Inuyasha ch. 497 review

Volume 50, chapter 497 Kohaku’s Neck

Once again, sorry I’ve been falling behind on these. It seems I can’t get the reviews of the latest IY chapters out until just a day or two before the next one is released. Ah well, as long as I can get them posted eventually, it’s okay =P

Anyway, this chapter just continues where the last one left off and nothing extremely significant happens. I was surprised that Naraku still has control of Kohaku…we haven’t seen him manipulate Kohaku for a long time, so he must’ve been able to do it this time because of the shard losing the purification that Kikyou gave it.

Well, I don’t really have too much else to say. The main thing that struck me about this chapter is the last panel, where apparently something is “happening” to Hiraikotsu. Hmmm…back with that bone demon/jar arc, it didn’t seem like Hiraikotsu got any “power-up” or anything, so I don’t know what’s going on with it. Guess we’ll find out next time. It could be something big, or nothing much at all. Either way, I doubt Sango could take on Naraku by herself, so Inuyasha and co. will probably arrive on the scene soon…man, Byakuya’s a wimp XD I still want to know what his story is though (and Sesshoumaru’s gotta get back here too!) And like I said last time, I still don’t have any idea as to what’s gonna eventually happen to Kohaku…
