Magical courtrooms are amazing~
Finally Wizard Barristers is out! I swear after seeing the trailers I was blown away by the eye popping visuals and of all the studios this is done by Arms who brought us Hagure Yuusha no Estetica, Hyakka Ryouran: Samurai Bride, Maoyuu Maou Yuusha and Queens Blade? Yeaaah there is only one series on that list that was even entertaining…
Magical court is in session
This dude was crazy!
No pantsu shot for you~
Whenever there is a crime committed in any anime series we never really get to see what happens after the criminals are brought into custody minus Psycho Pass which skips the courtroom all stuff all together with their crazy Dominators, but in the case of Wizard Barristers we actually get to follow a team of wizard defendants that want to protect the “criminal” in question; however I know that Wizard Barristers is not the first courtroom themed anime series because if you saw Danganronpa you might as well consider that a court room themed anime as well! Damn now I really want a Index/Railgun spinoff anime that follows Judgment and the Academy City criminal system minus some of the more known characters.
So what happened with this first episode? I guess this was more of an introduction to the world of Wizard Barristers where humans and magicians co-exist in the same world along; however I can tell a lot of humans do not like wizards in general so we have some obvious discrimination going on! That said the main focus appears to be Cecil taking on the role of a “Benmashi” which is technically a lawyer? Also it appears that Cecil’s mom or someone she knows is locked up in jail? I guess there is some huge back story we will learn eventually and speaking of Cecil I loved watching her powers at work to create that giant mecha. So what did you enjoy about the first episode? Personally I just loved seeing every magic power animated like that short action scene at the start and of course the perverted frog familiar! He was so damn funny.
Extra magical fun
Norio Wakamoto voices the super pervy frog!
Cecil was asking for it…
All the magic in this series looks so fantastic!
Whoa that was some fantastic animation for the first episode of Wizard Barristers but of course with most of the premiere episodes the artwork is usually super fantastic, but I just wonder how long this studio can keep that level of animation quality going? I mean either way I am completely sold for watching more of this! Besides all of that I found the characters to be interesting and the various magical powers shown in the opening has me so excited!
Cecil is all dressed up for work.
