Schoolboy Aoyama is bright, inquisitive and a bit headstrong. He has a lot of brainwork to get busy with – after all, he’ll be an adult in just a few thousand days. For the moment, though, he’ll have to live life as a fourth-grader. Not that it’s a bad life. Summer has arrived and school’s nearly out. He has a crush on an intriguing older woman he’s met at his dentist’s office, who’s coaching him in his chess game. And a colony of penguins has materialized in the middle of Aoyama’s sleepy little town. Where on Earth – or elsewhere – did these waddling interlopers come from? Aoyama and his friends embark on a research mission, applying rigorous scientific methods and principles. Their discoveries, however, only lead to ever more puzzling wonders…

The plot was fantastic on this one, starts out as just a boy and his extremely over complicated ultra smart thoughts and then WHEEE!!! fun plot. =-D Animation was spectacular! Everything was clean cut and bold, wonderful backgrounds as well. Sound was great, you could tell what was going on. Sound was crisp and clear, wonderful music throughout and a wonderful end credits song. Character development and interaction was good to see. Didn't need any background on any of the characters really, since it was kind of a mystery for one of them and the rest were all kids. Interaction between them all went smoothly and fluid as you watched each one “grow” in their own way. Overall this is a great movie to watch and I recommend this one to everyone! It's one that has some feels in it and in a way seems like a slice of life anime. Either way, a great watch!
