Kokoro Connect is back for its final 4 episodes and it wastes no time jumping right back into the story. And the questions that I’ve been dying to answer… Does Iori love Taichi? Who does Taichi pick? What happens to the CRC? Find out now!

Kokoro Connect – 13

「この五人がいれば」 (Kono Gonin ga Ireba)
“As Long as the Five of Us are Together”

This episode marks the pseudo-finale (the last episode to air) and the end of the current arc of Kokoro Connect. I always felt that this arc would focus more on Himeko/Iori’s interest in Taichi, but this episode definitely zoned in on Iori.

Kokoro Connect – 12

「雪降る街へ」 (Yuki Furu Machi e)
“Into a Snowy City”

A new opening to welcome the end of Kokoro Connect. How fitting, and I’m not being sarcastic. I think this episode has rejuvenated my appreciation for this anime.

Just when I thought that all was said and done, our characters come back with a new phenomena that reveals more about their past.

Kokoro Connect – 10

「それを言葉にするということ」 (Sore o Kotoba ni Suru toiu Koto)
“Putting Into Words”

I realize that this episode was meant to focus on Himeko and her own personal intentions in the future, but I can’t help but feel a much higher respect for Iori at the same time.

Kokoro Connect – 09

Kokoro Connect – 08

「そして誰もいなくなった」 (Soshite Dare mo Inakunatta)
“And Then There Were None”

As boring or slow as it seems, I actually appreciate the individual character developments and screen time that they dedicate to each person. My only complaint would be to know when to stop and how much is enough.

Kokoro Connect – 07

「バラバラと崩れる」 (Barabara to Kuzureru)
“Falling Apart”

Well then… that was quite a depressing episode wasn’t it? Up to date, I felt that this episode was one of the most realistic approaches to the happenings of our little group.

After last week’s halfway point, I wasn’t sure what I was expecting from this episode. But to welcome a new arc, we get a new ED!

Kokoro Connect – 05

「ある告白、そして死は……」 (Aru Kokuhaku, Soshite Shi wa…)
“A Confession, and then a Death…”

Someone once mentioned that this was the best anime of the season and I can definitely back that up with this episode.

Kokoro Connect – 04

「二つの想い」 (Futatsu no Omoi)
“Twin Feelings”

And the only thing that was on my mind at the end was, “Damn… this guy is a total player…” Taichi clearly can’t be that ignorant to believe that none of these girls have a crush on him right?

Kokoro Connect – 03

「ジョバーとローブロー」 (Jobaa to Rooburoo)

Kokoro Connect – 02

「なかなか面白い人間達」 (Nakanaka Omoshiroi Ningen-tachi)
“Some Fascinating Humans”

This week’s episode dives straight to the cause and root of the problem with the soul-swapping. It’s not a surprise that the creepy man in the OP ended up being their teacher.

Kokoro Connect – 01

「気づいた時には始まっていたという話」 (Kizuita Toki ni wa Hajimatteita to Iu Hanashi)
“A Story That Had Already Begun Before Anyone Realized It”

Here I present a new supernatural/comedy/romance series that features a group of students who seem to swap souls at random.
