Beyond the mist-filled alleyways in the concrete crevices of Los Angeles' Chinatown hides a mysterious pet shop, home to many bizarre yet friendly creatures. The store's proprietor is an enigmatic young man who goes by the name of Count D.

Count D welcomes those who feel lonely and wounded through the doors of his shop, claiming to sell "love, dreams, and hope" in the form of the fantastic beasts that lie within. Each creature comes with a special contract accompanied by a set of rules. However, he warns customers that he cannot be held accountable for any consequences of breaking the rules.

Short-tempered detective Leon Orcot traces the source of several crimes back to Count D and what the former considers to be a pet shop of horrors. Determined to find proof that the Count is a criminal, he begins to pay regular visits to the shop.

This describes Petshop of Horrors in a nutshell, it's a simple premise that may not seem for much at first, but never fails to surprise you, as soon as it starts getting repetitive, it may pull something you didn't expect to the point it's starts getting hard to even call this a horror Manga after a while, as stories range from tragic romances to political crime thrillers, and morals delivered in a crude way ...

A fantastic horror manga with mystery elements, supernatural creatures & a comedic tone?
This ethereal story is not only aesthetically pleasing, it's also filled with heart-wrenching moments, surreal tales & philosophical lessons.

Combining horror, mysticism and wisdom into a stirring tale of love, dreams and hope. Petshop of horrors is a spellbinding & thought-provoking episodic story. The concept itself is intriguing; a peculiar petshop in the uncanny alleys of Chinatown owned by a mystical & unfathomable young man, the aesthetic is captivating ; the graceful beauty of Chinatown, the magical designs of the characters & the compelling gothic atmosphere.

A very 'fun' but confused manga. The title and the early chapters set the premise up clearly: it's essentially a manga about a 'monkey's paw' scenario where the main character Count D offers a different character their heart's desire in the form of a pet, while the protagonist Detective Orcot tries to figure out what's going on.

But that's not really consistent: it seems that the mangaka fell in love with the character of Count D and at some point became reluctant to have him play a villainous/punitive role. Eventually, it's not really monkey's paw scenarios, more of a catalyst to the events of the story, ...
