Hojo: Ni inflicts the Slow status on an enemy. It costs 1 Kaginawa tool to cast. Hojo: Ni has been tested to reduce an enemy's attack speed by 18%.
This is the upgraded version of the spell Hojo: Ichi. It has a faster casting time, is more accurate, and can last longer.
Translation: Kagi is a word for hook. Nawa means rope. A kaginawa is a grappling hook affixed to a rope used by ninja to aid in infiltrating a building or an area with high walls. It's used in the game to cast a Slow spell; the logic is that the rope is thrown around the enemy to restrict movement.
