Bakudō #9. Hōrin (崩輪, Disintegrating Circle) is a Kidō spell.


Using their index and middle fingers, the practitioner generates an orange-hued tendril with spiraling yellow patterns, which ensnares and immobilizes the opponent as the tendril wraps around their body. The end of it remains in the hands of the practitioner, allowing them to control the path of the tendril before and after capture. The tendril can connect with another one of itself, if both have captured a target, and bind them together.[1]


"Disintegrate, you black dog of Rondanini!! Look upon yourself with horror and tear out your own throat!"

"自壊せよロンダニーニの黒犬!! 一読し・焼き払い・自ら喉を掻き切るがいい!"[1]

" Jikai seyo rondanīni no kokken! ! Ichidoku shi yakiharai mizukara nodo o kaki kiru ga ī!"
