In Episode 27 of "Yashahime: Princess Half-Demon," Moroha and the two half-demon princesses finally met Bokusen-Oh. The 2000-year-old demon tree was aware they were looking for the Kyuyokon root.

Meanwhile, Moroha asked him if the Tenseiga’s sheath was created from him. He revealed it was not just Tenseiga, but the Tessaiga sheath as well was crafted using his body.

Moroha tried to ask the demon tree if he knew anything about the Kyuyokon root. He stated the precious root was part of a demon spirit tree, which was standing on Mount Musubi.

They asked Bokusen-Oh if the root can take in demon energy and store it. He told them Kirinmaru feared the root because of its immense powers and it was indeed capable of storing demon energy.

“Jaken recalls that fateful day fourteen years ago when Zero placed a curse on Rin that would make her slowly rot away to an excruciating death.
