Plot: Once you make a decision, does the universe conspire to make it happen? Is destiny a matter of chance, a matter of choice or the complex outcome of thousands of warring strands of fate?

All twins Kanba and Shouma know is that when their terminally ill sister Himari collapses at the aquarium, her death is somehow temporarily reversed by the penguin hat that she had asked for. It’s a provisional resurrection, however, and it comes at a price: to keep Himari alive they need to find the mysterious Penguin Drum.

In order to do that, they must first find the links to a complex interlocking chain of riddles that has wrapped around their entire existence, and unravel the knots that tie them to mystifying diary and a baffling string of strangers and semi-acquaintances who all have their own secrets, agendas and “survival strategies.” And in order for Himari to live, someone else’s chosen destiny will have to change. From the creator of Revolutionary Girl Utena comes a story of love, fate, life, death – and Penguins.


Although it will be DVD Only Manga Entertainment UK, in conjunction with Kaze UK, will be releasing Penguin Drum – Collection 1 into the UK on the 6th May 2013, with the second collection expecting to be released later in the year.

    You can access the episodes by using the search feature when the wrong region screen shows and then selecting the right title (3 or 4 depending on the disc), and you can change the language and subtitles while the episodes are playing so you’ll have a choice of sub or dub (I can verify this as I own this title and have a Region B only BD player).

      Oh, and just to add, as far as I can tell all the video content on the disc except for the menus can be accessed this way, so if, for instance, you want to see the trailers that are included, you can watch those as well.
