What did you think of Mawaru Penguindrum?
>>
Will I like this if I liked Utena?
>>
I'm still confused about some stuff though.
Like who Momoka and Sanetoshi were, and how Ringo found out the spell.
And the part when Kanba and Shouma were in the boxes was strange too.
>>
Didn't like any of the characters or the story or the message.
>>
It is an amazing show. It's a fun ride and quite entertaining. Ringo a best. It's filled with lots of symbolism that at points is just there to look deep. 4.5/5
>>
i'm just a rock n roll man. I wouldn't know.

such as?
>>
>>123083966

Only good for doujins afterwards.

Any good ones?
>>
The whole terrorism bullshit was forced and unnecessary, they went full yandere.. I lost interest around ep 16, but it didn't feel right to drop it so I forced myself to finish.. it gets so cringy and painful to watch.

Apparently, there are many ShoumaxRingo non-h doujins but they're all untranslated.
>>
liked all of the characters the story and message.

>>123084473

>non-h doujins

What is the point.
>>
kanba did nothing wrong
>>
>>123084216
Momoka is Rigno's magical sister who holds the spelll to change fate. Sanetoshi is a terrorist that tried to destroy everything, but Momoka half stopped him at the cost of her life. Now he's a ghost who wants to ruin everyone's life again. kind of
>>
>>123084477
Was there really a message? All I got from this series is that terrorism is fine if it's for your imouto.
>>
>>123084494
Why is there a magical sister?
Is Sanetoshi the leader? What does that make Kanba and Shouma's father? Why Antarctica? What are the penguins?
>>
>>123083966
not by any means perfect, but loved it.
>>
>>123084684
gonna need a run down on what constitutes perfect cos this series was by far in the way the closest I've seen
>>
>>123084371
every shot of an apple, the teddy bear, that large ass statue building, random ass gyroscopes, the two bunny kids, the chisels, ping pong balls, etc. These are just things I saw in one episode alone so over like 26 episodes there's a bunch of objects put there just to look deep when their meaning is pretty superficial. They do have some meaning though, but the importance to these objects is way too high for what it's made to be.
>>
>>123084559
the message was to not be selfish and always expect others to love you but to show others love as well. That ending completely wrecked me goddamn

It was great. Been meaning to rewatch it since Yuri Kuma started. (I'm liking Bears too but I'm not nearly as invested in it as I was in MPD when it was airing.)
>>
>>123084765
Maybe some of those objects, but thhe significance of the apple was huge. Pretty much all those things you mentioned tied to the story of the man trying to cure his tree which was all being re-enacted by the family
>>
>>123084765
The apple was the single most powerful motif in the show for life - not just physical life, but meaning and purpose as well. Jesus christ man, opinion discarded.

The single most powerful thing in this show was my dick when that loli (can't even remember her fucking name) walked down the platforms stripping.

It's an excellent and ambitious work that a lot of people dislike because it disregards plot consistency and characterization to develop its themes.

He's really not. Even if you think he's a shit director, he's not a hack. Look at what that actually means.

I loved it and I'm actually on episode seventeen of Utena. Utena's fun so far but it doesn't compare to what I felt when I was first watching Penguindrum.

Initial D: First Stage.
>>
>>123085416
I think it would have been better if it was as long as Penguindrum.

It feels really compressed.
>>
>>123085416
I think it's more 'well thought out' in the sense that it didn't have the change in focus that Penguindrum did because of Fukushima, but for a smaller, less ambitious project it is still really well made and interesting. However, because of its shorter length, Ikuhara completely skipped out on trying to develop the cast and went for a straight abstract approach not unlike Adolescence Mokushiroku, so some people dislike it in that regard.
>>
>>123085348
>I liked the yuri rape part
Shouma ruined it. I was mad.

buwaha that BDSM was glorious.. but kinda disappointing after all.

I'm a fan of Murakami so I enjoyed all the references. I'd recommend anyone who enjoyed the show to try reading some of his works.

Yuri kuma is much better.

Watch Night on the Galactic Railroad. That's the story it was actually referencing, 999 just drew inspiration. Great movie.
>>
>>123085753
The show is clearly Murakami influenced, you notice it if you've read one of his works.
>>
>>123083966
A bit messy at times, flashbacks and cliff-hangers were overused, the Ringo arc is great a bit too long. But overall it was awesome.
>>
>>123083966
I liked it.

>>123085898

I hope you fags watched Night on the Galactic Railroad after watching Penguindrum.

Spotting all the imagery Penguindrum borrowed will see you lose the bowl control.

I won't argue the book but the film had an overblown amount of Christfag shit, some absolutely unbearable characters for the sake of pushing Christfag shit (that guardian for the 2 children) and some sketchy laying out of characters.

You faggots can be delusional sometimes so I have to throw the cold water over your head.

Those little routines with them on the train were always neat.

Out of all the points you try to argue this?

Did you actually watch it? Or did you fall asleep and wake up near the end? I wouldn't blame you for that, it was mostly boring although it had some interesting segments.
