Tuxedo Gin centers around a teenage boxer named Ginji Kusanagi. At the very start of the series he is killed by a gang of thugs before meeting a girl, named Minako, he planned to go on a date with. Fortunately, (or possibly unfortunately) he manages to get the option of being reincarnated. The only problem is he ends up reincarnated as a penguin, rather than a person.

Added DiffLines:

* VileVillainSaccharineShow: Most of the manga is a lighthearted romantic comedy, but two antagonists are notably dark. The first is a killer who disguises himself as a member of law enforcement [[spoiler:and ends up alone with Minako in a cabin, planning to murder her to hide his trail. He gets as far as strangling her unconscious before Ginji makes it to her rescue]]. The other is the gang member who arranges for Ginji's death. Not only does he show no concern over killing multiple people (besides Ginji, he attempted to murder Musashi and Minako), puts Minako in an IHaveYouNowMyPretty situation [[spoiler:after getting out of prison]], and [[spoiler:tries to kill Minako and Gin with a truck after they escape from him]]. He's so creepy that the gang who hired him to get payback on Ginji and Musashi are terrified of him and think his methods are too extreme.
