Anime News Network is reporting that FUNimation Entertainment has licensed GONZO’s Dog & Scissors (Inu to Hasami wa Tsukaiyō) anime series. However, the company cannot confirm right now if it will release the series on home video. FUNimation began streaming the series on FunimationNow on November 30, 2021.
Crunchyroll began simulcasting the anime in July 2013 as it aired in Japan, and removed the anime from its catalog in August 2020. Sentai Filmworks released the series on home video in 2014-2015. HIDIVE also previously streamed the show.
The story of Dog & Scissors is described as:
Harumi Kazuhito was the ultimate bookworm, spending days at a time with his head buried in his beloved books, and little could make him happier than perusing the pages of his favorite author, Kirihime Natsuno. Unfortunately, Harumi’s life goes to the dogs – literally – when he gets himself killed while trying to stop a robber.
Thanks to the power of a true bookworm, however, Harumi inexplicably finds himself reincarnated as a dog… which might not be so bad if dogs could read. Or if the woman who adopts him didn’t have twin predilections for playing with scissors and tormenting her new pet. But what truly makes this strange reincarnation the worst of all possible worlds is that she’s also his favorite author. The horror. Can Harumi find a way to live with this tantrum-throwing typist, or will her crazed clippings prove to be his undoing?
