Dog & Scissors Episode 1 First impressions / Review

Dog & Scissors also known as Inu to Hasami wa Tsukaiyou.

First impression: Entertaining, Good fun, Comedy (though hopefully will get better)

Its a story of reading or dying…

Dog and Scissors Ep 1 - AnimeMage.com

It starts with a high school boy named Harumi Kazuhito, who loves books and is a big fan of novelist Natsuno Kirihime (Though at the start he doesn’t realise this as she goes via another name / Pen Name).

Harumi Kazuhito finds himself in an awkward situation in a cafe which is being held up and as this is happening he finds Kirihime writing sat in the cafe next to him about to be shot by a robber. He protects her from the attack but ends up getting killed instead.

As he sees the light shine away, he cry’s out multiple times that he can’t die until he’s read the last book and through some super natural powers he ends up being  reincarnated as a dachshund dog.

Harumi Kazuhito (as a dog) ends up living in caged up, painful bookless life until, a sadistic woman carrying a pair of scissors offers him help. She is Kirihime herself.

For some stage reason she can her Harumi Kazuhito’s thoughts and the reason she picked him up was to stop him shouting her pen name.

Once she realises he’s the reincarnated kid who saved her in the Cafe she gives him a little more freedom and who knows where this story is going to go over the next 11 episodes!

In short this story is a nonsense supernatural, comical mystery and I’m sure we will see many spins and turns throughout the series.

It had a very interesting start, it isn’t often you get introduced to a main character and see him shot in the first 8 minutes of the series!

I don’t know if they are going to have other film references throughout the series but the James bond one caught my attention :D (screen grabbed that one).

But as you can see from the screen grab the quality of the animation isn’t brilliant and this is the first episode where they usually put in more effort so I’m not expecting too much from the rest of the series in that department however, that said if the story is interesting then it maybe a keeper.

The Intro and outro to the series music wise isn’t anything special and animation wise again nothing that really stands out however it does show a wide variety of female characters (one singing) which I’m sure will appear throughout the series however the music isn’t anything to write home about.

Character design so far, well we have Miss Sadistic and Mr Book Worm turn Dog… Any side characters haven’t really been touched on yet. So far I like the main female character Kirihime with her interesting sadistic tendency’s this could be quite an interesting series.

Overall Dog & Scissors seems like an average series which I’ll probably continue to watch to see if it gets better or dropped.
