"Looking at Kikyo's sad face..For the first time in my life, I felt as if I had done something wrong. After that day, all I could think about was Kikyo. She was always near me, and I was always near her."

This cel is part of an important four cut sequence from one of the most pivotal episodes of the saga, Episode 15. In this episode, Inuyasha recalls his memories of the local head priestess, Kikyo. Although Kikyo has been dead for fifty years, Inuyasha relates his tale as if the events happened only momments ago. For him, Kikyo was Inuyasha's 'most important person' and a woman that, much to her dissapointment, Kagome can never be.

Anything that I say about this cel will not do it justice. The entire four cut sequence focuses on Kikyo, and how Inuyasha, blending into the background, watched her. The detail on the leaves in this particular cel is absolutely incredible - each one is different from the others. It's a perfect example of one of the most important times of year in Japan, the 'Kouyo' (Fall). All around Japan, the leaves on the Japanese maple plants turn from green to varying shades of yellow, orange and red. Perhaps the artwork means even more to me as I visited Japan during the Kouyo in 2008, and was able to see the wonderful colors all around.

From Episode 15 - "Hiun no Miko Kikyo Fukkatsu"(Return of the Tragic Priestess, Kikyo).
