1. A liquid crystal display device comprising:

  • a first substrate;

    a second substrate facing said first substrate;

    a liquid crystal layer sealed between said first substrate and said second substrate;

    a first electrode formed on said first substrate;

    a second electrode formed on said second substrate;

    a first molecule orientation film formed on said first substrate so as to cover said first electrode;

    a second molecule orientation film formed on said second substrate so as to cover said second electrode;

    a plurality of micro structures associated with at least one of the first and second electrodes, wherein at least some of said micro structures extend generally parallel to each other,wherein when a driving voltage is applied between said first electrode and said second electrode, liquid crystal molecules of said liquid crystal layer are oriented such that no dark line occurs in a vicinity of said plurality of micro structures and no dark line occurs between adjacent ones of said micro structures, andwherein said liquid crystal display device further comprises;

    a polarizer provided outside of one of said first and second substrates, said polarizer having a light absorption axis P; and

    an analyzer provided outside of the other of said first and second substrates, said analyzer having a light absorption axis A, wherein the light absorption axis A of said analyzer crosses the light absorption axis P of said polarizer,wherein at least some of said micro structures extend in a direction that obliquely crosses at least one of said light absorption axis A of said analyzer and said light absorption axis P of said polarizer.
