Upcoming Anime: Wizard Barristers

Now here’s something that has piqued my interest. It seems like it would be what would happen if Harry Potter crossed over with Phoenix Wright.

Wizard Barristers: Benmashi Cecil is set in Tokyo in 2018. Normal humans and those who can use magic coexist. In regards to use of magic, there are laws and a ‘magic courtroom’ exists to preside over lawsuits regarding magic use.
‘Benmashi’ or wizard barristers, are the people responsible for defending those who are able to use magic. The main character of this anime is 17-year old Cecile Sudo, the youngest Benmashi in history.
