Based on the classic novels by Alexandre Dumas and winner
of the worst character pun name, Dogtanian is the poor kid who travels to Paris
to train to be a Musketeer - sorry Muskehound – as he dreams of being a great
swordsmaster and one day serve the King of France.
4. Menchi (Excel Saga)
No, you haven’t clicked on the
Top 5 Cats buy mistake – Menchi really is a dog and the most unfortunate of our quintet of pedigrees!
3. Inu-Yasha (Inu-Yasha, A Feudal Fairytale)
Although points must be discounted as he is only a
half-breed of dog, there is no denying he must be in this countdown of canine
critters. Half human and half dog-demon, Inu-Yasha is one of the coolest
hounds ever to grace an anime or manga. Unlike his full dog demon
half-brother Sesshomaru, Inu-Yasha bears human qualities such as trust,
friendship and love but also maintains his fierce canine half. This makes
for a real dog-eat-dog fight when the siblings clash.
2. Ein (Cowboy Bebop)
Although he appears to be a normal Corgi, Ein is in fact a data-dog developed at an illegal laboratory for unknown purposes. Signs of Ein’s origin are displayed occasionally, but no-one seems to notice them - instead just thinking Ein is a normal pooch even though he can drive, answer the phone and hack into computers!
1. Sherlock Hound (Sherlock Hound)
The greatest detective in the world of literature is also
our top dog. Maintaining all of his elementary detecting skill and
trademark pipe and deerstalker in his anime interpretation, Sherlock is also
much more of an action hero too, often putting Lupin III to shame.
