Idiot Twins Get Idiot Anime

...I dunno about this one...

Okay, I have no idea if the anime will be idiotic or not, but it made a nice headline, didn't it? Tetsu Adachi-- no relation to mangaka Mitsuru Adachi, as far as I can tell --started a little seinen comedy in '99 called Baka Kyoudai, or Idiot Siblings, about a pair of young twins who have..."heartwarming" adventures. And now it's going to be made into an anime! The new anime's title will be different from the manga's; the series will be called " Gokyoudai Monogatari" (Sibling Story).
Yes, I'm pretty sure that's supposed to be the sister.

Given the appearance of the manga, its publication in seinen anthology Young Magazine (see also Kaiji, Minamike, Ping Pong Club, etc), I doubt that they're going to be super-cute adventures. On the other hand, it's set to air Saturdays at 11:20am, a very kid-friendly time slot, so it can't be TOO grown-up.

...The little girl's hair weirds me out. I'm just gonna say that now.
