So who will like this and who won't. In my opinion, those who would like this are those who want a show that makes them think a little. Not in a way of changing your world view or whatever. But the show has a bit that it throws at you at any moment, and you might feel overwhelmed if you miss given bits. 
Those who might not like this is those who want a show that you can "turn off your brain". 

Something that should be noted is the animation. The animation of how someone can turn into a fish, a cat, water, and so on is great. The people who worked on this actually put the extra mile in. But at the same time, this is what gives you a lot of info in a short bit.

The overall story is kinda basic. In short, it's basically a group that use "mind powers" by changing people's memories, change their happiest moments, and so on. They try to explain it off like they hypnotize people. But at the end of the day, it is mind powers since they can go into your thoughts, see what you see, have private meetings in your head, and so on. It tries to play this as this is happening in the real world, and this group is mostly using their powers for a mafia like group. 
The show more than less gets into the personal relationships between each other in the group. 

In my opinion, it is worth a watch.

Oh wow, this was one wild ride of a show! It starts off very rocky, and it doesn't make sense at parts of the beginning, but that's because it is written to do so. 

This show features many characters who can shape and remove each other's memories at will. Not everything you see is as is, but you will learn to realize which parts are fake and which are real. The more characters have their memories shaped, the crazier they become. Some characters hit the peak of insanity. 

There are elements of underground crime organizations, and there are many guns and smoking, and very few sexual scenes, so it's intended for an older audience. 

While the story can get dry at points, it is fairly original and interesting. 

Do I recommend this show? Yes, to anyone who enjoys a more serious show with constant symbolism. Is it the new FMA? No, of course not, but it is still enjoyable.

No la compro, en este caso dare mi humilde opinión pues la serie seria bastente complicada valorar de forma objetiva.

La historia pinta interesante, lo del "pico" y el "valle" es una buena idea pero creo que no la contaron de la manera más entretenida, tenian una gran idea que no exprimieron sino la usaron como acompañamiento de la historia principal. Tsukasa que parece estar a otro nivel con su plan perfecto alfinal termina siendo una autentica decepcion, un autentico pirado opcecionado con una persona, donde alfinal su plan hizo aguas...

La animación no esta del todo mal pero dista mucho de ser algo impresionante.

En cuanto a los personajes no hay mucho que añadir, bastante basicos, cada uno con sus problemas mentales.

En resumen, no la recomiendo.

The main reason I loved this anime was because of the characters and their love relationship.

The relationship between Tsukasa and Hiruki was so special, they have an intimate relationship, where Hiruki cannot live without Tsukasa, in the latest episode, Tsukasa started to show that he only cares about him since he considers him his Pet, but watching the last episode shows how much they care for each other and they only want to run away together, Hiruki really tried to do everything he could to save the only person whom he has ever known.

I just loved how Tsukasa always protected Hiruki and took care of him more than his pet, and how Hiruki loved and stayed loyal to him.

What Pet lacks in animation and other technicals, it more than makes up for with its solid story and compelling cast of characters. The development isn’t something that makes itself obvious right away, but if you stick with it until the ending, then you won’t go home disappointed.

Its premise is immediately interesting: with the bizarre combination of mindbenders and organized crime, you’d think this was an anime version of Inception. But Pet later proves that it’s more than just that, because the deeper it goes, the more entangled every character gets with each other. So even if the mindbending jargon might get to be too much – words like “lock,” “peak,” “valley,” and “pet” get re-defined and thrown at you constantly – the resulting tension and character drama become just juicy enough to make you hang around until it ends. At its core, Pet is really less about its concept of memory manipulation, and more about the people doing the manipulating. Every named character in this series is hiding something, and the thrill lies in watching them all go against each other, breaking and re-forging alliances as they do so. As a result, the show’s got its own sense of style that isn’t anything much to look at at first, but once it gets trippy, it really isn’t afraid to go all-out.

Pet is uncompromising about its weirdness – while it could have been more pulp and over-the-top than advertised, it chose to double-down on its thriller aspects instead. It could have relied on just the novely of its memory manipulation tactics to see it through, but it chose to complement those with memorable characters who were all fully-realized and fleshed-out by the time the series ended. Like its characters, Pet isn’t something to be underestimated – and if you made that mistake heading in, then I honestly don't blame you. Maybe that was part of its mindbending game all along.
