Pumpkin Scissors anime @ ANIMAX this August 2009

Three years have passed since the ceasefire stopped the war between the Royal Empire and the Republic of Frost. The Royal Empire continues to be in chaos with widespread hunger and plague, and is constantly ravaged by soldiers-turned-bandits.

With the aim of providing war relief and restoring peace and order to the war-torn Royal Empire, the Imperial Army State Section III platoon is formed with the codename ‘Pumpkin Scissors’.

Led by female protagonist 2nd Lieutenant Alice L. Malvin, the platoon ‘cuts’ like scissors through pumpkin-like layers of lies, power and money that the corrupted hide behind. The story takes an interesting turn as male protagonist and veteran tank-hunter Randel Oland joins Pumpkin Scissors…

Pumpkin Scissors is based on the manga series of the same title that was named in the list of top teenage graphic novels in 2007 by the Young Adult Library Association, a division of the American Library Association.

Pumpkin Scissors premieres on August 20, 2009
Every Mon-Fri at 7.30pm only at ANIMAX
