Dog & Scissors (Anime Series) Review

  So watched episode 1 of "Dog & Scissors." Very sadistic, and funny. I can't remember the name of the lead character or the female counterpart that he lives with in an apartment. He's obsessed with reading books. One day while sitting in a restaurant and reading a book from his favorite author, he realizes he forgot his wallet to pay for his meal. Looking over at the owner he sees a patron in a green jacket with hoodie, rob the restaurant with a shotgun. Sitting behind the lead character in another booth, is a girl with glasses writing frantically on paper.

  The robber asks for them both to stand up and only the young man stands. He takes charge and tries to wrestle the gun away from the assailant when he points it at the girl. He ends up getting shot and dying, only to be reincarnated as a dachshund. Crying and yearning to read books, his cries for help are heard from the same woman who was in the restaurant at the time of his death. She takes him home and threatens him with scissors she keeps on her on her in a leather red protective sleeve that she wears on her thigh (similar to a garter belt). The woman is very secretive and mysterious. 

From AnimeNewsNetwork.Com: 

"The absurd mystery comedy centers around Kazuhito Harumi, a high school boy who is obsessed with reading books. One day, he is killed in the middle of a robbery — and resurrected as a dachshund dog. Unable to read in his new form, the hapless Kazuhito now belongs to Kirihime Natsuno, a sadistic novelist who uses scissors on Kazuhito to abuse him."

Opening Theme:

"Wan Wan Wan Wan N1!!" (わんわんわんわんN1!!) by Inu Musume Club

Ending Theme:

"Lemonade Scandal" (レモネイドスキャンダル) by Yū Serizawa

  The acting in accordance with the animation was a 10/10, Audio was 7/10, Animation was a 10/10, Story was a 7/10.

  Overall I have to give episode 1 of "Dog & Scissors" a 7/10. I'm sure I'd rate it higher with more episodes, but so far getting into it this is what I rate it for as of now. 

  Thanks for the suggestion. 

  Have any other Anime Series, OVA's, Movies I should check out and see let me know and I'll review.
