Japanator: "After last week's logic-free affair, this was a pretty good episode of anime. Characters who had been lingering in the background until now got to distinguish themselves by doing interesting stuff, concerns actually relevant to the real-world criminal justice system were discussed, and the larger plot about Cecil's destiny is moving forward at a good clip. On the other hand, our alleged prodigy's level of idiocy reaches dizzying new heights. I wonder if there's some kind of inverse relationship there, where the more entertaining the show is overall, the dumber Cecil has to be. This episode was pretty solid, so our favorite badly-dressed barrister is dumber than a bag of rocks this week."
