The official website of the Gyakuten Saiban: Sono "Shinjitsu", Igi Ari! (Ace Attorney) TV anime revealed on Friday that the series will receive a second season. Titled Gyakuten Saiban: Sono "Shinjitsu," Igi Ari! Season 2, the anime will broadcast this fall via Yomiuri TV systems. The staff and cast members will reprise their roles.

The anime series is based on Capcom's mystery thriller game by the same title, which was released in 2001. The game also received a live-action film, a stage play, a musical, and a manga adaptation previously. Produced by A-1 Pictures, the first season aired in spring 2016 for 24 episodes, and was simulcast by Crunchyroll.

Funimation licensed the anime series for North American distribution and released the first Blu-ray and DVD volume earlier this year on January 23, with plans to release the second volume in May 2018.

I don't understand how this anime had so many fans as to warrant a second season. Sure, hardcore fans of the games will probably watch it no matter what, but as a stand alone anime it was mediocre and a big disappointment. It did nothing to hook new fans. I've heard the English dub is slightly better, but I dropped it after only four episodes when it first aired


lol. I don't fucking understand either. I thought the anime adaptation just be made in order to promote the sixth game. Which is why the production looks very low in budget.

but a sequel? seriously wtf.

wotaku no koi is upcoming, so you had to fight me...

It's okay, Wotaku airs April and will be finished before this abomination drops. There's a sweet spot in the middle.

I'm no expert but looks like it could have been popular just because of it's prime time spot before two other highly watched shows. It's probably cheaper for Yomiuri to request a second season if they're happy enough with the ratings.

exactly, it simply a fullfill slot, but it does popular... why not making it again? it's cheap to made already succesful anyways...

Don't let them do this.

I can't bear to let them ruin T&T.

A-1 Pictures must be stopped at all costs.

Literally. Eradicate them from the face of the earth. They are the single worst anime studio currently active, even ignoring the travesty that was the first AA anime.

We must march on them.

We must take back our franchise.

We must do

what

we

must.

Some of ya'll need to keep in mind that anime adaptions of video games are MEANT for people who PLAYED the games.

As someone who has played the games I'm pretty sure this anime wasn't meant for me.

It's beyond me who the fuck they thought they were appealing to, but still.

Mar 16, 2018 6:32 PM by Lindle

Some of ya'll need to keep in mind that anime adaptions of video games are MEANT for people who PLAYED the games. They're advertisements but also it's directed at people who already have knowledge of the media it's behind.

I was sad we didn't get T&T animated after the first 2 games were, so I'm rather excited for this to finally happen. Seeing Dahlia Hawthorne and Godot is going to be some shit to deal with for sure. I'm pumped.

Now I want them to animate Apollo Justice.

Mar 16, 2018 4:32 PM by Kaymyu

My favorite game of the series. Looking forward to seeing Godot animated.... and seeing more Franziska. :)

Not sure about other people, but personally I'm pumped for season 2. The original series was a guilty pleasure through and through, hope they up the production quality this time though.

How the hell this shit got 2nd season. The 1st season was so shit and I did not complete it

Mar 16, 2018 8:51 AM by thepath

I kind of liked season 1. The show was similar to those early shitty episodes of Detective Conan.

Also for the people asking "Why?" - this is payed by Yomiuri TV.
They stick to their licenses but adapt them really cheaply - Conan (nearly 900 episodes and counting), Kindaichi (148 + 25 + 22 + specials ), Time Bokan 24 (which is horrible)...some kind of business model to fill TV slots.

I would be hyped for it, IF they actually gave this season to someone that actually does a good job, and IF those backing this project, the so called producers actually came with some decent budget to deliver something actually good, which clearly wasnt the case with S1!

Like, seriously, why?


I join. I heard many complaints to this anime from fans of an original franchize.

Mar 16, 2018 3:23 AM by RobertBobert

In the future, I hope to see other characters like Apollo Justice, Emma Sky and Athena Cykes on anime series.

Just great, just when so many good animes are getting sequels...they announce this crap.

First season was MEH at best.
