Blast Ash (Japanese: 黒妖陣ブラスト・アッシュ, Kanji translation: Black Bewitching Ranks, Romaji: burasuto asshu) is a offensive black magic[1] spell.

The caster makes a black void appear in a certain area, and anything alive or possessing an astral body is turned into ash. Inanimate objects such as the ground, buildings, and equipment are not affected; the spell has an effect of a relatively large area (somewhat bigger than an adult's arm span in diameter[2]), making this one of the few black magic spells which can be used in cramped alleys and town squares.

Unlike some other spells, Blast Ash can be cast at a place which the sorcerer cannot see at that moment, such as behind his/her back. The only requirement seems to be that the caster must be able to visualize the target spot in sufficient detail for the incantation to work.[3]
