Made by the minds at Trigger studio and first aired on Tokyo Broadcasting System in 2016, Kiznaiver is a fascinatingly innovative, visually striking, and emotionally resonant anime series that explores deep philosophical and psychological themes while incorporating sci-fi, drama, and a sprinkle of romance.

Kiznaiver explores an experimental premise: what if pain could be shared equally among a group of people? Set in Sugomori City - a city built on reclaimed land that has seen better days - it tells the tale of seven high school students who become unwitting participants in an audacious social experiment known as the "Kizna System."

The series protagonist, Katsuhira Agata, is a seemingly emotionless boy with a curiously high threshold for pain. Katsuhira doesn't understand the pain that he feels until the day he meets the mysterious Noriko Sonozaki, who introduces him to the Kizna System. This system makes him a "Kiznaiver," forcing him to share all his pain, physical and emotional, with six other individuals who all carry their own unique emotional burdens. The Kiznaivers include an eclectic group consisting of a cynical loner, a cheerful yet two-faced peacemaker, a domineering honor student, a brash jock, an eccentric classic otaku, and a seemingly carefree womanizer.

The Kizna System, an invention born out of a desire for world peace, seeks to make shared pain the route to shared understanding and empathy. As these seven Kiznaivers carry on their lives, the pain they share helps them to better understand each other. The series ingeniously uses this premise as a way of exploring deeper human connections, collective empathy, and the real meaning of friendship.

However, sharing the depth of one's emotional and physical pain is no easy task, and the series does not shy away from portraying its inherent difficulties, drawbacks, and miscommunications. As the series progresses, these connections and mutual understandings are often challenged by the Kiznaiver's individual circumstances, leading to personal development and growth that’s captivating to track.

Supplementing the show's thought-provoking narrative is its bold, vibrant art style. With striking color contrasts, dynamic character designs, and high-quality animation brought to life by Trigger studio, the visuals of Kiznaiver are just as fascinating as its premise. Each character is crafted carefully with unique aesthetics that reflect their deep individuality, and the show consistently presents visually impressive scenes that can range from terse dramatic moments to explosive action sequences.

Character relationships are undoubtedly the heartbeat of Kiznaiver. The progression of the relationships is not only compelling in character development but also in generating a wide range of raw and authentic human emotions, adding to the anime's emotional depth. The parents of each Kiznaiver vary in their abilities to cope with their children's condition, and their struggles provide additional layers to the narrative.

Music is another strong point of Kiznaiver. From its extremely catchy opening theme to the highly evocative background tracks, the anime delivers a top-notch auditory experience that astral projects emotional stakes of every scene.

Moreover, the series does not completely alienate viewers who are looking for some light-heartedness and romance in the midst of the profound thematic concerns. There are plenty of humorous moments interspersed throughout the series, well integrated into the storyline so as not to break the narrative flow. There is also a dynamic and evolving romantic subplot that adds another layer of complexity and emotional intensity.

Furthermore, the series' exploration of the varied and complex terrain of human emotion is vivid and genuine, driving home its themes beautifully and in a way that leaves an enduring impression. It raises intriguing questions about empathy, connection, friendship, and identity in a modern world increasingly marked by isolation and individualism. This makes Kiznaiver a truly thought-provoking watch, one that does not shy away from exploring darker, less charted areas of the human psyche.

In summary, Kiznaiver is a unique blend of pacing and introspection that challenges viewers' understanding of pain, empathy, and human connection. With its unusual premise, beautiful visuals, compelling narrative, and heart-stirring character dynamics, it stands out as a distinctly memorable anime that effortlessly combines elements of drama with speculative fiction, while providing emotional depth and complexity.

KIZNAIVER is a series categorized as a new series. Spanning 1 seasons with a total of 12 episodes, the show debuted on 2016. The series has earned a moderate reviews from both critics and viewers. The IMDb score stands at 7.0.
