Mawaru Penguindrum 15

Mawaru Penguindrum

Finally, Momoka gets introduced! Didn’t expect her to be voiced by Aki Toyosaki though.

So it turns out that Momoka’s diary has a spell to switch fates although at the price of physical injury to the caster. Apparently that’s the Penguindrum. I guess if its that powerful, it’s not surprising everyone and their mom is looking for it.

Still, more and more questions just keep popping up in my head the more they explain/reveal things about the show. I certainly wonder what’s all this going to build up to…

Also, that showdown between Yuri and Masako was awesome while it lasted.

    well my guess is momoka didnt die , she just disappear due fate transfer which explain why her body could not being found in the few previous episode. but i am curious about what kind of ‘fate transfer’ that she made which cost her to disappear …
    -get a cut to extend rabbit life
    -get burn to set yuri free by changing statute tower into tokyo tower
    – get disapear for ..??

    i dunno about masako motif but i think she either wants kanba’s affection or same motif with sibling ;saving their younger sibling. as for yuri ,tabuki and pink hair dude ; i think they wants to resurrected momoka.

    Oh . Im pretty sure Momoka disappeared trying to save Tabuki’s life on the day of the Sarin Gas Attacks.

    Remember during that episode when Tabuki was like “Oh god, of all days for my alarm to go off late !!”

    Deal with it.

    Momoka sacrificed herself to save her not yet born sister since she has the ability to know the future where her not yet born sister will die if she won’t do something that results on costs her life. Yuri thought she’s the one to be blamed for Momoka’s fate.

    So Momoka just randomly burst into flames when she changed Yuri’s fate?
    Why am I reminded of Ringo in the OP…

    I really like the idea of Momoka dying to change the fate of her unborn sister though.

    Given how the major theme in Penguindrum always seems to come back to Fate vs. Destiny, my guess it’s that some fates cannot be avoided, and as such have to be accepted (Galactic Railroad references again!), but even so a person still has SOME measure of influencing their eventual destinies.

    Momoka is surprisingly cute ;o This episode was pretty good, I am actually somewhat relieved Ringo didn’t get raped this episode…
