The absurd mystery comedy centers around Harumi Kazuhito, a high school boy who is obsessed with reading books. One day, he is killed in the middle of a robbery—and resurrected as a dachshund dog. Unable to read in his new form, the hapless Kazuhito now belongs to Natsuno Kirihime, a sadistic girl who uses scissors like a weapon.

Snips, snails, and puppy dog tails

There are many anime shows out there. Some are serious, some are goofy, and some are both. Other shows enjoy dishing out ecchi, and then taking it away because it was all a trap to begin with (God, there's a lot of those). However eventually there is a show that is just really different. Bizarre. Plain weird. And just absurd. That show is Dog & Scissors.

It starts off simple enough as any other anime. It has a plot, and a reason. However those two get resolved pretty quickly, and then the show goes into Simpson-esc sitcom mode. Mostly because this read more

Dog and Scissors has to be one of the more bizarre anime that I have watched, on the surface appears like it is going to be a whole lot of trash, and believe me I gave my fiancee hell for buying it! But also believe me when I say that this anime is really good, and in a completely non-conventional way!

The premise of the story is that Kazuhito, a HUGE bookwork, protects a young lady in a cafe from a hold-up by jumping in front of a crazy man with a shotgun, to have his head blown off! All the while lady is completely oblivious read more

A dog as a protagonist?! Is what my reaction was when I first saw Inu to Hasami. And it made me think of how would the story revolve around that dog. So I tried watching it.

I've never watched a series where an animal gets the main stage, so this will be the first one.

So the story revolves around Harumi Kazuhito, a bookworm. He's a die hard fan of Akiyama Shinobu's books. One day he got into a cafe which was about to be robbed by a guy who didn't make any sense later in the story. The robber took out his gun and pointed it read more

Dear Japan:

It seems almost every season, there’s one of those shows from your country that plays on fetishes or a rather bizarre sequence in the anime world. This time, it involves a girl and its….dog. Then, it decides for some odd reason to add the concept of scissors to the mix because we know it’s one of the dangerous gadgets suitable for “punishment”. As for the punishment itself, the receiving end is none other than our dog of the series, Kazuhito Harumi.

Inu to Hasami wa Tsukaiyo (also known as Dogs & Scissors) is an animated series based off the light novel of the same read more

Anime: Nazo no Kanojo X
Both main characters uses scissors and both anime are of the comedy genre.

Anime: Bakemonogatari
The garrulous male leads have it tough because it is almost impossible to get the best of these two female leads in a conversation.

If anything is sharper than their scissors, then it might be their tongues.

Anime: Onii-chan dakedo Ai Sae Areba Kankeinai yo ne!
In OniAi the male lead is a popular author who uses a pen name and the female lead is a big fan of his writing.

The concept is switched around in Inu to Hasami, where the female lead is the author and the male lead is the reader.

Anime: Dansai Bunri no Crime Edge
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.

Anime: Chocotan!
Both series involves talking dog. The same exact dog!!!! Mixed with comedy and romance.

The playful persiflage between the male lead and the female lead is fun to watch.
