When you shed a tear during an anime, you know shit's going down (or at least, almost shed a tear). "The Pet Girl Of Sakurasou" is the next thing closest to the likes of "Toradora" or "Clannad", its a high school romance anime with love triangles and intensified dramas galore. Its animes like these that many people would turn a blind eye to, but if you're an avid fan of romance dramas and such, "The Pet Girl Of Sakurasou" is a brilliant addition to your collection. Brilliant characters, a simple yet effective story, strong morals about life and some other great segments make this one of the best animes of 2013. Plus, if you've taken a liking to Mashiro right at the start of the anime, its a safe bet to say that you'll be taking this one with a smile on your face the entire f**king way. "The Pet Girl Of Sakurasou" shows us school life at its best, but can help us get emotional when it really counts.

The anime's very energetic cast and crew.

The first opening theme is "Kimi ga Yume o Tsuretekita" by Ai Kayano, Mariko Nakatsu and Natsumi Takamori, the seiyuus of Mashiro, Nanami and Misaki. Its a decently energetic song, which is a nice fit to the first half of the anime I suppose. However, out of all the songs used in the openings and endings, I think it's the least attractive choice. The first ending theme is "Days Of Dash" by Konomi Suzuki, which is, like the opening theme, an energetic song...though this one has a slightly catchier tune to it.

The second opening theme is "Yume No Tsuzuki" by Konomi Suzuki once again, and while it is a step down from her first ending theme "Days Of Dash", I do think that its decently paced enough as an opening song. The second ending however, is the best song of the four, and that 's "Prime Number -Minna to Deaeru Hi-" by Asuka Okura. The freaking tune to the song is SO addictive, and the song itself is also catchy as hell. The ending animations also has everyone bopping their heads to it, so I do it most of the time when I listen to this song on the road (people think I'm crazy).

Rating: 8.5/10

This is some really deep shit right here. Not only is "The Pet Girl Of Sakurasou" really high on energetic vibes (Misaki's antics are really quite contagious) most of the time, its serious when it needs to be, and the characters are some of the best I've seen in a high school romance/comedy anime. Character development is really strong for some of these here, and you can see the changes that happen throughout the anime...though honestly, everyone changes for the better here. Through hardships and trials, these guys all develop into magnificent characters to the end, and the love relationships between some of the characters were pretty intense too, in my opinion. The characters are just great, the story develops well and is full of hardships for out characters...but that just helps in character development. The anime is funny at times, and seriously, it concludes in the best way possible. This is what a great anime is all about!

The best question of all time.

Kanda Sorata is a very interesting young man. He likes cats, and he hates being looked at differently by others. He is living in the dorms of Sui High, which does not allows pets. Unfortunately for him, he picked up a stray white cat on the streets, which he names Hikari. Upon the discovery of Hikari, the principal gives Sorata a proposition. Either he moves out of with his cats to the outcast dorm Sakurasou, or stay at the regular dorms, but ditch the cat. Sorata chooses to move to Sakurasou without a second thought, which made his reputation take a dip. However, life isn't all bad in Sakurasou, until one day when the dorm supervisor, Chihiro sensei, tells Sorata to pick up a cousin of hers. This cousin is Mashiro Shiina, a world renown painter that is a genius at what she does. HOWEVER, it turns out that besides painting, Mashiro doesn't know how to do anything else. She can't dress herself, she has no common sense, and she doesn't know how others think. Thus Chihiro proposes that somebody take care of Mashiro, a duty known as "Mashiro duty". Guess who gets to babysit her? Sorata says hi.

"The Pet Girl Of Sakurasou" is a textbook example on how to make an impactful anime. From start to finish, "The Pet Girl Of Sakurasou" never failed to impress. Even now, whenever I watch the graduation episode (episode 23), I still get hit right in the feels.  If you want an anime that summarises all that is high school, "The Pet Girl Of Sakurasou" works very well. Oh and lets not forget, romance fans will love this as well.
