YMMV / Wizard Barristers

Go To

  • Les Yay: Moyo Tento towards Cecil Sudo (although we can't be sure, what gender, if any, Lucifer normally has).
  • Rooting for the Empire: Considering that wizards tend to do extreme damage in their rampage, Wizard Barristers are considerably hated by the general public and are seen as only a hair removed from their clients. Some audience also hold this view out of universe, rooting for the two Inspectors.
    • This later changed when it becomes clearer how lopsided the laws are, and how there seems to be a conspiracy pushing for the discrimination of Wuds, not for prejudice, but some ulterior motive.
  • Special Effects Failure: The CGI is quite dated and obvious. In the finale, the animation just stops! During a characters death no less! Viewers are left scratching their heads as the voice actors prattle on as if nothing happened.

  • Tear Jerker: Exactly six months after this series ended its run in Japan, Iemasa Kayumi (the voice actor for Kyusaku Odagiri) passed away. It's sad watching this series knowing that it would be one of his last roles.
  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Plot: The series had the potential to do a Law & Order or Ace Attorney-style story, but with a magical twist.note  However, after a few episodes the courtroom takes a backseat, and more and more excuses are made as to why the main character is fighting crime rather than defending the accused.
  • Visual Effects of Awesome: The animation for most episodes is very, very nice, especially during the action sequences.
  • The Woobie: The client in "Sword and Scales". He was not actually a spy for the robbers, he was just a victim of workplace bullying.

How well does it match the trope?
