+Anima is an Epic manga series about people that co-exist with two souls, one of a human, and one of an animal. These people are the Anima, and they are hated by society everywhere, and have difficulties settling and keeping homes. The +anima can also turn into part of that animal, (Ex: Tail or wings ect.)
Above is Aaron Newt. Aaron is not an Anima, but a scientist who has hunted the anima for their animal spirits, trying to create an artificial anima for regular people. An experiment went wrong, and Aaron absorbed many of the anima spirits, he now lives as a monster, hardly even able to speak without his medicine. (hence, the goblet.)
About this creation
Above is Blanca. It is a compilation of many anima spirits gathered and put into one pure form, made by Aaron Newt. It is the source of Aaron Newt's monstrous form. (Blanca holds all animal spirits, and isn't even a being, just more of a 'holding object' for the spirits.)
Cooro is one of the main characters. He travels with Nana, Senri and Husky. He has the Crow +Anima.
Daisy is a minor character with the +anima of a dog. She doesn't do much but run around trying to get people to rub her on her head.
Husky is another main character, He's a prince from Sailland with the Fish +Anima.
Kazana is an Eagle +Anima, and is a rebel, trying to destroy the monarchy in Sailland.
Lyra is one of Cooro's child hood friends. She has the sparrow +Anima, and earns money by winning races.
Margaret is a house-wife with the deer +Anima.
Nana is one of the main characters. Despite her small and prissy disposition, she holds the bat +Anima, and it constantly haunts her.
Rapid, twin brother to Shera and just brother to Daisy. He's an acrobat with a squirrel +Anima.
Rose is a traveling merchant that sells jewelry. She has the cat +anima. One of the best supporting characters.
Senri is an exile tribesmen, that travels with Nana, Cooro, and Husky. He holds the Bear +Anima.
Shera is brother to Daisy and Rapid, and performs as an acrobat. Also holds the squirrel +anima.
Sheriff Hopps is, well, a Sheriff. Oddly enough, he holds the Alligator +Anima. Who knows how that happened.
Si Mukar is a Chieftain that exiled Senri. He holds the Wold +Anima, and has commune with his so much, that he can turn into a FULL wolf. He's a powerful adversary.

This last one's not in the books, but eh, what the heck. This is Newt Raiden, (My character) who is a trader in the +Anima world. He's a Gecko +Anima. Please ignore the wand-ish thing.
This is my first time using Bricksmith for a post, but I just had to make these. +Anima is an excellent book series and I recommend it 100%.
It's like harry potter with a few differences, there's four magical guilds, wizards, enchanters, sorcerers, and warriors. There's no school. The magicians draw their power from haertstones which determine your guild and it's a bit more complicated with a lot of main characters floating around. Here's a link to the website http://www.cindachima.com/index.htm
No, because the animal spirits live -inside- them. They can call on them in times of need to sprout wings, or scale walls, or rip out someone's intestines, and many more. (I personally like that last one) Plus it's about the life of the hunted, they're always on the move, and never safe.
