  • Not bad, but could be better (2.5)
    I have to mention again that I don't award stars easily, so 2.5 stars from me is not terrible.

    Let's start off by saying that Wizard Barristers is not bad. Its problem is that its kind of middling. It straddles the line between forgettable and pretty good.

    The story is set in a world where wizards exist but are treated as second-class citizens subject a different set of laws and prosecuted ...

  • Wizard Barristers: Magical Coffee the Animation
    Wizard Barristers is in essence the worst anime I've watched in my short anime life-span. To me, meandering is the worst crime an anime can commit, even worse than being genuinely bad. Which is really the show's problem; that it can't do anything better than just okay.

    Cecil as the main character is nothing special, she's regarded as one of the brightest witches of her age yet is a complete ...

  • Love the art, story is meh
    I love the art of this show, however the story is too layered. I really like complex shows, but this one just seemed like they wanted to cram as many genres as they could into it. I would like to see this show continue mainly because of the gigantic cliff-hanger at the end.

    Good potential, but fails to deliver.
    Wizard Barristers has an interesting premise which I feel sadly does not get explored appropriately; it's a great idea with lacking implementation. Where Magical Lawyers could really of gone in any direction it falls flat with a trite 'chosen one' prophecy instead of giving exposition to a world less mundane. Characterization also suffers here with no one behaving in any professional capacity ...

  • A slow-motion trainwreck
    The series had a concept with great potential to explore issues like prejudice (many of the discriminations seen against Wuds apply to ethnic Koreans in Japan) and the nature of justice, but it all gets lost in the shuffle. The first couple episodes were ok, but the series quickly departs from the law procedural premise into a magical fighting series featuring Magitek Mechas that apparently ate ...

  • Loved it - not sure why so many didn't
    I'm not sure why there are so many negative reviews... I really really liked Wizard Barristers and I'm sad there's not going to be a second season, especially because it set itself up for one. Honestly this has been one of my favorite animes. The writing is great. If you're hesitant about it b/c of reading negative things, just watch the first episode.

  • Would Definately Watch !!!
    Well to start off I was not very interested in this anime at all. my initial thought was that it would be just like all the other wizard animes out there; but it was completely different ! Which surprised me I absolutely loved all their familiars and that it had somewhat of a Anti-Christian/ Mystery theme. Just to clarify I am not anti-Christian, I am just trying to state that it was very ...

  • Yet another show that's only on the cusp of greatness....
    Sooooo-so close, but this show just didn't cut it. The characters were either waaaaaaayyyyyyy overdone or they were as plain as a crisp white sheet of unsoiled paper. The magic angle was fun until it got all legalized and over-regulated (that's a great way to suck the fun right out of magic right there). Add to that the fact that the plot had no driving force throughout the first several episodes ...

  • Interesting concept, poor execution. And did they lose their animator?
    I loved the artwork. I enjoyed the voice actors. I absolutely loved the interaction between characters. That's why the series gets stars at all. Honestly, I recommend watching the series just for the character interactions. Just be warned that you'll be disappointed by the plot.

    Now for the bad. The idea behind the story is very good, but the plot that they came up with does not live up ...

  • Great Concept, Dull Execution
    I walked into this show hoping for a kind of supernatural crime drama and, though this expectation was somewhat fulfilled, was left rather disappointed. Our lead is a 17-year-old wizard girl that wants to be a Barrister (or attorney) for Wizards in a biased human society. Her motives are pure - she feels her mother's trial had some misconduct and needs to be revisited - but she is also ...
