Kokoro connect

Monday, 17 September, 2012

Alright! Well here it goes.

This time it’s about an anime that is still airing.

Kokoro connect. One might think that it’s a love drama of some sort, if judging only by the name. But it’s not. Well, I would be lying if I said that there is completely none of this stuff,  but I’ll talk about it in a bit. Just hold your pants for a while.

Ok so the story revolves around five high school kids who form a cultural club. Now, they have no superpowers, no hidden abilities, and yet they manage to draw attention of some godlike being that calls itself Heartseed. A plant… Cardiospermum in latin… Really Japan?

Well in any case, that thing starts to play games with those five, or more like plays pranks on them, to lift its own boredom. Now! Can you imagine what kind of prank such an entity can pull on you? And I didn’t mention it, but that thing has got some really twisted sense of humor.

So the kids face ridiculous situations on the god level, one after another. Basically the dude plays with their minds at his own whim. And in the midst of it… Yep… Boyfriend/girlfriend Crysis!  Shut up gamers!

Really? Love affairs in the midst of this? Now who’s got the twisted mind, you or the Heartseed? Facing something like that I wouldn’t be able to think of getting a girl! I’d be closer to go all-Kratos on the guy! I said shut up gamers!

Well anyways, I find myself watching all eleven episodes in one go, and enjoying this kind of dark humor.

Very solid self sustained arcs, five episodes each, so you can watch them each like a full season, and even have moments like: “I see what you did there!” in the end of one and then “Woohoo! Action! Wait what?!” in the beginning of the next. Very pleasant graphics too.

One word of advice. Watch it closely or the story will begin and end even before you know it.
