Default Penguin Highway

Seems like this one doesn't have a thread. It came out in Japan last week; no subtitles unfortunately. I'm very much considering putting in an order anyway, along with Mirai



Has anyone here seen it? Any good?

It’s getting a US release;

Heard it’s pretty good, my favourite Aniblogger gave it a good recommendation, plus- it’s Penguins.

Really intrigued to see this one. Lots of good word about it, even in my non-anime circles I travel in.

I’m not getting excited over Eleven Arts having it. Maquia fiasco has me being extremely cautious of them.

Neither am I. But, it means those people who will constantly b*tch and moan about how they donít do Region B can have something.

Could be a positive sign that it's on this year's Japan Foundation tour.

I'm really looking forward to this one, I might actually see it in theaters if it gets a release near me.

Ordering Penguin Highway and Mirai would kill my anime budget for the month, so I don't think it's happening anyway, though

Anything that has Hikaru Utada’s music has automatic approval
I know next to nothing of the actual film, so I can’t wait to go into it blind

What Maquia Fiasco?

I saw Penguin Highway at a premier screening last Fall. it was good.A little surreal but cute. But I'm a sucker for stuff with penguins in it.

Maquia has hardcoded subtitles when set to JP audio (JP video track has JP credits and burnt in subtitles, EN video track has EN credits and just the dub). 100% unacceptable even if they were forced to. I personally can’t support a release like that.

Does anyone with a Blu-ray drive have the US release so I can get me some dang subs? I thought I had some, but they turned out to be useless.
