The Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney trailer is one of those that is so overtly silly, so over the top, that it cannot help but be charming. Featuring snappy suits, seething tension, and impossible hair, Phoenix Wright carries with it a sort of offbeat charm that, should the stars align, looks to have the potential to buck the trend of terrible video game movies. The dialogue is entirely in Japanese, but have no fear: even with zero understanding of the language, the trailer is plenty enjoyable. I can only assume that "Yee-Yadi!"(?) is the Japanese equivalent of "objection." Partly this has to do with context - there's a notable lack of music, as though to alert the viewer that something dramatic is about to happen - though mainly it's to do with the juxtaposition of the pointed finger and intense features that positively scream, "I am a man of purpose, and I will not stand for this s**t."
Despite my good-natured jabs at Japan, they do "weird" like no one else. Yes, we westerners may delve into the surreal, the trippy, and the "i have a video camera and eight tabs of LSD; let's roll" oddness, Japan has a signature style of strange that simply cannot be emulated. For that, my friends in the Land of the Rising Sun, I salute you. In the words of a thousand stereotypes, "Thanks bringing for bountiful laughter time =^..^= "
