Where did all these penguins come from?

Fourth-grade student Aoyama is a young boy sure of his own intelligence and place in the world; he spends his days buried in his notebooks and studying the world around him. But when penguins appear in his small town far away from any oceans, Aoyama knows there’s a mystery that only he can solve—a mystery that involves the woman he has a crush on.

An anime adaption of Morimi Tomihiko’s award-winning novel of the same name, Penguin Highway, is an unforgettable tale about growing up, love, and discovering yourself.
