J.C. Staff has brought us a magical girl series that has trouble distinguishing itself from other shows within said genre.
(Spoilers in this review)
I guess it’s refreshing to see a return to a more traditional magical girl setup with a optimistic protagonist (who shares a similar dream of being a hero like Yuna from Yuki Yuna) who actually does something. However, it’s very much a typical magical girl show and I can’t think of anytihing that can make it stand out.
I guess we will have to see if Twin Angel Break adheres to the old standard (think Sailor Moon or Card Captor Sakura) or if it’ll chase after Madoka or other similar subversions. Actual explanation remains to be delivered!
I found out afterwards that this show is a spin-off of sorts for Kaitou Tenshi Twin Angel, which aired in 2008. That explains the girls in the OP. Speaking of which, Kaitou Tenshi Twin Angel was originally a slots machine game, which is referenced in the OP.
