Listed As Jutsu

Is this a jutsu or a tool? I personally think it sounds like a tool you focus chakra through, like asumas blades. (talk) 19:08, 10 June 2009 (UTC)

The databook lists it as ninjutsu. ~SnapperTo 19:14, 10 June 2009 (UTC)
Then maybe its a technique, and a seperate article is needed for the actual tool that the ninjutsu is focused through; You don't install ninjutsu onto a puppet/replacement arm, you install tools that can use ninjutsu. (talk) 19:17, 10 June 2009 (UTC)
Maybe the puppet is the tool? ~SnapperTo 19:19, 10 June 2009 (UTC)
I see it as a medium to which the jutsu is used through. It uses chakra, so, to me, its a Jutsu. Asuma's blades are a tool. When he uses Chakra Flow, it's a jutsu.SharinganMike (talk) 19:59, January 4, 2011 (UTC)

Continuous use?

I was under the impression that the mechanical light shield block could only be used once but in episode 280 Kankuro is shown using it twice in a row. Is this just non canon nonsense or is it that way in the manga too?--Aburame41 (talk) 21:06, August 5, 2013 (UTC)

When Chiyo used the shield against Sasori and the third kazekage puppet, the iron sand got into the joints of the puppet arms, thus disabling them. So unless the databook says something different or I have forgotten anything, the shield can be reused. Jacce | Talk | Contributions 04:38, August 6, 2013 (UTC)


I'm no expert at translation and I don't have any good software for it but from what I have seen, another way to read it seems to be "Mechanical Light Shield Seal". So does the grouping change how it's read or is it a way of saying that the technique uses seals to work as well as being a jutsu? I'm just curious and have no idea where to ask this question--Kyuu19 (talk) 08:59, September 16, 2014 (UTC)

It should be seal. I've no idea why our former translator translated 封 as block. • Seelentau 愛 10:32, September 16, 2014 (UTC)

Ah I see..does that mean that it should mention sealing somewhere about it? Since it seems like if that's the translation then it would be saying that seals play a part in how the jutsu works like how Sasori's use of seals on the Kazekage puppet lets it do Thousand Hands Manipulation Force.--Kyuu19 (talk) 11:20, September 16, 2014 (UTC)

It's not a seal as in a sealing technique, but more as in a blocking technique... or so. It's not a Fuinjutsu. • Seelentau 愛 11:30, September 16, 2014 (UTC)
