TIME OF THE SEASON Spring 2016 Edition: KIZNAIVER

Now, the show that most people (especially myself) have been looking forward to. Something we know very little about and that’s a good thing. Once again, Studio TRIGGER, the minds behind the brilliant series Kill La Kill, Little Witch Academia, Ninja Slayer (still good), Inferno Cop (funny as hell) and more recently in this season as well Space Patrol Luluco (fun and cute, too)….Oh, and also from writer Mari Okada (who is also writing The Lost Village this season) brings us…….

Plot Summary: The fictional Japanese city named Sugomori City is built on reclaimed land. But as the years go by, the city’s population is decreasing. One day, Sonosaki tells her classmate Katsuhira: “You have been selected to be a Kiznaiver.” The Kizuna System, which allows Katsuhira to share his wounds, connects him to the classmates whose lives and personalities completely differ from his. The Kizuna System is an incomplete system for the implementation of world peace that connects people through wounds. 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.

First Thoughts: This is something that is a far cry from TRIGGER’s usual output as what we got is more on the serious side of things and I like that this is something different from the studio since they are usually associated with their wackiness and crazy style and this one still has a style to it with something that. They have came up with some interesting concepts in the first episode from the Kizuna System to being a Kiznaiver. Plus, it’s also something you never want to be a part of since that shit really does hurt if one of your connected people gets hurt or dies and it’s also interesting and a bit tense that since the main character said that he doesn’t feel any pain yet when he’s a Kiznaiver and his pain affects others, something compelling is bound to happen later on and I hope the show has a good amount of episodes to do that or at least plan it right.

CONTINUE ON!!!! You knew I was going to anyway.

I’m MAK2.0 aka The Blue Hybrid and I wonder how to kick someone’s ass by using their own ass. Hehe.
