I had a sudden epiphany about Penguindrum. And I know. It's genius. Thank me later.

Spoilers for Mawaru Penguindrum. And for inane talk )


No. 6 novels are an amazing thing, they talk about social issues/inequalities like whoa, everyone has to read it (sadly, the anime doesn't stand a chance, mainly for its ending), etc., but now I just have to say that woman DID the research in a very different area:

Spoilers for Vol. 1 quotation )


Rec me science fiction books, people.

I'm too lazy to structure this post so I'm going to list my thoughts. I don't think will be re-watching this one, and it's a series that probably needs to be watched more than once to be fully understood so I may be kinda off:

Thoughts about all of the series. Spoilers, spoilers. )

Well, definitely it wasn't comparable to Utena in quality, and it did annoy me in more ways than one. But still. Worth discussing. When I can clear my mind.


Totally unrelated ETA: I'm unable to comment on any LJ entry whatsoever. I don't even know why.

But WHY isn't Mawaru Penguindrum finished?

Okay, granted. I have only watched the first episode, but OMG. The. The. IKUHARANESS. It kills me.

So I'm sad I'm going to agonize for episodes.

Episode 1 spoilers. Are Ikuhara. )

I'm so. So. Excited. While I ignore my uber urgent priorities.

Why did no one tell me this existed?

Also. Since LJ/DW knows it all; I have seen these books recommended in Amazon and other places, they made it sound like they were some post-capitalist, kind of progressive sc-f books. Both are written by white men though:

The Windup Girl.

And Seed.

Anyone heard of them/read them?
