"Goodbye? No Way! Separation with Tears?!"
Original Air Date:
February 22, 1995
English Air Date:

There was a full recap of recent
episodes is provided at the start of the episode
The Cave of
the Sun God is on the land of Momiji’s family
Mr Kunikida knows he
has to kill Kaede but doubts he can, and Momiji and Kaede’s mother
is also willing to do the same, creating a barrier with her own blood
because she was once the Kushinada. Kaede and Susano-O easily break
Murakumo throughout the episode and hangs in there fairly well
despite being under-powered, even drawing blood on Murakumo, but he
ends up being killed by Muarakumo, Momiji actually flies to
Kusanagi’s location seeing the final blow as Kusangi manages to
crack the mirror but its too late
Murakumo creates a
mirror that when the sun this it will signal the arrival of Susana-O
at the Cave of the Sun God
Momiji can sense the
presence and communicate with Kaeda and Murakumo via telephaty like
she can with Kusanagi
Momiji and Ryoko
went searching for the Cave, but it turned they were tracking the
battle between Kusanagi and Murakumo, when Susana-O attacks
Kaede reveals that
for Japan to be worthy of her protection as the Kushinada is that
everyone must become plants.
Huge difference between Kaede and Momiji is that Kaede has no 'heart'

And yeah, I’ve had this copy for years since I don’t have the back cover any more and am Iucky to still have the front cover.
But as you can tell from the cover, it features the return of Ardra.
For those of you who may not know: Ardra was the antagonist in the season four episode, ‘Devil’s Due’, where the Enterprise-D responds to a distress call from a planet that was being tormented by a person claiming to be their Devil. Ardra in actuality is a con-woman who uses her knowledge of the planet’s culture along with devices like transporters, holograms a…
Way back on May 23, 1999, myself and my younger brother were watching Over the Edge, and of course that date has gone on to live in infamy, since that is the day when Owen Hart plummeted to his death because of Vince Russo inspired stunt gone wrong. Yes the non-creative goof ball admitted it was his idea to have Owen do something 'special' on the show in his book 'Forgiven', so I'm not speaking out of turn here... but something else came out of it: the WWE's Show Must Go On Mentality With The Exploitation of Death.
Think about, in October 1997 with the death of Brian Pillman, the WWE exploited the hell out of it by talking non-stop about it during the Bad Blood pay-per-view that year and even having Pillman's wife come on the air to basically have her not blame the company or the wrestling industry for his death... and the WWE was rightfully criticized for it.
