He gets up, smelling something. Water? No... something living... a large number of them... He gets up, waking Shippou and Shinosuke. He tells them to get back to sleep as he goes outside to investigate. Kagome catches him and tells him that Sango went on her own.

While Inuyasha runs with Kagome on his back, he tells her about the scent of the water being. He doesn't understand it but he picked up the scent suddenly when the women started to move.

The flap of a hut opens and Shinosuke wakes up. A woman has walked into his hut. He turns around to see Wakana walking towards him. He's absolutely overjoyed while her face remains expressionless.

The woman Miroku's with is leading him somewhere. The shrine - it's now glowing an eerie green color. They open the doors of the shrine to see the painting. Miroku walks inside, commenting on the painting (Kannon). The woman closes the door and then runs over to Miroku, hugging him. He looks at Kannon suspiciously.

Sango is still following the women. They are, however, aware of her presence. They disappear into the swamp and Sango runs over to the cliff from where they dropped the body at the very beginning of the episode. She looks around, wondering where they all went. She jumps down onto a stone in the swamp when suddenly, all the women jump out of the water, arms outstretched. They grab her and drag her into the murky depths. Kirara transforms and tries to save Sango but get hit by a weapon (like Kohaku's but I don't know what it's called).

Kagome and Inuyasha arrive to the spot from where Sango disappeared. They call out to her but get no response. Inuyasha jumps onto a rock in the swamp and they look around, wondering where Sango is. Inuyasha says that he's lost Sango's scent. She might have disappeared into the water. The water begins to bubble. The women shoot out of it, each holding some sort of weapon. Kagome notices jaki coming out of the women's mouths. Something is probably controlling them. A woman attacks. They jump to the side. Now they know that this is the village of oni women that they've been looking for.

Inside the shrine the woman asks Miroku to comfort her. He notices the jaki coming out of her mouth and her eyes are solid like Kohaku's when he's being controlled. He wonders if there's something in her stomach since the jaki is coming out of her mouth. (talk about bad breath... hahaha okay lame joke back to the summary). He confronts her about being controlled and then looks suspiciously at Kannon again. He turns around and Kannon glows a bright yellow. The sickly green face comes out of the painting at Miroku. It laughs and tells Miroku to hand over his flesh.

Sango wakes up, water dripping from her hair as her arms are chained up. She looks up to see the elderly woman coming towards her. She struggles against the chains. The woman says that they're going to make her one of them. She walks over to the water's edge, kneels down, and scoops something up, like a tentacle full of eggs. She takes one out and tells Sango to swallow it without biting it. Eventually the egg will hatch in her stomach and she will become one of them.

Kagome and Inuyasha are surrounded by women with weapons.

Miroku is facing the weird wax woman.

The egg is brought closer and closer to Sango's lips.

SPOILER EP 131
its nighttime and we see a distinct droplet of water fall
down into the lake causing ripples. in the backround
through the darkness u can see 6 small flames blazing. the
view goes to where the flames are and we see 3 women in the
front holding flames. 4 women carrying something very long
and oval wrapped in a grass mat. then they show a closeup
from the side of the women carrying it. then they show the
view from the back. behind those 4 are more woman carrying
flames. the comes to the edge of a small cliff. they then
dump it into the lake. it makes a big splash causing
several water droplets to rise to their face. then there is
another close up of the women and they all have a very
intense look on their faces. the women then turn around and
leave. the large object in the grass mat flows downstream
and an old man, who is behind the bushes wearing a basket
on his back, sees it. he watches it move along with
curiosity. just then the grass mat comes off and a corpse
of a man shows. the old man screams in terror as he jumps
backwards, falling onto his back causing a rustle in the
bushes. he gets up quickly yelling for someone to save him.
but he crashes into someone. the man looks like a samurai,
he has several arrows stuck within his armor and he is
growling in a very low tone. his face is red and looks
dead. he continues to approach the old man using his sword
as a walking stick. the old man is completely terrified, a
large amount of sweatdrops appears on his face as he
screams. he immediating runs the opposite way still
screaming his head off. the soldier yells after him telling
him to wait. he then takes off his red mask commenting that
the man is already gone. he then drops his red mask to the
ground, turns and continues to walk teh other way. after
the title appears we see a view of the land full of
mountains and trees. the sun is shining and birds tweet in
the backround. as the view continues to show teh land we
hear inus voice in the backround saying curiously, an oni
(orge, demon) and a corpse? they show all of inus group
stnading on a narrow path. the old man from before tells
them that he is not lying about what he saw. he continues
to explains in a slight fearful tone, i was walking through
the forest one night *flashback of the girls dumping the
corpse in the water* i suddenly came a group of women
carrying something, b4 i knew it they had thrown it in the
water (miroku asks him if he had an idea of what it was).
it was definately a dead body *flashback of the corpse
flowing downstream* and i saw there is no more skin.
*flashbacks over* (the man has his arms crosses over his
chest) nothing human could do something like that. IT WAS
AN ONI. I HAD TO BE THE WORK OF AN ONI. everyone is
looking at teh man very curiously. inu's group continue on
their journey. shippo comments on how scary a female oni
is. miroku and sango are walking beside each other. miroku
says that he cant sense any evil energy around. sango is
looking around as inu yasha asks kagome is she can sense
and shikon shards. shippo is on inu's shoulder this time.
kagome stops walking and turns around to tell him she cant
sense anything at all. shippo suggests if there is none
that they should move on. sango says they cant do that.
inu, shippo and kagome look at her curiously. sango
explains that cant leave such a suspicious place without
investigating. miroku assumes that naraku must be getting
closer to the last shard and that they must make a
decision. there is a close up of kagome nodding just b4 it
switches to the black jewel dropping into the water causing
a large splash. as the jewel continues to plunge into the
water the water becomes polluted. kagome says that they
cant let his evil corrupt the jewel. now back to the
samurai from b4. he is still using his sword to help him
walk. he keeps grunting with every step he makes as he
approaches a young girl hunched over the water with a
bucket in her hand. she stands up and sees him there. she
is surprised and drops her bucket. the bucket flows to him
and stops. he sounds very desperate as he asks hr if there
is a village nearby. he moans in agony. the pain is to
strong he left knees falls to the ground. she looks very
concerned and says softly, oh samurai, ur hurt. back in the
village one of the older women says, i see, you escaped
from battle and ended here. the samurai confirms it.
inside one of the buidlings the girl who brought him there
pours him something to drink in a small bowl. the samurai
asks if this is their village. the middle aged woman says
curiously, why do u ask? he looks outside and explains
that he only sees women in this village. all the female
villagers outside are watching him. the middle aged woman
sadly explains that all the men recently died. the young
lady kneeeling down beside him continues refilling his
bowl. has comments that war is terrible. the middle aged
womans tone cheers up as she tell him to feel free and eat
whatever he wants. the samurai is starting to get very
suspicious. he notices as he takes another sip from his
bowl that there are no children or elders either. just then
his eyes droop down, he drops his bowl, he moans as if he
sick, closes his eyes, and falls to the ground. the middle
aged women has an intense expression, her eyes never
leaving teh collapsed samurai. she tells a young girl next
to her named wakana to bring that drunk fool to kwannon.
wakana complies. its midday and we see a young man clibming
on a very narrow mountainside. beams of sunlight shine down
on him. he looks down and sees how high up he is if he were
to fall. he quickly turns his head as he gasps in terror.
he still sounds nervous as he whispers wakana's name. he
continues pressed upon the mountain side. moving to the
side, when just then teh rocks beneath one of his feet
crumble. he catches hiself as he reaches his hand over to
the next rock saying wakana's name in a strained tone.
just then all the rocks from beneath him crumble and he
falls yelling,
WAAAAAAAAAAAKAAAAAAAAANAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA.
he plunges into the water below causing a large splash. the
screen becomes pitch black and we see another droplet of
water fall into the lake making ripples. back with the
samurai, he finally awakens as he slowly opens his eyes. he
realizes he is in a different building as he looks out the
window towards the sunset. he suddenly gets up asking
himself if he fell asleep, what is this place and where he
is. he then looks behind him to find a painting of a
beautiful, high class young lady resting ontop of a small
table. looks like water colors but only black paint. he
walks over to it and wonders why it is there. he then
closes his eyes and places his hand upon the painting, as
he does a small ripple effect is created around each of his
fingers. the moment he touches it a deep evil cackle is
heard. he suddenly opens his eyes in shock. as he pulls his
fingers back a light greenish tan goop extends from teh
painting to his hands. his entire body pulses. another
evil cackle is heard but this time it sounds like a
lady's. the goop suddenly turns into a light turquiose
color and the samurai steps back in horror. the whole
painting (scroll) begins to ripple as teh evil cackle
continues. out of the face of the scroll a large gooy,
light turquoise demon bursts out. the man runs from his
life as he tries with all his might to open the door. but
its to late. he gets dragged back. even though they dont
show it, from the sounds u can tell he is slowly being
devoured. (hey what would the world be without men eh?
especially the hot sweet ones ^_^) a large amount of blood
splurts upward as he gives his finally breath. he hand
flops down. its a brickred color and all the skin is gone.
back with miroku, he then suddenly gasps and begins to look
very focused. sango asks him whats wrong. he alerts her of
a sudden burst of evil energy. kirara jumps out of her
hand, transforms, sango runs along side her b4 jumping on.
miroku is running ahead. just then inu quickly catches up
with him, he has kagome on his back as he asks miroku about
the evil energy he sensed. miroku sounds very focused as he
says, yeah, even it just a moment, but i can feel it. they
all reach the small cliffside where the other male corpse
was dropped. beneath the water a small dark creature
appears then swims down until it cant be seen. several
ripples and bubbles begin to form at that spot where it
was. sango looks to her left and asks if this could be the
place the old man was talking about. miroku firmly agrees.
something begins to drift towards them. shippo is scared,
jumps on kagomes shoulde and alert them of this. its the
young man from the mountains. kagome assk what it could be.
inu yasha walks over to him and lifts him up from his
shirt. kagome asks inu if the man is dead. inu yasha
jiggles the man up and down says innocentely, nope he is
fine. (baka *rolls eyes*) miroku annuciates to inu yasha to
PLEASE hold the man more respectfully. its nighttime and
they are all sitting beside the fire. the man introduces
himself shinosuke. kagome politely hands him some ramen. he
thanks her. there is a closeup of teh cup of ramen and u
can see his reflection in it. smoke emits from the cup and
shinosuke uses his chopsticks to place the ramen at hs
mouth. he eats the noodles then begins to slurp them all
up. inu in is the back watches him eat as he says in a
downgrading tone, what is up with this guy? kagome
abruptly turns to inu demanding that he not be rude. miroku
asks shinosuke about the scroll he was looking for.
shinosuke sadly explains, yes, 3 day b4 my wedding i was
called to war and was badly injured. (image of shinosuke
walking. he stops at the entrance of a destroyed village.
he looks weakened as he uses a stick to help him walk.) i
was recently able to return after 2 years away, only to
find my birth village wiped out, and both my fiance and my
mother missing. (flash done and there is a closeup of him
again. the view moves back until u can see kagome as well.
kagome feels sorry for him) i have been looking everywhere
for them (image of him sitting down beside a tree, looking
pensive and sad) and ercently heard some stroies of a
village populated only by women. (flashback done. miroku
has suddenly become very interested. shinosuke has a very
sad yet determined look on his face) i was desperate to
find my any help to save my family. (image of someones
feet stepping on a twig. inu yasha hears that someone is
approaching them) and i hoped imight be able to find some
answers there. sango kneels down beside kagome. kagome
whispers into her ear her assumption that this might deal
with the female oni. sango agrees since they are dealing
with strictly women. miroku suddenly stands up shouting,
UNDERSTOOD. (oh god here he goes again *rolls eyes*) WE
WILL GO WITH U TO THIS VILLAGE. shinosuke asks if he knows
where it is. inu yasha begisn to speak which surpirsed them
all as they look at him. inu says calmly, no, but i think
they might be able to lead us. (inu is looking out towards
the forest and at the top there are 2 women from the
village.) the 2 girls begins to walk away. back in the
village the middle aged woman is explaining to everyone
about the village. she says that there are aonly women in
the village and they are willing to help them in any way
they can. behind the middle aged woman are 5 girls.
shinosuke is sitting infront of her. miroku looking very
interested is sitting at teh doorway. inu is standing at
the doorway. sango, shippo, and kagome are watching from
outside. the middle aged woman continues as she looks at
shinosuke, however, from the description u gave me, as you
can see for yourself, (she looks behind her in an intense
way) the young woman u are looking for is not here. (the
view moves to the right showing all the young ladies
sitting behind her) shinosuke sighs in a disappointed way.
kagome comnents that teh girl is not here. sango says she
feels sorry for him. shinosuke walks away with his head
hanging down. miroku asks him where he is going now.
shinosuke says in a determined tone, i'll continue
looking, (close up of his determined expression) i'll
search as long as it takes. i cant give up hope now she is
all i have!!!! (awwwwwwwwe how can anyone want to devour a
man like that ^_^) kagome clasps her hands together and
sighs saying how romantic he is. (i am sure she wished inu
were more like that) sango moans as she comments that she
is so envious. just tehn kagome becomes really hyper and
looks at her as she has freaky excited smile. just then
sango becomes all nervous and embarrassed saying, oh...
uh.. thats not what i meant to say. miroku in teh
backround grunts softly, turns around and head teh other
way. inu comes from behind. he looks towards miroku asking
him where he is going. miroku stops and turns around. inu
walks over to him asking is he sensed any evil energy. inu
sniffs the air and says he doesnt smell any female oni just
water in that stream. inu suddenly stops and his eyes
waiden as he look at miroku with a young woman in his arms.
miroku sounds very passionate as he looks deeply into her
eyes saying, ooooh it must be scary living in a village
populated only by women, right? inu yasha makes a
hilarious angry expression as he suddenly apears behind
miroku shouting, HEY! DO U THINK SHE'S SOME KIND OF IDIOT?
the girl embrace miroku an says softly, yes it is monk ^_^
inu yasha collapses with a loud THUD. he gets back up
scratching his head, rolling his eyes thinking, who need
evil energy with bad vibes like th...... (kagome all the
way in teh back has a silly expression as she wipes teh
side of her face with a clothe, sango infront of her has an
angry jealous expression on her face, she look likes she is
ready to kick mirokus ass. inu yasha is infront of her
with a "hehe here is comes" expression. miroku is infront
of him with a funny, wary "darn, figures" look on his
face.) target.... locked..... sango walks over to miroku
slightly glaring at him but saying very calmly, miroku,
shouldnt we get going? we dont have time hang around while
you hit on girls now, do we? (LMFAO GET HIM SANGO) miroku
abruptyly turns around with a very scared, nervous
expression saying nervously, yyyyyea thats true. the middle
aged woman tell them to wait and stay for the night, since
its dangerous to travel at nie. she and 2 other girls walk
over to them. the girl behind her on her right says
innocently, yes please stay here tonight. miroku walks over
to them, closes his eyes and has his left hand just below
his face as if he was praying. miroku says that they have
been convince and will stay. sango suddenly appears behind
him shouting, MIROKU. the girl on teh right says sweetly
that they will find a place for them to stay. teh middle
aged woman holds her palm own pointing to her right saying
the women and men will sleep in different places. inus
groups gulps. and kagome has a "say what" expression as she
says in a surprised tone, uh seperate? (what's wrong
kagome, were u looking forward to some lovin. LOL) inside
the view shows a single candle blazing. then we get a
closeup of miroku. he has his eyes closed and is sounding
slightly angry, inu yasha, as i thought, they seperated us
from the women. inu has his arms crossed, he sounds
confused as he repsonds, what are u talknig about? areu
saying u were expecting this? shinosuke is holding his
left arm. shippo is eating rice with chopsticks. he tries
to comfort them by saying, at least we still have each
other. miroku cant take it. after he has his "episode" he
sighs. then shinosuke sighs. back with kirara, sango and
kagome. the 2 women from the village are carrying food and
say they are saddened that only women are there and that
they are happy to have guests. kagome is kneeling down
facing them. sango is sitting down with her boomerang
infront of her, kirara is sitting by her side. the 2 girl
bow and leave. kagome takes out her brush and looks
excited. she is happy that they get there own place to
stay. sango is cleaning her weapon she sounds disappointed
that they couldnt find the female oni. sango looks angered
as she thinks that miroku BETTER behave himself. back with
the men. miroku is sighing looking very pathetic. shinosuke
has a saddened expression as he sighs, wondering where
wakana could be. the view shows the drifting in the sky
past the half moon. the trees are rustling. wakana is
looking outside and is extremely thankful that shinosuke is
alive. she says sadly, i have been so lonely without you.
just then the biulding slightly lightens up in the back and
the voice of the femal oni says evilly, do you want to go
back to the man you love, wakana? (closeup of the scroll) i
will let you see him soon just bring me some more men. (an
even more close up of the scroll and this time blood is
dripping from her mouth) tears swell up in wakana's eyes
as she complies. back with the men, shippo asks miroku how
he feels about sango. miroku takes a bite to eat, he raises
his head up looking pensive. shippo continues, back at mt.
hakureizan, you 2 were alone 4 quite a while werent you?
miroku tells shippo yes. shippo then asks him what
happened. *flashback of ep 118 when sango's boomerang got
reflected and hit her. miroku amazingly jumps over the
large gap in the bridge and rushes to her rescue. he
despreately tries to wake up sango who is unconcious now.
kagura taunts him that he wouldve lived longer if he just
left her there to die. miroku has a very angered expression
as he slowly stands up unleashing wind tunnel. kagura
taunts him again that he cant use it because of teh
poisonous bees. but miroku does it anyway, for sango's
life. flashback done* miroku remebers and says, aaah yes.
shippo asks him again but more forcefully. then a girl
appears outside the window. miroku has a misheivous smile
as he says, nothing. nothing at all. such a shame. OH! she
waves to him. inu yasha sighs and tolls his eyes. back with
the women. it is very very quite. sango is still cleaning
her boomerang while kagoem is patting her face with a tiny
cloth. kagome break the silence when she leans over to
sango and asks, sango is there something going on between
you and miroku? sango becomes very embarrassed again as
sweatdrops appear on her face. she responds nervousy
saying, n-nothing at all, why do you ask? just then kagome
clasps her hands together, she looks very excited as her
whole face twinkles as she says, because u 2 were alone at
mt. hakureizan right? (flashback starts) did something
memorable happen while u 2 were there? *flashback of
miroku carrying sango. he is running away from the huge
swarm of demons chasing them. but the poison gets to him
and he collapses. sango is kneeling down beside him as he
tells her leave him to save himself. sngo refuses saying
she will never leave him. miroku looks at his wind tunnel,
smiles and tell her he pushed himself to far. he then begs
her to leave without him. tears fly out her eyes as she
says refuses again. she tell him that she would rather die
with him. she collapses ontop of him crying. miroku hugs
her and pats her on the back. flashback done* sango is
blushing as seh remebers saying that. she thinks that
miroku hasnt changed a bit since then. sango sighs. kagome
is being REALLY annoying. she is being a little TOO
persistant as she asks her once again. sango says in a loud
embarrassed tone, nothing nothing at all kagome. (she looks
away blushing and rubs her booomerang more forcefully)
there's nothing between me and miroku. kagome sounds
disappointed as she says, c'mon sango, don't you at least
like miroku a little bit? sango suddenly drops her
boomerang. seh has both her fists at her face as she
blushes saying forcefully to kagome, N-NOT AT ALL!! how
could u possibly think i like a pervert like him?!!! kagome
smiles as she thinks, a little jealous are we? (lol) sango
looks away from her and says in a very annoyed tone, he
goofs off, he's like an overgrown child, and he's
depraved. sango then takes in a deep breathe and sighs.
kagome pats some lotion on her face and tells sango that
they look good together. sango looks behind her and
curiously asks why. kagome explains to sango that both of
them seem to care alot about each other and that she
figured he would treasure like her. sango turns to kagome,
she is smiling sligthly looking overjoyed. kagome looks
behind her and asks kirara. kirara meows twice. sango walks
over to her and asks kirara what she sees. some of the
glass window is broken allowing kirara to see outside. she
points outside. miroku and the girl are walking together.
miroku says that he will always watch over her. she tells
him that makes her so happy as she leans upon him. miroku
embraces her. kagome has a funny nervous expression as she
look down at sango kneeling down looking out the window.
sango simple stansd up and tells her that she is going to
bed. back with the men. shippo is pulling on inu yasha
telling him that they MUST help out miroku. inu yasha is
lying down and look like he could care less. inu calmly
tells him to keep his little nose out of mirokus business.
inu closes his eyes again. shippo jumps ontop os inu looks
angry as he alerts inu that sango is angry. inu yasha
simple asks him why. shippo looks at inu yasha as if he was
talking to a retard and says, you.... are utterly
clueless.... inu yasha gets up and squeezes shippo by his
tail about to beat the crap out of him. shinosuke tells
them that he is going to sleep and will looks for her in
the morning. shippo is still struggling to escape inus
grip. after hearing shinosuke inu just goes, oh ok. the
screen darkens and we see another distince droplet of water
falling into the puddle making ripples. sango and kagome
are in their sleeping bags. kirara is sleeping on sangos
sleeping bag. kagome turns away from sango feeling sorry
for her. but she is curious to why sango didnt stop him.
kagome asks herself if she should help. just then kirara
meows. kagome gets ups to find sango awake an in her
exterminators outfit. all the women in the village are
carrying torches, walking into the forest. sango is looking
at them all suspiciously she alerts kagome that she is
going to check this out. kagome tells her to wait until
they get miroku and inu yasha to join them. sango stops
dead inher tracks looking upset. kagome walks over to sango
trying to comfort her saying that she is sure they will
want to come. sango says they dont have anytime to waste
looking for him. she then runs off. kagome takes one step
then stops as she says sangos name in a shocked tone. back
with the men, shippo is sleeping in the bed and inu is
sleeping on the floor (how did that happen O_o) again teh
screen darkend and a droplet of water falls into the puddle
making ripples. (good thing the N isnt close to the R O_o)
inu's ears twitch, he grasps his sword in his left hand
and he awakens as he wonders what that smell is. (shippo
probably farted >D) again the screen darkens as u see a
droplet of water fall into the stream making ripples. inu
looks pensive as he thinks, water? no, this is definately
the smell of something living. it smells like everyone in
the village. inu yasha gets up. as he does the floor
squeaks waking shinosuke and shippo. shippo looks exhausted
as he asks inu what's wrong. shinosuke looks curiously at
inu yasha. inu yasha demands that they stay in bed as he
runs outside. kagome spots him and calls out his name. she
alerts him that sango went out alone. inu is shocked to
hear the news. shippo runs outside and is standing at the
doorway. kagome is on inu yasha's back as he runs off,
through the forest, searching for her. kagome asks inu
about the water scent he picked up. inu tells her he was
confused about the scent also and think that is must deal
with the female oni. again the screen darkens as we see a
droplet of water falling into a puddle making ripples.
wakana walks into the room with shinosuke. shinosuke
quickly gets up and walks over to her. he is overjoyed to
see her that he looks like he will cry tears of happiness.
he tells her that he was looking everywhere for her. wakana
is dragging shinosuke somewhere she looks like sheis being
controlled. back with miroku and the girl, miroku looks up
at the scroll and comments that its quite a picture of
kwannon the goddess of mercy. the girl closes the door and
lean up against him. miroku looks back at the scroll and
the blood dripping out of her mouth fro last time has
disappeared. back with all the other women, sango glares at
tehm suspiciously. she continues to follow them. she runs
behind another tree to hide but the middle aged woman looks
behind her suspiciously. all the girl walk over to the
small cliff from b4. just then there are several splashes
and in teh water are several rippling circles. sango is at
the edge of the small cliff wondering where the women could
have gone to. sango jumps down landing on a rock in teh
water. the screen darkens as we see a droplet of water
falling into a puddle making ripples. just then all the
women jump up from out of the water and grab her. they all
look very creepy and have a possessed look in their eyes.
sango struggles to break free but they all take her under
water. kirara transforms adn runs to her rescue. but
something slices kirara just as she was about to save
sango. sango calls out to kirara as she falls to teh ground
on the other side of the water. she struggles more and
more. they women pull her down underwater. sango gasps for
air and becomes unconcious. inu yasha, shippo, and kagome
arrive to at the cliff. but its too late. they all jump
down to the rock in the stream. inu tells them that sangos
scent ends here and then vanishes. kagome gasps. inu
wonders if she was taken underwater. just then the water
starts bubbling. inu tells her to stay back. the women from
the village shoot up out of the water but sango isnt there.

yasha to wait. she alerts him that evil energy is coming
out of the villagers mouths. a green mist starts coming out
of all teh girls mouth. shippo screams. kagome tells them
that they girls may be possessed and that they have to stop
them without hurting them. one of the girls attacks with a
wooden staff. inu gets excited, he has a confident smile as
he says, that onni is probably using these women to protect
itself. back with miroku. green energy surrounds the entire
building he is in. miroku and the are sitting on the floor
in each others arms. she pulls back slightly and asks if
she can take a look at him. miroku gasps (she touches his
face) as he pulls back realizing taht she is possessed by
evil energy coming from out of her mouth (that green mist
again). miroku turns away from her looking very
disappointed thinking, why does it always turn out this
way? the girl asks him whats wrong. he tells her
forcefully that she seems to be possessed. in miroku looks
behind him suspiciously then suddenly gets up holding his
staff defensively demanding to know what is in that
picture. the entire scroll shines brightly in a golden
light and the light turquoise oni comes out. it attacks but
mirou jumps out of the way in time demanding to know what

string of small green orbs. (sorta looks like an egg) sango
softly asks her what is that and what she is planning to do

looking defensive with the female oni infront of him. the woman places the green orb closer to her mouth. sango tries to lean away as far as she can.
Episode Summary for Episode 131 - The Scroll Picture of Kannon - Cursing Traps. Written by inuyashaworld.com visitor
A procession of village women bears a strange burden through the dark of night. Their torch lit trek ends at a riverbank where they drop their cargo, releasing the large, wrapped bundle into the dark water below. Down stream, an elderly wanderer watches the bizarre ceremony and, as the parcel floats by, sees a flayed human corpse slip out of the wrapping. Hysterical, the old man flees for his life. Later, the old man spins his tale of horror to Inu-Yasha and the team, declaring the village women ‘oni women.’ Although Miroku can’t sense any demons in the area, nor can Kagome sense a Shikon shard, the team decides to investigate the suspicious occurrence. Meanwhile, a wandering samurai is led to the village of ‘oni’ women by a young woman he met by the river. The unfortunate samurai discovers village hospitality carries a heavy price when he is drugged and imprisoned in a small temple. Inside the temple a ravenous demon drags the warrior to a grisly death. The samurai's murder by the temple demon sends a ripple of evil out into countryside. Miroku feels it’s dark vibration and the team travels towards the women’s village to investigate. On the way, they rescue a young man named Shinosuke who is also on his way to the same village. Shinosuke tells a story of star-crossed lovers separated by war, death and disappearance. While he was fighting the war his betrothed, Wakana, vanished without a trace. He travels to the village of women to seek his precious Wakana. Thrilled by the idea of a ladies only village, Miroku eagerly volunteers the team to accompany Shinosuke on his journey, but villagers find the group first, and invite them back to their settlement. At the village, the headwoman tells Shinosuke the woman he seeks is not there. Shinosuke is heartbroken but determined to continue his search. Kagome is touched by Shinosuke’s commitment and Sango is jealous about his devotion. Miroku hears Sango’s comment and walks away with a sigh. Inu-Yasha follows him, trying to talk about the rumored evil presence, but he’s cut short when he catches Miroku with his arms around a village girl. Although Inu-Yasha isn’t sensing anything, he definitely senses Sango’s anger when he’s caught between the angry demon slayter and the philandering monk! A timely invitation to stay from the village headwoman saves Miroku from Sango’s wrath. Miroku is delighted by their hospitality until he discovers the village accommodations are separate sleeping quarters for the men and women. Shinosuke and Miroku sigh over their disappointments aggravating their roommates, Shippo and Inu-Yasha. Shippo tries encouraging Miroku’s relationship with Sango and almost succeeds until the village girl Miroku was flirting with passes by, again. Alone in the girl’s dorm, Kagome prods Sango about Miroku, too. It’s pretty obvious to Kagome something romantic must have happened between her friends, but Sango denies, blushes and polishes her Hiraikotsu blade harder and harder. Kagome tells Sango that Miroku really loves her. Just when Sango is about to believe Kagome’s intuition, Kirara mews, drawing Sango’s attention to a tear in the old shoji screen wall. Through the hole, Sango spots Miroku with the amorous village girl. The rest of the night is sleepless for Sango and Kagome - Kagome frets about her friend’s love life; Sango is disturbed by a strange procession of village women in the middle of the night. Sango dons her armor and follows them, alone. Residents of the men’s area are equally restless; Miroku is out, Shinosuke took a while to sleep, and Inu-Yasha is roused by the odd smell of something wet and living. Going outside to investigate, he encounters Kagome. She tells Inu-Yasha about Sango’s pursuit of the village women and pair goes to investigate. In the men’s lodge, a nocturnal visitor awakens Shinosuke - it’s his fiancée Wakana. She’s living at the village after all, but this is no ordinary lover’s reunion, Wakana was dispatched by the “temple demon”. Miroku’s new friend seems to have the same mission, seducing the miscreant Miroku into the temple of doom. Embracing her, Miroku notices the woman is possessed. His discovery comes too late as the demon of the temple scroll reveals it’s evil intention and attacks. It wants skin -- Miroku’s skin! Meanwhile, Sango follows the villagers to the river where they disappear. Out of the depths, the villagers rise from the water, dragging Sango under. Inu-Yasha and Kagome arrive too late to help Sango, but just in time to be attacked by the village women, rising out of the water to battle. Sango awakes to discover she is shackled to a cave wall and face-to-face with the village headwoman. The woman reaches into a subterranean pool, harvesting an egg-like object. Looming over the captive Sango, the headwoman forces the egg to her lips. Her intention; make Sango one of them.
