A Dangerous Man ( 危険な男 "Kiken na Otoko" ) is the sixth chapter of the Kekkaishi Manga written and illustrated by Yellow Tanabe
At school, Yoshimori wonders if he should tell Tokine about his suspicions of Tatsumi Mino. Hiromu tries to tell Yoshimori about a mass fainting incident where the students involved lost their short-term memories, but Yoshimori is too distracted to listen.
At home that night, Yoshimori imagines a scenario he might use to warn Tokine, but his imagination (which suggests that Tokine might like a dangerous man) gets the best of him. he senses a disturbance and rushes to school with Madarao, meeting Tokine and Hakubi along the way. Tokine already suspects Mino, but Yoshimori mistakes her meaning and thinks she is interested in him romantically, which leaves him greatly distracted. Mino confronts them inside the school, and Yoshimori realizes that Tokine suspected Mino of not being a normal human. Mino wields a trio of large snakes, and explains that he was trying to gain nourishment from humans, but they were no good. However, he senses that the Kekkaishi are different, and desires to use them for nourishment. One of Mino's snakes attacks, while another defends him, making it impossible to form a Kekkai around him. Yoshimori damages the attacking snake, and Tokine notes that Mino took some of the damage as well. However, the snake is quickly healed. Tokine suspects the snakes aren't Ayakashi, and Hakubi confirms this, though he still smells an Ayakashi among them. Hakubi spots a Kugutsu bug, a parasite that feeds on and controls ayakashi. Yoshimori holds the snake in place while Tokine destroys the bug, freeing Mino from its control but also knocking him out. After waking up, Mino is horrified by what he did under the bug's control. Tokine reassures him that it wasn't his fault and asks him to keep their nightly activities a secret. Mino is greatly moved by Tokine's kindness and tries to charm her, much to Yoshimori's disapproval.
