I am back this week with another quick review on this new to me manga series I am reading. Since I didn’t do one last week it seemed only fair to do two this week. This is a quick review meaning I don’t go into many details and I try not to give to much away. I personally don’t mind spoilers but I know that some do.
Back with four more standalone stories and four more ‘exotic’ creatures from the pet shop. Even though the stories are standalone I love how the hesitant friendship forms between D and Leon within each story. Like he still so suspicious of him but he can’t help but to visit and dare I say enjoy his company. This volume features a dragon, a lucky cat, a big ass fish, and a weird dream Leon has that D visits in. I still really am enjoying the series and I enjoy that as the series progresses we get more of an inside look into D’s personality and we learn more about him. Slowly but surely.
Same as before four more standalone stories. This time a pretty bird, a dog, missing kids, and a teddy bear? I freaking love how I am constantly surprised by what is happening and I never know what is going to happen next. But I am also noticing that within every story there is a lesson to be learned that the characters are sometimes brutally taught. But there are legit lessons tucked in. it also feels as if we are getting more of a sneak peek into what really happens behind the closed doors of the pet shop. It’s so fascinating.
This is the first series that I read that is in the horror genre and I am very satisfied with it. It’s not too gruesome and it’s not too docile. It’s a really great balance that I am devouring as quickly as I can. I think this would be a great first step into the horror genre and you should definitely give it a chance.
Have a great day!
