An adaptation of a book written Tomohiko Morimi (Night is Short Walk on Girl, The Tatami Galaxy) and is the first feature film by Studio Colorido!

Synopsis: “Aoyama is a boy in the 4th grade. Every day he learns about the world, and he writes what he’s learned into his notebook. He’s smart, and he studies hard every day, so there’s no telling how great he’ll grow up to be!

He’s friends with “The Lady”, a young woman who works at his dentist’s office. The Lady finds his intelligence, his grown – up attitude, and the fact that he can be a bit of a brat to be very cute.

One day, penguins appear in the suburbs where Aoyama lives. These penguins appear out of nowhere far from the sea, and then simply disappear. Where did they come from and where did they go?

Aoyama begins his research in order to solve the mysteries of the penguins.

One day he sees the Lady throw a can of soda into the air, and watches it transform into a penguin. As he stares in astonishment, the Lady gives him a challenge.

Try and solve this mystery. Well? Do you think you can do it?

What’s the relationship between the lady and the penguins? Can he solve the mystery? This is the story of a slightly mysterious and completely unforgettable summer experienced by a little boy”



Our Limited Collector’s Edition release will come packed in a rigid case, showcasing some of the fabulous artwork created for the film on either side. Inside the rigid case you’ll find a digipack to hold the Blu-ray and DVD discs – which contains the film with both English and original Japanese with English subtitles viewing options.

Additionally inside you’ll find a whopping 300-page full colour storyboard book of the film! What do we mean by full colour, you may be wondering? Well it’s pretty simple; traditionally storyboards are in black and white, or not coloured in. In the case of Penguin Highway, there are elements of the storyboard where colour was factored in! So where there was colour in the storyboards, that’s being replicated in our storyboard book too!

And finally there’s also a numbered certificate of authenticity included as well, so you can be the envy of your friends you that own this set!
