Petshop of Horrors
This is an excellent manga and will appeal to anyone who likes the occult, magic, fantasy and mystery. However, creepy stories alone won't keep an audience and it is the relationship and interactions between Detective Orcot and Count D that keeps me coming back for more. The manga becomes much more emotionally charged and light-hearted with the inclusion of a character such as Orcot. I would have given this manga a rating of 10 if it wasn't for the rushed ending. The mystery surrounding the Count proved to be quite anti-climatic.
This is one of my favorite mangas. I became instantly interested and couldn't stop reading!...I just wish the ending differed a bit and made it so it didn't leave me wanting to know more!! ugh. haha
i've just read the 4th book, and i'll tell you guys... those who love the horror genre for manga, this one really gives me chills, i mean this is the best.c",)
Best modern fantasy ever!
It's very difficult to find a modern fantasy that isn't stereotypical or boring. Pet Shop of Horrors is anything but stereotypical, and it's certainly far from boring. The ideas that drive it are refreshing and unique, and the art is exquisite. The interconnected stories that make up the plot are like moral fables, showing how human foibles can make the most beautiful things ugly. There's plenty of horror and dark content, but there's also romance and some surprisingly light comedy. No matter what you want, you'll find it in this series -- Akino-sensei really has created a masterpiece!
The ecological core of Cound D's personal philosophy is very compelling. He's a sort of crusader that embodies nature's ferocity and indifference, as well as its grace and beauty. How he struggles with his lineage and his family's ideas is what I find most interesting; it is evident that with Chris and Leon, D has begun to feel affection for the human race, not just hatred.
Incredibly addictive and interesting stuff. Don't miss this!
