Ross founded the UK Anime Network back in 1995, and following Andy Hanley's retirement has returned to the post of Editor-in-Chief in 2017. What an old man!


Anime Ltd has announced today that their next theatrical release will be Studio Colorido's Penguin Highway. Based on the novel written by Tomihiko Morimi (Night is Short, Walk On Girl), the film is directed by the up and coming Hiroyasu Ishida and tells the tale of a young boy whose life is changed by the sudden appearance of penguins all over town!

The film is scheduled for 2019, though a precise date has yet to be revealed.

You can see the original announcement on the All the Anime Blog.

Synopsis:

“Aoyama is a serious 10 year-old boy who records all of his day-to-day experiences in his notebook. One day in May, penguins inexplicably appear in his home town, despite being located a long way from the sea. When Aoyama sees “Big Sis” – a young woman who works at a dentist’s office – drop a soft drink can which inexplicably turns into a penguin, he decides to investigate and resolve the mystery behind these strange events.

Together with his classmates, Aoyama happens upon a strange phenomena which is surely the key to these goings-on. Will their investigation bear fruit, and just how is “Big Sis” linked to these occurrences?”
