Or Franziska actually being summoned by Twilight to help Pheonix. Reply Skull Razer July 2, 2019 I just said she was knocked out when it happened that's why she can't remember anything Reply Gracious Rosebud July 3, 2019 A couple things about the voice acting:-Make sure all the va’s pronounce characters’ names the same way, because it makes it flow better and makes more sense as an actual conversation-some characters need a little bit more variation in their vocal…pitch?tone? Yeah… just try not to stay in the same place of voice for too long.– I know from the last series there were bloopers, so for this one as well I think you should have va’s redo lines where they hesitate, stop mid sentence, or do something unplanned that doesn’t end up sounding better than the original idea. There was none of that hesitance in the first one and it was really immersive. One more things about the script itself: try to make the lines a little more natural aNd less repetitive, like not using certain words more than necessary. A few examples of this were in the introductions, like “sure do, we sure do,” etc. And also things like “you guys” sound kind of weird when repeated too often in one character’s lines. Just something else I noticed that I figured I’d point out! Other than that things are looking awesome and I’m so so SOOOO excite for this series to be here because the last one was so good and the writing for the case was amazing. Keep up the awesome work everyone!

Reply ka lai chan July 15, 2019 scp in equestria what the fuck Reply dolphinsniper July 16, 2019 A few spelling mistakes here and there, not just the 'Cakewalk' thing, and also the voice actors really needs to try and improve some of their performance. Athena and Rainbow Dash, in particular, stand out as bad. More important, however. The human sprites and the voices simply do NOT match up when speaking, and it looks absolutely horrible and really draws me out of the experience. If there's anything you want to improve beyond anything else, focus on that first and foremost. Maybe try and actually have shots of ponies hugging Pheonix to, it really doesn't work so much if we don't see it. Still, it was a strong start for what I hope will be a strong series. I love how much work is being put into this, and I can't wait to see the rest!

Valió cada maldito segundo Good job! Reply leon4000 July 20, 2019 Looks like it's finally begun, another adventure back in Equestria. And Coco Pommel is in quite a predicament. This time, Phoenix has some support backing him, Apollo Justice and Athena Cykes, plus Trucy. Getting to the point, Phoenix better tell them of a tale that changed his life in a way he never expected, the reason why he ended up meeting Apollo and Trucy. And the events that started the dark age of the law. Other than that, I don't know your name, but from what I've read you have had enduring circumstances that challenged you. Hopefully you don't give up just because life knocks you down. And whatever you do, do it because you have a passion to share your stories, and always know that you've got some support on your side. I can even understand that such a fanfiction project may have to go on a hiatus if something comes up. You made it through with Turnabout Storm, and you had some difficulties with that project. And I'm sure you've learned from it. Take what you've learned back then and now, and keep on going. Reply JkMenttonet July 20, 2019 I'm surprised to see a fan made part 2 for the Phoenix Wright and MLP crossover Reply Yoshistar 888 July 21, 2019 We need another one of these after this ends a final one to make a triliogy and set it post S9 Reply 4as July 21, 2019 The decision to place this story after events of MLP S4 and latest AA games is really detrimental to the episode's pacing and potential viewer numbers. You will lose viewers who don't want to get spoiled (for example, Japan is only on S2 right now, and PC players don't have access to other games than the initial trilogy), so anyone who's left will already know the backstories of Apollo and Athena, making that segment at 26:36 a pretty pointless addition. If you really have to have the whole gang here at least skip nonessential elements with simple fade to black and one line summary in the next dialog. Viewers don't have to watch what they already know, the dialog still feels natural, and there is less work needed on the episode – win-win for everyone. Reply Lord Hypertron Universum July 21, 2019 After this Series ends, i want "The Great Ace Attorney" crossover. (maybe as a prequel)I really want Sherlock Holmes Goofiness in MLP, and maybe even Iris cuteness.

Work diligently to finish the second part. We are eager to see more. Reply The Ace Pony August 5, 2019 WARNING! LONG POST! Turnabout Storm was the thing that made me wanna see what Ace Attorney was and Ace Attorney ended up being my favorite franchise of all time. I have a love and respect for Turnabout Storm for so many reasons because of this. Now that the sequel is out, I have to put away my blind love and happiness to be critical. I want this to be the best it can to I'll do my part to be constructive. Pros: I love the animation. One problem I had with Turnabout Storm was how the sprites was so static with no animation with the only exception being the trials. This has been fixed where the sprites are always active and have full time mouth movement. I also love the attention to the canon. This clearly knows where it is in both AA and MLP. I thought I wouldn't care with Trixie's reappearances in the show, but these are acknowledged while the still continuing where things left off. Having more AA characters is a plus. TS was heavily reliant on MLP characters with a noticable lack of AA characters. I love that this actually adds more and uses this to create interesting interactions and chemistry. Following up on the Trixie/Trucy hat plotline. Setting up Sonata's character to return. Voice acting is pretty good at many moments (special shout out to Rarity and Coco). Tone is so suiting of AA even down to a quirky conversation turning explosive before ending calmly at times. BLUEBLOOD. Nice pacing so far. Nothing feels rushed. Multiple cases. TS had one case that was like a finale case. EoJ is gonna have many? There is so much you can do with that. Also attention to past events with TS. Personalities are handled well. Athena is emotionally all over. Apollo would be pretty skeptical about this situation. Phoenix is just like TS while older. Trucy is a fun naive girl that just accepts and has fun with it. Cons: Music is reused original and remixes rather than a original soundtrack. There are some original songs here and there, but I'd like more focus on that in the future. The name pronounciation of Pommel was… strange. Coco did not pronounce her own name right which Wright didn't question, but then Playwright pronounces it the same way and Phoenix notices and is confused. Why did he acknowledge it for Playwright and not Coco herself? Was this an error? Idk, but I'd like it to be cleared up in the future. Voice acting itself had its poor moments, but I was expecting worse and there are highlights like I said before. I do think Coco's actress does well despite the name thing. Something about Cakewalk? Also TS mentioned certain things about the AA games such as Wright's past, and a one off mention of Dahlia. Aside from those, there isn't much in TS. This was probably done to give knowledge of who Wright is without spoiling for those that are coming for the Ponies and have no AA knowledge. That way they know the character, but still can get into the series without knowing much. EoJ bluntly spoils events of DD, explaining the arcs of Athena and Apollo. This was probably done to get better connections with the characters, but I think this should've been handled differently. The coincidences… It's nothing too bad, but the light flickering at the right moment to show them the clue of the footprints felt a little too convenient. I think it would've been more interesting to have a scene where Athena tried to get the rope up, but got a little too clumsy with it and hit the lights, knocking them out for the time being. The fact that she also so happened to have a flashlight to see the paint in her pockets before she came to Equestria is pretty strange. It's oddly specific and solves the problem perfectly. She got gear from Ema in DD, but even then it took time for that to happen, she didn't just HAVE Ema's gear on her. Try to see if you can avoid big coincidences like this in the future. Hopes: I'd like to see returning characters from TS to at least see where they've been (Sonata, Cruise Control, etc). Protagonist swap per case. Maybe have Wright protagonist in like a trial or two, give one to Apollo, one to Athena, the grand finale going to Sonata herself. Sonata becoming the final character would be great as it not only would show her growth as a character, but also might help the whole Mia/Sonata thing. Also explain more about the Mia/Sonata plotline. Mia and Sonata are said to look and sound alike, but that mystery starts and ends there making the comparison confusing to begin with. What was it leading to? If you can at least try to explain the many unsolved plot points of TS (Dash doppelganger, shady Celestia, Mia chatting with Celestia, Trixie past hatred with Twilight that created the black locks, Mia/Sonata, any others I might have missed here) I would appreciate it as well. Also keep in mind that black psychelocks could be a dark truth that is hidden from the person themselves, so it is possible Trixie does have a deep hatred for Twilight for reasons even she doesn't know…. for now. Do not bring Starlight in this series. You probably won't, but I want to be clear. With how everything is presented it seems to take place between Seasons 4 and 5 of the show, before Starlight's first appearance which ends up leading from her villain role to her friendship with Trixie. So I'd just avoid using her. You probably have avoided it, but just making sure. Finally, focus on the main group. Mane Six plus the WAA is a BIG group. Try to make sure everyone gets to have some time to them. We already are going to have supporting characters so it wouldn't be good if some of these characters started to fade behind everyone. Then again some weren't really focused on in TS so I'll take what I can get. Final thoughts: I really look foreward to this project. I've been waiting a long time and am such a fan of both series that it makes me happy to see them again after so long. I has its hiccups, but it doesn't hurt the overall product entirely. I look forward to more and can't wait for the improvements made as each episode goes by. You have my thanks from the bottom of my heart and you have my interest for the rest of the series.

If I was transported to a land of magical talking ponies for two days, there is no way I'd forget that, not for a second. It'd be that thing where every time I'd wake in the morning, I'd immediately remember, "oh yeah, that happened. That was fun." And don't tell me, 'it was eight years ago.' He was there for two days! I remember TV shows I watched eight years ago! Don't give me that! I'd definitely remember if I was transported to another realm.
