Kaguya is the main antagonist in the second Inuyasha movie 039Castle Beyond the Looking Glass.039 Kaguya is a socalled fallen angel it is never specified if she is truly an angel or a mere demon who thinks she is who desires the Celestial Robe which can make her immortal. However long ago Kaguya was sealed away in a mirror that seems similar to Kanna039s. Following orders from the recently deceased Naraku Kagura and Kanna go on a quest to collect 5 magical items one of which is a scrap of InuYasha039s robe. It is also during the collection of the 5th item that Kagome is captured. Upon collecting the items 5 beams of light create a pentagram over Japan freeing Kaguya. InuYasha races to Kaguya039s castle with Shippo Sango Kohaku and Miroku lagging behind. Kaguya uses the mirror she was previously sealed in to seal InuYasha039s human side unleashing his full demon side. Kagome in a desperate attempt to stop the transformation Kagome kisses him cracking Kaguya039s mirror and breaking the spell. At this point Sango and the others arrive to witness the couple039s first kiss. Kanna then uses her own mirror and steals some of Kaguya039s life force. At this point a spider mark appears on Kohaku039s back and Naraku emerges apparently not as dead as InuYasha and company would have hoped. Kohaku once again reverts back to Naraku039s control and Miroku regains his Wind Tunnel. The castle starts to collapse and InuYasha and the gang flee. Kaguya chases them as a black cloud determined to kill them. However Miroku uses his Wind Tunnel to absorb Kaguya. Everyone including Naraku escapes the castle unharmed. Kaguya is supposedly the girl Kaguyahime a girl from a commonly known Japanese legend known as the Legend of the Bamboo Cutter. Again it is not truly specified if Kaguya is actually Kaguyahime or merely believes herself to be. In the legend five princes ask for Kaguyahime039s hand in marriage. Not planning to marry any of them Kaguyahime sends each of them on a quest to retrieve five treasures the basin of Buddha a silver and gold alzalea the Chinese Fire mouse or fire rat as in InuYasha039s robe a colored dragon jewel and the seashore treasure of the swallows. All the princes fail their task and thus fail to win Kaguyahime039s favor. In the movie these treasures are the key to releasing Kaguya from her mirror. They also represent wood earth fire metal and water. In the movie Kaguya desires the Celestial robe to gain the power of a celestial being in order to return to the moon. In the actual legend Kaguyahime returns to the moon after a set amount of time claiming her time on earth was merely punishment for an unknown crime. http://www.absoluteanime.com/inuyasha/kaguya.htm
