“I want to cut you.”
The young boy, Haimura Kiri, loved to cut women's hair, and one day he happened by a western mansion on his way home from school where he met a girl with long, beautiful hair, Mushanokouji Iwai. Her hair was cursed so that no scissors could cut it.
“Killers”, “Killing Goods”, “The Queen of Hair”—Kiri was confused by all these unfamiliar terms circling Iwai, but…?
Let the love-battle story of boys and girls who possess the blood of Killers and their Killing Goods begin!
