The Secret Art of Hijutsu is the 46th episode of Tsubasa: Reservoir Chronicle.



Kiishimu confirms that there is indeed a feather in her world and blames it as the source of all the misfortune. She hopes that everything will be resolved if they can get the feather back. Syaoran finds it strange that even though Mokona’s not here, they are still able to understand each other’s words.

Back in Koryo, Mokona is proposing the idea that Syaoran and the others went to a reverse world that’s connected with the current one.

Kiishimu remembers that after the events of the last time Syaoran and company were here, she had brought Burugaru to this world. By chance, another feather floated into Burugaru’s hands, allowing him to stand up to Kiishimu’s powers. In fact, he now controls this world through the feather.

Kiishimu finds Chu'nyan and Sorata a place to hide while Syaoran and Kurogane go off to get the feather. Chu'nyan wants to go too, but Syaoran wants her to wait there and Kurogane points out that she can’t fight without her mirror, which is back in the other world.

After Syaoran and Kurogane leave, Kiishimu recalls a match with Chun Hyang’s mother, where Chun Hyang’s mother had used the Strongest Hijutsu. Chu'nyan wants to know about it, but Kiishimu says that she has to learn on her own what it is.

Syaoran and Kurogane attack the front gate of Burugaru’s castle and are met by hordes of soldiers. Kurogane aims for the gems on the soldiers foreheads – cutting them breaks the control on the soldier and returns life to the corresponding person from Chu'nyan ’s world.

Sakura is with Fai and Mokona at the same river that Chu'nyan and Sorata are hiding at, except in different worlds. With the power of the mirror, she is able to walk over the water and cross over worlds. Sakura gives Chu'nyan her mirror back.

Sorata sees all of this world’s villagers trying to protect their world from the humans and is reminded of himself. Knowing now that the people of this world were only being used, he apologizes to Kiishimu.

When this world’s villagers finds Chu'nyan's group, she jumps down and confronts them head on. Instead of using the mirror and her powers, Chu'nyan lays it down. She opens her arms and wants the villagers to believe in her, claiming that she believes in all of them. Kiishimu remembers that this is the same thing Chu'nyan ’s mother did, what she had called the Strongest Hijutsu. Not using power becomes true power.

Syaoran defeats Burugaru and is backed up by Kurogane and everyone else. He tries to make one last desperate attack at Syaoran, but is met instead by Syaoran’s foot.

Afterwards, Kiishimu proposes to Chu'nyan that they link their worlds since they don’t need to fight.

Having recovered another feather, Syaoran and company move on to the next world.
