Having very little to do with either pumpkins or scissors, Pumpkin Scissors is a bizarrely titled anime, but one that has a lot going for it. Set after a war between the empire and the republic (we aren’t given specific details, just go with it), we follow the daily runnings and adventures of the Pumpkin Scissors, a military group set-up as “war relief”. They’re pretty much a propaganda tool used to convince the public that the military gives a damn about the poor, ill, and starving. Unfortunately for the militaries top brass, Pumpkin Scissors is lead by Alice Malvin, who happens to be an honourable soldier as well as a member of the social elite. This makes her the perfect focus »
