Rating: 3.5/5 -- Comes off as if a lascivious purveyor of adult-oriented anime got their hands on a Miyazaki project. Full Review

Rating: 4/5 -- For almost all ages, this is a heart-warming, imagination-tickling joy - and a film that should put Ishida and Colorido on every anime fan's to-watch list. Full Review

Rating: 3/5 -- For viewers of Aoyama's age this could be a film that lingers in the mind for years to come, like the half-memory of a strange but pleasant dream. Full Review

A coming-of-age story outfitted with an engaging anthropomorphic overlay that can make you forget you're watching an intimately filmed documentary instead of an animated adventure. Full Review

Hiroyasu Ishida directs an anime in the style mostly established by the aforementioned in the prologue, mixing fantasy with reality, through a story mostly involving children but actually carrying messages that are addressed to adults. Full Review

Product Description:

This Japanese animated adventure directed by Hiroyasu Ishida follows science enthusiast Aoyama-kun (Kana Kita), a fourth-grader who begins to investigate something strange in his village. He has noticed that penguins have appeared, and somehow their appearance is linked to a lady from his local dentist's office, a link he must explore further to truly understand.
