There are two magic systems at work in this novel. Over the course of the translation I have struggled how to translate them in a proper way as magic in Nidoume no Jinsei wo Isekai de hasn’t been properly explained up until now.
- Majutsu (魔術) – This is the magic Renya uses. Basically it seems to include all elemental magic (fire, wind, earth and water). It will be translated as sorcery.
- Houjutsu ( 法術) – This is a magic system that remains obscure at the moment. Rona’s healing and the investigation magic at the city gates fall under this category. The term itself apparently originates from Chinese mystic terminology. The kanji mean (法) law/method/system (術) arts/skills/magic. As it’s used for magic here, I will translate it as magic arts or short (system) arts, e.g. Rona’s healing magic becomes “healing arts.”
