Scissor Seven is the first Chinese animated series to be streamed as a Netflix Original which is a mite confusing considering It was made by and bought from, Aha Entertainment of Beijing, but no matter. Considering Seven more klutzes than killer is his action whirlwind, magic-sword swishing love interest, Plum Blossom Thirteen a martial artist nonpareil who’s on a mysterious mission from her master to slice and dier Seven. Scissor Seven season 2 which landed recently, was quickly optioned by Netflix when series one became a surprisingly huge success, and thankfully, it avoids overstretching itself by sticking to the 15 minutes of mayhem format of its predecessor.
With more and more anime shows competing for our attention, the genre can sometimes feel like it’s becoming washed out and diluted with a lack of original content. The mixture of adult humor from a story about a professional killer and childish jokes had fans giggling from the first episode to the last.

The ending of season 2 does make it slightly easier to guess what the storyline may be. Scissor Seven reveals he is going to kill the chief of the killer league and is preparing to leave the island with Thirteen. The show is only a Chinese language title that received a nomination in the TV film category at the 2018 Annecy International Animated movie Festival, Derderian also noted.
