The plot in Candy Boy is uncomplicated and revolves around twin sisters Kanade and Yukino and their high school life together. Unlike a lot of slice of life series, Candy Boy's episodes feel like they are all part of one large movie sized one as events flow seamlessly from each episode. Both sisters struggle to find time for each other and both get into college. Little happens in terms of dramatic romance, while there are very tender moments, those hoping for mushy love scenes and romantic kisses will likely be very disappointed. There doesn’t seem to be much in the way of social consequences from either classmates or family due to the sisters’ quite obvious relationship. In a way this is both disappointing and a relief. Though I thought it was the right choice because, for me, it kept my attention off of the creepy aspects of the show.
The characters are excellent in the series. This is helped by the fact that the cast is extremely small and focuses exclusively on only four characters. In fact I can really only remember a couple instances where people other than those four even spoke any dialogue. This was an excellent decision since the series is already short and doesn’t have time to build much depth in the characters. The sisters Kana, Yuki, and to some extent their younger sister Shi get the majority of the attention. Kana is the most interesting of the group and feels the most complete as a character. Most of the story elements flow through her and what she is thinking and feeling. You get a good feel for all of their personalities and their motivations, though it does feel like of the twins, Yuki gets a bit of the shaft in terms of depth. Sakuya is the comic relief and while she is in love with Kanade, she is never a serious love interest. There really isn’t any angst in terms of relationships which I found a bit refreshing. Kanade and Yukino love each other deeply and basically nothing can separate them.
The art and animation is truly fabulous. I loved the character designs and the settings and backgrounds were all wonderfully dawn and animated. There did seem to be a bit of inconsistency though, even though it was great looking sometimes characters didn’t always look the same throughout the show. The acting was very good and it featured a number of good musical pieces.
I enjoyed Candy Boy quite a lot. I would recommend it to anyone who is a fan of yuri or just wants to see a sweet slice of life series and is not bothered by the subject matter. While it may be a bit controversial to some audiences, I think it will appeal to most people.

Candy Boy is the sweet little story of two sisters living together in a dormitory and their usual lifestyle. But this slice of life anime comes with a twist: the two are romantically affected to each other. Although yuri incest is wincest, the fact stands that there are some that may be offended from the shoujo-ai and/or incest. If this combination works for you, then you'll have no problems enjoying this anime as much as I did.
As with many other anime in the slice of life genre, the story is given to us at the beginning of the anime, but not much of a change happens. Surely our yuri twins get closer and closer to each other in every single episode, and the romance aspect IS developed throughout the anime. We have a sweet relationship to begin with, and only a few possible characters that can affect the story one way or other. The whole imouto-san business, the twins' college entrance and dorm changing may be of interest to some, but keeping your expectations high in the story and expecting anything ground-breaking wouldn't be wise. That said, from the occasional change of moods and places, this straightforward story successfully gives what it promises.
As you go along the series, you will most probably find out that it contains many "still-pictures" that tend to be overly long and drawn out, but not that annoying; not since the art was never meant to be over the top. The character designs are cute enough to make the viewer like them instantenously. The clothes worn in the anime, which tend to bring up the "cute" aspect of the characters, may sometimes be fanservicey, but are presented as no big deal without much emphasis on them. Zettai Ryouiki fans will be delighted to see Yuki's knee-high socks completed with her mandatory skirt, much to our enjoyment.
Yet another area that a slice of life anime usually fails in is the BGM. Pretty much non-existant, or rather, unimportant is the BGM in slice of life anime, yet we would all be able to understand that something is wrong if BGM simply wasn't in the show or if it did not fit the mood at any given time. This can be compensated by the seiyuu, who play a big role in any speech-based anime, Candy Boy being one of those. None of the voices of any character is annoying or leaves us with a bored face for any reason whatsoever. A new sense of realizm was reached in the last episode as everybody started talking together about totally different things at the same time; a situation any viewer should be able to relate to.
Let me get this one thing straight; there are no boys in Candy Boy. None. If you can ever find one, please tell it to me so that I can start worshipping you. That said, do we even need boys in this anime? The two main characters, Kanade and Yukino, and the two supporting characters, Sakuya and Shizuku are interesting enough to fill out the whole anime. Although they are twins, Yuki fills in as the little sister with childish attitude role, and Kana acts more like a mature, older sister. Sakuya is there for the occasional comic relief that we all need sometimes, offered with her yuri tendancies for Kana. The imouto Shi-chan allows more of a story to develop, and is a blend between Yuki's cuteness and Kana's looks and personality. None of them being dull or plain annoying is yet another blessing.
The caution from before still holds true at this point; if you don't like yuri/shoujo-ai, then this series is not for you. I, as an avid fan of female relationships, knew fully well that I was going to enjoy this anime as much as I expected. The interactions between the twins are cute, and usually funny; those two adjectives are enough for me to be sold to an anime. The fact that Candy Boy isn't a straightforward ecchi/yuri but rather a cute love story only makes things better. As long as you have that bittersweet feeling of having completed the series after you're done with Candy Boy, then all is fine.
Candy Boy did (damn, where is my italics?) leave me with that bittersweet feeling of both accomplishment and sadness. There is not a single thing in the world that is perfect. As a rose comes with its thorns, Candy Boy may be coming with less-than-stellar story and easily-forgettable BGM, but that does not change the fact that we still like both of them. read more

Before we get into the review, I'd like to mention a major warning (that is fundamentally SPOILERish): This series has incestual vibes between fraternal twin sisters.
The additional episodes don't seem to push the sisterly relations between the two protagonists as much with the shift from calling Yukino "Yuki-nee" (in the ONA) to "Yuki-chan", but even with episode one you can see that the fluffy overtone is a clear continuation of the ONA.
Candy☆Boy is one of those series that rolls slice of life, comedy, and romance all into one, so plot is most likely going to be rather incidental. The art is a lot more detailed and the animation much smoother in the additional episodes compared to the ONA, while the seiyuu continue to deliver a solid performance. (You may recognise Sakuya's seiyuu as Katou Emiri, of Lucky☆Star fame as Kagami.)
The comedic moments are well-timed, and serve to enhance the series overall without taking the limelight away from the relationship dynamics.
Of course, it's still too early to say much in terms of character development at this time and there are many other points that haven't been expounded on yet, so I will update this when we are privy to more episodes.
I do think the series is coming along nicely, however, as the motivations of certain characters weren't made too clear in the ONA.
Episode two brings more of the same defining characteristics of Candy☆Boy that makes it so lovable-- cute interactions between Kana and Yuki, with Sakuya keeping things light-hearted. A shot or two reminiscient of fanservice cropped up, so that might be this series' attempt to draw (and maintain) the attention of its targeted demographic audience.
*Will be integrated into the rest of the review at a later date when generalisations are possible. read more

It is exactly as the synopsis says, twin sisters are in love with each other - it is an incestual relationship... but hang on is it? This is the real kicker. Their relationship is more like platonic love on steroids. If you're hoping for some Yuri action, passionate kissing etc. then you can forget all about that because these sisters are so sweet and innocent that they could possibly melt boulders and cause volcanic eruptions. They hold hands all the time, stare into each other, talk about their feet and stuff like that. After a few episodes, rainbows will randomly start to appear in your room, you will begin to fart out leprechauns and have visions of a galloping unicorn. Seriously though, this series is very innocent and the sisters never do anything sexual. The only way we can tell for sure that they're in love is through their dialogue, which is so sweet that I nearly came down with a bad case of diabetes. However, all of that made the series more believable and if there ever were twin sisters in love somewhere out there in the real world... they'd probably behave like this.
As for the characters in this show, there are only four. Kanade & Yukino (twin sisters), Shizuku and Sakuya. Shizuku is the younger sister of Kanade & Yukino while Sakuya is there to provide comic relief and nonchalantly hit on Kanade. These four characters will interact with each other on a regular basis and further reinforce the already impregnable relationship between Kanade and Yukino. All other characters in this series are only there to fill in empty spaces; they don't posses names and are mostly mute. However that is a brilliant move on the part of the makers as this is a very short anime and focusing on the main cast provides the viewer with a consistent experience.
The art here is truly amazing. I don't like using the word 'amazing' because it is quite possibly the most overused word in the English language. However, when it comes to this series I can use it with honesty. The animation is staggering. The twins are flawless in their design and whenever they hold hands you can see that it's the work of professional and talented artists. If you're reading this guys, well done. I nearly had a stroke the first time I saw them holding hands.
The sound is also very good. The soundtrack fits in with the series, the ending is heartwarming and the voice acting... oh boy. I'm a rookie when it comes to Japanese. I can count and only say a few words without sounding like an idiot but even I can tell that the voice actresses did a good job here. It is authentic to the core. In all the animes I've watched I'd say this anime here has got the best voice actresses.
All in all, a very good anime. Relaxing, stress relieving. An innocent tale of two girls in love. I've never imagined that Yuri could be this entertaining. I admit I must have had the wrong impression of it. Or perhaps it's just this particular anime that's so soothing and enjoyable. Well either way, I'd recommend this to anyone who likes romance. A must-watch. read more

There isn't much of a story really. Just the life of these two sisters- Yukino and Kanade- and the challenges or events they go through. The rough plot seems to be the twins’ feelings for each other although if it hadn't been listed as yuri and incest I doubt anyone would be able to tell when watching the first couple of episodes. Saying that however, what I really liked about this anime was the gradual development that is put so subtly it makes it seem life-like and therefore grants the anime with a somewhat messy but passable story line.
It has very cute and appropriate animation that fits the story well. I don’t have any complaints about the character designs although sometimes the boobs seem to have grown considerable amounts one episode then revert the next. Overall it’s nicely done.
All the voice actors did incredible jobs for their characters with none of them sounding whiny or annoying. However the background music is unremarkable (so unremarkable I’m having trouble remembering it...) All in all it does what it’s suppose to and remains fitting for whatever certain scene.
This is a great part of the anime with all the characters being likeable and funny without seeming too unreal. Kana and Yuki’s relationship is a big influence on their personalities and it’s amusing to watch how their own personalities change around each other (let’s not forget to mention it’s also adorable). The supporting characters such as Shi and Sakuya are also pleasant to watch and add their own emotions to the anime. This show has a good variety of cute, realistic characters.
I enjoyed this anime a lot and didn’t feel my eyes wandering or staring at the clock like they do most animes. The somewhat subtle fan-service and sweet interactions between characters keep me entertained through each episode.
Candy☆Boy is a cheerful anime focusing on the sweet relationship of two sisters who obviously care deeply for me other. I like how this show blows of all gimmicks and clichés to display a range of pure and honest characters that can make you smile. A great show, I strongly recommend it to you.

Heres how this was pitched to me: a yuri romance involving twins. this is something which inspired perverse thoughts upon me in almost record setting time and now i feel terrible for that having now seen the entire thing. These girls just want to be together for the rest of their lives and damn it all if theyre siblings and it would count as incest(or in this unique case, "twincest") they just want to be together which in my book counts as the fucking definition of romance! some people are probably all like "oh this cant happen, theyre siblings, twins no less, how can some sick bastard come up with this stuff" well heres my response to that: if you truly love someone from the bottom of your heart, no matter who it is, you should pursue it and damn the consequenses to hell! it seems to me that some of the most forbidden romances (like this: homosexuality, incest, etc.) have the purest intentions and i dont think that anyone should be judged for who they love, and its because of that belief that i was a fan of this anime. read more

I am talking about character first because it is the biggest thing that bugged me about this series. Right away, I felt something wrong with this anime. At first I couldn't put my finger on it, but then I realized it was because the characters are flat as paper. Sure, they were animated pretty decently, but that doesn't matter when there is nothing memorable about any of them. They all seemed fairly genetic. Not to mention that their sister (Shi-chan) was kind of annoying.
I know that this was a fairly short series, so it didn't have time to develop a whole lot, but there was no trace of an actual story. Now, this normally wouldn't bug me, since I love pointless animes (Azumanga Daioh, etc), but the happenings of this anime were just awful. It says that the twins are in love, but are they? It seems like a fairly normal sister relationship, except for a few aspects. Their so called relationship doesn't go anywhere. I'm pretty sure normal sisters tell each other they love one another, so that's not anything special. Don't misunderstand me, though. It's not like I was in it just for yuri action and am upset because I didn't get to see any; I generally wanted their relationship to advance.
This was the only thing about this anime that I enjoyed. The animation was done well. As I mentioned before, the characters were designed well, plus the scenery and background images were decent too. Not much else to comment on.
Same as art, not much to comment about. It wasn't awful though, that is for sure.
This anime left a bad taste in my mouth. I'm not sure if I don't appreciate it because I've never watched a shoujo-ai anime before, but either way I didn't like it. Maybe if I rewatched this anime at a later date I would appreciate it for what it is, but as of right now I stand by my overall score. I really wanted to like this anime too, but no matter how hard I tried I couldn't get myself to enjoy it.
Overall I give this anime a 4/10. I'm probably just being a prude, so the majority of you reading this will probably enjoy this anime. read more

I really did enjoy the flow of the events and the back stories, and such.
It kind of blew my mind.... yes yes, incest... I like the way they portray it in here: not all that tortured, sort of in between the lines...
I think this is another case of "Pocky Shoujo ai"... (I claim the term)... a reference to Ga Rei Zero.. a sweet kiss, so what? I guess it is only the creator who know the true meaning, and speculation is left for the rest of us mortals...
I think the relationship was really interesting. Was it sexual love? Was it familial love? Was it platonic love? It made me think a lot what truly defines the relationship between humans and what we need from each other. (In fact I just watched this anime after reading "The God of Small Things" by Arundarthi Roy... so it got me by the rational and dramatic side.
I like the little sister, her conflicts, the whole moving from the country side to the city aspect of it...
All in all, it is was a great late night watch... and it is totally worth re watching and discussing.

Rather then reviewing episode 00 and EX01-02, I figured I'd review it as a whole. As the synopsis implies, this IS about twin sisters in love and just about nothing else.
In these 10 short ONA's, there isn't much of a story to build on but rather its a episodic adventure into the lives of twin sisters living in Tokyo and their daily activities.
To begin, the flow of this brief series is slow and subtle and most likely leave u with a "cute and fuzzy" feeling at the end of each and every episode. The story may lack a bit of realism, but who cares. Innocent love lacks realism at this day and age. Sure there may be no significant story, but it would be quite improbable to have a good in-depth story with short episodes.
In the end what Candy Boy lacks for story, makes up for in terms of lovable characters, their adorable personalities, and overall enjoyment you will get out of watching them.

Story; 8. It's fairly episodic, and at seven minutes an episode this is neither surprising nor bad. If you've seen a slice of life, you know what will happen; just on a much smaller scope. Picture the storyline of a single episode of Azumanga Daioh (If everyone including the gym teacher were lesbians) spanning an entire series; That's Candy Boy. And it works, more or less. The only plot point that failed hard for me was the little sister; Hell the what now? Get off my screen, annoying not-as-hot-as-your-incestuous-sisters loli. Go hang out with those mindless girls from K-On! or something.
Art; 8. Let's be honest here; people who watch yuri, at least to some reasonable extent, want to look at attractive girls that love other girls. How very unsurprising. That said, even series as stellar as Simoun can fall short as a yuri series by having poor or unfitting artwork. Even Strawberry Panic, the only other "pure" (absolutely 0% of weenie at any given time) yuri series, fell here on a number of occasions. That said, this is actually Candy Boy's biggest success point. Kana and Yuki are well drawn, and shockingly identifiable in the vast sea of doe-eyed, smiling anime girls that exist today. Kana has a very neat haircut, as well as two cool cartilage piercings. Yuki often wears suspenders that are left hanging, and just generally layers clothes to create a very "realistic" or "modern" stylistic look. I know this sounds silly, but these cartoon girls really are quite stylish; and when a large factor of your genre is how adorable your protagonists are, this counts quite a bit. Rest assured, the art is good, especially for the girls (and nothing else really matters anyways, stop pretending).
Sound; 8. There was one theme I could type all the do-do-dum's to and hope one reader (if there ever is a reader even) gets it but I'll spare you; Suffice to say, the music here was elevator-esque anime music, no doubt, but a couple of the themes were catchy enough to stick with you till you heard an actual song. And none of them reeked of casio keyboard basement nonsense; Boring and unsurprising themes? Yes, but at least they sound like someone with good technology made them.
Character; 8. Personally, I see a lot of fans who like Yuki over Kana, and perhaps I'm just not looking that hard (scratch that-I'm not looking at all. I've just happened to notice) but I really liked Kana. I'm sure half of it was that she, like myself is a struggling arts student dealing with poor lodgings and aggravating professors. But even aside of that, Kana had more of a mystique about her; Yuki was just cute. In a full series run however, I can very easily see Kana being more emotionally interesting. Her character model also appealed to me more, although I enjoyed both, and as aesthetic and small as it is, the cartilage piercings and quasi-hime cut as well as the darker skin really did it for me. She's probably the most attractive (I can't believe I'm typing this, but then again, being a user on MAL already shoots my cool factor straight to hell) anime female that I can think of. The only stupid charcter is their little sister. Hot lesbian twincest, hot lesbian stalker, more hot lesbian twincest, little sister feelings and drama,....Wait. What? She greatly interrupted my enjoyment of something I don't always get to enjoy with my anime; girls with boobs, and as a character was made of I-don't-care-bitch and TOWERING depression. The stalker was awesome though, in case I didn't underline that previously. Three feet tall but still not lolicon? That's a welcome first. Sign me up.
Enjoyment/Overall; 8. It's length makes Candy Boy very, very rewatchable. Every now and then if I just want to watch something quick and nice, or whenever I just want to replay the scene of Kana and Yuki sharing cake over and over and over (every single day, amirite?), the length is actually a very nice change of pace from the standard 12 to 26 episode series. As stated many times before, when I watch a purely yuri series about girls that love girls, I want to see pretty much nothing focused on but that; Hot girls frolicking about my screen with other hot girls, only to be interrupted by other hot girls stalking them. And Candy Boy delivers in spades; Or should I say, lacking all humor, class and wit, IN LESBIANS. And in incest. But that's only wrong when it isn't two hot sisters anyways. read more

There really isn't any negatives to this anime. There were parts that were either positive or remained neutral. Nothing really got me to say I disliked it. The story was very sweet in that it shows two sisters in love with each other. It's absolutely innocent and there's nothing dirty or perverted in this anime compared to other anime that contains incest. Not only is the love between these two twins sweet but the love they have for the little sister back home really warms up your soul. The characters were developed quite well as many of the questions I had were answered and it did not leave the viewer feeling empty. The anime also included a comedic relief in the form of a freshman girl and I find the comedy to be just right. It was neither too funny to ruin the touching mood nor was it too lame to really kill anything. It was also interesting to me to find out that the voice of the freshman girl was the voice of kyubey from Puella Magi Madoka Magica. Unfortunately, one thing I did dislike was that the episodes and the anime overall was much too short. I'm a slide-of-life, school life anime type of guy and I really wanted to know more about the future of these girls. I would have at least wanted to watch the anime till their graduation but at least the way the creators ended the anime left a warm, fuzzy feeling in me after watching it. Overall, I give it an 8 out of 10 because it was very innocent and sweet. Those are probably the two words I would use to describe this anime...innocent and sweet. Since the anime is short, I would not mind rewatching it as it did make me smile and for some reason, kind of provided a nostalgic feeling probably due to the countless moments one of the sisters reminisced about their past. read more

What makes Candy Boy so great is that the story is taken SERIOUSLY. It's not a half-assed attempt to flaunt the shojo-ai genre so teenage boys (or lesbians) can fap to it, it has the same ups and downs that you would find in any other romance anime that takes itself seriously. The story progresses like it would in real life, but seeing as how that's how a slice-of-life is supposed to go, it's not that shocking. The problems that Yuki and Kana face are simply interesting. It has a wide range of problems that couples face from the tiniest things, like what to get each other for a birthday present, to major things, like how will one afford collage and still be together with the other. It doesn't let the fact that Yuki and Kana are twins and of the same gender effect the progression of the plot, in fact, at times, it enhances it.
However, the story could have been a little better with character development. Sure, you only have a limited amount of time to develop the characters, and they do do a good job of that, but our information of the characters is limited. Sure, there are bonus episodes, which may help (I have yet to see them), but looking at just the series itself, there is some work left to be done.
Another thing, at times when Kana and Yuki are talking, the screen is focused off somewhere else, like the top bunk of their bed, or an extra-long shot of the scenery, which is quite distracting. It wouldn't be so bad, if it didn't happen as often as it did, and it's not entirely bad, but it's really distracting.
The characters themselves are just great. Yuki and Kana complement each other as the others opposite. Yuki is the more lightheaded one who is more joyful and does have her moments, where Kana is more smarter, but also a little more emotional at times. While these seem like complete opposite personalities, they're not as different as one might think, and the differences in the personalities are what make it more interesting. Sakuya is a very enjoyable character. She's just like an over the top villain you would find in an action anime, but applied to a romance anime. More or less, she's like the Ladd Russo of this show, where she's insane and over the top it's hard not to love the character. Shizu acts as a sort of counter active voice in Candy Boy. She shows that Kana and Yuki are not alone in their sisterhood, and would like to be almost as close to them as they are. She's an interesting character, and used for an interesting purpose.
The art is rather well crafted. It's not insanely flashy, or unique, but that's what makes it work. The anime itself is not flashy or exciting, but it's still enjoyable to a standard. Like so, the art itself is like that, and replicates how wonderful the show is. The music also works on this convention. It works on how it takes itself seriously and not over the top with its premise, and adapts to it, and as a result, it's very nice, very beautiful.
Overall: Candy Boy may have a premise that might not be taken as seriously as other romance animes, but it's worth watching because it takes itself more seriously than someone could imagine. It's light-hearted, interesting, and overall worth watching, 9/10 read more

First of all I’m not really into yuri stuff. The only anime I dig with such a thing is Revolutionary Girl Utena and only because it had artistic expression, mystery, character depth, swordfights, shadow theatre play, thorn roses, wtf ending, a movie version and a great place in anime history as a really revolutionary series. Candy Boy has none of the above.
Not that all shows need to be so epic in scale or complicated in thematics; some can be just good to ease the mind after a hard day. Aria for example is quite good at this. Some even find Gintama relaxing. Candy Boy is like that too, only it lasts way too little to make a permanent impression.
The pacing of the anime is by all means just fine. It has no major heights or lows and hardly any conflict. It has a steady feeling of fuzziness and silliness all the way, with a few very simplistic emotional issues thrown in for a few minutes just for the heck of it. It is otherwise the normal lives of two sisters who love each other. No kisses or fights and separations at all; just silly comedy and every day actions at school or at the dorm. And yes, it does the trick.
The question is, would it work without the yuri subtext? I sure sat to watch it because I was curious about that. If it wasn’t there I wouldn’t even bother. So it is a nasty bait of sorts who one may ask “Why in blazes did I fall for that?” It is basically guilty pleasure working here; no deny that the girls are drawn cute and sexy in a fuzzy calm setting. It works but again it’s basically carnal guilty pleasure; something Aria (or even Gintama) needed in order to work.
Another thing is how the characters are not really changing or maturing in any way. The few emotional problems last too little to really make a difference. They are otherwise very simplistic, with the lesbian friend being a silly comic relief otaku. It may work while watching but they are not memorable afterwards for the same reason.
All these wouldn’t work without proper production values and Candy Boy excels in this. There is a great deal of detail given to backgrounds and the characters are very well drawn all the time without any significant quality drop anywhere. My only qualm is that there isn’t that much motion in this series. All background crowd and even the main characters don’t move too much.
The soundtrack is actually a very good set of pop songs; very fitting to the mood of the series. Each episode features its own song too. Still, nothing worthy of remembering. The dialogues are also very likable, full of simple yet direct with emotions context. But boy, they are repeating the –chan honorific, like, a million times.
But after all that, this anime is simply not something memorable. The fuzzy feeling may stay with you but it is not something Aria didn’t achieve as well with far more duration, equally good production values, far greater duration and in no need of yuri baits. So not much value is to be found in this. read more

As the anime went on I still really enjoyed it. I felt the pain the third sister was feeling and I could totally understood being left out. I almost even cried. They showed the emotions really well. Every now and then they have comedy going on.
If you like or want to watch something really sweet once in a while or if you like yuri then I would definitely recommend this one. It doesn't even matter if you like yuri, if you just like romance and those kind of anime I would still recommend this since this anime was so sweet. It got me smiling like a big fool when watching it. I wished they would've made it longer than those 7 episodes and 1 OVA for me to be jealous. read more

i enjoyed watching this anime because of them.
but the relationship between the sisters is.. kind of unreal.
(from personal experience)
i love the thought of admiring your sister though,
instead of gettting annoyed at her (which is more realistic) lol
i loved watching this though, i though it was great,
its reallly cute

Be WARNED: This anime is about lesbians. Who are sisters, twins even. If you don't like that kinda stuff, then you best stay away from this anime...(Just sayin'...)
Story: Like the synopsis says, it's a love story between two sisters. But it's not ecchi or anything like that. It's the farthest thing from ecchi. It's innocent, cute, loving, sweet and meaningful. It just shows, at least to me, that love is important in anyone's life, and how we should all enjoy the beauty of love. (God, doesn't that sound cheesy?) Cheesiness aside, this anime is about relationships and the bonds between them.
Art: The art is very sweet, perfect for the story. The backgrounds and scenery were gorgeous as well.
Sound: Eh, the sound was okay. The music was okay, not really my taste, and for some reason, it didn't seem to fit the anime too well either. :/ But, meh, that's just my opinion.
Character: The characters went together very well, even though this anime was short. The character development went right along, and was pieced together well. (Sorry if I am repeating myself. ^^')
Enjoyment: I very much enjoyed this anime. It hit all the right spots with me and made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. It was a very cute anime, and I'm sure that I will re-watch it time and again.
Overall: I enjoyed it. It's ALMOST a masterpiece, though it could work on a few music additions. But, it's lovely, warm and brilliant. And I thoroughly enjoyed it. :) read more

This however, sucked. This is one of those anime shows you make when you've watched too much shoujo-ai and feel creative. Like; "let's do the same thing, but this time let's do it incest-style". Seriously if I had any interest in it and the possiblity arose I could make bank at doing screenplay and/or storyboard for anime. I mean let's face it, it is evident that it's not hard at all. Atleast at the standard of which most anime are.
Needless to say, this anime did not stir any sort nor form of feeling or reaction for me. I knew it would be fairly bad, but I had no idea that it was so incredibly generic and beyond stereotypical, it resided somewhere in the twilight zone. The only good thing about it was that it was short, which made this entire thing quite painless and incredibly forgettable. I am not going to lie, I can't really remember much of Candy Boy ( a very, very clever name by the way, note to self: you could also possibly make more money if you worked as a "title inventor" forthe anime industry), but that is probably for the best.
No meaningless comments trying to defend this worthless piece of, in want for a better word, entertainment please. read more

Even though the topic is a bit risque, the anime does a good job in not making it to perverted, though I do admit that they could have let it be more.
The only reservation I have about this anime is that it is so short.
I read the manga after watching this and realized that the anime doesn't follow the manga very well. It skips a lot of parts while adding more parts that aren't in the anime. Also, Kana-chan seems to be a totally different person in the manga. (I like the Kana-chan in the anime better) However, these difference don't take away the awesomeness of this anime. read more

It's kind of cliché and nothing special, but cute and innocent at the same time.
I don't think it's a story you would remember for a long time, but it's nice.
It's not the best I've seen, but it's VERY good.
The colours are just amazing..
The twins are cute, but I don't like Sakuya at all, I don't think Sakuya fits
this story in ANY way, she is just annoying and in my opinion, if Sakuya wasn't in this anime, it would have been way better.
This anime is innocent in my opinion, but Sakuya is like: 'Omfg, can iz touch your boobies?!' (comon, that just doesn't fit, or is it just me?)
It's a little bit too much..
It suits the anime perfectly.
I reccomend this anime to people that like love relationships
between girls. I love yuri/shoujo-ai, and I think this is one of my favourite's. It's just sweet, nuff said. read more
