Synopsis

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

“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

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

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: Oniichan 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.

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