        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.
