Maiku Kamishiro is a high school boy living by himself and trying to make ends meet by working as a programmer. He owns a photograph of himself as a young boy along with a little girl whom he believes is his long-lost twin sister. One day, he meets two cute teenage girls - Miina Miyafuji and Karen Onodera - who possess the very same photograph. Miina, and Karen even have the same eye color as Maiku. After much confusion, Maiku finally allows the two to stay in his house until he can find out which one is his real sister. On top of that, he must fend off the advances of his peers, including the class president and a homosexual classmate. Written by
The box of snack sticks that Karen Onodera and Marie eats are called Prech. It is a fictional clone of Pretz, a pretzel-styled biscuit stick snack manufactured in Japan. This is a continuation of the joke from Onegai Teacher, which had Mizuho's snacks being Pochy, a fictional clone to Pocky. Because of trademark infringement, it is common for anime writers to change the names of popular brand names, thereby circumventing the legal dilemma of using real world brand names. See more »
Skip Onegai Teacher and go straight to this spin-off
It took a load of convincing for me to watch Onegai Twins, being it the spin-off of one of my most loathed anime shows, Onegai Teacher. But to my surprise and pleasure Twins has almost nothing to do with the original, and was a refreshing experience.
Twins is a balanced mix of romance and comedy. Most often there will be too much of one or the other - especially romance - and the sappiness will ruin the show. But in this case I was very pleased with the way it was presented.
You won't find the usual action/peril overkill that reside in most series, this one is for those times when you're not thirsting for violence and want to see something a little bit more sensible. I'm glad I put aside my presumptions about Twins and gave it a try. 8/10
