Schoolboy Aoyama is bright, inquisitive and a bit headstrong. He has a lot of brainwork to get busy with – after all, he'll be an adult in just a few thousand days. For the moment, though, he'll have to live life as a fourth-grader. Not that it's a bad life. Summer has arrived and school's nearly out. He has a crush on an intriguing older woman he's met at his dentist's office, who's coaching him in his chess game. And a colony of penguins has materialized in the middle of Aoyama's sleepy little town. Where on Earth – or elsewhere – did these waddling interlopers come from? Aoyama and his friends embark on a research mission, applying rigorous scientific methods and principles. Their discoveries, however, only lead to ever more puzzling wonders... (Source: Fantasia)

This movie was amazing! It kinda reminded me of a Ghibli film as it gave me a similar feeling of wonder, fun, and discovery! Worth a watch!


Goes from cute kids movie to bittersweet acid trip in less than 120 minutes. The plot drags a bit in the middle, but overall, it was solid.


A magical film to watch. Full of childlike imagination. Definitely see a bit of myself in Aoyama.


Compelling magical realism elements wrapped up in a fun, heartfelt and visually striking story. Prepare for Penguin shenanigans!


Can’t believe Penguin Highway is literally about being horny for an older woman… and that the MC is me.


Fantastical and mesmerising at times. A wild ride with kids who are, shockingly, aptly made, which is rare for television and anime. Fun!

Penguins are the answer to all.



    I make bad encodes and whine about subs and if I'm feeling particularly memey, I make bad subs too!
