- Jossed. The folks at the Spacebattles forums analysed the canon material and made it clear that all the void familiar runes do is suppress feelings of homesickness. The void mages have to gain the love, affection, and loyalty of their familiars the old fashioned way. Enforcing loyalty and affection is what the normal familiar runes do. If the void familiar runes enforced loyalty and affection, Brimir wouldn't have been killed by his own Gandalfr to keep him from genociding the elves.
- Yes but what does it mean to suppress homesickness? If Louise is being an abusive bitch he is likely going to want to go home. So does it suppresses the feelings that make him want to go home and thus like Pavlov and his dogs does he begins to think he likes the abuse and the source of it. So if the master is a normal person and not an abusive sociopath they are fine both are relatively well off yes their feelings of home sickness are suppressed but if life is otherwise fine or at least the master is fairly kind to them, all that happens is not wanting to go home and being fine with staying. but if they are cruel and abusive then the spell has to keep suppressing the desire to leave making them think they like what is being done to them and who is doing it to them.
- Louise's first spell is to summon Saito. What does Saito do the next day? He starts a fight with Guiche, and continues even when he's losing badly (he won, but he had no way of knowing he would).
- At his first appearance, Cromwell is content to wield his magic ring from the a safe distance, while he stays quiet. At the end of season 1, he gets a face full of Louise's stupid ray and starts monologuing in front of Tabitha and Kirche where Guiche can sneak up behind him with a big stick.
- Louise's spell at the end of season 1 had a massive AoE effect which made everyone noticeably stupider for season 2.
- At the beginning of season 2, when Louise gives Saito the glasses, she blasts him over and over again. Each time, the very next thing he does is provoke her into blasting him again. When they see the princess, it's been a while since Louise blasted Saito so the stupid has worn off, making him at least smart enough not to look at the princess and trigger the glasses. When she does get him to look at the princess, she blasts him with an even bigger explosion — which seems to knock even more stupid into Saito, whose next action is to make a pass at the princess.
- Made of Win
- Funny, but Wrong. Derflinger is an elf weapon. Sasha, the first Gandlfr, who forged Derfliger, was an elf. In the light novels, other elves using living blades appear.
- Confirmed, but usually ignored.
This goes with the theory that time passes in Zn T Earth at the same rate as IRL Earth.
They kept it secret because 1) Without the Gandalfr she could not use her abilities anyway and 2) They felt that letting her struggle with ordinary magic would give her the humilty to use her powers responsibly when the time finally did come.
- Technically speaking, every country with a void mage always had one; at the very moment he/she dies, the powers pass to another person with appropriate blood. But that person was incapable of using any genuine spells without having access to any of the founder's artefacts, meaning that the academy had at least a few students in the past who just couldn't use magic and never learned to do it, making it possible that they saw the possibility but thought it unlikely.
Fury crafting is just a different type of magic, its been confirmed in the Codex that the people and some of the Critters are from other worlds, like how stuff from are world goes to Zero no Tsukaima world.
Of course this means the Vord are coming, to eat them.
- The main spellbook (actually the only one we know of) is called the Prayer Book.
- The spells take much longer to cast and explicitly involve arias, while the regular magic is more or less imposing your will on the world with a thought.
- The first and last known user of the Void allegedly ascended after death.
