Ace Attorney is now available on Crunchyroll, and to get everyone excited for the next puzzling case, we’d like to introduce you to some of the characters!



Adapted from the popular video game franchise, Ace Attorney follows rookie lawyer Naruhodo Ryuuichi (Phoenix Wright) and his assistant Mayoi (Maya) as he defends his clients in a court of law. With limited evidence and logic as his only weapon, can Naruhodo turn the case around when all the odds are stacked against him?

CHARACTER 01
Naruhodo Ryuuichi (Phoenix Wright)
CV: Yuki Kaji



Naruhodo is a rookie defense attorney with a strong sense of justice and a kind heart. His easy-going personality and ability to keep a cool head make him seem more mature than many of his friends, but Naruhodo can be sarcastic and a bit of a neat freak at times. As a lawyer, Naruhodo is dedicated to his clients, often taking risks to defend the people he believes to be innocent.

* * * * *


CHARACTER 02
Ayasato Mayoi (Maya Fey)
CV: Aoi Yuki



Mayoi is a spirit medium in training, and the plucky, energetic younger sister of Chihiro. After a traumatic event brings her and Naruhodo together, she becomes his assistant. Mayoi loves to eat, and sometimes leaps before she looks. Despite her childlike personality, her tenacity and optimism make her a valuable friend when things are looking bleak.

* * * * *


CHARACTER 03
Mitsurugi Reiji (Miles Edgeworth)
CV: Masahi Tamaki



Mitsurugi Reiji is a young, ruthless prosecutor who has yet to lose a single case. He was trained by the best, and because of his calculating and aloof nature, he is feared in the legal world. He is a childhood friend of Naruhodo, and is often accompanied by detective Itonokogiri while investigating. Despite his dark past and humorless exterior, he keeps a figure from the Steel Samurai children’s show in his office for some reason…

* * * * *


CHARACTER 04
Ayasato Chihiro (Mia Fey)
CV: Chie Nakamura



Chihiro is Naruhodo’s mentor, and is known in the courtroom for her determination and tenacious investigation of evidence. She is clever and has instilled in Naruhodo the importance of believing in your clients. Chihiro is also a member of the Ayasato clan of spirit mediums, and she cares deeply about her sister Mayoi.

* * * * *


CHARACTER 05
Itonokogiri Keisuke (Dick Gumshoe)
CV: Masami Iwasaki



Itonokogiri Keisuke is a frank, honest detective with a knack for getting assigned to complicated murder cases. While he may seem intimidating at first glance, Keisuke’s heart is in the right place, and although he makes more than a few mistakes, he’s “a guy you can trust.” Keisuke works closely with Mitsurugi, and may understand him better than anyone else.

* * * * *


CHARACTER 06
Yahari Masashi (Larry Butz)
CV: Toru Nara



Yahari is Naruhodo’s oldest friend and first client. He also knew Mitsurugi in grade school. He’s a bit of an eccentric, often appearing with a new job every time he meets Naruhodo. He speaks without thinking, which gets him into a lot of trouble. When most people look at Yahari they see a lazy, clumsy young man. At least his artwork is decent.

I'm really enjoying this anime a lot despite never actually having played any of the game that it is based on before ^^

My favourite characters so far are the prosecutor Mitsuruji Reiji and our defence hero Naruhodo Ryuuichi ^^

I always look forward to watching each new episode of this going up every Saturday ^^

I know. They tried to do the same in the English version in AA2, where a clown asks Phoenix to tell a joke, and he replies:

"Why have I never lost a case? Because I'm always Wright."

That was pretty much the only pun related to his name they included in the English games, though.

Just wait until they release the anime for AA 3 (season 3, maybe?) and you meet Godot.
He's pretty much everybody's favorite character.
I mean, just look at this:


The gif is slightly altered, but it's pretty much what happens in the game at one point.

And then listen to his theme. Just listen to this!

This is basically Godot's "I don't give two sh*ts!" song.

I'm so glad the Ace Attorney fandom is active again because of the anime! And the fandom is growing, too, because of all the new people watching the anime! I can't wait to see how the rest of the anime will turn out ^^

I've actually been surprisingly underwhelmed by this show this season. I was kind of looking forward to it because of all the internet hype (I've never played the games) but so far it's been................................

Trust me, it's only going to get nuttier. The first couple of cases are mostly warm-ups.

Well, the names are puns as well. "Windy old bag" is one that comes to mind.

Also, what is the Japanese version of "Whenever something smells, it's usually the Butz."? Waiting to catch up on a lot of anime at the moment. *currently playing Case 4 of Dual Destiny*
