Scissors Seven is Netflix’s action comedy animated series that centers around a 21-year-old hair stylist whose assassin past relentlessly pursues him, despite his complete lack of memories. The series initially started off on a light note, with banter and comedy being the primary focus. However, entering season 4, it undergoes a complete 180-degree turn, as scenes turn dark and intense kung fu and sword fights take center stage.

Scissors Seven season 4 delivers some of the most jaw-dropping action sequences, featuring many of the top assassins in the game. It sends sparks flying with battles featuring Green Phoenix, Red Tooth, Seven, Black Bird, White Fox, Shimen, Manjusaka, and the leader of the Shadow Assassins himself. The animation team does a phenomenal job executing the fight sequences’ incredible choreography.

One of the best aspects of the donghua is the significant evolution it has undergone over the span of four seasons. Season 4 manages to set aside the comedy and focuses solely on presenting quality, intense battles. It takes a methodical approach to character development by showcasing significant past experiences, then engages in a fierce battle to capitalize on the momentum.

What truly makes the fights stand out is the versatility with which they have been choreographed, using weapons and techniques in ways never imagined before.

Scissors Seven season 4 dedicates extensive effort to building up its characters as well. The first character explored is Black Bird. The episode focuses on the rivalry with the Whitebirds, leading to the near-extinction of the Blackbirds. The fight utilizes the Thousand Demon Dagger in unimaginable ways.

White Fox is another formidable figure who almost seems indestructible until Red Tooth comes along. While a fair bit of work has been put into building up the character of Red Tooth, his depiction throughout the section paints him as a very weak fighter and dampens anticipation for his fight.

But the Netflix Chinese animation primarily revolves around Green Phoenix and his rivalry against the Leader of the Shadow Assassins. The fight spans the entire season, but it’s well worth the time invested. It delves into Green Phoenix’s past, revealing him to be much more than an indifferent brick wall.

It’s almost mind-boggling to imagine the extent to which he goes to have one shot against the Leader, all for the chance to be blown away to save his pupil. The intense character-building is followed by an even more intense fight sequence, making it the standout action sequence of the season.

Scissors Seven season 4 also touches on Seven’s talks of restoring his memories, and we may just be close to getting a glimpse into his past in one of the next seasons. This is certainly the most anticipated revelation of the entire series.

Overall, Scissors Seven season 4 is nearly perfect, with the only drawback being one redundant episode. The episode delving into the personality of the Ordinary Assassin is fairly superfluous and doesn’t serve a greater purpose. However, it’s quite short and doesn’t significantly detract from the overall storyline.

The Netflix series is an amazing watch and perfectly caters to the desires of viewers. Short episode time, stunning action choreography, mesmerizing visuals, and more make Scissors Seven the holy grail for its target audience and definitely a must-watch!
