IMPORTANT!! Before anyone makes anymore stupid comments about this review, I want to make some things very clear. 1. I HAVE NOT PLAYED THE GAME! Nor do I have any intention to. I don't even own a game system so it's not even plausable. After watching this, I wouldn't play them even if I did play games. I have a phone that plays solitaire and suduko. 2. This review isn't meant for people who have played the games. It's not useful to you. My opinion is from the perspective of someone who hasn't played the game and cannot compare it to the game or have prexisting opinions of the story. This review is from the perspective of someone who hasn't played the games and who likes stories to have some kind of logic, real-world or other. This review is aimed at others who are in the same position. 3. There are no requirements to watch an anime. Regardless of whether it's made for the fans or made as advertisement or made for pure entertainment or whatever, anyone is allowed to watch it. There is no requirement that the audience or reviewer has to read the manga, play the game, read the novel, watch the movie, etc, and it is just as important for them to voice their opinion. 4. Freedom of speach and freedom to have my own opinion. I have it. Thank you. First of all, that is not at all how any courtroom or trial works, American, Japanese, French, Itallian, any. Second, don't say opening statements if you aren't going to follow through. Third, what attourney worth anything would walk into a courtroom that clueless about the crime. Fourth, since when does speaking cause a blast of air that can push someone down. Fifth, just because it's based off a game doesn't mean it should look like a game with music that sounds like it's in a game. That's the video game. This is the anime. It's not supposed to be the same thing. Sixth, what judge would let a defendent interrupt like that.  Seventh, if you really wanted to help your friend out, wouldn't you ask someone with a lot of experience to take the case not take it yourself as your very first trial? Wouldn't you want them to have someone really good defending your friend? Eighth, what lawyer in his right mind steals evidence from a hotel room and other places and hides evidence from the investigators. I know Japans Law system all that well but I am pretty sure that is not legal, not to mention you can't get much forensic data on evidence if it's not handed in. I got through the first episode mostly by pretending this was all in someones imagination and in reality it was a buch of kids playing pretend because that is really the only way to make the story makes even the slightest bit of sense. The elements of the story were fine but the content was crap. If the content wasn't so off it might have made it at least a bit better.  The animation style just put me off. It isn't necessarily bad, I just don't like that style much. I wouldn't be surprised if the sound in the game was the exact same as the sound for the anime. I remember at one moment the sound was really noticable to me and it felt like I was playing some game with that sort of repetitive type music or whatever, although I never played the game and never will. The characters were just dumb. How did any of them even make it through law school? Are we sure they got an education past high school because I'm not convinced. Not to mention they were highly stereotypical and bland.  Run away. Just run away. And whatever you do, don't let this guy be your attourney!!! I watched both episodes because I have nothing else to watch right now and I was slightly curious, but I would never reccomend it. Curiosity killed the cat anyway.
