How can people connect? By sticking things up each others’ asses.
Ikuhara’s back, and continues in the tradition from his previous shows. Great animation, and it does that thing Ikuhara is amazing at where it builds up your expectations through repetition and then inevitably subverts it in an unexpected way that blows your mind. It’s extraordinarily gay.
I suspect this show would have benefited from a little more time. Eleven episodes was short, and everything felt condensed. That is vastly preferable to not having enough material, of course.
I think my ranking for Ikuhara shows would have to be Penguindrum >>> Utena >>> Sarazanmai >>>>>>>>> Yurikuma.
