Locked inside the Horizon of the Captivating Skandha domain, the jujutsu sorcerers fight for their lives against Dagon's endless swarm of man-eating fish shikigami. Maki, Nanami, and even special grade 1 sorcerer Naobito are at the mercy of the domain's can't miss attacks. Just when their struggle becomes hopeless, help arrives with a domain of their own!
Dagon traps Nanami, Naobito, and Maki inside his Domain Expansion: Horizon of the Captivating Skandha. Inside the coastal domain, Nanami and Maki are both suddenly bitten by piranha shikigami. The domain's guaranteed hit creates fish shikigami that don't exist until they hit the target.
Naobito is easily able to counter the domain's can't miss attack with his Secret Art: Falling Blossom Emotion. It's an anti-domain technique passed down by the Big Three Sorcerer Families. Instead of the user expanding their own domain like Simple Domain, Falling Blossom Emotion counter-attacks with cursed energy the moment a domain's guaranteed hit makes contact.
Dagon figured that the head of the Zenin Family had some kind of trick up his sleeve considering his skill level. He decides to focus seventy percent of his power on Noabito and the other thirty percent on Nanami. Unleashing Technique Release: Death Swarm, Dagon calls upon a swarm of shikigami to attack his foes. Knowing the shikigami will instantly eat them alive, he warns Maki to attack without hesitation. His warning is interrupted when the shikigami abruptly appears to devour him first.
Naobito resists the wave of shikigami using Fallen Blossom Emotion, but he still recognizes this situation does not favor him. He notices the force of the shikigami isn't slowing down at all and wonders about the technique connected to the domain. His thoughts are abruptly stopped when Dagon hides in the stream of shikigami and punches Naobito high into the air. The shikigami were blocking Naobito's view and they continue to attack while he's in the air. Dagon reveals Death Swarm is an endless stream of shikigami as more and more appear to devour Naobito.
The only remaining sorcerer is also bitten by a few shikigami, leaving her unable to move or fight back. Dagon turns to Maki and says she's the weakest here. He quickly gets behind Maki and kicks her hard into the forest area on the beach. Despite the heavy hit, Maki survives and tells the octopus to finish her in one hit if he's going to insult her strength. Maki wishes she had met up with Megumi first and Dagon threatens to give her the same fate as the other two if she's going to resist.
Suddenly, Domain Expansion: Chimera Shadow Garden is activated. A geyser of liquid shadow erupts from the ocean near the beach, getting Dagon and Maki's attention instantly. Megumi appears from the geyser right on time and calls out to Maki. He extends his shadow out to her, allowing Maki to pick up the special grade cursed tool: Playful Cloud. Grateful for the help, Maki tells Megumi that he really is a cocky brat.
