Gyaku Shaun Sai Hanri (逆車云裁半リ) is a lost Ace Attorney fangame released in 2003. It was made by Cheshire (チェシャ). It is unknown where or when this game was available to play or to download.
The only available information (in English) comes from an entry on doujinshi.org.
The game stars anthropomorphic animal characters, three of them who resemble "furry" versions of Phoenix Wright (as a wolf called Tanbo), Miles Edgeworth (as a panther called Renji) and the judge (as an owl), while all of the other characters appear to be original.
A medical college teacher, Abe, strangles a woman to death. In order to save his own hide, he decides to plant fake evidence in order to frame a young student, Ukimo.
Tanbo, an attorney, has to defend Ukimo while facing Renji, the prosecutor.
Plot elements are reminiscent of the original Ace Attorney games, such as a murder in the opening scene with the perpetrator desperately preparing to frame someone else (Frank Sawit in the first game) or an antagonist wearing an electronic red shiny eyepiece (Godot in Trials & Tribulations).
Graphics are directly based on the original game's but the music is original, possibly due to copyright issues.
In spite of this, the game's elements are derivative enough to make YouTube Gaming identify the footage as the original Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney game.
There is footage of the game on YouTube, but it is unknown if it is the full gameplay or just the first part. An uploader claims there are no more playable copies of the game available.
