The cast and staff members for the TV anime adaptation of visual novel Gyakuten Saiban (Ace Attorney, Phoenix Wright) were briefly listed, according to a Japanese entertainment news site. The series will adapt CAPCOM's visual novel and premiere in Spring 2016, to replace Kindaichi Shounen Jikenbo Returns (2015).

Staff
Director: Ayumu Watanabe (Uchuu Kyoudai)
Series Composition: Atsuhiro Tomioka (Pokemon XY&Z)
Music: Kaoru Wada (D.Gray Man)
Studio: A-1 Pictures

Cast
Ryuuichi Naruhodou: Yuki Kaji (Nanatsu no Taizai)
Mayoi Ayasato: Aoi Yuuki (One Punch Man)
Reiji Mitsuruji: Masashi Tamaki (Kindaichi Shounen no Jikenbo Returns)
Chihiro Ayasato: Chie Nakamura (Naruto: Shippuden)
Keisuke Itonokogiri: Masami Iwasaki (Prince of Tennis)
Masashi Yahari: Tooru Nara (Chihayafuru)

The games follow the exploits of a passionate rookie defense attorney named Ryuuichi Naruhodou (Phoenix Wright in English versions) who fights for his clients in a courtroom setting loosely resembling that of the Japanese legal system, using investigative skills, cross-examinations, and evidence.

Well, as long as the adaptation is at least decently true to the source material, I'll give this series a shot. Besides, I was seriously expecting SAO III, or some unnecessary sequel like that, before an Ace Attorney anime, so I hope to be at least pleasantly surprised.

Plus, the cast isn't that bad. Yuki Kaji may not be the greatest out there, but I think he still has potential. The others seem fine, and the music doesn't appear to be an issue (which was one of the staples of the franchise of video games in the first place, with "Objection!" and "Pressing Pursuit" and all that).

Let's just hope they don't butcher it to a crazy amount. Sure, small cuts would be fine (I doubt anyone really WANTS Oldbag or one of the other really annoying characters on-screen for too long), but let's pray the story (another staple point of the franchise) and characters stay intact.

I think it's worth mentioning the original cast:
Phoenix Wright - Takayuki Kondō
Maya Fey - Satomi Hanamura
Miles Edgeworth - Eiji Takemoto
Dick Gumshoe - Kōji Ishii
Larry Butz - Masaya Onosaka
Mia Fey - Sayaka Ohara


Really like really why couldn't they keep this cast from the PVs/Drama CDs. Like really why just why I can't ever imagine Kaji Yuuki's voice fitting Naruhodo like WHY. WHYYYYY.
$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ thats why

Don't care about the studio like what plebs does, all I care about is on how will they adapt it, please don't screw this


And that's why you should care about the studio.

They should've kept Bones (the studio which animated Dual Destinies) as the studio. As far as I'm aware, A-1 Pictures has pulled shit like Fairy Tail and Sword Art Online.
We're screw~ed.

Because he sells. I'd wait for a PV before you make your final judgement though.

I really do like the concept...

I was kinda excited with the cast but after seing the producers and the staff, was kind of a let down.

A-1? I remember that atrocious animation in Magic Kaito. But maybe it'll be something like NnT.
A-1 is perfect
Don't you even diss it

Oh no!!! I really love Kaji but Phoenix didn't sound like him in my imagination!! D": Well... I'm sure he has his manly voices as well.. let's all hope. :"D

I really hope he does it well! -prays-

Yuki Kaji really is in everything these days. This feels like a miscast but I hope that he's better for the role than I think he will be.

Takayuki Kondo is still voicing Phoenix/Ryuuichi in the new game, so I would have prefered if he voiced the character in this too.

I guess the people who make adaptations of something where the characters already have game voice actors don't care for consistensy

Yuki Kaji? Bring my fuckin' Ono Daisuke!

Dec 21, 2015 9:42 PM by Cishet

Ono Daisuke would have been perfect as Phoenix. I never imagined him having a teen boy-ish voice like Yuki Kaiji.

Yes, long time ago tho.


He's a bit of a wimp/beta in 1-3 tbh, thats all. I was confused as to why you'd think he'd have a manly voice.


He has the type of someone with manly voice even if he acts like a wimp sometimes idk, still Yuki Kaji's voice doesn't fit Phoenix imo.
