Update: The sequel has at last arrived! Episode Two: RoboCochran Took an Axe! If you are interesting in seeing it, please proceed to /portal/view/377849

This flash started out as a basic parody of the game "Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney" for the Nintendo DS; what it turned out to be, however, is a lesson in letting one's mind wander wherever it wills itself to go.

Without giving away too much of the surprise, this cartoon features cameos from everything imaginable. This should be very funny for fans of randomness and puns. Not a very high form a humor, but there is enough senseless violence and fart jokes to at least draw out a snort.




Rated 4 / 5 stars

Not bad, overall

It certainly was entertaining, and the references were enjoyable. You seriously need to look into getting a male voice actor though. There should be some people on the internet who you an send a script to, and they'll send their lines back. I am looking forward to the eventual sequel though.

Highly Amusing

I enjoyed this one a lot. It's unique to see a Phoenix Wright movie that isn't a sprite flash, and this one was done well. I particularly liked how the prosecutor (his name escaped me) kept getting madder and madder... that made me giggle. Good work.


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

Poorly drawn and voiced, yet hilarious.

I liked the random pop culture icon mix, especially when you replaced Maya Fey with Sonya Fitzpatrick. (I thought she was put out of business.)

Dily responds:

Thanks for the review! I still consider myself a newbie in the "Flashing" business, and I try to improve each time. With that time, the animation and voices will get better as we acquaint ourselves with the process. (This 'toon was created merely weeks after firing up the program for the first time... And days after I figured out what a friggin' "movie clip" was... *sigh* Live and learn, right?) Anyway, thanks for the review! Every bit helps!

Defense Attourney and Prime Minister Diefenbaker:

Prosecutors are supposed to doggedly pursue truth, Defense attourneys are supposed to do everything possible to get their clients off. Their job is not to secure justice, but aquitals, unlike prosecutors. This is the nature of the adversarial justice system. Cute idea tho'

Dily responds:

"The trial system in this game applies only to PHOENIX WRIGHT: ACE ATTORNEY, and does not reflect events in real-world courts. All characters, laws, and legal matters in this game are words of fiction. Any similarity to real life persons or events is purely coincidental."

A Solid Effort

It went everywhere else, but had a cliffhanger. And it was okay in some sense--not as funny as previous movies of yours, but still put a smile on my face.

The style and art is somewhat better--simple, but aesthetically improved. Sound is still on the shaky, irregular side, like when the music is too high for the voice to compensate fairly. The jokes were simplistic as noted, but some were out there and it was outlandish enough to generate a smile in the whole audience while a few would start laughing aloud.

Anyway, keep at it. Like before, there were a few technical issues but nothing too terrible. This spawned from a random stream of consciousness, so try devising a script and storyboard to guide the direction of the actual court cast. Those "Phoenix Wrong" things might actually be a sensible source of inspiration for the kind of absurdity, but remember to do your own voices.
