Now, to be honest, I wasn't expecting much when I first laid my eyes on this one. Futakoi didn't impress me and even though I'd heard this was a complete remake with the only similarity being the characters I was far from convinced. However, it would only take the first episode to win me over.

My biggest problem with a lot of anime is that I have to force myself not to fast forward past a lot of scenes. Only a few animes I've seen can pride themselves with having me pay full attention to every scene, and Futakoi alternative is actually one of those! The read more

the first 4 episodes or so, are a bit confusing but after that you start getting the hang of the story. i liked this anime because its got a good amount of comedy, action and romance (*it centers around romance tho*). the story doesnt progress fast rather, it follows a monotonous synopsis and unlike naruto and other anime that has some random episodes that seem to come out of nowhere this one is really focused (w the exception of the squid i dont know why it had to be a squid lol) watching the anime Futakoi before watching this one might be a good idea.

"It'd be tiresome to explain it all logically, but, if I were to try and sum it up with one phrase, it's probably a story about love." -Rentarou Futaba

Futakoi Alternative...what I expected was a silly, light-weight, mindless action comedy. Let me tell you now, that is NOT a good description. Futakoi Alternative tries to be something much greater than that, and, in some ways, it succeeds. In other ways, it fails. Overall, though, I think Futakoi Alternative is a pretty darn good show.

Well... The original Futakoi was alright in some aspects, but this one was a lot better. It may have been a bit random and some may go 'wtf?' but it gets better as it progresses.

The storyline is about a boy/man/teen w/e called Futaba Rentarou who lives with the twins Sara and Sojyu in an apartment that looks like a bomb shelter. They undertake the wierdest missions in which they find things for clients. The story gets a 7 from me since i only understood half of what they were trying to achieve. The romance between the three gets well underway much later in the anime read more
