A manga based on the Ace Attorney anime has been running since the May 2016 issue of VJump and the first volume is scheduled to release in October. I haven't read it myself, but from what I heard it's simply an adaptation of the TV series (and not something original like the Kuroda/Maekawa manga).

Nah... I don't think I want to pay for something I have seen before free and in colour. Also, if an adaptation of an adaptation has anything in common with a translation of an translation, I'm not sure whether I would consider that a good idea. By the way, it somewhat annoyes me that Capcom seems to care more about tons of adaptions then about localising stuff everybody wants to see localised expect of themselves.

It isn't like Capcom doesn't have experience with that :D

I hope you realize that those things have almost nothing to do with each other? The manga is an adaptation of the anime, and that's not owned by just Capcom, it's owned by two other entities besides Capcom. Just being one of the groups that have to agree to the creation of a manga by a seperate mangaka costs Capcom no extra resources. Note that this is Capcom HQ (JP), not Capcom USA: Capcom USA has the localization resources and is the one that makes the ultimate call of what gets localized.

Gotta admit, that cover doesn't look inviting...
Add to that the fact it's not an original story (and an adaptation of the anime, of all things), I can't say I'm very inclined to get this manga

If I wasn't fond of the anime, why should I be fond of the manga which is based on the anime?

Is there really a big audience for this? I don't mean that in a rude way, but I'm curious. It is a manga adaptation of an anime adaptation of a very popular video game (one that has has tons of both original "official" manga and fan-made stuff too). I'm not sure why any AA fan would buy this considering they've already seen 2 different versions of this story already and they could go get original AA content of some form or another to read.

In general, are a lot of anime series adapted into manga form (I know the other way around is usually how it works)? Is it popular when it happens?

But I might be biased because honestly I'm not even interested in the "movie novelizations" that are written and come out after a big film like Star Wars.

I wish they'd make an AJ-era manga either taking place between AJ and DD, or between DD and SoJ. That I would buy in a heartbeat.

It is not a rare practice by any means. It is important to note that the anime franchise is not owned by just Capcom. It's owned by Capcom, Y-TV and A1-Pictures. It's technically a franchise seperate of the games. It has its own set of merchandise (stickers, straps etc.), and this manga is also part of that. Note that the manga was always part of the deal: it even started before the anime. It was never "just" the anime. Also note that previous manga based on the franchise weren't even released by this company (Shueisha = Jump).

People sometimes seem to forget this, but the Ace Attorney anime is mainly aimed at children. It aired on 17:30 on Saturdays, in a block with Detective Conan. Considering a single volume is way cheaper than a whole game (+console), and the fact that home video is crazy expensive in Japan, it's not completely inconceivable that people will buy this. Also, you actually reach a wider audience with a manga than with an anime. You either had to watch the series live at 17:30 on Saturdays, or go out of your way to stream it online (and each episode is ONLY available for free in the week it originally aired). So the 'chances' for the series to reach a wider audience is very limited. The manga on the other hand is serialized in V-Jump, which contains other manga like Dragon Ball Super (another anime -> manga adaptation). People who may have never heard of Ace Attorney before are more likely to come across it in a magazine featuring a series they do read, than that one half hour a week on TV. So the potential market becomes A LOT bigger with a serialized manga.

I can't imagine the manga continuing for long though, unless it works as a bridge for a second season later. Though to be honest, the ratings for the anime were... mediocre at best. Yes, it consistently got into the top 10 best rated anime each week, but that was likely because of the prime-time anime slot, not of the show. Ace Attorney's ratings would sometimes only be half of those of Detective Conan (aired right after Ace Attorney; same genre), and the previous show in Ace Attorney's time slot also did consistently better in the ratings, so I'm not really sure about what the network thought of AA's performance.

I'm not sure the timeslot was that big a deal for audience. It definitely helped, but not by much. The Monster Hunter Stories anime also airs during prime timeslot (just before/after Dragon Ball Super, irrc), and yet the first episode failed to even get in the Top 10 at (so less than 2.7 average household rating). And Monster Hunter is a vastly more popular series, not just among gamers but also the general public.

So timeslot isn't everything, the AA anime did get the ratings it did on its own strengths. And yeah, not sure how they feel about the audience it got. While I don't think it's nearly as bad as you make it out, it was still pretty average. Though the real issue is that it didn't really broaden the audience (as seen by AA6 significant underperformance in sales) as intended.

If Monster Hunter Stories is airing before Dragon Ball Super, and I believe DBS has its old Dragon Ball Kai slot, it's not *that* big a slot compared to that of Ace Attorney, actually. I mean, it's a good time slot for children's shows in general, but it's like around eight or eight-thirty. In the morning. In the weekend (Sunday). From what I remember, a lot of teenagers (and now grown-ups) play the Monster Hunter games, but they aren't likely to get up early in the weekend to watch MHS. The 17:30~19:30 slots on the other hand, especially in the weekend, have access to a much bigger potential audience.

This is good I'v always wanted to read the Phoenix Wright manga.

Will the manga be released in North American book stores once it's translated?
