Double your pleasure
Originality is scarce in the world of hentai and Twin Dolls isn't
exactly ground-breaking work, but part one of the series (that
continues as Twin Angels later) is one of my all-time favorites
because it's an amazingly well produced take on the martial arts/tentacle/demon
sex genre with one unique twist, the twin factor.
The heroines of the series, Mai and Ai are your typically gorgeous
and athletically nubile virginal anime babes, but the fact that
they are twins opens up so many possibilities that I'm surprised
that other videos haven't tried to steal the idea and turned it
into a sub-genre on to itself.
Think about this for a moment. Bedding a pair of twins simultaneously
is a very popular heterosexual male fantasy, but why is it so
popular? Probably because the tantalizing mix of multiple partners,
girl-on-girl action and incest makes for a potent powder keg of
societal taboos that most men wouldn't mind exploring.
Unfortunately, the series as a whole isn't so daring and fails
to capitalize and explore the possibilities that part one introduces.
The producers appear to be aware of the avenues afforded to them
by the characters and setting, but never gets past mild degrees
of titillation. Part two merely rehashes the formula from part
one and even goes so far as to reuse sex scenes frame-for-frame
from part one as a cost-cutting measure. The continuation of the
series, Twin Angels, pushes the twin sex theme a little further,
but still ultimately not far enough to make things thought provoking
(for more details, read my review of Twin Angels).
However unsatisfying the series is as a whole, I still hold part
one in high regard for its fine formulaic execution and thorough
realization of its world. The oni-type rape sex is extremely intense
and while the story and characters from a narrative stand point
aren't outstanding, it's still far superior than most hentai will
