THEY HAVE THE ACE ATTORNEY OFFICIAL MANGA IN MY LAW LIBRARY I AM CRYING.
Your honor, something is amiss here!
As you are probably aware, library materials are labeled with barcodes as well as a number to determine their location on the shelf, as per the Dewey Decimal System. The books just to the left of the manga are labeled, as are the DVDs just in view on the lower shelf. Look even further behind these shelves and you’ll see that even those books are labeled!
Ladies and gentlemen of the courtroom, I invite you to take a closer look at the volumes that are, allegedly, part of this law library! Something is missing from the spines, isn’t there?
Where are the bar codes?!
This is a blatant contradiction! The OP is lying— these volumes cannot, therefore, be a part of this library at all! I propose that they simply brought these materials in for the sake of the joke!!
Only focusing on one aspect and not the whole of the issue, are we, Mr. Wright? Typical.
Your honor, if you bring your attention to the books just left of the manga, you’ll notice there’s a book (the second to the left) that also does not have a bar code.
If you examine the picture even closer—particularly the DVDs below—you’ll see that they bear bar codes, but not on the spines. No, they have them on the back and/or front of the DVDs. Of course, this method of labeling and organizing isn’t limited to products of the film industry alone.
Therefore, I’d like to propose that it is entirely possible that the manga books do, in fact, belong to the library!
Wh-WHAAAAT?! You’re kidding!!
(Shoot, he’s got me there… Better think of something fast! Something about the books that sets them apart from—
…! I’ve got it!)
While that may be true, you’ve also overlooked one critical error: the titles of the books! Whether or not your hypothesis regarding the labeling system is correct, these titles aren’t alphabetized correctly! What kind of self-respecting librarian would misplace such vital books?
While it pains me to have to point out something so obvious, I suppose I’ll make an exception for you, Wright.
Clearly, one look at the titles of the books next to the manga is a tell-all of this certain library’s less-than-stellar organization skills. None of the books are in alphabetical order, I’m afraid.
They could very well be alphabetized by author and not title, but it’s a little difficult to be able to decipher that from this single picture, wouldn’t you say?
Furthermore, the manga books themselves are in numerical order, suggesting some kind of system is in place, albeit not a very good one, if the alphabetizing is off.
At the end of the day, it seems like neither of us can draw a clear conclusion from this evidence alone. Your honor, I strongly suggest a recess in which we could investigate the library itself further.
I see the issue here very clearly.
Due to the uncertain nature of this case, we’ll have to postpone this decision until more decisive evidence can be obtained. The court will now take a 15-minute recess.
(W-wait, but I’m not—)
I’ve got some decisive evidence for you, pal!
We investigated further into the photo. Zooming in, you can see a label on the DVD case to the bottom left.
Photo Close-up added to the court record!
As you can see, pal, you can vaguely see the words “Of Toledo Law Library” on the label!
And, considering possibilities of the rest of that label, “University of Toledo" was the first to come to my mind!
A quick search on the University of Toledo’s Online Law Library Database revealed that there ARE the comics pictured in it!
Miles Edgeworth Ace Attorney Investigations volumes 1-4 and Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney volumes 1-5!
And there’s more!
The section these comics are filed under is the “Law in Popular Culture" Section, which matches up with the stickers on the rest of the books on that shelf: "Lowering the Bar: Lawyer Jokes & Legal Culture”, “Prime Time Law”, “Lawyers in Your Living Room!" and "Reel Justice: The Courtroom Goes to the Movies”!
Not only is it in the right section, it’s also a documented part of the Law Library’s database!
How’s that for decisive evidence?
Get Nickroll’d, Ace Attorney fandom.

People who write PTSD as lolzy ‘drinks and hallucinations with a side of temper’ without covering the intrusive thoughts, hypervigilance, insomnia, piconightmares, and above all the awareness you have that you KNOW you’re not right and it’s not really happening but you can’t stop it, you can’t…
Super-dee-duper set from lisathevampireslayer! I’ve always loved the idea of gifsets like this. We’ve “made it” guys!

OKAY, so I tend to think of introversion and extroversion as the source of a person’s energy. While it CAN manifest as extroverted = outgoing and introverted = solitary, how social you are isn’t really what makes you intro/extroverted. An extroverted person derives their energy from their environment - what’s happening around them, people, events. We already know that Nico wasn’t always the type to keep to himself, and I tend to think of Titan’s Curse!Nico as his natural state. He’s characterized as easily excitable, super curious, always talking and asking questions and I think Nico is at his happiest, his most energized, when he’s around other people. His self-imposed isolation is his coping mechanism after the death of his sister, who was pretty much his only support system growing up. It is a reaction to a traumatic event - it is not the way he naturally engages with his environment. I think the biggest tell of his extroversion for me is the simple fact that Nico is miserable when he’s alone, and he seeks out comfort in small physical interactions (with Hazel, the only person he currently feels close enough to to seek them out with) - holding hands, kisses on the cheek. He wants to be alone to avoid getting hurt - not because he prefers to be alone.
I think Leo’s introversion speaks for itself - I’ve always felt that Leo is at his best, his most genuine, when he’s alone and working on a piece of machinery. He can isolate himself for days on end and tinker with engineering issues and emerge fully recharged afterwards. Leo doesn’t really take in or think about the people around him much, and frankly his interactions with them are often one-sided, with him cracking a joke and them playing it off. All of his energy comes from himself. I’m an introverted person myself and I can be perfectly happy not leaving my room for weeks as long as I have a project to immerse myself in - I feel like Leo is pretty much the same.
+1ing this. So dead on.
