And now I'm off on a reply spree.
Still, suicide over win record? Wouldn't that be, like, half a year late?
Depression doesn't always result in spontaneous reaction. He probably mulled over it for a while, and decided the Prosecutor's Office was not the place to mull over it.
Here's another contradiction to kindly try to explain away then: Why did Edgeworth win the "King of Prosecutor" trophy if all he did in GS1 was lose every single case we saw him prosecute? Isn't the KoP supposed to be for people who, like, are the best of the best of the best and didn't lose a case all year long?
This trophy was awarded to VK a whole lot because he never took a vacation in 40 years. We can't say the same for anyone else. It's easiest to assume that during his period of depression, Edgeworth still maintained a diligent record.
Explain this: Prior to Edgeworth "updating" the autopsy report, we are told that the victim died from "loss of blood due to being struck by a blunt object, sir!" You CANNOT
die instantly due to loss of blood.
He certainly was aware of it, so he asked for a second autopsy report. I'm convinced that he was trolling Phoenix all along and in case of backfire, blame Gumshoe.
I've read that in Japanese, it was actually wine. Because the Japanese word for wine literally translates back into English as "grape juice". Also, those are clearly wine bottles.
No, it's grape juice. グレープジュース, in katakana. There's no mixing it up with wine.
That means Phoenix got drunk on alcohol-free grape juice. Still, it's within the realm of possibility that some bit of alcohol made it into the brand because of a manufacturing error.
Edgeworth's "suicide" was right after the forged evidence scandal in RftA, which very clearly affected him deeply. The natural assumption in that situation would be to assume that it was over that.
Considering 1-5 outright RETCONS something about Edgeworth, I refuse to take that case into any consideration for anything. It's a dumb case, too long, contradicts itself and retcons Edgeworth's character (making the character change from JFA obsolete)
It did retcon his character, but it didn't make the change obsolete. It just smoothed out the transition between the emo version of him and the revived version. Since RftA ended on such a happy note, it makes the more sense that Phoenix would feel "betrayed" by Edgeworth's disappearance. It's difficult to read a depressed person's state of mind sometimes.
Now that we talka about months I stilll have yet to find a single reason of why the main games take place throughout whole years, while events of AAI unfold in, like, 3 days. It just... Doesn't sit right with me.Phoenix is a lazy bum. Edgeworth suffers from psychiatric disorders since a young age and tries working off his stress with more stress. Apollo has been brainwashed by the drunk Phoenix and has become just as lazy. And just Athena.
That's all we need to know.
Ever armed with trollswatters and defending Phoenix Wright and Miles Edgeworth... as their supposed daughter.
