Memories and Hatred (追憶と憎悪 "Tsuioku to Zōo" ) is the 10th chapter of the Kekkaishi Manga written and illustrated by Yellow Tanabe
Yoki attempts to eat Hakubi, but notes that just as with Madarao, the body vanishes in his mouth. Yomi suspects that the dogs' true bodies are stored elsewhere. Tokine remains trapped in a hole beneath a large boulder, equipped with talismans that repel Kekkaishi techniques. Yomi assures Yoki that Karasumori will make him stronger, and that no one will ever insult them again. Unable to remove the boulder, Tokine instead uses Kekkai to dig underground, creating a tunnel that allows her to escape the pit. Tokine tries to send a Shikigami bird to get help, but Yoki spears it with his tail, destroying it. Yomi reveals that since she has a hostage, Tokine is expendable. Yoki attacks with his tail, but Tokines blocks it with a Kekkai. Tokine demands to know what Yomi has done with Yoshimori, but Yomi repeatedly evades the question, ordering Yoki to stomp on Tokine's Kekkai.
Yoshimori wakes up in what appears to be a cave with his arms tied. He hears Yomi taunting Tokine and insulting Tokio, calling his death meaningless. Tokine's Kekkai becomes unstable as her emotions waver and Yoki's blows increase in power. Yoshimori suddenly bursts from the shell on Yoki's back, escaping the ropes and destroying a large portion of Yoki's leg with a Kekkai. Yoshimori orders Yomi to take back what she said about Tokine's father: fighting to protect the things he loved was not meaningless.
