Count D has opened his petshop again, this time in Tokyo's Shinjuku!

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.

No where near as good as the original.

Now that Leon is gone, I have barely any interest in reading it. The new guy just seems like a replacement because he is in ways similar to him. Count D had more depth to him in the prequel and I loved the interactions between him and Leon. I've only read a couple chapters of the Tokyo series and I have to say that the relationship between D and the new guy is shallow at best. Leon was never mentioned so far (except for the special chapter), so he seems to have been forgotten. So hopefully the mangaka has plans to bring him back again soon.

Happy that beloved Petshop have a sequel; 10 vols really doesn't satisfy XD But I'd prefer Leon back; what makes the soul of the manga is the couple Count D-Leon. They're just soo cute! Hope he'll be back ^^

PSoH was a psychological horror series with a relationship between Leon & D that went from annoyance to kinda friends to "best friends raising a kid together" (Leon's little bro) to arguably Leon falling for D (I mean he quit his job & abandoned his family just so he could return a drawing? Sure sure. & he didn't seem to want to kill him like the way Howell hunted down his father).

Well, this is one of many MANY mangas I've read that suffered from Genre Shift. The horror & gore were pretty much completely stripped from the stories of people who visited the petshop. The 2ed grievance was that D & Fei-Wu lack the dynamic relationship of D & Leon, indeed they never really get along as time goes on. Lastly, when Leon finally DOES show up, D is already on a plane to another country. Fujoshis will also be irritated to learn that this series had no BL subtext whatsoever. (argh, it's just like what happened to With Love from Eroica).

The series SORT OF continues, in the form of a prologue centered around Soufu D (grampa). Chinese scans for the series have sort of stopped, but the series is apparently still going. Maybe only after it ends will we get back to D. One of the biggest gateways is that she's working on so many series at once that there can be a year between volume releases.

At least the art is still good. ::sigh::

Personally, I would skip this series outright unless another true sequel comes out of it. I would however recommend the Passage Han prequel, even if you can only find it in Chinese.

Read a few chapters and they were okay, but...

...not gonna go on unless Leon comes back. It's been said already, but the strange, ambiguous push-pull between Leon and D was what made Petshop of Horrors really shine. New dude (forgot his name already, or maybe brain rejected it out of spite) isn't a quarter as endearing as Leon.

I liked this sequel, but not as well as the 1st one. The stories are entertaining, and it is a good read. I, like others, miss Leon. This is actually the main reason I like it less than the 1st. Great characters should always be brought back in sequels like this. I do have to recommend this one though, since it is a very good read - especially if you liked the 1st series. I love the blend of horror and comedy. People who haven't read the 1st series will most likely enjoy this as well.

If you liked the first series you'll probably also like this, even though the polar opposite of D (Leon) is gone.
Since the series seems to be ongoing I guess we'll probably see him again though.

Since the OVA series is merely an adaption of the manga series which originally was meant to be a blend of humour and horror I think the rating 2 is a bit of an overreaction but well... we're free to express ourselves.

A nice sequel to the series. For those wondering about Leon...fufufu. Wait and see. The ending leaves me hoping that sensei will continue the series.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
At the very least Leon needs to catch up with D! He was so close >_<
Don't leave us hanging, sensei!

great artwork, to great storyline, each chapter is fill with something suspenseful and horror and yet, it has a almost nostalgic feeling to it.
i can't explain very well but even if you aren't a big horror fan, this manga is more than just horror. it has comedy, fantasy, sometimes, even a little romance. i really recommended this book.
