Seven strangers are linked together and share each other’s pain (only they aren’t really strangers and the motivations behind this action are pretty spurious at the moment).
Review of Episode 4:
For all the hype around Kiznaiver, I’ve been routinely disappointed as the anime used shocks and (un)comedic moments with a cast that has been difficult to like. Episode four finally overcomes the latter with the cast starting to feel more genuine in their roles even as two of the characters fight it out for title of king weirdo. The plot continues to be riddled with holes (not mysteries, holes) as random events are mentioned once and never again and explanations that explain nothing are accepted. The animation style remains unusual but at times the characters seemed off during this episode, distractingly so.
And I’m out of words – but I’ll just mention that the theme song continues to be the most enjoyable part of the show. That and the school counsellor really needs to change careers.
Kiznaiver is available to watch on Crunchyroll.
