Summer 2011 update – Mawaru Penguindrum
June 26, 2011
I previously posted my picks for the upcoming season, didn’t mention Mawaru Penguindrum, which has some interesting things going for it. The reason I didn’t point it out was that there is very little info available about the story or even the genre. Despite this, I made a mental note to check out the first episode because it has some cool creative talent involved, from production company Brains Base, to writer Kunihiko Ikuhara (I happen to be a fan of Revolutionary Girl Utena), to the character designer of Otome Youkai Zakuro, Lily Hoshino. Despite this impressive crew, the early previews (1, 2, 3, 4) were completely opaque to me, revealing nothing. Then this happened:
Honestly, I still have no idea what this anime will be about, but I’m looking forward to finding out now more than ever.
