The Pet Girl of Sakurasou - Short Review


The Pet Girl of Sakurasou is a little mix of everything. If you want humor, love triangles, drama and life lessons to be learned then this is probably something you should watch.  It's mostly about high school teens who get outcast from their dorms into Sakura Hall which is meant for trouble making students.

The plot revolves around Sorata Kanda who was kicked out of the dorms and moved to Sakura Hall for taking care of a cat and meets Mashiro Shiina who is a very talented artist but so inept of taking care of herself that Sorata has to do it for her thus you sort of get the idea where the title of this anime comes from.  Sorata ends up inspiring the other students of Sakura Hall with his actions and in the process they become friends and work on projects together(mostly anime and video game related) which strengthens their bonds and friendships as they experience success and failures pursuing their goals.

The story is well told, the animation is really nice to look at, and voice acting really well done. I certainly hope they decide to continue the anime with a second season as this first season was definitely one of the best anime for winter 2013.

5/5
