Since Xana is having some issues in real life, i’ll be posting about Kokoro Connect instead. So here we go. One of the trademarks of a great anime is making you totally forget you’re watching two-dimensional approximations of people voiced over by people in soundproof booths, and truly breathing life and vitality into the characters. After a rough start, Kokoro Connect is proving adept at this, turning in another emotional powerhouse. With a title like “A Confession and Death…” we knew what we’d be getting, but that ellipsis opened the possibility that the episode wouldn’t be that literal, and it wasn’t: we get two confessions and no death. Though at times, I must confess I thought they may actually kill Iori off. Turns out Heartseed is more curiously cruel than pure evil (he even thinks to safeguard her phone by tossing it to Taichi before throwing her off a bridge. How considerate!)
Prior to the game, I liked how one confession spurred on another, with Inaba apparently happy to be the yenta in the middle. I liked the dangerous trick Iori played on Taichi, proving her chameleon skills, but even better was Taichi’s spirited rebuttal of Iori’s misgivings, and his sudden but welcome confession. I’ll admit to getting into the drama; Iori and Taichi’s talk leading up to their “first/last kiss” got us right there and I pumped my fists when the doctor cracked a grin, despite the fact I knew this was probably all a game/test.
I was not impressed when I first started watching Kokoro Connect but it started getting better as it goes along. This week’s episode is awesome compared to the others. I really like the way the show is going and I can finally see the potential of this anime being great. Oh and since I got a chance to write about this anime this week, I’d like to tell you guys of all the 3 females, I like Inaba the most. She might be scary for some of you but she is just awesome. Can’t seems to like the other 2 that much. Well that is all for now, lets hope Xana will be back by next week. Thanks for reading.
