Just got around to watching the first episode of Futakoi. It looks as though its makers got together and said to each other, "Guys, guys, what's the scariest possible harem show we could make?" "Ooh, ooh, I know, let's have the guy not only have to choose between half a dozen beautiful girls, let's have him choose between half a dozen pairs of twins!" "GENIUS!"

That said, this was actually a pretty engaging little show. To their credit, they introduced an in-story reason for so many female twins showing up, and judging from the opening and ending credits, only ("only") two sets of twins look like they will seriously compete for the hero's affections. The protagonist is a nice enough kid, easily turned by a pretty face, but what boy that age isn't? And I have to like the guy because he's a stargazer and his dad is a professional astronomer. So I expect I'll be watching more of this one.
