Japanese Title: あかねさす少女
October 2018. The girls living in a certain city do a certain ritual. The girls are the ‘Crystal Radio Research Group’. This group is a school circle that Asuka Tsuchimiya has founded with her high school friends. The ritual was only an urban legend. But when certain conditions accidentally overlap a game very suddenly gets serious.
The Girl in Twilight takes a tried recipe and wraps it around a sci-fi concept that’s refreshing to see when executed right and tiring when it’s a tangling mess: parallel universes. The premise is simple: the protagonist, Asuka, and her school friends are trying to replicate a ritual she read about online. According to the ritual if the group utters a certain set of prayers at exactly 4:44 while Asuka has a certain frequency set on her cassette player radio, they will be transferred to another world. As ridiculous as that sounds in real life, remember that this is an anime; they actually make it to another world and meet a girl that looks a little too similar to Asuka. I’m sure you already know where this is going.
The Girl in Twilight has a few things that will play into its favor: transformation sequences(the Asukas transform using the power of their cassette player), an only female cast and an aloof protagonist, decent action scenes, and sexy fan-service. All these point to a certain audience of which I’m not a part of; yet, I’m going to give the second episode a chance and see where this goes.
