Wow, I love Mawaru no Penguin drum! This is an hilarious show! It goes in every direction and we don’t really understand anything important for those four episode, but this is certainly an excellent show. I’ve just watched those 3 episode one after the other and I can’t wait to watch the fifth one. So I’ll be brief, because I want to watch it before going to sleep. Ok, I’ll probably watch all the episodes that re already posted, but I can’t helped it, I really like it. Of all the new show, this is probably my favorite for the moment.
So, in the second episode, the “alien-penguin-shaped-hat-humanoide” asked the two brothers to find the penguin drum. She told them that a girl call Ringo will probably have it. So the two boy follow that girl (they even knew wich metro station looking for her…). They follow that girl all day, to find out that she is… A STALKER!!!! AHAHAHAHAHAH! this is really a great outcome. I never would have guess it would go this way. seriously, this is a great idea! And the one she is stalking is the home teacher of the two boys, Mr. Tabuki.
The third episode was about curry: eating curry with people we love, etc. The two boy are stalking the stalker girl when she goes to Tabuki house to give him curry on “curry day”. We don’t know anything more about the penguin drum, but nevermind, since the outcome here is also hilarious: Mr. Tabuki seems to already have a girlfriend, AHAH, and the poor Ringo, wich base everything on fate written in a diary, burn herself by exchanging the curry of Tabuki girlfriend with her own curry. She after that meet Himari and became friend with her.
The third episode show us to what extend Ringo is crazy. She have a meeting with Tabuki to observe birds (it’s Tabuki’s hobby, and I don’t think Ringo cares about bird at all…). But all the episode is filled with some kind of “Ringo’s world fantasy” where she dream of her perfect fate meeting with Tabuki… wich don’t turned out the way she wants… Really a fantastic episode!
So, like I previoulsy said, I really like that show. I wasn’t sure after seeing the first episode, but the more I watch, the more I love! I hope this will keep being that good. I like the bizarre colorful way of this anime. I didn’t want to watch it first (you know, an anime about penguin..), but I really don’t regret it now.
The story is a little sketchy, but since I’ve only watched 4 episode, this is okay if we don’t understand anything at all. The end of the fourth episode seems to get a darker side to story ( a young girl who know Kanba who is pushed in the escalator at Asakasa-Mitsuke metro-station). The Metro of Tokyo have a place in itself in this story and I like that fact. I’ve already been in Japan and thoses names of station makes me remember goood things. gosch, I love that show!
So, I give the second episode a 9/10, the third one a 8/10 and the hilarious fourth one a 9.5/10. It makes me laught so much!
