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, who is both a sadistic girl who uses scissors like a weapon and his favorite author.

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

Do you understand what is comedy? Do you really value it? I am very sure you don't, not until you watch Dogs and Scissors. It is a series that will make you appreciate jokes, more than ever, because its pathetic, dreadful, and fan-service accompanied "comedic" plot will make you appreciate the math joke that you thought was stupid.

The plot is simple..you can read the summary anywhere, so I am not going to detail that. But yes, this is an extreme story of books..where you either write or die..you read or die. That was the opening sentence of the anime. Quite interesting right? Yeah, read more

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

“Japan never fails to surprise me with their anime”

Anime, without we realize has turned us into some people who likes weird things or even taboo in some society. We are getting used and even being desensitisized with japanese weird taste, Like ecchi that basically soft porn, incest that mostly all people in the world against it, and even turn us into a lolicon. Now, they even will make us turn into more weirder with the love between an animal and a human. Prepare for this?

STORY (4/10) - Inu to Hasami is basically your generic of romance comedy anime with some harem in it. The premise read more

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

A comedy that is just as good as Inu to Hasami. Get ready for a world of laughs!

Anime: Yahari Ore no Seishun Love Comedy wa Machigatteiru.
The playful persiflage between the male lead and the female lead is fun to watch.
