Anyone heard about and/or read this fabulous horror/humor manga? smile.gif
It's everything a good story needs. Mystery, humor, suspense, drama, horror, an androgynous Count managing Chinatown's shady Petshop and a bad-ass LA cop who's always the first to grab the chance to "bust D's ass". *__*
It never ceazes to amaze me how the mangaka comes up with these lugubrious tales of hers. Not to mention the shameless innuendo between our two male lead characters. At least.. I think the mangaka's a her.. O___O

Years of Released: 1995
Status: Completed
Author: Akino Matsuri
Artist: Akino Matsuri
Genre: Comedy, Drama, Fantasy, Horror, Mystery, Sci-fi

Summary
A Japanese horror manga created by Matsuri Akino. The series focuses on the eccentric Count D, proprietor of a mysterious pet shop located in the heart of Chinatown, and the numerous patrons who visit his shop.

Details: Count D is the mysterious caretaker of an exotic pet shop in Chinatown. Each pet purchased from the shop comes with a contract with three major points. These points differ for each animal sold, and breaking this contract usually results in dire (and sometimes disturbing) consequences for the buyer, for which the pet shop claims no liability.

Individual chapters of Pet Shop of Horrors are often based on these consequences, and are each written as a stand-alone story, usually introducing one or more new characters in each chapter. With the exception of the main characters and their families, it is rare for a character to carry over to a later chapter, providing the series with a very episodic nature.

The detective Leon Orcot is used to tie the chapters together into an ongoing plot, usually in the form of a subplot within each chapter. Initially he suspects Count D of malicious criminal activity and using the pet shop as a front for drug trafficking. As the series progresses, he learns more about the pet shop and Count D himself, entering into a strange friendship of sorts with the Count as he works to uncover the truth.

A sequel is in the works to by released in the USA by Febuary 2008. TOKYOPOP has acquired the rights to this sequel and will call it "Pet Shop of Horrors-Tokyo"

Customers often find that their new pets change their lives more than they expect, fulfilling their dreams, or realizing their nightmares.

You've read 1-8?? ...heh, I thought PoH only had 7 volumes. biggrin.gif But you read them, the first reader! Only.. you aren't registered.

OT: I demand you do, if you want to hold a civil conversation with me about this. tongue.gif

Oh, you joined! biggrin.gif;; Sorry for not replying earlier. Couldn't get on the forum for a while.

I've read up to volume 4 which really isn't much. sad.gif But then again I live in the Netherlands where it's hard to get your daily dosis of anime/manga. *big sigh* *__* But it's such a great series...


OT: I've also seen the 4-part OAV anime. XD I love D's seiyuu. Very sexy.

I think there is implied yaoi, but I'm not really sure as I haven't had a chance to pick the manga up. Its ten books?! wow.
I just love the artwork and the different stories.

(Woo! My first post here ever!)
I adore Pet Shop- it's hilarious and discomforting by turns. Thank god Tokyopop is being regular in their release schedule. *_*
It doesn't seem like D cares enough about people to fall in love with anyone, man or woman.



OT: I haven't seen the OVAs yet. Are they worth buying?

biggrin.gif Wow, all of a sudden this thread's "bombarded" with interest.

@Blahblah: Like dreamcatcher said, it's only implied. ^_~ But it makes for hilarious situations.
Btw, you can find it on TokyoPop's site if you don't mind buying online



@Ferfy Caroline: I don't even think he has a sex what with him being what he is. biggrin.gif
But I will always believe he began to thaw at the end. X3 (Chris &) Leon helped a great deal, of course.

OT: As for the OAVs, they're almost exactly like the chapters from the volumes, storyline wise. So if you don't have any problems with seeing instead of reading those chapters... smile.gif Your choice. I presonally love the OAVs (although it's more centered around horror and mystery - barely showing the humorous side), D's seiyuu makes me melt. *__* Toshihiko (??) Seki.

Btw, Ferfy Caroline welcome to the forum - enjoy your stay! biggrin.gif

laugh.gif You mean to say all J-rock stars are androgynous? Hmm, you've got a point. X3
They're all hot. And have sharp claws. *___*

A new series? You mean new as in really new or a follow-up of PoH?

T_T The ending's really... open and sad. Hate it when that happens. >__>

Yesh, Count D's cool beyond words. My first experience with Petshop of Horrors was through fanfiction, so I had no idea Count D could be so... cute. ph34r.gif
Honestly, that wo/man's got like eighty different personalities/masks. And he likes to switch just like that. !! *snaps fingers* The humor's fabulous, it surprisingly goes well with the horror theme. cool.gif

Does anyone know what D is?
People say he's a kami, in other words, a god.
He has a sister, who died in the same chapter she came in, which is a shame. She's like the female version of him, and Count D actually is a he. She's just like D . . . with boobs. And she's so cute! I can't wait for the last two books to be released.
I wanna see what happens to D.
Does anyone like Ten-chan? *waves* I do!

laugh.gif I only call him a wo/man because he's androgynous and since everybody says he doesn't have a sex... like an Angel. biggrin.gif

You don't know what's going to happen at the end? sad.gif Poor thing. I didn't really like the end cuz it's sad and open. Although it gives the reader/writer quite a time imagining and making up a sequel. *___* Poor Leon though...

I like Ten-chan, too. laugh.gif He and Leon's antics are just too cute. Anybody like Chris?
