A boy with magic scissors cuts the hair of a girl whose hair can’t be cut.
This sounds like the dumbest premise ever (okay, it is the dumbest premise ever) but I enjoyed the first episode. First of all, I think the main female and male have some good chemistry. Whenever they’re together things just seem to flow together smoothly.
Second, Crime Edge takes itself seriously just the right amount. It’s still able to laugh at all the hair stuff like the joke it is. But at the same time, the show enables us to take these characters’ ridiculous problems somewhat seriously, which is an impressive feat.
Finally, I like all the corny talking about “killing goods” and the appearance of those two psychotic killer girls. Things could get interesting with this setup. With that said, this could just as easily turn into a barber shop harem and fall apart completely.
