“Fabulous Max” – Mawaru Penguindrum
Con Artist: Sushma
It’d be a lie if I say that I totally understand what “Fabulous Max” means. Kunihiko Ikuhara, known for his masterpiece Revolutionary Girl Utena, took on something totally different but no less insane and surreal with Mawaru Penguindrum. The term “Fabulous Max” gets uttered at different points throughout the show for reasons like, “a girl jumping out a window” or just because the lead villain (this is a very questionable term to give to this character) just looks fantastic in his new scarf. Regardless of where it’s used, it’s said in full English and is a phrase I use anywhere I can. Be sure to watch Penguindrum and you too will love this phrase.
