Anime News Network asked Gio & Yasha to write an article about Utena, Empty Movement, and they totally called us superfans, omg. Think of it as a belated Valentine's to Utena, its fandom, and the excellent friendships we've made along the way. 20 Years of Utena Fandom with the Ultimate Superfans!!!

Penguinbear

Just, look at this.  Chu...

Either there's going to be more Mawaru Penguindrum related content or Ikuhara is a massive troll. It's hard to tell and it certainly doesn't help that I don't understand the Japanese.

Re: Penguinbear

I can make out the words "transparent" and "arashi" on that line under the penguin face . . . . is there no link towards further pages?

Re: Penguinbear

I'm not sure what this could be either, but I do recall the original Penguindrum website looking much like that when it first went up. Hmm.

Re: Penguinbear

emot-aaa

Could it be the Mawaru-Penguindrum sequel:  Mawaru-Penguinbear?!

MomokaInWhateverIncarnation: To reunite with your loved ones, you must find the Penguinbear.
PostShowChildShouma:  What is a Penguinbear?
MomokaInWhateverIncarnation (being unnecessarily enigmatic like always):  It means #%$%%&*^(*^(*(*%^&$%^$#%#^$&**(*(&^%%$%$ which basically translate to some quality within you guys that has yet to be fine-tuned enough to be used as a world saving tool.
PostShowChildKanba:  That makes sense.

Re: Penguinbear

If the penguins are supposed to be the Tokyo subway mascot, I wonder which Japanese transit/big organization uses bear as mascot?

I'm excited for this, because I think it has tons of potential, but I'm also lolling at the title PenguinBear because it makes me think it's some animal out of the ATLAB/LoK canon emot-rofl

Re: Penguinbear

someone on that animelist thread just reminded everyone of how "penguinbear" could refer to those mecha-looking teddy bombs the Kiga group uses in MP.

Re: Penguinbear

I wonder what it will focus on? I'd like to see the young days of Kenzan and Chiemi, though I'm not sure what direction they'd go with that. Or maybe something that focuses on Mario so he'll finally have a use. emot-rofl

Those are called beardrums...leading to some disappointment when the Penguindrum wasn't a giant robot penguin.
Knowing Ikuhara, this is all probably going to be part of some elaborate joke.

Actually, those are Teddydrums. Maybe this project, whatever it is, will elaborate on their side of the symbolism in the series. As far as I can remember, they didn't obviously symbolize anything...

Re: Penguinbear

quoting naturalborncoward on  Chu...
Without mixing with that transparent storm, I’ll discover it

This line in the Penguinbear page seem to suggest that the concept of invisible people will again be present in this new anime.  Is the show really gonna be about Kanba and Shouma's Night of Galactic Railroad reference "this is where everything begins"?

Tegaki is a fanart site, so that's definitely not official art.

What's reported on that blog is making me wonder if Penguinbear is likely to be an alternate retelling a la Adolescence, whether it's in series form or movie form or whatever. I think it's way too early to call it at this stage, though; plus, the original Penguindrum already borrowed some things from Adolescence (Masako kissing Kanba looked like Anthy kissing Utena; Yuri's dad bore an uncomfortable resemblence to movie!Touga's dad; Sanetoshi turned out to be dead all along much like movie!Touga; and so on) so I'm not sure what new ground the creators would hope to cover with a retelling.

Considering how soon this is coming out, a retelling does seem kinda pointless.  Personally, I'd much prefer a well-done sequel (possibly with Himari and Masako and Ringo remembering more and more, thus drawing them all back into the penguindrum world, towards an ending as hinted by the group poster at the end of ep 24); if not that, a spin-off focusing on a lesser char. continuing on the same timeline will also be to my personal taste.  But, knowing Ikuhara and his blatant refusal to sequel SKU, a retelling do seem the most likely thing he'd do for MP regardless how much much new ground such a project could cover.

Re: Penguinbear

I don't think there will be any connections to Penguindrum at all. The similar icon is JUST A TRAP.
Once it finally premieres, Ikuhara's laughter will be heard for miles.

Penguinbear turning out to have nothing to do with either MP or SKU after all the chaos it caused => Ikuhara being recipient of sarin-filled teddydrums

Re: Penguinbear

! on the [gg] subs, Penguindrum Episode 23 has a penguinbear in a weird eye-catch style segment with a bunch of super-deformed characters. There's actually something that resembles a Pedobear in a penguin outfit.
