The Minimalistic Tales: Ace Attorney

by Nirvana star
A comic where I retell stories of video games using EXTREMELY simple sprites.

I'm more focused on the story than the quality of the pages, and while I don't aim to make the pages downright ugly, I will cut corners here and there.


This specific comic is about The Ace Attorney series. I also have Minimalistic tales about
- The legend of Zelda
- The Super Mario series
- And the Pokémon Anime
On seperate comics.

Is that angry face copy pasted?
@Nirvana star: maybe he coulda also mentioned that he was violently sparkly
@Nirvana star: Maybe purple hair is just unquestioningly common among most people in this universe and it's just that they're all off-screen
You'd think he'd remember to mention that the person in question had purple hair.

But no, just 'a lady killer'.

Good job, bellboy.
I think the basic idea is that once Sahwit recovers, he confesses. To get the charge reduced from 'murder' to 'manslaughter' or something, since his intention was burglary rather than killing.
@Nirvana star: There we go. I assume that's the part you were talking about.
@Shadow_Da_Hedgie:
I'm sorry. Minor as it is, I'm counting that as a spoiler. Please take out the second line of that comment.
@Guest: Well, yes, but it's at least someone guilty going to death. Sometimes you've proven your client is innocent beyond a reasonable doubt, but not according to the law. So your client is sentenced to death anyway.
@Hero of Comedy: Hence why people who aren't in Japan tend to go with it being set in America, since that's where the localized versions say it is. If you like, you can say that 'Gyakuten Saiban' is set in Japan, but 'Ace Attorney' is set in America.

This contradiction gave me an issue when I first played the game. Because it's set in America, although I had absolutely no idea of that at the time, but I live in Britain. And the time difference between Britain and France is only one hour, so even if I had thought of time differences, I would have been stuck.

Luckily, it was easy enough to get it right through the brute force way of showing each piece of evidence, since there wasn't much evidence to go through.
I just realized something.

Even if you were to entertain the thought that Sahwit didn't do it... that outburst about how Larry did it would bring up questions about Sahwit having a grudge against Larry for some reason. So you could probably get the testimony thrown out on the basis that the witness' bias is affecting his testimony.

Then all you need to do is to prove that Larry didn't do it, which would be easy, considering Payne has no concrete evidence that Larry DID do it, other than that the victim was seeing other women, which, as Phoenix pointed out earlier, Larry had no idea of, and that Larry had visited the apartment earlier. But Payne wouldn't be able to prove, beyond reasonable doubt, that Larry did it, considering the statue doesn't have any fingerprints and that no-one who can be trusted to give an unbiased testimony saw him.
@ForestFire: Oh, it gets worse than that. I doubt it exactly counts as a spoiler, since it's not important to the story... but at one point, Gumshoe calls Phoenix "Hairy Butz", I'm pretty sure.
@ZSnazzy: It's a good thing they got their crap together and stopped showing the murderer in the intro of the first case.

Although the third one was a huge fakeout.
Personally if they didnt show Re- I mean mystery man- at the start, I woulda suspected the bellboy.
Funny how this unnamed bellboy has more personality than quite a large number of the rest of the game's cast.

Like, for instance, last case's prosecutor and killer.
@Nirvana star: ...shush I'm smart and totally didn't misread it. >.>
@Shadow_Da_Hedgie:
Um, that's exactly what Phoenix says on the logical deduction panel.
Also logical deduction: If either of them is gonna help, it'll be the picture of the guy, since it was stated that Miss May checked in with a guy rather than a girl.
It's always bugged me that they show the player who the killer is in the beginning, but I guess it does help with the case a bit since you know he's guilty.
@Nirvana star: It always bothers me when Phoenix does this law braking actions and then in a later game (S P O I L E R S) from a minimal thing in comparison.
