now bring me the fucking penguin drum.
Listen here you lowlife who will never amount to anything-
Close, but no.
>The penguindrum was all the love, trials and hardships shared by the siblings
>Kanba kept giving up more and more to save Hinamori until there was nothing left of him
>Shoma always carries burdens by himself so when Ringo used the fate transfer spell he paid the price for her
>Himari's transformation was actually a mix of Momoka and her desire to be a jpop idol
>Sanetoshi's bullshit was a giant analog for the 1995 sarin gas attack
At least that's what I got out of it.
Haven't watched it in ages though so I might be remembering some stuff wrong.
Where did you get cyclical timelines?
The child broiler is a metaphor for a place in which unwanted children are discarded...that might also be a literal place because of magic shenanigans.
Do they ever explain why the three unrelated children are a "family"?
It seems hard to imagine they can't keep a cat but the parents are ok dealing with two non-related children.
How come they never stated what the Penguindrum was and went as far as to imply it was the diary when it wasn't?
If the penguin hat was Momoka why was she so rude?
What disease did Himari even have?
What was the point of the medicine working one episode and then not working later? Why didn't the two brothers not cut their losses and just accept Himari's death?
Why did that hat come into existence in the first place, let alone posess Himari? Why did they keep warping to the penguin aquarium from seemingly out of nowhere?
Why was Kanba rejected by his father and why did he subsequently reject his real sister?
What's the purpose of the comical cartoon penguins, let alone the identity of the doctor and the two black bunnies?
How was Himari spontaneously able to access that tremendous library and access that information and why was the ghost doctor the librarian?
Finally why did both brothers agree to die for the sake of Himari? Why did Kanba (attempt to) murder so many people?
Because they were all taken in
Cats tear up furniture, children don't if you hit them hard enough
Mystery for the sake of it
Himari had headlice and it irritated her.
To show that they couldn't do exactly what you stated, to see how desperate they would get.
This part I can't remember
I thought it was some kind of deal to look after him.
Penguins are there to be cute and subversive, ya rly.
It wasn't just to die for Himari, it was to atone for everything that had gone on, Japan and the whole inherited sin bullshit. Sho was innocent.
Some of the answers are flippant, but I watched it a while back and some of it left my head pretty quickly.
Oh! The rabbits are the two shattered parts of the doctor's being.
the naming of the penguin drum really is just a red herring. But you can see Himari take something from Kanba in episode 1 (2 maybe) while in her penguin form.
The Penguins are literally there for juxtaposition while representing each main character.
Only the Nanami episodes.
>What's the purpose of the comical cartoon penguins, let alone the identity of the doctor and the two black bunnies?
The penguins were just sort of there? I got the idea that they were manifestations of Momoka's other half, since the Princess of the Crystal was only half of her. The black rabbits were Sanetoshi. When he and Momoka attacked each other, in the penultimate episode, Momoka split into the two penguin hats and Sanetoshi became two black rabbits. Because the two rabbits met each other again, Sanetoshi was able to manifest into reality once more, hence setting the plot into motion.
>Finally why did both brothers agree to die for the sake of Himari? Why did Kanba (attempt to) murder so many people?
Power of love, anon.
how did everyone understand the rabbits were sanetoshi? You only see him split apart briefly in the last episode. There must have been a visual cue hinting that they individually became those black bunnies.
Ah, well, Momoka used some spell on him and the poof, rabbits.
For some reason I expected the gif to trick me with
So were the Shouma and Kanda from the very end of the anime actually them, reborn as shotas, or was it meant to be symbolic, since the background got all screwy after they walked a bit, and the 3 penguins were following them?
You see them as children in the first episode walking past.
look at the very bottom two picture.
>that image quality
I think it's pretty safe to say they were reborn since it was clear the three penguins were interacting with each other, yes.
>Ringo and Himari engaging in /ss/ could very possibly become canon
Kanba was a solid badass.
