We are talking about Otome or, Gitsune? If it's Gitsune it makes sense that she would die here because even if she was tricked her goal has been met, plus I would like to think that Hiroshi is one of the few shounen Mangaka with enough balls to kill-off a popular character when necessary.

She is a villain afterall, who has sacrificed many lives to bring back Seimei, as well as tormented the Nura clan for centuries. She's going to have answer for that one day.
Kitsune's finished already: Seimei threw Kitsune straight into Hell.
Even if Yamabuki 2 retains her abilities, the different personality will make her and Kitsune-Yamabuki different characters.

Argh, that actually slipped mind! I haven't been keeping up with the current chapters recently.

It still feels kinda of cheap though, especially since her body took most of the damage and by all rights should be dead. It's tragic considering her backstory during this chapter, but it makes the most sense, IMO.

Youkai are generally more durable though, heck, Rikou split that big guy in half and he just sewed himself back together.

I THINK the body is supposed to be human

Technically wouldn't Kitsune possessing a youkai body be really weird? When I think of possession by spirits I think of human bodies.

In fact, I think that's why matoi works for Rihan and Rikuo but not for Nurarihyon.

Plus she managed to touch the seal. That's something that youkai can't do

I think the body turns into a youkai body once Kitsune possess it. Remember that Nurarihyon killed the former host with Neneikimaru, a sword that can't seriously wound humans.

problem is that they used the resurrection technique on otome. Meaning that should be her original body given life but turned younger. However her original body was a youkai as well. Hopefully we'll get some info on this next chapter.

Even if she survives though remember the flashback with seimei the resurrection technique was used but the body decayed quickly afterwards.

For those who still doesn't believe that the anime is increasing the manga's popularity, see here:

The anime may suck, but at least it's making the series more popular

While omitting "Hagoromo" it's Kitsune.

I can't wait to see this animated, with Rikuo/lulou Demanding the Third's Seal...

And wait, what's Rihan doing at the begining of the chapter?
Does it mean that Rihan is still kicking down in Hell?

No, that was a flashback scene to hype people (it did a good job: looking at Pixiv, Solder Rihan is popular).

so the curse can't let Rikuo choose a yokai as a wife?
so we can be sure that Rikuo/Tsurara pairing is dead no?

The opposite actually: it increases the chances of a RikuoxYoukai pairing as that way curse is relevant, with RikuoxHuman it will get much less relevant.
And since Rihan in past choose a youkai as his first wife and suffered because of the curse, "Nura's like humans anyway" solution wouldn't be satisfying. So the "Curse gets lifted" solution feels essential.

Of course, this is looking at the current situation. The curse can end up having another role, but I can't really come up with another.

Finally seen ch 133. Those are my questions as well. I thought Kitsune can only take over a human host.

Seimei's cycle of birth in chapter 120 clearly showed that any being who died can be reborn into something else.

depends if the curse is still in effect. There's no coming back for hagoromo gitsune after being cast into hell like that. maybe by that happening the curse was lifted.

they changed her into a kid. Pretty sure they could also turn her human.

But she didn't 'die', did she? All it said was she disappeared then one time, she heard this voice from hell, and then she was turned into a child.

Reverting her back to a youkai kid and changing youkai to human are very different. I don't think we should be making assumptions.

Seime uses hangon/resurrection jutsu on her, I think we can assume she died and the fact that she said "I disappeared from this world"
