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 am contemplating re watching it half marathon style tomorrow

You are wrong, you should die!

since I watched it when I was still green to anime, it was too much for me and I halfheartedly watched the first half
>>
>>120773501 Awesome, what a quick response.
>>
>tfw it didn't get the attention is should have because of 2011 competion

Why is yuri beat so bad compared to penguindrum and utena so far?

Not gonna lie, the story was overwhelming initially, but it was just too good. Kanba's my favorite character.
>>
>>120773432
Fuck yea!!!
>>
>>120773588
Yes, it deserves more cred.
>>
>>120773432
Did anybody actually get the ending though? And what's with that motif where "forgotten" kids are grind up.
>>
>>120773885
It seems like it was too deep for you at the time. Watch it with a clear head.

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.

>>120773646
Took me a week to get it fully.

>>120773624
Director messing up or it might pick up later, who knows.
>>
>>120773930
Yea man. It's not hipster, the story is very emotional, and communicates a deep message. PS. Who doesn't like penguins?
>>
>>120774015
The character design is also very good, fabulous max in fact.
>>
>>120774067
Yes, they are. Makes me jelly, I've got to crush them soon.

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.
>>
>>120773624
LOL, best thing I've seen.
>>
>>120774340
I know what you are talking about, but that is also what allows you to let go and just get taken for the ride.
>>
>>120774340
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.

Great way to put it.

>>120774450
My personal favorite is Kanba's theme. The one that sounds like cowboy music.
>>
>>120774340
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.
>>
>>120774195
The Triple H soundtrack is probably one of my favorite albums. It's just so good.

The whole sound direction in Penguindrum is absolutely 10/10.
