Hmm if anything I'll say Shouma has more of the spotlight right now.. it's just that Kanba is more effective/confident.

No, Shoma is the perspective character, meaning we see things from his POV. But the spotlight is on Kanba, as he is, at the moment, more relevant to the plot.

I think the narrative is structured this way because the story is a mystery (as stated by Ikuhara himself) and Shoma's POV prevents us from learning Kanba's secrets: for example what exactly is happening in the those survival strategy meetings after Shoma is flushed out.

Right now Shoma's just Kanba's foil, and plot-wise, he's just doing whatever Kanba tells him to do. I can only hope he will have a more relevant role at some point.

I know right? The penguins add a certain special ingredient to the show for me I'm just lost as to what it is.

I'm in love with the soundtrack. Both OP and ED are splendid. Ending song reminds me so much of My Bloody Valentine's songs. As for the show, this is one of the quirkiest I've ever seen in a very lovable way.

Wow, I go away for a week, and this thread asplode. The new Madokathread?

I really enjoyed the second episode, though I was disappointed that they reused so much animation from the Survival Strategy sequence, especially so early in the episode.

- I'm glad I'm not the only one who caught the underwear-as-double-helix visual. So very, very Utena.
- I'm fascinated by the diary. Does it make whatever you write come true? Or does it simply have future events written in it? The diary appears in the OP, so I wonder if Ringo's transformation into a fireball is a spoiler? I doubt the diary is the penguin drum though. Why would they make it out to be such a big mystery, and then reveal it in episode 2?
- I hope you all like the Princess' outfit, because every cosplayer and their dog is going to be wearing it for the next 2-3 years.
- I can't get enough of the OP. I haven't heard many people say that, so I may be in the minority.
- The brothers as a double-act could carry the whole show. They have such great chemistry, even if Shouma is a bit of a wet dishrag.

There's a bit in Episode one where the brothers take their sister to the Aquariam. The music that plays during that moment is just great. Kinda reminds me of The Winner Is from Little Miss Sunshine. I must've watched that scene like a million times now thanks to that music.

Anyway episode 1 was just terrific in every way. Episode 2 wasn't quite as brilliant but still great too. Those invisible penguins sure are something. When Himari went into Penguin queen mode again, i was kinda hoping that it would eventually be revealed that Himari was faking the mind controlling and was just bossing them around for shits and giggles but the delinquent bit dashed my hopes. Anyway that stalker bit at the end was just pure lulz.

I love the opening as well. I watched it in repeat several times.

I can't wait to meet the other characters featured in the OP

Especially the pink haired character. I'm in love with his character design.
