    Worth a watch, with just one caveat
    Pumpkin Scissors is an odd name for a slightly odd show. I watched it years ago, having purchased a DVD box set on a whim. It has an entertaining cast, and is set in a wonderful alternate universe that seems to be the rough equivalent of a post WWI Germany, just a few years after signing an armistice.

    Alice Malvin is a fiery 2nd lieutenant with (presumably) her first command, a PR / war ...

    Sign me up to defeat wartime corruption!
    Despite the unfinished nature of the show, I really enjoyed the Genki Girl/Gentle Giant dynamic of the main duo.

  • Great anime wish they continued
    It is a very interesting anime it changes around episode ten or so i think and i wish they could have done more back round into his past as part of 901 but they had to cut it short i hope they decide to continue this but kinda doubt it since its from 2007 still a person can hope.

    A slightly better than average show.
    This is a tough show to rate.

    I liked the fact it deals with the difficult period of adjustment and recovering from a major conflict.

    I liked the plot twist of the 900 series units.

    The characters were overall likable and there are a few nicely timed comedic moments..

    Yet it really doesn’t come together in a manner that would put in most people’s top 25 list.
