The Dried-Up demon about to attack

Naraku has nearly all the shards of the Shikon Jewel, eluded by only a single shard that cannot be found anywhere in the world. In order to locate the final shard, Naraku visits Mimisenri, a demon with ears capable of hearing all things in the world. Kagome returns home to relax, but ends up busy helping her school prepare for a Cultural Festival.
