Now his stuffy and complacent behavior makes Katsuhira a constant target for the attackers, who explore him for blatant sums of money. But their fists can only make it blink, because even the emotions are far from enough.

However, one day Katsuhira, Chidori and four other teenagers are kidnapped and forced to join the Kizuna system as official "kiznaivers". Those who participate are connected through pain: If one member is injured, the others will feel an equal amount of agony. These individuals must become the laboratory rats and scapegoat goats of an incomplete system designed with world peace in mind.
