Anime and Manga

  • In Maichinggu Machiko Sensei the eponymous character is occaisionally chased by animals who end up ripping her clothes off. This is in keeping with the fact that the entire universe in that series wants to see her naked.

Comic Books

In the second story, a human is actually a cursed talking animal, who need to be kissed by a female rabbit. However, he fail to find a rabbit who would kiss a human, they all just run away screaming.
