In this week's videocast Capsule Computers' anime expert, Luke Halliday, discusses why Mawaru Penguindrum is not as great as people like to think it is.
Penguindrum is awesome, I disagree with your assertion politely.
I gotta say, Penguindrum is nonsense.
your right alot of it is just stupid random stuff happening with no reason to it
LinkageAX is right. this show is awesome!!!!1
Sounds like drugs.
Drugs!? I'm calling the authority~!
penguindrum is the worst drug imaginable
LOL great episode .. i have to agree Penguindrum is crap.
It really is.
masterabbot you are crap
now now no need to get all upset here. its MY OPINION !!! u know everyone's got one.
I agree with you Trendor ;)
Penguindrum is the best anime of the year easily. Its not dumb it is mind blowing and changed anime forever
i see *rolls eyes*
I bet you do. BTW how far did you watch into this show? The only other show I`ve seen like it is Madoka Magica; in which the beginning is completely different from the end. It is not a show to be judges so early based on the randomness of penguins and the revival of a dead girl. The story is deep and each character has a connection along with a dark past. No one in this show is as they really seem. (Currently on episode 22)
I approve of this statement.
It's a good series. It's a bit too damn weird and got a lot of simbolysm (it's from the same people who made Utena), but it seems like in these days if it isn't a moeblob anime or a series that explains everything right from the start, people doesnt get it.
Exactly, many people expect to be spoon fed instantly or they will cry. They cry very loud too.
Mawaru Penguindrum isn't terrible, but the constant shifting around and symbolism just made me want to drop it. Seems like it is convoluted just for the sake of convolution.
Must it be like every other show in order for it to be understood? The reason why it isn`t seen as a easy to perceive show is because it is different. Going by this means that people expect simplicity in everything that is done, and that nothing should require complexity of any kind.
It's so-so. Interesting ending to that video by the way...
