Beckham is funny, punny, and crude - he's also a big (and sometimes deflatable) blue penguin with a penchant for human friends. While Naoto and Yumi attend class and try to live their daily lives, Beckham is usually (and unexplainably) by their sides. Whether it’s accidents in the pool, dodging angry bears, discovering sea creatures aplenty or finding lost money, there’s nary a dull day in the lives of these children – and penguin!
One day, Dejiko, Puchiko and the strange ball-shaped Gema-Gema crash land their UFO in the middle of Akihabara. Without a single yen to their name they have nowhere to go, but following an unexpected and generous offer from the manager of a nearby store, the trio begin working at the shop in exchange for renting the room upstairs. Alongside Dejiko’s self-confessed rival Rabi-en-Rose, as well as a mysterious bear that has mastered the ability to appear happy, sad, depressed and angry all at once, the insanity is only just beginning! From shooting window shoppers with Dejiko’s Laser Eye Beam and the appearance of a bizarre farting impostor, to a sudden attack on the city by Godzilla, life at Gamers is certainly livening up.
If you liked the random elements of Penguin no Mondai and want something a lot better (though still aimed at younger folks), check out the Di Gi Charat franchise (except Nyo).
If you liked the daft and random humour of Penguin no Mondai, then you will likely enjoy Di Gi Charat. Both have the same comedic stylings, though Di Gi Charat can often be far more bizarre.
At Cromartie High, it’s tough being a delinquent -- a fact that do-gooder Takashi Kamiyama intimately understands. When he’s not engaging in contests of strength and rival gang wars, Kamiyama can also be found submitting punny jokes and planning his own rise to fame within the delinquents’ ranks, and that’s just the beginning! With friends like robotic Mechazawa, a giant gorilla, a hairy man from the 80s named Freddie and a clan of delinquents with mohawks that flow in the wind, how can anyone not enjoy high school?
Penguin no Mondai tries its hardest to be a random comedy anime, but fails fairly miserably. If you liked PnM's valiant try, why not check out a series that actually succeeds: Cromartie. The animation is more muted and the target age is definitely older, but it overall is a far superior product.
Hanada Ichiro is an abrasive young man who lives with his hag of a mother, his father the drunk, his grandfather the absent-minded, and his older sister. One sunny afternoon, Ichiro's rebellious antics finally take a turn for the worse, causing him to get hit by a car. When he awakens, he discovers that he has the ability to see ghosts, and converse with them (much to his dismay, since they all seem to want helpful favors). Will Ichiro's newfound ability be a blessing, or just another annoyance in his life?
Hanada Shounen-shi and Penguin no Mondai are each crude, comedic tales that are aimed at children. PnM is admittedly less plot-driven, but fans of one still may enjoy the other. I didn't care for either.
In a magical world, the naive and spunky Padadu is training to be a magical girl -- a title reserved for those who have defeated many in battles, and earns them a right to visit Earth. Along with her arch rival Pipin, seductive and manipulative Myumyu and the fugitive Nonononn, Padadu and her magical sentient fish costume travel the world in search of fun and adventure! But the tyrant queen Purilun and her lackey Zucchini are hot on their trail; will Padadu ever become a real magical girl?
In a normal neighborhood in a normal city, a young maid arrives from the maid village to help out a young unnamed girl. But this battery-operated being is no ordinary maid! Not only can she remove her head and turn her body into glue (amongst other things), Cheko-chan also has the wackiest of friends. From Mizore, the edible snow spirit from the north, to Nachiko, a large squid who likes to change faces, to Kanato the Yankee, the bully who is the strongest of them all, it seems the craziness has just begun in the life of a once typical high school student.
Pugyuru is another bizarre, random anime that may interest you. Unlike Penguin no Mondai, it appeals to an older audience (sort of) and in general is a lot more strange. Regardless, you may enjoy it.
