The Kizuna System is an incomplete system for the implementation of world peace that connects people through wounds. Those connected to this system are called Kiznaivers, and when one is wounded, the system divides and transmits the wound among the other Kiznaivers.
In Sugomori City, a Japanese city built on reclaimed land and with decreasing population, Sonozaki Noriko tells her classmate Agata Katsuhira: "You have been selected to be a Kiznaiver." Thus, he becomes connected to classmates whose lives and personalities completely differ from his.

interesting premise & well executed, but with a name Kiznaiver I was expecting giant robots.
Interesting premise, but it needs an extremely sophisticated backstory to make it make sense. It would be very annoying to watch the whole series, only to see it collapse under the weight of its own logic.
Great first episode to what looks to be an interesting series.
Trigger takes on the Seven Deadly Sins by connecting Pride, Greed, Envy, Wraith, Gluttony, Lust and Sloth with character types. However I doubt by just connecting these characters by feeling each others physical pain could bring world peace. Not all pain is physical. A lofty ideal with plenty of flaws but I doubt it would be enough to make these misfits (The Cunning Normal, High-and-Mighty, Goody-two-shoes, The Eccentric Headcase, The Imbecile, The Musclehead Thug and presumptious host) recognize their own faults. It does make for good series riding on the wings of the success of Kill La Kill.
