Souji Mitsuka (CV: Nobunaga Shimazaki, Sumire Uesaka) loves twintails, the hair style when you put up your hair in two tails. But a strange female called Twoearle (CV: Maaya Uchida) appears, and monsters have invaded earth to remove the attribute of loving twintails out of the girls so that no girls will wear it. Souji, together with his childhood friend Aika Tsuba (CV: Yuuka Aisaka) and classmate Erina Shindou (CV: Chinatsu Akasaki), now have to fight these monsters to save earth and twintails. People call them the Twin Tails.
This anime based on the novel series with the same name is a complete joke. I really enjoyed the first episode – I watched it twice in a row – but the jokes are the same through the entire show and it very quickly gets old. I had hoped to see a deeper storyline and it pissed me off that Aika was called flat, tomboy, trap and similar. I realized, of course, that it’s supposed to be funny she’s called that, when in fact Souji is indeed a guy for real, but turns into a girl when transformed, but it’s just not funny.
As a mahou shoujo (magical girl genre) lover, I might have had too much expectations on the show, which fell flat pretty quickly and watching through it was a pain. I almost cried from joy when it was finished. Unless you like a objectifying show with awful humour where girls are wearing tight or barely no clothes while calling it an armour, this is not for you. If I could, I would destroy it with their own weapons. Maybe I should try.
Nope, apparently not going to happen.
