Screenshot of the Week 4: Mawaru Penguindrum

Mawaru Penguindum (輪るピングドラム) was one heck of a creative show with a great deal of symbolism. The art and music were both outstanding. The characters are all very diverse and throughout the show, they quickly grow on you. The main thing that probably captured my attention to the show was the title. I also remembered that I actually almost dropped the show. The first episode was mostly centered around a weak girl, Himari Takakura (高倉陽毬). So, I expected the whole show to be the same. The whole show was COMPLETELY DIFFERENT. Looking back at the show, I remembered how mentally straining it was. That’s why I like it so much, it makes you think. This also helped me realize that I really want penguin minions doing my bidding.  This week, we are featuring a screenshot of two of the main characters, Shouma Takakura (高倉晶馬) and Kanba Takakura (高倉 冠葉), from episode 2. Can you guess what they are watching?

Shouma Takakura (高倉晶馬) and Kanba Takakura (高倉 冠葉) are twins. Shouma is the innocent one who does work around the house like cooking, cleaning and taking care of Himari while Kanba is a lot more cold and serious. He mostly takes care of the family’s finance and cares deeply for Himari. Shouma is voiced by Kimura, Ryouhei (木村,良平) who is known for Kodaka Hasegawa (羽瀬川 小鷹) from Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai (僕は友達が少ない), Yuuki Asaba (浅羽 祐希) from Kimi to Boku.
