hello all PSoH lovers! i enjoy Petshop immensely, and though the ending was sad, i am growing to like it as i think about it further.
anyway, just wanted to say hi and introduce myself. also, D isn't a vampire anything, it says so in volume 10. a lot of people thought that for a while until volume 10, and i wondered myself about it.
OT: i'm glad that they didn't continue the OVA series, because i found that they simply took out a lot of what Petshop was about. they lost the humor and the fun of the manga, and just turned it into a horror anime. there are better straight horror animes out there.

Hello hello. I love Petshop of Horrors^_^. I've read up to 9 and I can't wait to get the last one. Ten-chan is so cute, and D is way awsome. Its probably one of the better Manga's out there.
At the beganing of the series, The pets always had rules that the owners had to follow. But later in the series they just forget about the rules, so I don't think that was very well thought out. But its great other than that.

I absolutly love this manga, I own all 10 volumes.
The end of book 10 was a little confusing I had to read it 2 times in order to understand everything fully. Actually it was more like. "Wait did that just happen....Let me check.....Still says the same thing....Let me check again....."
OT: I've recently been looking into buying the anime series off ebay or amazon, though I heard it didn't do the manga justice.... Anbody know if that's true?

I think they have a NEW Petshop of Horrors manga series...? Not too sure about this one... Sorry. ^^;
I do know there's a manga out there that kinda takes after Petshop of Horrors (read: Count D-look-alike) but it's done by a completely different mangaka. =) Maybe it's worth checking out though.
<Note: The new series IS done by the SAME artist>

In my opinion, the anime takes a more serious approach to the stories found in the manga. No chibies, hardly any gags, etc. But considering there are only four episodes, I didn't think it was that bad. Plus, they didn't have much time to work with either. Seiyuu and OP are great though.

I just finished reading this some time ago... and yeah it became one of my faves pretty quickly. I was really enthralled by the dark and surprisingly deep stories and really liked rereading them. The developing relationship between D and Leon was also a plus (and I see it in a certain way... They so acted like a married couple at times. )
The series had a kind of beautiful and depressing feeling that got to me at times and a few stories were nicely complicated so I neer was quite sure if i had grsped te point.
Yeah, I wasn't too thrilled with the ending though.. I suppose I sort of understand it, but quite a few events are left in the dark... I wished to have known more.
OT: I've seen the OVA too.. I suppose it's okay if one hasn't read the manga and is probably something that would spark some interest (to readf the manmga), but I didn't really see it offer anything new.. Although it was nice to see the characters animated and hear their voices :
