The comedy story follows the title character, who is regarded by himself and others as the best hit man in Japan. He goes by the motto, "If I have an assignment, I will kill anything." However, his "killing" assignments have expanded to include everything from summer vacation homework to housekeeping. "The hit man never fails to kill the target. Though he does not aim to, he also never misses the laughter."

Koroshiya-san: The Hired Gun is one of the strangest examples of an anime I've seen in a few years. Normally, the strange appeals to me, but in this case, it's simply dreadful. Koroshiya is an adaption of a 4-koma manga of the same name, but when it comes down to it, this form of anime is not suited to adapting a four panel manga.

In all honesty, I'm sure the creators of this anime don't take this show that seriously. Each episode is three minutes long, and a minute of that is dedicated to the opening, which is one of the worst animated openings I've ever read more

This anime is a great change of pace, if you're looking for nothing serious with a bit of comedy. The anime is short not much is going on in the anime. It just randoms stuff happening. I enjoyed it a lot, got a few chuckles, actual footage is 2 min because of the opening. I truly do recommend this anime.

They are more similar than one would think. Basically, you have two shows with a parody of anime plots that completely go off the rails. These are comedic geniuses less than three-minute long skits filled with anti-climaxes and surreal humor.
