TTT: Top Ten Tuesday-Crazy Cute Critters That Make For Great Sidekicks

One of the anime’s I have been enjoying this winter season is Miira no Kaikata (How to Keep a Mummy). I mean…how could you not love an adorable pint-sized mummy that barks on occasions? I know I do! I also have quite the attachment to all the other critters as well.

Just look at them! 🙂

I really adore Isao (the dragon) and Mukumuku (the Baku) who looks like a little piggy. I was also stoked when Aayan showed up in episode 10. I have a real big fascination with Egyptian Gods…so you can say my inner fan-girl came out when a talking Anubis statue was represented. After watching the latest episode last night I got to thinking about all the other creature/animal sidekicks in anime. I wanted to give them some representation in today’s Top Ten Tuesday.

So here are my top ten favorite critter sidekicks in anime!

1. Meow from Space Dandy


^This one should be pretty obvious since Meow looks like a cat….and y’all know I love cats ❤


2. Ein from Cowboy Bebop

^Just an adorable fun loving Corgi doggo :3


3. Sonic from Kekkai Sensen

^Sonic is literally my spirit animal.


4. Ariel from Mahoutsukai no Yome (The Ancient Magus’ Bride)

^I love how inherently sassy Ariel is.


5. Fuzzy from Fukigen na Mononokean (The Morose Mononokean)

^Fuzzy just looks like a cute little fluffy cloud. I wanna snuggle him!


6. Nyanko-sensei from Natsume Yuujinchou (Natsume’s Book of Friends)

^The best part of the whole show!


7. Mao from Darker Than Black

^I’m seeing a pattern here. Cats for the win!


8. Kero and Spinel from CardCaptor Sakura

^One of the best comedic duos in anime.


9. Juli from Brother’s Conflict

^Juli is one overprotective squirrel! XD


10. Hawk from Nanatsu no Taizai

^Hawk-chan is me on an everyday basis.


Honorable Mentions:
Botan from Clannad
Natsu from Kuma Miko
Kuro from Ao no Exorcist
Larg and Soel from xxxHolic
Jiji from Kiki’s Delivery Service
Heen from Howl’s Moving Castle
Luna, Artemis, & Diane from Sailor Moon
