Summary: The column "Naruhodo Gyakuten Saiban!" ("I See! Ace Attorney!") in the monthly game magazine DreaMaga (an abbreviation derived from its old format titled DreamCast Magazine) ran for 19 months starting in the September 2004 issue and was written by Gyakuten Saiban (Ace Attorney) creator Takumi Shuu, as build-up to the release of the DS port of the first game. These columns usually consisted of a short essay by Takumi, some dialogues that had been cut out of the games, and a one-page dialogue-based short story starring the characters from Gyakuten Saiban, accompanied by an original illustration by Suekane Kumiko, the original main character designer of the games.. The theme for the sixth column is Gyakuten Saiban 3 (Ace Attorney 3 - Trials & Tribulations), with as highlight the original idea he had for the final episode of this game. Note that this translation only includes the column itself, and none of the other parts (short story/cut dialogues).
