* A term derived from an ecological behavioral trait of penguins. It describes the courage and bravery of the penguin who is the first to jump and find food in the ocean, where predators may lurk. The rest of the penguins, hesitant and cautious, follow the first penguin's lead. Thus, the first penguin refers to a brave pioneer that takes on a challenge in spite of uncertainty and potential difficulties. *The original Japanese document is the authoritative version.
