Interesting Blog Post About Anime Of The Day

Himari of Mawaru Penguindrum
At Bateszi Anime Blog, Celeste is looking at the anatomy of a gaze (which involves examining recent series Mawaru Penguindrum, so possible spoilers on that front):
I find it interesting in an anime all about belonging – particularly focusing on the family unit – these two are the distinct floaters. They have no attachments that we know of and, instead, make a business of making the attachments of others fit into their machinations. Boushi-san possesses Himari to have the Takakura brothers find the Penguindrum for her; without specifying where or what it is. Similarly, Sanetoshi approaches the Takakura siblings because they fit into whatever ‘game’ he’s trying not to lose; the fact that they’re siblings seems to be of importance, as he goes through the drawn-out process of asking for payment before administering the medicine.
Note: posts also makes a reference to the AMC television series Mad Men. Certainly didn't expect a MM reference on an anime blog!
