Pen the Penguin lives with his most favorite keeper in the world: Hayakawa the Human. But Pen’s no ordinary penguin . . . He’s a neat penguin! A proper penguin! A doting penguin! Pen loves to daydream of Hayakawa’s smile as he flips pancakes and folds the laundry with his teeny-tiny flippers. If only his beloved Hayakawa would notice! It’s too bad Pen’s human keeper is a hopelessly lazy university student, but with a little nap and some helpful friends, Pen is ready to tackle the day!

Imagine you’re living with a neat, multitasking penguin who goes above and beyond just to see you smile every day . . . Do you have a favourite animal? One who has always made your heart skip a beat? Me too, take a guess!

Pen is one of the most adorable penguins you can dream of having around. In fact, his cuteness is the main reason why everyone who meets him ends up being in awe! If only Hayakawa would be more considerate and appreciate everything Pen does the same way his friends do, it would sure make this penguin’s day. Mind you, he loves Pen, but he’s so lazy that he doesn’t notice all the amazing things Pen constantly does for him. Of course, all this leads to inevitable funny scenes that—while laughing—make you want to really shake the human and hug the penguin. If only we could really do that! Better yet, if we could just have our own doting penguin . . .

An enjoyable and so very cute read with some brief interludes that give an even nicer touch to this manga. I dare you not to browse the web to look at more penguin cuteness after reading this!
