I have to admit, the bit with the symmetrical names blew my mind. It was so obvious and I never really noticed... Then again, it started to trail off when Trucy's came along without kanji. Kay's was close but not quite. And then it returned briefly with Athena's, but trailed off again with Susato. Such trouble for these golden nuggets.

And again, an interview from 15th Anniversary Gyakuten Saiban Series Encyclopedia 2001-2016: this one is a special, as it features composers Horiyama and Iwadare, who as far as I know have not done many interviews on Ace Attorney music, if even at all. They talk about what they think is typically Ace Attorney music, how they work on their music and about recording.

And three interviews is more than enough for now, so don't expect (m)any more updates this month ^_~

Yes! Composer interviews, just the thing to start my day. Thanks, Ash.

Wow, they were quite defiant about using Indian instruments, huh? I can see why, since they have such a strong sense of India and can overtake the generally softer sounds of Chinese music. But I kinda wish they did bring in more ethnic instruments from there, just to make that side of the soundtrack sound more diverse. Overall, many of those pieces sound more Chinese than Tibetan.

I added a new page to Gyakuten Saiban Library, listing the main character/art designers of the games. Like with the writer and producer page, it should provide a brief summary about the artist themselves, the games they worked on, and in some specific examples, what characters they designed.

I aim to have *at least* one update a month for Gyakuten Saiban Library, so today I posted an interview on a pretty niche topic: sound effects! This interview featuring sound director Horiyama and sound designer Amagishi (and interviewer Sandou, who has also worked on the series) is about creating new versions of the sound effects for AA5 and more! I thought it'd be an interesting piece to accompany the interview with Horiyama and Iwadare posted earlier on music.

'Right! Right! Wright!' Really gets old after a while.

I'm a bit sad seeing all these people trying to hype up the laughably bad anime cutscenes. I did like how Juniper's cute cough was that of a staff member though, ala the original games.

Also, Yamazaki got it wrong. The Logic theme never plays during when the protagonist explains their deductions. That's the Objection theme. The Logic theme plays when the detective/prosecutor explains the case to the court, and during segments where you have to make a certain choice or point out something strange in an image or a diagram. No wonder I remember the Logic theme playing a lot in DD and SoJ. Maybe that's why the Basics of the Case music was made for SoJ. It's way better than the logic theme of that game funnily enough.

And another piece on sound effects and other sound-related topics, this time on Ace Attorney 6. It's a lot shorter, but there are two funny photographs from the SE recording at Capcom's Foley Stage. And I like it we see some names dropped you usually don't hear, as that's the idea behind Gyakuten Saiban Library: show how the games, as a whole, are made, and that includes more than the usual suspects.

Courtroom battle genre? :p

Yessssss, I love Strange People. Best theme ever.

I like how they emulated how it truly felt (the sound effects) in a great sound stage just to smack a gavel and throw some beads

Yes, this series has always been known in Japan as the "court battle genre". It's not an ordinary visual novel, nor is it just any mystery point-and-click adventure. It is a lawyer debate game.

After all this time, I'm still amazed at the work put into making Potdino's (Andistan'dhin) testimony. By far one of the most memorable testimonies in the series.

I sometimes do more recent stuff too, so here's a translation of the (write-up of the talkshow corner the DGS2 fan event last week, wherein producer Eshiro explains what needs to happen if we want to see a DGS3 and 4.

"Let him show! Let him show!" is what I want to say, but I know Eshiro's just doing his job. It's too bad they don't allow spoilers from the case 2 demo out of the event. The suspense is killing.

I've been ignoring in-depth pre-release information for these games for quite a while now actually, as it really interferes with my initial enjoyment. It's not a total info black-out, but I don't watch the demos, nor do I read the case summaries and stuff anymore...

Hey, it's been almost a year since I opened the site!

Today's update is a translation of an interview between Takumi and the mystery writer Alice Arisugawa (male by the way) on what they liked about each other's works, what works Takumi drew inspiration from, how to write protagonists in detective stories and more.

Interviewer: Thank you both very much. Could you please both sign these boards. They’ll be given away as presents to the readers.

Takumi: I want one too! (laugh).

Interviewer: Objection! You too will have to sign up separately for that.

Takumi: What! (all laugh).

I'm not sure why I find this so heartbreaking. ^^

I love reading these interviews. It really gives you a sense of the scope. Incidentally, is there any Kindaichi Case File that doesn't revolve around a revenge as motive? I get the impression it's basically just that, despite the intricately designed murders.

Some of the short stories feature different motives, like the one about the theft of a Sherlock Holmes collection from the Mystery Club's booth at the Fudo High school festival.

Oh, I've been wanting to read this kind of stuff for a while. Time to put my prejudices about Iwadare to the test :simon:
Well, there's some interesting tidbits. I like the fact that they output the music on the 3DS speakers as they were making it to test what sounded best for the system, and man, I have newfound respect for Horiyama for his technical/audio-code skills. It's really cool they made DD and SoJ switch seamlessly between speaker-friendly and headphones-friendly upon plugging in a pair of earphones.

As for composition, I like each of their takes on why the themes came to be. When Horiyama says it's pretty "80s" I totally get it. I was listening to some lesser known David-Bowie likes on Spotify recently and Toto and there are just times when you can tell that this was the type of music the Ace Attorney composers were inspired by as musicians. I feel like Horiyama's styles mimic more closely the sort of synthy 80s pop like Michael Jackson, David Bowie and similars while Iwadare sticks more closely to the music theory and by-the-book sort of genre-specifics and he's good at it too. I really have a soft-spot for Horiyama's and Sugimori's kind of uniquely melodic themes though.

Iwadare mentioning that he couldn't grasp the melodies in the original game makes perfect sense to me. It was too unconventional for him. I really wonder what musical background Sugimori has. Probably some remix, DJ kind of stuff because his music is very untraditional but that Courtroom 2001 theme, man. You can tell Iwadare has tried several times to beat it but in my opinion he just can't ever seem to do it. The one in DD also has the "Pahpah! Pahpah!" he's talking about but it doesn't work the same way because he started fucking with the time signatures and the key in the middle of the song to be edgy lol.

Added translations of Inside's report on Eshiro and Takumi's Special Court Seminar on the Ace Attorney series (Part 1 and Part 2). The first one was held two weeks ago at the Akihabara location of Human Academy, where the two talked about topics like how the first game and DGS were conceived, how development on Dai Gyakuten Saiban 2 is going, and interestingly enough, even a bit on the overseas localized releases of the series.

This is by the way the first time I did a translation of a report by a third party, instead of direct interviews/essays/blog posts, but I made an exception as the Special Court Seminar is a pretty rare event on its own, and it's also quite rare to see them discussing the localized version in an event aimed at the Japanese public.

It's been exactly one year since Gyakuten Saiban Library was opened. Over a hundred unique articles have been posted, some of them short blog posts or columns, some of them interviews of well over ten pages long. A lot of them are with the director/producers of the games, but there are also some rare interviews/columns by other development staff members like composers, UI graphic artists and programmers. I hope people have been enjoying them.

The latest updates were a series of columns by Takumi on how he got his job at Capcom, and the hobbies that influenced his games (Part 1, Part 2, Part 3 and Part 4).

Congrats on one year! Your site has been a wonderful source of information that I regularly depend on, so thanks!

Say, out of curiosity, has he ever mentioned when he first met Missile? The little doggie is credited with some important roles sometimes.

He might've mentioned in his interview in Pomeranian Style 3, but I have not read that one (nor am I planning to purchase that issue...). The only thing I know for sure it was after Takumi created the first game, as his own dog was named after the Missile from the game.

Well, Missile in GT did say he was almost 2, but I don't know if that reflects Missile's actual age. Speaking of which, where did Takumi get the name "Missile" from for GS1's Missile? I had thought it was based on his dog, but Missile the Pom isn't nearly that old yet. Could he have had another dog as inspiration?

I always figured the name Missile was just a very literal joke: Gumshoe tells you he has secret weapons for you and one of them is called Missile.

Takumi has stated on Twitter (back when he actually responded!) that the Pom was named after the Missile in the game: if he had another dog named Missile, I'd figure he'd have said his Pom was named after that dog.

Today's update: A 2015 interview with Takumi and the Sherlockian/author Kitahara where they talk about Sherlock Holmes. A lot. And hey, perhaps that suggestion by Kitahara near the end might've found its way in DGS! Probably last update for this month by the way unless there's a surprise DGS2 interview or something like that.

Posted a long interview from Famitsu on DGS2 earlier this week by the way. The second part of the interview will be published in next week's issue (release week of DGS2), and I assume I'll do that one too eventually.

I couldn't find the second part of the Famitsu DGS2 interview, so no updates on that. Would appreciate it if somebody could point me to them.

The one small update of this month is an interview with Takumi from last week, where he talks about developing DGS2, how he got in the industry in the first place and some thoughts on recent industry trends.

Small update: Not a proper interview, but a Sankei News article on the role of Ace Attorney within the adventure game genre, with a few quotes from Eshiro and Takumi.

I'm having trouble finding in-depth DGS2 interviews by the way, so I'd appreciate it if someone could help me out. Especially the second part of the Famitsu interview is one I'd love to do (as I already have the first part), but can't locate.
