The 10th anniversary website for director Kunihiko Ikuhara’s Mawaru Penguindrum anime has announced that the Re:cycle of Penguindrum compilation film project will have two parts, both of which will open in 2022.
The “Re:cycle of TV series” initiative is streaming one episode a week from the original television anime series on YouTube, starting with the first episode on July 7, 2021. July 7th is the 10th anniversary of the anime’s television premiere.
The film project will re-edit all 24 episodes of the television anime, but also add new sequences.
Ikuhara is directing the project, and Lily Hoshino is credited for the original character designs. Brains Base is also credited for the original television version’s production, while Lapin Track is producing the film version.
