How's this for a video game premise...

In Animal Boyfriend you take a "handsome Animal Student" (!) and help him to become a "refined" human being. Along the way you can change his personality and appearance (!!), talk with him and go on dates, and train him (!!!) to become your perfect boyfriend.

The game has well over 1 million users in Japan, mostly female according to the developer, and it's now come to the west with a full English translation.
