At Count D's pet shop, you can acquire any form of animal, from an ordinary canary, to more.. "exotic" creatures. Made to sign a contract before purchase, Count D claims no "responsibility for actions incurred" if the purchaser does not follow its instructions completely, as results can be fatal. Patrons of this shop are able to get the rarest of creatures, but often, their purchases are coupled with demons from their past that won't go away easily.

Pet Shop of Horrors and Strange Story focus on the time-honored classic of an item-dealer who sells you things you need - for a price. The main difference is that Pet Shop is remarkably more sinister and dark, while Strange Story is more of a moral lesson and is more lighthearted. If the story of one piqued your interest, don't hesitate in watching the other.
In the human world, there live demonic invaders named Shinma who prey upon the fragile souls of humans. The only hope for the humans is one of demonkind: Miyu, who is fated to destroy the Shinma and send them back to whence they came. Although half-human herself, as well as living amongst them as a typical high school student, she bears no compassion for those she saves, as well as condemns. Along with Larva, her subservient, Miyu sets out to destroy evil, one Shinma at a time.
Vampire Princess Miyu TV and Pet Shop of Horrors are similar in that they both use supernatural aspects to tell stories of insanity and despair. In both cases people fall prey to their own frailties and it is from there that tragedy ensues. In both cases there is a quasi-human arbiter that stands aloof; Miyu's role is more straight forward than the ambiguous nature of Count D, when deciding the outcome of each scenario. These are dark series that deal essentially with the negative side of the human heart, using ancient myths as a framing device.
Fukuzou Moguro, also known as the Laughing Salesman, is no ordinary peddler of wares. This bizarre, mysterious man deals in matters of the human heart, helping out those who are sad and in need of something to heal their soul – and what's better yet, he doesn't charge them a penny. But though his ever-present Cheshire grin would suggest his motives are pure, the results of Fukuzou's intervention may prove otherwise...

Wicked city has about the same style of 90's anime and both are twisted in a way. Both of these animes are horror based. Pet shop of horrors offers the same amount of mutations as Wicked City does. I think you will enjoy it.
