In commemoration of World Penguin Day which takes place on every year’s 25 April, let’s take some time to appreciate our anime penguins!
Having appeared in anime titles such as Mawaru Penguindrum, Polar Bear Cafe and Pingu in the City, Penguins are not a rare, but neither a common sight in anime. Of course, we all know a group of penguin idols who have swept many anime fans off their feet.
That’s right–PPP of Kemono Friends!
Here’s a tidbit, showing you a fun behind-the-scene clip of the seiyuu of PPP modeling for the live concert scene in Episode 8 of Kemono Friends 2, using motion capture.
