The anime premiered in Japan on April 2, 2016,[2][3][4] with new episodes airing weekly on Saturdays. Outside Asia, the streaming site Crunchyroll provides two subtitled versions for online viewing on the same day for premium members, and one week later for everyone else; one version using the original Japanese character names and the other substituting them for the localized versions (e.g., "Phoenix Wright" instead of "Ryūichi Naruhodō").[5].

Differences from the gamesEdit

General Edit

  • The defense and prosecution have switched benches in the anime compared to the games. In the games, other than when showing the courtroom in full, the two benches are seen from the judge's perspective, so that the defense attorney is on the left side. In the anime, however, the camera angles are usually shot from the opposite perspective, and with the switched benches, Phoenix Wright remains on the left side.
  • When emphasizing the end of a character's argument, the games show a closeup of the speaker with speed lines in the background. The anime achieves a similar effect by having characters produce gusts of wind when pointing their fingers dramatically (or snapping one's fingers in Manfred von Karma's case), which can literally knock other characters off their feet.

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney saga Edit

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney: Justice for All saga Edit

  • Hickfield does not appear in the Reunion, and Turnabout saga.
  • Psyche-Locks are largely absent, only appearing in Farewell, My Turnabout when Matt Engarde's true colors are revealed.
  • Instead of being an accomplice to murder, Morgan Fey is in fact the mastermind behind the death of Dr. Grey and the implication of Maya, with Mimi Miney being forced to cooperate. 
  • Pearl Fey is absent from the opening of Turnabout Big Top, and takes a more active role as Wright's co-counsel during Reunion, and Turnabout and Farewell, My Turnabout, while, in the game, Pearl only appeared in trials to channel Mia.
  • Lotta Hart is replaced by Larry Butz in the adaptation of Farewell, My Turnabout.
  • In the adaption, Celeste Inpax is Adrian Andrews's older sister and also shares the same surname.
  • Will Powers does not present Wright and Pearl with the transciever, nor does he stand and testify in the Farewell, My Turnabout saga.
  • Franziska von Karma presents only the video footage of de Killer murdering Juan Corrida, and not the pistol that was fired at her shoulder or the bellboy's uniform worn by de Killer. Thus, she wears Gumshoe's coat instead of using it to contain the evidence. She also has an arm sling bandage around her right arm as opposed to in the game where she appears to be fine.
  • Matt Engarde does his breakdown twice. He also receives a unique speech bubble: "待ってくれえええ!" ("Matte kureeee!")
  • Phoenix Wright and Maya Fey reunite in the police headquarters instead of the defendant lobby. Pearl also continues to channel Mia Fey for a while during the reunion, allowing Mia to see Maya once again.
  • Dick Gumshoe is bandaged around his entire body instead of just around his head.
