It is the only Chinese language title that received a nomination in the TV film category at the 2018 Animated Film Festival. Its English dub is also available on Netflix.

The official synopsis of the web-streaming platform, calls Scissor Seven’s hero as “quasi-assassin” who seeks to recover his memory and stumbles into a struggle for power among “feuding factions.”
