Well, it seems we don't yet have a rapist... But we got something close.

I still need to remind myself that there isn't suppose to be a single normal human in this show. So I expect the teacher to have surprises of his own.

I drew the same conclusion after this episode. A normal (plain?) looking girl turning out to be the kind to--

There's probably a rule somewhere stating the more intricate the transformation sequence, the more it needs to be repeated

I spent about 20 minutes trying to imagine what possible functions all those buttons could possibly have for a toilet, and gave up before my head exploded.

While episode 2 wasn't as mind-blowing as the first one, I thought it was still fantastic. Easily the funniest anime I've watched all year.

There is - it's called the Utena rule.

It's not that unusual for fancy toilets in Japan to come with bidets. See wikipedia for details.

Was doubling over and laughing hard! This episode demonstrates how to combine mindscrew with some sense of humor, with the penguins for added comic relief.

Really?
I know she turned out to be weird, but that is about it. The sister herself's personality isn't exactly "abnormal" nor are the brothers.

Episode one wowed me more but episode two was more entertaining (how contradicting this may sound).
I particularly enjoyed the sibling interaction, Sho is an excellent straight man and the penguins are very amusing to watch (especially #2).

This ep was indeed hilarious and yet strangely serious at the same time. It kept me roped along the whole way, and I was starting to be lead into believing it was a light hearted affair and they were just mistaken in thinking Ringo had the Penguin Drum, but then that curveball ending came and through me completely out of the loop. I couldn't make out whether what was happening was serious or just comedic. I guess we have some snooping to do for little hints in the episode to point us towards the correct path. Anyway, I'm still confused as to wtf is going on lol. And like, it's a completely different confused than what Star Driver made me, which can just be attributed to bad/lazy writing in failing to properly explain the set up of the organizations in the story. Here, the confusion is just...genius.

Oh yeah, any respectable weeaboo should have long realized and known this, but just in case, Ringo=Apple in Japanese. And the character Ringo here is apparently a starch believer in fate, as opposed to Kanba and Shouma. We know that in Penguindrum the Apple represents the universe so...idk lol. Maybe it means in our universe fate is real and certain, and to try and go against it would make you not of this world, or un-human? Which goes in-line with Kanba's monologue in the end of last episode.

This.

Also it seems that whatever is keeping Himari alive is what the princess is taking out of Kanba. At least, that is the impression this episode gave me.

Hey, who hasn't uttered those immortal words: Are you trying to steal my octopus-shaped wieners?

This was a much sillier episode, but Ringo certainly took it to a very dark place at the very end - somewhat shocking tone shift there. I still think this is a fascinating mess more than a classic at this point, but it grabs your attention like few other shows can.

The only question isn't if the Princess is the enemy, but if there is an even worse enemy than her that the brothers had to worry about.

Because I once thought that Ringo might have a chance of being an ally. But now... I am not so sure.

i was thinking around similair lines. which makes me curious about himari's fate--they can't look for the penguindrum forever.

anyway, excellent second episode. the light-hearted-turned-dark episode reminds me a lot about utena, specifically the wakaba episodes

Who in the right mind want a stalker to be an ally.

And here I thought Akira Ishida character to be some kind of suspicious guy but instead we get to know that Ringo is a stalker. Props to Kanba because he has good taste on women lingerie, as expected from a siscon/pimp.

I don't really wanna have the whole debate about it (I have it enough in other places) but since it seems semi-relevant to the matter at hand, homosexuality occurs naturally in hundreds of species for survival purposes. Some animals are known to form homosexual couples to adopt abandoned children and some studies show that the more children of the same gender a woman has, the higher the chance of each successive one being homosexual, probably for population control. A species that just grows exponentially won't last long, so in that sense population control would be a "survival strategy".
