The Ace Attorney anime might have some pacing issues, but overall it’s an enjoyable show, especially if you’re already a fan of the series.


You can watch the Ace Attorney anime with subtitles (including subtitles that use the localized names) through Crunchyroll, but you’ll have another option in the future.

Crunchyroll announced a partnership with Funimation, which brings benefits like an expanded catalog and new home video releases.

Funimation will now distribute Crunchyroll’s titles through home video and a variety of EST outlets, with both dubbed and subtitled versions together. Currently planned titles include Ace Attorney, Alderamin on the Sky, Bungo Stray Dogs, JOKER GAME, Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress and ReLIFE, with more to be announced in the future.”

That’s right, the Ace Attorney anime is set for a home video release with not only subtitles, but also an English dub.

Now, the official page only says home video and EST (electronic sell-through), which could mean only digital formats, but the forum announcement said these titles are planned for “Blu-ray, DVD, and Download-to-Own.”

Capcom won’t give us physical Ace Attorney games, but maybe we’ll have a physical copy of the anime.

Whether physical or digital, this is exciting news for Crunchyroll and the Ace Attorney anime. Are you going to get a copy when it becomes available?

  1. Very good job getting the whole week as Ace Attorney related.

    So, is it possible that the whole dub thing would be physical-only? Do we know?

    • Oh, I didn’t even realize I had, haha!

      Since one announcement says home video and electronic sell-through, and the other says DVD, Blu-ray, and Download-to-Own, I don’t think physical-only is likely at all.
