Ace Attorney 6 commentary, light spoilers I guess? 

I'm only on case 2 and while on the surface I really enjoy the writing so far there's something I find extremely off about the vibe of this game, which is the portrayal of Kura'in

In the original trilogy, the Kura'in village and the temple had more of an aesthetic that looked like Chinese Buddhism, but here the Kingdom of Kura'in looks way more like a caricature of Indian Buddhism. It's clearly based on India to some degree but... I kinda have a problem with most of the characters from there having really light-tan skin at best, or being pasty white at worst. And also their religious belief which is fictious, but clearly inspired from the real world, being depicted as extreme and ridiculous.

Idk, maybe I'm off the mark (also the plot might evolve as there's some foreshadowing revolutionary stuff happening, but I'm also worried about the treatment of that subject) but it seems a bit wrong to me.

Actually now to think of it this case is absolute shit with evidence — stuff that should be treated as it (like the coffin, or Mr. Hat with his ripped cape) don't get added to the court record, but stuff that, obviously comes into play later, but seem completely random, like when Apollo goes "oh, an empty bucket. Looks important", does get added. It's a bit bullshit imo

Ace Attorney 6 commentary, 6-2 spoilers 

Also I feel it's pretty similar to 1-2

Assistant gets accused of murder
Betty is similar to April May (Bonny is super cute though)
Retinz is similar to Redd White

Ace Attorney 6 commentary, 6-2 spoilers 

At least that was one of the best breakdowns in the series

Ace Attorney 6 commentary, 6-2 spoilers 

Do they explain Trucy's note about knowing the prank? Did she just lie about not knowing about it?

Ace Attorney 6 commentary, 6-3 spoilers 

Ah, it seems the Kingdom of Khura'in and the Kurain Village/Fey clan ARE related, but still culturally distinct. It seems the Khura'inism religion and the Kurain channeling technique are not strictly the same thing

Ace Attorney 6 commentary, 6-3 spoilers 

Ah, I expected Maya to be more changed as a character and more integrated in Khura'inese society

Ace Attorney 6 commentary, 6-3 spoilers 

Is. Is she going to be accused of Doing A Crime again. The last case was Trucy already

Ace Attorney 6 commentary, 6-4 spoilers 

Hell yeah I LOVE Simon Blackquill as a defense assistant. He doesn't spell anything out for Athena but he counterbalances Nahyuta's bullshit pretty well

Follow

Ace Attorney 6 commentary, 6-4 spoilers 

I'm sure Blackquill would play shogi

Ace Attorney 6 commentary, 6-4 spoilers 

The characters in this case are all great so far

Ace Attorney 6 commentary, 6-4 spoilers 

Oh no it took some kind of turn, huh

Ace Attorney 6 commentary, 6-4 spoilers 

So far they do call it a disorder but... They acknowledge Uendo's multiple personalities and are not agressive about this. That's interesting

Ace Attorney 6 commentary, 6-4 spoilers 

They do seem to be the culprit given the opening cutscenes though...

Ace Attorney 6 commentary, 6-4 spoilers 

I like that they specifically asked every personality to introduce themselves and that there's a different name tag on the dialogue box for every single one of them

Ace Attorney 6 commentary, 6-3 and 6-4 spoilers, further CW inside read before displaying images 

Further CW: sui mention

Kind of a mood whiplash between the huge reveal of these two cases lol

Ace Attorney 6 commentary, 6-4 spoilers 

Okay so this was a small filler case, but it's probably one of my favorites in the entire series

- It's short and sweet, a really nice breather from the game's heavy overarching story
- Positive representation of plurality/DID. From what I've found, plural people/people with DID liked it
- Overall really well-written: the murder mystery is not very complex which allows it to be pretty tight and less bullshit-y than the rest of the game so far, but also character interactions are gread. I've already mentioned Uendo in the previous point, but having Blackquill as a defense counsel is a delight, and so are his interactions and rivalry with Prosecutor Sahdmahdi
- I loved the rather Japanese setting of this case between rakugo theatre and noodle-making

Ace Attorney 6 commentary, AA4 spoilers, AA6-5 spoilers 

Urgh Dhurke implying a romantic connection between Apollo and Trucy... :S I wonder if there was a purpose of not having them know in Apollo Justice Ace Attorney that they're siblings, let alone that Lamiroir is their mother. Will it come into play here?

Ace Attorney 6 commentary, 6-5 spoilers 

Apollo Justice, currently helping his adoptive father to find something that will allow him to overthrow an entire country's regime: "Politics aren't really my thing"

Ace Attorney 6 commentary, 6-5 spoilers 

I wonder why Apollo is so lukewarm towards Dhurke

Ace Attorney 6 commentary, 6-5 spoilers 

I find it pretty immoral and OOC that Phoenix Wright obscured the true nature of the case when he found with his investigation that Buff was murdered but kept it in his cards for the civil trial instead of reporting it to the authorities. I wonder if he’s doing all of this under some kind of pressure or if he’s on a AA4-like gambit

Ace Attorney 6 commentary, 6-5 spoilers 

Bar some twist before the end that would make him a shithead so far I love Dhurke's character so much

Ace Attorney 6 commentary, 6-5 spoilers 

Omg Edgeworth and Wright are so, so very gay for each other

Ace Attorney 6 commentary, 6-5 spoilers 

Prediction reacting to the "I don't have much longer to live" thing Dhurke just dropped: he's been dead for all of this time and that's why he didn't contact with Apollo before that. He's currently being channeled by Queen Amara.

Ace Attorney 6 commentary, 6-5 spoilers 

OH YEAH ALSO I FORGOT TO MENTION HOW FUCKING PUMPED I'M WITH THE REVOLUTION SHIT THAT'S HAPPENING THIS GAME'S STORY IS SO GOOD

Ace Attorney 6 commentary, 6-5 spoilers 

100% sure something like Inga used a Magatama of Parting on Dhurke, Amara or whoever was channeling him killed Inga, and then channeled Dhurke back again

Ace Attorney 6 commentary, 6-5 spoilers 

Or it's Nayna. Because after all Amara's hair color is different than Dhurke. But does that mean that Dhurke has been killed with Inga? Is he in the sarcophagus?

Ace Attorney 6 commentary, 6-5 spoilers 

OH SHIT SHE'S SO COOL

Ace Attorney 6 commentary, 6-5 spoilers 

Also wow! Prosecution co-counsel, first time in the series I'm pretty sure
