Heard Tomihiko Morimi's novel "Penguin Highway" is finally getting an anime movie and it got me so excited. Considering how much I love Yoru wa Mijikashi Arukeyo Otome and Yojouhan Shinwa Taikei, I'm definitely gonna enjoy this one too!

I truly love his work. Cried tears of joy while watching Yoru wa Mijikashi Arukeyo Otome and earlier Yojouhan Shinwa Taikei.

Why the hell aren't his novels being translated is a good question.
I've just finished a GOOD fan translation of The Tatami Galaxy by a guy who actually had some idea of what he was doing and it was incredible. I wish I could see a profesional take on it.

So unique story telling! Morimi-sensei works have such a depth without trying too much.
two of his works are my most favourited titles, uchouten kazoku and yojouhan shinwa taikei, are both masterpiece!

I would love to read the Uchouten Kazoku novels - in the anime, the story's world and characters are wonderful! I couldn't find any sources about them being translated in English. :(
