Killer seven is an amazing short Chinese anime . It already gained huge popularity in China ,but seems pretty low key elsewhere so I don’t know if there’s sub but it should come one day.
It has simple but well thought plot , the animation feels cheap and more of a hand drawn style but everything runs fluidly and there’s to animation glitch or deformed face like in some Japanese anime. The fight scene are extremely fluid and well executed we can tell the budget went to the right place. Every episode got unexpected comedy scene , sarcastic jokes and pop culture reference with
decent emotional scene.
If you can find sub or understand Chinese,I definitely recommend it. The sytle is very semblable to some Kung fu movie. It should be enjoyable for all age group beside 60+ i guess. There’s also 4 eps ova wroth watching
This is the first time ive ever written a review for anything. After watching almost the entirety of this show in one day, I decided it was necessary as I do believe this is the most underrated show of all time. One reason I hear people aren't giving it a chance is because its Chinese which is ridiculous because china have proven themselves capable of great animation (ping pong) + the voice acting is brilliant.
The studio that worked on it (Annecy) takes a more traditional route to animation. Its mostly frame by frame and hand drawn. A beautiful yet simplistic style that's just
so damn appealing to look at. One of the most consistent animes I have ever seen.
ya gotta take my word for it, ive studied comedy. I've got a pretty good grasp on what makes something funny. This show does it right. It sets you up to think one thing, then does the complete opposite, a fine subvert of expectations. It handles repetition well in a way where its not annoying. Sometimes you'll think a scene is really heartwarming then BOOM, it hits you with that sweet, rich, comedic gold OR vice versa. The main voice actor has hilarious delivery skills, its very chinese is my best way of describing it. How does one make a fight so comedic??? I laughed none stop through multiple battles that in shounen would be mega serious. Constant surprise, never does what you expect.
This show is amazing at making you care for characters you've known for one episode. This world has humans and human hybrids and I think it fits the art style very well. The recurring characters are likable and funny, as well as interesting. The main is an assassin hairdresser with telekinetic abilities, he fights with scissors. His contractor is a bird person who invents technology for Liuqi to use.
As a whole, the plot isn't completely original. An assassin with amnesia who wants to know more about his past, he takes on assignments to get the attention of popular assassins. However, on an individual level the episodes are fantastic short stories. I personally prefer a story with a satisfying ending summed up in one episode rather than a long story that gives you pieces of info in each. This story is easy to follow, memorable and most importantly ENTERTAINING. You will go through a roller-coaster ride of emotions if you watch this. The writers are very good at seamlessly changing the genre from comedic to dramatic and heartbreaking. That's only scratching the surface, im a grown man and I started tearing up at one point or another.
Not perfect. The voice acting is the best, the music is good, sound direction is adequate BUT its as if they recorded with lower quality mic than most other places. Wont be noticeable to most , I didn't have an issue with this at all. Oh yes, some of the songs are actually amazing.
I think that's about everything. Id recommend this show to anyone no matter what genre you prefer. It went far beyond my expectations and im happy I found it by pure chance, ill re-watch it multiple times. Find a sub OR dedicate a few years to learning Cantonese so you can enjoy everything this show has to offer. its flippin worth it (idk if im allowed to swear in review)
