Since it’s break week, I’m working on stuff that I’ve left aside for way longer than I should have…
- Lagena Signatoria – the sealing spell used against Hermann, the lexicon entry of which has interesting implications with…
- Negi’s Ninth Combat Spell – …this, because the Bible actually hints at what it does
Since these two entries bring it up, I’ll mention it here first; IMO, to differentiate between the different ‘demonic beings’ (this’ll be in the Creatures page):
悪魔 akuma – Daemon (straight from the lexicon)
魔族 mazoku – Demon / Demon race
Easy to confuse, I know, but consider this: Nodoka’s name-revealing artifact is based on a Japanese tale regading an oni, and yet it’s translated into Daemon in Latin. This isn’t even getting into the 鬼神兵 (those giant glowing humanoids) which should technically be Daemon Soldier going by the previous translation, but the term 鬼神 (demonic god) has been applied to Ryoumen-Sukuna as well. Is Sukuna just special because it’s powerful? Where the hell do the Daemon Soldiers fit in? Aaaargh.
In any case, I’m also working at this:
And… that’s about it.
