Part 1

I... honestly don't have anything witty to say here.

Go crazy so long as you read the rules, and the contact post is open if you guys need me for anything.

If you're going to post images on the meme, just remember to read the rules and we'll be golden.

UPDATE: Since the release of Professor Layton vs Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney is still recent, there will be a rule placed on spoilers regarding these two games. In other words, if you wish to discuss or make any references to anything from PL vs PW, go ahead. However, you must warn for and mark your spoilers by using the code below.

When I took over the series’ localization direction starting with the second game, one of the first things I had to deal with was what to do with Maya’s hometown and all the mysticism surrounding the Fey clan. It was then that I created a little headcanon for myself (which I suppose is actually real canon now for the localized version): while “Gyakuten Saiban” takes place in Japan, the Los Angeles that “Ace Attorney” takes place in is an alternate universe where anti-Japanese sentiments and anti-immigrant laws were not enacted, and Japanese culture was allowed to flourish and blend into the local culture in the same manner as other immigrant cultures.

Not counting budget and time restraints, this little headcanon has pretty much dictated what I would keep as Japanese and what to completely localize. For example, anything related to Maya’s clan and the Kurain Channeling Technique is pretty much guaranteed to stay Japanese because that’s her heritage while Japanese foods that are not commonly known in the West will probably be localized in the interest of keeping the game from needing a 50-page explanatory booklet.

By the way, random facts: I adore the fandom name “Japanifornia”, and imagine my surprise when I first saw the “Big Hero 6” movie trailer! No matter what anyone says, Japanifornia will always be THE ORIGINAL San Fransokyo to me. *grin*

I'm so glad that japanifornia is canon

or will it be changed to "meija era japanifornia meets victorian era england"
