As someone who has finished reading the original comic version, I think the animation studio did a pretty good job of the animated version. Not too much of the plot and characters were changed compared to a lot of other Chinese shows. The story is interesting and different, with cool and funny twin brothers being the main characters who are solving mysteries. It was nice to watch as the story is unique. There could be some improvements but it's pretty decent in my opinion. I'd recommend for others to give it a go too if they are interested in genres like supernatural and mystery.

This anime, called Twin spirit Detectives in english, caught my attention for a very simple reason: The main Characters' appereance resembled one of an anime I really enjoyed, and thus my interest was piqued

It was worth it.

I can give this anime an overall score of 8/10.

This series did a good job of giving a solid plot without any of it's other components taking away from it.
While following the story of our two twin main characters, you will be confused, you will be interested and you will most likely be a detective yourself.

The story revolves around two brothers born as identical twins and following read more

The plot was interesting at first, with everything supernatural having a natural explanation somehow, but quickly leaves the original plot behind in favor of increasingly paranormal and strange events that just didn't make sense. In the end, it was all because of some doctor who had found the physical manifestation of the "human spirit" as a small, insect shaped piece of tissue in read more

Let's start off with saying I was really tempted to give these series a 10.

"Is there any evidence to prove your existence?"
It was something that was briefly mentioned earlier in the series, yet it wraps up the feeling I get from this series. Saying a series is confusing, can be positive and negative, as it can point out to a badly written plot or something with a lot of surprises. In the case of Shuangsheng Lingtan, I'm talking about the last one of course. I just couldn't predict where the series was going. It feels really refreshing, yet not too complicated.
But first let's wrap read more
