InuYasha Volume 19 by Rumiko Takahashi

book 155:  InuYasha Volume 19 by Rumiko Takahashi

It turns out Sango's brother, Kohaku, was purposefully released by Naraku to lure Kagome away from her companions and dispose of her while stealing her Shikon Jewel shards.  Kohaku resists the command to kill, though, causing the group to realize that while Naraku still pulls the strings, Kohaku retains some of his own soul and could potentially be saved.  Meanwhile, Sesshomaru, InuYasha's half-brother, investigates the reason why InuYasha seems to change periodically into a full demon.  He finds out that if the transformations continue, InuYasha will eventually lose his soul and become a mindless killing machine.  The brothers' father left the sword Tetsusaiga to InuYasha to protect him from that fate.  InuYasha, concerned about not being able to easily wield the now-heavy sword (since its being repaired with his own fang) and having it consequently taken from him leaving him vulnerable to his demon blood, learns from Totosai, Tetsusaiga's creator, that to gain the strength to master the sword, he must surpass his father and defeat his father's old enemy Ryukotsusei.
