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

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 4: Lamiroir

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?

Gyakuten Saiban 4: Houzuki Akane

Thursday, May 15th, 2008

gyakuten saiban 4 / ace attorney apollo justice cosplay - houzuki akane / ema skye The young (and cute) detective of the 4th Gyakuten Saiban Series, Houzuki Akane, also known as Ema Skye, is a scientific investigator in her own right. Sadly, when she returned to Japan after studying abroad, she became a Detective, and assistant to Prosecutor Klavier Gavin. A lot of people identify Ema’s arrival with the sound of her munching on Karintou/ Sanckoos, a type of Japanese snack consisting of fried dough cakes.

I showed this photo to a friend of mine and she exclaimed, “she doesn’t look real!” I would have to agree on that. This girl must be very cute IRL. It makes me wonder what that Karintou tastes like.

Gyakuten Saiban 4: Garyu Kyouya

gyakuten saiban 4 / ace attorney apollo justice cosplay - garyu kyouya / klavier gavin

The young and dashing prosecutor of the 4th series (commonly referred to as “Apollo Justice”), Kyouya became a prosecutor at the age of 17. He is also the leader of a rock band known as “The Gavinners”, which is entirely made of people who are in one way or another, connected to law enforcement.

This is one hot cosplay. 8) I must wear shades… Although I wish the cosplayer would smile a little, since Kyouya is known for his signature smile.
