Spawn of Frog — Eleven Days of Advent and One Day of Christmas #12

I could have easily done twelve posts all on Mawaru Penguindrum. But I controlled myself, and picked a single moment: when Ringo attempted to spawn frog eggs on Shouma’s back in order to make a love potion for Tabuki. This is probably the moment when Ringo’s insanity peaked.

This scene somehow manages to simultaneously be both utterly disgusting and utterly adorable; completely innocent and completely twisted. Just look at this shot, which I think captures the feeling perfectly:

Ringo’s smiling, happy face is cute and innocent. But she’s looking at that… thing… while gripping Shouma in a quite suggestive place. It’s this contrast which makes you think that something is so profoundly wrong.

I loved seeing how disturbed Shouma was, and Ringo’s reaction when the frog actually laid its eggs. And then Shouma’s penguin ate them!

Anyway, Merry Christmas! Here’s Ringo’s gift to you:

I hope you enjoyed this series of posts, I had fun writing them.

  1. Merry Christmas~

    Hopefully I’ll watch more current shows next year so I’ll be able to enjoy 12 days post series more.. [looks over at the upcoming anime season] forget i said that :)

    1. Yeah, next season isn’t looking too promising… Although I will be satisfied with Milky Holmes season two. Doesn’t seem like something you’d like though.

  2. Merry Christmas!! I hope you have a great one ;D

    LOL that damn frog scene so hilarious and I love Ringo’s expressions during that, but overall Shouma agreed to do that! I guess he gets a high five for going along with her insane plans….
