Petshop of Horrors

Show Summary

In an anonymous city in Chinatown, a mysterious pet shop stands nestled between restaurants and pop stores. The storekeeper, known only as "Count," offers a marvelous selection of rare and unusual animals with the ability to manifest their masters' hidden desires, unfulfilled wishes and hopes for a second chance - but there's one catch. The buyer must sign a contract agreeing to follow a specific set of instructions for the animal's care and maintenance. Breaking the terms of the contract results in serious repercussions for which the shop assumes no responsibility-so, let the buyer beware. Character Profiles Count D The mysterious and androgynous manager of the Pet Shop, D prides himself on selling Love and Dreams. He truly cares about his creatures and genuinely wishes his pets and their new owners the best ... but he is also always aware of the dire alternative outcome that is possible should his instructions about care and handling be ignored. D has quite a sweet tooth and as Leon has discovered, D is all too eager to discuss his pets over a slice of dessert and a flavorful cup of tea. He has a pet of his own, a bizarre little creature which is part bat, part rabbit. No one knows what the 'D' in the Count's name is short for. Leon Orcot A detective on the police force, Leon believes that Count D's pet shop is somehow related to an otherwise seemingly unrelated series of crimes. He doesn't have proof linking D himself to the crimes, but Leon is determined to find out the truth about the pet shop. This guide also has information of the mangas that have been released by TokyoPop. Any additional info will be contributed to the Pet Catalog. "In the heart of the city, you will find Chinatown; a mysterious place where rare and valuable commodities are in abundance. Welcome to my petshop; tonight you will find something you desire." -Anime Intromoreless

  • Athough a wonderful show with great animation, though it is nothing compaired to the original manga series.

    Petshop of Horrors is a wonderful manga. Unfortunately the anime is not as long as the nine book manga series, though it does do it justice. The animation is beautiful and the humor is dark. The animators and producers picked two wonderful stories from the series, though I wished they had done more. Medusa was a wonderful tale I wished they had animated. Although I thought this was a wonderful anime, I think the manga is far superior. This is a wonderful companion if you have read the series, though as a stand alone, some of the mystery feels lost. It is also distinctly lacking in that regard. There isn't enough there to make it a full series, just two short stories where you don't even get to know Count D and Leon. I recommend reading the series before seeing this, just so you can get the full flavor this series has to offer.moreless
  • Witch hunter Robin lovers, come here.

    Strangely mysterious and gory at the same time, petshop of horrors is basicly four storys in one series. It brings you to the front door of a mysterious petshop in Chinatown, run by Count D. Not much is know about him, besides his family own the petshop for a long time, and he loves sweets. The reason the petshop comes into play is that it's famous for selling rare animals, some are even legendary (Kirin and Medusa). However, each sell has some kind of contract the buyer cannot break, or else.

    A dectective, however, manages to connect the petshop to several mysterious deaths. each time he tries to frame the count, it is always ignored. why? and how is the count doing this? some things may be never answered.moreless
  • Dark, twisted, disturbing, shocking....and highly enjoyable.

    This sensual, disquieting anime lingers in the mind. Count D is a mysterious Pet Shop owner who has more about him that meets the eye. He sells odd...original pets, which can give thier owners dreams...or nightmares.

    The animation is beautiful and the stories are haunting. It captivated me, weaving its spell. The center of the story is Count D and the hot headed detectie, Leon who is sure that it is the count that is the culprit behind his customers deaths. [due to the pets.^^] There is also a homoerotic feel with Count D towards Leon!^^ [Makes me happy...yaoi fangirl here.^^]moreless
  • Lovely people

    This show is so orginal with its characters and story line. Count D is one of those characters who is so mysterious but yet you know everything about him. Does that make sense I hope it does. Anyway I would watch this show over and over again just to see the amazing designs and drawings of the characters.
  • This has gotten bad ratings, but I really don't know why. Overall I think it's really good, well thought out and really makes you think.

    Petshop of Horrors is one of my favorites mangas. Each chapter or episode is it's own story, usually following a new character and the pet they just got. The series is meaningful and deep, each chapter will make you think and really have an effect on you. Usually the chapters have some lesson to them. It's eerie and a little gothic.

    An amazing part, in my opinion, is that even though it's very serious, it still has parts that are really funny. It has the perfect balance of seriousness and humor. It's funny enough to make me laugh out loud.
