Haimura Kiri is a seemingly ordinary boy with one slight problem: he is obsessed with cutting other people's hair. One day he meets Mushiyanokouji Iwai, the "Hair Queen" who cannot cut her hair because of an inherited curse. Kiri finds out that his scissor, "Dansai Bunri no Crime Edge" is the only thing that can cut them. But little did he know that their meeting sparked the start of an old murder game to kill the "Hair Queen" using the cursed killing tools, the "Killing Goods." Can Kiri protect Iwai from the Killing Goods Owners? Let the game begin!

If you thought long hair was something of an eye catcher, get a load of this. Dansai Bunri no Crime Edge features a mysterious girl who has probably the longest hair length of almost any anime I've seen. I don't know if that's any sort of accomplishment, but this series takes strange to a new level as there's a particular young boy who is obsessed with the idea of cutting hair. Now the formula is complete with a young boy who wants to cut hair and a girl who has long hair. Oh but that's just the tip of the iceberg. Beyond that mountain of read more

Everyone has his pills, all it takes is just a prescription we end up in total addiction.

For Haimura Kiri , his fondness for cutting hair has led him to a series of unexpected events stuffed in a peculiar story.Action evolves around these Killing Goods, that are normal objects that have powerful enchantments placed on them that is said to have been placed there by their first owners. As you have guessed these special properties are a means to power and conflict erupts when you fight to the death for a wish granted through a lowly murder leaving you in the end with some questions and read more

Dansai Bunri no Crime Edge is a rather recent anime based on a manga by Hikagi Tatsuhiko. The anime was handled by Studio Gokumi, a studio I only know from their work on A Channel. They don't really have many works yet since they're a pretty new studio, their first work wasn't even four years ago. This will be the second anime I've seen from them. Let's see how it compares to the first.

Our story opens with Kiri, our protagonist, going to the house of a rumoured spirit with long hair because... that's his fetish. I'm not even kidding. He goes because he has read more

Anime: Akuma no Riddle
Whether it's a classroom full of school girl assassins or a city full of bloodthirsty murderers, both are murder games which revolve around killing a seemingly helpless girl in order to be granted a wish. Both are filled with eccentric and psychologically unstable characters who take pleasure in the "killing" aspect of the killing game. The main characters play similar roles in the game and both share a special connection to the target.

Furthermore, the grins. Let's not forget the grins! Characters in both shows have giant grins that look like razors stretching from ear to ear. This is  read more

Anime: Inu to Hasami wa Tsukaiyou
Both include characters who wield scissors as their weapon of choice and both have a seemingly unconventional relationship with their partners. Somewhat violent but either show has its own quirks and comedic moments.
