Ratings & Reviews
Worst legal system ever.
by Raffi -
Ace Attorney apparently takes place in a world where the Judge also acts as the Jury and it's perfectly acceptable for the prosecution to withhold evidence from the defense and using it as secret attack during the actual trial.
Suspension of disbelief only goes so far. Ace Attorney just comes across as silly, dumb and boring
This half's good, but watch out for part 2...
Raffi's review misses the entire point of the series. Of COURSE it's ridiculous. It was a satire of the Japanese legal system of the time. Not having a jury is a plot point in one of the later games!
That being said, this is about the anime. The only major flaws I can find in this half are a few animation errors and not adapting some of the memorable parts of the games. I liked having subtitle options for both the Gyakuten Saiban and Ace Attorney names and devoting an episode between arcs to Mitsurugi/Edgeworth's backstory was a good choice as well.
That being said, I would like to warn those who haven't seen the anime that the second set, which covers the second game (GS2/JFA), much like the Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid simuldub and the DiC/Cloverway Sailor Moon dub, straight-irons a character who was heavily coded as a lesbian in the game.
Pretty much what I wanted from an Ace Attorney Anime
by Neil Dunsmore
When I heard there was going to be an Ace Attorney Anime, what I wanted was the story from the games fully animated. That is exactly what I got. (Plus the end of part 1 adds a back story to Phoenix and his friends that wasn't in the games) They got the writing and characters down pat. Honestly, the only thing going against it is that I find it off-putting how the jury is animated in CG. (That and I wish they'd adapted Trials and Tribulations since that one gives closure to Phoenix's story) Otherwise, I strongly recommend this to fans.
For non-fans, I recommend ignoring anything you know about the legal system and accept what this offers. The main draw of Ace Attorney is its gripping story lines, its blend of humor and drama and its likable/quirky characters. If all you do is question the legal system, you're missing the point.
Great adaptation of the first GBA game
Really enjoyed this greatly. Did a great job adapting the first GBA game. It covered all the plot points,and kept to the setting the game set up. Can not wait for the last 13 episodes.
