Actually, was it established that it was a direct or indirect causation? That is Battler coming back -> Rokkenjima Tragedy?

Or was his coming back and the Rokkenjima Tragedy a correlation?

This is important because it could be:
Something else (i.e. say, someone's plans) --> Rokkenjima Tragedy AND Battler coming back.

In this case, it could be that if Battler doesn't come back then a Rokkenjima Tragedy occurs, but maybe in a vastly different way that we've never seen in the stories before.
