Reader and behind-the-scenes book available soon
Upcoming book adaptation Penguin Highway is already garnering tons of buzz, so you might want to get your hands on some extra materials when it's time to watch. In this case, fans can look forward to a reading guide and a settings book.
The first is an "official reading guide" for the original book and film, featuring a dissection and analysis of the source material for Penguin Highway. In addition, the book will include a long-form interview with author Torihiko Morimi, as well as a short story detailing events in protagonist Aoyama-kun's life before the events of the story.
The reading guide will be available starting August 10.
In addition, fans will be able to grab a collection of art and production materials. The book will include character designs, storyboards, backgrounds, and more from the film. This will be coming out on July 31.
