Yes, Haoliners has made and released the 1st episode about 1 year ago, and I though they had dropped this anime.

Yoshitaka Amano with madhouse. Ok it's ptw.
from what I gather the pv only shows madhouse name for parody purposes, they aren't actually doing this (madhouse website doesn't have this on their work profile either) :P I hope they had permission, lest I miss out on this masterpiece on copyright issues :D

That is the dumbest synopsis I have ever read


seems like you havent read this synopsis yet.

"Twintails: the glory of all mankind—or at least that is what first-year high school student Souji Mitsuka believes. At school, Souji spends most of his time daydreaming and rating girls' twintails, even going as far as creating a club dedicated to the hairstyle. His obsession does not go unnoticed, however; when monsters from outer space attack Earth and claim the world's twintails for themselves, a strange woman named Twoearle enlists Souji to fight back using twintails of his own!"

Thats another great synopsis xD
