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

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"

For those who haven't read Petshop of Horrors, Count D's Petshop is a place where one can find animals from the most ordinary housepets to savage predators to mystical beasts that should belong only in legends. Customers often find that their new pets change their lives more than they expect, fulfilling their dreams, or realizing their nightmares.
