Wizard Barristers: Benmashi Cecil Episode 11 - What the Lucifer...?!


Episode 11 of Wizard Barristers brings us a crazy turn of events with probably the worst animation idea I've ever seen haha. LUCIFERRRRRRRRR!

|Wizard Barristers: Benmashi Cecil Episode 11|


|Review|

Cecil ended up captured and was actually turned into a cataclyst for Lucifer for a brief moment before being saved by Shizumu who realized his wrong actions. Result? He's dead. I'll admit, the transformation, as well as seeing Moyo 'transform' too was creepy as hell. I didn't expect that - at least not from this anime. It looked straight out of a horror anime but somehow they managed to pull it off...barely. If it wasn't for the absolute shit animation they decided to go with, things would've been fine. They used a bunch of still frames and just overall bad animation to the point that I thought my release was corrupted. Turns out it wasn't. I've heard they were struggling with the last couple episodes, but I didn't think it'd be this bad.

As far as Lucifer goes, once 'he' was brought back, he tells us that he had already been back - for 6 years to be exact. He apparently was living as a human ever since the first time they used to the spell to bring Cecil back when she died. My guess is that she is Moyo (although it's not confirmed). Moyo has the fiery dark look, as well as the same eyes Lucifer/Cecil had AND she wears a jacket that says Go To Hell.

The episode definitely could have been better (and that's not even talking about the animation). Everything was over in a flash, and this almighty summoning barely lasted which leaves me wondering what's next? Shizumu's dad was caught and is now being put on trial, but surely the show wouldn't end without a twist. He had asked Cecil to be his Benmashi. Let's hope next episode turns out better than this focusing on what it's good at - trials.
