Good evening Painkillers, and welcome back to another addition of Anime Wednesday. Today I got something that I think is a bit cool. This is one of those few times that I get to cover an anime, that is literally ripped from a video game. I’m going to be really honest, I have never played any of these games before, so I had no idea what to expect as I watched this show. Now that I have, I enjoyed it, so I figured that I should share this with you. So then, let’s get right into it, here is Ace Attorney Phoenix Wright.
Phoenix Wright is a rookie defense lawyer that works under his mentor Mia Fey. Unfortunately, Mia is murdered early on in the series. Due to this, Phoenix befriends Mia’s younger sister Maya. She is a medium in training, that can channel dead spirits. Because if this, when Phoenix is in trouble with a case, Maya channels Mia’s spirit. This allows Maya to look exactly like Mia, and helps gives Phoenix some advice and inspiration to help him win the case.
The show is based on the few games in the series, and when I mean based, I mean that they almost completely follow them. (Yeah, I did my research!) So, if you are someone like me that never played the games, now you have, just by watching this show. The show is really funny, and entertaining. If real life court systems were like this, it may or may not be as clogged up as they currently are, since cases don’t go longer than three days. The other characters in the show, are really good in their own unique way. The show is only 24 espoides long, so it’s just right to watch the whole series over a weekend. I watched this on the Funamation app, and I’m sure that this is on Crunchyroll as well. Either way, find it, and enjoy. Until next time Painkillers.
