Athena Cykes – Ace Attorney 5 Artbook Translation (2)

Today I translated the second of Athena Cykes’s “Character Design” page (one of several) from the official Ace Attorney 5 visual book. This is from page 48 specifically.

I edited the original image and translated it to produce this:

Below is the transcript I wrote up in English in case it is hard to read on the page. Below it is the original Japanese transcript for anybody who is interested.

Her next design page is coming soon!

Character DesignCharacter Planning Illustrations – Athena Cykes 48

Athena Cykes/Design Rough Sketches
Side Up / Earring / Resonating Crystals / White Suit / Different Color Yellow / Silhouette / Hair that shows eccentric personality / Hair tied / A flaring skirt

Close to the ear / Rolled up round and round / A spiral shell / Bangs / Image of a wave / Objection! / Remaining Hair OR Necklace / Bang bang!

Ace Attorney 5’s new character. A new member of “Wright* Anything Agency,” and so an important main character –Athena Cykes*. Of course, there are plenty of rough sketches that went into her design. “Sound” was the keyword in making her character, and so in the earlier designs, we made designs with seashells and waves. When we made her silhouette, the hairdo with the ponytail sticking out was carried onto the final design.

*-Japanese names were Naruhodo (Phoenix Wright), and Kizuki Kokone (Athena Cykes).

Here is the original image in Japanese along with the original transcript:

キャラクターデザイン●キャラクター設定イラスト希月心音 48

 

希月心音/デザインラフ①
サイドアープ・ イアリング・ 音叉の能力クリスタル・ 白スーツ・ 差色黄・シルエットにたとき・ 偏性、優性の出るカミ・ シュシュ風・ フレアスカート・ おブユ・

 

耳の近く・ グルグル巻き・ 巻貝音叉・ 前髪・ 波のイメージ・ 異議あり! 髪留 ORネックレス・ バンバン・

 

『逆転裁判5』の新キャラクターであり、“成歩堂なんでも事務所”に所属する重要なメインキャラクターである希月心音。デザインラフも、もちろん数多く残っている。”音“がキーワードであるためが、初期のデザインには、貝殻や波をイメージしたものも。シルエットにしたときに個性が出るサイドアップの髪型は、現在のココネにも引き継がれている。
