The story centers around the lives of three siblings, Takakura Kanba, Takakura Shouma and their terminally ill sister Takakura Himari. Himari passes away after going out on a trip with her brothers. She was however, miraculously saved by a spirit thriving in a penguin-shaped hat. In return for her extended life, the twins must search for an item known as the Penguin Drum with the aid of three penguins which are visible only to the siblings.

The plot meanders around for a long time with a lot of wasted time. The penguins server no purpose other than comic relief, which makes for some really jarring tonal inconsistencies (like hearing life/death talk while watching them goof off is ... weird). Overall incoherent and generally not worth watching.
