The Clash is the 251st chapter of InuYasha manga.


  • The Band of Seven sits and waits, knowing that since Inuyasha has a keen nose, he'll come running to them at the scent of so much blood.
  • Kōga arrives before Inuyasha does and demands the Band of Seven tell him where Naraku is. Bankotsu says that Naraku asked him to take Kōga's shards. He orders all his brothers to attack Kōga.
  • Kōga has trouble dealing with five opponents at once. Bankotsu is about to kill him and cut out his shards when Inuyasha arrives and saves the wolf with his Tessaiga.
  • Kagome sees that Bankotsu has three shards in his neck, both the ones from Mukotsu and Kyōkotsu. Inuyasha's group, along with Kōga, begin their fight against the Band of Seven.
