Dansai Bunri no Crime Edge

Seriously now, what the hell did I just watch? Is it a horror show? A comedy show? Maybe romance? I don’t know. I can only label it as weird right now. It’s like they’re trying so hard to make it into a drama with a lot of horror, but that they don’t realize that the strange comedy is kind of preventing them from doing anything of the sort.

Dansai Bunri no Crime EdgeThe artwork isn’t that bad, yet I’ve seen plenty of things I would’ve done differently. The heroine, Iwai, is by far one of the best things about the artwork. She’s like a younger and cuter version of Rapunzel, which is why I was kind of disappointed when he managed to cut her hair at the end of the first episode.

It’s definitely the story that’s the problem here. What am I supposed to watch here? Is it about a girl whose hair can only be cut by magical scissors? Is it about a strange, perverted boy that goes nuts when he sees a girl with long hair? I don’t really know yet. All I can say right now is that you really need to have an open mind for this particular story.

The hardest part about this review is that I have no idea to whom I should recommend this. I suppose fantasy and romance fans wouldn’t mind watching this, but what about the people that don’t like (cheap) horror and comedy? I simply advise you to watch the first episode. Do you like it? Great! Do you not? Well, that’s too bad, but there’s plenty of other shows to choose from this season.

Plot Summary: Haimura Kiri is a seemingly ordinary boy with one slight problem: he is obsessed with cutting other people’s hair. One day he meets Mushiyanokouji Iwai, the “Hair Queen” who cannot cut her hair because of an inherited curse. Kiri finds out that his scissor, “Dansai Bunri no Crime Edge” is the only thing that can cut them. But little did he know that their meeting sparked the start of an old murder game to kill the “Hair Queen” using the cursed killing tools, the “Killing Goods.” Can Kiri protect Iwai from the Killing Goods Owners? Let the game begin!
