[New July 2011] Mawaru Penguindrum

Japanese title: 輪るピングドラム
Genres: Drama / Supernatural / Comedy?
I've watched: 1 episode

Summary: Kanba and Shouma have a sister who is terminally ill. As she is approaching to the end of her life, a miracle happens, but not without cost.   

First impression score: 90 - Weird and Whacky

Personal comments: This ought to be the weirdest series of this season so far. It just so happens to be the whackiest one as well. I kind of get what's going on, but not really. I'd say this is definitely the most interesting series so far that I couldn't wait to see the next episode. Oh, as you could tell from the title, there are penguins in this anime, real penguins. And it has one of the weirdest transformation scenes I've ever seen, it kind of reminds those in Star Driver, except this is even whackier and more strange. One last word, I somehow think that ultimately, the story is going to end in tragedy. Just a gut feeling. We'll see if I'm right.
