I just wanted to know, is anyone else a total Band of Seven fan?

For those who don't know, the Band of Seven are the group of seven warriors Naraku brought back to life to help shield him from Inuyasha and gang. In my opinion, they were the best part of the whole series. At first they appear to just be villains, but as their story progresses, the series reveals amazing depth in the individuals and the relationships. For example, both Bankotsu and Jakotsu mark a first in Inuyasha. (First atheist and first gay guy) It is also really the first group of villains that work together as a team and where everyone is at least tolerant of each other. Also, there are distinct connections between the members of the Band of Seven, from Ginkotsu and Renkotsu, to Jakotsu and Suikotsu. These guys are totally the BEST!

They are:

My favorites are in this order:

1. Bankotsu
2. Ginkotsu
3. Jakotsu
4. Suikotsu
5. Renkotsu
6. Kyokotsu
7. Mukotsu

I would have to agree they all had very good character development and they were killers but not only that they were humans. So Inuyasha truly had his hands full. Plus it was nice to see something besides daemons all the time.
