Astral Pet Store Review

Astral Pet Store Review


Su Ping takes over his family’s nearly bankrupt pet store and gains a “Super Pet System” that tasks him with training the “strongest pets in the world.” The system allows him to enter different realms like the Thunder Cloud Realm and Chaotic Realm of the Undead to rapidly strengthen pets in a short period of real-world time. He trains a Lightning Rat and Skeleton pet, evolving them to much higher power levels and abilities.

Su Ping also discovers he has awakened as a battle pet warrior, allowing him to form contracts with pets. He meets siblings Fan Yujing and Fan Xiaoyu, members of an explorers team, who invite him to help find their lost pet in a dangerous unclaimed territory. Su Ping agrees to complete a system quest.

World Building

The world depicted is set in the future on Earth, where warp gates and fractures in space allow travel to other planets and realms. Society revolves around “Astral Pets,” beasts with incredible powers used in battle, exploration, and everyday life. Battles rage over control of resources. Humans can form lifelong, psychic contracts with pets if born with the talent, of becoming “battle pet warriors.”

There is great inequality, with battle pet warriors and “explorers” who venture into the wilderness to harvest resources occupying the upper echelons of society. Giant domed cities protect citizens, but outside lies polluted wastelands, wild beasts, and lawlessness. Advanced technology coexists with mystical realms that defy physics.

There are many mysterious forces in this world, including ancient ruins, strange dimensions, and powerful alien races. The protagonist journeys to exotic locales like fantasy-style forests, intergalactic cultivation sites, and his pet store simulation pocket dimension.
