The way Mawaru Penguindrum ended, I cannot imagine Penguinbear being a sequel. Though, a spin-off is very likely. The line on the site reads, ”Find it out without mingling with the transparent storm,” hinting towards one.

I hope Penguinbear contains the same aspects that made Penguindrum so great. Mainly with its portrayal of fate, originality, and obviously the fucking penguins!!!

Penguinbear? Such a lovely name. I definitely want to watch it. I am a sucker for cute-named anime. If it's more Mawaru, that's even better! :D

Whelp, time to finish Penguindrum!

What "Adolescence" do you have?
Do you remember "Childhood"?
The irreplaceable one existed there.

The Point.
Your head.

You don't need to miss the point to have issues with how it was depicted and executed.


I'm not saying that. I'm referring to him trying to get the ending "fixed" while the most logical thing would be (whether you enjoyed or not Penguindrum's ending) either a spin off or a totally new story. There's no such thing as "fixing" shows, only bad cheap directors would do that.

although I really need to find some sort of summery of the whole story because being the air-head I am I still didn't get the whole thing but enjoyed it because of the
FABULOUS MAX~ scenes and cliff hangers

Mine too.

Penguindrum was awesome at the start, then in the middle it kinda went downhill but I liked the atmosphere and Ikuhara's style is definitely my cup of tea. So count me in!

Oh yes, I am ready for this. It doesn’t matter what it turns out to be, I’ll gladly watch it. Let’s get trolled by Ikuhara!
I think, then procrastinate.
Therefore, I am.

Augh I'm so excited, whatever it is! I doubt he'd do a full-on sequel - my guess would be more of a spinoff, but like others I'll be watching it regardless. 8D

Am I one of the few people hoping that this is a direct sequel to Penguindrum?

I really want it to be because I felt that the series ended with too many questions left unanswered and I would have preferred a more definite ShoumaXRingo, HimariXKanba ending, if it had been more similar to the Angel Beats ending I probably would have been more satisfied.

However I'm guessing if anything this is going to be a spin off series. But I can dream can't I? T.T

So we get to see penguins mixed with bears?
Ikuahara must have smoked again some strange weed, that's a really good news to me.

I'm thinking it will be a movie retelling the series, sort off like Adolescence of Utena.
Either that or a spin off, who knows, maybe it'll give a purpose to Mario in the story. What I do not want it to be is a sequel, the ending of the series was great and continuing the story would ruin it.

OH!!! It's absolutely Fabulous Max!!!! I so hoped there would be something like an OVA or a spin-off to the whole series, without all the serious topics Ikukhara have raised in it. You know, just something for fun.. and here we are! WOAH! Can't wait, really!

And that sentence on the website... The word "transparent" (透明) has been heavily used throughout the series and was translated as "invisible" in the subs. It was a synonym (allusion) to pretty much "death" in that crashing machine in the Child broiler (see flashbacks in episode 18 and episode 20 to remember). I think the "transparent storm" refers to the rain of those shivers of broken glass produced by that machine.


So it's like Ikuhara trolls with a message, "Find out more about Penguinbear without turning to trash and melting away!", i.e. don't you dare die before you check out my new work xDDDD

Confirmed to be a movie, meh. I'd always take a TV Series over a movie due to the 9 month wait for subs + shorter airing time.

This is a fake. Quoting tensorpudding:

C83 hadn't started when this was posted

The only link for the video is on a fake site of recent vintage that is a visual clone of the Japanese blog yaraon (but isn't related and the DNS records show it being registered to some other party) but is of spanish-speaking origin.

It happens to be a certain feast day, the Day of the Massacre of Innocents, which is equivalent to April Fools in Catholic Latin America.

The video contains dialogue that was confirmed to be taken from the original anime, and mostly reuses animation from the original anime, with small alterations.

I don't think the manga is comfirmed to be the Penguinbear project; they might be two different things. I really hope they are.

ANN is reporting that Ikuhara presented some footage from this new project. It will be called "Yuri Kuma Arashi" and has a bear that transforms into a girl.

By the way, this site has a full breakdown of the PV but it's in Japanese and Google Translate is sadly lacking.

I think he liked it. I know enough Japanese to know what "totemo subarashi" means. :)

Listen up, Neon. You lowlife that will never amount to anything.

But seriously, this is awesome news. Can't wait to see the PV or, better yet, get news on the release date/format.
