This series was probably my first extremely favorite manga. The anime was a bit lacking, but the manga was incredible and the artwork is beautiful.

Sorry if this topic has been posted, I looked around and only found old locked topics.

The original in my opinion was far better than Tokyo, though Tokyo had it's moments. I wished they'd do a really good updated version of the anime, I believe it has potential.



Years back before Tokyo Pop shut down they used to have a booth at Wizards of the East Coast's con in Philadelphia, PA. That's where I first found this manga and got really interested in manga in general.

What about you guys? ^_^

I LOVE Petshop of Horrors. Still one of the best manga I've ever read, and one of my all time favourites.

PoHT SUCKS though. It should have never been written.

I liked the OVAs too... I was sad that they didn't do my favorite of the first few volumes though. I think the pet rabbit was the best...

Petshop of Horrors is one of my all time favourite series.

The artwork is beautiful, the characters very memorable and the storyline is wonderful. Even though it is episodic, everything ties together in the end, and it is set against this mysterious, dark backdrop that keeps you wondering.

The ending was so bittersweet and very open, keeping you on the edge of your seat until the end.

A classic.

The sequel on the other hand is garbage. Don't read it.

I love this series though it's been a while since I've read it (should dig out my books). It has all of the good stuff: humor, horror and an awesome relationship dynamic . And I love the art xoxo.

The sequel has some moments (I only read what TP released) but without Leon it's . . . lacking. I'm surprised it ran longer than the original.
