Crap, thanks for letting me now! I usually always check the artists’ pages in order to make sure it’s okay but I must have forgotten to do it that time. I’ll delete the post immediately; thanks again!

Time for my first significant entry on this blog - a series of posts analyzing and explaining Mawaru Penguindrum’s literary references. Penguindrum is an infamously dense masterpiece of modern film directed by everyone’s favorite creator-troll Kunihiko Ikuhara. A complete list of all of the literary references I caught in Penguindrum:
- Underground (Haruki Murakami)
- Super-Frog Saves Tokyo (Haruki Murakami)
- Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World (Haruki Murakami)
- The Steadfast Tin Soldier (Hans Christian Anderson)
- Snow White (Hans Christian Anderson)
- The Bible
- The myth of Persephone
- Alice in Wonderland (Lewis Carroll)
- Night on the Galactic Railroad (Kenji Miyazawa)
There are probably more but that’s enough to write about for now. Some entries will be longer than others because some texts are much more central to what Penguindrum is trying to say than others. I expect that the entries on Underground and Night on the Galactic Railroad - the most important but least accessible of Penguindrum’s literary influences - will be the longest.
I’ve set up a tag (penguinlit) where they can be read in sequence.
Fabulous max~ /gabout
