Hiromi Nozawa is a young sixth-grader with a fairly normal life -- and a talking pet dog named Junkers. With her mother at work all hours of the day, and her father constantly overseas, tension in the household is building up quickly, making Hiromi concerned that her parents might not stay together much longer. Luckily, Junkers has the ability to grant three miracles... but are miracles strong enough to save Hiromi's family?
Taeko Okajima lives a nondescript life in Tokyo performing office duties in the day and then coming home in the evening to listen to her mother’s remarks on the phone about her unmarried status. In a bid to escape the monotony, Taeko decides to visit the countryside she once loved as a child and spend time on a safflower farm run by relations of hers. But her journey awakens memories she thought she had long abandoned, and Taeko must once again decide the kind of person she truly wants to be.
When the loveable Perro was banished from the kingdom of cats (for the treacherous crime of saving a mouse!), his wanderings led him to the house of Pierre, a young lad who was mistreated by his greedy brothers. Thrown out in the cold, the duo then traveled to a great kingdom where they laid eyes on the princess Rosa, who soon would be wed to a wealthy suitor. Who best to marry her but ... the son of a poor farmer?! With Perro's help, Pierre might just stand a chance -- that is, if he can fool the royal family and defeat the evil Lucifer, who wants Rosa all for himself!
Although the style of these two movies is really different, if you think about the plot you can find some similarities. If you consider that Perro is just a cat then he is just like Junkers - he has wants to help a person reach his dreams he never thought can be done. Perro and Junkers can talk, they are smart and they even can do miracles both in their own way; Junkers is helping a girl to bring her family back together, yet Perro is helping Pierre to start a new life. Both anime are filled with funny events and the endings are really thoughtful.
