  • If you havent played the game this anime will disappoint you
    This anime is a sped up version of the games. if you havent played the games this anime will do absolutely nothing for you. it will seem too fast and you'll be left in the dark. its not an anime that lets you play along with the mystery because that is what the games are for. I'd say only watch an episode or two to get a feel for the series if youre interested then do the games so you dont get ...

  • An Introduction to the World
    If you have played the games, you would think this anime is pretty useless. It's pretty much an animated version of the first game. The point of this anime I feel is to introduce people to the game, characters, and plot lines of a game series that has been around for a while. I enjoyed it for what it was. If you are a person who has wanted to know what the games were about, but didn't want to ...

  • It's a great retelling!
    This was honestly a great retelling of the games! It takes the core elements and lore of the games while making it a bit different than the original material. Of course, it removes the slower aspects of the source material, as it is meant to be a suspenseful anime. The anime provides a nice nostalgic feel for those who have played the games before, as they would remember the cases and evidence ...

  • It's got some warts but not bad overall.
    Never played the game so this review will be only about the anime. Watched the first 13 episodes on funimation and i liked it especially the kooky names in the dub (its a pretty good dub) the cases were pretty much all the same as were the court room antics which isn't saying that they were bad just not different but it was still interesting to watch the cases play out and actually were a little ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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.)
