    Riveting Character Designs, Unique Dark Storyline. Truely A Guilty Pleasure.
    Before I begin this review, this anime surely is not for everyone. Not everyone can stomach the amount of 'weird' things that happen in this anime. But that, is what makes this anime stand out the most to me.

    It was almost painful to watch as the story progressed. How eerie the characters could get, you could almost sense the chaotic history of each person. I won't spoil the story, that is ...

    You'll get a little odd with a little Adult.
    The premise of the series, is just simply put by other reviewers, there are individuals with "killing goods" which are attempting to kill the main Female Lead character. However, I've found that too many reviews are trying to be too cerebral with this series. There's no "genetic predisposition", or anything as Sci-Fi as that. What you essentially have are people with cursed items. If you're ...

    I am enjoying this one
    I have been telling my co-workers about this one. I love the duality of the story, one minute its innocent and sweet like most rom-com animes and the next its erotic and dark and then back again. I also like the idea of what happens to a serial killers tools of the trade (as it were) after that killer is gone.

    Just when you thought you had already seen the strangest anime...
    I love and have watched a lot of anime and I keep finding myself surprised every once in a while thinking that I've already seen the strangest anime only for it to topped by something new. Well this one takes the cake at the moment. It's not as if cursed objects are new or murder but there is something about this that is unique. It's strangely erotic and very much adult even though they don't use ...

    Excellent Anime! Excellent Characters! Just Amazing!
    The Severing Crime Edge was one of my favorite animes out there. The relation between Kiri and Iwai was just as pleasant as the whole story. The final episode was full of direct insinuations of a second season. Personally I'm hoping for one. I really recommend this anime for people into gore, action, romance, and mystery.

    Should be well recived
    I personally liked this one it started slow and is building towards a well rather predictable outcome, however i think that this has the potential to be a really good anime in its own right.
    The art style is what is catching my eye with this one its a style that i can latch on to while following how the story ebs and flows.
    The music is also good i also liked the effects used in the fight scene ...

    Hair trimming drama?
    First impressions - not sure if it's a drama or quirky humor with teen undertones? If you could call it, about SERIOUS hair-cutting business. Haimura Kiri with skills of a 'would-be' hairstylist with a burning desire to trim ladies hair, meets his fate -- the Japanese Rapunzel. The summary interested me enough to get into it, I hope it continues and able to develop into a good show? *cross ...

    The only thing I hated was that it wasn't longer...
    I truly enjoyed this anime. It had everything I wanted: great characters, a good plot, violence, blood and a touch of sex. I wasn't disappointed. It was a little unsettling such a story line was centered around middle and high schoolers; yet that is exactly what kept my eyes glued to the TV to continue to see what happened next. Well worth my time; it would be nice to see another season...

    Interesting, but not necessarily recommendable.
    I can't say I'm sorry I watched this; the concept is interesting. But I get the feeling that the writer/developers were trying too hard to appeal too many genres, and ended up with a show that doesn't quite do it. The general story is very dark and mature, and has the power to disturb the viewer in a way that is appropriate for the subject matter (and unsuitable for younger viewers). But they ...

    gave it a chance and didnt regret
    Artwork is important for me in enjoying an anime. That said, the character designs sort of turned me off. However, I liked the plot summary enough to see if it was worth watching.

    Long story short, it was. Every episode passed by quickly and the fetishes were amusing to watch out. Give it a chance!
