I'm liking it. Looking forward to the trial next week.

I do find a strange dichotomy between the light-hearted art style, colors and overall feel of the show with the darker and more serious subject matter.

How long is this supposed to run? I saw that it made the top ten in Japan, so it's pretty much a hit already.


As for the episode:

--I sense romantic tenstion with Maya and Phoenix(I turned on the alt English sub because...I want the game names not the Japanese names)

--I like the detective; I'm guessing he'll work with Phoenix in the future..or at least be an ally

--I can see now why Hasebe is compared to Edgeworth. (If you're familar with Touken Ranbu, you know what I mean. For those who don't know...there's a character who looks just like Edgeworth.)

There are times that I truly wish that I could just purge all my memories of the games(own every single one), just so that I would be legitimately surprised with all the future episodes that are to come.

Kind of weird admittedly of watching an anime series where you know all the spoilers for years now.

I just saw the first episode. I'd rate it 6.5 out of 10. Was okay, but at the same time was kinda weird how they act in the court room. Like... still scratching my head how people can laugh inside a courtroom even if it's something as serious as murder that's being talked about.

Episode 2: Turnabout Sisters — 1st Trial

Never played the games and the only name I know through the game names is Phoenix Wright. So it was kind of hard identifying who people were talking about in the comments. Maybe I'll turn on the Alt.

Anyways I like how they are pacing it. So next episode can take up a whole trail rather than setting up, gathering evidence and then proceeding with the trial in one episode.

I'm getting romantic vibes between Mayoi and Ryuuchi (sorry I'll be using the Japanese names) Hope they get together, they are kind of cute. Question is how old is she

Really sad and surprised to see Chihiro get offed so early. Why does this show like killing off beautiful women? (thought model girl in episode 1 was kind of cute) Anyways looking forward to the trial

Ep 2

Wow, that was brutal. Never expected Chihiro to die so early. Not only that, but her cute little sister is on trial for the murder too. Mitsurugi, the genius prosecutor, is also going head to head with Ryuuchi. That's like final boss levels of difficulty there. I sort of expected those two would battle in the courtroom much later. Maybe Ryuuchi will lose? Not sure how he's going to pull it off.

There is still a strange disconnect between the seriousness and the comedy. I'm getting used to it though, because the overall tone of the series does seem to be lighthearted.

Episode 3

Dang, poor Wright...

Looks like the Turnabout Sisters is moving along nicely. I do wonder how Phoenix Wright will get himself out of this one since that no-good Redd White got him arrested. I almost forgot how shitty that Detective was too, lol.

Also, Maya is kawaii as fuck; I almost forgot she used to be waifu back in the day! XD

Episode 3: Turnabout Sisters - 2nd Trial

Lol these facial reactions XD. Also the personality change in pink haired chick. Those were too great. Loving how the show doesn't take itself too seriously.

Also I loved how he just pulled out all the evidence from his pocket. He could have pulled out an earring and say this was the earring she was wearing on the night of the murder. But I do understand that both American and Japanese law are different.

Not liking that Konako guy. Sorry still going to be using the Japanese names. Power and influence can get you to alot of places, even above the law. You could even point your finger at someone and say they did it and win.

Looking forward to the conclusion of the trial.

[EDIT: This is in reply to swaggercandy and their comment about Mia dying to fast.]
I would strongly suggest you play the games. If you have a smartphone, you should be able to play this case for free.

Turnabout Sisters was actually supposed to be the very first case in the game. So the first time the player met her, she would be already dead. The creator of the games changed it to the second case so the player can establish a connection to Mia (Chihiro) prior to her death. Also her English surname, Fey, also means "doomed to die" (according to wikipedia). So her character was essentially written to be killed. I still get kinda sad about Mia's death during Turnabout Sisters, she really is an interesting character. Also, I've got older sisters, so I guess it hits close to home.

Also, Mia won't ever be truly "gone." Phoenix can't get rid of her that easily...

Chain of custody is a foreign concept to anime.
