It has been announced that the key visuals and special news footage for the first part of the movie will be released on April 29, 2022 (Friday).
“RE: cycle of the PENGUINDRUM” will be released in 2022 next year as “Two-part work before and after” as an edited movie version that reconstructs the TV series and adds a completely new part.
In the key visual released this time, the characters are depicted standing in the key “train” in the play, but the depiction like a dim underwater, the penguins floating in the sky, and the “fate of fate” in the work. The situation that you see for the first time is impressive even though there are motifs of works so far, such as apples that appear as “fruits”.
Teaser video released!
In addition, a special video will be released at the same time. The beginning begins with the line “The train has returned us to this town again.” The words spoken by Kanba (CV. Subaru Kimura) and Akima (CV. Ryohei Kimura) call for a new mystery. It has become.

The official website is also open. The main staff / cast will be a gathering of gorgeous production teams, including a follow-up from the TV series, and Lapin Track will be responsible for the animation production of the new movie part. Comments have also arrived from director Kunihiko Ikuhara, character draft Lily Hoshino, scriptwriter Takayo Ikami, and music Yukari Hashimoto.
I would like to thank the people who connected me to the miracle of meeting the characters of Penguindrum again in this era.
What have we lost 10 years since then? I want to see what the characters who couldn’t go anywhere at that time tell us who can’t go anywhere now.
All life is with loss. Let’s have a survival strategy.
After 10 years, I am very happy to meet Takakura brothers and sisters, penguins and Puri Kuri on the screen, and to be involved in this work again. A new character is also drawn as a draft according to this movie version. As a fan of one work, I’m really looking forward to seeing how new characters and existing characters will relate to each other.
“Penguindrum” is a special work for me.
When I made the movie version, I reread the script and remembered that time. For some reason, I cried a little.
Anyway, it was a day when I struggled with the story desperately. I think it was a script that I couldn’t write unless I really wanted to be someone.
It’s been ten years since then … I’ve been involved in a work that has been loved for such a long time, and the experience I gained there is my treasure. thank you.
Ten years after the broadcast, “Penguindrum” is back as a movie version. I miss the time when I first participated in Ikuhara’s work, and I am happy to see him again.
The movie version of the music has a rearrangement of the songs of that time, and there are recordings of new musical instruments, so it is finished in a lot of contents. I was impressed by the performance 10 years ago, and why did this phrase come out? There were many new discoveries. I spend my days thinking about what to add to the song.
Please enjoy the new sound at the movie theater.

The movie version “RE: cycle of the PENGUINDRUM” will have a completely new part in addition to the TV series, but it is also clear that a new character will appear this time. We look forward to future information on what kind of mechanism can be seen in the movie version as the story of “RE: cycle” = “reconstruction” by director Kunihiko Ikuhara.
