Some 2ch speculators say the title is actually "Warping Drum", since that kanji also reads as "Wa", but we'll have to see what happens in following eps to determine if that's the case.
Ah, I was wondering what "mawaru" meant, when I tried plugging it into google translate I actually got "evil" but that must've been another kanji, thanks for the clarification!
