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?

Penguin High-Way will receive it’s Japanese cinema release this August while a UK release will take place at some point during 2019. It’s also expected that Anime Limited have the home-video-rights to this film, so we can also expect a Blu-Ray and DVD release during late 2019 onwards; althought these details have yet to be revealed.
