The protagonist is a young street fighter who falls into a coma and learns that he has lived his life so selfishly that he only has enough karma points to be reincarnated as an animal 15 pounds or less. Trapped in the body of a chin-strap penguin, he tries to overcome the humiliation and rack up enough good deeds to get his old body back and save the girl he loves.

I would so love this animated. Haven't read the manga, but the storyline sounds so cute and promising. But Disney will probably make it a live action or a CGI.
Wish they could just go back to the old days with the animation

I'm pretty sure this is going to be a CGI movie... and I dislike CGI movies.
I hope it's worth the watch though.

A manga that ended over 10 years ago with relatively little popularity? So random, lol.

This will probably be a comedy for the likes of Adam Sandler, Kevin James and Ben Stiller.

I'm curious wether they will do that, or go for the younger actors. Either way, the synopsis is perfect for a Disney comedy.

Sounds like a good pick up, hopefully its animated instead of a live action.

What? I doubt it'll be animated. It's all about computer-animated these days and I can't stand watching those kind of movies anymore.

D: Indeed. I was in denial when I first read the title and thought it meant an anime adaptation, because I adore that manga. Why can't you just make your own penguin movie Disney? Huh? Adaptations are fine but come on. Let's see a little originality here.

The style of this manga and of Disney are too different for me to be excited about this. I'm pretty sure they picked this specifically because it has a cute penguin in it. Which is dumb, because there are other anime/manga that could probably be used by Disney and end up completely adorable.

Ah well. I'll try to hope for the best but... eh.
