What is/are your favourite Ace Attorney game(s) from the series?
Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney. It introduced me to the series, it has Phoenix, Maya, Gumshoe and Edgeworth in their right places, and everything just felt refreshing and brilliant. I love all the other games that came after, but I owe this specific title for getting me into AA in the first place. That being said, Trials and Tribulations comes in a close second.

Who are your favourite characters?
Mia! She's just the best mentor character that you could ever have. Other favourites would be Maya Fey, Miles Edgeworth, Dick Gumshoe and Godot. Godot because of Bridge to the Turnabout, Gumshoe because of how childish he is, Edgeworth because of his character development, and Maya because she practically makes the investigation parts of the games as fun as they are. Hobo Phoenix was also awesome, because he acted as Mia's replacement in Apollo Justice somewhat. I have to wonder how that aspect of him will change his behavior in AA5. He might revert back to his old self, or be a bit more collected and mature. I'd like to see the latter happen, for continuity's sake (so that they absolutely can't pretend Apollo Justice never happened), but I'll be fine either way.

Who are your least favourite characters?
Redd White. Apart from that obvious choice, I can't think of anyone in particular right off the bat. I suppose I disliked Matt Engarde a lot. Oh, and Wendy Oldbag might be hilarious for some, but I find her annoying. I keep clicking on the next button whenever I accidentally make her repeat what she already said, and it's a pain to get through her rants.

And since we're on the topic, I'll answer that as well.

What is your favourite character theme?
I have to lie if I don't say Godot's theme isn't up there on my list. However, Mia's theme (I'm calling Turnabout Sisters' Ballad Mia's theme because it reminds me of her) makes me feel all nostalgic, so I'm going with that.

Sorry about the brief delay, but welcome to the club~! Nice to have ya. <3

I've got another topic question:

What are some life lessons you've learned from the series?

Because truth be told, there are a lot of good lessons you can learn from playing these games~ Like, I learned that there are multiple ways you can protect someone - as long as you don't give up.

I've learnt to take logic and throw it out the window. You can thank Mia for that one. :3

But in all honestly, I can't really recall what life lessons, or just normal lessons I've taken from the games. I mean, maybe you can adapt something like "don't be a detective unless you want to live on noodles" or something, but I can't really think of much. but right now I'm thinking of something to do with Edgeworth needing to lighten up a lot bit, maybe just stand in his office and yell "WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOP" like Gumshoe does or something. Not really a life lesson, but it will do. xD

But wow has no one posted in this club. Has everyone lost the inner attorney within them or something? D:

Here's a little something I've thought of with playing some of the cases camy meele april may and maybe something viable to talk about.
Do you think the series is oversexualised in any way?

Huh...
Well, I guess there's oversexualization in the games with certain characters: like April May is an obvious example from her woton winking and all that. Maybe Dahlia Hawthrone as well - because she used her "cute, innocent femininity" to hide her identity. Also the cough up queen, Angel, always seemed to have men "under her spell". :x

I feel like it's hard for a series like this to truly be defined as "oversexualized" at any point. I know I can pick out a few characters who fit the bill but the nature of the game just has them coming across as such a parody that I'm not so sure it counts in that way. I mean, I guess it does regardless of the genre of game but the sexualization in this series feels very different from other series that would feature similar characters in different settings, you know?

I guess now that I think about it, it's not oversexualized at all.
ahem
Spoiler:

I have no idea why I even thought of that. x_x But I will think of an appropriate question!

-long damon gant pause-

What's your favourite flashback?
I honestly couldn't say who's past my favourite is. Trying to word it right, but your favourite moment in the past, like Maya breaking the urn and her fixing it with Mia or pearls roasting the sign with gravy
I couldn't say what my favourite past event would be. I enjoyed playing through Trucy's past in Apollo Justice, that was fun. Just seeing her innocence in the smallest moment.
"Daddy? Okay Daddy!"

My favourite flashback... probably the DL6 incident; it's pretty sad for Edgeworth. =( Plus, it sort of helped set up the story for the Fey family feud arc.

BTW, 45 days until Professor Layton vs Ace Attorney comes out in Japan! Not sure if I want to ship it though, haha~

Mind if I ask a side question:

If you can pick one thing from Ace Attorney that excited you the most, what would it be?

Well fior me generally, it's whenever there's a cross-examination, and when that traditional "OBJECTION!" occurs, it's followed up by the cornered music. :3

Whenever one of the "Pursuit" themes played. Not only was it one of the things that I looked forward to most, but whenever it played it would literally send chills down my spine. The idea of the "Pursuit" themes was great, and it was a well executed way of driving the seriousness and ferocity of the situation.

Do you think the series is oversexualised in any way?
I thought about that, and I really don't think so. Sure, in the beginning there were two (three if you count Rise from the Ashes) characters that were well endowed (Mia, Angel, and April), but two of the three had justified reasons for their endowment, and the other one didn't detriment the character design. There are some other characters that could be considered oversexualized, but the reasons for their appearances are usually either justified or don't go "over the top".
