This not gonna be good
Tis the mark of an impending miscarriage of a show. It's already a shit.
People outside /vp/ like the Pokemon anime?
I mean sure everyone from the most boring normie to the mightiest wizard remembers the first seasons and above all the intro song but after that?
What's wrong with the Kirby anime? Sure it was episodic but still surprisingly entertaining. Dedede is easily the best character.
Good source material is really, really easy to fuck up in any adaptation. It takes dedication and passion for an adaptation to be good. Something many people doubt A-1 would ever have for the series.
Video game anime has NEVER been good.
>Your Lie in April
And those five doesn't even have similar characteristic at all in their animation. Well, your point >>137226151 is proven, though.
I hadn't realized you were talking about popularity instead of quality.
To be honest I actually like Grimgar, the terribly slow pace makes it feel like it's not just an action show, and more like a reality show.
It's been confirmed the anime will cover the first two games, plus have original episodes. At least there's already an ending so they won't have to pull one out of their ass.
I wouldn't be surprised if they kept 1-4 as the season finale and had Edgeworth being a dick the entire show though.

>Capcom wanted more

>Capcom: Yeah that's cool and all but throw in Phoenix in
>Phoenix shoehorned into almost every game
>Ace Attorney already at 6 games, and is still on Capcom Life Support
>Ace Attorney now has anime
I blame Capcom
>conveniently forgetting about Rakugo
Admittedly they're somewhat synonymous depending on context but what I meant was visual presentation versus execution of the anime as an adaption - how everything is directed, handled and produced I suppose.

AJ is pretty good in my opinion. The worst would be JFA outside of one case. I think it might be because it didn't keep up to par with how well the first game was and the music was overall inferior. Not to say I didn't like JFA, the entire series is fantastic.
How many times must i reiterate this? They are not the same shit.
Semantics. Under a strict definition, they technically are - that is, a video game is essentially defined as a video with interaction, which fits Visual Novels.
Furthermore AA has more involved gameplay mechanics than your typical VN, through presentation of evidence and your investigation scenes.
>implying VN adaptions are any good either
Justice For All is the worst in the series, it's only saved by its final case which has no right in being in such a mediocre game. 2-4 is fantastic.
>but after that?
After that, it became one of the best animes out there since 2015.
So why is it okay to use the localised names while subbing this, but in most every other heavily series (Pokemon, YGO, etc.) it isn't? I'll admit the name puns are at least in the same vein as the original, but
>Eat your hamburgers Apollo
I wonder how true to the actual source the anime will be.
Will they animate the games' main cases or will they just think of new ones? If the former, will they also do the cross examinations etc? Does anybody know this?
A-1 might be the wild card because holy shit they have a range of different shit depending on the director. Shinsekai Yori had like 6 different styles of animation in 25 episodes, absolutely crazy.
So best girl won't be in this adaptation?
It's a visual novel since you spend more than 90% of your time reading and at best 10% of it doing superficial point and click shit.
A game needs way more of an input from the player than what Phoenix Wright has.
In-game voice actor of Phoenix Wright is Shu Takumi, creator of the game. They didn't have money for additional staff so creators of the game voiced characters themselves.
Hideki Kamiya voiced Godot simply because he is bros with Takumi and asked to be in the game.
This looks fucking great, are the scenes they're using taken from the anime, or were they specifically made for the pachinko machine? That'd be extremely disappointing if it was the latter.
>are the scenes they're using taken from the anime, or were they specifically made for the pachinko machine?
Who knows. It's weird that commercial mentions something about 26 episodes and the anime is also will be at least 2-cour.
So 1-4 will probably be the first cour finale and 2-4 the second cour finale.
I hope the anime original episodes are just the characters dicking around...maybe Edgeworth attending a Steel Samurai convention.
There were rumors that they will be making filler cases. Persoanlly, I wouldn't mind if they skipped Turnabout Big Top and did completely original case.
But honestly, slice of life elements is the shit I am hyped about. I mean, I already know games, so.
Turnabout Big Top had such a stupid explanation.
"The cape just happened to perfectly get snagged onto the bust in a way that would make it look like a figure and then it FLEW!"
A-1's animation quality can range from great, like Boku Dake ga Inai Machi, to terrible, like that one otaku teacher anime, but their quality remains consistent throughout. What the product ends up being ultimately depends on the staff behind it, unlike studios like KyoAni which have a distinct style to their shows.
I think the cast being annoying as fuck is charming in a masochistic way.
I'll give you the three first, but to be fair, I don't think SAO is very good.
I think Hai to Gensou no Grimgar is a way better take on being trapped in a video game.
There's a far greater difference between characters, and even though some characters are shitheads, they're still likeable.
Considering A-1 seems all the rage lately I'm skeptical it'll flop and be anything less than decently received. It's definitely going to be one of the more watched shows of the spring along with Knocking at the walls of the fortress.
Cause they're the number one choice for adaptations nowadays. They can hype market the shit out of just about anything, bring in all the trendy staff and personalities and did I mention they can hype market the shit out of anything? Who else are you going to go with?
The event ticket is helping the first volume a little (it very briefly hit the top 200 yesterday) but the effect seems like it's wearing off already. Seems like there's little saving this season's sales from just being dismal all around
It's not so much outsourcing as they have virtually zero retained staff outside of some producers and directors and even the directors seem kind of freelance. Even outfits like Sunrise still retain animators even if the core staff changes up a lot and the main retention is producers. It's how A-1 is able to mass produce shit so quickly, but it's kind of soulless and pure profit motive oriented.

If you do anything else, PLEASE do this
Why can't A-1 just do a show without extreme characterization and scenarios for a change is what I want to know. I mean I know this is anime but sometimes the choices are just fucked. For their action shows either you get Gary Stu the bulldozer that just pushes his way through all obstacles largely effortlessly or woe is me life is so hard look at all my dramas and angst weakling boy for protags.
Why you complain about Yuki Kaji? He's good seiyuu and voiced plenty likeable characters like Alibaba, Meliodas, Yokodera, Variation, Shuu (Nisekoi).
Just because he played whiny shits like Shuu (GC), doesn't make that Phoenix suddenly changes completely his personality.
I'm not a fan of series but from what I remember there is a lot of hammy dialogues, Kaji can pull of this for sure.
