Neji successfully strikes Kidomaru with his Eight Trigrams Sixty-Four Palms. Kidomaru covers himself with a special gold version of his web at the last second, allowing him to avoid damage and prevent Neji from sealing his tenketsu. Knowing that he can’t win in close combat, Kidomaru begins to attack from afar. Neji is able to block his attacks with the Eight Trigrams of Heavenly Rotation. Surprised by Neji’s defense and ability to react to attacks from behind, Kidomaru tries to find a weak spot in his abilities. Activating his cursed seal, he attacks Neji with a web.
