Sorry - I thought that the title of thread would be a pretty obvious spoiler indication (since it's impossible to explain the end without spoilers), but I added the spoiler tags anyways.

I'm almost done with the second part...

And so ends my plot summary! I hope this makes sense, and that I got the order of things right, as I am doing it all by memory! Onegai Twins has gotta be one of my favorite shows, just for the pure light-hearted fun of it all, but with just enough depth to make you care for the characters. I enjoyed it a lot, and had fun writing this summary.

In both series onegai twins and onegai teacher the president (forgot name) plays a big role and i believe she always knows what is going on with everyone.

No problem! I'm just glad that I'm not the only one who likes this show. It seems as though a lot of people around these boards didn't like it much, as it devitated a bit from Onegai Teacher. Not having seen Teacher yet, though, I really thought Twins was great! I'm also hoping for a third series (and hopefully I'll get to see the first season in the meantime. My poor wallet though!)

Hmm... I'm not sure... did you notice anything censored in Twins, by chance? If so, what sub were you watching? (I was watching AonE-Inf, and don't remember noticing anything that may have been censored in the sub, but who knows...)

Edit: As a total aside, I've been reading some reviews of this show, and I'm surprised at how many people considered this show to be extremely "ecchi", mostly because of the nudity. But, for some reason, I didn't really find it to be that "ecchi" at all, simply because there really was very little sexual about it at all. To me, it was like "oh, they're having a bath, so they're naked". Sure, it was fanservice, but I really didn't find it to be over-the-top at all, for some reason, mostly because of how down-to-earth those scenes were. I mean, I don't even think girls would find it offensive... a bit obsessive and over-used maybe, but it just didn't seem that perverted to me because of the way it was played. A lot of people also found it "ecchi" and taboo because of the "we might be family" side of the story... but once again, I didn't find it "naughty" or anything. If anything, I thought the story was more cute than anything else, and the slight (and I do say slight) ecchiness of it only made the show more fun. I guess I'm just trying to understand the criticisms that people have of this show, and having a hard time with it.

yeah i know what you mean if they think this is ecchi then they should watch hanaukyo maids. they would probably call that hentai.

OK. There's something i dont get. What about the supposedly leaked uncut photo of the 3 of them? I examined the file and it looked real. Was there a last minute change to the story?

Do you have an example of said uncut photo file? I'm confused! So there was some photo leaked on the web about Onegai Twins that showed... what?

Without knowing anything about this, my speculation would be... perhaps they leaked a photo to mislead people? (Like get people thinking they've got the ending all figured out, only to end the series an entirely different way?) As for the anime, it's pretty clear who is and who isn't related. (A lot of people seem to get messed up by the epilogue, though, where they talk about the childhood photo, but that doesn't change anything.)

Anyways, I need more info, because now I'm curious. Where can I find this leaked photo file?

They might be related... but then again they might also be strangers...

Ive also heard about a diary(the diary that Karen read in the neighbourhouse) is out on some website(might be fake). Maybe i read it on this forum... dont remember, anyway, does anyone know something about it?

Even in the end of the anime the statement still haunts me, because it put the whole series down the drain for me. I hope there is an OAV to clear everything up.

It was the same one the 3 of them had except this one was not cut at the right[or was it left=p] side of the picture. It showed another kid standing right there. I can't believe nobody remembers about this because everyone was making a big fuss about how everything was spoiled!

Odd, because in the anime they ended up saying that Karen was asleep for the photo, thus she was not "cut off". (Besides, I didn't even know or notice that the photo was cut off... Is there any evidence it was cut off in the anime?) Perhaps it was a fake, or published to deliberately mislead? I wasn't around these boards when all this happpened at first (when OT first came out), so that's why I'm so uninformed.

I've gotta admit, though, I'm genuinely baffled by the fact that so so many people (not just on these boards) were confused by the ending of Onegai Twins. The only thing they really didn't clarify was why all three of them knew each other as children, but the "who is and who isn't related" bit seemed crystal clear to me.

All this is, of course, unless the OVA comes out of the blue and totally messes the last episodes up by revealing that, "guess what, we're all actually related, after all"! I guess we can only wait and see...

So, just out of curiousity, was it the epilogue lines that led to the confusion for most people also? (Where they finally revealed about the photo?)
