From the list of simulcasts to view this summer season, there doesn't seem to be a lot of dramas to pick from. However, of the few that Crunchyroll does have, Is There A Vet in the House? is definitely a must see whether you're a pet owner or not. For those summer days spending time with family, this drama is fitting for the whole family and might even tighten the bond with it's story line of just how much the family pet can sense changes in the household. Though it's categorized as a drama, there are plenty of times where the comedic side is shown. Takanori Jinnai, who plays the main character Shiba Kentaro, balances his role between the funny and serious sides of his character quite well.

Is There A Vet in the House? focuses on a veterinary clinic run by Shiba Kentaro with the help of his mother, Nurse Hanae, his assistant and part time veterinarian Tamaki Shina, and daughter Hinako. There is nothing really extraordinary about this clinic however, Shiba, himself, has a way of telling how the animals are feeling beyond what any exam could tell you. It doesn't just end there, the pets are the start to the real problem going on: the pet owners themselves. For the sake of the animal, Shiba gets involved in the situation in order to get the pet back to health or, at least, that's half the reason. Shiba has a thing for the ladies and if the pet owner just so happen to be a pretty woman, it's love at first sight for him. He comes for the pets but stays for the females. Sure enough, in the end, the situation gets resolved. The owners improve or become better for the situation and the pets themselves becomes healthy again. As for Shiba finding a new love, well there is always the next pet.

I'm not sure how many Asian Dramas there are that involves pets in there shows but I'll go ahead and say this is one of the best ones out there. It will having you laughing one minute and have you thinking a few things in your own life the next. A plus about this show is that you don't have to worry about missing an episode as there is no continous story. Every week is a new situation unrelated to the previous one. You might learn something new about a character but it doesn't carry over into future episodes. Though they aren't shown as much as their human counterparts, the animals are too adorable when they do appear. The only thing I wished they did was show more variety in the types of pets people have. If you are ever interested in checking out this show it's simulcast every Saturday at 2am EDT right here on Crunchyroll.
