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 might not be everyone’s cup of tea, but it was /mine/. Unexpectedly good: great animation, music, and art.


Offered a good concept but the lackluster presentation and writing held it back from achieving anything noteworthy. Wasted potential.


Everyone wants to connect with each other, huh? I just wanna connect my LIFE with ANIME!


I wanted to like this show more than I did. It’s pretty but I couldn’t really get into the plot.


Don’t forget how to do basic human things. Trigger can do much better than this.


Honestly has a good concept with some interesting ideas but wasn’t executed all that well. Also an irritating cast.


good go watch it, also fuck reactions
