Wow; how hideously disappointing. The first part was great and I loved how best girl just fucking blasted the Wizard on the train (and how her partner de-chambered his weapon; it looks like Japan finally has the foggiest idea of how self-loading weapons work) but then this and everything after it happened and now the show looks like it's going to be mediocre at best.
Yeah but let me know if there's double penetration rape porn in it like kite so I can pick it up is you would please.
Cecil is going to end up getting framed for the bank robbery metalmoido.
I will esxcuse the bullshit legal thingies. It seems pretty obvious "wug" are discriminated against. Heck, wug isn't very far from wog. Which is a racial slur.
>starting the thread with a declaration of your shitty opinion instead of having a neutral OP and letting people talk without said shitty opinion hanging over the entire thread
Wasn't it in Mezzo ?
Scratch the "seems". They are branded as it. Can't hide it. Written right here and there on their id.
The idea, action and animation were all good, but the MC is shit.
>Hurr durr talent youngest ever perfect etc
Really killed my interest.
It was Mezzo and Yellow Star.
Still better than space dandy in every aspect.
>Hurr durr talent youngest ever perfect etc
Welcome to anime.
It was worse than usual though.
Another show that looks like it'll be brought down heavily by a bad MC
Guess I'll check Mezzo then. Not sure I'll handle that much of this chara design for the week though.
What? She is incompetent as fuck.
And what kind of you drugs did you take, faggot?
So much envy in this thread. Why can you fuckers only empathize with someone pathetic?
Both are the best shows this season.
Then come loliconquest, nobunagun and seki-kun
If you like one of the remaining your taste is shit.
Will this anime have the ball to criticize discrimination and racism? I doubt it.
Silver Spoon S2 is the best show this season.
>Starting the episode
>Suddenly all that piss ugly CG
What the fuck, Umetsu?
Galilei Donna was full of shitty CG too.
Lets hope this never gets as bad as GD was by the end.
I watched Space Dandy with great expectations and was so dissapointed.
If they manage to set some new accents maybe.
So far the same old song is getting a bit old.
It's not like Japan even knows what wogs are.
He's right though. Animation is better as a whole, it's not some unfunny shit from an overrated hack and the characters aren't nearly that annoying
I've read the manga, there's incoming believable and well handled drama and suffering
It's "wud". WUG is new Yamakan's show.
Dude, I'm pretty shit your name is under the definition of "shit taste" in the dictionary.
I fixed it.
Close enough. Yamakan is a racist too.
Watanabe might be overrated, but he's still pretty good (or was, his recent stuff has been shit).
Bebop and Samurai Champloo are both great, they just get over-praised by retards.
Is this the character designer from those old-ass secret agent gets raped by mafiaguys hentai series ?
Looks extremely familiar
>those character designs
>those animations and explosions
>that wakamoto frog-bon
>that 3D CGI metamoloid
>all those asses and explosions in the OP
>that plane cut in half
I'm only 8 minutes in and it's the best thing ever.
Freud would have something to say about that repressed scat fetish of yours.
Never had a proble with that.
I guess it's an american inferiority complex.
why do they look like gravion characters
>that plane cut in half
That was pretty rad
First half of the episode definitely felt really good, but then all of a sudden it felt so rushed and half put together. I guess since this is only going to get 12 episodes they are just going to cram this shit together.
>american inferiority complex.
I'm not an Amerifat
The girls have noses
Nah, I'm from asia and I get it.
It's annoying when the mc shows some totally unjustified bitchy attitude and is always right with it.
Hajime was a paragon of good written purposefully, don't compare her.
Make Quinn the main character and have it be about police dealing with Wizard crimes and we're golden.
But I'm like that and eventhough it keeps everyone at a distance I'd never change my attitude.
Pacing was way too fast. They tried to fit so much into the first episode and introduce so many characters that I couldn't connect with any of them.
Might as well strap in. The next ep looks even crazier, though I could be wrong.
>generic badass woman mc
Just go watch GiTS and even then Umetsu will find some way to rape her back to the kitchen.
You'll find it's no longer the best thing after long.
Thats why you don't have any friends.
From what we've seen how they treat wugs so far, she has every right to defend her self from unwarranted police harassment.
>first arc is two episodes
Dont think so, Tim.
Officer, we have an unwanted social butterfly here!
Why are you fags illiterate?
Officer, we have an unwanted special snowflake here!
Exactly but I like the way I am, I'd hate to change that aspect of me. Fuck people who are whiny faggots who can't stand the truth. Grow some fucking balls.
I don't have a problem with people that act like they are right when they actually are. I have no question in my mind you are wrong far more often than you realize.
Maybe. Probably still less that others or you, considered your complaint about MC.
Goddamn it Umetsu. The Mezzo DSA first episode was really good too but then the rest of the show was pretty meh. Please don't do it again.
i wish the mc would just disappear from this show, every other character looks ok but the mc is garbage
Is this what /a/ has become? Tolerating outsider socialites like this ingrate?
What's so bad about the MC? I'm still downloading the episode.
>not being excited for the inevitable mind break
She is young and has a promising future
Nothing. It's just the same hot air whenever a cute girl is the MC and it's ruining their sophisticated animus.
It's a show about law and competent adults and the MC is a happy-go-lucky teenage girl who makes stupid choices, disrespects her work and suffers no consequences.
Also she has ugly hair.
>first MC I've ever seen from Canada
>shittiest character in the show
So typical Umetsu MC. He loves his cute girls.
/a/ hate successful people. Who knew?
This episode did things to my dick, also, magic is so troublesome in that world, must be hell living there as everyday something gets blew of the map, not to mention that Diaboloid thing sucking metal left and right.
also, I want to marry Quinn.
And he surrounds them with rapists with ugly mugs. Sasuga Umetsu.
She can't be from Canada. She'd be melting in the Japanese heat.
That fucking hair
Ugh, Galilei Donna had the same problem.
Welp, it was an odd one. As a first episode, I think it was convoluted as fuck. Too much shit going on, bad pacing. Anyone else felt this way?
I hope you enjoy your throat cancer waifu.
No, stop tying to sound like you have good taste and enjoy the show
I'm pretty sure you can cure cancer with magic
You just described Umetsu's entire portfolio.
Thank you, but i have my waifu
>Quinn will never squat on your dick like this
Try watching less SoL shit. Most normal anime is like this.
Umetsu always has too many ideas and not enough air time to get them all out.
They are all pretty and stuff but must be hell working in a place with so many women like this, they must bicker and bitch with other every fucking day.
No wonder Sephiroth-san is always looking pissed.
My my, you're defensive.
>bringing 3D shit into 2D
So much potential for train wrecking.
SUFFERING when she loses a case and her client dies.
Damn, it still boggles my mind that he directed that.
I want to rape Cecil out of love.
>No wonder Sephiroth-san is always looking pissed.
Ah, now I know why I keep thinking he looks like the last boss
You may need these.
I agree with him about the pacing, it was shit.
Smoking girls always turns me off. 3DPD smoking is even more disgusting.
Makes me want to rewatch that show.
>destroys public property, historical exhibits, artwork, and a fucking building in order to make a giant robot to stop two muggers
>dispels it after just thirty seconds without catching the criminals
Is... is she a fucking idiot?
His hair makes him the best character in the show after molesting wakamoto frog.
Cecil is superior anyways.
Girls can't work together, it's scientifically proved.
Too early to tell about her, but the writer certainly can't be too bright. Do yourself a favor and don't even try to make sense of this show (especially the legal stuff) and just enjoy the action scenes.
>wears seifuku to professional environment and refuses to change
I'm still watching for Wakamoto and the rest of the cast though
I liked the episode, but I'm the only one that didn't like the character design? The faces are alright, but the top of their heads make them look like eggs.
BATTLE CLOTHES. I bet they're specially crafted.
It's even worse if you consider that their boss is a woman as well, I still have nightmares from my last part-time when I had a woman boss.
Shit sucks a lot, men are much more chill
But it's literally the worst use of Wakamoto's voice in any series so far.
>implying there is a bad use of Wakamoto's voice
>dispels it after just thirty seconds without catching the criminals
She said it as something created with little magic power, smaller than usual and missing an arm.
>All dressed as worse as MC
>Everyone talks about MC clothes
YOU SHUT YOUR DAMN MOUTH.
The year is '94, in my bag is raw
In my rearview mirror is the motherfucking law
Got two choices y'all, pull over the bike or
Bounce on the devil, put the pedal to the floor
And I ain't tryna see no highway chase with Jake
Plus I got a few dollars, I can fight the case
So I, pull over to the side of the road, I heard
"Girl do you know why I'm stopping you for"
Cause I'm young and a wug and my hair's real cute
Do I look like a mind reader sir, I don't know
Am I under arrest or should I guess some more?
"Well you was doing fifty-five in a fifty-four
License and registration and step off the bike
Are you carrying a weapon on you? I know a lot of you are"
I ain't stepping out of shit, all my paper's legit
"Well, do you mind if I look around the car a little bit?"
Well, my bag is locked, so is the trunk in the back
And I know my rights, so you gon' need a warrant for that
"Aren't you sharp as a tack
You some type of lawyer or something
Somebody important or something"
Well, I ain't passed the bar but I know a little bit
Enough that you won't illegally search my shit
"Well we'll see how smart you are when the K9 come"
I got 99 problems, but a bitch ain't one, hit me
She also told them she would represent them if she caught them.
I don't even...
>not being a vigilante lawyer catching criminals and then offering to represent them
I had to look that up and found out it's part of the Robot Carnival series. There's something about that show that pulls the suck out of directors.
There wasn't enough metal in the surrounding area to make the complete thing.
Optimistic, genki, and vigilante moe as fuck.
>expecting Cecil to discriminate clients
Do you even attorney?
It's called being a good businessman.
Basically, instead of relying on the police to find clients for you, you do it yourself.
I've had my fair share of horrible bosses and they're dudes. It's a case by case basis.
I would vouch that when it comes to teachers, men > women anyday.
Cute semi-competent MC, simple and straightforward plot, great action scenes, explosions at every turn, sexy as fuck, pacing all over the place. This is exactly what I was expecting and I feel satisfied.
It must suck being in the bottom of the law hierarchy and having to be a criminal defense attorney.
That's what I don't get. Half these people look like they are going out clubbing and the other half look like they are doing some shitty LARPing. The only person who actually looks like he's a defense attorney is the old man.
Also, the other newbie seems like a total bitch.
Corporate Casual taken too far.
>Is this what /a/ has become?
He's just some retarded normal who think he have any rights at all
The show looks great, the setting is interesting, but the content is so bland, the plot and the dialogue of the characters is just at the level of your random magical shonen .
>Also, the other newbie seems like a total bitch.
She IS a total bitch, but that's only because the other women also gave her the chance to show her true colors with that useless chitchatting.
If only Sephiroth-san and that old man were there when she arrived, she'd probably kept her stuff to herself and get to work,
>I guess it's an american inferiority complex.
So you're a yuropean then? Go figure that your taste is complete shit.
>But I'm like that
No. You just think you are.
Robot Carnival had quite a bit of suck actually. But Presence is one of the most amazing anime shorts ever made, bonus points for Joe Hisaishi music.
>Retarded and unrealistic stuff without any logic
>Action could be better
What a let-down, Umetsu
I feel the same way. I'll keep watching it, but this MC is going to keep it from being a great show.
This Cecil girl is pretty fuckable.
It was kind of the same with Psycho-Pass. I'll keep watching to see if it's good. At least 3 episode rule.
Is this Galileo Donna 2.0?
DId those guys really jump out of the dragon's dick?
so they snuck a panty shot in so what?
Now I'm wondering if she's gonna make the same offer to her future rapists.
Cute. What part of the episode is this?
umetsu better be reading this
Yeah, I wanted to save that pic too.
She's the "Super optimistic and young MC" that's set against a backdrop of misery and reality. One of three things will happen; She'll either change the world with super happy friendship power, the world will break her and rape her (most likely) or she will turn out to think she's a hard ass be just be a shit character like Akane from PP.
I don't know why people are so autistic about this. Just fucking wait to see where things go.
Would she represent me if I committed sexual crimes against her?
I am already getting hard at the future doujin prospects.
Why is this slut trying to corrupt our cute MC?
The show is just your generic action shonen with an art style that make the characters look more old and serious, I can see why some people are disappointed. If we leave out any kind of expectations then the first episode was generic and kind of rushed but enjoyable, it is gonna be just the fun adventures of the cute barrister and it's ok.
[Doki] Wizard Barristers - Benmashi Cecil - 01 (1280x720 Hi10P AAC) [BA0F7080].mkv
>generic action shonen
Keep trying, you'll get there one day.
Can you even represent the one who caused you harm? I mean, it should obviously lie in your interests that they lose, so having the victim represent the perpetrator is full retard. What's preventing you from making sure to do a shitty job so that they lose?
That was actually the main reason I reacted to it, not that she is stupidly "good".
>not that she is stupidly "good".
But that's the whole thing. She's so naive that she actually believes she can help these people.
Yes, her type of character is annoying, but lets wait until something happens until we decide the series is shit.
Might as well stick to HorribleSubs.
It is, it is a show obviously aimed to that demographic and the first episode was pretty generic, I didn't say anything wrong.
You might, but I don't find her annoying at all. I enjoy her character type.
Because non-virgin >> stoic virgin
She is trying to training Cecile, so she can sell a mature girl to some rapist.\
Ameriburger pls go
>obviously aimed to that demographic
Prove it. There is nothing obvious about it being shounen, and if anything it is more seinen in nature.
Why are some of you idiots saying that it felt rushed or convoluted?

I never made mention of anything being wrong. You should make an effort to at least make it not look like you're trying so hard for your opinion to seem intelligent; it's not, it's too pretentious and obvious that you're trying to go against the common opinion by giving a "analysis" of the episode.
In the future, try to be more subtle and don't use blatant words that will give you out easily, such as shounen and generic; instead, be constructive.
The adults are all going to be the best characters and anyone under 25 is going to be absolutely insufferable; calling it now. The cops, not!Sephiroth, Kerowakamoto the chick with butterflies in her hair, even the guy they're defending and his crush - I would rather literally any one of them be the main character instead of the one we got.
Because they can't understand character interactions if the anime is not a SOL with "nothing happens".
>I enjoy her character type.
I don't mind a super special MC, but it's just so out of place in these types of shows. You know the entire thing is a set up so shit can go down.
If it were aimed to a more adult demographic they will spend less time showing the side characters talking about nonsense and the show would be more focused in the plot or they will do a better job with the world building, they would put more focus in the MC and her background story instead of showing how cute and nice she is, the scripting will be better in general instead of having the characters repeating the same cliche phrases.
Pretty good b8 m8.
Just people with shitty attention span
But it was rushed. Barely a breather in the whole episode, too much stuff to show in too little time. Not that I'm complaining, I already expected it to be.
Dunno what anyone would mean by contrived though.
Oh I see
I'm entertaining the possibility that you're serious and it horrifies me.
I don't like that generalization. It makes you look like a spiteful crossboarding fag. I like shows like these along with SoL shows. But I'll agree to some degree that some people aren't used to a setting that doesn't straight-up narrate how everything works.
I think the pacing of this show is great and that it does a good job of showing instead of telling. Too bad some of the good animation was interlaced as fuck and tried to blend wonky CGI bullshit. I'm also not convinced that having the show focused around defense attorneys (oh, but sometimes they fight) would be as fun as the two badasses shooting criminal wizards in their legs.
But we'll see.
>Barely a breather in the whole episode, too much stuff to show in too little time
There were plenty of breathers. The first case isn't even finished yet so it's paced for at least a couple episodes.
This is in Kelvins right?
Well fuck me.
Doki's back, baby.
Christ she is fucking adorable. Now I know I'll be picking it up for certain.
this show looked like one of those that gets really good at the end
There's no such thing as a show like that.
Are you fucking serious? I think everyone knows what that sign means.
>implting Doki isn't top gun
What the fuck? I was promised DP in Kite and I did not receive it.
Pretty sure they got a lot better though.
Cecil is going to be raped by the end of the series. We are talking about the director of Kite and Mezzo Forte here. And this series has the exact character design as those two series and everything looks like it'll turn out to be rapesville.
Most likely to be raped:
That one non-wizard female cop
End of first episode was almost rapey, but cecil stopped it. Showed a darkened man to be plotting something against her though. Who is most likely going to orchestrate the rape later on but won't rape her himself. Probably going to have some wizard lackeys doing the raping while he watches smoking a cigarette. Rape
I wouldn't call them 'better' if they're condescending the viewer with this: >>100132938
Welcome to every Umetsu-related thread.
>IS THERE RAPE?
>I REMEMBER THAT ONE RAPE SCENE FROM XVIDEOS
>THIS IS THE RAPE DIRECTOR RIGHT?
>THIS GUY DOES MORE THAN PORN?
>CAN'T WAIT FOR THE RAPE
Kyoanus faggots are so fucking stupid.
YEAH, REMEMBER THE RAPE IN THE OTHER TV ANIME HE'S DIRECTED, LIKE GALILEI DONNA AND MEZZO DSA?
>He doesn't want that to happen
>Can't even spot an obvious joke
Stop being retarded.
Don't worry, it will be fake rape. Probably just a dream, or maybe they'll rape a Cecil's magical clone made out of scrap metal.
>But if she's late, perhaps it'd be best if you had her resign?
>I'd rather not work with someone who lacks social responsibility.
Doki also seems to have a lot of typos, like the missing punctuation here.

I dropped Galilei Donna after the loli fell six stories onto her head and got a cold.
Are you telling me roller hair didn't end up raping the loli?
Slowpoke here; I enjoyed it. And I really don't see why so many people are hating on MC, since everything she did seemed perfectly reasonable. The worst thing about it, for me, was the character design, and that's not even a real complaint.
If I remember correctly, roller hair is kill in last episode, or maybe not. Can't remember if she's alive or not.
fucking 3d object in the set fucking nigga motherfucking piece of shit goddamn cuntflap
>when sentenced to death
>gavel turns into a bird and executes him them and there
>I spent the day visiting a condemned criminal
It's a prison sentence versus a death sentence. It's not complicated.
'Condemned criminal' means someone on death row anon.
No, it does not.
And in that context it doesn't even make sense in the slightest.
If they sentence them to death and kill them the moment they pass the judgement, they don't need death rows.
>delicious frog Wakamoto
English not your first language?
Without qualification and in a legal context, yes it does.
I am English, it's something that will probably confuse non-English speakers because you can 'condemn someone to X', however when used without qualification it always means death row, I've screencapped a Google search for it so you can see how its used natively (-origins because of some shitty game).
>however when used without qualification
You mean in an anime where they speak Japanese and the criminal is in prison?
They were condemed to a life in prison. That's how the word was used. It was a proper use of the word.
In WBs context, it does not make any sense.
As the other anon already stated, why would you need a death row, if the criminal sentenced to death gets killed on the spot?
>join a law office
>on her first day, she purposely comes late and then goes all "HANG ON. I GOT THIS." and takes a case without even running it by her boss
The rhythm of this first episode seemed really off, like they tried to fit as much content as they could in 20 minutes.
That and the face proportions changing with each scene.
Overall it wasn't bad but not really good either, I'm curious about this show.
"Being condemned to a life of prison" is not the same as "being condemned." Or a subset of it as you'd expect, the latter phrase has a particular meaning when applied to criminals or old buildings.
I was hoping that it'd be a more lighthearted Bantorra, myself.
It's not very often that we get a show about responsible adults doing responsible things.
Fuck, now I have to give it at least 5 episodes.
God, even when it comes to anime, you canucks are just too friendly.
>844 Cataclysm Avenue
Must be a long road.
>It's not very often that we get a show about responsible adults doing responsible things.
So fucking true. Fucking japs and their highschool fetishes
On the other hand, the ones we do get are usually pretty good.
It's a shorter road then you'd think.
Yeah it sure is tough being a wizard in their world.
Japan really needs to check its privilege.
Wow, you're soooo cool. You can read and write kindergarten Japanese. Holy shit. No one can do that. You are so smart and cool.
The sign said 自転車を除く, that is, there is a sign that prohibits vehicles, and then a sign below it that says both literally and actually, "except bicycles".
I don't know which one of you is the worse shitposter. Let me ask moot.
how many times did she say "Right!" this episode.. jesus
I think I'm more fine with people just blasting the shit out of each other like in the first 2 minutes.
Actually I was quoting Naruto.
Is he an alien? Those eyes, moving hair, bad pants with a suit.
>"Being condemned to a life of prison" is not the same as "being condemned."
Japanese is a language of implications. If they say "condemned criminal" and they're in prison, then it's a criminal condemned to a life in prison. It's very cut and dry given that her mom is in jail.
I already want to drop it, don't talk with your mouth full.
Whoah, lots of hate here. If you don't like the social justice element then why did you watch a show about a cute 17-year old lawyer?
Holy fuck this show
Japan's crime isn't really like this is it? I mean, I know all nations outside of the US are jew filled slave states, and that the US only has a slight amount of its standards left in it before it falls in line with the other goyim, but it isn't honestly this bad is it?
The "Guilty until we say innocent" in this is ridiculous
There's a reason Ace Attorney is basically a satire of the Japanese legal system
>all nations outside of the US are jew filled slave states
Yeah. The Japanese criminal justice system is kind of fucked. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-20810572
With Jews, you lose
Alright, /pol/, you had your fun for a few posts. Now if you could fuck off back to there, that would be much appreciated.
1) The US legal system is anything but "innocent until proven guilty."
2) The concept of presumed innocence is integral to the human rights age of the late 20th century and is often associated with constitutional amendments which instill "zionist" or "liberal values"
3) Guilty until proven innocent is a fundamentally illiberal concept, oftentimes associated with more arbitrary, conservative and authoritarian states. (eg. the USSR, Nazi Germany, post-WWII Japan)
tl;dr: innocent until proven guilty is a valid enforced by "the jews" under your own fundamental logic, unless you want to incorrectly separate that value from classical liberalism and the rule of law.
So, Watashi-Koi's subs came out but I had already downloaded HS. I haven't watched it yet, though. Can someone compare the two? Is HS fine or does it really suck? If it's fine I'll just stick to HS since it's hours earlier. If it's Funi subs, though, that's an instant no.
Why did he unload his gun, what purpose would it serve to carry an unloaded weapon?
Basic firearms safety; you always leave your gun unloaded unless you think you're going to shoot it in the immediate future. They got the guy they were after and that was that.
