Expectations are a funny thing, if you set them low you can sometimes find a gem but if you set them too high you can be setting yourself up for disappointment and unfortunately that is the case for me when it came to Ace Attorney.
I thoroughly loved the first three games for the 3DS and hearing that it was getting adapted into an anime got me really excited. Unfortunately for me it fell short as an adaptation because and this might be a weird complaint, but for me it fell short because it was too accurate to the source material.
Comedy is something that can be difficult to pull off because if you can see the punchline coming then you might not find the joke funny and this was the case for me when it came to the Ace Attorney anime. Unfortunately also as a mystery show it also falls short for someone already a fan of the franchise because of it’s faithfulness to the source material, there is a lack of suspense because as a fan you can see what is coming and it is just no fun sitting there watching a mystery type show and going to yourself ‘this is going to happen next’ over and over again and getting it right.
Overall I have to say if you want to get into Ace Attorney I recommend the games over the anime as they have more depth and character development about the only thing I liked about the anime was the voice choice for Miles Edgeworth but even this was not enough to keep me watching.
