Storyline

A group of young students are chosen for the Kizuna System, an experimental bond which connects people together and enables them to feel each others' wounds and pain. All those who are connected to this system are called Kiznaivers; when one Kiznaiver is wounded, the system divides and transmits the wound among the other Kiznaivers. For one summer, these lives will be tied together. Can the Kizuna system work out for these young lives and for the world?

Pretty good.
27 January 2019 | by invisibleunicornninjaSee all my reviews

This is a series with fantastic animation, pretty visual design, and extremely well written characters. Its funny for the most part, but when it needs to be serious, I believe that it was very impactful. While some of the things concerning the experiment weren't really explained, I don't care because the series is much more focused on character relationships and it does that very well all the way to the end.

I would highly recommend watching this.
