When does Bankotsu the first time in the anime? I've long been looking for the result, however, to think long unfortunately nothing. Would be really great if someone would help me because more ...

Well he appeared for the first time in the very end of episode 109, but his official first appearance is in episode 110.

Well in Bankotsu's character infobox is Jakotsu listed in the section 'family'. Is this a mistake or was Jakotsu really related with Bankotsu? I thought both were only close friends. Yura of the Demon-Hair (talk) 16:16, June 25, 2013 (UTC)

As far as I can tell they were not related, there isn't any evidence of this. You are correct that they are only close friends, I'm not really sure why someone put that they were family. Super Shmevan (talk) 00:29, June 26, 2013 (UTC)
They're just close friends, not family. 珊瑚留言 08:40, June 26, 2013 (UTC)
They were probably listed as family because all the Shichinintai, particularly Jakotsu, refer to Bankotsu as "brother" or "big brother."--Suzaku 朱雀Maze Castle 17:16, June 26, 2013 (UTC)
Yeah, you're probably right about that Suzaku. Super Shmevan (talk) 19:56, June 26, 2013 (UTC)


Was it Inuyasha that killed him with Backlash Wave, or Naraku by removing the Jewel Shards? Because, how can a specter die as long as they have a jewel shard inside them? (There was really nothing left of Ginkotsu after his selfdestruct) Yes, Bankotsu seemed to die from his injuries, and someone said "so Bankotsu's dead?", but wouldn't the jewel shards keep him alive until Naraku removed them? If there's something I'm missing as to how the Backlash Wave could kill him when he still had Jewel Shards inside him, let me know KillRoy231 (talk) 05:37, February 9, 2017 (UTC)

Naraku himself tells that Bankotsu was killed by Inuyasha. --
