Haven't warmed up to any of the characters, but its only the first, exposition-heavy episode.

The pain sharing concept is very interesting. From what Sonozaki said, the pain is shared. But the later scenes seem to indicate that, instead of being shared, the same amount pain was inflicted to them all. In the hallway scene, everyone seemed to feel the full weight of the punch. I'm curious if the guys will experience the pain of periods, or if the girls will feel the pain of being kicked in the balls...

I suppose it's going to be more about how do the characters deal with this weird situation than the actual Kizuna project and so on. That's probably simply a pretext to create the "six kids share their pain" premise. Could have been magic or some shit.


The system itself isn't the problem for me. It's futuristic technology and there are possible explanations for it. But I'm a little bit worried about how they use it.
First the MC was cured because they've shared the pain and the wounds. Sounds great first but it could cause a lot of troubles. Just imagine one of them drowns or more then one person is seriously injured. And what exectally means "Sharing the pain"? The first time they shared the pain and the injuries of the MC they haven't recognized it, of course not, he doesn't feel pain and after they woke up he was almost cured anyway but later when she uses the stun gun they feel his pain but he always said that he doesn't feel pain. And then it seems like they're not sharing the pain by just feeling a small amount of the whole pain. Instead everybody is feeling the whole pain. But that's the opposite of what they claimed earlier. But ok, actually that's not completely correct because even though it seems like they've explained a lot they haven't explained that much and it's possible that finding out what it means is the content of this series. So I'll wait for the next few episodes.

Right now I'm not sure if they're going to use this system as a cheap method for creating cliffhangers and emotional moments or if it will be the fundation for brilliant writing.

But I think from the opening few minutes, that's happened already. We can see that the MC was connected to the Kizuna system, he trips and cuts his hand, which gets transferred to the glowing girl. She then jumps, whilst we don't see the outcome, a massive amount of pain is transferred to him, and his hair goes white.

So my guess would be that he didn't feel pain after that because all the members of his Kizuna system circle were "dead". But since that girl was most likely Sonozaki, I'm not sure how to reconcile it all.

I dig the main character's deadpan humor.
"Those aren't deadly sins, you're just badmouthing people."
"...Are you just using this as a chance to say really mean things about me?"

This wound-sharing system is bad news for everyone connected to the main character though. Of all the people they had to be connected to, they had to get a white-haired anime boy, anime's equivalent of a redshirt.

Not a big fan of that, seemed far too rushed for my liking and I'm not sold on any of the characters. Will give it an episode or two before I drop it but really not a good start from one of the few shows I've been looking forward to this season.

I can already tell I'm gonna want the fairy girl to have her mouth sewn shut. WHY DO PEOPLE LIKE CHARACTERS LIKE THIS?!? The most prominent example I can think of is Mako. Seriously, what is the appeal of characters like this? It's worse than tsunderes!

Episode 2 will make or break for everyone. I seen it during the world premiere at anime boston and felt that It should have been a 2 part first episode like Re:ZERO. I thought it was great!

Hmm, I feel like this is going to be somewhat like Kokoro Connect. Still not sure on it, also has a strange Deadman Wonderland feel in the hospital scene. I agree with Blackatron, until next episode it is hard to have a real opinion on this since this episode only introduced characters and the general plot idea.

Hmm, I will admit that would make it interesting quite a bit more interesting.

I had the same problem with the system. A single slap had them all nearly collapsing and yet apparently it can help them survive near death injuries? While I'm intrigued about where this will go, this sort of inconsistency is going to make it difficult to become invested in the plot or setting for this story.

This one of those 50/50 shows imo. It can turn into something extremely interesting or a cliche unrealistic show with bland MC and shitty asspull ending

Ep 1

Very cool and unique concept, and this first episode started things off on the right foot. I'm really excited to see more of the character's personalities, but for now they seem like quite the interesting bunch. I liked the monologue that Sonozaki gave about the Seven Deadly Sins, and what she said about the system of shared pain. I know that "headcase" Niko is going to be my favorite. That OP was very nice to look at too.




A free spirit.

Episode 2

The first mission for the Kiznaivers is to introduce themselves to each other. But it's not a simple task as what Noriko really wants them to tell them about their deepest secret. So they answer incorrectly and feel the shock through Katsuhira. The correct answer Noriko was looking for was flushed out through obstacles to reveal that Tenga is afraid of dogs, and Nico making up all that fake stuff with fairies. Then it's Yuta's weigh problem, Katsuhira is not interested in himself even though he used to be a funny guy, and lastly Chidori is in love with Katsuhira. Then it's Honoka letting everybody know she killed somebody. Talk about going to the extreme to flush out the dark corners of each person's personalities, but in the end these kids are messed up and need to be taught a lesson.
