Things are finally starting to intensify in Wizard Barristers, it seems that the people of the office won’t be as clueless as they used to be anymore. Now that the local agency tried to kill them all, it is rather obvious that there is something extremely fishy going on. With Cecil always being involved in really strange incidents and people around them are turning into murderers, it is starting to be difficult to ignore what is going on.

For my part, I am starting to be rather impressed, not by the magic of Cecil, but the one used by Moyo. Look, it is one thing to create a huge metal mecha out of cities nearby, but it is a whole something else to teleport halfway across the globe and burn two people to death. Moyo magic is way beyond anything Cecil could even dream of right now, she is able to stop time, travels anywhere in the world and use some kind of divine hellish fire to kill people quickly and disintegrate them into pieces. As the show goes on I am finding myself to be way more interested in Moyo than Cecil. I find that girl to be way more cryptic and interesting than Cecil could ever hope to be. The power of Metaboloid was always one that I found rather ridiculous and to be one of the factor ruining this show, so I find myself to hate 1/3 of Cecil’s power, no matter how impressive they are supposed to be.

Now, let’s try and make sense of all this prophecy around Cecil. We have been given a lot of information already, but there are still so many empty spot of information to fill in. One thing we already assumed but that we now have confirmation of is that Cecil’s parent are fully aware of what is going on around their daughter, they just never told her. Cecil’s dad definitively knew what was going on at his house, I just wonder why he never told Cecil. I mean, there must be a good reason why that girl is unaware of what is going, I don’t think they would refrain from telling her to “protect her”. At this point I feel like if at least she knew what she was up against she would be better protected.

The other important information we learned this episode is that Cecil seems to be much older than what she think she is. From what I can tell, Cecil seems to have phoenix like power too. The girl is said to have died already in the past and now she came back to life. It explains why her parents are so old and why the tree in her front yard is so tall. Cecil must have reach the age she is now twice and she was killed before she was 18 in her previous life. Now she is back to 17 again and all her trouble are starting all over again. This would also explain why her parent are fully aware of what is going on, but I don’t understand all the details and implication of those facts in the story. I am sure we will understand more soon enough though, so I am not worried in the least.
