Twintails: the glory of all mankind—or at least that is what first-year high school student Souji Mitsuka believes. At school, Souji spends most of his time daydreaming and rating girls' twintails, even going as far as creating a club dedicated to the hairstyle. His obsession does not go unnoticed, however; when monsters from outer space attack Earth and claim the world's twintails for themselves, a strange woman named Twoearle enlists Souji to fight back using twintails of his own!
By transforming into the twin-tailed warrior Tail Red, Souji combats the vicious alien organization known as Ultimegil, whose main goal is to colonize Earth and steal everyone's spiritual energy, or "attribute power." Alongside fellow twin-tailed fighters Aika Tsube and Erina Shindou, Souji must find a way to defeat the invading army and defend the twintails he holds so dear.
"If you love twintails in your heart, anything is possible!" - TailRed
Welcome to the anime of the season. No, of ALL the seasons.
From start to finish, Ore, Twintails ni Narimasu provides perhaps the most deep and thought-provoking story I've ever come across in my anime career. It blows just about all the cult classics out of the water with its originality. The plot revolves around a typical high-school boy named Souji. Or rather he's typical with the exception that he's a diehard fetishist for twintails. Already here we can see that the anime is starting to go down a direction you don't see particularly often.
One day, Souji happens to run into a perverted scientist from outer space who gives him a mission. A mission to protect planet Earth from the EVIL HORNY SPACE LIZARDS threatening to steal all the twintails from our beloved homeworld for themselves. Therefore, the girl provides Souji with an epic space-tech gadget which channels his love for twintails into a power capable of transforming him into a mecha-suit-clad red-twintailed loli named TailRed, wielding super powers strong enough to thwart the evil space lizards' immoral assault on the planet. This plot twist was mindboggling to me and left me in awe due to how incredibly unique and well thought-out it was.
Of course a super heroine freedom fighter of justice wouldn't be complete without her band of epic sidekicks present as well, but fear not because Ore, Twintails ni Narimasu delivers absolutely flawlessly in this category as well. You see, as philosophical and interesting as TailRed is as a character, she is not the only masterful heroine this anime has to offer, no sir. Because there is also her loyal compatriot super heroines TailBlue and TailYellow fighting by her side as well! And as shocking as it may sound, they're even appropriately named since their nicknames *also* match the colour of their respective hair! The difference being that TailBlue and TailYellow are actually blessed with being twintailed young women in their natural human form as well, and we all know by now that twintails by default implies that anything is awesome. By adding these two additional super heroines to the main cast, the quality of the show is automatically multiplied by a factor of three, meaning that if the anime wasn't mindblowingly amazing enough as it was, then with this taken into account it suddenly shatters all sorts of records.
But the joyride doesn't stop even there. After all, heroines of justice can only fulfill their roles as long as there is an enemy to fight, and the villains of Ore, Twintails ni Narimasu are of a scale unlike anything you've ever laid your eyes upon before. Since it's common knowledge that twintails are the answer to everything, have you ever heard of a plot so malicious and figuratively dripping with ulterior motives as one where the evil space lizards are literally trying to steal away all the twintails of planet Earth from mankind? And then once the lizards have done so, surely they will be spending their retirement years doing both this and that with their legendary captured hairstyles? The shock and horror this notion fills me with upon merely considering it is on a level entirely of its own. As a result, the conflict between the twintailed warriors and the space lizards feels disturbingly real and manages to captivate the viewers completely during each and every second of the anime's progression.
The production value is no less staggering either. Every time you begin a new episode of this anime and get to hear the opening theme kick in, your heart and soul will get filled with a kind of euphoric tranquility upon being exposed to the beautiful lyrics dedicated to everyone's passion and love for twintails. It is an entirely different level of affection and dedication compared to what you'd ever find in any other anime, and as a result you'll always be right there in the twintail mindset whenever you watch this anime. It is truly a work of art in its own right.
And regarding the visuals, all that needs to be emphasized is the breathtaking character design of our three super heroines, especially TailRed herself. Just one glance at them and your mind, heart and... *other regions* are all going to be virtually bursting with happiness and satisfaction. If you're the type who gets jealous easily however then you might want to take caution as finding yourself being unable to huggle and cuddle with TailRed in person due to the pesky boundaries between fiction and reality can be a heartbreaking experience. What you can do however is tie up your hair into twintails yourself and you can have the peace of mind of knowing that she'll love you like nothing else because of that alone. If only everyone else had a heart as open as hers, there would be so much less malice in this world.
As a whole, Ore, Twintails ni Narimasu is a masterpiece unlike any other and does a massive job at saving the currently declining anime industry. It takes everything you thought you could take for granted in this day and age and flips it up-side-down with a fresh and unique storyline and the most likable heroine cast in anime history. We can only hope that the rest of the anime industry will give this show the attention it well and truly deserves and tries to learn from it, because if they do then Ore, Twintails ni Narimasu might very well be the gateway anime paving the way for what the future of multimedia will look like.
A revolution in the anime industry. Add this to your must-watch-before-you-die list right now and come feel the love. You will not regret it.read more
"Gonna be the twintails!" is a show created by otakus, for otakus, that makes fun of otakus.
From the get-go, it revolves around an invasion of otaku aliens from another planet who feed off the positive energy humans give through their love. Essentially they are a bunch of perverted losers who leech off of others and ruin people's lives, sound familiar?
Our heroes, a group of twintailed heroines must use their love of twintails to fuel their magical girl powers in order to defeat these monsters, thus saving the human race. Along the way, it's a hilarious journey with perverted humor, (Like gender bending, tentacles and ecchi scenes) and then just about anything else that you will see in a typical high school comedy anime.
The aliens are COMPLETELY hilarious, the cast is great (Especially Twoearle), and pretty much everyone in the show is necessary, you don't have 50 different characters that are completely irrelevant popping up for 30 seconds just to fill screen time. The voice acting is solid, the theme song is catchy ("LES-CUE!"), and I have no real qualms about the sound. Likewise, the artwork is great and pretty typical of a modern show. (The boobs are exaggerated as hell on tail yellow for comedic effect)
My only qualm with this show was the fact that the story, like any magical girl show bar madoka, was the sheer predictability. While it was entertaining as hell, and did a great job of satirizing anime similar to something like gintama, like gintama the story is kind of lacking, since the point of the show isn't the plot.
While it may not be quite a masterpiece, it's an absolute blast to watch, and I highly recommend it if you're into this sort of show. Anyway, there's two types of people who rate this show poorly, people who either-
A: Don't like this kind of humor.
B: Just don't get the satire.
If you don't enjoy perverted jokes and constant porn references, like Sekotai Yakuindomo, this is not your show. This is a show created to mock the present state of anime, especially the magical girl genre, and it heavily exaggerates perverted scenes in order to make a point. Try not to take this show too seriously.read more
Ever see power rangers, imagine that with a gender bender premise on which instead of masked hero you get a loli-girl from a student
To be honest there are 3 big points of this anime that it does well the rest are about average.
1. the idea is simple kill the baddies, and it doesn't waste time trying to gather sympathy for the enemy like naruto or bleach or any other thing, the bad guys don't have SOB stories but instead are wacky, perverted monsters and end of the day they get sliced up by girls with weapons and we feel happy about it by the end.
2. There are no serious issues in this anime, it doesn't talk about global warming, get too deeply psychological, or attack some societal flaw it just is about a guy with a god-tier obsession with twin tails trying to protect twin tails and the world but mostly twintails.
3. The fight scenes well it is debatable the animation drops off at some point but you know I think they spent most their budget on this so I do recommend watching up to Drag Guildy then it just flops and flounders.
Side good points include cause they are always pluses for the comedy and just mash up anime.
- Horny mad scientist
- Masochist, Exhibitionist Student President
- A Tsundere who beats other women and not the MC
- A Chuunibyou Mom
- A loli-character wielding a flaming sword (most characters just get a sword)
The Sound is good, the plot could be equivalent to power rangers where it is just monster of the week, and there is fan service coming out by the buckets, it's a harem.
I think I hit most of the points but whatever, take it or leave it, to be honest I had no expectations going into this anime and I was surprised that it is solid and I enjoyed watching the antics of the enemies and the main character.read more
Ore, Twintails ni Narimasu is an anime that you'll either love or absolutely hate, it's about a boy in love with the twintails hairstyle and becoming a hero because of that love. I found myself enjoying this series quite much by not questioning the characters' logic too much and viewing this anime as more of a comedy rather than something serious, because there are many things that occur that don't make much sense in the real world.
I have to say that the story was quite generic up until episode 7, it consisted mainly of very cliche things. The characters just gained superpowers and rids the world of evil every day, there weren't any particularly interesting things in their fighting style either, just the same old scream out the name of the attack/power and wreck shop. After episode 7 the story suddenly takes a turn and becomes much more interesting.
I liked the artstyle in Ore, Twintails ni Narimasu quite a lot, the girls were all very cute and would always put a smile on my face. Unfortunately the quality of the art was a bit lacking. What I noticed was that the close ups become slobby in certain situations, either the facial structure was a bit weird or the eyes become very 'intriguing'. With that being said I want to clarify that the art quality was still far from being horrible and still pretty good despite its flaws.
The only song that I took a liking to is the opening song, I would often find myself not skipping the OP to listen to it another time and that's a good sign.
The background music in the anime however was nothing special and neglectable, it did set the mood well and complete it's duty.
This was the weak part of the anime, the characters were all quite flat and didn't develop that much aside from the main character Souji. Souji start off as someone who undeniably loves twintails until his doubt of his love kicked in, that's when things took a twist and when his character started to shine.
Comedy is one of my favorite genres and Ore, Twintails ni Narimasu was a great work of that genre. There were definitely some lame jokes that left me speechless but that's also what makes this anime so great. But again enjoyment lies on your own mind and there are a lot of people that would undoubtedly hate this anime to its core. But nevertheless you should give this anime a try and see for yourself!
After watching this anime I think I want to touch some twintails myself.read more
Hairstyles are very important to character design. Did you know they made an entire anime about how great twintails are? Why do anime fans like twintails so much and what, if anything, are the defining characteristics of these double-ponytailed ladies?
