If he screws this up, there will be a ton of birds flying around.

Futakoi is a 2004 anime and visual novel series created by Mutsumi Sasaki. It tells the story of a boy named Nozomu Futami who goes back to his home town, moving in near a shrine. This shrine contains a stone, which, according to legend, turned two twin girls into birds. They chose to turn into birds because they were both in love with a man who would not pick one or the other. Soon Nozumu inherits the same problem, winding up with his own 12-girl, 6-sets-of-twins, harem.

In 2005, a 13 episode anime Spin-Off, and later a manga, titled Futakoi Alternative was made. While this series contains the same characters as the original, it has a different story line and continuity altogether.


  • Color-Coded Characters: Each set of twins have at least one change in coloring in their outfits so they can be told apart.
  • A Dog Ate My Homework: Nozomu has a similar problem with a goat constantly eating his homework, and no one believing him.
  • Love Dodecahedron: Nozomu, his 12-girl harem, their crushes/fanclub... It gets complicated.
  • No Good Deed Goes Unpunished: Nozumu. In the first episode, he tries helping the Sakurazaki sisters, only to get his ass kicked.
  • One-Word Title: "Futakoi" translates to "Twin Love", and its a show about a harem of sets of twins.
  • Themed Harem: Nozomu's harem is made up of six sets of twins.
