Mawaru Penguindrum

Okay, when I heard Ikuhara (Utena) directing + Hoshino Lily (BL author) doing character designs + cute... little... penguins? Doing odd jobs around the house? I didn't know what to expect, but somehow this is... EXACTLY what I would have expected.

SO IS THE FIRST EPISODE TOO EARLY TO BE EXCITED ABOUT THIS

B/C SRSLY THE ENTIRE EPISODE MY FACE WAS A CROSS BETWEEN "oO" and "8DDDD!!!" AND IF YOU KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT ME THEN YOU KNOW THAT THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT I LOOK FOR IN MY ENTERTAINMENT

TRYING NOT TO BE TOO EXCITED

...FAILING

OMG NEXT EPISODE WHERE

I find myself oddly curious.

That was my reaction on hearing about it. It turned out to be VERY much an Ikuhara show. (Also there were completely random small children walking by philosophizing about the symbolism of an apple; I'm hoping they're gonna be this show's version of the shadow theater girls from Utena. 8D)

I KNOW RIGHT

The transformation sequence at the end was just...I don't think 'psychedelic' does it justice. It looked like what I imagine those brain-plugs from the Matrix would feel like. Also, damn those penguins are cute. And they arrived frozen solid in a box.

And that music. And that ED. And that OP. And damn, Himari, you're so fucking cute. And the fluffy blue brother's friend was feeling him up WHILE talking to him about cute girls. And AHAHAHA OF COURSE THERE'S INCEST, I knew there would be, but this time Ikuhara leads with it right in the first episode. :D:

I was looking at the trailers, and lolling at how they seem to be for about 3 different anime. Here's two that are for a creepy, stylized mindfuck series! Here's two that are for a slow, bittersweet slice of life series! Here's one that's for a slapstick comedy! Etc.

The trailer that really got me had to be the one with Himari wrestling with her penguin over a fish. The others with the solemn voiceovers were all very well, but as soon as I saw the fish-wrestling, I knew this was going to be good.

Hahaha, it's going to be like the cows all over again, isn't it. (Also that woman looked a lot like Wakaba!)

Man, watch all the trailers on youtube in a row and those feelings will increase 10x. Plus added confusion about exactly what genre this show is supposed to be, anwyay. XD
