The novels for the supernatural anime by acclaimed director Kunihiko Ikuhara (Sailor Moon, Revolutionary Girl Utena, Sarazanmai).
Brothers Kanba and Shoma adore their terminally ill little sister, Himari, and aren’t prepared to lose her. They’re definitely not prepared for a family trip to the aquarium, source of many of Himari’s fondest memories, to suddenly turn tragic when Himari collapses and dies. What happens next, however, is beyond the siblings’ wildest imaginations—as Himari miraculously returns from the dead, sporting a penguin-shaped hat, and accompanied by some magical new friends!
