Synopsis

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."

Once again we get a badass looking cover that doesn't accurately present the source. Koroshiya-san: The Hired Gun can be considered a comedy, but one would really have to go out of their way to label it an "action" series. This isn't an action series. What this is, is basically like the parody extras in more popular shows after they've been completed. That style of humor is related to a "4 Koma" style, which is basically a four-picture comic that would be found on newspapers. They can be funny, and the jokes can vary, but are usually parodies of something or the other. Koroshiya-san: The 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.

Preliminary
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

Preliminary
Do you ever want to not try things? Is forming a structuralist perspective on reality too boring? Why does my pee pee come out yellow? This anime is like if Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei went on a lunch break. Very digestable series at 3 minutes an episode, 50 seconds of which can be skipped because I could sing and draw a better opening if you gave me 50 minutes. The entire opening has 8 lyrics which convey less than no meaning, and it trumps up the literally non-existent action "element" of the series. So anyway the 2 minutes and 10 seconds that is left are surrealist read more
