Wizard Barristers: Complete Collection (2014 Season One/Sentai Blu-ray Set)

Picture: B+ Sound: B+ Extras: C Episodes: B+

Ever since magic users came into existence a new system law and order was set into place to judge and control them. Magic has been outlawed in every which way, except if they work for the government. Any non-sanctioned magic is punishable by death, but in order to have a 'fair' trial 'wizard barristers' are now used to defend all magic users. Cecil is then youngest barrister and has just joined Butterfly Law Firm and has much to learn about all the laws and loop holes for magic users in Wizard Barristers: Complete Collection (2014).

Cecil became a wizard barrister to help defend magic user's 'rights'. While there are those who use magic for evil/personal gain, there are those who use magic to protect or defend themselves. It is up to a wizard barrister to help decide the difference, but she is up against an up hill battle against human fear and are prejudice, and that's not to mentioning all the 'Judges' are humans only and believe all magic users are guilty until proved innocent. While some magic users have reject the human who judge them, war seems like the fate between humans and magic users... and Cecil is the key to either starting the war or preventing it.

If there were ever any magic user, mutants, espers or some sort of people with powers or abilities beyond human norms, it is in human nature to fear, reject, envy of those with ...and those without. And even the government is not above that, the corruption of any governments is control and power over the people. It is a joke that government is for the people when they ignore other and discriminate against those who they believe to be different.

The 1080p 1.78 X 1 digital High Definition image and lossless DTS-HD MA (Master Audio) 2.0 Stereo mixes (especially the Japanese one, like the English version, with Pro Logic-like surrounds) make for a very strong combination throughout, with some demo moments, if not at the very top of Sentai's performance list. Extras include web previews, clean opening and closing animations and trailers.
