I enjoy most any manga in the darker themes, and I'll collect a series if the art style is to my taste along with the characters and story. This series has been one of my favorites for a while now. Favorite genre (dark but not gory) combined with beautiful artwork with lots of detail and often elegant layout that are visually stunning. I really do think Matsuri Akino is a fantastic manga-ka and story-teller. This was the volume that had long been missing from my Pet Shop of Horrors Tokyo collection, but volume 3 is now my favorite. The story about a scare of avian flu was particularly enjoyable, though all of the stories in this volume are fun to read. Great dark fantasy series!

I read this series years ago and somehow managed to avoid reviewing it until now, when it's out of print. It just goes to show how good the series is.

Pet Shop of Horrors features, as the name suggests, stories centering about a certain pet shop in Chinatown, whose customers frequently meet messy ends. It isn't incredibly scary, though, and gets to be part comedy after a volume, but it does include quite a bit of blood, gore, etc. It is an entirely episodic manga apart from a 3-chapter finale, and each chapter focuses on a customer of Count D's (the shop's owner) and how their new-found pet affects their lives. The Count gives each a pet for a reason, and you have to see if they change appropriately after receiving them or not. Some stories are great, whereas a few might not be as appealing (I for one dislike Dark Horse in Vol. 4 in particular). In general, the stories are very well written and make you interested in what happens in them rather than makeing you want to write them off as filler. A part of their charm is that unlike other episodic manga, this one stands out in its gradual development of its leads throughout all chapters instead of just at the end.

The first main character of the series is Count D, of course, the mysterious, incredibly feminine-looking sugar addict who acts incredibly creepy/cryptic half the time (think Yuuko from xxxHolic) and... spends the other half acting like a henpecked wife towards/arguing with the second main character, Leon. Leon is a grouchy, slightly sarcastic cop who would like nothing more than to see the Count behind bars (at first anyway). Then midway through the series we are introduced to Leon's younger brother as well as a cast of recurring pets as well. If you're anything like me, you'll grow extremely attached to all of them by the end of the series.

For those who might want to know, the series does contain a fair bit of romantic subtext between the two leads(which is even poked fun at in one of the extras). It's nothing major, and one could definitely write it off as nothing, but if you know that you won't touch anything that vaguely hints at similar relationships, just know: you have been warned.

The story takes place in L.A., and its location and general localization make it a great choice to give to someone who's just getting into manga, particularly if he/she likes shows like the Twilight Zone or the X Files. There are only a few instances in which honorifics are included (I believe I counted 6 throughout the series), and all of them can just be ignored if you don't know their meanings (they really could have just been left out completely/ translated to Mr./Ms., etc., but oh well).

As for the overarching plot, it remains largely nonexistent until the final volume. As stated before, though, the individual chapters and character development are enjoyable enough to where you shouldn't mind. There are a few plot inconsistencies throughout the volumes that make me think the author didn't plan on a certain ending plot-twist until later (re-read the final chapter of Vol. 4 and the third "Flowers and the Detective" story after reading vol. 10 to see what I mean), but they aren't that bad. The ending, while a bit confusing, solves the main mysteries that the series had left hanging while creating a few more questions in the process. It also gives a good conclusion to the personality development the characters have received since the start. PSoH contains environmentalist themes as well that are made VERY apparent towards the end but don't come off as very cloying.

The artwork itself is detailed if a bit dated (the series came out in the '90s) and is drawn in the "shojo-style" (though technically the series is a josei- i.e. is intended for an older female audience). The characters, both male and female, human and anthropomorphic animals, look attractive, though admittedly, the art is the series' weakest point.

If you like horror manga with a good dose of character development, you should give PSoH a try. You might have trouble tracking some of the volumes down for a reasonable price (it is OOP after all), but it is well worth it. It also has a sequel out, PSoH: Tokyo that follows the Count several years after the end of the first series, so if you liked this part of the story, try that as well.

Pet Shop of Horrors is for me what Junjo Romanitca is to Yaoi Fangirls- AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
When I had first started reading manga I ran into this series several years ago. I loved it so much that I colledcted the entire series and would reread each of them several times over. If you are looking for a series that is just as funny as it is dark then this is the series for you.

I hope you appreaciate this series as much as I do.

This is a great Manga series. I was sad to see it go out of print but now that its back in the form of Pet Shop of Horrors Tokyo I'm super happy. Book ten has an amazing ending to the whole series...but there is some lack of continuity between this series and the tokyo series....like what happened to the baby D?
