Skirmishes (小競り合い, Kozeriai) is the 101st chapter of the Kekkaishi Manga written and illustrated by Yellow Tanabe.
Yoshimori takes the three boys in his training spot behind the temple. One invites him to spar with them. The boys introduce themselves as Night Troop members Shu Akitsu, Dai Yaegashi, and Sen Kagemiya. Shu adds that he and Sen are Ayakashi Majiri. Sen starts the spar before Yoshimori is ready, suggesting that three on one should be not problem for a Legitimate Successor. Yoshimori notices that Dai is the slowest and targets him first, but Dai vanishes from the Kekkai once captured. Yoshimori is surrounded by multiple copies of Dai. Yoshimori protects himself from Dai's throwing needles with a Kekkai, but notices that the needles only come from one direction. He realizes the clones are illusions, and captures the Dai who threw the needles, causing the clones to fade. Yoshimori then chases Shu, who suddenly reveals two large, bat-like wings and flies out of his reach. While Yoshimori is distracted, Sen appears behind him and places claws against his throat.
Sen says he expected more from a Legitimate Successor. Yoshimori abruptly activates a thin aura that destroys Sen's claws and drives him away. Yoshimori demands to know what they're thinking, as Karasumori is dangerous and one of their friends is dead. Sen says there is no point in worrying, since Gen Shishio was stronger than them, and there is no chance of them defeating someone stronger than Gen. Sen even points out that they have the same experience of watching Gen's back as he faced a strong opponent. Yoshimori swears he will defeat Kokuboro and take revenge for Gen.
