A nonsense comical mystery. Harumi Kazuhito is a high school boy who loves books and is a fan of novelist Natsuno Kirihime. One day, he finds Kirihime writing at a cafe, about to be shot by a robber. He protects her from the attack but is killed instead. Through the supernatural power of a book-worm, he is reincarnated as a dachshund dog. Kazuhito (as a dog) writhes in a painful bookless life, when a sadistic woman carrying a pair of scissors offers him help. She is Kirihime herself. (Source: Dog and Scissors Wiki)

Amazing execution of a weird concept. Also, main girl can somehow do everything in the world. Explain that one.


Got a similar feel to Mysterious Girlfriend X. A romance with unusual circiumstances that somehow ends up being a good story.


is recomneded Anime to Watch
also if you are new to anime 🙂


ended up a lot better than I thought it was gonna be. i regret putting it off until now!


This is weird as hell, but it’s fun and funny.


I liked it but, It could have definitely been better. The show just kind of lost focus and then lost me during the second half.


Stupid and meaningless, but it has its moments.



    I make bad encodes and whine about subs and if I'm feeling particularly memey, I make bad subs too!
