Penguindrum: Collection 1

 (TV) (2011)

Penguindrum: Collection 1 Blu-ray delivers stunning video and great audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

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 Shoma 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. It's a story of love, fate, life, death... and Penguins!

Penguindrum: Collection 1 Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Penguindrum Collection 1 is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Sentai Filmworks with an AVC encoded 1080i transfer in 1.78:1. This is a brilliantly colorful series, one that almost looks like a carnival explosion of bright hues, and that element pops magnificently in this high definition presentation. Line detail is exceptionally sharp and well defined and the distinctive character designs also look great. The frame is often quite "busy" and typically will include explanatory text that pops up for just a moment (including some kind of unusual "meta"-commentary on what's going on), so those who don't read extremely quickly may want to have their remotes handy so that they can press the pause button. As the series moves into the later episodes in this first arc, things get both more surreal as more tinged with a sort of proto science fiction aspect, and some very cool quasi 3D elements help make the visual appeal all the more alluring.


Penguindrum: Collection 1 Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Penguindrum Collection 1 features lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 mixes in both the original Japanese and in an English dub. Both mixes are relatively identical, though the Japanese is perhaps just slightly less boisterous in terms of the effects mix. The series probably wouldn't have been drastically improved with a surround mix, as a lot of the proceedings are relatively quiet and dialogue driven. Fidelity is excellent and prioritization is also top notch. The English voice cast is very good, handling the tonal modulations very well. Dynamic range isn't huge, but there are a few outbursts here and there that both tracks handle effortlessly.
