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!

The Severing Crime Edge is...rather unique. I really do like unique. If an anime is unique, it can be a saving factor for the entire series. Unfortunately, that's mostly what this anime is...just unique... It's really rather saddening actually, this series has so much potential, but it's mostly just wasted through awkward storytelling, bad execution, and the overall underwhelming feeling it leaves you with. You want it to be great, but it's just so close, yet so far from being so.

Now, watch as I attempt to not point out too many flaws in my review of The Severing Crime Edge:

Haimura Kiri looks like an ordinary boy from the outside but he is actually a person with a hair cutting obsession, and a severe one at that. He wants to cut sweet lady hair to satisfy himself and for that purpose he carries a scissor And one day he meets The Queen of Hair- a girl who couldn't cut her hair. Sounds like a perfect match right?

Story: This story is one of those that messes up the audiences emotions, it's hard to think that the mangaka pitied any of the characters. The story elements fits together and have enormous plot twists. The Romance scenes 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

With a unique storyline and engaging characters, Dansai Bunri no Crime Edge is definitely an anime worth watching.

It might seem complicated and complex at first, but the anime runs on a simple and easy to understand plot, which allowed me to get used to the characters without focusing to much on trying to figure out the plot. It got a bit predictable towards the end, but there are plenty of unexpected surprises that make up for it. The episodes all felt connected, and the right amount of comedic moments were mixed in with action scenes, yet the plot continuously moved on. Some topics explored read more

Anime: Mirai Nikki (TV)
- Killing game

- Dark atmosphere
- Focuses on "pairs"

Anime: C³
Both shows have people fighting using, or being, cursed instruments/tools. They also look cute at times, and very violent at others.  
reportRecommended by Emathejester
Anime: Nazo no Kanojo X
Characters with an unusual fetish, scissors being similar to both series. They are attached to each other and also have a daily routine to be fulfilled.

Anime: Cuticle Tantei Inaba
The main characters have hair fetishes. It gives them their power up  
reportRecommended by AnimeFan500
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. 
reportRecommended by IchiroEX
Anime: Fate/stay night
There is a bloodline traditional game that in order to get your wish granted you must kill. In Crime Edge you have "Killing Goods" instead of "Servants", and instead of killing all servants other than your own to get their wish granted, they must kill the Main female character Iwai. Behind all this there is an organization that oversees the progress of the "Game". That is where there similarity ends.
