Weird in an entirely harmless and wholly entertaining way (if you're into that sort of thing) is Inubaka: Crazy for Dogs. If there's anything cuter than those big-eyed, tiny-skirted Japanese manga characters, it's Japanese manga puppies. And this book has both. It's the story of an ultra-naive teenage girl, Suguri, who decides to move to Tokyo on her own and gets a job at a pet store. Turns out she has a sixth sense when it comes to dogs. She's crazy for dogs! It's a ridiculous construction and results in all kinds of awkward dog-related situations, as well as miracles of veterinary medicine that save the lives of the cutest puppies ever drawn. Sure it's silly, but come on who doesn't love puppies?
