This Kinky Penguin Has Fallen In Love With An Anime Cutout Because Animals Are Wild

Look, obviously animals are wild. We knew that. But they’re also weird AF. We can’t really tell if this is the cutest or the creepiest animal love story ever.

Meet Grape, a Humboldt penguin who lives in Japan’s Tobu Zoo.

Yep, things are about to get weird.

When he first arrived at the zoo a decade ago, Grape had a relationship with a female penguin named Midori. But Midori had cold feet rather than happy feet, and ditched the 20-year-old Grape for a younger penguin, according to BuzzFeed News.

But the heartbroken penguin refused to give up. He found love in a hopeless place.

Grape has totally fallen for the anime cutout.

Alright, sure, it’s pretty weird. But also kind of adorable too, right?

Grape even hung out with Ikuko Chikuta, the voice actress for the anime character.

Naturally, anime being anime, the relationship inspired some art.

And also this GIF, which is quite something.

So what’s your take? Cute? Or Creepy? Let us know in the comments.
