  • Disappointed, unfortunately
    I really wanted to like this show, but I've stalled out on episode 4, right after


    The first few episodes were not so bad. I liked the setup a lot -- the obsession with books, the link to the author, the vengeance, and the ...

  • Nothing but empty promises ..
    I really wanted to like this story and I thought it would be more involved than random slap stick attempts at comedy. The additional characters that just fight each other for no real reason is also annoying. There is no grasp of context or plot in this series and the core premise of someone dying to read a book is never solved .. Don't waste your time, not much here besides a tsundere and a hermit ...

  • Didn't Keep Me Interested
    It didn't really capture me at all so I am not really sure why I finished the series. A really meh serious wouldn't recommend. The love story is absolutely weird you would figure that this would have an actual plot to it but it didn't. It ended up being random skits of a pointless "story".

    It's like an absurd Japanese take on Scooby-Doo.......except that it is actually pretty good.
    Ok. There are a lot of anime shows out there that basically have their own comedic niche. Then there are other shows out that are just absurd to be absurd. That's exactly where Dog & Scissors is at. With a genre blend of mystery, and comedy. This anime starts out with a dark plot, then eventually it somehow becomes an outlandish comedy. Even the description is weird. A book nerd (Kazuhito Harumi) ...

  • Random, Cute, and Hilarious
    I didn't expect much when I started this show but after the first couple of episodes I was hooked. The characters were amusing and I loved each of them. The plot was interesting and different. The Music and Animation were really good and didn't have any complaints. I would recommend this series for someone looking for a short cute and funny show to entertain them.

    Batshit insane, but in a good way
    There is no way of getting around the fact this anime is absolutely mental, i mean completely barking mad, but if you go in knowing that you can have fun with it. The relationship dynamic between are two mains makes for a lot of funny slapstick moments, in fact there is a lot of adult-ish humour in this show, if anything it is at times very funny. Also, it the relationship between dog and ...

    When does the story start?
    This was a series I REALLY wanted to like. The first episode was well put together, but after that it all fell apart. The characters felt like cardboard cutouts being pushed around. They would start a story line, or character development, and then just ignore it for the rest of the series without resolution. When I say that, I mean NO character or story got resolved at ANY point in the ...

    Every dog has their day, except this one.
    Enter, the main character, Harumi Kazuhito! He's a book loving student that can't have enough of a certain authors book, which is...
    Enter, Natsuno Kirihime! Her books are so popular that bookstores can't keep them on the shelves! Speaking of which, this lady bought a dog she heard speaking.
    Enter, the dog, Kazuhito! Wait, wasn't that the name of the student? What the heck happened here? What's ...

    Unexpected summer delight
    Did not know what I was getting myself into when I started this series. The synopsis summarizes the first episode for the most part and the rest of the series is extreme caricatures. The episodes were weird and that held me on through to the season finale. Will definitely watch this again!

    Could work, better comedy
    The premises is intriguing, though I would like a more deeper look into the other characters, and as for the humor it does repeat itself on more than one occasion but this is a comedy and should not be expected of much.
