Netflix Anime series Scissor Seven
Scissor Seven is a Chinese anime series, starring a “scissor-wielding, hairdressing, bungling quasi-assassin.” Right at the beginning of the series, Seven is short of cash but then flunks a crash course in being a professional killer. This leads him to open a hair salon as a cover, where he offers bargain-priced contract killing. The professional killer has the ability to disguise himself. However, Seven’s drawback is that he often has trouble completing his assignments. Below, we give a couple of examples of our hero’s assignments from earlier episodes.
One of his assignments is a star-crossed interspecies love story. In that episode, Meow, the Chief of Cats, hires Seven to wipe out an old flame. However, after hearing the star-crossed interspecies love story, he tries to make peace instead.
Another example is where Seven is hired by the underfunded coast guard. In that assignment, his job is killing the captain of a submarine that is threatening the island.
What happens in Season 3?
According to the streaming channel, in Season 3, Seven is seeking to recover his memory but stumbles into a struggle for power among feuding factions. He leaves Chicken Island both to recover his past memories and also to protect its peace. However, after his departure, Seven makes several detours and ends up in Xuanwu, where there is a steep price on his head.
The series was first released in the original Mandarin. However, subtitles have been added and the series has been dubbed into English, French and Spanish. Season 2 came out soon after the first season in May 2020. The Netflix anime has been praised for Sharefun Studio’s superb animation.
