Sakura-Con to live stream Japanese premiere, panel of new Studio Trigger anime

Seattle's Sakura-Con convention announced on Tuesday that the convention will premiere the first two episodes of Studio Trigger's Kiznaiver television anime series.

Sakura-Con will premiere the anime on Sunday at 2:30 a.m. PDT. The event will screen the first two episodes, and then it will have a live stream of the early screening event in Japan, which will feature the voice actors Yuuki Kaji and Hibiku Yamamura. Attendees of the screening event at Sakura-Con will receive a free Kiznaiver poster.

The anime's setting is a fictional Japanese city named Sugomori City, which is built on reclaimed land. But as the years go by, the city's population is decreasing. One day, Sonosaki tells her classmate Katsuhira: "You have been selected to be a Kiznaiver." The Kizuna System, which allows Katsuhira to share his wounds, connects him to the classmates whose lives and personalities completely differ from his. The Kizuna System is an incomplete system for the implementation of world peace that connects people through wounds. All those who are connected to this system are called Kiznaivers. When one Kiznaiver is wounded, the system divides and transmits the wound among the other Kiznaivers.

The series will premiere on Tokyo MX, Tochigi TV, Gunma TV, and BS11 on April 9 at 11:30 p.m. The series will also air on TV Aichi and ABC Asahi Broadcasting, and it will also stream on Niconico on Sundays at 10 p.m.

Crunchyroll will stream the series starting on April 9 at 11:30 a.m. EDT.

Sakura-Con will take place at the Washington State Convention Center this weekend from March 25-27. Sakura-Con will host Reki Kawahara, abec, Masashi Ishihama, Takeo Takahashi, and Hijiri Sanpei.
