Anime Animals

Dogs vs Cats

Dear Anime lovers,

We are discussing the animals in anime that help kick the enemy’s butts. Our main focus today is dogs and cats. There are so many animals used in Anime but we are focusing on the animals that help their owners fight the enemy or fight for themselves using extreme powers.

In the left corner we have the cats and the winner for today’s topic is Kuro, from the anime Blue Exorcist A.K.A Ao no Exorcist. Kuro is a black supernatural cat with two tails and two horns on his head. He is also a deity (god) who ends up partnering with Rin, the main character from Blue Exorcist and defeating other demons. He later becomes Rin’s familiar.

 For those who do not know what a familiar is. It is an animal or spirit that helps witches or other supernatural people with magic. Rin was an exorcist so hence he was magical. He was other things, but I’m really trying not to spoil it but I was quite shocked about who he was.

Kuro was a powerful deity disguised as a cat who had to be controlled due to his killing spree when humans stopped worshipping him. This was possible as he could transform into a very big cat larger than an adult human being.

He found a companionship in Rin who resembled his former master Shiro who was Rin’s adopted father and they ended up being partners themselves. Kuro ended up becoming one of the guardians of the True Cross Academy a high school for young exorcists to cultivate their powers to adulthood for slaying demons. In the right corner we have the dogs and our winner is Iggy a Boston Terrier breed from the anime Jojo’s Bizzare Adventure Stardust Crusaders. Iggy should be a legend on his own in my opinion. Iggy is not just any dog he is a mood. For those who have read about him in a manga or watched him in the anime and seen his actions you would understand. For those who have not, all I can say is you just have to see for yourself.

Naruto Shippuden Review

Dear Anime World Lovers,

It is finally over for our youthful Ninja, like Rock Lee would say. It has been a great experience watching Naruto and it took me 11 years to complete it. Of course I cried at the very end.

It was emotional. Naruto was and is forever one of the best Anime that is relatable to anyone that watches it. His attitude and mindset alone are what people should aspire to be like. The act of believing in oneself and to never give up.

After watching Naruto, I can say I have learned a great deal, like perseverance, acceptance, courage, love, dedication and looking towards fulfilling one’s dream. Whatever it might be.  

Favourite characters in Naruto the Anime include:

  1. Naruto Uzumaki
  2. Kakashi Hatake
  3. Jiraya
  4. Gaara of the Sand
  5. Tsunade Senju
  6. Shikamaru Nara
  7. Itachi Uchiha
  8. Minato Namikaze
  9. Neji Hyuga
  10. Sasuke Uchiha
  11. Rock Lee
  12. Hinata Hyuga

These are some of my favourites, but there are still a lot more. On a scale of 1 – 10 Naruto gets an 8 because there are still some issues we have to realize with the production.
