Gotta love these magical girl outfits <3
It’s finally time for a non dark magical girl series where nobody dies! At least from the trailers Kaitou Tenshi Twin Angel aka Twin Angel Break is purely going the comedic element, but this is probably another series that nobody is going to watch.
Classic Magical Girl
Bath time is always a great time.
Twin Angel is a old series that got its start back in 2011 from JC Staff followed by four different OVA series and it’s based off a manga that came out in 2007. So I guess it has a bit of a history and now we’re getting Twin Angel Break which is technically season two? If you saw episode three you would know it’s actually connected to the original thanks to the appearance of Haruka Minazuki, Aoi Kannazuki, Sumire’s brother Yuito Kisaragi and the non hedgehog form of Kurumi Hazuki voiced by Rie Kugimiya reprising the same character from 2011! I didn’t really know all of that but I get the feeling if you didn’t see the original it doesn’t matter? Twin Angel Break is fairly easy to follow without the need of being super complex.
Slime time though not so much…
So far it’s got all the makings of classic magical girl stuff we’ve come to expect complete with goofy mini bosses collecting some sort of energy from humans to revive possibly revive some super evil guy along with a talking mascot animal! This time we get a loud bitchy hedgehog Milk-chan who spends most of her time being angry? Seriously what is her freakin deal? Just kidding I know she has her mind set on saving the previous twin angels so she needs Sumire Kisaragi and Meguru Amatsuki to hurry up and get stronger in order to save her past team.
Rie Kugimiya playing another mascot? Seems she only gets these kinds of roles lately…
Speaking of Sumire and Meguru I liked that they didn’t get along at the start, but this “I rather work alone” thing always comes up in a lot of magical girl shows. I know Precure has used that type of storyline for past characters before and we saw it in the first season of Fate/kaleid liner Prisma☆Illya with Miyu wanting to work alone and going back to the original days of Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha with Fate fighting Nanoha instead of helping. Now that isn’t a bad thing I think it works wonders for the characters because the payoff is getting to see how they eventually become friends after agreeing to work together.That said wow it only took roughly three episodes for Sumire and Meguru to become friends, but hey it helped that the dog they found sorta forced the two of them to spend a lot of time together and build that friendship or was it the baths they took together? Who knows.
Extra magical girls
Its important to stretch before transforming!
Yay more baths!
Spoilers the blonde is a cross-dressing boy.
Sumire is super protective of her brother.
Nice drawing skills!
Happy hedgehogs are da best~
These three episodes of Twin Angel Break weren’t so bad, so far I’m invested in seeing more episodes of Sumire and Meguru working together to save the previous twin angels and learning that this is sorta connected to the 2011 series is kinda cool I guess? Aside from that the production side of things is not that bad, all the characters have great designs and the magical girl transformation scenes are fun and the opening is very catchy. I’m also glad Twin Angel Break didn’t decide to be another dark magical girl series and instead went for a the classic magical girl type of story or would that kind of dark and sad story make this a bit more popular?
