Mikami holding three types of ofudas

An ofuda (お札) is a type of amulet or talisman used by Ghost Sweepers. It is a small piece of paper with varying power, size, and price, being mainly used to exorcize supernatural beings and create barriers. It can be affixed to an area or spirit, or thrown like a weapon. Due to ofudas being made of paper, they are vulnerable to water and fire, and they can be cut. A damaged ofuda will have its power weakened or lost.

Hamafuda Machine GunEdit

Hamafuda Machine Gun

Hamafuda Machine Gun

Hamafuda Machine Gun (破魔札マシンガン) is a weapon available to the Occult G Men. As the name implies, it is a machine gun that fires hamafudas, making it easier to hit the target and overpower it with a high number of hamafudas. While highly effective, Mikami considers it a waste as hamafudas are expensive.[5]
