  • 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 ...

  • I wish there will be season 3
    I thought it was good. You can't please everybody but I liked it. I really enjoyed when Mia came back. I wish there'll be more of that. Or do Trials and tribulations. I know Mia died on the game and she came back and it seems that Trial and turbilations was the last time she appeared on the game but come on this is anime. You get to do new things and not just stick into the game. I love seeing ...

    Hilariously bad, both as an adaptation and standalone anime
    Disclaimer: I could only *barely* manage to get through the first episode, and didn't watch any further.
    ---
    Ace Attorney is ok as a "sparknotes version" of Phoenix Wright, the video game. It covers all the key clues and event in the story. The animation and voicing are also ok.
    And that about sums up all the good things I can say about this.

    As an anime, Ace Attorney is not good. I am ...

  • It's own thing, but still missing critical parts
    I personally love the anime. Not as good as the games, but we knew that since this was announced. It truly does shine and show that it can stand apart from the games, introducing more key elements than the game while keeping the core aspect. However, I feel it took too much away from the games when adapting it. The magatama was a huge factor of the series and really should've been kept. I do like ...
