Kiznaiver Episode 11: Katsuhira with the initiative


Being Sonozaki is so much suffering...

Oddly enough, I agree with Nico here. Come on, Katsuhira...stop using amnesia as an excuse!

I can't tell whether I'm supposed to take these guys literally or not. To be fair, taking this literally means that getting the Kizuna System removed from them has blurred their memories of their summer together, which is kind of a dumb thing to introduce in the final episodes of the show. So I'll take the optimistic route and interpret this as the standard "we used to be so happy, but now that just feels like a distant memory". Because, you know...that's way cheerier!

Maybe it's weird, but I tend to like stuff like this...the announcer on the TV declares "thinking time" to relate to Katsuhira's real situation. Then, Katsuhira stands up as if he's thought of something when the announcer declares that the answer is correct. I honestly can't get upset at this.

Normally, I wouldn't mind something like this at all. Katsuhira's character change is clear after meeting his friends and it's decent progress for him. But he's apologizing to Chidori and that's somewhat annoying...for some reason.

Holy crap finally! Granted, I still believe that the scene with Tenga could have very easily happened at the start of this week's episode (it might have saved the use of the flashback), but this realization is finally happening!

Not a single thing going on right here is weird...nothing at all! Just two bros hanging out, am I right?

Even though we started the series out with Urushibara saying something like "I only care about Nori-chan", it feels like Yamada does a much better job of actually following that principle.

I was confused by this a bit at first, but then Katsuhira referred to himself as "gudon" when he returned to class. Isn't that the sin of the "new seven deadly sins" that Sonozaki assigned to Katsuhira in the first episode of the series?

The power of friendship!

Ahh...the awkward scene where everyone finally realizes they were true friends all along. Not bad, I guess...might be a bit cheesy, but I'm dead inside, so can I really complain?

What exactly is the plan here? Is she going to take on everyone's pain, so she can connect them all through the Kizuna System?

Well, next week finishes it up. Let's see where this all goes. Time to save Sonozaki with the power of friendship!

    I'm not all that optimistic about Nori's plan here. It doesn't seem like there is any way for this to end well and her motivation is cloudy at best at this point. It doesn't seem like anything she has done would help her friends, or her, and what does she expect to gain if the system still doesn't work the way it was originally planned? Oh well. We'll find out next time.
