THEY HAVE THE ACE ATTORNEY OFFICIAL MANGA IN MY LAW LIBRARY I AM CRYING.



Your honor, something is amiss here!
As you are probably aware, library materials are labeled with barcodes as well as a number to determine their location on the shelf, as per the Dewey Decimal System. The books just to the left of the manga are labeled, as are the DVDs just in view on the lower shelf. Look even further behind these shelves and you’ll see that even those books are labeled! 
Ladies and gentlemen of the courtroom, I invite you to take a closer look at the volumes that are, allegedly, part of this law library! Something is missing from the spines, isn’t there?

Where are the bar codes?!
This is a blatant contradiction! The OP is lying— these volumes cannot, therefore, be a part of this library at all! I propose that they simply brought these materials in for the sake of the joke!! 


Only focusing on one aspect and not the whole of the issue, are we, Mr. Wright? Typical.

Your honor, if you bring your attention to the books just left of the manga, you’ll notice there’s a book (the second to the left) that also does not have a bar code.

If you examine the picture even closer—particularly the DVDs below—you’ll see that they bear bar codes, but not on the spines. No, they have them on the back and/or front of the DVDs. Of course, this method of labeling and organizing isn’t limited to products of the film industry alone.

Therefore, I’d like to propose that it is entirely possible that the manga books do, in fact, belong to the library!


Wh-WHAAAAT?! You’re kidding!! 
(Shoot, he’s got me there… Better think of something fast! Something about the books that sets them apart from—
…! I’ve got it!)
While that may be true, you’ve also overlooked one critical error: the titles of the books! Whether or not your hypothesis regarding the labeling system is correct, these titles aren’t alphabetized correctly! What kind of self-respecting librarian would misplace such vital books? 
Well, Edgeworth?



While it pains me to have to point out something so obvious, I suppose I’ll make an exception for you, Wright.
Clearly, one look at the titles of the books next to the manga is a tell-all of this certain library’s less-than-stellar organization skills. None of the books are in alphabetical order, I’m afraid.

They could very well be alphabetized by author and not title, but it’s a little difficult to be able to decipher that from this single picture, wouldn’t you say?
Furthermore, the manga books themselves are in numerical order, suggesting some kind of system is in place, albeit not a very good one, if the alphabetizing is off.

At the end of the day, it seems like neither of us can draw a clear conclusion from this evidence alone. Your honor, I strongly suggest a recess in which we could investigate the library itself further.

I see the issue here very clearly.
Due to the uncertain nature of this case, we’ll have to postpone this decision until more decisive evidence can be obtained. The court will now take a 15-minute recess.

(W-wait, but I’m not—)


WAIT!!!

I’ve got some decisive evidence for you, pal!

We investigated further into the photo. Zooming in, you can see a label on the DVD case to the bottom left.

Photo Close-up added to the court record!


As you can see, pal, you can vaguely see the words “Of Toledo Law Library” on the label!

And, considering possibilities of the rest of that label, “University of Toledo" was the first to come to my mind!
A quick search on the University of Toledo’s Online Law Library Database revealed that there ARE the comics pictured in it!
Miles Edgeworth Ace Attorney Investigations volumes 1-4 and Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney volumes 1-5!

And there’s more! 
The section these comics are filed under is the “Law in Popular Culture" Section, which matches up with the stickers on the rest of the books on that shelf: "Lowering the Bar: Lawyer Jokes & Legal Culture”, “Prime Time Law”, “Lawyers in Your Living Room!" and "Reel Justice: The Courtroom Goes to the Movies”!
Not only is it in the right section, it’s also a documented part of the Law Library’s database!
How’s that for decisive evidence?

30 Day Anime Challenge Day 23: Favorite Attack someone used in Anime

1. An anime will only be mentioned once in the list. (Meaning some would qualify more in one category then another. Therefore it would be there instead)

2. Limiting the anime to one’s I saw in middle/high school save for the specific exceptions.

3. They will be in my rant style

———————————

There are all kinds of anime attacks out there. So thinking back (and looking at  all the past days of this challenge) I realized I forgot one of the days with some of the most creative and unique attacks for the user.

Bankai from Bleach

image

Just. Bankai in general. While I do have specific favorites of bankai, I decided in general it’s honestly one of my favorite attacks anyone uses (at least in Bleach). Mostly because it depends solely on the user and their Zanpakto (a.k.a. sword for the uninformed).

image

Bankai is the third form of a zanpakuto, the first being a normal blade and the second being the Shikai. And I like the Bankai because it varies from person to person, all the effects, styles, and attacks are all independent of each other. It can be a physical attack or mental one (or in other cases spirit energy based). 

image

I would’ve said that Shikai was my favorite of the forms, but in all honesty, bankai edges out because of how strong it is (and how cool it is). That and only a select few have bankai to use, so that makes it all worth more when you can see them use it.

image

One thing’s for sure. Most anime fans, and all Bleach fans, would love to see Bankai from everyone (myself included). We all like it, and we all would like to use it.

image

(only a few days left!)

Until tomorrow Jaa mata

30 Day Anime Challenge Day 22: Favorite Weapon, Gear, Armor in anime

1. An anime will only be mentioned once in the list. (Meaning some would qualify more in one category then another. Therefore it would be there instead)

2. Limiting the anime to one’s I saw in middle/high school save for the specific exceptions.

3. They will be in my rant style

———————————

Anime has a lot of different types of weapons, varying from swords to plain old fists (my most epic scene was just a fist fight after all). But sometimes anime has to go a little farther in order to get the best scenes possible.

Cutlery from Kuroshitsuji/ Black Butler

image

While not one of the top choices for a killer, cutlery is certainly one of the more creative weapons. In this case everyone’s favorite butler, Sebastian Michaelis, decided that instead of a gun or a sword, his choice of weapon is the plain old forks and knives or the Phantomhives.

Cause after all

image

It’s interesting since sebastian is (spoilers, I guess) a demon. He has plenty of options available to him, yet decided to use one of the more simple objects to fight with. Even when going against guns, grim reapers, and other demons.

image

It’s mostly for the grace and appearance to be a fine butler (among other things) to his master. He even refuses to the end to show his true form to keep his appearance to his master. He can use the whole drawer to take out a whole gang (although he certainly has an Achilles heel of liking cats).

image

There’s nothing much else I could say (mostly cause they are just forks and knives).

So I suppose until tomorrow, Jaa mata.

30 Day Anime Challenge Day 21: Favorite Goofy Anime Character

A few days ago (or weeks not sure) I ranted on about how one of the anime series that I would watch over and over again. And it also happened to hold a large amount of goofy anime characters.

Despite that, I did have to pick another anime because of the rules (see any of the previous days for details). So I decided on a character from one of my personal favorite anime.

Patty Thompson from Soul Eater

Anyone who has seen soul eater would ask, why not have excalibur as this spot? Well, Excalibur is more annoying then goofy (although he does have his moments, especially in the manga).  

Back to Patty, I though. She’s one of the more childish characters of the group, providing both cutesy moments along with insane outbursts at the simplest things.

I could go into details about how she is most likely trying to get back her childhood, coming from a poor background with her sister. But even then she doesn’t really give a crap, laughing at the faces of danger.

She has her own way of solving the problems, offering both support to her sister and meister in more blunt ways. Of course the other times she does what ever she feels like, not bothering to question the consequences.

And I enjoy her character mostly on the fact that no one questions it. Everyone’s totally fine with her being spastic and trigger happy sometimes. In the end they know they can trust her to get things done (mind you a lot of damaged will probably be done in the process).

She’s violent, insane, and childish in a world of madness, and still manages to get things done all while having fun with it all.

ONLY NINE DAYS LEFT.

until tomorrow, Jaa mata!

30 Day Anime Challenge Day 20: Anime Character that gets on your nerve

It’s honestly hard for me to say what anime character that gets on my nerve. Cause when I truly get down to the heart of the manner, there are so many different reasons why I hate certain characters.

Which is why I’m going to rant about them all. 

CHARACTER TROPES THAT GET ON MY NERVE

I hate how some characters are only there for plot purposes. Like they don’t have any actual character to them other then giving exposition (most prominent in english dubbed “children’s” anime)

image

Though to be fair, that’s the fault of the writing staff for not realizing anime is not all for children. There is character there, just. Pushed aside for plot.

I hate whiny characters who, while get stronger later on in a series, are useless a good chunk of the time. It’s a bit overused to get the point across of “how far they have come”  but at the same time it’s a bit of an insult.

image

I hate how strong anime character have to take their time fighting. Yeah it’s epic to see a good fight, but if it has to carry on for three seasons with fillers and other fights in-between, the epicness loses it’s effect.

image

I think this is why I found the ending battle to Soul Eater anime to be amusing and out of nowhere.

image

I hate how stereotypical most of the main characters are (at least back in the older anime). Where the main protagonist is either the super positive one or the “leader” of the group or “the chosen one” and that’s pretty much all there is to their character.

image

Though some in some of the cases they did mix it up a little. Such as Naruto who was happy, but because he had to work hard everyday making his own motivation for himself. (that and it was pretty cool to see how OPPOSITE the situation could have been when he and Gaara essentially had the same life)

image

But these are all nitpicks.

For there is one thing that I most of all about certain anime characters.

The extras with a lot more to them

image

I like good characters. Except when there are WAY TOO MANY to pay attention to. And when this happens, chances are there are going to be a few of them that get sidelined and the audience doesn’t get enough about them.

They could be family members, friends at school, or even the character(s) that are only allowed to be in one episode or a certain filler arc.

image

While there are anime that do try to get to their characters developed in the end, it’s hard to do unless their characters are directly tied into the storyline. (Which is why I hate it when most anime characters get character development in fillers where it doesn’t even matter)

image

Yeah the main characters are important. Which is why it makes sense to just focus on them instead of leading on about other characters and then going straight back to the main characters (this is mostly from my experience of watching Bleach fillers and Naruto movies.)

image

Maybe I’m nitpicking. Maybe I need to watch more anime (always the best solution) Or maybe I’m just sleep deprived from the past few days of staying up and doing this challenge at the last minute. Either way, happy Easter and, until tomorrow, Jaa mata.

30 Day Anime Challenge Day 19: Most epic scene ever

1. An anime will only be mentioned once in the list. (Meaning some would qualify more in one category then another. Therefore it would be there instead)

2. Limiting the anime to one’s I saw in middle/high school save for the specific exceptions.

3. They will be in my rant style

———————————

I actually remember at one point in high school I went through the phase of trying to find epic scenes of anime. (mostly to try and broaden my own anime list).

While there are a lot of scenes in many anime that are epic in different ways, there’s one that I think I enjoyed for a few reasons.

The lunchroom scene from Tenge Tenjou

Now this anime is just bursting with testosterone, bloody fights, fan service, and all that kind of stuff guys like about anime.

And I know what you’re thinking “why not include DBZ or any other one of those obvious fight scenes?” Refer to rule one of this challenge. And while I didn’t get into the manga for this series, I did watch most of the anime and have to admit, it was exactly what I expected.

Back to the scene.

One of the main characters challenges another one of the characters in your typical dick measuring contest requiring them to have an all out fight in from of everyone in the lunchroom.

While it had lots of blood and the main character losing most of the time, I think the epic part of it was how he won the challenge (spoilers).

All he had to do was land one blow on the other guy, and did so using a feint. 

With a lunch box.

And while he did technically win, the other character wasn’t exactly a good sport. And the scene proceeded as follows.

(watch the full scene here and make that determination for yourself)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=50Wc2UlFhn4

This whole scene intrigued me into watching the anime, so it wasn’t a total loss. All I could say is that while this anime did not take my top spot for the fighter anime day, it does get the day of the most epic scene (which usually is fighter related)

More challenge tomorrow, jaa mata!

30 Day Anime Challenge Day 18: Favorite Supporting Female Character

 

1. An anime will only be mentioned once in the list. (Meaning some would qualify more in one category then another. Therefore it would be there instead)

2. Limiting the anime to one’s I saw in middle/high school save for the specific exceptions.

3. They will be in my rant style

——————————————

Alright, more Yugioh tonight!

Anzu Mazaki from Yugioh Season Zero

Okay so I know it seems like I’m cheating on this one. But technically Season Zero was done by a different company and wasn’t in the main anime cannon (hence season zero) it’s another anime for the list

Much like Joey, Anzu is one of the more developed and supportive characters in the series. Unlike Joey, she never got the chance to develop a lot of her character in Yugioh DM, and the difference between that series and season zero becomes even more apparent.

Getting back on topic, Anzu was already created to be a supportive character to Yugi, being his best friend since elementary (or something like that).

Anzu was a good female character of the time (again, in that awkward time of anime girls only being figures or super cute). Then again, Anzu herself was pretty sexualized, but at the same time she never flaunted it. Most of the time she ignored it and went on with her life, usually hanging with Yugi or doing something with the school or work.

Anzu was a strong character in the fact that she knew what she wanted, but still had time to give attention to those who needed her. She was down to earth and tried to help whenever Yugi had problems in any way she could, even if it was just being there.

(she was the one that initiated this as well)

I really liked how much she helped Yugi come to terms with the spirit of the puzzle (aka Yami Yugi), especially in the small moments where they talked about it directly.

At one point in the original manga there were a lot of scenes between Yugi and Anzu that were never put in the anime. Not only did they show how much of a good friend Anzu was, but it offered a lot of insight on what Yugi thought about her and his other self.

(but we’re not talking about the original manga, ARE WE!!!!)

Anzu was one of the most supportive characters in the yugioh series (of course Season Zero was about the characters and NOT the card games)

Maybe one day we’ll see a remake of the original manga and see all of these moments. Like a whole remake and not just after a certain time or just to promote something.

Until then, jaa mata
