I'll give it 3 episodes. The frog is completely unnecessary, but there's quite a bit of good stuff going on.

I was reminded of Queen's Blade every time I look at Cecil. The facial features are what set that off for me. Pretty neat episode. Seemed like there was a lot of stuff going for just the first episode.


OMG i kept thinking that too! I just kept saying, "Melona? is that you?"

Anyway, really liked this episode and the premise is great. It actually looks like it could have depth, especially with her mom? in prison for a reason we will hopefully learn.


Yes! Glad to see someone else thought so, too. I agree about the mother. That situation might be Cecil's driving force for working so hard to defend wizards whether good or bad. It has my interest for sure

a lot of characters
fair amount of magic action
a lot of things going on

Looks like this anime is an original and not a adaptation. WEll it showed a lot of things that makes you interested but I wished they slow down certain things .It kinda reminded me of the intro episode of Gatchaman Crowds and lost interest on that one becuase its a pretty shallow . But I hope more work on the main character will be done in this one.But the first episode tried to focus on Cecil.

Character design are interesting and colorful ,same character designer for Kite, Umetsu sensei .Looks great.

I cant figure out the female seiyuu because there are tons of them and they all sound similar except for 2 but the white hair dude Kajira is Daisuke Ono and the detective is Konishi san and the frog is Wakamoto san.

Its funny how this story is playing on the strong prejudice against wizards. Its actually getting to me.But hopefully they will reveal more about all the WUD

I will watch and see where direction goes .

Pretty good animation quality

The show is off to a pretty good start here. This show is totally Yasuomi Umetsu doing what he likes to do here, and it certainly is fun stuff if anything. Action, courtroom, and more action, and the main character being someone who looks like Mikura. Well, at least I will live long enough to eat dinner with this show because I'm up for at least seconds next week. That froggy familiar surse is something, and the action is really good.

Episode 1
Animation is top notch as expected by Arms.Actions scene are very fluid and awesome to see.

The police seem to be prejudices against magicians,as seen from that one guys case.

Hmm,can already tell that person she visit was her mom who committed a crime(possibly accidentally murdered her abusive husband) and she was sentenced to life in prison with no chance of parole even though she was innocent.And that was what inspired Cecil to become a magician lawyer,cause she wanted to help get her mom out of prison/help other magicians who have be falsely accused.

Also dat ass

Does the frog VA not sound like the narrator in Hayate: The Combat Butler or are my ears deceiving me?

Norio Wakamoto is having entirely too much fun with his career. "I am the vocal embodiment of Alexander Anderson, Charles zi Britannia, Viscious, and Oskar von Reuenthal; I WILL TOTALLY VOICE YOUR VAC-C-C-CUUM!"

(In case it wasn't entirely clear I think it's freaking awesome and he should keep it up. )

I feel like i'm in the minority of not hating the Frog guy (who yes sounds like the Narrator from Hayate).

I also agree with others though, Magicians seem to be hated, especially by the police force. But against the Magicians I haven't see anything other than destruction from them, even Cecil, when protecting herself ended up destroying how much to make that golem thing? The court just completely destroyed the guy in the courtroom (not saying he didn't really deserve it but still).
