Holy shit, this episode was awesome. Probably my favourite yet. The cast is a ton of fun and they have great chemistry together, I think this episode did a great job showcasing that. Tenga playing wingman, developing Chidori and Kacchon's relationship, Maki and Yuta doing their thing, Nico being wise to their shit but still goofy as hell. All good stuff. Except they've done fuck all with Hisomu yet, I dunno what's up with that.

ALSO A++ storyboards this episode. Lots of neat shots, just a pleasure to look at.

What's you guys think of the episode?
What the fuck is Maki's deal?
Why is Nico so cute?
Why is Chidori so cute?

The premise is interesting but I feel like they aren't doing enough with it. Show feels rather wishy-washy at the moment.

Agreed, unless this is a 2-cour, in which case the pacing feels fine.

Anthony Parker

This. This episode wasn't good as much as it was the best out of a so far mediocre showing. I'm unsure why you'd start with a premise like this then spend most of the show as a dumb teen romance between a generic tsundere and an autistic teenager with no personality.

Jayden Reyes

Matthew Hall

The director pushes the direction of the story a lot more than the writer does, and it's Kobayashi's debut so we don't really know what to expect.

Tyler Brooks
Tyler Brooks

I remember episode 1 had everyone speculating some crazy bullshit conspiracy theories on the whole kizuna projects. It really got everyone intrigued with the "unique" story.

And now it's all about romance and pairings.

Just what went wrong?

Jack Powell
Jack Powell

Tenga is Kamina. Come on, even his name is an homage.

Liam Brooks
Liam Brooks

They really dropped the ball with the MCs. White is boring as fuck and Chidori is 100% anime cliche.

They could make the show about Nico, Maki, Yuta, and Tenga and it would be way better. They could even keep Purple in as a foil and for humor with Nico. The scene of here figuring out that he wanted to injure White while cutting logs was pretty good.

Angel Lewis

Yeah what the hell? So far it seems a little thin, I'm waiting for a big reveal about the truth of the project

Xavier King
Xavier King

At first people thought it would be interesting what they'd do with the premise, but so far the Kiznaiver thing pretty much just serves as a convenient device to keep the group all in one place at once. And "rag tag team of misfit teenagers with contrasting personalities become friends" is something pretty much every anime and their mom does.

Jordan Barnes
Jordan Barnes

We pretty much knew from the get-go that there was a thing between Chidori and Kacchon, and that Yuta was into Maki. The whole concept is that each character is worlds apart and connections are thus extremely difficult, so the system was meant to force bonds that otherwise wouldn't exist. Like in this episode at the end we see Mr. Emotionless coming to understand Ms. Emotional when he asks for his money back. I think that kinda thing's really nice, and for me at least that's what I'd like from the show.

Dylan Roberts

Fansub groups should fuck off and do something actually useful instead of re-subbing shows already translated, only later.

Andrew Lee
Andrew Lee

Actually, we understand more and more about the Kizuna Committee actual modus operandi with each episode.

We went from "crazy girl seems to have all the power" to "a bunch of shadowy people rule over the whole city and are funded by intellectuals all over the world to perpetuate a project which has already failed an unknown number of times"

Ian Davis

Kevin Sullivan

It's cool to see Sonozoki gradually losing significance as a villain. Like she was initially the face of the organization to us but in this episode she didn't even know what was going on.

Wyatt Clark

Charles Ward

Chidori getting embarassed at Tenga complimenting her was cuter than her moment with Katsuhira, honestly.

He's probably just very picky/childish or following some bullshit nonsense fashionista diet.

Cooper Lopez

Logan Phillips

Matthew Foster

Oliver Cook

Rice and fish is a good combination of carbs, protein, and healthy fat. That's a very good meal, actually.

Joshua Price

Yeah but if his only eating carbs for his diet, his converting all those into fat.

Carter Adams

Parker Stewart

Depends on how much rice you eat.

Thomas Stewart

No, it's because they just don't eat very much in general.

Andrew Bell

He said he eats eggs and ground meat for protein, which is bizarre because most people wanting to cut will strictly stick to chicken.

Jaxson Bell

That's because he's also a picky eater, in addition to wanting to be skinny.

I've always brushed after breakfast cause I figured my breath would stink if I ate right after brushing

Not like I eat fish for breakfast though

Aaron Peterson
Aaron Peterson

This. I like the characters but I am not wondering about the lack of pre-orders at all. I still don't know what kind of show it will be and what plot they'll use. So far we only ever got some episodical tests the characters had to take and the episodes always end with them succeeding.

Samuel Sanders
Samuel Sanders

You have to wait at least thirty minutes after consuming something to brush your teeth.

Also the fucking captcha wanted me to select all road signs on a picture of a shed in the tropics.
Where there are no road signs. Fuck you captcha

Kevin Taylor
Kevin Taylor

I doubt anyone has such luxuary to wait 30 minutes after eating in the morning.

Unless you always wake up early in the morning do your shits hours before your work or school, it's just impossible to practice safe and hygienic brushing.

Angel Hill
Angel Hill

Chidori might be a shit character, but at least she has a character. The MC just negates others. Hate his character. Hope he grew out of it soon and not suddenly in the last three episodes.

Mason Gonzalez
Mason Gonzalez

Well it was Trigger and shit so people expected something to speculate about but we got nothing but friendship and shipping so far and the one scene you can talk about is just the generic dark childhood memory scene most anime are starting with. Hell, MC or blue are probably clones and lived in some institute where someone experimented on them or some shit since this is the most generic answer to these kind of scenes.

Robert Campbell
Robert Campbell

I can see them in 7 episodes resolving both Yuta/Maki and Nori/Kacchon/Chidori, but not finalize Chidori/Tenga and set up plus develop plus make canon Nico/Hisomu .

Seems like there's too much relationship to satisfiably conclude in 12 episodes.

Jayden Cook
Jayden Cook

is this show actually gonna go anywhere? it's been 5 episodes and practically no plot, which is fine for a SoL but bad for this kind of show

Ethan Mitchell

What exactly do you think "this kind of show" is? It's a character drama and the show has been developing the characters at a good pace and the connections they've made are showing tangible results.

It doesn't even have actual drama and the characters haven't enough flaws to get any big development, save for MC and Sonozaki maybe.

Leo Garcia
Leo Garcia

There has been drama, there will never be what you call "real" drama because there are no true scottsman. There characters have flaws actually named specifically as the seven deadly social sins. The drama from the show is bringing those to light and forcing them to deal with them so that they can change in a positive way. If you're expecting anything other than what I just described you will never enjoy this show because you are looking at this show from an angle that does not exist. I don't know what you think you're watching, but it's not Kiznaiver.

I liked Hisomu's introductory episode but he's yet to really do anything I guess. I'm sure he'll come in to play soon enough though. His axe stuff in this episode was good.

Lincoln Rogers
Lincoln Rogers

The development is quite steady and obvious with how Maki opened up more and more with Yuta, how Kacchon get more and more familiar with feelings and the fact that Sonozaki seemed to be less and less removed from the Kiznaivers. I'm not sure where they are going with the rest though. How is Nico going to drop her act? What's Tenga's problem? Are we going anywhere with Hisomu?

With this pace, I don't think 12 eps will be enough.

Everyday Saturday i come back to watch the new episode while saying " I'll drop it after this one" but it never happens. I don't like any character except for the fatty guy but for some reason i can drop it even if i find the plot to be boring. Maybe its because it has pretty animation and its made by Trigger

But then Tenga, being the good guy that he is, told her that she should fap when she felt Kacchon with Sonozaki so that eventually she'll overwrite the pained pleasure of being cucked with personal pleasure. She'll have difficulties with this at first, but Tenga will help and support her all the way.

Adrian Phillips
Adrian Phillips

I guess I just lost the need to be 100% hype for things? Like if I'm lucky there's a show each season which sucks me right in (thanks Rakuo, thanks Macross) but it's not like stuff I'm less into aren't enjoyable. For twenty minutes a week if there's a dumb show with some cool cuts or it looks good or it makes me laugh then count me in, y'know?

They'll revisit that scene later in the series when the two have gotten along better. MC will actually start going on about love and whatnot and she'll shut him up by just pouncing on him. The 2 will fall off-frame embracing and the rest left to the audience's imagination.

I wonder why the phonecall makes her become excessively sexual just then. But she also become nicer and cooked Yuta a meal.

From the fact that she didn't want to bath together and her questions about breasts, she probably had some hang-ups about her body. Could it be a disease?

So I guess not only is she cute and smart, she has a nice body as well. Makes sense she feigned her quirks.

Sound director for this show is Toshiki Kameyama. ANN has a pretty complete staff list. Of course director oversees everything in a production, though I couldn't tell you much about this specific case. Shirobako gives pretty cool insight into how the different roles interact.

Colton Flores
Colton Flores

Also in opposition to Tenga, who had a simple outlook and doesn't complicate things.

But really, all girls in Kiznaiver seems 'heavy'. Nico puts on a facade with the excuse of belittling herself, Maki hides her past and seem to operate on her own, and Sonozaki is just a ball of mystery wrapped in some curvaceous body.

John Cooper

William Gomez
William Gomez

aww does baby want a cuddle? harden up puss.

Aaron Morgan
Aaron Morgan

Right.

She overcomplicates and overthinks things. Her reactions are always huge. She's heavy because she's overly intense in most situations making her take a lot of energy to deal with, much like carrying something heavy takes effort. This is why the ending, which Kacchon so effortlessly carrying her, has an impact. He can physically carry her when everyone else said she was too "heavy."

Asher Cooper

She is in no way heavy weight wise, she probably is on the light side considering faggot mc was able to carry her.

Andrew Howard

I mean, she got one step closer to the MC. In fact, in spite of the 'very obvious' Katsuhira/Sonozaki, Chidori is the girl who changes the MC's 'dullness', in episode 2 and 5. Sonozaki is relatively inefficient in terms of changing Katsuhira (because that's not her job?) despite the obvious interest the gut had on her.

The fact that emotional damage plays a part is something that was expected before the show aired. This episode did it well but now that it's become apparent in the show itself, I'm worried if they'll be able to keep the quality of writing without contrived plot developments.

Either way, Trigger is doing a fine job with both Kiznaiver and Luluco thus far. Color me impressed.

While I do enjoy this show and am disappointed that so many others don't appreciate it, the real tragedy of its lack of popularity is how few doujins of rapey Maki we're going to get. Maybe we'll get lucky and this scene will inspire otaku to pick up the show, and their lustful pens.

And Nico is also of course falling in love with Tenga. But then of course Kacchon manages to get through to Sonozaki, who shares the affection but not like that and you'll have a string of broken hearts.

You know what, guys? I'm starting to think the whole "face over breasts" thing Maki was going on about might be true to a certain extent.

I mean, maybe she didn't go to the bath with the other girls because there's something weird in her body.

I suppose her cold personality and the sex-crazed scene with Yuta were both caused by sexual abuse, and maybe that left scars on her body.

Maybe the girl in the ED was her sister, who was also abused by the father but Maki didn't do anything to stop him 'cause she was scared and she ended up killing herself.

Hijinks with SUFFERING. I doubt that the show will ever go fully serious, and it sure as hell isn't going to end up with any actually evil characters. I mean, everything "bad" that's happened so far has been for comic relief, and it would degrade the character driven narrative we've seen so far to just jam NERV into the show.

The girls' ability to cum multiple times in rapid succession allows the chain of cumming to continue among the boys, who require a grace period. It'll require some trial and testing to get this right, but it'll be worth it.

Chidori supposedly knew Katsuhira before he was experimented on and became weird.

So my question is. Did Chidori ever know of Sonozaki when they were little?
Or did Katsuhira only know Sonozaki for the period of time when they were confined and experimented on? At which time I am assuming Chidori wasn't present?

Joseph Barnes

Who do you think this 'angst' will come from? As of the moment, I'm thinking Chidori, who'll see Tenga's attempts to help as over-the-top and harmful to the final goal.

I'm not seeing how Tenga is the source of the contention, but maybe he'll give up on Chidori's refusing to confess to him already?

Elijah Smith

Bentley Jackson

Chidori's breakdown was the best scene of the show so far. Couldn't help but feel bad for her when she started saying that Sonozaki came and ruined everything.

On the other hand, it's also her fault for not confessing earlier and stuff. Typical anime.

You guys are delusional.
Nico never showed any signs of interest towards any boy of the group except Hisomu.

She was simply upset Chidori was hogging all the attention instead of her, a behaviour she has already shown in other occasions.

The fact she hit someone who was about to attack Tenga means nothing; the Gomorin literally screamed Tenga's name and he was the only one in the thick of battle.

I think rather than being too perfect, her problem is just being too normal. If she didn't put on the spazzy autist costume and mannerisms, she'd sink into the background like beige wallpaper.

The last 3-4 episodes will prolly be action-packed in that case, I guess.

There's a hard juxtaposition between Kizunaiver tech and everyone-else tech.

Kizunaiver system involves some sort of communication system that can transmit brain waves cybernetically. That's a big deal by itself, but it also features the ability to project true blue holograms *through the fucking skin of a person*. Making a real hologram interface is future-tech enough, but the extra oomph puts it very far out of the reach of current technology.

All while the world the characters live in seems to be set in just about the present, maybe a few years give or take. They have fucking flip smartphones (inb4 "that's just Japan idiot", many modern anime feature modern smartphones with touchscreens, whatever the fashion in Nihon might be). The Kiznaivers don't seem to have access to tech like this, yet aren't particularly surprised at its existence, maybe the part where their pain is linked but definitely not the holograms.

What gives, TRIGGU? Is the setting far enough in the future for holograms to be possible or not? Am I completely missing something or is this shit world building?

Andrew Moore

The scar tech has a level of absurdity to it (fucking confetti launchers) which lead me to believe looking into it from a logistical point of view is pointless.

Lucas Bell
Lucas Bell

Robert Williams
Robert Williams

I think the fact that this amazing, incredible technology is taken as mundane and note even noteworthy by the characters should tell you that it's either already relatively commonplace in this near-future setting, or that it's a plot device wholly irrelevant to the actual narrative.

Considering they're living in some kind of super special privately owned experimental city, I'm inclined to say the former, and the tech-level of the civilization the story is set in is much higher than our own. The similarities to our world are just there for the sake of grounding and relatability.

Sebastian Rogers
Sebastian Rogers

I'm constantly torn between thinking if the show should've been full-on comedy or full-on serious. This weird mix really kills the entire vibe. Chidori expressing everything she felt was a great scene and the plump way it was ended in really killed any mood and tension they had built with it.

While that's probably exactly what they tried to achieve, I really would've preferred if they concluded it differently.

Isaac Peterson
Isaac Peterson

It's probably going to get a bit more serious or at least more emotional now that they're starting to share psychological pain.

James Murphy
James Murphy

I was actually thinking earlier on how well they were able to shift the tone like that. High-tension campy slasher horror sets the mood for the emotional outburst really well without undermining it but also keeping it from feeling overtly sensational, and the realization of the absurdity of everything when the gang shows up offers pretty good catharsis as they connect at the end. Ultimately her "serious" problems are trivial and having it set to goof and cheese zombie mascots is good shit. You're definitely right in that they're integrating comedy with the dramatic plotlines, but I argue it's way better for it.

Oliver Wilson
Oliver Wilson

After catching up to the latest episode, its starting to get better. It feels like a reverse misunderstanding situation, where the MC actually understands what's going on and rectifies the situation pretty quickly. Felt pretty nice, and surprising coming from Okada.
