[Anime of the Week] Mawaru Penguindrum (7/31-8/6/2011)

So um... the Summer 2011 anime season has been well under way (most series are now at 4-5 episodes) and there are some interesting shows playing, one namely being the one I've chosen as AOW this time. Interesting fact is this anime is being directed by the same one as Utena. You can really tell when side views of the characters faces are shown, so keep an eye out all ye Utena fans who have been waiting for the directors next work to finally come out.

The story centers around three siblings, twins Kanba and Shouma, and the ill sister, Himari Takakura. Himari passes away after going out on a trip with her brothers. 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.
