Good morning new and old Painkillers, and welcome to the next chapter in Inuyasha month. I hoped that everyone enjoyed my review of the first movie, and actually went out and checked it out for themselves. Now it’s time to go further down the rabbit hole, and let’s talk about the second movie, The Castle Beyond The Looking Glass.
The movie opens up with the gang in the middle of the battle with their sworn enemy, Naraku. Unfortunately, Inuyasha has to sit out this fight, due to it being the night of the new moon, and him turning human during this time. Luckily, the sun rises, and Inuyasha is back to being a half demon. With his help, they kill Naraku. After the battle, Miroku realises that the curse that was set apond his family is finally broken, as his wind tunnel is gone. With the death of Naraku, Miroku and Sango separate from Inuyasha, Shippo and Kagome, as they take time for themselves, and to figure out what to do next.
Not feeling fully free from the grip of Naraku, Kagura and Kanna, incounters The Princess of the Heavens, Kaguya. She is currently trapped inside of a mirror. In return for freeing her from the mirror, Kaguya offers Kagura and Kenna true freedom from Naraku. They go off to collect five items, and putting them in certain locations to break the seal, freeing Kaguya from the mirror. Once free, she incounters Inuyasha and Kagome, and this is where I tell you if you want to find out what happens next, that you go watch the damn movie for yourself.
Once again, this movie is really good, and again feels like it is just an extended espisode. Speaking of espisodes, this movie supposedly takes place between episodes 95 and 96. If you are a hardcore fan, and plan on watching the entire series again, now you know when to watch this movie. Just like the first movie, I was able to find this on Netflix, so that makes it easier for everyone to watch. I really did enjoy watching this movie again, and I damn near forgot about the twist near the end. This is only the second movie, and I do like this one better than the first movie. I wonder going into the third movie, will I like that one better than this one? Well, there is only one way to find out. Come back next week, as we dive into the next movie. Until next time.
