Puu from Yu Yu Hakusho
and
Monoka from Magic Knight RayEarth.
...
They should have a spirit baby together or something

So they have a lot of similarities...
Their appearance is similar, there are some differences but seriously, they're like cousins.
Their life's purpose is to help.
I don't think I have to type out reasons why I think either the idea of Puu came from Monoka or vise versa.

It's interesting, personally.
I believe that Puu came from Clamps idea of Monoka.
I wanna know what you think, about anything on this topic!
