For Mom

TAGAP 4 is dedicated to the memory of Jouni's Mom.


Thank you for everything.



She loved raccoons as much as I love penguins.

Grape-kun

TAGAP 3 is dedicated to the memory of the amazing Grape-kun, Humboldt penguin from Tobu Zoo. Grape-kun became a beloved internet star in 2017 for falling in love with a cut-out of Hululu, a penguin-girl character from Kemono Friends multimedia franchise. Sadly, as reported by Tobu Zoo on October 13th 2017, Grape-kun passed away.


To us, Grape-kun was a perfect embodiment of why we love penguins; every time you think they couldn't become more relatable, one falls in love with a cute anime character like a proper otaku.


We miss you, Grape-kun.

Nöpö

TAGAP 2 is dedicated to Nöpö. He was Petja's grumpy old cat who had decided that Jouni was the best sofa around. We miss you, you grey purring furball.

Snowdrop

The original TAGAP is dedicated to Snowdrop (2002-2004), the albino African Penguin resident of Bristol Zoo Gardens. We miss you.
