Despite endless research, the human mind remains a mystery to this day. Unknown to the public, there exist special individuals who are able to dive deep into the minds of people and even manipulate their memories.

Gifted with this ability, Hiroki, Tsukasa, and Satoru are among those who use their power to commit crime under the orders of their leader, Katsuragi. The three step into the dangerous territory of the human mind in order to destroy their assigned targets while striving to keep their own minds and memories safe.

This is another title from Studio Geno, which until now has always brought great anime, even though it is a recent studio, and I can say that Pet is probably the best one ever made by him.

Pet is one of the best animes of this season, the anime production surprised me a lot, all the elements that were created to give the illusion of the mind according to the work are incredible, it is easy to understand the mystic that happens here, thanks to the script of the anime, which maintains a great evolution until it reaches the final episodes.

I am a huge drama fan and I really loved this show. What a beautiful ride throughout the whole show. I am really ashamed that there are people ignoring this show just because of its art style etc. This is a must watch show from the director of Baccano and Durara. I knew from the beginning that the story will be explained episode by episode and before they will play with your mind. It is a rare kind of show and unique also weird in a good way. I have my most favorite character from this show Tsukasa. This is years old manga yet it read more

Compelling psychological thriller, with bizarre, mind-bending scenarios, flawed and interesting characters, and satisfying twists and turns the whole way through. It's mature, surreal, unique, and shamefully underrated.

Even so: 6/10

Many people will drop it after episode one, because the narrative withholds too much information. That's understandable. And many others will drop it because the characters are unlikable. That's fair, too. The show focuses on some selfish and ugly people, and that can be hard to watch. But I think the story is worth pushing through those things.

Honestly, though? I kinda wish I'd dropped it, too.

Not for the reasons above, but because Pet's visuals are so read more

The 3rd and final list of Geno Studio's works after Studio Manglobe's bankruptcy demise with Kokkoku in 2017 (the less popular one) and Golden Kamuy in 2018 (the more popular one and still going forward with Season 3), with this show, we have seen enough of Geno Studio's capabilities as a whole maintaining a less stellar version of Manglobe, but it's definitely a ride to say the least.

This season, the mystery-psychological mash-up of genres produced 2 similar shows: ID:Invaded (the more noticeable but underrated) and this show (the less noticeable but forgotten after the 3-episode rule), both focusing on the human psyche and the psychics' read more
