Gyakuten Saiban 2: The Truth Reborn, Again... (逆転裁判2 −蘇る真実, 再び..., lit. "Turnabout Trial 2 - Truth Resurrected, Again...") is the second of three musicals based on the Ace Attorney video game series. A collaboration between Capcom Japan and the Takarazuka Revue, an all-female musical theater troupe, the show starred Cosmos Troupe's Tomu Ranju in the lead role. After the success of the first musical, Gyakuten Saiban: The Truth Reborn, this sequel was performed from August to September, 2009. The first and second musicals drew a total combined attendance of over 50,000 people. Unlike for the first musical, the game series creator, Shu Takumi contributed some feedback midway through production.
As with its predecessor, this show uses the names from the English localizations of the games, despite being a Japanese production (e.g., Phoenix Wright instead of "Ryuuichi Naruhodou"). The plot of the first half of this musical is completely original, while the second half is loosely based on the events of Farewell, My Turnabout.
Plot[edit | edit source]
Act 1[edit | edit source]
A few months after his defense of Leona Clyde, Phoenix Wright has moved his practice to his hometown in California. However, Wright was now a broken man, as Clyde died in an accident shortly after he cleared her of murder charges. He had lost his drive to be a lawyer, and was considering retirement.
Whilst in his hometown, a woman named Lucia Aleia asked him to defend her mother in court. When asked why, she explained that her mother was the teacher for his classroom trial and he takes the case, ready to take on Franziska von Karma in court.
Act 2[edit | edit source]
After the case, Wright decides to continue his law career after having a talk with Aleia. They part ways, and Wright walks into the sunset.
