InuYasha: The Final Act Season 1, Episode 10 "Flowers Drenched in Sadness" Review

From Narasu Rebbapragada on the VIZBlog:

Episode 10 of Inuyasha The Final Act, "Flowers Drenched in Sadness," shows the evil side of sweet, or is that the sweet side of evil? First, we get reintroduced to Kanna, Kagura's sister, walking morosely in a sea of white flowers. Kanna's sweet, detached, and demonic demeanor kind of creeps me out, and yet I feel immense sympathy for her in this scene. It's the flowers, for sure. They make her seen vulnerable.

Also vulnerable are those poor villagers giving their souls to that horrible flower prince. (He creeps me out more than Kanna does). I interpret that scene as a statement on the tradeoffs people make just to get a little peace of mind. I also think it's a warning against quick fixes in the pain department. Sometimes, you're just meant to go through what you're going through—no shortcuts.

And does everyone like the new closing theme song?
