Naraku is one devious dude, but the bright light of this episode is the evidence that he's not infallible. It seems that the more everyone works together, the better chance they have at defeating Naraku. But Naraku is no dummy. He realizes that psychology can be a powerful weapon all its own. Will he be able to get between Sango and Kohaku? Will he be able to exploit the rivalry between Inuyasha and Sesshomaru? He'll sure try. Watch episode 14 "In Pursuit of Naraku" to see his attempts at emotional warfare.
Inuyasha and Sesshomaru fight together against Shishinki, the Ogre of Death. The battle reveals some surprising backstory and a cool power-up, but not before Sesshomaru has to seriously suck it up when he hears some harsh news about his father and his sword. Even if you're not the biggest fan of Sesshomaru, you'll likely muster up some sympathy for the guy. I don't want to give away the story, so watch episode 13 of Inuyasha The Final Act now and let us know what you think.

Welcome to the New Year (and a new decade)! We're kicking things off right with a birthday tribute to a certain hero (or should we say heroine?) from Bleach, Yoruichi! She's a fighter, she's a cute cat, she's a font of wisdom, and her birthday is January 1, so give it up for our favorite feline, and send some good wishes her way -- just don't step on her tail!
Happy Birthday, Yoruichi! And here’s to a Happy New Year!
While the whole world is busy celebrating the start of another year, a very special someone will be marking her own beginning—the one and only Yoruichi Shihoin. The enigma formerly known as Mr. Yoruichi couldn’t blend into a crowd if she tried. Whether she’s prowling around Karakura Town disguised as a black cat or saving the day with her phenomenal fighting skills, Yoruichi is a commanding presence—possibly a result of her days running the Soul Society’s secret assassination squad.
Even in her feline form, Yoruichi can silence anyone with a look. Just try to avoid doing anything stupid, like grabbing her tail. Ichigo may want to forget that awkward moment… (See episode 25.) In less stressful times, Yoruichi has been known to reveal a playful side. No one, least of all Ichigo, will ever forget the experience of seeing Yoruichi’s true form for the first time. Talk about a shocker (episode 41)!
It’s hard to believe, but long before Ichigo and his friends knew her, Yoruichi was a daughter of the nobility! Elegant, dignified and extremely powerful, she fulfilled her duty as the defender of the realm (episode 57). But then one day she disappeared for reasons that remain a mystery, and she went underground, presumably with her childhood friend and former captain Kisuke Urahara. Together, these two appear to share more than a few secrets between them. Wouldn’t you want to be a fly on the wall when these two talk?
This January 1st may mark just another birthday among many for Yoruichi (trust us, she’s a lot older than she looks), but we all know how exceptional she is. Who else would we pick to teach us bankai in just three days?
