Futakoi Alternative is a very loosely done {{Spinoff}} of the original ''{{Futakoi}}'', which uses the original character designs and concept of twins and virtually nothing else. The male protagonist is Futaba Rentarou, a 21-year-old {{Private Detective}} who spends most of his time waiting for a case. He's accompanied by his twin assistants 15-year-old Shirogane Sara and Shirogane Sojyu, whose mutual affection for him is completely open to a threesome.

{{Genre Shift}} occurs almost by the episode throughout this show, and it has been [[{{Your Mileage May Vary}} alternately praised and eviscerated]] for it. One more serious example takes Rentarou from trying to resolve conflicted feelings of romance and responsibility to racing a bio-hybrid squid down a highway on a friend's bike in two adjacent episodes. The show does have an overarching plot, dealing with a mutual (and surprisingly non-rival) sibling love triangle.
