Spell (呪文, Jumon) are the words that enact the supernatural phenomena of magic. Not just a keyword that ‘activates’ supernatural power, but in itself they hold the power and “soul” of words. However, spells are not simply ‘words of power’; they are full rituals which must be recited in verse, containing the will of the caster. Spells are the circuits which allow the caster to shape ‘the power of words’ in a form he most desires. Spells take the form of pre-specified phrases that call forth certain spirits that cause said effects, offering the user's mana as payment on a contractual basis: The stronger the spirit called, the more mana has to be paid.
