After being moderately impressed by Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Dual Destinies but then finding myself so totally lost in Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney that I stopped during the butler chapter and would return every few months only to make it past another two lines of dialogue, my 2013/2014 foray into the franchise probably didn't last as long as Ludwig would have hoped. What happened to the Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy I bought on sale three years ago with the intention of starting? What happened to the Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Spirit of Justice I bought over one year ago during release week that I also had the intention of starting? Well...I dunno, actually. Had I really been that turned off by that one obnoxious Layton witness who wouldn't stop playing his stupid minstrel guitar while testifying? (Because he can totally take that G-string and shove it.)
A combination of three factors finally got the ball rolling, in which I booted up the series and played through THE ENTIRE LOCALIZED THING in less than half a year. I was basically inspired by 1) the Ace Attorney anime opening and my covers of it, 2) Ludwig telling me to do something with The "Miracle" Never Happen for Trump's impending doom (in which the "Miracle" actually DID happen), and 3) Trump's dismissal of James Comey from the Federal Bureau of Investigations which got me in the mood for some legal drama.
Once things started they never really fell off, and thanks to Miiverse I'm now in possession of hoards of archived commentary (covering the original trilogy, SoJ, and parts of whatever else was Miiverse-able) that I can now subject the entire world to! (MWAHAHAHAHA!) I call it "Rawk's Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Experience." We at KoopaTV think it's a good implementation of a Miiverse post archive, and shows what happens when Nintendo doesn't pull an NSider and delete everyone's shit. After all, I probably spent just as much time treading through Miiverse's gruelingly-slow UI on my non-New Nintendo 3DS as I did on my non-bannable NSider posts.
Oh yeah, and after at least half a year of me thinking Funimation canceled/forgot they were doing it, Part One of the Ace Attorney anime English dub finally landed last month. You should go watch it somewhere real fast so that you can have certain voices in your head as you read. Courtesy fragment:
So without further ado, part one of Rawk's Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Experience!:
Built-in commentary means Rawk didn't have to do 38 unique image captions. Isn't that nice? Stay tuned for the next part of the Ace Attorney Experience, after Funimation dubs the second set of 13 episodes of the anime.
Here is the next part of the Experience based on Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney: Justice For All, released on cue.
Part three of the Experienced, based on Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney: Trials and Tribulations, is here.
