Katsuhira Agata is a quiet and reserved teenage boy whose sense of pain has all but vanished. His friend, Chidori Takashiro, can only faintly remember the days before Katsuhira had undergone this profound change. Now, his muffled and complacent demeanor make Katsuhira a constant target for bullies, who exploit him for egregious sums of money. But their fists only just manage to make him blink, as even emotions are far from his grasp.

However, one day Katsuhira, Chidori, and four other teenagers are abducted and forced to join the Kizuna System as official "Kiznaivers." Those taking part are connected through pain: if one member is injured, the others will feel an equal amount of agony. These individuals must become the lab rats and scapegoats of an incomplete system designed with world peace in mind. With their fates literally intertwined, the Kiznaivers must expose their true selves to each other, or risk failing much more than just the Kizuna System.

It's pretty good.

This show has really cool concept, I think. And this series managed to squeeze out some really good episodes out of it. Especially episode 10, bro. That was crazy.

With all that said, I really don't like the romantic subplot that was going on. Some of them came out of nowhere, and none of them really came to a satisfying or desirable conclusions.

And some of these character's action and demeanor.. is really questionable, and sometimes irks me. It's pretty rushed towards the end, too.

But overall, this is a cool series.

THE WORSE ANIME EVER!! My time was wasted. Okay so the main character is that emotionless, smart dude right? He is also hot in the anime. Got this recommended on my tik tok claiming he was emotionless and chill. There's this rlly kind and cute girl with brown hair who has a crush on him and has been looking out for him their whole childhood. BUT NO, he just had to chase the stupid blue haired girl that just appeared and straight up starts simping. Like the blue haired girl was only in his life for a couple years and that was when he was ...

Kiznaiver Connections: Adaptations of the Seven Deadly Sins

There are seven deadly sins: pride, envy, gluttony, lust, wrath, greed, and sloth. Many anime have incorporated the seven deadly sins as character archetypes; Kiznaiver does a great job at connecting them to an authentic high school experience.
