“Wizard Barristers” is Like a Free Tour of Downtown Tokyo

A new anime from super-weird director Yasuomi Umetsu has captured our imaginations with its lovingly rendered shots some of the the oldest parts of Tokyo. It’s called Wizard Barristers, and you can watch this trailer which features a set piece on the Yamanote line:

Based on Umetsu’s previous work, we knew Wizard Barristers wouldn’t be short of panties and bloodlust, but the inclusion of a creepy sekuhara (sexual harassment) frog was a little more than anticipated.

Don't say I didn't warn you!
