Pet (ペット, Petto) is an anime based on the 2009 remastered edition of the Pet manga by Ranjō Miyake. Announced in March 2018 with an initial release date of October 2019, the anime was rescheduled and began airing on January 5, 2020.

Some people have the power to enter other people's minds and manipulate memories. Their power has been used to cover up mysteries, cases and even assassinations. These powers can not only destroy other people's spirits but also erode the users heart at the same time. The users had to protect their fragile and insecure hearts, as if chained to each other. They are called "pets" out of fear and disdain.
