Day 15 already, and our question is: What is my favorite Animal Sidekick, Pet, or Summon from Anime. Well, to be fair, i’m not exactly the biggest fan of the whole animal sidekick thing that anime likes to do. So often when I see them, they just annoy me, and never really serve a purpose to the actual story of the show. However, there is one, just one, that has always stood out to me as amazingly written in as an integral part of the story of a show. That is, of course, Kyubey, from Puella Magi Madoka Magica.
Kyubey is an adorable white-and-pink little… Cat? Rabbit? Dog? thing. Appearing suddenly one day to a young girl named Madoka, Kyubey offers to grant one wish, any wish, of hers, in exchange for Madoka becoming a Magical Girl to fight against the evil Witches. With such a strong incentive, honeyed words, and a cute facade, Kyubey is able to persuade many girls into becoming Magical Girls. Kyubey’s cute appearance but sinister vibe, and being an integral part of the story make Kyubey a genuinely interesting character. Also Madoka Magica is just incredibly good.
If you’ve never seen Madoka Magica before, watch it. Anyways, what do you guys think of this question? What are some of your favorite mascot/animal characters and why? And a question of my own, do you like the inclusion of mascot/animal characters in shows? Anyways guys, thanks so much for reading, and I hope to see you all tomorrow!
