#Anime Vice Discussion Threads » Wizard Barristers: Benmashi Cecil

Oh lord....muppets after dark...I got the corrupt law vibe after the first episode when she went to see the lady in jail, and the general racism against wizards (though given the power they have is somewhat understandable). Haven't caught up with this yet so glad that it stayed good.

Nobunagun » So if no one else is going to talk about this I will!

If there is a thread for this all ready let me know because I love this show and would love to talk about it with people. Music is incredible, animation is interesting, idea is crazy, action is balls to the wall, AND IT HAS A SPACE BUNNY! I mean really what more than that do you want?

So how many people think the brain we found out about in episode 3 is her "friend" that seems to be the running theory elsewhere - comes off the idea that oba was betrayed by his retainer I believe (along with the opening to some extent I think). I love the flying through the air in the hurricane episode along with her dance that was hilarious - but really...does she have to look like megaman? Anywho what else about this do people love?

Wizard Barristers » Lets mix a shonen anime with...Law and Order (?) Wizard Barrister

So....lets talk about this show. I honestly am not sure what to think about this. The animation is absolutely AMAZINGLY gorgeous and the frog that is the main character's familiar is cute as all BON! The fight animation was great but I am just not sure how this is going to work so are we going to have shonen here mixed in with law and order like criminal procedure....I am not sure if interrupting Dragon Ball Z with someone commenting on freeze's legal defense strategy is going to work....

Still I am intrigued enough to stick around and see if they can make it work and perhaps they will surprise me I mean it has happened before.

So what are people thinking about the little we are seeing about Japanese legal system? As a law student that is my major original draw but the love quadrilateral and mix of tropes used in interesting ways is keeping me around.

Bakemonogatari » Bakemonogatari --- wtf

Ok so I just started watching this...and really wtf this is one truly odd odd show. Up to episode five the end of the strange strange elementary school girl (who I expect is not an elementary school girl) and I just have to ask does any of this get explained...it is so odd.

Other than Madoka no and that is certainly only on the fringe that it does. I do love me some c-control though..good stuff. Don't understand it as much as i would like but I did enjoy it.

Want to help me write a law school test question hypothetical? ;). Out of curiosity what type of law did you study/practice. I am going into patent/copyright (which means I am going to end up fighting some anime pirates I guess...)

Puella Magi Madoka Magica » OH MY WHAT A SHOW - anyone want to talk deeply about this?

Heh will I will start then ;). What Buddhist connections do you see here? She somewhat merged with the universe it seemed like but it wasn't an all together positive experience...which seems pretty Buddhist to me.

Puella Magi Madoka Magica » OH MY WHAT A SHOW - anyone want to talk deeply about this?

I just finished this today and I have to say WOW HOLY *(&&^%. This is now right up there dueling as my favorite show of all time. Wow. Gorgeous artwork, action, plot twists galore, and a deep philosophical story that is truly moving. I so want to have a deep discussion about this especially with anyone who majored in religion or philosophy. I see this as really speaking Christianity back to the west but with very much a Japanese/Buddhist slant. The echo chamber that such discussions have become in the post modern world (I can't bring myself to call it post post modern) is fascinating.

Just Anime » looking for lawyers that watch anime...

Ok so this is going to be an odd post but enjoy . I am looking for lawyers/law students that watch anime and have seen or are willing to watch Madoka. I am on episode 9 now where the crap really hits the fan, and while watching the show I found myself thinking "you know this would make a really good hypothetical around public necessity". I would explain more but it would give away major spoilers.

General if you have not seen this show watch it now. This show has reignited my passion and faith in anime. Truly an amazing piece of artwork.

General Discussion » Vice Pit Question Thread

Many of the most famous anime series are famous because they were the first to do something. Outlaw star for example (I won't say to much more since you are watching it and I don't want to spoil). Eva also did some things in the mecha genre that hadn't been done before and Ghost in the Shell was the first anime to show a computer program gaining sentience (though it was the first time I had seen that portrayed I learned later it wasn't the first time it had been portrayed in media). In shows like this were much of the fame comes from being first do you think it makes it harder for people who have seen the tropes these shows created appreciate the earlier shows? (For example cowboy bebop owes a debt to outlaw star..does the fact you saw beop first make it harder for you or people in general to appreciate outlaw star?).

Off-Topic » mania an unsafe site?

So one of the other genre websites I go to is mania to check out sci-fi movies and such and the anime forum. Recently when I tried to go there both my browser and my anti-virus program blocked the site and told me it installed dangerous programs on my computer....the hell? Anyone know anything about this..been visiting the site for years now and have never had this problem before...
