Silvertongue 30xx: Space-Time District Attorney Review

Silvertongue 30XX: Space-Time District Attorney follows the story of Silvertongue Hernandez and a rat-pack of time-travelling lawyers, specialised in revisiting (or more like crashing), so-called "Trials of the Century" throughout space-time. Silvertongue, a selfish, dark, ego-centric, womanizer and addict, will encounter the most bizarre of adventures in search of Reality 2; a parallel multi-verse he and his motley crew are carefully crafting, which will possibly mean salvation for us all. Or, will it?

When I read this indie manga, first impression is remember me to Nintendo game, Ace Attorney because the theme and drawing style is similar, about a lawyer.
This manga has own unique court system. The court conducted in a train which runs from one region to another region and equipped with some kind of snout which has functionality as a destroyer,  and because of that the train called Bulldozers in this manga. Each region in this manga, also has own law system.
I like the protagonist characters, they are space time attorney with each person having different character/personality and abilities.

Silvertongue 30XX: Space-Time District Attorney is not suitable if you are like with fighting/action scene although in volume 1 there are several fighting scene.
Because that is not the strength point of this manga. This manga is suitable for you who like a drama and justice talk story.

Thank you to Little Nando to send me a copy of first volume.
