Compression (圧縮, Asshuku) is the 175th chapter of the Kekkaishi Manga written and illustrated by Yellow Tanabe.


The giant Kekkai containing the butterfly Ayakashi threatens to collapse, but Tokiko Yukimura is able to stabilize it. Sen Kagemiya uses his partial transformation to observe, and notices the butterflies are starting to transform again. This causes the Kekkai to swell, and Yoshimori floods it with his power. Sen then realizes that the four Kekkaishi are not filling equal roles: Yoshimori continuously pours in power, Tokiko suppresses the excess, Shigemori Sumimura maintains the Kekkai's stability, and Tokine regulates the power. Once the Kekkai is complete, the Kekkaishi began to move closer in order to compress it. Sen realizes that Tokiko has been the force behind the Kekkai all along. Tokiko is having trouble constantly controlling Yoshimori's power, and coats the entire Kekkai with her power, which speeds up the compression. Once the Kekkai is small enough, the Kekkaishi destroy it together.

The mysterious girl watches from the ground, and is glad that no serious harm was done. Suddenly, she sees a vision of Karasumori's destruction, which causes her to collapse.
