Kiri meets Iwai for the first time and falls in love with her long, black hair. He asks Iwai to let him cut her hair. However, Iwai explains her hair is cursed and cannot be cut. Kiri attempts to cut Iwai's hair but fails. Houko and Yamane arrives to find Kiri and Iwai who are looking each other in the eyes. Houko and Yamane send Kiri home and inform him not to visit Iwai again. At home, Kiri thinks about Iwai and declares she is the only one for him. Meanwhile at school, Misumi Kashiko remarks how hair makes a girl, and she is shocked how cold Kiri is. Naruto comments on how one student (Yamane) looks like a murderer. Back at Iwai's home, Iwai shares that she wishes to go to school. Kiri notices that Iwai longs to have normal hair.

Then, the Byouinzaka sisters arrive. Houko remarks how Iwai replaces her dead father with Kiri as her new daddy. She grabs Iwai's hair and yanks it, and she yells to Iwai not to have others shoulder her burden. Yamane warns Kiri not to intervene as Houko hurts Iwai. Afterwards, Kiri goes home angry, and when his grandfather asks Kiri if he's angry with his name, Kiri demands his grandfather to tell him about his ancestor's name. Kiri researches that his ancestor is a murderer who cuts and severs his victims with a scissor. Kiri thinks his scissors are the "Killing Goods" that Iwai was talking about. Later that night, Kiri visits Iwai to cut her hair. He successfully cut her hair. Iwai is overjoyed with her new hair. She and Kiri decide to name the scissors, the Severing Crime Edge.
