Dark Release: Strangling Sphere (冥遁・絞首 球, Meiton: Koushutama) is an area of effect style of Dark Release used by Chinka.


By spreading dark release chakra into the environment around her, Chinka can create a zone where the use of chakra is prohibited, meaning it will be instantly absorbed upon usage. And anyone who lies in the sphere of effect where have their chakra sapped from at a moderate pace.

This chakra can be manipulated in the area around Chinka, it doesn't have to return to Chinka in order to be used. Focusing and using her chakra control (as a Dark Release master, it was seen to be necessarily to bring out its full capabilities), she can shape the chakra into whatever she needs and turn this back on the opponent, much like the Judgement technique of Dark Release. This chakra can be used for powerful genjutsu done with the attackers' own chakra. It can also be used to fire back a wave of chakra at its most basic, among other things, within the sphere of effect.

As an abnormal Dark Release user, Chinka also possesses the ability to produce darkness, something she can incorporate into this technique to increase its capabilities and lower visibility within the realm she creates.

Also, Chinka has also developed countermeasures to certain types of chakra being absorbed through the sphere. (More coming soon)
