Mawaru Penguindrum: The Bell of Fate Tolls (Ep.1)

Shoma and Kamba's little sister have been diagnosed with a terminal illness and would only live for a few months at best. Because of this, the two brothers try to do their best to make her remaining days as meaningful and as happy as possible. ­­

"Doctors aren't gods you know?"
The three siblings are born from a very poor family. After their parents are gone, the two elder brothers did their best to raise Himari despite the hardships. But then, Himari got an illness that modern medical science cannot cure. No matter where you look at it, they are being toyed with by fate.

"Today is Himari Day!"
Shoma told Himari that she can do anything today and so she decided that she wants to see the penguins. The three then went to the zoo to make her wish come true. On their way back, they went to a souvenir shop to buy Himari some gift to commemorate this day and she went with a penguin hat.

"I'm the Queen for today."
While waiting at the counter for the item to be gift wrapped, they hear someone from the outside asking to call an ambulance and when the two came to check it out, they saw Himari unconscious in the floor.

The doctors did their best but it didn't take long until she said goodbye.

With the death of their beloved sister, the two went into the depths of despair. Kamba blamed fate for this tragedy which pissed Shoma off, saying that this is just punishment for the two of them. The two were then surprised at what happens next...

"If you want this girl to survive..."
The entity inside the hat have revived their little sister, and the three were reunited. She began to speak about the terms and condition of the pact but stopped when the hat went off. The doctor is amazed with her miraculous recovery and says that she's stable.

Pingroup Inc?
The next day, they received a package from an unknown sender. At first, they didn't know what's inside because it was frozen stiff but after it melted later, they are revealed to be penguins. Not ordinary penguins that you see in the zoo, they are magical penguins that only the three of them can see. The penguins seem to understand what their saying and are helping out with the house chores.

"Listen, you lowlifes who will never amount to anything."
Later that day, the penguin hat possesses Himari once again. She orders the two brothers to acquire the Penguindrum if they want their little sister to live.
