I hate goodbyes. And yet I loved episode 8 "[ Among the Twinkling Stars." It was so well done.
If you're one of the people watching Inuyasha The Final Act without being familiar with the original Inuyasha storyline, then first off, welcome. And second, you might want a little background on the characters before watching this episode. Reading the Inuyasha anime character guide and the Inuyasha manga character guide might help you understand some of the subtle references, and it will help you going forward, as the plot definitely seems to be thickening.
I'm watching the next episode in the privacy of my apartment, with a big box of tissues on hand. Sheesh.
