It looks like things are stable again, which is nice. There have been stability issues in the past, but there is no such thing as 100% uptime anyway. Just goes to show the dumbest things can really put a hamper on things. Anyhow, It looks like Un-Go is not the only one to have two more, at most, releases. My other season pass, which is not the complete first season, is also coming to an end soon. Today, I will be reviewing Inuyasha: The Final Act episode 11.

As I have given a series synopsis in an earlier post, I will not go over it again.

Kanna and Inuyasha have engaged in battle, as ordered by Naraku. During the battle, Inuyasha and his friends discover that the mirror demon really did steal Tessaiga's abilities. However, no matter what is done, the demon is not affected by the damage, which disappears almost instantly.

I thought the episode was okay. The action that fans expect is still present. I liked how Kanna was not as emotionless as Naraku thought. At the same time, that was kind of obvious from what had happened in the last episode. Of course, the battle between Inuyasha and Kanna was also not hinted at until a later part of that same episode. While I cannot think of a reason that Kanna would stay by Naraku's side all the time, if he just willing kills off most of his pieces on the board, I do know that it is never too late to change one's ways, unless the world was going to end this second or day, which may happen, but I find unlikely. I also liked that Inuyasha did not express any desire to kill Kanna. When were first introduced to him in the first anime, after Kikyo pinned him to a tree, I would think that he would be capable of killing Kanna without remorse, but like Sesshomaru in this series, Inuyasha became a better person. I think in this case though, Inuyasha would have had nightmares because Kanna is still pretty much a kid, as well as a demon that never really acted on her own accord against Inuyasha. I also liked that for once in a while that Kagome did not scream out Inuyasha's name constantly. That has not really put Kagome in a good light and some think of it as annoying as the infamous Clippy from Microsoft is to computer users, always popping up offering help when unneeded. Outside of that, I cannot really think about anything else that was great. The fact that Kanna does have emotions that Naraku was not aware of, as well as the fact that the action fans expect and Kagome is not constantly screaming out Inuyasha's name is definitely nice.

Although the episode was good, there are certainly some issues. However, since I cannot think of anything that I have not already mentioned before, since fans of the series do not really care that much about the flaws, or that does not have some understandable reason behind it, I will say that there is nothing worth mentioning.

Considering that I could not think of anything worth mentioning that was bad, I will say that this was worth watching. I recommend this to only current fans of Inuyasha.
