Come to mama
This week in InuHasa: epic writing contest time! That’s right, Kirihime has a showdown with Hami. And the results are… Well, InuHasa-tastic.
Just keep her away from sharp objects.
So as we know Hami is the one behind everything. She’s got the zombie people attacking Kirihime, and she’s also the one who got her daddy to “deliver” her book to Kirihime. Unsurprisingly, the motive behind all this revolves around Kazuhito. Turns out they knew each other back in high school when he was still alive. Being the bookworm that he is, Kazuhito hangs around the library quite often. So one day he chances upon a manuscript authored by none other than Hami. Being the zero self-esteem girl that she is, Hami is so embarrassed by being found out as a closet author that she wants to kill herself. Not that she doesn’t react this way to just about every single thing every person says to her. But anyway, doggy boy and suicide girl make a pact that the former will read the latter’s complete novel when she becomes a real author. It would have gone just peachy, but then Kazuhito had to up and die.
I challenge you to a d-d-d-duel!!!
Fast forward to present day, and Hami is plotting to “defeat” Kirihime so she can finally become a real author. Because obviously that’s how it works. And to defeat a real author, one has to beat her in a writing competition. So now the stage is set for an epic battle royale of ludicrous proportions! Two authors. Three pen charges. 100 pages. One dog. It’s on!
The Competition To End All Competitions
Basically, this was another one of those sequences. So I’m just going to keep it short. Kirihime and Hami sit down and thus begins a battle of underhanded tactics. Well, Kirihime keeps it clean, but Hami pulls out all the stops and reveals a slew of special “Osawa Style Writing Techniques”. First, there’s the Double Driver. An impressive feat, but Hami lacks the endurance to pull it off. Next, there’s the Wake Up Canceler. That works for a bit, until Kirihime stabs herself in the thigh with Hasajirou to stay awake. Undeterred, Hami executes the Invisible Paint, Noble Palette, and Mark Whisper but to no avail. At this point, things are looking pretty bleak for her as Kirihime forges on ahead at an incredible pace. But then Hami reveals her final secret weapon: Brionac. By scattering keywords throughout her book Celestial Romance, Hami is able to embed a suggestion in the minds of her readers. The directive: kill Kirihime. Pretty extreme, don’t you think?
Kirihime enters last stand mode.
Kirihime, having read the book, is thus incapacitated as she is forced to use her left hand to fend her right hand off from stabbing herself in the face with Hasajirou. Clearly, the tide has turned. Except not. Because a lack of hands isn’t going to stop Kirihime from writing. She’s still got her teeth! Thus clenching a pen between her chompers, our favorite sadistic, flat-chested author is able to best the competition and prove her writing prowess. Not that it had anything to do with writing by this point.
So yeah, a bunch of ridiculous stuff happens in true InuHasa fashion. Hami is defeated, but it’s all OK. Kirihime reveals that Hami’s rise to fame was due to her own talents and not from her father’s inifluence, And Kazuhito promises again to read the completed Forest of Kozu whenever Hami gets that done. With that, any potential suicide crisis is averted and Hami and Kirihime become bffs. Oh and by the way, Kirihime exploits her new friend’s Brionac to manipulate Kazuhito into jumping on her. We’ll see how that turns out…
