    If this happens to be good, it might actually be one of the very few anime I'll be willing to watch.

    I'll probably watch this regardless of if it's good or not. I loved playing the games and there's almost no way they can mess this up. The stories are awesome

    Danganronpa anyone? :P

    Anyway, I'll probably watch that as soon as there will be fan subs. Anyone knows if a western release is planned?

    I'm super glad I watched the Danganronpa anime before playing the games. I really enjoyed the anime :P

    I also watched the anime before playing the game, and even that way I could notice that the investigation segments were extremely rushed.

    I read on Reddit that the Ace Attorney anime will cover the first two games and it's likely that it will be long running, seeing the time it will be broadcasted is right before Detective Conan (which has 700+ episodes), so hopefully it will be a nice adaptation.

    If they did some original cases somewhere inside the timeline of the first few games, sure, I'd be interested. But shit, there've been how many versions of the original game? Plus the movie attempt, which got most of the first game's big stuff down, more or less. I just feel like anyone who's interested has already seen most of what they're offering.

    He threw a hologram kek

    Anyway, I'm wondering how will evidence presentations work in anime? Holograms again? Or will they make it look like the games, with evidence shown in the top left/right corner? Hmm
    Aaalso, how will Maya/Pearl to Mia channeling be animated? Will Maya/Pearl just stretch and morph into Mia (terrifying holy shit), or will there be some fancy light or something?

    So many questions, no answers, why isn't April closeeer :sad:
