Dog & Scissors is a 2013 anime series created by GONZO and directed by Yukio Takahashi. The show's premise centers around a young man named Kazuhito Harumi, who is obsessed with reading books. However, one day, he gets killed in a robbery and is reincarnated as a dachshund dog belonging to a mysterious girl named Kirihime Natsuno.

Kirihime is a sadistic, gothic lolita novelist who also happens to be Kazuhito's favorite author. After adopting Kazuhito and giving him the name "Sakura," Kirihime discovers that Kazuhito has the ability to understand human language and communicate with her.

Despite Kazuhito's new canine form, he still has his human intellect and personality, which causes him to clash with Kirihime's dominant personality. However, Kirihime soon discovers that Kazuhito has a talent for solving mysteries and enlists his help to investigate different cases that she comes across, utilizing his ability to understand human language and his unique perspective as a dog to solve the mysteries.

Throughout the show, Kazuhito faces a range of challenges as he adjusts to his new life as a dog and works alongside Kirihime to solve various mysteries. Along the way, he also interacts with a diverse cast of characters, including other dogs with unique personalities and humans who are connected to the different cases they investigate.

The show's animation style is colorful and vibrant, with a mix of traditional hand-drawn animation and computer-generated imagery. The character designs are distinctive and memorable, with Kirihime's gothic lolita costume being a standout. The soundtrack is also noteworthy, with a mix of upbeat and dramatic music that complements the show's comedic and suspenseful moments.

Overall, Dog & Scissors is a unique and entertaining anime series that will appeal to fans of mystery, comedy, and animal-related content. The show's premise is quirky and inventive, with a strong emphasis on character development and relationships. Blake Shepard, Logan Wilson, and Jessica Calvillo deliver standout performances as Kazuhito, Kirihime, and the rest of the cast, bringing the characters to life with humor and heart.
