Both the 1st and the new 2nd season of Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney have two different english subs, one with the japanese names and one with the english names (taken from the video games dub).

However, with the changes to the video player, it seems that both choices lead to the same option (english names for me).

Hoping we can get it fixed soon as I would really like to watch it with the japanese names.

I have the same issue, except mine shows the Japanese names. I played the games in English so it would be nice to watch the show with English names (mostly so I can appreciate the puns better).

Our current player set-up does not support multiple subtitle tracks of the same language in the same way the old player set-up did. We are currently not able to provide the alternative track until the issue is fixed.

My Roku and Android device are displaying the Japanese names, so it seems you need to watch on something that is not a web browser to see those.

The only player that displays the English names for me is a web browser. None of the apps will be able to do that. This was true back when the first season was airing as well.

I usually watch on a web browser and I've tried 3 different ones (Safari, Firefox, and Chrome). All of them show the Japanese names. I've tried once on an iPad and it showed the English names. I don't really get how it works.

I'm kinda wondering about the name's thing myself. I was able to watch the first episode of the new season with English names, but the second episode is only letting me watch with the Japanese names? It's a bit weird to watch with the Japanese names having played the games

It would be kinda ok if the names stayed the same throughout the episodes, but on my phone, the first episode had japanese names, the second and third english names, the fourth has japanese names again. I played the games, so I prefer the english names, but I could also watch it with japanese names, but everybody having different names from episode to episode, that's just annoying.

And now, just a minute later, I started the fourth episode again, and the names are english. Is seems to be random.

Thanks for the tip of trying different devices! I've been holding off watching because I can't handle the Japanese names. On my Roku and the computer website, Japanese names, but on through the Windows Store (on my Surface Pro) and Android app, English names, yay!
