My anime pet thought

There are lot of fantastic characters in every anime that we enjoy. One certain thing that the best addition to it are the animals. They've become more important to their various series and always provide tons of laughs and heartwarming moments. In anime, we can have a pet that is impossible to have in real life such as talking dog or cat that can be our companions to our adventures. It's a great thing to have an anime pet that can be our long time partner and friend.
