Thanks very much. First day in the office tomorrow, please wish me luck!!

Case 5-2 - The Monstrous Turnabout

So it turns out that Filch dressed up as Tenma Taro and accessed the Forbidden Chamber via an air vent. He disposed of the costume by dumping it out the window, where it flew away on the wind and made newspaper headlines. Filch said when he left the Forbidden Chamber, the light outside the door blinded him. Blackquill tries to pull a fast one and claim the person who opened the door is Mayor Tenma, but that isnt the case. Athena puts it together quickly and insists that LBelle take the stand, as his alibi no longer holds up.

Through a series of weird happenstances, we find that LBelle disguised himself in the room, not by hiding behind the screen as he claimed, but by posing as Mayor Tenma and wearing the wrestling mask of the Amazing Nine-Tails, knowing that Jinxie would never force him to remove it. Theres some switcheroo here about Mayor Tenma supposedly being the Amazing Nine-Tails instead of Alderman Kyubi.

Im very close to the end, I can feel it. More soon!

Case 5-2 - The Monstrous Turnabout

So, as it turns out, LBelle was posing as the Mayor, disposed of the fox wrestler mask and forgot about his private brand of haircolor that washes out with only water. The white hair we found inside the washed-up mask wasnt Alderman Kyubis at all, but LBelles!

LBelle had his eye on the gold ingot Tenma Taro, which had been stolen generations ago by Mr Filchs grandfather. LBelle, mired in debt up to his eyeballs, needed a way to make money quickly. It was always a struggle to keep the gold ingot under lock and key, so a yokai needed to be made up to deter greedy people from trying to acquire it.

I loved the animation of Apollo thinking, and it gave us a decent chance to review the facts before presenting our evidence.

Still love Simon Blackquills Silence spoken line. And the grumpy way he leans, pointing himself away from the camera.

The cutscenes are so cute and I enjoy them.

WERE GOING TO ELDOONS NOODLES TO CELEBRATE! ALL HAIL THE REIGNING CHAMPION OF SODIUM!

On to 5-3 next time! See you then!

5-2 is legitimately one of my favorite cases in the series. You think it's gonna be just some throwaway case when you see the murderer before the case ever begins, but then it turns into one of the wackiest, most complicated murder set-ups in the entire series. It has: one of the best defendants ever, a fantastic introduction to Blackquill, a ploy to get more time to investigate turn out to be completely false (first time ever), a wrestling subplot that subverts all expectations, the first revisualization (which is a great gameplay mechanic), and a great supporting cast.

There's not much else you can possibly ask for in a case!

yeah one of my favorite understated things about 5-2 is how Apollo makes a desperation theory to just barely escape at the end of day 1 and it turns out to be completely and utterly wrong

Thanks for your patience and bumping, yall are awesome. New job is filling my brain with more information and processing that, along with other logistics, has distracted me from game time. Not to worry! I am back in the saddle again.

Case 5-3 - Turnabout Academy

Characters Ive met:
  • Aristotle Means - professor at Themis Legal Academy, smile that will haunt my nightmares
  • Constance Courte - deceased professor at Themis Legal Academy, victim in this case, seemed cool from what the other characters say about their memories of her
  • Juniper Woods - seitokaichou/student council president of Themis Legal Academy, writer of the script for the school festivals mock trial, and primary suspect in this case
  • Hugh OConner - fellow student, big jerk, defense in the mock trial, has a crush on Juniper and promised to confess if he won the trial
  • Robin Newman - fellow student, sound the alarm, youre going to be UNCOMFORTABLY ENERGETIC, is definitely a boy despite a very pointy chin and 2, count them, TWO very distinct eyelashes, prosecutor in the mock trial, also has a crush on Juniper and promised to confess if he won the trial
  • Klavier Gavin - former vocalist for the Gavinners, rock star prosecutor who looks way too good in 3-D modeling, goodness, have mercy on us CAPCOM


We visit Themis Legal Academy. Did you know its Themis Legal Academy? Were still at Themis Legal Academy! Could the text on the scene banners appear any slower, or could the name Themis Legal Academy be any longer? Could we have pitied the people who play this game and called it TLA after the first couple of times we mentioned Themis Legal Academy? Of course not! Because its Themis Legal Academy! Its O c t o b e r 2 4 and its Themis Legal Academy!

Anyway, we come here so Phoenix could give a lecture to the law students at his prestigious alma mater, and so Apollo and Athena could learn some things by observation. We meet the terrifying smiler Aristotle Means and unexpectedly run into Juniper Woods. Not only is Junie the student council prez, but shes singing at the school festivals concert later tonight - she shows us a sketch of her outfit and its THE BLIND LADY MOM OUTFIT. LAMIROIR FDASFJKL;AAAA this is where I had a BSOD and Tom had to report in.

Unfortunately, only one person can attend the famed mock trial, and Phoenix gives up his seat so Apollo can learn. Phoenix and Athena take a walking tour of the campus only to find the corpse of Professor Courte on the stage to be used for a concert later! Yeesh!

Klavier Gavin shows up because hes the famous prosecutor that Themis Legal Academy [did we note that this is Themis Legal Academy? Because its Themis Legal Academy. Okay, cool] invited to also give a lecture and put on a concert for the students. I had heard tell that Mr Edgeworth is not in this game, but JUST ONCE I wanted to see his pinched little face. Klaviers 3D model, on the other hand? Wow. I have nothing more coherent to say - I think they gave him a couple of other expressions and in 3D they look great o_o The hair movement is a nice touch. Its strange because I dont typically go for the tan/blond/impossibly charismatic types? IRL I find them off-putting in a way I cant quite put my finger on. Im looking forward to Mr Blackquills reappearance at the actual trial.

Klavier and Apollo decide to follow through on the mock trial hoping for some inspiration in investigating the real case [as Prof. Courte was killed in pretty much the same way described in the script which only she and Junie knew about, thus the suspicion]. Thats where Im at, thanks for reading.

We continue tomorrow with more!

Case 5-3 - Turnabout Academy

Characters Ive met:
Myriam Scuttlebutt - a Themis student aiming to become a judge, but shes currently presiding over sleazy tabloid reporting while doing her best Snake impression in a cardboard box

We have a troubling conversation with Aristotle Means, who firmly believes that the ends justify the means. Phoenix talks to us about the dark age of law in which prosecutors drum up false charges and defense lawyers forge evidence. Our little trio of Robin, Hugh, and Junie have a mutual goal of promoting fair and upstanding law as demonstrated by their mentor, the late Prof. Courte.

We talk to Hugh and he isnt very subtle or humble about his superior level of intelligence. Apparently Hugh saw Prof. Courtes body, but figured hed lose his chance to confess to Junie if the mock trial was cancelled because of a murder. Cold-blooded, but okay, you weirdo. Robins jumping out of his skin, as usual, but stops just long enough to tell us he made the sculptures of Klavier and Phoenix, now destroyed, that were gracing the stage-now-crime-scene for the concert.

The issue now is that Junie wont ever be a judge if you dont clear her innocence through this trial, putting an end to the trios dream of running fair trials together.

See you tomorrow for trial day 1!

Case 5-3 - Turnabout Academy

It has been an adventure so far. Scuttlebutt claims on the stand that everything went down exactly like Junipers script, only no one else knew it aside from Junie and Prof. Courte.

We protest, because this sort of thing would point to Junie as the killer rather than something Junie would want to do herself. Myriam Scuttlebutt claims that her own script was going to be chosen instead, and thats when Junie flew into a rage and killed the professor. She provides us with her own suspicious photo of Juniper in her concert outfit, claiming she led Scuttlebutt to the body of Prof. Courte. We ask if Scuttlebutt photographed the body, because shes always out for a big scoop, and...she hasnt.

We can tell something is off, because in the Court Record we have the design of the concert outfit and the cape should have constellation designs on it - the one in this photo is a solid blue with no pattern. Apparently, Juniper had the cape inside-out to dry after having painted the inside [now outside] with fluorescent paint. Anyone other than Juniper would not have known this, and would have seen the cape on the mannequin and worn it as-is. Prosecutor Blackquill kindly provides us with a photo of the glowing fluorescence of the cape, for the Court Record.

We realize a photo in the Themis Herald features a photo of Juniper - and Robin Newman is in the background, his hands glowing with the fluorescent paint!!

Robin Newman takes the stand and we are really put through our paces on the Mood Matrix. Its much more difficult than usual to break through the emotional noise, as Robin admits to entering the art room and trying on the cape. The language keeps referring to it as a frilly scarf but Idk what thats about.

Heaven help us, I actually sorta predicted an Ace Attorney plot twist. Through the process of working through Robins feelings, he throws off his chest/arms brace and reveals himself to be - a girl! A recording made by Scuttlebutt in the art room on the day of the murder featured a female voice saying, Youre a goner! This was assumed to be Juniper as, of the trio, she was the only girl. Now that Robin is also known to be a girl, the suspicion is shifting.

Junie had leaked some of the scripts info to Robin to avoid getting into the love confession scenario with Hugh. We realize that Robin had expected the sweat suit Prof. Courte was wearing to be a different color.

Prosecutor Blackquill calls Hugh OConner to the stand, and after some cryptic threat, has him testify. Hes boring and full of himself, so well continue that next time.

Thanks for reading!
