  • Enjoyable, but perhaps a little too close to home.
    This was a very solid and well made series. It's very faithful to the original source material, and it still had all the beats that I believe any fans of the first two installments of the Ace Attorney video game series would hope to find here. However, sometimes I would grow bored with how too close to the original material they got. I found myself most excited when the show was doing things, or ...

  • One Of The Best In My Eyes
    Ace Attorney is based off the Capcom series of the same name. I will be honest, when I heard that they were making it into an anime I was extremely happy! The characters are very well written, making them be relatable, lovable, and in some cases, hateable. The story is very good. I need a season two covering Trials And Tribulations, and maybe even Apollo Justice!

  • A love letter to the fans of the game
    Nine episodes in, and I am enjoying every minute. For those who played and loved the games, it is a faithful and affectionate don't-miss adaptation.

    That said: it probably won't work for viewers who are not previous fans of the game. The outrageous, cheesy over-reaction shots when Phoenix/Naruhodou scores a point off a witness were funny and appropriate in a Nintendo game that came out back ...

  • It was a good adaptation!
    Honestly, I think they did a good job translating the game to an animated format, and yes a lot of the content was cut, but most of the content that was cut wouldn't really make sense in the show, especially all of the extra pressing and stumbling around in trials. I love the games (and I hope they create another season for Trials and Tribulations) and I think people who just watched the show ...

    Comedy that gets old and stale real quick
    Story; a young graduate right out of law school becomes a defense attorney.

    Pros;
    - The lighthearted approach to the genre of law is a definite draw in. Many would probably find this appealing especially since it is based on the game series.
    - Colorful characters riddle the entire roster as not a single one is boring
    - The logic behind the decisions is easy to follow

    Cons;
    - The ...

    Not worth watching, unless you've played the games.
    Ace Attorney is guilty of the following crimes: Over dramatization to a farce, Complete Deus ex Machina at every turn, ethically questionable from a legal stance, and worse a horrendous kangaroo court system.

    I find myself quite disappointed with the Ace Attorney anime, I really wanted to like it having an interest in law and a desire to play the games, however, there are far too many ...

  • Better then I expected
    As someone who's played the games I'm happy to see that they kept in most of the game in this. Yes somethings aren't shown or are changed but it's got a good amount so in my book it's a job well done to the makers. I do hope they continue with the third game, and maybe even Apollo Justice and Dual Destinies as well (Just so we can see Trucy tbh.)

    Cynical cash in on the great game
    I hate this anime! Because I loved the Ace Attorney games on the Nintendo DS.

    When I heard about this anime I was ecstatic. Soon the non-game playing world get to bask in the greatness of the man himself Phoenix Wright. The greatest fictional Attorney the world has ever born witness to.

    Then I watched this. Eleven episodes of it. Fewer than half the total. Normally I would have dropped ...

    GREAT!! Played the games and still love this as well
    Was skeptical first how it will live up to the games' pacing and all but was pleasantly surprised! Hope to see more of the series. It was nice to see the voices attached to the characters. I hope everyone gives at least give it a shot! Highly recommend!

    game with a proper anime adaption
    there nothing like getting disappointed by anime adaptions of game or visual novels. while there are stand out to this that correctly translate them for long form. many times they just fall short so worried about upsetting the core audience they forget that most watching it in anime form don't even know it was a game and disappointed by it stupid storylines and character seeing it as a long ...
