They have great personalities though
I once mentioned some adorable pets from anime that I would be happy to take home because they are fluffy, have magical powers, and make excellent, inseparable friends.
However, there are many pets, familiars, and other non-human companions that may not have the best appearance — but are equally or even more beautiful at heart. So it would be unfair not to give them some love, too.
After all, looks aren’t everything!
So let’s open our minds and hearts to these strange creatures and grant them all the virtual head pats they deserve.
In How to Keep a Mummy, we see unusual pets, starting from Mii, the tiny mummy that inspires the show’s name.
Each little monster looks cute to me, but a group of mean kids attacked the oni, Conny, because they considered him ugly.
Conny isn’t very bright, but he’s a loyal and devoted little friend!
It feels disrespectful to mention a human character’s father in a post about non-human creatures, but Chiyo's father is a cat. A weird one, though.
He sure is disturbing with his big eyes and deep voice. But he’s friendly and pleasant to converse with, as we would expect from a great father. I would take him as a pet, too, if allowed.
Iggy is a regular dog. He is a Boston Terrier with a strong personality and often causes trouble, which isn’t very different from most dogs. However, because he lacks a cute face, not everyone gives him proper attention or has the patience to care for him.
Yet, despite being a troublemaker, he saved the Joestar group many times, proving he’s a legit good boy!
Ryuk is the definition of “a face only a mother could love.” But still, I know many otakus that would love to hang around with this creepy shinigami.
While good at heart is not how I would describe Ryuk, he still deserves some head pats. The thrilling dispute between Kira and L wouldn’t exist if it weren't for him.
These and other extraordinary creatures from anime may have unconventional looks and behaviors, but Isn’t that why we like them so much?
Looks can be deceiving. What matters most is knowing I can count on who is around me — just like you can count on me to introduce you to more unique anime characters!
So keep an eye out for the next blog posts, and let me know in the comments what other weird creatures you would add to this list!
