Anime News Network's coverage of Anime Expo 2018 is sponsored by Yen Press.

The staff of Gyakuten Saiban ~ Sono "Shinjitsu," Igiari! ~ Season 2, the second anime season based on the Ace Attorney (Gyakuten Saiban) game series, unveiled a new visual and October 6 premiere for the anime at an Anime Expo talk event. The staff also unveiled a trailer.

Original game director Shu Takumi is collaborating on the anime. A-1 Pictures is again handling animation production, with returning staff members director Ayumu Watanabe, series writer Atsuhiro Tomioka, composer Kaoru Wada, and character designer and chief animation director Keiko Ōta. Yukiko Imai is serving as assistant director.

The returning cast includes:

  • Aoi Yuki as Maya Fey/Mayoi Ayasato
  • Masashi Tamaki as Miles Edgeworth/Reiji Mitsurugi
  • Chie Nakamura as Mia Fey/Chihiro Ayasato
  • Masami Iwasaki as Dick Gumshoe/Keisuke Itonokogiri
  • Tooru Nara as Larry Butz/Masashi Yahari

The first series premiered in April 2016 and covered the first two games in the series. Crunchyroll streamed the anime as it aired in Japan, and Funimation released the first part on home video in January.
