Mawaru Penguindrum 02

LOL CONTRAST. First episode goes “I don’t believe in fate.” then the next one starts with the opposite statement. Yeaaaaaaaaaaah.

This was also another curveball episode, starting off with the twins stalking someone and finding out that she’s a stalker herself. God damn, I always get reminded of the “chain of stalkers” episode of SZS whenever this happens.

The new character, Oginome Ringo, is also quite an interesting albeit intense character. At first, I had a pretty nice impression of her as a normal girl with normal dreams… but this show really takes all the normalcy it establishes and then smashes it. When I saw how deep in to crazy she was… hurrrrrrrrr.

Although, the real scene stealers this week are the penguins. God damn, just seeing them walk is so damn cute… sending them off to do infiltration missions and such was just so cheating lol. Now I wish I had one of them myself lolol.

The music is also pretty cool. I really liked the music that plays at the lingerie shop scene. Not forgetting the “those holes lead to the cosmos comment” ヽ( >∀<)ノ AHAHA AHAHA AHAHAHAHA. Oh man, Kanba, y u so naughty!

    Huh, surprised that there’s no comments here. Thought this show was more popular than that.

    So…they can’t see the penguins but they could feel them?

    This series is so interesting and the characters are really fresh and don’t follow typical anime character types to an extent, and the last scene with ringo under the house sent a chill down my spine. I can imagine her transferring to kanba and shouma’s school just to be closer to the teacher.

    I totally wanted a penguin after watching them too! They’re just so much fun to watch. Even when they fail at being helpful, they’re too adorable to not want to send on more missions.

    Just curious…did anyone notice the train news feed as well as the magazine that Himari and Penguin #3 were looking at? The news feed is definitely reminding me of the shadow girls from Utena…giving glimpses of what is getting ready to happen. But where the shadow girls stayed in the background, I’m wondering if the news feed girls will actually have a bigger part or not. I’m pretty sure it’s them being pictured in the ending credits and all.

    Final question…in the picture that Ringo took of the bird’s nest…the background showed a building with a giant penguin logo…foreshadowing, perhaps?

    Totally getting into this show! And very much looking forward to what will happen next! :D
