- Why does magic take the form of weapons? 2 answers
I understand plenty the visual effect of Tatsuya and Crimson Prince shooting magic bullets unto each other and other magical shooting plethora of effects.
But it seems to me that all those spells could be cast without those gun-shaped CAD wihtout much fuss.
Is there any explanation to why there are gun-shaped CAD, from the point of view of an advantage to the magician, or is it just for visual dramatic effect?
