TwinBee PARADISE (ツインビーパラダイス TsuinBī PARADAISU?) was a radio program broadcast on Cultural Broadcasting from October 10th, 1993 to March 30th, 1997. It was a radio drama based on Konami's TwinBee shoot'em up video game series.

OverviewEdit

The third of all the three series that conformed TwinBee PARADISE ended on March 30th, 1997. The main theme song "HOPE" —played across the three series— was written by Konami Kukeiha Club. The first half of the show was a hear/talk corner by Mariko Kouda (Madoka's voice actress), and the second half was the radio drama itself.

Because of the changes in both the setting and characters, it is often mistakenly though that the voices in Pop'n TwinBee and Detana!! TwinBee also originated from this production.

Characters designed by Shuzilow.HA —which originally appeared in Detana!! TwinBee— show up in this production. Prior to this work, the names for these particular characters had not yet been set, but for the radio drama it was necessary to distinguish the aircrafts' names from the pilots' names, so names such as Light and Pastel were decided and set at the same time the broadcast was being developed. Games based on this setting such as TwinBee Yahho! and TwinBee RPG were announced after.

Because at the time Konami had the impression that shooting games were a mainstay among arcade game manufacturers, they planned to make Pastel into a national idol boom and sell WinBee as a virtual doll in order to bring in the interest of more consumers. After the company decided to take this direction, Konami's media-mixing strategy was followed by the subsequent work Tokimeki Memorial, which showed further development.

The first series is also the directing debut of Otakki Sasaki, who later went on to become a central founding figure in the world of aniraji ("aniradio").
