Muco is the sweetest, most lovable dog in the neighborhood. This sparkly-nosed Shiba Inu lives with her owner and best friend, Komatsu, a glassblower who lives in the mountains. These two companions have wonderful adventures, from going on walks to playing in the pond in front of their house. No matter where they go or what they do, Muco will always love her best friend Komatsu!
Charming show about a man, his friends and his pet dog Muco.
Words cannot describe how this show made me feel. Sure, the animation may be rubbish and it is intended for children but I just can't watch Muco without the dumbest smile on my face. The voice acting is great, Muco is adorable and the soundtrack is suitably upbeat.
It helps that every episode is only 12 minutes so it doesn't drag on; not to mention the second ending theme is easily one of the best ending songs from any anime I've seen.
The best bit is that when you've finished watching you can go onto the
official Muco twitter (She's a real dog) for even more good times.
Muco makes me a happy camper and if you don't feel the same then you probably have a heart of ice.
Despite the odd art style, this was a very enjoyable anime to watch. This is one of those aniime that are good to watch after a long day when you need something silly and undemanding of your attention and time.
All of the characters are likable and each episode is always relatable in some way. Muco is especially adorable and never fails to make you smile with her silly dog antics! If this anime doesn't make you want to hug and spoil your own pet, nothing will!
I'd definitely recommend this to anyone looking for something easy going to watch. With each episode only being 12 minutes
long, it's easy to find the time to kick back and watch an episode or two. I don't think anyone would be disappointed after watching this.
At first Itoshi No Muco might strike you as a strange low-grade anime, but given its lighthearted nature, lovable characters and wacky antics, it'll give you a lot of enjoyment.
I haven't read the manga so I'm not sure how well it compares to the original source material, but based off the 25 episode series I can safely say that there's a lot of humour and fun to enjoy, even if there is some repetition.
The only thing that I found jarring was that sometimes the framerate for 3D shots was sub 23.97fps which gave it an awkward flicker effect. Early reviewers from Japan are saying the
DVD doesn't have this issue, so I'll leave that down to encoding (from downloads) and how far away I was when receiving it via satellite (Japan to the UK)
It's a shame there's no distributors lined up to take this show to an international audience, but the DVDs are available (Currently about $25 per 2 episodes 28/03/2016)
Pets are the perfect companions, both in real life and in anime. Anime pets add a hint of cuteness to just about any series, while also portraying complex emotions like loyalty and love. Their roles can even play a part in the direction a story takes. Get ready to cuddle with these anime pets.
