  • Beautiful, but story was less than perfect
    I always watch everything Trigger churns out from their studio, but this fell a little short from my expectations. It has an interesting concept, yes, but the execution could be better. The animation was great with one of the most "colorful" cast of characters in recent years. I have a problem with half of the characters, as their personalities are off-putting to me and don't show much promise in ...

  • I love this anime so much!
    As short and sweet as it is, this anime made me cry a lot. It was so nice and I loved the idea of people "sharing" feelings the way they did! It was like a weird imprint in a way and it makes you wish in some ways you had that connection with others -- or at least that's how it made me feel. I love this anime and it'll always have a place somewhere in my life!

  • Wait its over already?
    I watched this all within one night and 3 episodes the following evening and was brought to tears MULTIPLE times. This show is wonderful and truly worth everyone's time to watch. Sad that its over but it truly is something that I will be recommending to everyone. The relationships between characters were so realistic and the interactions between everyone kept you constantly on your toes. Its just ...

    My Personal Review Of Kiznaiver
    Overall I quite like this show. It was an emotional roller coaster of sadness. I fell in love with many of the characters and even without a Kizna I felt as if I could feel their emotional pain. And man it hurted so much I could die. And that's just an understatement. There are a few bad things. Like Noriko being a crazy b. And that childhood friend gets friend zoned cliche. God I hate that ...

  • It's somewhat interesting.
    A very interesting concept with excellent trigger animation is downplayed a bit by some truly infuriating characters. The red girl is particularly grating. Overall I wouldn't recommend Kiznaiver, but I don't think it was the worst thing I've ever seen.

  • Compelling SciFi that doesn't overdo it
    I'm new to anime so I've not seen many to form a broad foundation of what is good or bad. However, I do know what I like. And I thoroughly loved Kiznaiver. The opening credits were visually stunning with a terrifically memorable theme.
    The story itself is more of a drama, sprinkled with the essence of science fiction. Yes, the characters are part of a very dangerous experiment. But, their ...

  • Society experiment if everyone shared pain
    Kiznaiver has a very intriguing premise. It's about a social experiment about a group of teenagers who share pain, like if one person felt pain, then the rest would feel pain too. All the members of this experiment have very different personalities, so when they are all thrown together, the relationships and dynamics within the group causes emotions to run high and drama to explode. The art style ...

  • Serious and funny at times
    I really like that this anime seemed to be able to balance seriousness and humor very well. There were parts that were very serious but had sensible humor dropped in them that lightened the theme of the story but also allowed for it to go deeper.

    The characters due to the nature of the anime, about friendship/bonds/etc. really did grow. At least the main character saw a lot of personal growth. ...

  • nice concept with good character development
    The seven sins concept is fun, the dialogue feels natural and conversational, and it is very much an ensemble show. The city is like a character, which is a great trope, and the bridge as an icon throughout is very nice. I need to write 29 more chara
