    Amazing Adaption, maybe even better than the Drama!
    I already liked the live-action movie some years back, so I was of course looking forward to this Anime. And it blew me away!
    It looks like it's gonna be a direct adaption of the games, and I'm totally fine with that! Additionally, the little changes (Naruhodo a bit more knowledable because there is no player that needs to learn the game, the "Testimony" & "True Story" markers) are wonderful ...

    This anime needs to pull a turnabout or the miracle never happen
    So it's here. The anime adaptation of Ace Attorney/Gyakuten Saiban, which is a very popular court drama Visual Novel written by Shu Takumi.. Now the question remains for a fan like me. "How did you feel with the first episode?"
    I'll be honest here, based on my impressions with the first episode.
    So, honestly..............it's not that good, so far. To summarize The First Turnabout, it is a ...

    OBJECTION! 4/5 stars
    The Anime adaptation for Ace Attorney seems good and stays true to the game but I'm a little confused about why they didn’t keep the part where the Witness Threw his toupee at Ryūichi Naruhod. Also the game's characters acted more realistic. Plus they also did a decent job allowing the spectator "The Person Watching The Show" learn more about the case to a point when they can guess before the ...

    True to the games as can be
    After watching episode one, I can say I'm very happy with this anime adaption. The dialogue and characters were true to the story, and the anime handled the lengthy court proceedings well for a 23 minute episode. Will be looking forward to the remaining season.

    Retelling of Game with Filler
    The animation is pretty good, though it does have the computer-rendered quality to it. It's almost painfully obvious during the sequence when the courtroom is first shown. The characters feel right, as do their voices but it falls flat with the plot in episode one.

    I had been prepared to dismiss it as just an animated version of the game but with the second episode, there is some addition to ...

    Ace Attorney: Comes to life!
    A really great start to the series, as I have been replaying them in the last few weeks the case was fresh in my brain, was really nifty to see it come to life. The animation and voices were spot on.

    My only hope is that as it goes forward it retains all the crazy comedy of the games and we get to see a lot of the dynamic duo Phoenix and Maya! I also really hope there are filler episodes too, ...

    Ace Attorney has no impact
    Main Character acts like a child who needs his hand held but is presented as if he is top of his class in law school. The connections made by the attorney is easy and boring. The reactions of other characters after justice was achieved was ridiculous as if winning is more important than Justice. This anime/novel is sub-par unless aimed at children 10 and younger. Doesn't hold onto viewers who ...

    I can't say it's perfect, but I think a lot of people are missing the concept here.
    This review is mainly intended for people unfamiliar with the series. What you have to understand is that this anime is based on games already more than a decade and a half old. This is an equivalent of the FFVII remake, no one is going to be 100% happy. No one played the game exactly the same. A lot of the heart of the game is in the dialog, and there's literally hours of material that could ...

    HOLD IT! As of the first episode, its a good adaptation
    I really liked it. Saw a lot of defensive reviews so I went to look and see why they were defensive, reading the one star reviews.

    First, and I don't know if/when they get into this but its a distopian future. The court system gives you 3 days to defend your client or they are automatically guilty, and most lawyers only care about victory.

    Second, this is a fairly good summary of the first ...

    So far I'm liking it!
    Although I never got into the game and such, I found Ace Attorney super intriguing!
    I only watched it out of sheer boredom and curiosity but once I watched it, I took a keen liking to it!
    Especially with that hook in the beginning of the episode hah! I can say proudly that I look forward to more.~
