Improvisational Poem of Slaughter (屠殺の即興詩 Tosatsu no Sokkyōshi?) is an impromptu incantation or poem conducted by the powerful Unrestricted Spell Masters, the Flame Haze "Chanter of Elegies" Margery Daw and her Crimson Lord "Claw and Fangs of Violation" Marchosias, before the activation of Unrestricted Spells. The poems are references to nursery rhymes.

In the anime, the spell's name is censored to Improvisational Poem of Enclosed Killing (堵殺の即興詩 Tosatsu no Sokkyōshi?) in order to not violate the television broadcasting code.

Background[]

Ordinarily, large-scale Unrestricted Spells need an Unrestricted Spell Insignia to be constructed or power to be distributed or other such elaborate work. However, this work is done instantly as among the Insignias stored inside Marchosias' Divine Vessel Grimoire, one with a wording which fits the poem is chosen and acts as a booster before activating the spell.

Uses[]

Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John[]

Used to lure out Shana. Torches within the spreading ripples are changed into the energy source, and an extensive probe of the area is conducted.

In the manga, the Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John spell was used in presumably another city before Margery arrived in Misaki City. It has different lyrics.

In the manga's Viz translation, this poem was changed to be It's Raining, It's Pouring.
