Mawaru Penguindrum is a masterpiece, one of the best I've seen in 5 years. The plot is mindblowing, so let's talk about that.
I accept this as fact.
It is nice to see positive responses to a Mawaru Penguindrum thread, too many people on /a/ say it is pretentious hipster shit and too many buy in to that.
Took me a week to get it fully.
Director messing up or it might pick up later, who knows.
Yukari hashimoto is a good composer and penguindrum squeeze her talent
Toradore use very bad a very good OST
My only gripe with Penguindrum and other Ikuhara anime is just the overall style, which is neither completely silly, nor serious, but in some realm I don't like that much. Otherwise it's quite fine and I'm letting my aesthetic preferences get the better of me.
I know what you mean, but this is exactly why I like it. What medium other than a good anime can deliver a story like this? In such a creative way, unrestricted by any conventions.
Hmm, interesting that you point that out as I found that to be my personal sweet spot when to comes to silly vs serious. A strong dynamic between the two beats a good serious or good comedy any day, at least for me.

Did any anons get the artbook when it came out? I've seen a couple on ebay I'm thinking of getting, I know the content because I already downloaded it, but wanted to know what the physical quality is like.
So just general shitposting then?
