Plot : Three siblings, twins Kanba and Shouma, and the in-and-out-of-the-hospital Himari who's in poor health, live together at the Takakura home. One day, when the siblings are out on a trip to the aquarium, Himari collapses. The doctors state that nothing can be done for her anymore, but then, a miracle occurs...
Our Review : The show's visual style is fantastic, and if nothing else it's a feast for the eyes. However, there's also a lot of substance here too. A twisting plot and a surreal sense of humor keep Mawaru Penguindrum from being a philosophical treatise, but even so it's a show with serious ambitions that are mostly fulfilled, and a series that deserves a lot of thought. It is incredibly unique and the type of convention-defying series that I desperately crave to see more of in anime. Its cathartic ending is a final reward on top of an experience I won’t be forgetting anytime soon.
