Twilight Q is an interesting albeit largely forgotten OVA produced back in 1987. Originally, it was supposed to be a showcase for young talents in the industry; alas, only 2 episodes were made before the project was abandoned due to low sales, and the anime ultimately sunk into oblivion. Well, I guess it's high time to do the show some justice and bring it back to the surface.

As the title clearly suggests, the OVA is a sort of Twilight Zone anthology, which means the episodes don't bear any connection plotwise, yet they have similar mysterious atmosphere and employ the same mix of genres that may read more

Twilight Q is an old OVA from the late 80s. It has two parts, each one from a different studio. The first being from Ajia-do, the same studio we have to thank for Shuumatsu no Izetta. The second part was brought to us by Studio Deen, the studio behind Gravitation, The law of Ueki & Kore wa Zombie desu ka. I'm sure they're ashamed over that last one so let's not hold it against them. Let's look at this 1987 work and see how each studio did.


Twilight Q follows the format of a sci-fi anthology show like the Twilight Zone or Outer Limits. Which read more

Two visions on animation and the paranormal.


What I liked most about this is its naturalness; strange things happen, but everything is told without resorting to the formulas of this type of stories. The colors and the animation are beautiful, the ambiance too, and despite playing with multiple historical moments, the aesthetics of the 80's is always preserved; it doesn't play at any time to guess what the future will be like, or how the past was.

Very good, calm, beautiful, with a great soundtrack and a fantastic capture of the summer atmosphere, of vacations, adolescence, with a sun and a wind that you seem to feel. read more
