Today is the day to salute one of the most successful anime of recent years: Scissor Seven. The series’ 3rd installment recently aired on Netflix and proved once again that an anime should not be necessarily be originated from Japan to be successful. Yes, you heard it right. Scissor Seven is a Chinese anime and it’s racing against Japan’s masterpieces in a highly competitive sector.
Now that fans fell in love with the Season 3 of the series questioning, when is the Scissor Seven Season 4 release date and whether or not there is a trailer for it.
Scissor Seven Characters
The anime is focusing on the main character, Seven, who is a young barber with amnesia. However, this plain life is only the tip of the iceberg as Seven is a far more complex character than we realize.
In contrary to his ordinary living style on days, he gets a deep dive into the world of the criminals at night as a hitman. And yet, her amnesia prevents him from being excellent in this unique profession since he lost part of his memory and now struggling in remembering all the knowledge he has regarding being a hitman. Thus, he has to start very beginning to go back to her good old days as an expert hitman, which leads her to be in pretty difficult and yet funny situations.
The anime is known for its over-the-top scenario that has not only the action and adventure but also the comedy and quirkiness in it. The series is known worldwide especially among anime fans thanks to Netflix’s labeling of it. In China, however, the series was released on other platforms such as Bilibili, Tencent Video, Youku, iQIYI, and Sohu Video.
When is Season 4 of Scissor Seven coming out?
Will there be a season 4 of Scissor Seven. Well, so far, both the showrunners and Netflix seem quite silent about the issue, enjoying the recent release of Season 3. Nevertheless, rumor has it that the anime was already planned to be having 10 seasons in total, meaning that we will get to see seven more seasons of this brilliant show. Even if this was not the initial plan, we would not be surprised to see that Scissor Seven would last for years more.
The ratings of the anime are pretty impressive as its score on MyAnimeList, which is 8.2, tells it all already. Still, we need to acknowledge that Netflix is still relatively new in handling Chinese content. Thus, we expect the streaming platform to be dependent on the decisions coming from the Chinese side when it comes to the future of the series. And this decision will be determined by how the Chinese audience will react to Season 3.
Unfortunately, we will have to wait a bit longer to see what will the response of the Chinese to this brand new season as it will not be broadcasted in the country until January. As long as the Chinese creators of the show continue to release the anime, we believe Netflix would also be thrilled to stream it worldwide.
Scissor Seven Season 4 Release Date
Since there is a lack of official confirmation on a Season 4, this highly expected season also lacks a trailer for now. Still, if our expectation becomes true and we get a Season 4 of the series, it would probably be aired around October 2022, following a similar path to the previous seasons. Its trailer, on the other hand, would reach us at the end of Summer 2022.
