I have been feeling a great disconnect from anime as of late. I haven’t been watching very many episodes; I have been late on my reviews, and just have been rather uninterested in anime. Arcana Famiglia and Oda Nobuna the other two anime I have been reviewing just have not been doing anything for me. Well at the least Kokoro Connect episode 3 was in the right direction of what I want to see. Episode 3 was a very serious but good episode.
Himeko is not playing around. She gives Taichi a piece of her mind and is a little harsh. Himeko not only states that Taichi has feeling for Iori but that the reason he likes her is because she is weak and needs someone to cling onto. It may be the truth but Himeko should never have said that about her own friends. I think Himeko must be jealous of Taichi’s selfless attitude. Taichi always puts others before him, but I’m not sure if he is a nice a guy or a fake with an ego, that thrives over helping the weak.
Taichi’s selfless attitude comes up again when we all find out that Yui suffers from Androphobia. I had never made the connection that Yui feared men put the signs were there. She acted skittish and violent at times especially around Yoshifumi. I’m glad they gave her a real reason to fear men unlike other anime like Working. It is sad that she was almost raped in middle school. Taichi decided to teach Yui the easy way to defeat any man expect maybe Lance Armstrong. It may be a cheap shot but it works every time and it is the worst pain probably in the world. Yui really starts to trust Taichi and it seems like they will have a good relationship in the future and that could turn into a major problem for two reasons.
The first problem is that Himeko states earlier in the episode that Iori loves him. She is already fragile and unpredictable and she may take Yui and Taichi’s relationship the wrong way even of they are only friends. I don’t know what Yui’s mom said to her in this episode but it also didn’t look good. Yui needs attention or she is going to become more depressed and spiral out of control. The second reason is Yoshifumi is infatuated with Yui. If Taichi and Yui keep up the good relationship he is going to become very jealous. He could do something to sabotage Taichi during a body switch. There are other small problems like Maiko lust for Iori which could develop into a big problem if Yui and Taichi are seen together a lot. It looks like we are in for a lot of drama in the future and I can’t wait.
