My Life as Inukai-san’s Dog (Episode 9) – Doggy Panic

What happened?

Pochita has to beg for Karen to prove that he belonged to her. At least, it wasn’t the “come home” test! Once that was resolved, the class started making preparations for the school festival. They needed to decorate their room to turn it into a dog cafe. All of the class brought their dogs to school too, so that they could be acclimatised to the location. Karen, however, sat in the corridor making paper chains. She didn’t seem to fit in with the others and she wasn’t too good at making paper chains either.

Mike arrived to see Karen. Her class were having a hot dog stall and she’d been busy testing things out. Then, she took a wrong step and ended up covered in glue. Karen went to get a cloth, but the other dogs smelled the hot dogs on her and chased her through the school. In the mess, Pochita had gotten stuck to her skirt which she slipped off. However, she still had Pochita’s lead so ended up dragging him through the school. She tripped over and knocked herself out. Pochita managed to pull his paws free and then helped her hide from some boys. She showed him a photo of Karen with her first Pochita and commented that she thinks he might be a human trapped in a dog’s body!

What did you think?

Well, I was not expecting Mike to put it all together first. Maybe, it’s all those concussions she keeps getting. Seriously, that girl might need a CAT scan to check for brain injuries. Anyhow, we saw Karen with her first Pochita and learnt how his death impacted her. Once more, they seem to be emphasizing how much of an impact Pochita returning to his human form might have on her. If they make him decide to be a dog forever, I’m going to be quite disappointed. I just can’t see anyone making that decision willingly.

We also saw a brief glimpse of Usagi who clearly still has plans on taking Pochita/Sensei back. I feel like this side story is probably going to get in the way of any actual resolution to the human-being-turned-into-a-dog main story. These are only twelve-minute episodes and I’m a little disappointed they didn’t push things further already with the girl in the lab coat rather than having Mike running through the school in her panties and getting another concussion. We’re going to run out of time if we’re not careful and I can’t see this getting a second season, as inspired as it is!
