Gyakuten Saiban 3: Auchi Takefumi

Tuesday, November 17th, 2009

gyakuten saiban 3 / phoenix wright: ace attorney - trials and tribulations cosplay - auchi takefumi / winston payneThe "Rookie Killer" who enjoys mocking young attorneys to no avail, Auchi Takefumi is a prosecutor who generally starts the case strong, but if quickly demoralized when defense attorneys find holes in his evidence.

In the English version, his name is Winston Payne, which is a pun of “Wince in Pain”.

I miss playing the Gyakuten Saiban series and making Payne weep, haha! I’m still waiting for Miles’ game to come out early next year! It should prove to be very interesting to play the opposing team. But anyway, really great job on this cosplay! Thanks for sharing it!

Gyakuten Saiban 2: Karuma Mei 02

Sunday, November 2nd, 2008

It’s been a while since I last posted Shibata Ina’s picture. So here’s one of her cosplaying as Karuma Mei from Gyakuten Saiban 2!

gyakten saiban 2 / phoenix wright: ace attorney - justice for all cosplay - karuma mei / franziska von karma

Karuma Mei, commonly known as Franziska Von Karma, is a young prosecutor who regards Miles Edgeworth as her little brother, despite their ages. It’s of interesting note that she actually has an older sister who’s married and has a daughter, but the game hasn’t mentioned this just yet.

How did I get this info you ask? From the Court Records, of course.

Anyway, this is a really cute shot of Shibata Ina! I love her cosplays, and I hope she does more!

Gyakuten Saiban 4: Garyu Kirihito

gyakuten saiban 4 cosplay - garyu kirihito / apollo justice: ace attorney cosplay - kristoph gavin

Kyouya’s (Klavier’s) older brother, Kirihito (Kristoph), is an old friend of Ryuichi’s (Phoenix’s). He is a perfectionist in every way, and even though he is cool and collected, he can be very intimidating in court… even to his own apprentice, Odoroki (Apollo). He is considered to be the best defense attorney after Ryuichi was disbarred for presenting falsified evidence.

This is one cool cosplay. I’m quite a big fan of Gyakuten Saiban, and even though the 4th wasn’t accepted much by hard core Phoenix Wright fans, I still appreciated it for its consistent near game play. Great job on this!

Gyakuten Saiba 4: Mayudzuki Daian

Sunday, August 31st, 2008

gyakuten saiban 4 cosplay - mayudzuki daian / apollo justice: ace attorney - daryan crescendThe usually cool and collected detective who specializes in international cases, Mayudzuki Daian, aka Daryan Crescend from Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney, is the bass guitarist of The Gavinners and a close friend of Garyu Kyouya’s. He can be pretty sensitive about certain things like his guitar playing; criticizing on which can make him lose his cool and turn into a jerk.

What can I say? That hair-style is pretty impressive. I doubt that’s actual hair on his head, but it’s pretty accurate to the character. I love his jacket too.

Gyakuten Saiban 2: Hanaka Nodoko

Wednesday, August 13th, 2008

I literally did a double take when I found this cosplay:

gyakuten saiban 2 / phoenix wright: ace attorney - justice for all - hanaka nodoko / ini mineyPeople who’ve played Gyakuten Saiban 2, aka Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Justice for All, will remember how annoying this character was. She seemed like an air head who spent most of her time sleeping and not knowing much about what was going on.

Or so it may seem.

Of course, as usual, I won’t spoil the game play for anyone. It really is a great game, and you guys should pick it up some time.

Nice job on this cosplay! She was apparently found in this year’s Sakura Con. I attended that convention way back in 2004, I should go again some time. You can find the original here.

Gyakuten Saiban 2: Karuma Mei

Friday, July 11th, 2008

gyakuten saiban 2 cosplay / phoenix wright: ace attorney 2 justice for all cosplay - karuma mei / franziska von karma Last year, on June 16th, there was a “Toys, Hobbies, and Collectibles Convention” in SM Megamall’s Megatrade Hall. An event I missed thanks to work, but I had no idea I missed such a great looking cosplay..!

Addy is cosplaying Karuma Mei, more commonly known as Franziska Von Karma from the game “Gyakuten Saiban 2″ (Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney 2 - Justice For All). Mei is the undefeated Prosecutor from Germany who came to Japan in order to defeat Naruhodo Ryuichi and avenge her adoptive brother, Mitsurugi Reiji. Of interesting note, is that in the Japanese version, Mei went to America to study law, not Germany.

Did I mention she became a prosecutor when she was only 13?

Lovely cosplay; and this was originally found in Raincontreras’s Flickr account. I wonder what Mei is saying here though? Probably something like “Foolish fools who foolishly dreams a foolish fool’s dream”?

Gyakuten Saiban 4: Lamiroir

Tuesday, June 24th, 2008

gyakuten saiban 4 / ace attorney apollo justice - lamiroir / thalassa gramarye / arumajiki yumiWarning: This review has a lot of spoilers for Gyakuten Saiban 4 (Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney). You have been warned!

A famous singer from Borginia, Lamiroir has a little secret. She has no idea who she really is, and she’s pretending to be “normal” when she’s really… blind. Her assistant and pianist, Machi Tobaye stays close to her and pretends to be the one who is blind in order to avert suspicions from himself. It is later reveled in the series that Lamiroir is actually Arumajiki Yumi (Thalassa Gramarye in the English version), the only daughter of Arumajiki Tensai (Magnifi Gramarye) and the mother of Odoroki Housuke (Apollo Justice) and Naruhodo Minuki (Trucy Wright).

Beautiful eyes… I wonder what she looks like without the mask?
