Recommendations

Basically if you've seen Utena and loved it, then Penguindrum is a must watch. Both shows are directed by Ikuhara Kunihiko, which means you'll expect to see similar themes and artistic flare.
Both feature young women blurring the gender line with sword fights.

Opening Theme

"Rinbu Revolution" by Masami Okui

Ending Theme

#1: "Truth" by Luca Yumi (eps 1-24)
#2: "バーチャルスター発生学 (Virtual Star Hasseigaku)" by Maki Kamiya (eps 25-38)
#3: "Rose & release" by Masami Okui (ep 39)
