Summer 2011 Showcase
Twin Angel

Jul 1st 2011

Introduction

In 2006 the Twin Angel girls Haruka and Aoi were created as slot machine characters - back then cute slot machine characters were not all that popular, but in no time the girls became popular with both slot machine fans and anime fans alike, redefining the genre of 'moe slot machines'.

In 2009 a slot machine known as "Twin Angel 2" was released which introduced a new girl to the series named Kurumi. It also created some opposition for the girls by adding the powerful Black Trader as well as a rival for the girls known as Twin Phantom. The slot machine created more fans of the series, both for it's characters and storyline. An OVA "Twin Angel" was released on in 2008.

And now 2011…
The Twin Angel are set to become a full TV anime production!

Story

Haruka Minazuki and Aoi Kannazuki are two students at St.Cherine academy. Haruka is always filled with bubbly energy while Aoi is more mature and a top student in all her classes - but despite their differences the two are the best of friends.
The two girls look like any other girls attending the academy, but the truth is they are hiding a little secret that they can't let anybody know about...

During the day they really are just students at St.Cherine academy, but they become the 'Twin Angel', and fight against the evils of the town!

The lovely Angels are back, and it's time for them to get ready for some action!
