SynopsisBased on a game by Princess Soft
The main character, Junna has a twin sister Senna. He is an ordinal student of an elite school. However, in the past, a traffic accident deprived him of his parents and his memory. Junna survived the accident, and he has lived only with his sister though he has been looked after by his relatives.
The life with Senna in the same high school is so pleasant that he can forget the severe past. Because he has been in the world where there is only Senna, his lives in this town, such as the beginning of a new life, new environments, and the meetings, are so refreshing.
However, he begins to recall the memories he lost in the accident. Though he enjoys happy and pleasant days, he is tossed by the past, the present, and the future. What is the truth hidden in his memory?

It's an ok-looking series with a neat premise. It's not that any of it is totally original, but it's done pretty well considering how short the series is, not to mention the short duration of each episode. I particularly like the opening theme. Not even in the top 10 in terms of my fav anime music, but it's worth at least one listen, even so.
I had a good part of the story figured out half way through, but there were some elements that caught me by surprise, so I wouldn't say it's totally predictable. The series could really use a re-writing and expansion, much like was done with Kanon with the remake Kanon (2006). There's some neat (albeit cliche) secondary characters that could have really been given some depth. As it is, only Junna, Senna, and Haruhi get any notable development. Even that's pretty shallow.
I guess the thing that really puts me off on my ability to really enjoy the story was the borderline-incestuous relationship between Junna and Senna. I understand the Japanese culture views siblings a bit differently than Americans do, but this was going a bit far, in my opinion. I'm just thankful this doesn't even get ecchi. I'd have had to stop watching otherwise. The final unfolding of the story makes everything a bit more clear, but it's still a bit disturbing. Perhaps I'm just not used to this kind of story, but still...there's a line...
Despite cringing at every cry of "Onii-chan!!!", I still managed to finish it. Again, I liked the story and think it's a great baseline for a good plot, but it needed more fleshing out and less "special sibling bonding". My advice: just try to follow the story and ignore the suggestiveness involved. Not easy, but it can be done. read more
