    Trivia (3)

    • The basic abilities of a Kekkaishi are explained in this episode, and are as follows: Houi - Engulf - Locks on to the enemy. Jouso - Cornerstone - Creates the basis for the kekkai (barrier). Ketsu - Bind - Creates the kekkai. Kai - Release - Disables the kekkai. Metsu - Destruction - Destroys everything within the kekkai. Tenketsu - Heavenly Hole - Tenketsu is actually the name of the staff they use to perform this ability which sucks the shards of the Ayakashi into the otherworld.

    • The named Ayakashi that appeared in this episode were: Tatou (Multiple heads) - A monster that uses its sharp beak and powerful legs as weapons. Yumigane - A monster that becomes a full battle type after transforming from its child form.

    • The majority of this episode was actually a 5-year back-flash to show character development between the two main characters, and the reason behind why Yoshimori is so insistent on protecting Tokine.
