Excellent. I've been hoping he would get back into the industry for a full project.

I can't wait for this. This will either be the most awesome thing thing for me this year or the most absolutely disappointing thing ever, but we shall see. I've waiting long enough for him to return to anime. I hope it turns out to be f*^king awesome.

These revolutionary penguins are definitely going on my PTW list. It should make a nice contrast to Minori Scramble's moe penguins.

Al that remains to be seen is how trippy it is.

I don't like penguins but I loved Utena

Hopefully it will be good, unlike Star Driver which had the other members of the Utena team.
Ok™

But the penguin's gotta appear somewhere, and if it is another lesbian anime, it will be the mascot.

A mascot who says weird things like "We'll share all of my love and your sin." and "I'll tell you guys, who surely cannot become anybody.", in other words, another Kyuubey. Actually, those quotes sound more like things Dung Beetle from Bokurano would say, but whatever, you should get the idea.

I want to check this out just because of the captions on the website, if for no other reason. Sounds really cool.

First teasers are out.

They don't really show anything. Clearly keeping it a mystery

Here's hoping, Ikuhara-san can capture lighting in a bottle twice.

Translation:
Kanba: Has an active personality, his way of speaking seem a bit rough. Is good looking and popular with woman.

Shouma: In direct cotrast with Kanba, he has a calm personality, but he can get a bit flustered when it comes to Himari. Is a good cook.

Himari: Innocent in nature, she is something of an idol to her brothers. She has a weak body and is prone to hospitalization. But what are those strange clothes!?

On the left above the pictures:
One of the great mysteries of this series, three penguins that appeared in front of the siblings. On the image on the right, the one with tha band-aid is number 1, the nonchalant looking one is number 2, and the one with the ribbon is number 3. But they aren't simple penguins, and they can understand the things Shouma and the others say, though it seem other people can't see then... What part will these penguins take in this story!?
