[Review] “Ace Attorney” Episodes 7 & 8

Written By: Lauren

A ton of things happened in “Ace Attorney” episodes 7 and 8, so I’ll do my best to recap and point out important details I noticed. Episode 7 was the conclusion to the Steel Samurai/Turnabout Samurai case, and episode 8 was the introduction to Turnabout Goodbyes and the DL-6 incident, which is significant towards Edgeworth’s character.

I didn’t love Episode 7 at all, and I’ll explain why. Surprisingly, I was happy with Episode 8 and was relieved it didn’t follow the downhill track I thought the anime would be taking. Let’s review!

[Review] “Ace Attorney” Episodes 5 & 6

Written By: Lauren

Let’s just say episode 5 and 6 were my favorite episodes thus far. It also covers my favorite case in “Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney,” the Turnabout Samurai. Many of my favorite characters were introduced, such as the talkative Oldbag, lovable Will Powers, and adorable Cody Hackins.

Like usual, I’ll be doing a summary mixed with my thoughts about the episode. I’ll also compare and contrast scenes from the anime and the game!

[Review] “Ace Attorney” Episodes 3 & 4

Written By: Lauren

Hold it right there, because I’m back with another “Ace Attorney” review!

Episodes 1 and 2 were a pleasant surprise, so I was excited to jump back into the courtroom with 3 and 4. We progress into the meat of the “Turnabout Sisters” trial, meet the voluptuous, pink April May, flashy Redd White, and watch our boy Phoenix wipe the smug smirk off Edgeworth’s face.

Just like the first review, I’ll compare and contrast the game and the anime, bring up the facts, my opinions, and mix ‘em all together.

Are you ready for a little courtroom tumble?

[Review] “Ace Attorney” Episodes 1 & 2

Written By: Lauren

“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?
