Ura Urashima had a cool battle but he was a little dweeb.
Fighting Kurama in the semi-finals, he pleads to him to save his grandmother.
Which was all a trick to take advantage of Kurama’s only weakness, his kindness.
Apparently he wasn’t strong enough the kill Kurama on his own. Rather he created a force field around the ring to trap them in.
So he could release a gas that would turn anyone to a very young age.
I knew when I saw it the first time what would happen.
A very glorious thing.
The temporary rebirth of Yoko Kurama.
And oh boy, did he regret that. Faced with a very gruesome death, he decides to tell Kurama with secrets of his team.
Shishiwakamaru kills him immediately from outside the ring. Turns out he was a lower class demon all along. Makes sense.
