I actually finally began my series replay a bit ago (thus is like my 5th time or so but going to add AAI2 and Layton vs Wright to this for the first time!)

I can claim I now really think 1-3 is a real drag and 1-2 is actually pretty enjoyable. Like the contradictions and stuff are boring but the investigations are interesting necause the story is well presented in that case. 1-4 still one of my favs and 1-5 is still great.

2-1 has some really humorous moments that get overlooked like when phoenix forgets Maya (And Payne) at the end but when you present his biz card I don't think o ever picked the joke answer of "Look at the name" instead of the phone #. And Nick is like "this name is very important. It told me who I am!"

Judge: didn't you know that?

Nick (in objection pose): NOPE

2-2 is more convoluted than I remember and leaves loose ends. Like its never made clear if Gray actually drugged Mimi or not right? And did he just want her dead for the reputation of the hospital cuz that seems kind of weak? Why didn't he just fire her? What purpose does her dead serve him? The whole contradiction with the licence made no sense too. So did Inireally not have a licence? Then why did hotti say she did? Mimi took ini's licence from the burning car body? How did Maya not get shot with the bullet hole in the box? Etc etc. Too many weird questions left unanswered here....

I'm on 2-3 now god rest my soul.

it looks like the top line count so far from a single case character is Bikini? I would not have guessed that. would have guessed Atmey

edit: well, Ema's 1-5 appearance so far trumps everyone but that won't last


Well, Bikini's part of a massive case

the more "impressive" thing is the fact that Moe is 2nd

It's never outright stated, but it's pretty clearly implied he didn't.

She did, or at least she had a permit. Mimi didn't take the license. Mimi had a picture of Ini with her.

Maya wasn't in the box at the time.

Bikini, Moe, and Luke all have the trait of characters who talk a lot (both during trial and investigation), though I too was slightly more surprised at seeing Bikini up there than the other two. Her case is longer though, which obviously helps.

what makes the ballistic twist in E2-1 so clever is that you don't expect it at this time, from this person

it's the type of move you expect from a 2nd or 3rd case, but in case 1, the villain is usually just straight-up lying (it's an out-of-court maneuver, so in a case with no investigation, I guess it's nearly impossible to pull off anyway - the nearest analogue might be acro hiding the bust in his chair)

and that's combined with knightley having all the negative traits we've already seen - jealous, physically inferior, and a case 1 villain - we just assume he's a pushover dolt. but he's not.
yet all sailors of all sorts are more or less capricious and unreliable - they live in the varying outer weather, and they inhale its fickleness

I don't think it's necessarily that Bikini never stops talking. It's just that she's a big part of nearly every segment of a massive case, which is rare. Most one-off characters are either trial only/investigation only, or first half only/second half only, but Bikini's there throughout the whole thing.

It's kind of weird that we give Knightley this much credit solely because he's the intro villain and he actually did one clever thing...that was quickly unraveled and unequivocally painted him as the killer once it was unraveled. I think Knightley's overrated and what he did isn't as "brilliant" as people seem to give him credit for. I thought Portsman's move in E1-1 (Recognizing that there was a second visitor before Edgeworth did and using it to craft an alibi) was more clever and gave him more leeway than what Knightley did here. Don't get me wrong. It's a cool twist that catches you off guard because you're not ready for it in an intro case (you expect the ballistic markings to match Knightley's gun and that's how the case ends; they also did the super smart move of playing Presto on the testimony before this, so you're doubly expecting it), but come on, it's super easy to figure out what he did. The whole point of Knightley is that he's not nearly as clever as he thinks he is, and Edgeworth proves that.

It's going to be amazing how badly Dhurke destroys every other single-case character

Yeah, he probably will. Being Apollo's partner for most of investigation day 1 will give him a pretty massive line count.

Does Dhurke actually count as single-case? He has a line in 6-1...
All your old meme are belong to me.

Well, he's technically not a single-case character just due to the fact that he has a line at the very end of 6-1 and you see him in person at the very end of 6-3 (although I don't think he speaks, but maybe he does), but they're pretty brief. I know it's not quite the same thing, but is Sal Manella a single-case character or not considering he has a brief cameo in E1-2?

what's Adrian's line count in 2-4? she feels way more present than Bikini and is in a similarly sized case but might have less lines.
add the c and back away
