Grape the worlds first otaku penguin! who hopefully won't have to be separated from his waifu when the promotion ends. Very Happy

I'll have to give the designers credit. They managed to make a character that was appealing to the same species as the character was based on.

I'm rooting for you grape-kun. Don't let the normies tell you you can't love in 2D.

I tweeted a screenshot of Goboiano's blog and it blew up lmao...People really love Grape-kun.

Interesting to hear the comment from the the spokesperson about the net. It's still a sad looking photo though... Seperated from your love, looking on sadly.....

That new image is hilarious though. I guess he's seriously smitten.

ANN took their time with this.

Even the Penguin realizes that 2D > 3D.

Think it's rather cute. The poor guy just wants love.

Just wonder if they will keep the cutout somewhere after the promotion ends?

I didn't know penguin can get that old Shocked
I guess all the newbie otaku should call him senpai Laughing
Kinda feel bad he's probably confused why the female penguin doesn't give any reaction at all

Cute but also a bit disturbing. Nevertheless, its love, so also rooting for him. Very Happy

The Shoebill exhibit, however, hasn't been as successful, as the other shoebills just sort of....stare contemptuously back at their cutout. Evil or Very Mad

(Our city park had a nice marshy island in the middle of the water where they'd put a bronze heron statue.
And every summer, you could see one or two real herons setting their territories next to the statue, clearly thinking "Yeah, this one thinks it's a good spot, although she doesn't say much...")

This is 1 of those stories where the amount of inspired memes could be more interesting than the story itself.
