Why?.... You will see...
00:04 "I hate the word, fate"
You can already find tons of symbols floating around everywhere, from the narration.
Narrator, talks about 'fate' and 'cruel god'. We can easily find that the parent of this family is 'dead' or 'does not exist currently'. It's kind of mysterious how this theme of 'fate' is constantly mentioned throughout this episode.
Why three? There must be reason why there is consistent focus on number '3'. It is no ordinary number.
Apple? Why apple? Here is the answer;
"Like I said, the apple is the universe itself!
A universe is in palm of your hand,
That's what connects this world to the other world."
"Apple is also reward for those who has chosen love over anything else!"
and the MOST IMPORTANT BIT WAS;
"But everything is over when you are dead"
"No it isn't! It's actually where EVERYTHING BEGINS!"
This means that the story of this family of three, has already 'FINISHED'. It is done, gone, finished, over. It is determined fate. However, there is connection to new world, - so called penguin madness whatever - and the 'NEW FATE' started after the death of Himari.
The next important theme, is actually, very obvious.
Right below the title, you see three important themes of this series.
Number 95, Penguin, and the middle, 'SUBWAY'
Why 'Mawaru'? Why 'Subway'? When 'survival strategy' starts, entrance of underground station suddenly shows up. Didn't you find it quite awkward? It's really out of nowhere. However, it actually makes a lot of sense.
Those brothers... are entering to something that they cannot escape from it. Something that goes around and around... like a fate. Their life in one world has ended, and they now have to face something that is totally different.
Finally, Himari in possess of penguin queen says,
"I came from the place where your fate has started"
It was plural. Not just Himari.
after that, she takes out mysterious red thing from brothers heart.
What does that mean?
There is really... something weird about all the serious narrations by two brothers. Here are the points I can figure out.
1. Their fate, life has already ended. It is 'FINISHED'. Currently, they are given unknown opportunity to 'restart' their fate. The conversation of the children states, that 'DEATH' is the where everything actually 'STARTS'. Penguin queen mentions that she came from where their fate 'BEGINS'. Families' inevitable fate of death as a sacrifice for 'love', the trigger of 'New start'... That means that the story of this series starts from the fact that they are all actually going to 'DIE'. Is that whatever penguin queen girl actually from the future? Are they from another world? What is she trying to do?
2. There is certain 'REASON' (Something related to apple and love). There is certain medium that connects one world to the another. That might be something related to 'PINGDRUM', which penguin queen orders brothers to find it.
3. Mawaru... and Subway... these two reminds me a lot about 'Loop' again. However, it won't be something that is time related. It is about fate that is determined and formidable, unchangeable and inevitable.
4. A lot of questions... what does 'survival strategy' mean anyway? Why 'PENGUINS'? Why number 95?...
Overthinking? Might be. That's why I'm waiting for the next episode.
