I'm going to guess they didn't show his face for either two reasons.
1.) He's going to die, so it kind of shows how exactly unimportant his human form will be.

2.) He'll be resurrected and the reveal will be then.

3.) It's setting up for something in the future, perhaps we'll see his face during a burial or something.

Anyways, I actually liked it, it was rather interesting and I actually felt sorry for the poor guy in the end. He started to realize what being dead as a human meant and thought of all the little things and what he couldn't do anymore.

Girl is interesting as well, pretty sadistic, but she's really kind.

How does this compare with crime edge? I did not watch crime edge last season.


It doesn't, but thanks to a pair of scissors being in it, I guess people are comparing it.

The show has a lot of comedic potential. Hoping it doesn't devolve into melodramatic BS later on.

7/10

I actually liked this episode a lot. ENjoyed watching every minute :) Still it won't fill the void Hataraku maou-sama left in my anime heart.

Really average for me. Humor doesn't click with me at all. Some of the mysterious elements are interesting though.

Interesting first episode. If he is the dog then that must mean the dog is in his human body XD

I getting the feeling that whatever she was writing came true. The robbery and him turning into a dog. When he mentioned the robbery she didn't answer...

This anime has certainly caught my attention, for me I don't recall watching many animes where someone is reincarnated as a dog with a cute ass author. I am definetly looking forward to episode 2

Current rating 8/10 (rating is subject to change over the course of the anime)

Hmmm... I'll watch a couple episodes more before deciding if I stay...

The premise is not bad and I did laugh a bit, but the jokes did get repetitive. Let's wait and see...

That was a pretty nice first episode, this show looks promising, hope it delivers some good comedy.

How do you get shot point-blank, in the face, with a shotgun, and not have your head splatter across the room?


This definitively is not Deadman Wonderland or Mirai Nikki, it is a comedy so it makes sense that they do not show his hollow skull nor his brains splattered on the ground. If you ask me even the blood pool was too much (and unrealistic to boot, it would not have grown so quickly).

Anyways, I think my expectations were really low for this because I ended up enjoying this first episode quite a bit. Kirihime and Kazuhito are pretty cool. I laughed a lot. The art style was a bit meh at first, but then I either got used to it or it got better. I probably got used to it.


same here

Meh. Another silly anime. Dropped

The plot felt forced. The setting of that sadistic & scissor-obsessed female lead also felt forced. Also it was unconvincing she was a grown-up writer. Even teens of Crime Edge acted maturer. The character design of the heroine, especially her eyes, was not appealing to my eye compared to character design of some other anime such as Dusk Maiden Amnesia. (Yuuko's eyes were much more expressive and beautiful. It got under my skin when the male lead encountered her in a club room.) Besides, the animal abuse was disgusting. I regret I watched the episode. To be honest, it was a waste of my time. I usually don't drop series at the 1st ep, but this time watching the 1st ep I can tell it's not my taste. I don't understand why this anime was created when there were already lots of better ones in terms of plot, execution and character design. Just my opinion.

That is true but it could be possible that his body is alive.

He took a point blank shotgun blast to the head. He died. He came back as a dog. Maybe if she really kills him he can come back as a boy again...

Sucks that he died a virgin sad death without knowing true love. At least he can now read all the books he wants from his favourite author, until his short dog life ends.

Natsuno Kirihime kinda reminds me of a cross between Kanoe Yuuko and Senjogahara Hitagi. Kirihime...what an appropriate name she was given.

Not sure if I can get used to this animal abusing comedy but it's not bad.

I thought it was an entertaining first episode. I do wonder how a writers "weapon" is scissors... You would think it would be a killer fountain pen.

Despite the sadistic animal abuser, it actually seems a little interesting, what with the murder case behind Kazuhito. I'll keep watching for now. Don't know if I'll drop it sooner than I'll expect.

Nice first episode. Natsunol it's such a sadistic.
And I love that Sakurai Takahiro makes the Kazuhito Harumi voice, my favorite seiyuu. I hope the plot remains the same and get even better in the coming episodes.

Characters are very boring and unlikable so far.
The plot don't have any direction yet.
2/5, I almost regret watching it...
I will probably keep watching one more episode before I can any final judgement.


The way the main character died is really uncreative and ridiculous. In US, I can believe in the possibility that gun homicide. In Japan, you have 100X better chance of getting hit by lighting than get kill by shotgun especially if you are not even a Yakuza.

Lol's at the OP.

All the girls in his flashback after getting shot... is this gonna have a harem? I do like female MC though, she's quite amusing and female characters with long black hair and sadistic personality. Hngggg. Also dem flat chest jokes. 92 bust. Lols.

I kinda found the animation choppy though during the show.

Did enjoy episode 1 overall though.

Next time he should push the gun away from his face instead of looking down the barrel...

While a decent series the fact that he is a dog kind of traps the story. I can't predict it going much further then what it already is.
