    Re: Mascot Characters

    Ah Pikachu. It was such a rage some years ago. I remember the uproar because of the rumours that Pikachu is related to demon worship etc when i was in elementary school. The teachers even go as far as warning us about "the danger of pokemon" in class ^^;;;

    Re: Mascot Characters

    ^ I'm pretty sure deep down the teachers had a favourite of their own. XD

    My mom told me that Japanese elementary schoolers learnt katakana from Pokémon. I believe her. Its influence is powerful and my seventeen year old brother is still a fan.

    Ryuk from Death Note. Okay, he's not exactly cute but he's still a prominent figure. When you ask someone to list three things relating to DN, Ryuk will almost always be on the list.

    ^ Oh how can I forget Ryuk he's so lovable
    ...and there's Rem, Sidoh and Gelus too on Death Note.

    Also some others which mascot characters where named for their own series...
    - my favorite hamster Hamtaro
    - and Doraemon (though this cat without ears is a robot not an animal)

    Re: Mascot Characters

    Plum of Chobits certainly serves this purpose:
    http://i152.photobucket.com/albums/s...its_sumomo.jpg
    http://www.freewebs.com/torturedpain...0&%20Plum.jpeg (the right one)
    http://94.100.19.194/55%2F66_MLZFZ%2Fchobits6_095.jpg

    She's a ~20cm tall "Laptop" (in a time where computers usually look like humans they're still labelled desktop or laptop depending on their size), programmed on quite flashy behaviour and to make special moves in stand by. Also forces her owners to make a morning workout and functions as a hyperactive alarm clock.

    Puu from Yu Yu Hakusho. Spirit "monster" hatched from the egg given to Yusuke (protagonist) in the ordeal of being revived after dead. Said to be mirror image of Yusukes soul.

    The hit toy in my chlidhood, Furby, is totally a rip-off of Puu

    Re: Mascot Characters

    Hiruma's dog, Cerberus, from Eyeshield 21 is somewhat of a mascot, though the team literally has a mascot in the Deimon Devil Bat.

    Re: Mascot Characters

    Oh! My favorite is Kon from Bleach, hehe~ He isn't really helpful during Ichigo's battles but I'm too used to his own Shinigami Illustration Book segments at the end of each episode, lol.

    P-chan from Ranma 1/2.

    He is Akane’s pet and he really enjoys being her pet since when he is in that form he has some pretty good benefits (like getting kissed by her or getting to sleep on her bed).
    Thank you so much for my cute avy GenjiChan!

    Veronica from Brave 10. She is Jinpachi’s companion and pet.

    Sasuke’s owls. They are loyal and extremely useful when delivering information between missions.

    I'll be honest and say I haven't read very far with it yet, but so far his mischeif has been cute.

    When I think of Dragon Ball I tend to think of Shenron, the wish granting dragon.
    His picture always tends to be attached to the logo and the opening of the anime, which I guess is the job of a mascot.
    Plus the many other animals used: Roshi's Turtle, Oolong etc...

    And although not mascots as such, I love the animals in Naruto.
    I always think of the 3 animals associated with the legendary Sanin, and Kiba's character needs Akamaru.

    Re: Mascot Characters

    Number 2. He is the official mascot of the Seirin team in Kuroko no Basket. This furry character is one of the cutest dogs I have seen in manga/anime. He is so adorable~ His eyes and his similarity with Kuroko (one of the protagonist of the story) are the reasons behind his name.
    Thank you so much for my cute avy GenjiChan!

    Nagoya from Tonari no Kaibutsu.

    He is Haru's pet. Nagoya is a rooster that Haru adopted as his pet. It lives in a chicken coop in the school where Haru goes to and he is the best rooster ever!

    Somehow I knew you'd be posting about Nagoya when I saw you made a post on this thread.

    But really, Nagoya is an awesome chicken. Even though it's only a few episodes into Tonari, Nagoya feels like Chocobo for Final Fantasy series for me. It colors the series up in its own way, and there is even an episode dedicated for Nagoya. It's usually boring when the plot doesn't really concentrate on the characters, but the episode for Nagoya is just as cool as other episodes. I'm looking forward for more of Nagoya's appearance to help with Shizu and Haru too! XDD

    And of course, Nagoya has this awesome theme song for himself. So cool!
