I've alway sthought about pynchon as like, history plus. History+. it's like yeah you've got your history (yawn) but then he wakes you up because you listen to the style of his prose, to the rhythms, to the voice, his voice, and it's like... old papa pynchon is back baby bangin his drum, he'll keep you awake through it, he'll guide you through this snoozer by throwin in a few twists and turns, hes like a old papa readin you a bedtime history book but he throws in some cool shit to keep you awake. every time you get sleepy, he spells "says" in a different way, a wrong way, and all of a sudden your jolted awake and your like, holy shit, can he do that? he can.

Mawaru Penguindrum felt Pynchonesque when I watched it. Much more so than Eva, actually.

Both have heavy Kabbala motifs. Both incorporate themes of shady, metaphysical conspirators behind the scenes of everything which occurs on a political, historic, and spiritual scale. Both involve overt Freud and Jung motifs. 'Instrumentality' in Eva operates off the same notion as Entropy, a major theme in GR. There are many passages in GR which describe a 'collective conscious.'

Here's a snippet from GR describing a retractable metropolis ala Tokyo-3:
>Travel here gets complicated—a system of buildings that move, by right angles, along the grooves of the Raketen-Stadt’s street-grid. You can also raise or lower the building itself, a dozen floors per second, to desired heights or levels underground, like a submarine skipper with his periscope...

Here's a snippet describing a giant white woman coming out the Earth in Japan:
>At the instant it happened, the pale Virgin was rising in the east, head, shoulders, breasts, 17° 36' down to her maidenhead at the horizon. A few doomed Japanese knew of her as some Western deity. She loomed in the eastern sky gazing down at the city about to be sacrificed.

Here's a snippet describing strapping a youth in an odd full-body plastic suit hooking into a large tubular device:
>The two, boy and Rocket, concurrently designed. Its steel hindquarters bent so beautifully ... he fits well. They are mated to each other, Schwarzgerät and next higher assembly. His bare limbs in their metal bondage writhe among the fuel, oxidizer, live-steam lines, thrust frame, compressed air battery, exhaust elbow, decomposer, tanks, vents, valves ... part of the vaporized oxygen is routed through Gottfried's Imipolex shroud. In one of his ears, a tiny speaker has been surgically implanted. It shines like a pretty earring.
