Sentai Filmworks has announced that the company has acquired the license for The Severing Crime Edge anime. The company plans to release the series digitally, with a home video release to follow later in 2013.
The series revolves around Kiri Haimura, a boy who loves to cut girls’ hair. He happens to meet Iwai Mushanokoji, a girl with long, beautiful hair who is known as the “Queen of Hair.” Her hair has been cursed to be forever uncuttable, but Kiri happens to have “Dansai Bunri no Crime Edge” — scissors that have the mystical ability to cut her cursed hair. Kiri finds himself protecting Iwai from descendants of murderers wielding “Killing Goods.”
The Severing Crime Edge premiered in Japan on April 3, 2013, and Crunchyroll is simulcasting the series as it airs in Japan.
