Japanese Anime Pokes Fun at America’s Legal System

This is a clip from an anime version of the manga “Yakitate!! Japan,” meaning “Freshly Baked!! Ja-pan.”  By way of background, “Yakitate!! Japan” is an unusual show about a bread-baking competition:

The genius teenage baker, Azuma Kazuma sets his goal as creating the ultimate Ja-pan, a bread that Japan would be famous for. With the natural warm hands Azuma possess (Solar hands), he sets off to become a baker for Japan’s largest bakery chain, Pantasia.

It is an over-the-top,  campy, and just plain odd series.  But none of that is particularly relevant to this clip.

The video presents an interesting and humorous view of the American legal system.  The first 30 seconds are difficult to watch, but give it a chance.

In light of all this, it makes Nintendo’s recent warning label on the new 3DS seem both pathetic and apropos.

  4. American tort law isn’t the only thing that needs reforming, someone needs to take a whack at the bail bond system: http://lawblog.legalmatch.com/2011/02/07/americas-bail-system-needs-to-be-reformed/

    I can picture the anime now. “Shinji just got arrested for stealing a timble.” “Oh no, how do we get him out?” “Post $10,000 bail or leave him to rot in jail until his arraignment…” “Screw Shinji.”
