I normally don't post here but I may as well share the meme while it's fresh.



Pingu has received an anime ( http://www.crunchyroll.com/anime-news/2017/09/05-1/nhk-plans-new-pingu-anime ) and the first episode was true to the form of the original despite being in CG instead of claymation, a change in setting, and being made entirely in Japan instead of Europe. It is quickly replacing Cory in the House as the greatest meme anime, only Pingu in the City is a real Japanese animation and not just a joke. On MAL it is currently the top rated airing anime and the third highest rated anime on the site (with its currently low member count, not its actual rating, keeping it from taking #1).

The salt war from Your Name taking the top spot from FMA: Brotherhood last year pales in comparison with what is starting to go down now as the Japanese reboot of a European claymation children's cartoon is taking MAL by storm.

I've made a thread on MAL ( https://myanimelist.net/forum/?topicid=1671287&show=0 ) that contains more details and some of the first responses. This could very well become the west's Kemono Friends times 10 if things keep building up like this.

Pingu will save MAL from Gintama's conquest. It already kicked one Gintama out of the top 10 and another out of the top 15. All hail our new penguin overlord.

Also your name. is way better than FMA: Brotherhood, so I'm glad I didn't know about that "controversy".

This show used to creep me out as a kid.
When it talks it makes the weirdest faces.

It's a new Pingu show. It promises to put the same characters in a different setting (the city) and is being made by Polygon Pictures (Ajin, Knights of Sidonia, the upcoming Godzilla movie Gen Urobuchi is working on. Clearly the obvious choice for Pingu).
