The same events that heralded the first crisis are beginning to reappear. Balmung, who has become a system operator, is concerned that Twilight is returning. When Aura appears to give the new 'Kite' his data drain bracelet and dangerous creatures begin to appear in beginner's dungeons we know that once again The World needs saving. Shugo and Rena bring a lighter and more human touch to the story though which seems to make it all the better.
The differences from the manga series are subtle, but significant. In the TV series, the twins have been separated in their parents divorce, and the relationship between them is a primary focus for the story. The World is the only place they can meet. Several of the internal relationships are rearranged as well. Shugo is a bit more inept as a fighter, some episodic details are left out, and new characters are introduced to smooth the way. But the over all story is the same.
It's difficult to compare manga and TV series, since the media are so different in what they can allow. The TV Series flows much better than the manga, and the characters come across as a bit older (in behavior) than they do in the comic. All of the changes are favorable, and I found myself enjoying the lighthearted touch of the TV series much more than I expected to.Read more ›
The characters from the series are so loveable too! From Shugo's goofy , tooth-missing smile to Reina's "Oni-chan" to what's-her-name's rare item obsession, its great. Anyhoo, watch the anime in its orginal language with the English subtitle, you'll get a much better experience. Japanese voice actors are superb, unlike some dubbing artists ;)
Enjoy! And this series rock!
While it is a very cute and fun little series, involving more animation and action then SIGN, TWILIGHT doesn't have the kind of deep, emotional story of its predecessors. TWILIGHT is a 12 episode series with a beginning, middle and end, and in some ways mirrors the video games. Within the episodes, you will see Balmung, Sanjuro and Mistral but none of the SIGN characters. It's cute! It is fun. It isn't great. While some light hearted sexual interest is encountered, the oddest element is a kind of incest implied again and again between the brother and sister as Kite gets nervously arroused over Black Rose's design. The animation is a little soggy, but it doesn't kill the idea of the series - cuteness.
The characters themselves behave differently, with very little time for - or interest in - the introspection that was the focus of the original. The protagonists Shugo and Rena, twin siblings in real life, seem like typical bubbly anime teens, neither silent nor brooding like Tsukasa, Mimiru, or Subaru often were. Shugo's clumsiness, "sister complex", and overall libido are indistinguishable from most teen boys populating anime. But of course things are not as they appear on the surface, and there are the usual expected threats to the stability of The World. The "real" world outside the games is also depicted more here than in SIGN; but there somehow seems less division between the two.Read more ›

The Charactors and story have potential but rent it first. If you can't watch it, it doesn't count for much. The discs don't play on all machines, some problem in the coding. Read morePublished on July 22, 2004 by NORTON C. BROWNE
