Mawaru Penguindrum 09

Mawaru Penguindrum

Whoa, that Sanetoshi fella sure is FABULOUS. And this was quite the mindfuck of an episode. Suddenly Himari backstory and new characters revealed (well, properly introduced technically).

Not quite sure to make of all this, but at least the show is back on a much more decent direction. Ringo is seriously creeping people out.

    Himari got to quit school due to staying in hospital almost nonstop. The girls have continued attempt to become stars without her, and possibly were angry for Himari “abandoning” them.
    Finally some answers (where did came the penguins from!) and tons of more questions!
    Also, symbolism abounds! And that feminine librarian… The hidden library of human memories, express lift to the mysterious places and more…Utena legacy indeed…
    One question – can somebody decipher teh 7 social sins inscribed on the statue before the library entrance?
    I’ve got a feeling they might be as relevant to the story as inscriptions from the Faust in Madoka…

    Has Utena officially become a man? Or did Akio die his hair pink? :P

    I’m bothered that all the books are about frogs saving Tokyo and what not… Shouldn’t it be penguins instead?

    Sanetoshi and his super secret library annex sure is FABULOUS MAX.

    Seven Social Sins.

    1: Wealth without work
    2: Pleasure without conscience
    3: Knowledge without character
    4: Commerce without morality
    5: Science without humanity
    6: Politics without principles
    7: Worship without sacrifice

    It’s a quote from Gandhi.

    @Azure

    Super Frog Saves Tokyo is a Murakami Haruki short story:

    @atua Yea I know, I just thought that for the sake of punery it’d make more sense in context if the books were of a Super Penguin instead.

    I just noticed something else too, whatever happened to that skunk in the earlier episodes?
