Sakura Nankyoku. Daughter of Nankyoku MegaCorp. {{Otaku}} {{fangirl}}. StudentCouncilPresident. [[CloudCuckoolander Total nutcase]].

This is the world of ''Penguin Musume''♥''Heart''. Adapted from the ''Penguin Musume'' manga running in Champion Red, it's one of the few anime to air completely online. No episode exceeds 14 minutes (counting the OP and ED), and new episodes went at 12:00 Japan Time on Saturday at http://pen-musu.jp (sometimes earlier for users of NicoNicoDouga, a Japanese Youtube analogue) Each episode follows Sakura (alias "Penguin"), her TrueCompanions and [[GagSeries whatever comedy can fit into that short span of time]]. The web series ran for 22 episodes, all of them available at the previous link.

By the way, {{IOSYS}} of {{Touhou}} [[MemeticMutation fame]] (specifically ARM) composed one of the ending songs.

* CatGirl - Crossed with a IntoxicationEnsues, if by accident.
** And NotWhatItLooksLike when [[SchoolGirlLesbians Sakura]] and Sha Chi [[TheGlomp tackle Kujira]]. [[spoiler: Although Sakura seems to [[GirlsLove be going at it quite enthusiastically]].]]
* ChineseGirl - Sha Chi
* ClothesMakeTheSuperman - Sakura's "Cosplay Power".
* ClothingDamage
* CosplayOtakuGirl - Sakura. She loves dressing up in costume and once got her HeroicResolve back when she found out she could play dress up with Kujira if she won the match she was in.
** Often involving ExposedToTheElements.
* CuteMute - Maguro, Marie's {{meido}}. Also Saki-chan, who takes after her sister.
* DoItYourselfThemeTune
* EverythingsBetterWithPenguins - Kinda goes without saying, doesn't it?
** Includes [[spoiler: flying]] penguins.
* EvilMatriarch - [[spoiler: Sakura's mother. Dear Lord, Sakura's mother]].
* EvolvingCredits - The first seven episodes slowly change before stabilizing into something that's more of a BaitAndSwitchCredits.
* DancingTheme - One version of the OP, and a portion of the ED.
* FanDisservice - Sebastian [[spoiler: as a CatGirl wearing a bikini]].
** Lampshaded at one point by Kujira.
* FanService - Quite a bit of it. Most of the girls are remarkably well-endowed for high school students.
** FanServiceWithASmile - Episode 6.
* {{Fiction 500}} - Sakura's family as well as Marie's family.
* FlungClothing - Sakura ''attempts'' it and ends up nude in the classroom. A second attempt makes it end up right.
* GagDub - An official one, too. Including recasting the show as a wrestling show and a {{Sentai}} team, all while messing around with the first 11 episode's scenes in a style reminiscent of a FanVid.
* GagSeries
* {{Gainaxing}} - Obviously, most of the girls have never heard of a bra.
* GeniusDitz - Sakura is an expert on all things anime. Completely brain-dead in all else.
* [[PrehensileHair Hair Whip]]
* HandsomeLech - Sakura, as a rare female variety--as Saki finds out pretty soon.
* IdiosyncraticEpisodeNaming - Most episode names are [[ShoutOut references to other shows]].
** Even the drama CD can't escape from this, as its title is ''[[Anime/KingyoChuihou Iruka Chuuihou]]''
* IdiotHair - Sakura, again.
* LastEpisodeNewCharacter - Sakura apparently has [[spoiler:a sister, also called Sakura, who looks just like her]].
* LuckyCharmsTitle

* {{Meido}}

* PantyShot - It takes all of 5 seconds for this series to get to its first PantyShot.
* PaperThinDisguise - Used in the last episode.
* PhenotypeStereotype - Marie Chupacabara W. Whitebear. Also has a bit of RedEyesTakeWarning.
* ThePowerOfLove - Sakura turns [[AttackOfThe50FootWhatever several feet tall and naked]] with the support from everyone in her duel against Marie. But not before she gets hit with a tranquilizer first. Marie tries this too, but since her own supporters are initially.... less then exuberant, she only grows a few feet or so initially but manages to do better a few moments later.
* PsychoLesbian - The Black Rose...you can't get any more psycho than the Black Rose. It doesn't help that she [[WhipItGood she uses a whip that resembles a vine full of thorns]] called the Black Rose Rabu Rabu Whip of Love...
** Which gets even weirder (and {{squick}}ier) once she turns out to be [[spoiler:Sakura's mother]].
*** Because it wasn't squicky enough that her [[spoiler: whipping of Sakura]] was accompanied by [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything visuals]] that were quite reminiscent of how [[RapeIsLove rape]] is often depicted in anime?
* QuirkyMinibossSquad - The White Knights, Marie's followers.
* RecapEpisode - For a show this short? Apparently yes.
* TheRival - Marie, daughter of the Whitebear Megacorp.
* RoomFullOfCrazy - A ''hall'' in this case.
* SceneryCensor
** GroinAttack
* SchoolgirlLesbians - Sakura shows enough signs to be identified as one.
** In the last episode, she even gropes a newly transferred girl's breasts right off the bat. Case closed.
** As a kid, Kujira also once confessed her love to a girl--and none other than [[spoiler:Sakura]] at that. To be fair, Kujira ''was'' very young at the time and [[WhyCouldntYouBeDifferent raised as a boy]].
*** Let's not forget Maguro's reaction to Kujira (including LuminescentBlush), and Sha Chi.
** Thanks to time travel, Kujira managed to alter the event; instead, she [[spoiler: confessed to '''''her older self''''']].
* SequelHook
* ShoutOut - ''KamenRider'' and ''RozenMaiden'' among others. Several episode titles are puns on other anime, and by episode eight, the OP is animated as a joke at the expense of RevolutionaryGirlUtena.
** {{Macross}}, MobileSuitGundam, CaptainHarlock.
*** Oh, and episode 19 has a [[SaintSeiya Saint Seiya-style]] sacrificial attack.
* SiblingYinYang - Sakura is a GenkiGirl, her little sister Kaede is a LittleMissSnarker.
* StudentCouncilPresident
* SupernaturalMartialArts
* ThemeNaming - Polar animals in this case.
* TimeMachine - Introduced in episode 15.
* ToThePain - The level of abuse The Black Rose inflicts on Sakura reaches torturous levels, up to the point where [[DudeNotFunny things become rather questionable]].
* UnsettlingGenderReveal - Thanks to being [[WhyCouldntYouBeDifferent raised as a boy]], Kujira was dropped on ''herself'' at some point before the series started. She's [[{{Bokukko}} still pretty danged tomboyish]], despite her best efforts to the contrary.
** Also her fiance the ChineseGirl, Sha Chi, either has apparently still not realized Kujira's gender or she just doesn't care, although given that she sees the engagement as a way to have cool martial arts battles it might be the latter.
* VerbalTic - Sha Chi.
* WholesomeCrossdresser - Kare Ijuin.
* WhipItGood - The Black Rose.
* WidgetSeries
* ZettaiRyouiki
