Wizard Barristers - Benmashi Cecil barrista

I’m not yet completely sure what to think of Wizard Barristers, but it has an atmosphere that I can learn to appreciate. I am no fan of magic show, but this one seems to take the magic to a different level than the regular magical girl show. The show does have a lot of magical girl element, but it gives off a feeling of a detective seinen show more than one of a child magical girl. They always say not to judge a book by its cover and I’m willing to give Wizard Barristers a chance and follow it for a little while to see what it it all about.

The show is about a new powerful young girl who is a magical lawyer (A Wizard Barrister). In a world where magic exist but seems heavily prohibited, wizards are discriminated against out of fear and it creates an interesting society which compels me to watch the show. The universe of Wizard Barristers seems deep and well thought out and it really makes me want to explore it much more. I am not a huge fan of Cecil for now as she seems impulsive and immature, but the world she lives in and her apparent power are quite intriguing and I feel compelled to watch the show. I have some trouble for now to figure out if Wizard Barristers is meant for a more mature or a younger audience, it is obviously not for 5 years old, but I have difficulty judging exactly the thought level that will be asked of this show. I feel dark and grim vibes from the show, but at the same time there are many cute and light element mixed in that confuses me a bit as to what to expect.

I will be blogging this show, at least for a bit, and I’m really looking forward at figuring out what we can expect from it in the future.
