THEY HAVE THE ACE ATTORNEY OFFICIAL MANGA IN MY LAW LIBRARY I AM CRYING.
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?
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—)
(Sorry I’ve actually never played/read Phoenix Wright, someone should translate my findings to appropriate characters)
Based on the picture alone it is difficult to draw a clear conclusion. However, utilizing library records can show that these books ARE INDEED PART OF THE LIBRARY COLLECTION.
We can see from a DVD case along the bottom that these materials are marked “-y of Toledo Law Library”, which can reasonably be interpreted to be the University of Toledo’s Law Library.
By searching the catalog of the University’s Library we can see that the manga are available.
Furthermore, searching for other books from the shelf, such as “Lowering the Bar" and "Prime Time Law" shows that they are located in the same "LAW in Popular Culture" section as the Ace Attorney books.
Therefore appleseeddrama’s original claim is TRUE.
(As a side note, why is book 5 for library use only, while the others are not?)
So can we talk about the absolutely stunning duplicity going on here?
ok, why the fuck is the graph upside down. that is incredibly misleading
Because its from the Florida Department of Justice, and they have a mandate here.
for those who have trouble inverting it in their head, ftfy:
this is some of the most blatant twisting of info i have ever seen holy shit
Mycroft is supposed to be ruffled after a tumble on the office sofa but I’m afraid he’s looking a bit, um, pretty?
Oh, these are GORGEOUS.
And you will hear me espousing my love for these two fics in the next episode of Three Patch Podcast!
Major life events in comics!
I document so much of my life in comics, it seemed … lazy?… to neglect such a big part of it. I’ve been trying to get this one out for a while, but i’m not prone to sappiness or self-aggrandizing (despite what making endless comics about myself might imply) so i had a hard time figuring out an approach.
So i went with honesty :)
Last year Lucy Knisley told the story of her engagement in a heartfelt and open comic that i really respected. I respect ALL of her work, her comics are awesome, if you’ve never checked them out you totally should. In sitting down to tell my own story it made me think about what getting married means to me. I’m sure it means something slightly different to everyone, but is by no means any less meaningful. But crystallizing that idea helped me here.
I was sweaty and gross and said “Yeah. Sure.” and Jason didn’t change his mind. I think we’re gonna be alright :)
Garnet’s the strongest gem. Don’t forget it.
Friendship is magic.
J: “This is close.”
another beautiful fic [x]
Another cellphone photo but I legitimately left my laptop at the school so I have a relevant excuse this time.
