Latest chapter of Weekly Shonen Jumpnew hit of Kagurabachi finally explained ChihiroHis mysterious powers, especially ‘Red’ and ‘Black’ have attracted more prominent attention than his latest rival. In fact, Chihiro’s powers may be even more dangerous than the series leads fans to believe.
Kagurabachi took the shounen genre and manga industry by storm with its incredible success within just a few weeks of its release. While the first three chapters have been quite spectacular displays of the tragic hero’s abilities, Chapter #4 finally gave fans of the series much-needed explanations about its power system and The techniques behind Chihiro’s special million goldfish katana.
Chihiro’s ‘Black’ attack releases a beam of pure spiritual energy
Chihiro’s ‘Black’ attack releases the pent-up spiritual energy inside his body into a long-range slash of pure spiritual energy. As his katana is imbued with spiritual energy, transforming it into an enchanted blade, it amplifies and channels the spiritual energy or life force within his body into a highly concentrated mass. The concentrated energy created by this enchanted blade also takes the form of various goldfish that hover around Chihiro and the blade. As Shiba explains in Chapter #4, this mass of energy is also far superior to objects that a witch could create alone using only energy outside the body, such as Daruma dolls made by Chihiro’s opponent created in Chapter #4. This attack looks a lot like the iconic Getsuga Tensho used by protagonist Ichigo in Bleach, confirming that Kagurabachi is borrowing heavily from its famous predecessors.
‘Red’ can deflect and gain control of attacks
A more original power that Chihiro possesses is ‘Red’, a highly versatile defensive move that allows Chihiro to not only deflect attacks with a vortex of spiritual energy but is also said to absorb them and “take ownership” of other people’s attacks. Based on Shiba’s comments in Chapter #4, Red can allow Chihiro to control external energy blocks that are not his own, allowing him to deflect and redirect them, although this ability does allow him to absorb Whether or not he absorbed other techniques and emulated them as fans have speculated is unknown. to be seen.

Overall, Chihiro’s search for the villainous Hishaku and the enchanted swords forged by his father has just begun, and the series may have many more surprises in store. However, it’s easy to see why Kagurabachi is one of Shonen Jump’s most popular series thanks to its simple yet engaging narrative, engaging pacing, and unique art style that creates the perfect balance between simple and detailed, so fans can only hope that Kagurabachi will survive its hype and continue to surprise.
