renshideout asked: hey, chancake-san. I was just wondering how did you get into AA fandom, and who was your first favourite AA character?
Hey! Man, I had to trace back my deviantart stuff from 6 years ago for this… PAINFUL SACRIFICES I MAKE FOR TUMBLR ASKS, I SWEAR.
I’m pretty sure my first exposure to AA was the abundance of Phoenix Wrong videos all over the internet. My brother finally got his hands on a DS with a copy of Justice For All and I thought “Oh my god I have to play that weird lawyer game and understand all those videos!” I didn’t realise it was actually the second game, so I was wondering where the hell that ‘purple cravat guy’ was the entire time. My favourite characters were Phoenix and Maya, though!
My first AA fanart ever:
(why I bothered signing this rubbish is beyond me)
I wasn’t really involved in the fandom during the time I was playing AA1-3 to be honest. I hardly drew much fanart and only mentioned it a few times in my dA journals. By the time Apollo Justice came around, I was all over that shit and nosedived into the fandom thanks to Tegaki.
This was my first Apollo fanart:
