Synopsis

A smoke-filled alley in Chinatown harbors Count D's Pet Shop. The pets sold here aren't your everyday variety and the Count prides himself on selling Love and Dreams in the form of magical creatures that come with an exclusive contract. But buyers beware. If the contract is broken the Count cannot be held accountable for whatever may happen. A fascinating and macabre look into the very soul of human nature.

Reading this series, one might think they can smell the sweet scent of cake and incense that lures unsuspecting customers to Count D's exotic Chinatown shop. Like moths to the flame, readers turn the page over and over in a constant search for the truth behind the seductive illusion that Pet Shop of Horrors is.

A collection of vignettes, much like Aesop's Fables of old, the short stories that make up the manga are timeless in nature. Though we are not new to the idea that humans a...re destroying the world, Pet Shop takes a very unreal turn, not attacking man for it's domination, but for read more

Petshop of Horrors draws you in from the moment you pick it up, that is if you don't mind all the gore in it. Yes, it can be a bit bloody at parts but it ends up being part of this series appeal. This isn't your normal horror story (if it was I wouldn't be praising it, I hate horror). There are many parts that make the reader actually think about what they are reading and while some parts may be a bit hard to understand the first time it's worth reading a second time to understand the meaning behind it.

Both of these mangas are about a shop or cafe with a mysterious owner, which gets mysterious customers. These episodic manga's are about the stories connected to the customers, and sometimes to the owners. Both have a mysterious horror feeling, and both are an awesome read.

They are both considered twisted. Both main characters seems to have a series of unfortunate events where ever they go. Also in both manga not all events have a happy ending and basically both Fran and Count D. really do mean well and want to make their customers happy.
