I'm glad someone pointed out how bad AAO is with original female characters in general. I mean, first of all, I can only think of a single original female main character of a case. There aren't even that many cases starring canon female characters. And female OCs usually give off the feel that they were created explicitly and solely for a very specific role in the trial. Actually, I suppose how 'fixed' and unnatural characters are treated bothers me in general. You usually always have some idea of what role a character will play in the he mystery, which isn't my favourite thing. But back to female characters... There doesn't seem to be many of them who are touted as geniuses or legends, in fan cases. I mean, that wouldn't usually be a big deal, but AA/AAO stories tend to introduce a 'zomgsuperskilledlegendaryprodigyprosecutor' or something similar pretty often. This might be influenced by AA canon, but... eh. I guess the main problem is just how female characters often aren't an integral part to the story the same way other characters are. I mean, even in Turnabout Tomorrow, which I loved, the female prosecutor (I forgot her name whoops) wasn't really part of the same crowd as the other characters, and she wasn't related to the plot. Now, that can be interesting, except her character wasn't really written to her full potential, and DWaM even admitted that he wasn't sure where to go or what to do with her. I seem to see a lot of female characters in the same situations and roles, too... I just think AAO needs to work on its female characters. (Although, personally I'd like to see the community work on its characters in general...)
Well, I have no doubt some will think of me as a silly sjw maniac due to what I just typed. :p But oh well. What you said just suddenly made me want to discuss it. On other topics... What is your favorite language, Ferdie? Why? And are there any languages that you'd like to learn in the future?

ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE.
1. Do you prefer sushi with wasabi and/or soy sauce?
2. Least favourite character out of all AA games?
4. Favourite colour?
5. Favourite AA case?
6. Least favourite AA case?
7. Least favourite colour?
8. Favourite character out of all AA games?
9. Faaaavourite type of mushroom?
10. Favourite bird in Hatoful?
11. Favourite or favorite? (HINT: Your personal preference doesn't matter. It's always the one with the u. True story.)
If somebody came to you for advice on how to plan their AAO trial, what would you tell them?
On other topics... What is your favorite language, Ferdie? Why? And are there any languages that you'd like to learn in the future?
Tsk tsk, you wormed your way out of the manga question! So, do you read more manga than Death Note, or watch any anime? (Anything by Kaitani Shinobu, Nobuyuki Fukumoto, or Naoki Urasawa?)
I think we should stop taking up Ferdie's MotM space for this discussion, though. xP That is, unless Ferdie wants to join in. Otherwise we're deviating slightly off topic.
On-topic: Ferdie, musical tastes?
1. What kind of biology (or biological topics) do you like to teach? What are some topics that you have to teach but don't like teaching?
2. What can you say to people who are thinking about taking up a Biology major? I did read an article that pure Bio majors have a hard time getting jobs after college due to the topic being too broad and the skills of those majors are not defined.
3. You said something about insularity. Could you extend that to AAO (besides certain references)?
Going off BP (congrats by the way!): Favorite musical?

I don't want to get into the whole feminism debate, but I just want to say that I don't think the Bechdel test is very good to apply to fancases. Most fancases follow the attorney from start to end, and then a fair number of them use Nick or Polly as the attorney, so... the game basically has no room to pass the Bechdel test at all, simply because the only "viable" female attorney from the canon games is dead. Of course, just because the main character/attorney is a man doesn't mean you can't have compelling female characters. (Not that many fangames do... Basically, because of the structure of the fangames and general resources available, I don't feel like the Bechdel test is a good indicator of anything in terms of fancases, although that isn't to say they don't have their problems... (There's also a question of how much you extend the discussion of a "man"; if the victim is male, does talking about the murder count as talking about a man?))
