Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei [No LN & Manga Spoiler] [Mainline + Spin-off]
Magician is someone who possesses 杜agic,・a systematized technological skill. Very few people are suited to wield magic; genetics plays a pivotal role. In Japan, as in other countries, international-grade licenses have been introduced as part of the magician management system. The government is pouring its resources into developing powerful magicians.
CAD is a device for streamlining / accelerating magic sequences, imprinted with the activation code for casting a magic spell. An indispensable tool for the modern magician which has supplanted such traditional methods and tools as incantations and amulets.Widely referred to as 鼎ADs・or simply 電evices," they come in all shapes and sizes.There are two main types: the specialized CAD, and the all-purpose CAD.
Magic Highschool is the name that the National Magic University Affiliated High Schools, established in order to train magicians, are commonly known by. There are nine schools in all across the country, from First High School in the Kanto region to Ninth High School in Kumamoto. As the name implies, these are educational institutions affiliated with the National Magic University, and in exchange for receiving government subsidies, it is their duty to reap a certain level of success (to provide a steady stream of graduates bound for the National Magic University or other advanced specialized training institutions for magic technicians.)

2. Second High School - Nishinomiya, Hyogo Prefecture (Kinki)
3. Third High School - Kanazawa, Ishikawa Prefecture (Hokuriku)
4. Fourth High School - Hamamatsu, Shizuoka Prefecture (Tokai)
5. Fifth High School - Sendai, Miyagi Prefecture (Tohoku)
6. Sixth High School - Izumo, Shimane Prefecture (San-in)
7. Seventh High School - Kochi, Kochi Prefecture (Shikoku)
8. Eighth High School - Otaru, Hokkaido (Hokkaido)
9. Ninth High School - Kumamoto, Kumamoto Prefecture (Kyushu)
First High School is The Magic High School located in Hachioji, Tokyo, popularly known as "First High." An elite institution that, year after year, sends the greatest number of graduates to the Magic University, it is run under a two-tiered system, Course 1 and Course 2. There is a maximum of 200 students per grade, and 25 per class. Course 1 is comprised of Classes A ~ D, whereas Course 2 is comprised of Classes E ~ H.
Blooms/ Weeds is slang terms for, respectively, the Course 1 and Course 2 students at First High. An eight-petal emblem adorns the uniforms of only the Course 1 students, and because of this garland design, the Course 1 students came to be known as "Blooms." "Weed" is a derogatory term for the Course 2 students, and as such, is officially banned from use, but a considerable number of students still use it.
Eidos originally is a Greek philosophy term. Under modern-day magic, Eidos refers to the information bodies pertaining to all phenomena. The force of a magic sequence overwriting an Eidos is called "interference strength," and in modern-day magic, this is one area by which one's magical prowess is measured.
Idea originally is a Greek philosophy term. Under modern-day magic, "Idea" refers to the platform upon which an Eidos is imprinted. It is, so to speak, a dimension running parallel to the physical dimension which we live, and the Eidos of all phenomena is imprinted on this dimension.
Psion is non-physical entities, also known as Thought Particles
. Like Pushions, their true nature is yet to be discovered, but the leading hypothesis is that they are particles that give shape to thought and intent. Ordinarily, it is Psions that are used in magic, and modern-day magic emphasizes Psion control.
Pushion is non-physical entities, also known as Spirit Particles. Their existence has been confirmed, but their true nature and function remain shrouded in mystery. Although it is still merely a hypothesis, they are thought to be particles that give shape to the emotions produced by intent and thought.
Activation Sequence is the blueprints for magic spells. Modern-day magicians save these sequences to their CADs in compressed form. When activating a spell, the magician transmits Psions to the CAD to receive an activation sequence, from which a magic sequence is then constructed. Since this involves a vast amount of information, the magician himself can normally only process it semi-automatically within the constraints of his own Magic Calculation Area.
Magic Sequence is an information body constructed from a magician's Psions. When a magic sequence interferes with, and overwrites, an Eidos, it can alter real-world phenomena. However, because of the world's restorative power to maintain temporal continuity, magic sequences cannot be used infinitely.
