Storyline

Count D, a quite interesting pet shop owner from an area called Chinatown, sells rare and hard to come by pets to people longing for something special, but with each sale comes a contract. If the rules of the contract are followed, everything goes fine, but if someone should break the rules of the contract, the pet shop cannot be held responsible for anything unfortunate that might happen. Leon Orcot, a homicide detective, has linked many odd and unexplainable deaths together; they all were customers of Count D's pet shop, and he intends to find out why.

Really cool show!!
18 January 2003 | by See all my reviews

I recently bought the DVD of Pet Shop of Horrors, and I am happy t say that all 4 episodes on the disc are really good! I love the basic plot/background story about the shop and its pets. The animation was obviously good (well duh...its an Anime...). To me, I think the detective isn't all that great at his job. The androgynous Count adds a really strong element to the show...possibly my favorite character. Overall...it's a great watch, and I highly recommend this to any Anime fan!
