Volume 2 still feels very like playing the game. There are two cases here: the end of the Spiderman case from the previous volume, and a complete case involving costumed characters. Both feature Edgeworth as prosecutor, which was pretty much what I'd been waiting for. I love that it feels so true to the characters (for the most part), and that the art is pretty faithful.
Turnabout Gallows (Part Two): The exciting conclusion to the baffling case of the spider man, but, erm.....not that Spider-Man. First things first, I have to admire the attempt here to develop an interesting locked(ish) room case, with a unique solution that I wouldn't dream of spoiling. That said....I don't think there's a single thing about said solution that doesn't require stretching one's suspension of belief to the breaking point, even by the standards of the Phoenix Wright series, with it ...more
The manga is pretty accurate in terms of capturing the over-the-top wackiness of the game series. Chances are you won't see the 'answer' coming - because it's just so completely out there. This may put some people off (especially those not familiar with the game), but those who have played at least some of the cases will appreciate how accurate the manga is.

It also has to be said that the characters from the game are nailed brilliantly in this, each acting as you would expect.

Not many faults, re
Pretty good, but I totally figured out one of the cases really easily. First volume was better.

To get back on that "its like the games but with less buttons" joke - at one point the story even pulls the "oops.. presented the wrong evidence" joke (what, your touchscreen never accidentally presented wrong bit in the game itself?)

This book has the second part of the spiders/arson story from the 1st volume, plus a new case with theme park mascots.
Also there's a neat lil translations notes page explaining why English-version characters were named what they were named. Someone really had to thi
Wrightworth shipping material.
It doesn't make you suffer like the games.
Another cute foray into the world of Phoenix Wright. The art isn't exactly the same as the game but it keeps the spirit of the game which is more important I think. The characters are funny and alive, I would definitely recommend this book.
I great book for any Phoenix Wright fan but make sure to buy the 1st book first because the first case carries on from the first 1 book. There is also a few contradiction in the book.
I registered a book at!
This series really has the same feel as the games, the same mix of fun and mystery, the quirky characters and the oddball scenarios.
