She was however, miraculously saved by a spirit thriving in a penguin-shaped hat. In return for her extended life, the twins must search for an item known as the Penguin Drum with the aid of three penguins which are visible only to the siblings.

Still trying to decide whether this or usagi drop is more deserving of the "show of the season" title. :awesome:

True. Both are incredibly awesome, yet in totally different ways.

Surprisingly they were kinda cute and amusing this episode. xD

Ok.
When Ringo somehow got out of that hole and socked one in Penguin!Himari's face,
awesome. xD :up:

I was really hoping something like that would happen soon.

This show just kicked things up a notch.
Spoiler :
I think that the chick with the black penguin may be Momoka (ringo's "supposedly" dead sister)

Oh and I just realized that Momoka and Ringo are both named after fruit. Ringo = apple and Momo = peach

I loved how the argument scene between Ringo's parents was done by a kappa and a bear.
Spoiler :
...and then an eel appeared. Makes perfect sense. :ying:

I love this show more with every episode.

Ringo has some serious issues. Which makes it even more interesting when she makes Shouma realise he is, in fact, not much better...
Mawaru Penguindrum seriously needs more love around these parts.

Penguindrum episode 8 was crazy; this show is certainly not holding back on overstepping normal boundaries (with, ahem, 'Fabulous Max' pff).
But its still awesome.
Really, really awesome.

Really, really awesome.

after watching episode 9, I really hope that the other 2 members of Triple H get some more screen time.

Just finished episode 9.
That was a really trippy episode, but very cool.

Spoiler :
There is one thing that bugged me like the entire time though...
so, from the start we're led to believe that Himari met pinkie in the "library" while she was in her Comatose state.
Why then, was Penguin #3 marked as '#3'? Sho and Kanba didn't even know about the penguins until the hat brought her back to life, and yet there the penguin was, waddling around with a #3 painted on its back, with her following it supposedly way before she died.

The other thing is, maybe that was an added effect since it was a dream. Maybe similar events happened, but not exactly as the episode went...

Episode 12 of Penguin Drum really made me feel a numb sadness. I really didn't expect things to end like that.
Spoiler :
I really hope that Himari can get one more chance at life. She was such a nice character. But the disappearance of her penguin makes me fear the worst


I think that the next 12 episodes are gonna be AMAZING.
