This page is for trivia about the 2016 anime adaptation of Ace Attorney.

  • Casting Gag: Phoenix's current English VA in the games, Sam Riegel, voices Furio Tigre for the anime's dub. Similarly, Kyle Hebert (who voices Edgeworth in more recent games) voices Terry Fawles.
  • Cross-Dressing Voices:
    • Cody Hackins is played by Shizuka Ishigami and Kara Edwards in Japanese and English, respectively.
    • The grade and middle school versions of Phoenix, Edgeworth, and Larry are all played by women in the English dub. Averted in the Japanese version, where their usual actors play the part.
    • Advertisement:
    • Christopher Sabat voices an anime-exclusive female character, Goldy Gerwitz, in the English dub. Averted in Japanese, where she's played by Kimiko Saito.
  • Meaningful Release Date: Both seasons of the anime do this, the second one moreso. The first season of the anime was released in 2016, which is when all but "Rise From the Ashes" of the first game takes place (although the first game takes place in summer through winter, not spring when the anime was released). Season two, however, is slated for release in October of 2018 and will cover the third game of the series. The first case that isn't a flashback in "Trials and Tribulations" does, in fact, take place in October of 2018.
  • Playing Against Type:
  • The Other Darrin: In both the Japanese and English dubs, every single character who's had a voiced appearance in the main series of games has undergone a change of casting. Particularly justified with the English version, with Funimation handling the dubbing and using its pool of Texas-based actors rather than the L.A.-based actors from the games.note 
  • Promoted Fanboy: Dahlia's English VA Dani Chambers has done playthroughs for most of the Ace Attorney games.
  • Queer Character, Queer Actor: In the English dub, the Camp Gay chef Jean Armstrong is voiced by the openly gay J. Michael Tatum.
