Onegai Twins Episode 11

Onegai Twins

"I Want to Tell You I Love You"

Almost five minutes into the episode until our eleventh consecutive bath scene! You know, if they put them at the end of the episode, I might be able to maintain interest better, just with worrying about the streak.

Here's my theory about the show:

The twins are aliens. No, hear me out. Because you wouldn't really complain too much about incest if it was between aliens right? Beady eyes and claws and such. Who cares if they want to keep it in the family? This is the Onegai _____ world, after all. We do have aliens! Maybe Maiku has tentacles or something!

Without spoiling too much, let's just say that I am extremely skeptical that the show will play out with the things that were revealed in this episode. Give it another thirty minutes and the tables will be turned. The way this show was set up, I completely find it unbelievable that either of the girls will be shut out from Maiku's love. Could be I'm wrong, though, it's just my impression. I have to figure that Karen and Miina have equal followings, and as they share the spotlight as main characters, I don't see the show's creators giving the other the shaft.

So, getting to the last few minutes of the show, I hope that the backstory with Karen being a runner wasn't all just to make this part a little more acceptable...

Not a great episode, but for the first time in this entire series' run, I'm actually curious what happens next.
