Anime Review: Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo



The school romantic comedy revolves around a second-year high school student named Sorata Kanda who lives in Sakurasou, the dormitory for problem children at Sorata’s school. One day, Mashiro Shiina—a cute girl who happens to be also a cosmopolitan, brilliant artist—moves into Sakurasou. Sorata thinks to himself that he should protect Mashiro from the weirdos at Sakurasou, but Mashiro has a surprising secret: she has no idea how to take care of herself. She gets lost if she goes out, and her room is a complete mess. Sorata’s dorm mates designate him as the “master” of Mashiro, and thus, an ordinary boy and a brilliant girl must live like “a master and his pet.” (Source: ANN)

First thing first, the anime has cute arts and some comedy aspect to it. Then the story is very inspiring its about sakurasou resident chasing their dreams. You have the mangaka, the voice actress, the game developer, computer programmer, the anime artist, and the playwright. They say that sakurasou is for troubled students, but in fact they are the best at their own fields. It’s really amazing how hard they work to achieve their dreams and yeah of course there are love stories in the mix… Which I don’t care for. So, it’s a great anime. This anime will make you laugh, cry and you would want to try your best in life. I’m fascinated by the fact that the anime is not so cheery cheery, but it shows you that life isn’t always fair and it will knock you down some time. I strongly recommend it.

Overall Rate: 8/10
