The production company Pony Canyon have released the first promotional video of anime adaptation of Tatsuhiko Hikagi’s Dansai Bunri no Crime Edge manga. The anime will premiere in spring 2013.

He meets Iwai Mushanokoji (Kotori Koiwai), the “Queen of Hair” whose hair can’t be cut due to a curse. Kiri finds out that his scissors, Dansai Bunri no Crime Edge, are the only thing that can cut her hair. Kiri must then protect Iwai from murderers wielding “Killing Goods.”
Yuji Yamaguchi (Fate/stay night) will be directing the series at Studio Gokumi (Oda Nobuna no Yabo, Saki), Tatsuhiko Urahata (Monster, Saki) is the series’ scriptwriter and Katsuzo Hirata (Angel Beats!, Hand Maid May) is the character designer.
