Imagine that you're working at an anime con, and most of your fellow volunteers pick up their volunteer packages and bugger off, never to be seen again. You spend 30 hours over the week end guarding the art room, confiscating idiots' cameras, and being chewed out for taking initiative to solve reputation-destroying problems which nobody else is stepping up to deal with. Exhausted, you finally are given one half hour in which to 'experience' the con, and head directly to the line for the overcrowded dealers' room. 15 minutes later you enter the room proper, and after another 10 minutes of rapidly
browsing the horrendously overpriced generic schlock you're growing desperate; you'll be damned if you're going to leave here empty handed. Then you spot it – a boxed set entitled 'Twin Angels'. You vaguely remember enjoying Kei and Yuri's antics in a graphic novel you once read, and make the purchase. Why did the dealer give you a creepy, sly look like that? Later that evening you drag yourself into your house, plop down in front of your computer, and put the first disc of your new acquisition into the DVD tray. Shortly thereafter you realize that the title you were thinking of was 'Dirty Pair', not 'Twin Angels'.
So, what is there to say about this, really? It's hentai. With gore. Concurrently. Don't expect a clever plot or much character development from a show which is essentially La Blue Girl with a hamstrung sense of humour. Depending on your proclivities, don't expect a lot of sexy, either; but hey, maybe you like snuff. All in all, the best thing I got out of Twin Angels was an amusing story to tell.
