From Del Rey:
Ponta is a Labrador retriever puppy, the Koizumi family's pet. She's full of energy and usually up to some kind of mischief. But when Grandpa Koizumi, an amateur inventor, creates the Guru Guru Bone, Ponta's curiosity causes trouble. She nibbles the bone - and turns into a human girl! Now Ponta lives two lives: one canine and one human!

Ponta is just sooooo adorable!! the whole story was pretty cute and funny, I loved it ! But although I know it's a comedy so I should just enjoy it and overlook the just keeps on bugging me. I mean the stories good enough that the plot holes shouldn't matter but it just doesn't make sense how the author uses dog years to show how ponta ages faster than humans at the start of the story but then the author just suddenly doesn't use that anywhere else in the series. Also the ending didnt quite tie up all the loose ends, and left me wondering about many things. The ending also seemed kinda too fast paced or sorta axed. I think the author made it like that to be funny and yes it did make me smile but I couldn't really get used to the sudden change. But ignoring the minor plot holes I think it was an amazing read so if your looking for something cute and funny but at the same time quite deep and not shallow and meaningless I RECOMMEND THIS TO YOU.

This is the first shojo manga I have ever read and liked.I usually only read yaoi and shounen manga but this might make me rethink my opinion on shojo.this manga is suitable for any body girl or boy,man or woman.I read this in the bookshop.I wanted to buy it but they only had volume 2 and 4 so I read it secretly without them noticing.I'm trying to find the remaining.

Probably one of the weirdest shoujo manga's I 've read. It doesnt take itself seriously, which is one of its best features. Its pure comedy gold with a realistic amount of seriousness when the situation calls for it. I just finished it and there's this goofy grin that probably wont leave my face until I degrade myself by reading another shoujo manga of this type that I have set up higher expectations to because of Pon-chan, thus leaving me terribly disappointed and hollow inside. I dont hand out tens but really.....

But I learn to love Pon-chan and Mirai. Pon-chan does things that are very embarassing but at the same time very cute. I love Mirai. Hot, kind, loving, and loyal.

This is really a cute manga with powerful emotions of love from a dog. Ponchan, a 3 months old dog fell in love for the first time, her affections goes towards Mirai, a 17 years old human boy. Her love is so strong she is willing to become human for him. Just because she's a human girl from time to time does not mean she can make Mirai falls for her. Join Panchan in her journay to not capture Mirai's heart with a pure love towards him, but to show us all how powerful a dog's love can get!!
