Tori, Austin, and Tobias review the latest anime adaptation of a Tomihiko Moremi novel, Penguin Highway! We have lots of good things to say about it, but a solid handful of critiques as well, so give it a listen! Hopefully you had the chance to see it in theaters, but if you missed it, don’t worry because Eleven Arts is releasing it on Bluray very soon!
If you enjoyed Penguin Highway and want more things like it, check out the other anime adaptations of Moremi’s novels, The Tatami Galaxy and The Night is Short, Walk on Girl. Also, check out some other anime from Studio Colorido, notably the short Fumiko’s Confession and Typhoon Noruda, the latter being from Yōjirō Arai, the character designer on Penguin Highway.

Major thanks to Erika Harlacher (voice of Onee-san) for the opening promo! That was recorded all the way back in June of 2018 during Hamacon so we’re glad we finally found a good place for it.
