What are animate Promotional Events?
animate shops in Japan hold promotions where customers can get their hands on exclusive bonus items when they buy certain items. These bonus items are only distributed for a limited time, making them highly sought after.

Knowing how easily our entire world can be taken apart, would you accept orders to manipulate others? That’s the conundrum that Hiroki, Satoru and Tsukasa find themselves in as they’re employed as psychic hitmen and enforcers by a mysterious agency. Or, at least, that’s what might be happening. Because they themselves are almost certainly being manipulated, and the concepts of truth and reality cease to have meaning when you’re one of the terrifying beings known as a PET.
