Phoenix 2.

I don't have time to talk about it. It's hard to talk about it.

I don't want to break down the good and bad points without telling the full story, because then it might not come off right.

But I'll say this. I was devastated by the first act. It ruined the memory of some very precious people to me. And the story used, I feel, rather cheap plot devices.

I guess it turned out acceptable in the end. Still, to me the highlights were Eri-chan with a whip and Kai-chan who is, in fact, the real killer. Sweet little Kai-chan who really had good intentions if only Kozue hadn't driven Kai-chan's father to suicide T____T;; Awesome, awesome Kai-chan who emoted so well and spat out her lines like machine gun fire -- when Tomu fumbled a tiny bit once or twice. ;)

And Mii-chan, who leads a SONG! About INVESTIGATION! And Tomochin was good, she got to be a more "reformed" Edgeworth, although I still don't feel she OWNED it like Eriko.

Tomu was Tomu aka close to godly. X3 Seiko was a typical musumeyaku heroine aka didn't get much personality to work with. :/

...Kai-chan ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ I'll see it again for Kai-chan and Eri-chan (oh and Koumai & goons, yes ♥) and the songs and dances and the finale--

--and there were no dogs, by the way. ^^;;;

Awww, poor little Kai-chan! ♥♥♥ I am still not really processing the whole Eri-with-a-whip thing. When did my little flaily baby musumeyaku get big enough to be given a WHIP?? And Tomu. What is there to say but ♥♥♥? Love her love her love her.

It's disappointing that the first act botched it from the sounds of it. I was afraid that might happen and was really half hoping that they would find a way to sidestep the whole issue but I guess that was too much to ask.

Hmm...has Zuka ever really done a sequel quite like this before? (Okay, so there are the 15 million versions of BeruBara, but it's not like they go into what happens to Oscar and Andre in heaven) As much as the announcement of this show excited me, I worried a little that it couldn't live up to the original.

When you have the time, I'm curious to hear your analysis.

In regards to Kai-chan, I think my brain is broken XD

A whole song for Mii-chan?! Was she delightful and funny and wonderful and gorgeous?

Delightful and funny and wonderful yes, but "gorgeous" only in the finale. ;) Dick Gumshoe is not the gorgeous type XDD

Dick Gumshoe is gorgeous in the strange and inexplicable dorky way.
