In Keigo's school, all the troubled kids are grouped into one class -- the troublemakers, the abused kids, and the scarred ones. There's a quiet kid in his class named Asato who never talks to anyone, and like Keigo, doesn't want to go home after school. One day after class Keigo cuts himself, and the two of them discover that Asato has the ability to absorb the wounds of others. What wounds will Asato heal, and what scars does he himself carry...?

Mixed Feelings
Note: the following comes from a video review, links on my profile page.

Kizu holds a certain premise, but, probably due to the author's self-professed reluctance in writing it, doesn't quite follow up to its possible potential. It introduces dark themes, but doesn't very much counteract them with a kind of release or catharsis, and in some instances seems to be illogical (e.g. in suggesting anything positive might happen, at the end, when proof wasn't forthcoming).

It is, in this sense a bit like Narutaru the anime, in that it is unfinished, but also presents a case of negativity with no definite conclusion. On the other ...
