Why are all the snipers in anime female? Chaika, Mine, Sinon, ect. Not that I'm opposed to that, but why are there no male snipers? Are having breasts a requirement?

Pretty much there's a certain law that prosecuted everyone involved if there is a human/monster crime. Human on human is handled by human police and courts. Monster on monster is the same. Interspecies(intercultural?) Conflict would have both sides punished if there was a fight or somesuch. Should humans kidnap monsters a human task force is sent.

>>
>>124459292
In the Mahouka universe where he snipes people.
>>
>>124459340
Using magic to detect and disintegrate people from a distance doesn't make you a sniper. If anything, he's WEAK against snipers, as per volume 8.
>>
>>124459463
>A sniper is a marksman or qualified specialist who operates alone, in a pair, or with a sniper team to maintain close visual contact with the enemy and engage targets from concealed positions or distances

Doesn't matter if he uses magic he's still sniping them faggot.
>>
>>124455851
cuz who the fuck wants another male in the anime? more females I say!!! MORE!!!
>>
>>124459504
>Maintain close visual contact with the enemy
He doesn't need, or get, visual confirmation 99% of the time, since he operates through MAGIC/ Information Dimension.
And more importantly
>Marksman
He doesn't have marksmanship, because he doesn't use a fucking GUN.
>>
>>124459463
>Ooguro Ryuuya is referred to as "Mahesvara" something the soldiers of the Great Asian Alliance are forbidden from mentioning since it is a nightmare best left untouched. He is mentioned to excel at extreme long distance precision attacks and over the horizon sniping, which other Strategic Magicians and regular Magicians seem to be unable to do.

While not a sniper in the regular sense, simply having the ability to kill others from ANY distance is enough to be a sniper. Plus if you think about it, its not like Onii-sama would ever miss with a regular sniper rifle anyway.
>>

I'd imagine if bows, slingshots, and throwing knifes count, aiming magic counts.
>>
>>124459619
>A marksman, or sharpshooter, is a person who is skilled in precision shooting, using projectile weapons

He has a gun that shoots Psions. It's a projectile weapon. He is a marksman.
>>
>>124456096
this piece of shit missed half his shots
>>
>>124459694
But that's the thing. You use a certain set of skills (aka Marksmanship) to aim and kill with a projectile weapon, whether it's a top of the line rifle or a fucking slingshot. You need an entirely different set of skills to target magic around an opponent. He's not a fucking sniper.
>>124459750
>He has a gun that shoots Psions
Do you even Mahouka?
>>
>>124455851
Not all snipers are female. Look at this masculine hunk from a currently airing show.
>>
>>124459829
Okay fine I was shitposting with the CAD being a gun shooting Psions.

But he did in fact use a sniper rifle to shoot a bullet out to the Great Asian Alliance fleet so he could use Material Burst on the bullet and destroy the fleet.
>>
>>124459829
He points, he does his spell, he shoots.
Someone points a gun, accounts for recoil, wind and bullet drop, then shoots.
There are different techniques when firing anything, as well as different things you have to account for. His magic doesn't lock on. He needs to aim.
>>
>>124459691
Just quoting from the wikia. The wikia is kinda shitty to quote from I know. Plus it would make complete sense if he was trained in marksmanship from the Yotsuba or the military. In all time of training, he probably learned to shoot a sniper anyway.
>>
>>124459846
Yuuji is probably the most masculine sniper ever.

>>124459829
Full Definition of MARKSMAN. : a person skilled in shooting at a mark or target.

>>
>>124459967
He probably CAN shoot a sniper rifle, just like he can probably scuba dive, freefall without a parachute, and generally be Japanese Magic Batman, but the issue here is that he doesn't. We haven't seen him do so even once.
>>124459953
And again, the methods for casting spells in Mahouka is a lot more complicated than "point and click", not to mention that just pointing in a direction isn't sniping to begin with. His magic DOES lock on. ALL magic in the verse needs to lock on.

Mahouka is a piece of shit and I don't like having to defend it, but its magic system is very well defined.

Psions don't come from the gun, they come from the magicians mind, and are sent into the gun (sometimes Onii-sama used it hand) and fires it.

You might have missed >>124459946
He actually uses a sniper rifle in the series
>>
>>124460188
The "gun" doesn't fire anything.

The "gun" shape is just for targeting purposes, it doesn't shoot psion bullets at all.

Onii-sama's magic disintegrates and deconstructs everything he aims at, not because he fires something that will dissolve the target, but because he makes the target dissolve at will.

That's why he can beat Accelerator, because no Vectors are needed for Onii-sama.
>>
>>124460222
I didn't miss it, that anon just doesn't know what the fuck he's talking about.
He didn't use a sniper rifle, he used a very specialised CAD called Third Eye which connects to a satellite to allow him to aim. Not least because the Chinese fleet at the time was in port 200km away.

>>124460285
When he uses Gram Demolition, he is infact using the gun to aim the psion bullets, since it is the only magic he uses that travels through real space instead of the information dimension.

Saying the gun doesn't "fire" the bullets isn't correct since they are just thought particles, but they are in a sense moving from the gun to the activation and magic sequences. At that point, its really just semantics.

>The first confirmed use was during the Defense Battle in Okinawa when Tatsuya used a newly developed sniper rifle from the JSDF in combination with Elemental Sight to shoot a bullet near to the ships of the Great Asian Alliance before using Material Burst upon the bullet.

The prototype Third Eye did shoot a bullet at GAA fleet near Okinawa. Since then it was modified to not need to since well Onii-sama doesn't need to.

>>124460824
>Mist Dispersion: This spell does not travel through physical space so it can be aimed through physical objects and is not limited by distance by any means.

Yes this works as you described.

>Gram Demolition: It uses compressed Psion particles to blow away the Activation Sequence. There are only two known "flaws" in the technique. First is that the psions travel in the physical realm (as opposed to the Information Dimension) and thus has limited range. Second, Gram Demolition is a highly inefficient technique that requires an incredibly high psion count, making it an incredibly rare technique.

It works exactly as I described. No he cannot snipe with it, but it does make him a marksmen.

MD uses the information dimension while GD used the physical realm. One works regardless of distance, so it does not "fire" anything, while the other "fires" psion bullets though the physical realm but is very limited.

Onii-sama has infact created a method to "fire" psion bullets through the ID. This is Far Strike. This is the only magic he can use to snipe others regardless of distance YET he is still firing a psion bullet.
