I've been recently addicted with another series called Doko Demo Issyo and features a cat who wants to become human named Toro Inoue and his friends Kuro, Ricky, Suzuki, Jun, and Pierre.
I've known about this cat for years now but never
checked it out until I looked more into the series and started
becoming really interested in it. Soon I started to fall in love
with this series and I want to find more about it. Unfortunately
it isn't very popular over in the west but it's crazy popular over
in Japan where Toro is the mascot of SCE (Sony Computer
Entertainment). If you wanna learn more about the series go over
to the Doko Demo Issyo Wiki,
they know about all of the game more than I do.
