Go To






  • Dog Stereotype: Subverted. She isn't the cuddly, awkward Dachshund of pop culture, but instead she acts more similar to how Dachshunds actually behave.
  • Faster Than They Look: She's quite agile for a dog with such short legs.
  • Masculine Girl, Feminine Boy: She's tough, mean, and athletic while her crush Sora is a cute and sensitive Yorkie. For emphasis, she wears a blue collar while Sebastian wears a pink hair bow.



  • Dude Looks Like a Lady: He's small, cute, has a high-pitched voice, and wears a bow on his head.
  • Hair Decorations: He wears a pink bow that ties up his fur.
  • Masculine Girl, Feminine Boy: He's the timid, girly foil to Sora's rough and masculine one.
  • Mistaken for Gay: When he starts talking about his adoration of his owner, the other dogs mistake him for talking about a male dog.
  • Mistaken for Romance: In one episode, Sora mistakes him for being in love with Mametarou.
  • Oblivious to Love: He doesn't recognize Sora's crush on him.
  • Uncatty Resemblance: Subverted as a plot point. His owner is masculine, aloof, and a bit of a jerk. The dogs thought that he was Sora's owner, not Sebastian's.


  • Anime Accent Absence: Averted. He has a strong accent in-universe.
    • Unintentionally inverted in practice. Even though he's supposed to have English as his first language, in the anime it's quite clear that his voice actor can't quite pull it off, using "me" where an English-speaker would say "I" (possibly a translation hiccup, see Japanese Pronouns below), and pronounces "white lady" as "hwite rady."
  • Betty and Veronica: He's the Veronica to Mametarou's Betty. He's rich, haughty, and sophisticated.
  • Gratuitous English: He's from England and sprinkles his speech with English.
  • Japanese Pronouns: He uses "me", showing his difficulties with Japanese.
  • Malicious Misnaming: He calls Mametarou everything but his name.
  • A Spot Of Tea: He's shown drinking tea as a gag in episode 7, fitting British stereotypes.
  • Trophy Child: Jack is a Rough Collie stud who is treated more like an object by his owner.


  • The Big Guy: The largest dog in the cast, being a huge Siberian Husky.
  • Gentle Giant: He's a sweet Husky and the largest of the cast (even more-so than Hanako).
  • The Stoic: Calm, gentle, and soft-spoken despite having a very deep voice.
