Kiznaiver [8/10]

“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. 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. 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.”

Trigger is back with another intriguing story with and their signature style of animation!! Kiznaiver, for some, can be a little slow since it focuses more on the psychological state of the main cast rather than action. It can be a little slow compared to the other Trigger anime like Kill la Kill or Gurren Lagann. BUT it’s still emotionally painful don’t get me wrong! There are some dark themes that are surround our group of highschool misfits. But again it still lacks that punch that Kill la Kill and Gurren Lagann had. Plot-wise the story doesn’t get that drastic. The opening is my favorite thing about the anime, I’m pretty sure it’s a cover/remix of a song cause it soundsfamiliar, and the animation is just ridiculous! It’s smooth and flashy, for the lack of a better term. Overall, if you like the work that Trigger does, then definitely check this one out!
