As he regains consciousness, he discovers himself reborn as an infant in a realm where sorcery and swords reign. However, he still retains vivid recollections of his past life.

Disturb Magic is a unique and unclassified magic in the realm of Mushoku Tensei.

It works by canceling the magical energies used by an enemy, leading to their spells dissipating before turning into an identifiable form.

This intricate technique disturbs the essence of magic, preventing its consolidation and even scattering it into inefficacy.

The influence of Disturb Magic is localized, focusing solely on a specific region of the target’s body.

Now, let’s have a look at the characters who can use Disturb Magic.
