Pet Shop of Horrors: Tokyo, Volume 1 by Matsuri AkinoPet 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 peoples 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.
