actually, not knowing the exact setting and details really make it hard to exercise our creativity.

other random names I can think of (some terms are self-made):
テクノ魔法少女 (tekuno mahou shoujo) (Techno-Magical Girl)
新テクノ魔法少女 (shin tekuno mahou shoujo) (New Techno-Magical Girl)
科学の魔法少女 (kagaku no mahou shoujo) (Magical Girl of Science)
テクノ魔法使い (tekuno mahou tsukai) (Techno-Magic User/Practicioner)
テクノ魔導士 / テクノ魔術師 (tekuno madoushi / tekuno majutsushi) (Techno Mage / Sorceress / Magician)
ガゼット魔術師 (gajetto majutsushi) (Gadget Magician)
現代魔学少女 (gendai magaku mahou shoujo) (Girl of Modern Magical Arts)

ok, it's pretty much endless.


and, perhaps, it's not that "Non-Magical Magical Girl" doesn't click in Japanese, it's just that at my level, I can't think of anything that doesn't need a verb conjugate.
You've been extremely helpful, guy! Thanks for the tremendous hints! Just FYI, my fanfic piece is a take-off of http://voiceactingalliance.com/board...33#post1089033
Thanks!
