    A couple stories ended, well, not happily, but with some positive outcome Is the Count softening, lol Oh my God, being pregnant with a cicada is the most horrifying thing I ve seen in the past three days.

    Pet Shop of Horrors Tokyo, Vol 1 is a unique manga take on the horror genre It follows multiple characters within each chapter after they purchase a pet from a mysterious pet shop in Tokyo The pet shop is owned by a man known only as Count D Count D has ordinary pets, like cats and dogs, at the pet shop However, he also has magical creatures All the characters who enter the pet shop request a pet that will help accomplish something Most people want to be happier, or be protected Cou Pet Shop of Horrors Tokyo, Vol 1 is a unique manga take on the horror genre It follows multiple characters within each chapter after they purchase a pet from a mysterious pet shop in Tokyo The pet shop is owned by a man known only as Count D Count D has ordinary pets, like cats and dogs, at the pet shop However, he also has magical creatures All the characters who enter the pet shop request a pet that will help accomplish something Most people want to be happier, or be protected Count D assures his customers that their wish will be granted after purchasing the pet.I really liked this book I admired the fact that each chapter had a different character in it I thought this added variety to the kinds of people that enter the pet shop I also liked how each chapter was a cautionary tale Even though people s wishes were granted after purchasing the pet, their wish was not fulfilled in the exact way that the customers wanted I like how Count D always tells his customers, we will prepare a pet that will be just right for you In a way, what he says is true because the pets always help their owners and do fulfill their wishes.I would recommend this book to anyone who likes a unique take on horror It does have some violence and gore, but it is also very psychological Despite these classic horror aspects, I think the cautionary tales have a unique and creative outcome

    Honestly, it s not as good as the original Pet Shop of Horrors I miss Detective Orcott and little Chris.The Count s back, but instead of the detective the owner of the building s trying to pin stuff on the Count While I liked ordinary Orcott trying to deal with the crazy stuff going on in Count D s pet shop, the new guy isn t easy to relate to He s rich and self absorbed Who cares about him And while the original was full of dark tales that had morals to them, Tokyo s aren t as dark and don Honestly, it s not as good as the original Pet Shop of Horrors I miss Detective Orcott and little Chris.The Count s back, but instead of the detective the owner of the building s trying to pin stuff on the Count While I liked ordinary Orcott trying to deal with the crazy stuff going on in Count D s pet shop, the new guy isn t easy to relate to He s rich and self absorbed Who cares about him And while the original was full of dark tales that had morals to them, Tokyo s aren t as dark and don t follow the same thread The original s were all about people making their own mistakes, for the most part It was all about the individual characters and their decisions and how they interact with those around them Tokyo s well, they tend to beabout freak accidents or the government or conditions in Japan in general Meh.Also, Orcott originally was trying to pin him for selling drugs or for the murders of various people In Tokyo Human trafficking.Overall, if you loved the original for Orcott and the character driven tales of woe, don t read it If you read it for the Count and the horror aspect, Tokyo s decent enough

    It s great to be back at the pet shop, but also in an entirely new setting All of the stories are fascinating and dark, perhaps darker than the first series Not sure how I feel about the Berlin story, though

    Review for entire series In mankind s long history, the mere fact that spirits and beasts of fortune have been told of through the ages, vouches for their existence So I don t know if the plot was meant to keep moving forward, but I honestly feel about this series now the way I feel about Supernatural.So like, at the beginning, Supernatural was all these unrelated episodes and there was a different creature in each one and you learned something new There was an ending Open and close And no Review for entire series In mankind s long history, the mere fact that spirits and beasts of fortune have been told of through the ages, vouches for their existence So I don t know if the plot was meant to keep moving forward, but I honestly feel about this series now the way I feel about Supernatural.So like, at the beginning, Supernatural was all these unrelated episodes and there was a different creature in each one and you learned something new There was an ending Open and close And now there s so much PLOT that something I really like the filler episodes.Here I feel the same Plot is nice But honestly I m just here for the artwork and the animals now I like trying to figure out what the pet is, if it s real or mythical, and what it does Then learning a little bit about it at the end That s definitely the best part of the series I could read a hundred chapters like that

    This is the beginning of a sequel series, where Count D has moved from a U S Chinatown to a Chinatown in Shinjuku Still very fascinating and entertaining, but the opening story may be difficult to read for anyone who s suffered from spousal abuse.Count D is as devious and unflappable as ever It seems that the detective s role in opposing Count D has been taken over by his landlord Not sure I like this different dynamic much yet, but time and the next volumes will tell.My favorite story is p This is the beginning of a sequel series, where Count D has moved from a U S Chinatown to a Chinatown in Shinjuku Still very fascinating and entertaining, but the opening story may be difficult to read for anyone who s suffered from spousal abuse.Count D is as devious and unflappable as ever It seems that the detective s role in opposing Count D has been taken over by his landlord Not sure I like this different dynamic much yet, but time and the next volumes will tell.My favorite story is probably about a struggling writer who visits Count D s shop looking for a pet only she could love.A bonus story about Count D s grandfather is included at the end iseh A weird tie between denouncing and romanticizing Nazi Germany Yeah It is the reason I gave this book 3 stars instead of 4

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here This is a continuation of Akino s Pet Shop of Horrors storyline, with Count D moving his her pet shop out of the United States and into Japan This is actually explained a littlein one of the author s notes, rather than bogging down one of the chapters in the manga Count D, for those of you who haven t read the first series, runs a pet shop Androgynous Count D sells normal animals, such as cats, dogs, birds and fish, but also has the truly exotic for those who are willing to purchase This is a continuation of Akino s Pet Shop of Horrors storyline, with Count D moving his her pet shop out of the United States and into Japan This is actually explained a littlein one of the author s notes, rather than bogging down one of the chapters in the manga Count D, for those of you who haven t read the first series, runs a pet shop Androgynous Count D sells normal animals, such as cats, dogs, birds and fish, but also has the truly exotic for those who are willing to purchase such things Each chapter of the manga reads as its own separate story with just a little hint of the ongoing mystery that is Count D.The stories are written rather in the style of O Henry or perhaps The Twilight Zone There is always some sort of a twist, which, of course, after you read the first one, you come to expect The pets that are bought are magical creatures and though they may appear to be human from one angle, they are all, in one way or another, somewhat monstrous This does not mean the pets are not good it just may be that they are alien and their style and means of thinking things through is different.There are four chapters in this manga The first deals with a woman who is being haunted by her dreams not to mention the reality of her estranged, violent boyfriend, with whom she had a son She is hiding out from him, though dreams of him finding her every night The pet she acquires appears to be a child, a lovely boy who seems just a bit older than her own son The boy, Chiimu, helps take care of her son, Shingo, as well as helps around the house until Miki realizes that her purchase which she originally was going to turn in for human trafficking is well worth the money she paid Chiimu even helps settle her dreams, allowing Miki to actually sleep during the night The ending of this short story is delightfully creepy, setting the reader up for the stories to follow.The second story deals with a writer who has lost her edge While she wrote a novel at the age of thirteen, she has had nothing published since then and feels trapped in her job and her life She asks Count D for the ugliest pet he has, and is sold a lizard y thing that is certainly ugly The next morning, she finds a young boy in the lizard thing s place His appearance marks a turn around in her life and ends in the now expected twist.The second story is a tale that s gone to the dogs, literally, when a young man who is part of the yakuza tries to return a dog that was bought from Count D s shop It seems the girl the boss latest fling the dog was bought for is upset that the dog prefers the young man, who is ordered to take care of the dog The dog, not surprising, is not quite what she seems and I couldn t help but be amused by the breed of dog and her name, which did play a part in the story This chapter is somewhat of a romance but also has some silly stuff in it, too the owner of the building where Count D s shop is located thinks that D is running a brothel at night and attempts to trick D into selling one of his lackies a magical animal.The final story is both historical and fantastical and centers around Eva Braun and her fanatic love for Adolph Hitler This story is probably the creepiest yet but not for the reasons you might think The pet involved is a beautiful blond boythat, of course, isn t.I very much enjoyed this series the first time around and am looking forward to readingThe art is lovely and easy to follow the translations are well done There sound effects remain untranslated but also don t appear very often in the story, so that s not a major turn off for me.If you re looking for a fun, creepy read, you could try out Count D and his horrific little pet shop
