Synopsis

Ponta is a Labrador retriever puppy, the Koizumi family's pet. She's full of energy and usually up to some kind of mischief. But when Grandpa Koizumi, an amateur inventor, creates the Guru Guru Bone, Ponta's curiosity causes trouble. She nibbles the bone... and turns into a human girl!

Surprised but undaunted, Ponta ventures out of the house and meets Mirai Iwaki, the most popular boy at school. When Mirai saves her from a speeding car, Ponta changes back into her puppy self. Yet much has changed for Ponta during her short adventure as a human. Her heart races and her face flushes when she thinks of Mirai now. She's in love! Using the power of the Guru Guru Bone, Ponta switches back and forth from dog to girl... but can she win Mirai's affections?

Guru Guru Pon-chan is a story about a female dog who falls in love with a human male and she is given a "guru guru bone" that lets her transform into a human. If you can accept that this is a strange love story between an animal and human i can recommend you to read this.
Some of the chapters are quite fun when they are dealing with the fact that she is indeed, a dog but in many cases they are just playing with the humour factor of how a dog would act in human situations.. Many of the romantic scenes fall flat very read more

Being a lover of dogs I just had to try this out. Mostly expected it to be silliness considering the premise. And it does have plenty of laughs. But there's some good emotional content to it as well. Worries of caring for someone you can't quite understand because you are so different but still sticking with it because there's love. Wrap it up with some adorable artwork and some continually doggish behavior from Ponta and I'm charmed.

Both include cute animals and lots of funny events. Main protagonist of Guru Guru Pon-chan is a young female dog named Ponta, who falls in love with a human boy, while Chi's sweet home follows the life of little kitten Chi and her family. Both are really sweet and a great choice for someone who loves animals.
These series are very different from each other, but in both of them the main protagonist is a dog. Ginga Nagareboshi Gin has a lot of fighting, adventure and excitement while Guru Guru Pon-chan is a romantic comedy about young female dog who transforms into a human and falls in love with a human boy.
