Poseidon of the East (32)


The tonkou (遁甲) is the way shirei can move through the winds in the sky, through veins in the earth, and through the currents in the water, while remaining hidden from view. A similar term, tonjutsu (遁術), is defined as the "art of ninja escape."

In Japan, the Tsuina (追儺) festival is known as Setsubun (節分). It's a spiritual spring cleaning ceremony for driving out evil spirits along with the dust, accomplished by peppering people dressed up like ogres with roasted soybeans.

Pg. 253:

"Or that what Rokuta thought he was saying."

Should be "Or that is what..."

And on the same page:

"I want to stop. That’s why he meant. Let me out of here."

Shouldn't it be "That's what he meant." ?


Thank you again for another wonderful chapter!

"Some kirin born Mt. Hou could do the same thing."

Should be "Some kirin born on Mt. Hou..."?
