There are things I have watched or read because they're considered classics. There those I got into because I've liked some other work by the same creator. Finally, there are those that somehow made a name for themselves in spite of the seeming absurdity of the concept. Mawara Penguindrum technically goes under all three, but mostly the last one. "Penguindrum", come on.

That said, google tells me that popular reception is mixed. Is it a brilliant work of astounding philosophical depth that conveys its ideas through a veil of symbolism and a visual product unmatched by anything ever, or is it a pretentious narrative turd which tries to mask its clich├ęs and incoherent plot by vomiting colour and J-pop all over the audience?

The internet jury is still out, but I loved it.

More on the anime that changed my life at least a tiny bit because yes, THAT GOOD )
