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!

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 2: Hanaka Nodoko

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

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”?
