Like penguins, destiny always marches forward.
This is a show about a family, their struggles, their triumphs, and their penguins.
If for whatever reason that does not immediately interest you, it is also directed/written by Kunihiko Ikuhara, who is famed for his involvement with Sailor Moon and Revolutionary Girl Utena. In only a few episodes, Ikuhara has already cast off his thematic shackles of magical girls, cars, and fencing for new and thrilling motifs such as magical ladies, trains, and tactical espionage action. And penguins : D Um, it's animated by Brain's Base, that does a lot of good things like Baccano, Spice and Wolf 2, and Shin Getter Robo stuff.
Okay, so the series focuses on the Takakura family. They inherit penguins and the brothers must embark on a quest to find the fabled penguindrum.. That's really the plot! There is not much more that can be said because even from the first episode things go crazy. I think it is a good crazy though so I made this thread because it is super exciting and entertaining and worthy of discussion.
The show has characters too!
Himari Takakura: She's the youngest member of the family and her brothers dote on her it's adorable. She owes a great debt to a penguin hat.
Shouma Takakura: He is good at cooking and cleaning and taking orders.
Kanba Takakura: He is the action taker and order giver. Roguish charm is aided by possible unscrupulousness. Roguish charm not actually necessary to woo ladies since I mean, rose backdrop.
Ringo Oginome: Mostly just appears to be a typical high school girl who loves shopping and food and boys. But she has a tendency to get carried away with bizarre fantasies, which leads to all manners of antics and adventure.
Keiju Tabuki: Kanba and Shouma's teacher. He is a lame guy with glasses but he is in the opening sequence and has lines whatever : (
Yuri Tokikago: She is blonde which means she has lots of money and is super popular. Wears inferior hats.
