Signal, a robot companion built for Nobuhiko, is attacked by Pulse, one the its creator's previous prototypes. Reprogrammed by Dr. Otoi's mysterious rival, Pulse is loaded down with weapons and sent on a mission by Otoi: steal the most recent robot technology, and obliterate anything that gets in his way.

This will be kinda tricky since there isn't much to say about this anime...

Main Character: Signal (Chibi Signal), Pulse and Nobuhiko Otoi

Overall , I would rate Twin Signal as 7...

Story-wise, it was silly and predictable but original enough for a 90s anime... it revolves around a powerful albeit somewhat defective robot named Signal... well, all the robots are defective here - Pulse is nearsighted, Elara is clumsy and Epsilon is a wreck...

The art had a Rayearth/Inuyasha/Ranma feel to it... think of it as Inuyasha having long limbs... it was cute (kinda dreary) but nothing really special...

This is the funniest OVA ever made.

I can't even's just the funniest thing I've ever seen in my life.

Go watch it, it's hilarious!

Recommendation: Skip it.

This is a show that's difficult to review because there is just so little substance to it. The plot is as barebones as it gets, the central conflict of Pulse and Signal fighting is simply because a bad guy programmed Pulse to do some villainy. No one has compelling motivations for anything they do and the characters are basic and unmemorable.

As far as redeeming qualities go, there are a few funny gags, mostly involving Elara the ditzy housekeeping robot, and it's got a comfortable and decently animated 90's vibe going. But mostly this just felt like a waste of time. ...
