Kiznaiver Final Episode (12): Well, that was a lot of tension for nothing

Nope…totally not suspicious. This is why I don’t take random flyers.

Haha what’s going on here? Sonozaki talks as though she’s offering people some big opportunity, but then these guys are basically forcing people into it. Sounds like a great deal!

Also, random side note: Without seeing the chicks on the heads of the black version Gomorin, I would never have noticed that those were eggs on the heads of the white version.

Eh…I’m really not a fan of this explanation. It feels like such an arbitrary reason to make Sonozaki different from everyone else. Especially since I feel like she couldn’t possibly be the only person that feels this way (for example, why doesn’t Nico trigger the same interaction?).

I seriously hate these two. They’re clearly throwaway characters, but they’ve been put into the series just to explain to the main characters what the antagonists are planning.

Random lens flare. Also, “cell phones don’t work in a crisis” cliche.

Thanks, Maki, for acting exactly the same way you did before your big character growth arc.

This entire scene looks important and all, but when you take a step back and analyze it, you realize that the entire scene is establishing that these guys are already friends. They established this last week…come on.

Does she really think the only reason those kids were friends was because they were connected by the Kizuna System? I honestly don’t know how to feel about that.

Uhh…run that by me again, Nico.

[HorribleSubs] Kiznaiver - 12 [720p].mkv_snapshot_14.10_[2016.06.25_19.57.11]

There’s something…off…about the way this scene plays out. Doesn’t it seem too easy that Sonozaki turns?

This is the part where everyone gets upset about Nico losing, right?

[HorribleSubs] Kiznaiver - 12 [720p].mkv_snapshot_23.10_[2016.06.25_20.10.21]

I agree…a pure relationship.

I feel like I got cheated somehow. It felt like all of this tension was built up with the idea of “Sonozaki is going to start bonding with everyone”, but she ends up bonding with basically no one. What was even the point of the black Gomorins and the surgical masks? I don’t understand. Oh well…another series over, I guess. And at the end of the day, I still don’t understand how the Kizuna System was even supposed to work…sigh.

One thought on “Kiznaiver Final Episode (12): Well, that was a lot of tension for nothing”

  1. But what about at the end where there was the gomorin that had both black and white? That was definitely symbolism or something!
