From a story perspective, it makes perfect sense for the hair to grow back. The hair cutting fetish was the main "hook" that made this show a little different and unconventional. It would be odd for her to get it cut in the first episode and abruptly end the more bizarre element of their relationship.

Second ep was actually reasonably well adapted.

And I swear, Iwai's CV is too cute

Another solid episode, OP and ED are pretty nice too.

Well, Crime Edge didn't lift her curse to begin with, only the result of it. The cause likely lies elsewhere.

Of course, I didn't get the impression from the way he treated the scissors, but well...
NOOO WONDERRRRR!!!!!

But yeah at first I wasn't thinking about watching this but glad I did. A very...Black Butler x Seikon no Qwaser feel in my opinion. More Black butler than anything. I look forward to seeing what goods others have.

Hmmm... anyone know how many cours this show is? The manga has six volumes out currently so if studio wanted to this could probably be 2 cours. With the pace the show is moving at it, might also suggest a longer airing than 13 episodes.

Koiwai Kotori plays Iwai. Do you mean her voice is cute (I agree) or her appearance and behaviour (I also agree)?

I watched this anime because of the long black haired heroine and word "crime" at the title. At first I thought this was G-sen jou no maou anime adaptation with Usami Haru as a heroine. Too bad, other than her hair, Iwai doesn't resemble Usami Haru at all.

Nothing special from this anime and I'm still not sure if i should drop it or wait for the 3 episode rule.

And probably not coincidentally, another character with very long hair.


OT: So Iwai's hair grows back after it's cut? I guess that will satiate his (hair) killing desires for quite some time.

Not really that long. Kigu was the blond one. You're probably thinking of Kukuru.

@Chiibi: I feel like I'm watching the love child of Nazo no Kanojo X and Mirai Nikki.

So technically, Kiri can experiment with Iwai's hair for a new style everyday. That should be fun

This was actually the first thing that I realized when they said her hair regrows.

We better get treated to new hairstyles from time to time or I'm going to be very sad!

stacking on the fetishes in episode 3.

Not only hair-cutting, but peeing as well.

Kiri going all inversion impulse on the giant with the hammer was cool. Looking forward to when he be able to do 17 cuts in one pass.

Last scene of the morning after was funny. He tells his friend to cover for him, and the friend heard iwai's voice, then next morning, both of them show up, and both are still sleepy as if they weren't able to sleep during the night.

After credits scene is confusing. Guess there's another killing goods user, since I wonder how that giant managed to hang himself with his tendons cut.

their hair-touching (shades of GJ-bu there :) & hair-cutting scenes always gets me...like making love everyday with even the "after" feel and atmosphere

He should become a world class hairstylist, with a model like Iwai, as daily practice, good for him her hair grows daily ^^ that said i'm not that much of a fan of iwai's hairstyle a the start of ep3, the short twin tails, it's not very flattering. hope he (or rather the shows animators /designers )becomes more imaginative as the show goes on. Also her hair is not only long it seems but also absolutely healthy right down to the tips , as in no split ends, no damages, always shiny etc. no wonder it looks good, smooth and tangle free all the time.

Kiri's fight was short but good, he seems to be one of the deadlier Authors around with a heavy, record breaking notorious ancestor to boot. His Crime Edge is absolute in cutting human flesh, no defense there you can only block with another Killing good, or dodge it.But then coupled with his apparent hyper agility. He is quite deadly. Norma Grayland doesn't seem to be a historical figure, cant find any in google.

Btw, since Kiri is already a barber, can we expect some pies or cakes anytime soon?

Iwai wetting herself...didn't see that coming XD Made me feel sorry for her though

The whole awkwardness of them being together in the same room at night was pretty funny And then the fight between Kiri and the big hammer guy, although short, was pretty epic.

I was actually asking myself how the big hammer guy managed to smash through the wall without making any sound and alerting them, but I thought about it and he may have synced his shot with the banging of the thunder which blocked out the sound of the wall getting smashed down.
