A surprisingly very good cross-over
Being a huge fan of both series (Ace Attorney and My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic), I was very curious to see what this cross-over would offer. And, gosh, was it a pleasant surprise ! Both univers meld together perfectly. The characterisation is very true to the original series, with brilliant Shout Out and accurate reactions from all characters involved. The authors pay close attention to details, and it shows. Though, there is some Flanderization here and there (Applejack, I'm looking at you), but it doesn't hurt the story in the slightest.

Said story is actually quite reminiscent of Ace Attorney cases (except, you know, with ponies), and even if you don't particurarly dig My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic, chances are you'll get hooked by the quality of the writing, which is very spot on. Every Ace Attorney fan will try to resolve the mystery at hand, and if you're not familiar with My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic, you'll definitly empathize with poor Phoenix as he discovers the strange rules of this universe.

Voices actors are doing a great job too, though the quality of some voices can vary (like Trixie's in Part 2, though the problem isn't the voice in itself but the sound recording, affecting greatly the quality).

Part 1, 2 and 3 (Phoenix) are incredibly enjoyable, though Part 3 Phoenix tends to drag a little. I burst out in laughter very often, and I can't wait for Part 3 (Twilight) and Part 4 to be released.
Admittedly, Part 3 does kind of drag on occasion. I think that may have something to do with the very length of that investigation, which might feel longer than most found in the games themselves. But it does carry some very important moments, too. It just... kinda feels cumbersome, having so much information in one investigation.
