| Another good anime from Kunihiko Ikuhara!
After recently been disappointed by Sarazanmai, I decided to watch Penguindrum and boy it was so much better! I liked the fact it was different in a way and not always in the same format like Sarazanmai was! I really liked the song "Rock Over Japan" which is so damn hard to find the original online except covers lol!!! Anyways I liked the fact this anime was so colourful and the penguins were literally adorable!

I was stunned to find out that Penguindrum was based on a real life sarin gas attack that happened in the mid 1990s and killed 13 people (1 died 14 years later). This event happened in Tokyo and this anime was basing it around the children who were involved in the incident. I was so sad and devastated to hear this.

I so recommend you to watch this anime, it's just so good! The English Dub actors were great too!
