According to the official website, director Satoh Junichi's new OVA "Zetsumetsu Kigu Shoujo Amazing Twins" was announced to be released next year in 2014.

Catchphrase: The straightforward feelings and actions of the foolhardy girl will change the world!

Introduction of the protagonist: Todoroki Amane is a young girl who is straightforward but also unthinking. She will try her very best in everything and say, "I don't know how to answer you if you ask me whether this can be done. I just believe it can. If not, then nothing will get started!" She easily gets stuck in her thinking, but she can also get easily moved at something small and start crying.

So her sister is a spirit and I'm guessing is the source of her powers? That's pretty cool.
In the PV Amane seems to understand her only as a spirit she can see and talk to, and she treats her as her sister. It does not say if they are actually related in blood. The character description gives more hint about her sister's identity.

According to one of the character descriptions on ANN, her sister died during pregnancy (of her mother, I'm guessing)..
More precisely, Lilian and Amane were twins at her mother's pregnancy, but Lilian's body disappeared before Amane was born. In fact Lilian's spirit resides within Amane's body, so strictly Liliian did not actually "die".

And it is Lilian who has extremely high ISH power. Lilian can also move herself (as spirit) into a teddy bear and move around in teddy bear form (hmm? how come it sounds like a currently airing anime? lol) but if she wants to use ISH power she has to be inside Amane's body. And when Amane pushes her ISH power to high output, Lilian would even ceases to exist (the two becomes literally one). On the other hand, under certain circumstances, Lilian can actually show herself in human form too.


I would like to know how and why Lilian's body disappeared? Hopefully the anime will explain this.

How do you know that? I haven't seen a video of her, do you mean her character design is cute?

See a couple of posts above or this one to verify her cuteness.

This sounds pretty interesting, I'm looking forward to it.

Whoa is she some kind of super hero or was she preforming? Hmmm.

Naive heroine and weird plush thing... So, magical girl series?

Satoh Junichi is a great director, but his recent works got mixed opinions from me.

This one looks like it's gonna be up my alley, yes.

Indeed.

Aug 7, 2013 7:34 PM by Tengai

This looks interesting. I like most of Satoh's works

I'll be waiting for more info on this one. If it gets popular and more sales enough, it might get a tv series like Tamayura.

Still hoping he'll make a new Aria.
