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

"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.

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.

_Futakoi Alternative_ pairs two plots: a screwball action-comedy (a loser detective and his cute assistants saving the world from a Nazi-zaibatsu secret society of squid) and the sort of tragic dating-sim story Key made famous (two twins fall in love with a detective before a forced-marriage tears the trio apart); the abrupt switches between the parallel plots (crudely brought together at the end) account for its reputation of mood-swings.

I really wanted to like this show: it has claymation eyecatches and EDs! How can any anime which uses claymation be bad? And it quotes _His and Her Circumstances_, the last episodes heavily homages _End of Evangelion_ read more
