Rokuro Enmadou is opposed to becoming an exorcist, even though he has the talent to be one, but an oracle gives him the title of "Twin Star Exorcist," the name bestowed upon married exorcists. Benio Adashino, the girl who receives the title along with Rokuro, is determined to exorcise all the Impurities in the world. The two find themselves wrapped up in more and more battles together as the Twin Star Exorcists, and as Rokuro watches Benio fight with the wish to become stronger, he's forced to face the weakness he's lived with ever since the Hiinatsuki Tragedy. Now that his eyes are turned toward the battle again, thanks to Benio, Rokuro makes up his mind to fight as an exorcist once more, and the Twin Star Exorcists take on the most powerful of Impurities together!

We'll be back at 3PM with another announcement!

A group of pitiable girls live their days with energy and cheer in this encouraging school comedy.

Hanakoizumi An the unlucky, Hibarigaoka Ruri of the tragic love stories, Kumegawa Botan with her perpetually poor health, Hagyuu Hibiki with her bad sense of direction, and Ekoda Ren with constant women troubles have just joined the class, and they're all doing their best to live their high school lives as happily as they can...

Happy Sunday everyone, and we've got the details on none other than for Studio TRIGGER's newest anime work and a Crunchyroll Original, KIZNAIVER!

KIZNAIVER will be airing on Crunchyroll starting Saturday, April 9 at 8:30am PST for members worldwide excluding Asia and French and German speaking Europe.


The story takes place in Sugomori, a city built upon reclaimed land that once prospered as a futuristic city. One high school boy living there, Agata Katsuhira, is somehow unable to feel any pain. One day just before the start of summer break, Katsuhira is called by a mysterious girl named Sonozaki Noriko and chosen to become one of a group of people who share one another's pain: a "Kiznaiver." Several of his classmates have also been chosen as part of this group, but they're all people from different circles who normally wouldn't associate with each other.

Sonozaki calls this an experiment for the purpose of guiding their battle-ridden world toward peace. After learning all this, many trials befall them one after another. The story of the summer experienced by these students chosen to bear one another's pain begins here!

Awesome! I am looking forward to it.

In comparison to Netflix anime originals, is Kiznaiver more of a Knights of Sidonia or a Perfect Bones?

It says "more TBA" under territories, so maybe it'll be? Anyway, I thought this was exclusive to CR outside Japan so it's strange if they end up missing territories.

I know, right? Well, they explicitly mentioned that more regions will be announced later on, but I wouldn't be surprised if half of continental Europe got excluded again somehow for whatever reason. By the way, wasn't this indeed a so-called Crunchyroll exclusive?

They are calling it a "Crunchyroll Original". If they are unable to announce all the territories of an exclusive title I think is safe to say they don't know what they are doing.

I'm kind of interested to see how this turns out after getting to see all of the voice actor interviews and behind the scenes stuff.

No it would just mean someone else has more money to spend.

They proudly announced it as an exclusive title 4 months ago and now they call it "Crunchyroll Original"... if they lose the title to someone else, doesn't matter how, it is lack of competence...

I see your careful wording and I raise you a smile

...Umm, should I apologize to you? I think I should. I'm sorry. Exclusivity is a pretty brutal/greedy tactic. The adjustment in wording is simply due to reading and adjusting to the community here, as I see it. I doubt anything in the license has changed on that wording.

Indeed, they even annouced it as a Cruchyroll exclusive four months back: "Coming Exclusively to Crunchyroll: Kiznaiver". Now suddenly it's called a Crunchyroll Original and many European regions are still unclear. This definitely raises some eyebrows after their proudful announcement some time ago.

I don't get it, why are you apologizing? After all, Crunchyroll is the one who needs to apologize to us if they have messed up. But it's a bit to early to say that, since it's still TBA. : )
