|Yesterday, I finished Please Twins, having marathoned through all but the last two episodes the day before. I enjoyed it. It's not overly perverse with the situations that would come up with the main male, Maiku, suddenly living with two girls, who are drawn to him a lot more than a sister should be to a brother. It's not as creepy as one would think. The two girls don't fight for is affection much either, mainly trying to keep other girls (and guys) away from Maiku while keeping their own feelings restrained. |
You don't really see Maiku falling for the girls quite like they are faling for him. He acts more mature than they and treats them more sisterly while having the physical attractions occasionally, but it's not as much of a crush on either of the girls that the girls have on him, so it doesn't really feel like whichever one is the sister would have much of a romantic relationship with him like she would hope.
The supporting cast is a good mix of new and returning characters from Please Teacher, as the story takes place about a year from the beginning of Please Teacher, at the same school and Mizuho is the main male character's teacher. As such, she pops up a lot with plenty of lines. Kei, not so much. The extra last episode, the one after the actual last TV episode, does have a lot more Please Teacher characters returning, and Kei even has a couple of lines.
All in all, I liked it. With just being 13 episodes, you can watch it all in a day or two and be done with it, so if you didn't like it, you're not wasting much. Still though, I do prefer Please Teacher.
Now I really want to go back and watch Please Teacher.
