Momochi (twin brother)
|Anime Debut||Episode 26|
|Voiced by||Yoshitsugu Matsuoka|
Chijiwa was one of two Basara twins or Twin Spider Tux.He is the exact opposite of Momochi in appearance. His hair is mostly black with a white streak on the left. He wears a black tux, black bow tie, red and white shirt on the inside and black shoes. His right eye is golden-coloured and his left eye is black with a red pupil and have a zig-zag crack on his lower left eye. He has a higher voice than Momochi. His Kuji-kiri is revealed that it is on his abdomen. So Momochi might have it on the same part as well.
He mostly smiles but he is quite picky to consume spell power though while in battle he adopts a more serious nature. Despite his previous personality quirk, he is always ready to accept his twin brother's advice. The two of them fully understand each other due to always being together. Chijiwa even broke down at the sight of his brother's dead body.
After the death of his brother, Chijiwa became unhinged as he created puppets of his late brother and spoke to them as if they were real. He also became vengeful shown in his final with the Twin Stars and was willing to kill all of their friends in his last moments but failed .
He and his twin brother, Momochi, engaged the twin star exorcists in battle and were able to resist their resonance before subduing them. They planned to absorb their spell power, but Sae intervened and freed them causing them to turn their attention to her but before they could attack they were all sent to the real world. Chijiwa and Momochi were soon realized they were surrounded by three of the heavenly commanders who offered aid to the Twin Star who denied the help. Chijiwa arrogantly asked if the were sure about this as Momochi brought up they were immune to the Resonance though they were shocked to hear the Twin Stars shrug this off. Rokuro and Benio stated since the two threatened Sae they had to settle this matter themselves. They resumed the fight, with Chijiwa and Momochi briefly pushing Rokuro back and subduing Benio whom they taunted. However, Rokuro got up and freed Benio allowing them to fire a resonance which the basara twin dodged though this turned out to be a distraction. As Rokuro and Benio then fired a more powerful resonance which caused Momochi to push Chijiwa out of the way. As a result of the attack, both were heavily injured by the Twin Star Exorcists and were taken back to Magano by Kuranashi who opened two Dragon Spots to rescue them. Chijiwa lost half his leg and started searching for his brother but Kuranashi found him first and thinking that Momochi would be useless killed him to absorb his Spiritual energy and give it to Chijiwa, healing his wounds and giving him more strength. Chijiwa broke down at the death of his brother before cursing the twin stars for their actions.
Chijiwa has become somewhat unhinged in the days after Momochi's death as he created puppets of his brothers and talking to them as if they were real was determined to avenge his brother putting the full blame on the Twin Star Exorcists. He was given a charm by Kuranashi which would allow him to go to the real world while covered in miasma. Chijiwa was killed by Rokuro Enmado in Episode 36 and weakly called out his brother's name as he was disintegrated.
