Funeral (葬列, Sōretsu) is the 96th chapter of the Kekkaishi Manga written and illustrated by Yellow Tanabe.


The Night Troop holds a funeral for Gen Shishio. As they carry out the casket, Atora Hanashima breaks down and begins crying Gen's name.

Ichirou Ougi observes the funeral procession, and is disappointed that all Kokuboro managed to do was kill Gen before retreating. He resents all the effort he put into helping them.

Though he knows he likely won't be welcome, Masamori goes to the funeral held by Gen's family, taking Yoshimori with him. Masamori is greeted by Gen's father, but they are quickly interrupted by Ryo Shishio, who demands that Masamori leave, blaming him for Gen's death. Masamori returns the unopened letters that Ryo wrote to Gen, explaining that he didn't give them to Gen because he thought it was too soon. Ryo is greatly upset by this, because Gen never realized that she wanted to apologize to him. Yoshimori tells Ryo that Gen wanted to apologize to her, and that he was in Gen's debt. Ryo and her father are startled to realize that Gen had made a friend.

After leaving the funeral, Masamori invites Yoshimori to blame him, saying the Gen needed a purpose in life to keep living. Yoshimori swears to crush Kokuboro. Masamori says that others are also angry, and he will be the one to take command.
