Gonna Be the Twin-Tail!! is a comedic anime series that aired in Japan in 2014 and is currently available for streaming on FUNimation. The story follows Soji Mitsuka, a high school student who is obsessed with twin-tails (a hairstyle where both sides of a person's hair are tied up in tails). He believes that twin-tails provide a special source of power and that the Twin-Tails are the epitome of cute.

One day, Soji is approached by a strange girl named Thouars who tells him that she is a warrior from another world tasked with defending Earth from evil forces who want to conquer it. These villains are after the power of twin-tails which they believe can help them rule the universe. In order to fight against them, Thouars transforms Soji into a fighter who can also harness the power of twin-tails.

Soji, now using the name "Tail Red," teams up with Thouars and another twin-tail warrior named Erina Shindo (known as "Tail Blue") to fight off the evil forces and protect the twin-tails. Together, they form a team called Twirl and must face off against various enemies who seek to harness the power of twin-tails for their own nefarious purposes.

Throughout the series, Soji learns how to fight as Tail Red and gains confidence in his abilities. He also develops a deeper understanding of the importance of friendship and teamwork as he battles alongside Thouars and Erina. The show features a variety of comedic moments, utilizing typical anime tropes, as well as plenty of action-packed battles.

The voice acting in Gonna Be the Twin-Tail!! is exemplary, with the main cast consisting of Austin Tindle as Soji/Tail Red, Sarah Wiedenheft as Thouars, and Bryn Apprill as Erina/Tail Blue. Each actor perfectly captures the unique personalities of their characters, and their chemistry with each other is palpable even in the English dub.

The animation style of the show is bright and colorful, making use of bold palettes and whimsical character designs that make it a treat for the eyes. The many battle scenes are well choreographed and visually stunning, with each tail-twirling move adding to the excitement and fun of the show.

Overall, Gonna Be the Twin-Tail!! is a light-hearted and entertaining anime that is perfect for fans of the magical girl genre. The show doesn't take itself too seriously, but it's clear that the creators had a lot of fun with the concept of twin-tails and the various battle scenes. With a stellar voice cast and beautiful animation, Gonna Be the Twin-Tail!! is a series that any anime fan won't want to miss.
