The mysterious Count D owns a pet shop in Chinatown. However, it's no ordinary pet shop: D sells exotic and rare pets that often have the appearance of a human in the eyes of their new owners. Since these animals are so special, each one is only sold if the customer signs a contract agreeing to abide by the instructions provided, or suffer the dire consequences, all whilst conveniently releasing the shop itself from any responsibility. However, when some customers break their contracts and a series of incidents occur as a result, this small business doesn't go unnoticed. Inspector Leon Orcot begins to investigate D, suspecting him of slave smuggling; but can he get to the bottom of the events surrounding the shop, or will he just be dragged into the Count's pace of afternoon tea and cake?
High in the sky is the Yume Kira Dream Shoppe, a magical place where any dream can be granted in exchange for something dear to you. Rin, the shop's owner, and his plush rabbit assistant Alpha sign contracts with those in need, from a beautiful tree to a girl unable to confess to her secret love. Using rare and powerful items, Rin and Alpha will help bring joy to many lives.
It's true that Yume is very lighthearted and generally happy, while Pet Shop is very dark and feels like more of a precautionary set of tales. Regardless, you can't deny the similarity between the stories, so if you liked one try out the other (just expect a bit of a different tone)
