This anime is one of my favorites but I hate the english dub version. I'm normally not that against dubs, and sometimes prefer it even. So I'm not just biased... trust me... this dub is terrible
Love this show.
I first got into it because of the trippy visuals and the fact that it features these cute penguin characters who, if you payed close attention to them, would actually steal every moment they're in. But the deeper you get into the series, the more you see that there's a very serious message being conveyed to you, and that the characters are totally not what they seem to be when you first met them. It becomes a surprisingly poignant human drama later on, even while the mysteries keep piling up.
The dub actually isn't that bad. It is sloppy when it comes to synching the characters' mouth movements in certain scenes, and there's some weird script inconsistencies (in one episode, for instance, instead of saying "Survival Tactic" like Himari always does, she instead says "Longevity Tactic"). However, acting-wise the actors actually do a good job in their roles. (Ringo and Kanba were standouts, IMO.)
