Mana Method魔言術式マナメソッド Mana Mesoddo[1] is the Heart Kingdom's unique magic technique for shaping rune arrays from natural mana and is the basis for generating True Magic 「真魔法 Shin Mahō」.[2]


Over the centuries, the citizens of the Heart Kingdom have adapted to the country's strong natural mana[3] and developed this unique magic technique to channel that mana into spells, increasing their strength and abilities.[4] Since it uses natural mana, the technique is best suited to magic attributes that can be found in nature, such as the four major elements and plant-based attributes.[5][6] Nevertheless, this technique can also be applied to unnatural attributes, such as Painting, Sealing, and Spatial Magic.[7][8][9]

Leopold's giant array

The user forms runes out of natural mana and arranges them to form instructions for their magic to follow, such as "pursue the target" or "grow bigger". These arrangements can be applied directly to a spell or be formed into a larger magic circle. Simple instructions only require simple arrangements, but larger, more complex designs can create more powerful spells and effects.[10][11][12]

Mages of the Fifth Stage and below are too weak to form the runes properly, and only mages of the Third Stage or higher are skilled enough to use the technique in combat scenarios.[13]

True Magic[]

At its peak, Mana Method focuses the mana of nature and generates the real element, known as True Magic. For example, Lightning Magic becomes True Lightning Magic and generates real lightning.[10] Because it utilizes the vast amount of mana in nature, the strength of the resulting spell is far beyond what the mage would be able to produce by themselves.[14] Due to this boost in power, True Magic can defeat low-ranking devils with ease, even if the mage is not Arcane Stage.[15][5]
