To make this clearer, Traditional magic, being magic that requires wands(usually wooden) and incantations for the spell to work properly. Also included are such things like divination(looking into the future), potion brewing, spells that involve the forces of nature(like water dragons) or the such. A good example of traditional magic would be from such series like cardcaptors where cards act as a medium for magical powers. Or even more precisely, tho not anime, Harry Potter. They both contain good examples of practical magical aspects that apply to daily life, like magically reparing a broken plate, or altering the enviroment to your liking or even stoping time so you dont arrive late for class.

Conversely technological magic would be almost like magic is another form of energy/science. Where spells and effects intertwined with technology, with one affecting the other. Esentially the only aspects of this form of magic would be used for military practices or as a resource. A good example of this kind of magic would be the Nanoha series, and Magic Knight Rayearth (giant mecha uses magic as a powersouce)

So with all this being said, anime fans which do you prefer?

Both are cool, but if i have to choose, i'd say technological magic

Because science is ABSOLUTE, it'd never go wrong if the user understand them perfectly

Traditional feels more calm, focused and balanced.... its more natural to all living things.... while mechanical is raw, uncontrolable ...like a double edged sword that does harm to the wielder as well and its usually one much greater than to the enemy.

I`d say traditional because I`m sure techno magic probably has certain unkown consequences to using it. The only example of this that I can think of is from the Tales of Symphonia and Tales of Phantasia games and OVAs. According to sources inside the games techno magic (or magitechnology as they put it) may be extremely powerful, but it eats away the world`s life force thus causing a lot of problems for everyone such as massive droughts. Also, as shown in Tales of Phantasia, if you loose control of techno magic it can produce terrible consiquences. I`m not saying that traditional magic can`t be dangerous but after playing these games, a traditional mage is probably the better choice.

You have to swing an old stick and cast an spell
