Story and Art by Rumiko Takahashi

Slicing the Shield is the 220th chapter of InuYasha manga.


  • Inuyasha's Red Tessaiga breaks the barrier and allows him to enter Naraku's castle.
  • Sesshōmaru continues to battle Naraku. Naraku becomes distracted when he senses someone has broken through his barrier.
  • Kagura goes to fight Inuyasha. She wants him to succeed in killing Naraku so she can be free, but she is being watched by Saimyōshō, so she only makes a pretense of fighting him.
  • As Sesshōmaru cuts away at Naraku, he slowly becomes surrounded with pieces of Naraku's flesh. Naraku makes the pieces engulf Sesshōmaru and then begins to absorb him into his own body.
  • Inuyasha arrives and attacks Naraku with his windscar. Naraku's barrier proves useless to protect himself.
  • Sesshōmaru is unharmed, the flesh of Naraku becoming a shield against Inuyasha's windscar.
