Recognizing Wu Liuqi's talent with scissors, his business partner Ji Dabao proposes a new venture: the duo will open a hair salon, which will act as a front for an affordable assassination service. Determined to recover his lost memories, Liuqi is prepared to kill as many targets as it takes in order to raise enough money to travel to the kingdom of Istan for amnesia treatment.
Alas, the world of assassins is a dangerous one, and while struggling to complete missions he is caught in the middle of an ongoing power struggle between the technologically-advanced Istani and the chivalrous Chinese martial arts society. Soon enough, it becomes clear that his long-forgotten past is inextricably tied to the fate of the small island he now calls home.
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 no 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 have 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 worth watching
Out of 100 Nobles watching…
97 were impressed!
1 thought the story pacing/plot was a bit nonsensical at times
1 thought the animation chugged or got lazy in parts
1 thought the voice work was just so-so
Killer 7 is coming in strong with the new year packing a punch and taking my lunch…money. *cough* This one’s pretty good and I’m glad I spent half an afternoon watching it yes you heard me just half an afternoon. This bad boy comes packed nutrient rich with tasty anime flavors and is consumable in its entirety including its 4 OVA episodes in a little under 4 hours thanks mostly to the shows
12-15 minute run time. Killer 7 presents something fresh, unique, and fun and along side it’s short run time there’s really no reason not to watch it. Heck even if you’re the sort of plebeian who watches their anime only in English there’s a dub for you. There’s like 6 dubs for that matter this show really got the full-service treatment.
There’s not really anything significant for me to harp on this show for, my 97 stands because it doesn’t feel right calling Killer 7 perfect. Right off the bat I’ll praise the visuals of the show. In addition to the shorter runtime this shows style is sort of an inky hand-drawn look that really gives me nostalgic vibes reminiscent of FLCL. The visuals feel a little lazy in some parts and there is some minimal CG that stands out a bit, but I’m valuing those transgressions fairly low given how minimal they were and that this studio seems to be a first timer. Honestly the expression in animation was great and I hope to see more from ShareFun and other Chinese studios in the future.
I went into this show expecting nothing, but man for a show that has the sense of humor that it does the feels really come hard in this one. I was quite surprised with a number of episodes. The show doesn’t explain to much about what’s going on but I don’t really think that’s a bad thing. I was definitely left wanting more of the story to unfold by the end of the season. As a side note the OVA prequels are incredibly good. I never knew I wanted a full on Shonen anime about cock fighting.
The show is Chinese and originally dubbed in the language. I watched the show in Japanese for my own practice of AJAT (All Japanese All the Time) immersion for “study” so I don’t know how good the original dub is. The Japanese dub was pretty good, maybe slightly average in some parts. I could swear the voice actress of Rem from Re:Zero was voicing a cute girl but finding the Japanese voice credits was too hard for me. Overall there weren’t any real masterful performances outside of the OVA, but the show despite containing action was more of a slice of life so there weren’t too many “hype-moments” that relied heavily on the performance of a voice actor to sell the scene. Although right after typing that there were a few scenes with the MC…
Killer 7 was a great show. I really hope I see more content like this from Chinese studio’s and hope Japanese studio’s will step up their game to compete. This show really deserves nothing but praise and you’re doing yourself a disservice by not watching it.
I honestly never expected to have watched this underrated Chinese anime in my whole lifetime....regardless if it was on my watchlist for a very long time.
I didn't expect to see a Samurai Jack\Saitama type of character who was inspired by a historical figure and that folks is Wu Liuqi AKA Seven as you probably have never heard of before you watched this anime lol!
Seriously the dude was so effing badass and just pure funny the way he interacts with unique characters he bumps into. I really liked how the show deep dives into what these main characters are going through behind the scenes (cancer,
forbidden love, family issues,etc) because we all have a life story to share at the end of the day! I have to advice anyone that's planning to watch this short Chinese anime to bring tissues as they are definitely needed to watch the whole 10 episodes.
Music was great too especially when it came to the battle scenes!
It's too bad that the actors weren't credited for their performances as the characters as they did such a superb job. I honestly want to find out who did the old bird because his old man voice was just God damn great as well as the assassin and the little bird who travels with the guys. It may be the same guy but who knows?
Just go watch this folks because honestly, this type of Chinese anime needs to be recognised badly!
Cike Wu Liuqi is one of these animes you usually wouldn't watch untill you are alone at 4am, doing nothing and seeing it being in a "recently uploaded" list. It's the typical anime you watch without any expectation and would even eventually judge a bit lame at the first sight, before watching every episodes of it without skipping any opening or ending and without being able to stop.
The anime will first grabs you with its humour and, its simple plot and its unexpected shitty plot twists while accompaining this with a very good ost and animation (taking in consideration the first impression you might
have of it).
Don't take me wrong though, despite being "simplistic", the characters you will encounter aren't on the story just as flower pots, they are well made even if they are used in very few episodes.
Thus, you will switch from laugh to empathy, from "bwehehe" to "holy shit" and most important from "meh, the anime looks a bit lame" at 4am to a guy singing the ost while playing with scissors.
