30 Day Anime Challenge – Day 15

Day 15: Favorite Animal Sidekick, Pet or Summoning from any anime

Animal sidekicks and the sorts are usually seen in the shonen genre which is something that I do not watch regularly. However, there is one favorite of mine and that is Happy from the anime series, Fairy Tail, who serves as somewhat of a sidekick to Natsu, one of the main characters for the show.

Happy was found by Natsu when he was still an egg that felt out of the sky. He was taken cared of and has grown to be Natsu’s trusty ally in every mission. The two are very close to the extent that they treat each other as family.

Happy is a favorite animal character of mine because of his background story despite being used as a token comic-relief character throughout the entirety of the series. He is an Exceed which originated from the kingdom of Extalia situated in Edolas.

The Edolas arc was quite an emotional reveal and addition for Happy’s character in regards to his origins. In Edolas, his kind are treated as divine beings which gives him an “iffy” situation when it came to his relationship with Natsu.

Happy is an adorable and funny character to watch. Seeing him and his fellow Exceed, Carla, uncover the secrets of their origins was quite interesting and emotional to watch.

Is Happy a good sidekick? Aye, sir!

  1. Happy is definitely a popular pick for this question and I completely agree. He’s a fantastic sidekick (difficult to call him a pet given how much character and independence he has). Thanks for sharing.
