Episode Summary for Episode 136 - The Bizarre Invisible Youkai Appears!. Written by inuyashaworld.com visitor
Dinner is sparse: the usual meal of fish-on-a stick looks more like bait than the catch of the day Shippo’s hunger doesn’t get any sympathy from Inu-Yasha. He makes grabs the last fish off the fire and Shippo is left to feed only on his anger. Kagome remedies Shippo’s meal woes by sharing her fish, but the young kitsune is already plotting his revenge against his hanyo tormentor. Not far away, Haori, the elderly taijin is still working. A local village has engaged her to get rid of a demon who has been stealing their scrolls and documents. Next day, Inu-Yasha and company arrive at the same village. They discover Haori who is happier to see them, than they are to see her. She tells the crew about the demon she’s been hired to exterminate and once again, the cagey old girl invites them to collaborate on her extermination job. They reluctantly accept. Haori leads the team to the demon’s next target -- the village’s library, where the scrolls are kept. She selects her team, choosing Miroku, Sango and Kagome, however, Miroku and Kagome aren’t eager to participate so Miroku recommends Shippo and Sango for the job. Haori departs with her new assistants while Miroku, Kagome and Inu-Yasha enjoy a tea break. While Miroku chuckles over dodging the old taijin, but Kagome frets about Shippo’s safety. Haori and her team also have tea elsewhere, and discuss strategy for catching the scroll-snatching demon. The old lady and Shippo have an idea - it would be easier to catch the elusive demon while invisible. The old taijin and Shippo create an invisibility spell. Delighted with its success, Shippo and Sango decide to field test the newly discovered tool. Shippo is off to harass Inu-Yasha while Sango goes to find Miroku. The invisibility spell seems to work well -- on most people. However, Miroku’s flirtation with the local village girls turns horrible. Sensing something bad approaching, the lecherous monk turns to look behind him and spots a grim-faced Sango, wordlessly stalking him. She follows relentlessly, unaware that Miroku can see her despite the spell. Panicked and unable to endure Sango’s silent, frightening pursuit, Miroku falls to his knees begging her forgiveness. Sango panics just as badly when Miroku confesses he saw her the whole time. Meanwhile, Shippo arrives at the gang’s current lodgings. He makes silly faces at a baffled Kagome while she bathes, then locates Inu-Yasha, for his kitsune reign of terror. Shippo executes one terrible prank after another on the incredulous Inu-Yasha. Shippo presses his luck a bit too far and Inu-Yasha sends him flying across the yard. Seems a half-demon can also see through the invisibility spell. The field test was a failure but Haori and company will pursue the demon as planned. Nightfall. Haori and Sango stalk the elusive demon while Shippo keeps an invisible vigil over the scrolls in the library. Sango senses a weird presence, but Haori dismisses it and the two women continue their reconnaissance of the grounds. Shippo waits, terrified, inside the library. The only lamp blows out as a large, paper-doll like creature slips through the crack in the library door and ripples towards the scrolls. It stops before its treasure and plumps up into a huge, rotund humanoid demon. Ignoring Shippo, the big demon helps himself to piles of scrolls until Shippo, using fox magic, multiplies himself and swipes the scrolls back. Sango arrives in time to cut down the portly demon with the Hiraikotsu. Recognizing he’s in trouble, the mammoth demon deflates, turning back into a wispy, floating creature. The creature flies after Shippo, attempting to steal back the scrolls while Sango and Haori chase him like a runaway kite. Inu-Yasha arrives and grabs the fluttering creature, and prepares to put him out his misery. Haori stops him -- the demon can’t reveal the whereabouts of the stolen scrolls if he’s dead! In gratitude for sparing his life, the thief leads everyone to his cave and the stolen documents. He confesses that he just wanted to make sure the scrolls and documents were safe from harm. The demon promises he won’t steal any more scrolls. And, since he isn’t a threat to people, the team lets him go free. And a truce has been reached between Shippo and Inu-Yasha: they both agree the scroll demon left a lot to be desired as an opponent.
