    I really REALLY enjoy Count D. His love for animals reminds me of myself. The way he was willing to sacrifice his life for a innocent creature was 100% ME! If only that stupid cop hadn't of pissed me off I would have five starred this!!!! Ugh!!!! Why do you like him Count D..... WHY!!!!!!

    Только я настроилась на жесткач и общую атмосферу хоррора, как пятая глава подкинула типичную «рождественскую» историю (конечно, в антураже странного мира, где живут неведомые зверушки, воображение имеет силу воплощения и все вдыхают благовония неизвестного происхождения).

И блондинчик-детектив слишком быстро включился в эту игру, несмотря на все возражения :Р Рассказ про милую кошечку – это притча в картинках. Финал приятно удивил, я всю дорогу опасалась внезапного треша (ну, с такими-то первыми главами). Потом история о рыбке и ее хозяине. Ее я увидела раньше, чем прочитала, но тягостное ощущение ровно то же, что от экранизации. Это из раздела несчастных судеб, одержимости, неспособности двигаться дальше, психических расстройств в результате душевных травм. Не знаю, что из этого пытается вылечить граф, а что – косвенно вызвано его же усилиями. Последняя глава тома опять посвящена совместному времяпровождению детектива и графа, где они по воле судьбы (а точнее, в результате чьего-то сталкерства :Р) оказываются вовлечены в приключение, про которое неясно – сон это или реальность. Не моя тональность, и резкие перепады давления не по мне. Темы поднимаются более серьезные, чем в «рождественской» истории, но особенного отклика не вызывают. hisashiburi

What will the dentist and the don say? :) Business continues at the pet shop as two very different cats pick out two very different owners while a mermaid shows a voracious appetite for love, which the Count is more than happy to indulge, even while Leon tries to solve a mystery which may involve murder. The Count, however, has a softer side towards animals who no longer roam the Earth whom no one recalls other than him. In the meantime, Leon Orcot finds his feelings for Count D becoming even complex while he’s drawn into the count’s strange world. Horror and humour went hand in hand in this volume, the mermaid providing the horror, Leon providing the humor, while Count D and the cats offered both. The mysterious pet shop owner’s relationship deepens with the detective hunting him when the two find themselves thrown together more and more often. The artwork continues to be stunning in the panels with Count D, the cats wearing human forms, and the mermaid along with her prey spread across the pages. Leon, the kitten, and the kitten’s human proved some cuteness, revealing that visitors to Count D’s pet store can find happy endings when they accept the terms of their contracts. For deepening the human drama involving those who chose to wear human faces along with those fooled by them in the same aesthetic style as the previous volume, I give this four stars.

    Chilling and enthralling, and strangely, sometimes extremely cute and funny! These stories are all really rather predictable in the end, but magnificently drawn, and frightening in spite of their forgone conclusions. I liked the last chapter of this book in particular, it held a mirror up to society's disregard for the balance of the natural world, and echoed a haunting and lonely consequence for our rash negligence. I adore Count D! He's so cheerfully mysterious, and so chillingly unaffected by Chilling and enthralling, and strangely, sometimes extremely cute and funny!

I adore Count D! He's so cheerfully mysterious, and so chillingly unaffected by the strange and gruesome deaths piling up at his doorstep. The great twisted irony, and the main moral of this story, is that none of the customers would have had any problems with their pets, if they'd only have kept up their end of the contract they signed - though Count D is selling these murderous man-eating creatures, he is completely correct when he says that he cannot be held responsible. The lesson is to always keep your promises. I have a feeling that detective is going to get himself into trouble one of these days, even though Count D appears to like him - after all, as he said at the end of this volume he said it himself - "I do enjoy your company. One of these days I may not let you leave..." Prophetic words? Only one way to find out!

    Pet Shop of Horrors continues in the second volume where we get an additional 4 stories that range between the realms of humor, mystery and horror.

Dragon: A story about a misplaced dragon egg that is expected to hatch by accident on XMAS instead of the Chinese New Year risks killing the family that brought it home... and possibly the entire city of Los Angeles is under danger too. It is up to Count D to ask for Detective Leon for his help in order to sneak into the house and safely hatch the mythical beast in a remote area before things go crazy. A humorous story, we also start to see flashes of attraction between both characters, even though neither party wants to admit it yet. Dice: A homeless con artist rescues a kitten without realizing Lucky is very special. Unable to care for her, Count D appears and takes the kitten away from him. Thinking little about the odd change of events, the guy ends up getting arrested by Leon for petty theft and bailed out by Count D. Little does he know, Count D is giving him the chance of a lifetime by adopting a strange little girl who might change his life for the better... as long as he doesn't break any of the tenets of the contract. A cute/odd story with a different kind of protagonist than other stories so far. I find it interesting that we get meet a low life criminal making a contract with the Count and the way despite being a lazy slob, there is a good side to him. Delicious: The original manga version of the same chapter in the OVA series. The anime stays fervently truthful to the original source material. I personally didn't enjoy this episode as much as some of the other ones, but I suppose the animators chose this story because of the horror elements. Destruction: Another story featuring Count D interacting on a more personal level with Leon. Our perpetually igneous detective has spotted Count D visiting a natural history museum one evening while carrying a suitcase. Assuming he is planning on selling opium, he follows him inside and gets teleported to a prehistoric world with extinct animals. Where are they and can they escape this strange dream before Leon harms any animals by mistake? A very different story from what we are getting accustomed in a pleasant way. Overall, the stories remain fresh and fun to read and I award it 4 stars.

    While Leon was introduced in the first volume, he truly starts to become a character of his own in this one. And in the first chapter, Leon becomes inexplicably and inexorably (and involuntarily) tied into D's world with the birth of Honlon. While the chapter has several humorous moments (the dominatrix dentist, for one, who makes me cringe and hold my teeth in fear), it's also the first glimmer that we see that D does have the capacity to care for humans, as the entire adventure is predicated o While Leon was introduced in the first volume, he truly starts to become a character of his own in this one. And in the first chapter, Leon becomes inexplicably and inexorably (and involuntarily) tied into D's world with the birth of Honlon. While the chapter has several humorous moments (the dominatrix dentist, for one, who makes me cringe and hold my teeth in fear), it's also the first glimmer that we see that D does have the capacity to care for humans, as the entire adventure is predicated on getting the right egg to an elderly buyer so that his grandchildren have their Christmas miracle (and, y'know, the city isn't destroyed by a gigantic dragon). The theme of somewhat caring for and wanting to help humanity continues with the next two stories — the girl who needs a seeing eye dog; the man who saves a kitten and that kitten becomes his literal lady luck. But by the story about the man with the kitten, we start to see that hard edge of D again, where the animal trumps humanity. By the last story, with the woman who became a mermaid, we once again are reminded that D is not on humanity's side. But, perhaps more interestingly, we start to see some development in Leon, who in the first story trusts D, and who, by the last story, has grown on D enough that when asked what he sold the man, D simply answers "a mermaid."

    This wasn’t as great as the first volume. Personally, I don’t care much about the overarching plot with Count D and the cop. The running thread with the cop trying to bust him for selling dangerous pets is fine. What I find boring is the chapters that resolve solely on the dynamic between their two characters. I would probably love this ten times more if the author had just stuck to an anthology type format. In particular, I thought that the dragon story was super pointless.

    I think this will become one of my favourite manga series ever. I love Count D and all the creatures and stories these volumes explore. Creepy, curious and delightfully odd- I'm sure everyone can find something in this story.

    DNFed after the first section... It wasn't a creepypet story like in the first volume. I'd wanted more about the shop and shopkeeper/detective characters, but when I got it I didn't like it.

    My favourite story in this volume is "Destruction", it never fails to make me cry. As a cat lover, "Dice" is also a highlight for me. It doesn't get much more adorable than Lady :)

    All the people who receive the pets see them as humans. Why? I mean, magic, sure, but what point is the author making with this device?

    As the previous one, this volume kept its usual course, but every story had a very different turn of events and the characters were visibly made more credible. Also, the art style has developed quite a bit, and the angles and frames were chose more dramatically. I can't wait to see how it will continue its storyline!

    Pet Shop of Horror revolves around a magical pet shop in Chinatown that just happens to sell pet’s that aren’t like your everyday pet. Each volume is divided into a chapters and each chapter tells a single story of an encounter with this pet shop. Some end up happy while others not so much. In the 2nd installment of Pet Shop of Horror we are given four new short stories of what happens when people bring home pets from the store. While the main focus is who is really Count D it’s the little bits Pet Shop of Horror revolves around a magical pet shop in Chinatown that just happens to sell pet’s that aren’t like your everyday pet.

In the 2nd installment of Pet Shop of Horror we are given four new short stories of what happens when people bring home pets from the store. While the main focus is who is really Count D it’s the little bits we get that is intertwined within the stories. First up we have Count D’s trip to the museum with the officer who Is determined to prove he’s a bad guy. In this story the pet in question is actually a living dragon that he’s been nurturing for years. Next up is Dice which is my favorite of the four it follows the story of a girl who parents are murdered and she’s left with temporary blindness. She seeks out a seeing eye dog as well as a bodyguard. Returning home with a man who Count D is determined will protect her at any cost and forms a lifelong friendship. We also have the story of the guy down on his luck with the kitten Lady who turns into a child. Last was the story of the woman who falls off a boat and is turned into a mermaid that proves more than her husband can handle. I couldn’t sleep last night so I thought I would try a new manga Pet Shop of Horrors sounded interesting so I figured might as well give it a shot. It’s this creepy concept of a pet shop that happens to not sell traditional pets. Each of the pets really fits into the owner life giving them exactly what they needed at that point in their life and some may not end happy ever after. I have to admit I enjoyed the concept it’s unique and fascinating I had a hard time putting it down because I wanted to know what would happen next. I’m anxious to read the next book so we can learn more about the pet shop but to see what comes out it’s door next. While it may not be a super popular one it’s worth checking out the chapters are perfect for a quick little way to break up the day or just binge reading.

    Pet Shop of Horrors is a manga by Matsuri Akino. It is set in the heart of Chinatown. Enter Count D's pet shop, a place where you can find a multitude of pets. These pets can range from cats and dogs to the most exotic, but they often will take a form to match a person's deepest desires. The mysterious man running the shop will be willing to sell you these animals, but under contract. These contracts often have three terms, varying with each individual pet.

The mysterious man running the shop will be willing to sell you these animals, but under contract. These contracts often have three terms, varying with each individual pet. If any of these circumstances are broken, the pet shop is in no way, shape, or form, responsible for the consequences that would result. This series is certainly a unique read. Each chapter often focuses on a different customer, so the series has an episode like feel to it. In each of these chapters, however, there is a sub plot that always occurs. This subplot is actually part of the main story, so it's suggested that you pay attention to it. Most of these stories can turn out somewhat messy, but are they happy or sad endings? No one can even tell. This story is about human nature itself, with a good amount of environmentalism hidden in there too.

I’m wondering how many more exotic creatures they can come up with for this series. I also like how the relationship between Count D. And Leon is forming. Leon is constantly hanging out at the pet shop trying to bust Count D. For something, but really it seems the excuse is that he just really doesn’t have anywhere else to go.

    It took me until this volume to notice that all the chapter titles start with 'D.' That brings to mind the names of The Endless, but don't let me digress. The chapters in this volume are: "Dragon," "Dice," "Delicious," "Destruction." D and the detective do a lot of bonding in the first and last stories. "Dice" may have been my favorite, but since there were cats I'm probably biased. "Delicious" had a mermaid and "Destruction" apparently had prehistoric time-travel.

    I might have given the manga four stars - if I hadn't read it right after xxxHolic, a much better manga with a similar premise. PSoH is a real classic among manga, that's true, but it concentrates too much on the "guest starring" characters of the various short stories and not enough on Count D and Leon for my liking. The stories that are about D and Leon are great, the rest is too much about... morality and learning a lesson etc., they are not really scary or mysterious, despite this being a ho I might have given the manga four stars - if I hadn't read it right after xxxHolic, a much better manga with a similar premise.

    After a very good start with the first four chapters in Pet Shop of Horrors, Volume 01, the story deteriorates. Although there is more revelaed in the behaviour of the main characters, the chapters themselves are... well... more boring. It is still, though an enjoyable manga in general.

    Better than the first in the series. I love the dynamics between the pet shop owner and the cop who will not stop investigating him and his store. The pets were fantastic. I love that each chapter can just stand on its own as if it were a collection of short stories. It reminds me of the Gremlin movies that I loved watching when I was growing up. Horrific yet campy and silly.

    I'm enjoying this series immensely. They're gory and chilling, with lessons to be taught throughout. I love the Count. In a weird way, he's kind of endearingly sadistic. And his bonding with Leon is beyond adorable!! Uh. Heh. I digress. Anyhow, just a quick thing - don't get attached to any characters in this book!!! They will die, and you will be sad.

    While this is a brillant series, I found this particular installment to be a bit rushed and quite predictable. Perhaps the fact that the holidays are approaching perhaps blurred my views; I didn't think the segment had a true FEEL to it.

    Some more cool and horrifying creatures, and a lot of fun with Count D and Leon together. They make an entertaining couple. Sometimes the creatures are just creepy and intriguing, but sometimes they're really sad too. The sad ones are always good stories, but... just so sad.

    This one was much less scary than volume 1. Count D also seemed like a Gary Stu, but I like him regardless. Also, now that I've finished all ten volumes, I see that these aspects have set a precedent followed by the rest of the series.
