A talking dog is a beautiful story that you should have dreamt of as a child. But if you have forgotten about it, this is a reminder of that fable story. This is the story of a dog that talks, but ordinary people cannot hear his voice.

The main character, Mametaro, is an adventurous crossbreed dog. He loves his owner, Iku-chan and his girlfriend Hanako-chan very much. However, he just cannot stand Iku-chan's friend, Akiyoshi.
During this story, which will be told from Mametaro's point of view, the warm days of spring are finally here. The school and the riverbank, which is actually just an ordinary neighborhood for people, seems like a mysterious world that extends infinitely to little Mametaro and his friends.

STORY (6/10)

the series did have some sort of loose plot, but mostly ambled along at a pleasantly slow pace, focusing on the lighthearted adventures of the main character, a mixed-breed dog named Mametarou and his friends! each episode fits a pretty standard pattern: Mame and friends are curious about something, they end up read more

I simply love those series. It's hart warming

Story: 8/10

As far as story goes it's actually hard to talk about any story here since every episode it's the plot of it's one, but it follows the episode tittle and doesn't go any sideways with any co-plot that would get you lost. Also the last 3 (2,3,4,) episodes do get a bit more serious, but still manage to be hart warming in the end.

Art: 7/10

The art it's nice the only minus is when they decide to show dogs in the pixel form which comes a bit ugly.

Sound: 9/10

Excluding the opening and the closing theme which i read more
