Ace Attorney is based on Capcom’s video game franchise of the same name. Ayumu Watanabe (If Her Flag Breaks, Space Brothers) directed the series at A-1 Pictures. Keiko Ōta (Hyakko!) provided character designs on the project, while Atsuhiro Tomioka (Inazuma Eleven, Pokémon XY) took charge of series composition.
Kaoru Wada (Princess Tutu, Ninja Scroll) is composed the soundtrack.
Funimation describes the show as:
As a brand-new defense lawyer, Phoenix Wright is learning what it means to be a true defender of justice. But when his mentor is murdered, things go downhill fast! With all evidence pointing to the victim’s sister Maya, it’s up to Phoenix to use all his wit and powerful shouting to prove her innocence. Which is easier said than done when up against Miles Edgeworth, the genius prosecutor.
