Okay okay okay okay... Chinese anime.. It's not often I watch it, but when I do, I often find myself to drop it after 5 minutes. But Cike Wuliuqi (Killer Seven) is something for itself. Let me tell you why.
(Btw, I have no idea how to rate this because aahh I just find it difficult on this one so I am just not going to try)

Killer Seven is a short chinese animation that has a very simple plot. It is funny, yet dark. It can tell the story of something extremely sad, and turn the whole thing around. I have several times found myself after an episode just thinking about certain stuff, about how we treat each other, our family etc.

The characters are also very simple, but the whole thing is so well thought out that the characters and plot brings the best out from each other. 

It's all great, really. Let's talk about the animation, since that is often what decides if people are going to continue to watch it or not.
Honestly, I find it refreshing and artistic. You can see that this is not the average type of animation style that is similar to most other animes, or to have that CGI that most people don't like.
I find the animation style to make the fighting scenes very interesting and fun to watch. It's crispy and exciting. 

The sound is also very good. The music and small sound effects helps so much with the experience of it all. 
I have also gotten the impression that the team that has made this animation is not any big producers, which makes this work even more amazing in my opinion. 

If you are one that is wondering if you should watch it or not, go for it. Try at least 3 or 4 episodes before knocking down the final hammer on if it is worth it or not. Especially if you like a more funny, easy but action filled show based around a world with assassins.
If there is a season two then I am sure there will be even more action to come, which I hope for! I do not regret watching this.

This is an amazing donghua (chinese anime) I liked the animation, character designes. It has got a peculiar style. Soundtrack is awesome! I don't know th exact episode but I think it was 4th one, when seven was fighting with crazy dog, a music started to playing but... Really an amazingly funny music. :D (Chinese ppl does things like that a lot. It's not like I hate it anyways) You should check that song out. A man sings it with a shaky and funny tone. I liked Seven's design so much. And I like things like this so,,,,, you should watch it. Story was a classic one but this makes it better. In some scenes I just couldn't help but laugh so much.

(Just a part that I laughed so much you don't need to read this,if you want. It was really funny when I watched, it but when explaining it,,,,,, Umm.. Better not.)

 If I'm not wrong, in a episode, Seven was fighting in a submarine, He showed his special move. Man said that if he (seven) could move his leg, he will not invade the island. Seven threw an egg to his partner and while he was looking to him, he got cloose with an idiotic face. And the man moved his leg. 

So if you are looking for something funny,and ''action type thing'' (killer type ) just go and watch it.
