Guess who’s back, back again? Pingu’s back, tell a friend…

I guess we should start by addressing the elephant in the room. There’s a lot less hype and discussion around this second season then there was the first. This is by no fault of Pingu, but rather the fact that he’s seen as a “dead meme” among the majority. The “Pingu is 10/10” trend was misunderstood as a ‘meme’ by many who didn’t actually bother to watch the show. Once it ran through the traditional lifecycle of a meme, Pingu faded from public interest, despite the show itself not dropping in quality at all.

*Some of the points made are based to season 01*

I like memes. In fact, one could say I am some sort of meme connoisseur, shitposter with endless stamina, collector of rare pepes, and in generally aware of all sorts of obscure coaxed snafu/moviescirclejerk epic. However, when I see one of the goofiest cartoons from my childhood rebooted and then turned into some sort of beyond childish and completely dull version of the original, I am not calling it the best thing evertz for the sake of lulz. Especially when it not-so-obviously is not it. --- I asked 3 natives if this if grammatically correct way read more

Although I have only seen some clips of the anime, what I have seen is simply beautiful. This sequel to the original Pingu clearly surpassed my expectations.

Story: Pingu in the city is a beautiful slice of life, giving a very in-depth analysis of moving from the point of view of a child.

Art: The show manages to faithfully replicate the art style of the beloved classic with CGI animation, showing that CGI in anime can look good

Sound: Noot?

Character: The main character, Pingu, is a very interesting character, the audience has a very easy time relating to the emotions he feels.

Enjoyment + Overall: A beautiful show, you read more

Review in brief:

Pingu in the City returned in 2018 with more jobs, a more focused direction, and overall more heart. By better utilizing the strengths of its own quirks without overly distancing itself from the old claymation series, Pingu in the City has become a solid comedy, a great slice-of-life, and a proper successor to the original Pingu series.

Review in full:

Inevitably this review will see comparisons to this anime's first season and my review of it. To summarize, the first season clearly took cues from the old claymation series but was too formulaic and rigid (both in writing and in production values) to take full read more

I feel like I've already put down enough paragraphs on what this show is back when I reviewed the first season, and to be honest, it was more of last year's hit, however, in honor of an honest series, another review is the least I can do to show my appreciation for a show that most people think of as a joke, but end up sleeping on a decent wholesome fest that doesn't get much recognition, if it doesn't have boobs it's not worth the watch, that's the phrase they live by, while agreeing as much as Dandy would himself, it's way too generic to read more
