- KIZNAIVER centers around Katsuhira Agata and his classmates in a fictional Japanese city called Sugomori City. After being selected for an experimental program, Katsuhira and his classmates are connected as “Kiznaivers” and now share each other’s pain. In a 2016 review of the series, Anime News Network’s Nick Creamer writes, “This was a show about people coming to terms with both their own feelings and the inscrutable feelings of those around them.” The title for the series is a play on words for the Japanese words for pain and bond or kizu and kizuna.
