A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
Hired assassins make good money, and the work is a great way to make a living in the eyes of some people (and poultry).
Positive Role Models
Dai Bo can be mean and abusive. Scissor Seven fights, but rarely wins. Neither have an ethical problem with the work they are doing, but Scissor Seven is slightly less relentless when doing his job.
Violence & Scariness
Lots of intense fantasy violence, including beatings, getting burned by cigars, and people being severed in half by a sword. Some injuries are bloody.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Scissor Seven is a Chinese animated series geared towards older teens. Murder for hire is a major theme, and there's lots of fantasy violence to go along with it (much of which is part of humorous gags). There's also cursing, beer drinking, cigar smoking, and strong sexual innuendo, including crude references to genitals. Teen anime fans will find it funny and entertaining, but it's not intended for younger viewers.
Is It Any Good?
This irreverent Chinese series mixes comedy with animation as it follows the journey of a boy, a bird, and a murderous business venture gone wrong. It features enough genre-specific character types and fantasy violence to categorize it as an anime series. However, the quick banter and well-timed gags create lots of off-beat humor. This, combined with the show's hand-drawn scenes, give it a cartoon-like quality. If you're looking for something entertaining and different from the usual anime fare, Scissor Seven will fit the bill.
