Your honor, something is amiss here!

As you are probably aware, library materials are labeled with barcodes as well as a number to determine their location on the shelf, as per the Dewey Decimal System. The books just to the left of the manga are labeled, as are the DVDs just in view on the lower shelf. Look even further behind these shelves and you’ll see that even those books are labeled! 

Ladies and gentlemen of the courtroom, I invite you to take a closer look at the volumes that are, allegedly, part of this law library! Something is missing from the spines, isn’t there?


Where are the bar codes?!

This is a blatant contradiction! The OP is lying— these volumes cannot, therefore, be a part of this library at all! I propose that they simply brought these materials in for the sake of the joke!! 

Only focusing on one aspect and not the whole of the issue, are we, Mr. Wright? Typical.

Your honor, if you bring your attention to the books just left of the manga, you’ll notice there’s a book (the second to the left) that also does not have a bar code.

If you examine the picture even closer—particularly the DVDs below—you’ll see that they bear bar codes, but not on the spines. No, they have them on the back and/or front of the DVDs. Of course, this method of labeling and organizing isn’t limited to products of the film industry alone.

Therefore, I’d like to propose that it is entirely possible that the manga books do, in fact, belong to the library!


Wh-WHAAAAT?! You’re kidding!! 

(Shoot, he’s got me there… Better think of something fast! Something about the books that sets them apart from—

…! I’ve got it!)

While that may be true, you’ve also overlooked one critical error: the titles of the books! Whether or not your hypothesis regarding the labeling system is correct, these titles aren’t alphabetized correctly! What kind of self-respecting librarian would misplace such vital books? 

Well, Edgeworth?

While it pains me to have to point out something so obvious, I suppose I’ll make an exception for you, Wright.

Clearly, one look at the titles of the books next to the manga is a tell-all of this certain library’s less-than-stellar organization skills. None of the books are in alphabetical order, I’m afraid.

They could very well be alphabetized by author and not title, but it’s a little difficult to be able to decipher that from this single picture, wouldn’t you say?

Furthermore, the manga books themselves are in numerical order, suggesting some kind of system is in place, albeit not a very good one, if the alphabetizing is off.

At the end of the day, it seems like neither of us can draw a clear conclusion from this evidence alone. Your honor, I strongly suggest a recess in which we could investigate the library itself further.

I see the issue here very clearly.

Due to the uncertain nature of this case, we’ll have to postpone this decision until more decisive evidence can be obtained. The court will now take a 15-minute recess.


(W-wait, but I’m not—)



I’ve got some decisive evidence for you, pal!

We investigated further into the photo. Zooming in, you can see a label on the DVD case to the bottom left.

Photo Close-up added to the court record!

As you can see, pal, you can vaguely see the words “Of Toledo Law Library” on the label!

And, considering possibilities of the rest of that label, “University of Toledo" was the first to come to my mind!

A quick search on the University of Toledo’s Online Law Library Database revealed that there ARE the comics pictured in it!

Miles Edgeworth Ace Attorney Investigations volumes 1-4 and Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney volumes 1-5!

And there’s more! 

The section these comics are filed under is the “Law in Popular Culture" Section, which matches up with the stickers on the rest of the books on that shelf: "Lowering the Bar: Lawyer Jokes & Legal Culture”, “Prime Time Law”, “Lawyers in Your Living Room!" and "Reel Justice: The Courtroom Goes to the Movies”!

Not only is it in the right section, it’s also a documented part of the Law Library’s database!

How’s that for decisive evidence?

…It’s true that the books are definitely in the library, but look at the books that are immediately next to it, on the left side!

Specifically, the one that is titled “Lowering The Bar: Lawyer Jokes & Legal Culture”. Therefore, the shelf is clearly on the culture surrounding the law itself and popular culture relating to the legal world!

I hardly think it’s odd to see the Ace Attorney manga as an example of either humor in the legal world OR popular culture relating to the law!

O-Oh. I guess you have a point there…

Hey, wait a minute, pal!

Don’t go pullin’ the wool over my eyes here!

The University Library’s Online Database clearly shows that the comics are filed under “Law and Popular Culture”!


It doesn’t matter whether those comics are related to the section or not; they’ve been listed under it in this library, and that’s nothing but the truth!

And since they’re filed under “Law and Popular Culture”, they’re in the exact right place they’re supposed to be!

The books next to those comics have little stickers that say “Law Pop Culture” on them! That proves the books are on the shelf meant for the “Law and Popular Culture” books!

You can’t fool me so easily, pal!

Oh, I’m not disputing the fact THAT the library owns them…

…but rather, the significance of the original testimony in light of this fact!


However, as we have just learned, they were in a section explicitly dedicated to depictions of the law in popular culture… Which perfectly makes sense! So let me ask you….

Why did the witness act like seeing the manga in that particular part of the library was such a big deal?!? I’ll tell you why…

The witness has been DELIBERATELY MISLEADING this court this whole time!!!

Who are you, Herr Justice, to say how the human heart can or cannot act?

It’s definitely a fact that the witness is a fan of Ace Attorney. And that’s where your claim falls apart.

You’d be more surprised to see a picture of your big forehead in the newspaper than a picture of me, no?


Maybe I can help with this!

Your Honor! The defense requests a short therapy session for the witness!


The witness stated “IM CRYING” which means she must be exhibiting some sort of surprise at seeing the novels, but…


There’s discord in her voice!



You say that you were ‘crying’ when you saw the novels, but is that really true? Because you didn’t feel any surprise when you saw them! In fact, you exhibited no emotion at all!


Therefore, Your Honor, this backs up the defense’s argument that the witness is clearly lying!


This thread of thought is an absolute trainwreck, Ms. Cykes, Mr. Wright, Mr. Scruffy Detective, Mr. Justice, Mr. Gavin, and dear brother Miles. I’m here to debunk your foolish claims and set this to rest once and for all.

While the relevancy of the original poster’s comment is debatable and I would advise all of you to simply drop the argument, it’s easy to see why the OP stated it how they did. Frankly, I am ashamed of you all. Internet lingo is not uncommon in youth these days. 

The statement ‘I’m crying’ does not imply actual tears necessarily. On the internet, specifically a website such as this, where physical emotion is not visible, ‘I’m crying’ can be an expression of laughter, describing the tears that would come out of one’s eyes after an intense bout of laughing. The expression in no way means the person saying they are really crying, if that were true there would be an awful lot of foolish tears wasted. 

Furthermore, there is a version of this post that includes a testimony from the OP themselves. The OP states that the books are indeed in their university’s law library, which is enough to conclude the argument. While their original statement on the books is indeed vague, it is irrelevant to Mr. Wright and Mr. Edgeworth’s original quarrel on whether the books are really in the library. I would highly recommend that you all review the evidence before going into court with it. Those who drag out the trial on irrelevancies are incompetent and extremely foolish.

That is all. 

Fransizka von Karma! While that may be true, the trial must go on!

Like any good attorney, you should know that the trial can’t end until all doubt have been cleared! 

Even if the books do belong to the library, that doesn’t change the fact that the witness shouldn’t have found the fact the Ace Attorney Manga being in the library so funny. Because you’d expect to find something like that there, wouldn’t you? Even if they didn’t actually cry, there should be no surprise here!

So, tell me, what exactly about this is so funny or shocking?!

I’m sorry guys I know that I said that last one would be the very last reblog of this post but look:
Klavier, Athena, Franziska and Young!Mia!

And oh my god the edited mood matrix screen bless you aceattorneyblog


One of these is not like the others. One of these is not dead.

We’re a dA based Ace Attorney Facebook Roleplay group that’s been around since waay back at the end of 2011, but we’re doing a Great Revival and we need more roleplayers to do it!

Many main roles have yet to be taken! 

Having both Tumblr roleplayed and Facebook roleplayed myself, it’s a refreshing change! Please do try it out!
