I love Athena!
Nice design, but she should never have been an attorney.
She's a refreshing protagonist, since Phoenix and Apollo are nearly interchangeable in the relatable straight man role, but she flips the usual dynamic on its head. I liked her best in the rakugo case because her personality contrasts well with Blackquill's edginess and she's cute when she gets bullied by him.
Blackquill is the only good thing to come out of Athena and it's a shame he's pretty much attached to her.
I agree that it is a shame that he's so closely linked to just one other character, he has potential for more interesting interactions with the cast.
What don't you like about Athena? At first I didn't like her either, thought it was a bad idea to have an AA protagonist that doesn't play the straight man role, but eventually I warmed up to that aspect just for the novelty of it. Don't know if I'd like her as the main protagonist of a game, though.
She just has too much shit slapped on to her. Her English became retarded because she spent 3 years in Europe, her character is Maya with a law degree, her court gimmick is absolutely awful and that's saying something when the previous one was checking a witness' pit stains to see if he's lying.
I honestly think they originally made her an assistant early in development but changed their minds later.
>her court gimmick is absolutely awful and that's saying something when the previous one was checking a witness' pit stains to see if he's lying.
I can also agree there, and the UI looking like a Fisher Price toy during those sequences doesn't help. Shit's just condescending.
>a refreshing protagonist,
she's appalingly bad and is a glorified assistant that was made protag for no reason
I'd argue the opposite. That she was a awesome protag that was forced into being the assistant in most cases for no reason.
I like her theme very much.
They also knew not to fuck it up and have her try to replace Wright out the gate.
I hope she has 2 cases in the next game, though I think her gimmick needs reworked.
Apollo still does have the best gimmick for the actual courtroom.
>not to fuck it up
by bloating the game with protags where none of them end up fullfilling the role of main character?
lmao, it's one of the most laughably bad setups for any game, let alone AA
it created a shambolic, unfocused mess
>Ema: apparently hyper-sensitive to touch, as in RftA she's able to detect minute changes in a room's temperature with pinpoint accuracy
>Apollo: hyper-acuitive vision lets him perceive unconscious tells
>Athena: hyper-sensitive hearing allows her to pick up on fluctuations of emotion in voice
So pick your poison, is the next AA assistant/regular going to come in with hyper-sensitivity to smell or taste?
>hyper-sensitivity to taste
>hyper sensitive to smells
>constantly around Athena who works out frequently and Trucy who does her own performances in shows
>Mia: Hyper-sexual, can literally not go more than 48 hours without having sex
that doesn't sound right
All I know about her is her desk slam. But it's a really cool desk slam.
I always chuckle when she does it twice.
do girls really look like this? keep in mind if you say no i will be sad.
Pearl and Gumshoe.
Maya and True-see
Franziska and Franziska (legal)
Ema and Kay
