I bought a smartphone with android system last month and while I was downloading some apps I discovered this incredible virtual friend and I thought "wow, it's very popular and I never heard about it!".
So, what's a Pensoguin? It's an OMG SO CUTE imaginary animal similar to an emperor penguin's baby, which lives on the Internet, PCs, and mobile phones. It has recently expanded it's habitat into the real world as a stuffed animal and a character in a four-frame comic strip book. Oh! and of course it's japanese, from where else he could be besides Japan. Duh.
