I enjoyed the recent anime series Mawaru Penguindrum. This is a map of the inter-character relationships, as best as I could make them out. Spoilers, naturally.

I did my best to duplicate the subway-map aesthetic that appeared in the series. The series (and the actual Tokyo Metro) uses the font Frutiger for its roman-character signage. Sadly, I don't have Frutiger but Futura seemed closer to it than Helvetica.

Corrections and suggestions welcome.

(Oh, sure, I'll do blank verse blog week. Why not?)
I just watched Katanagatari 4
(the episode for April/Uzuki).

How do I say anything about this without spoiling it?

This was an amazing episode, not just for the series but for TV in general. The resolution of many mysteries done in a completely sensible way, the optimism, the message about anyone's ability to make a difference, the visual grammar used beautifully - if only all "mysterious" shows were this well plotted. And we're only halfway through this 2-cour series, apparently.

It could be seen as kind of an otaku-wish-fulfillment moment but despite the fantastic nature of the show it feels realistic - I feel like the cool parts of this could actually happen.

I provided a post about the game hanafuda and its use in anime over at the MIT Anime Club's blog, miteiru! - check it out.
