“Ace Attorney” is an animated series based on the mega-popular video game series of the same name. Set in Los Angeles in 2016, it’s more than perfect that the anime was released this year! The story revolves around rookie defense attorney, Phoenix Wright, and his trials and tribulations (see what I did there?).
The main cast consists of Phoenix, Maya Fey, Miles Edgeworth, Mia Fey, and Dick Gumshoe, all with varying occupations and personalities, yet connected to one another through strings of fate.
The animated series was released early 2016 and currently has twelve episodes. The anime is still ongoing and will cover the span of the “Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney,” the first game in the series.
I’m a huge fan of the “Ace Attorney” series, so I’ve been waiting for years to see the animation. The live action film was disappointing, but I had high hopes the anime would do the spectacular series justice.
Not only do all the characters have individual quirks (and punny names), but all of the cases and characters are interconnected in this huge web (or conspiracy, if you’d like to see it that way). “Ace Attorney” hits close to home, and as a fan of many years, I’ve been eagerly anticipating an animated series.
I’ve played all of the localized “Ace Attorney” games and “Apollo Justice.” I’ve played “Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney” multiple times, so I was keen on little details while watching the anime. I’ll be discussing two episodes per one review. Shall we get started?
