A Day in the Life (Part 1) (良守の日々(前編) "Yoshimori no Hibi (Zenpen)" ) is the 17th chapter of the Kekkaishi Manga written and illustrated by Yellow Tanabe


Yoshimori trains in the backyard by launching a large boulder into the air with one Kekkai, then catching it with a smaller one. Shigemori notices and brags that he was able to shatter the boulders in his youth. Yoshimori is shocked, unaware that Shigemori is lying: the boulder is actually filled with iron and virtually unbreakable. Yoshimori vows to be better than Shigemori by breaking two boulders within a month. Shigemori tells him to put a Kekkai around the yard so that he doesn't disturb the neighbors, but is inwardly impressed that Yoshimori was able to lift the boulder so high.

Madarao emerges that night and looks for Yoshimori, finding him training in the dojo. Madarao observes as Yoshimori tries to form a Kekkai on a target, but his aim is off and the Kekkai is too large. Madarao says he'll never beat Tokine at that rate, and Yoshimori vows to get better. Madarao says that Tokine knows her limits, but that Yoshimori doesn't have to worry about them.

Yoshimori was so busy training that he forgot to take a nap before leaving home for his Kekkaishi duties. Tokine spots him on the way to Karasumori and says he looks tired. Yoshimori insists he will defeat her. Yoshimori spots an Ayakashi, but it moves quickly and is able to avoid him easily. Yoshimori finally corners the Ayakashi, revealing it to be Hiwatari, an ice type. Yoshimori assumes it is not very powerful. However, Hiwatari forms a ice shard with its tails, gradually increasing its size, and then fires the shard at Yoshimori. Much to his surprise, the shard drills straight through his Kekkai, nearly hitting his head.
