Kokoro Connect episode 1 discussion

Kokoro Connect is easily one of my favourites so far this season. It works well as a slice of life while naturally adding a supernatural gender bender element. The characters compliment each other well and look similar to K-on designs especially with Aki Toyosaki's role being similar to Yui, but as an Azusa look alike.

Iori Nagase

The characters join the Cultural study group as a club to replace their first choice due to simple problems where their first choice is no longer an option. With this placement, they've become closer by walking to school, exchanging numbers and even entering together.

Aoki, Yui, Iori, Himeko, Taichi

This is how you should act after switching bodies, experiment with the newly acquired assets and learn the joys of being a girl, then freak out about the sudden change. Back at the club room, explaining something so outrageous would be hard to believe, only things they know personally can prove who they really are.

this is how to react after gender bending

The only thing left to do is figure out why they switched bodies. It's unlikely they're close romantically as seen in both body switches. It's possible only one of them likes the other which may lead to a wish of getting closer. It's possible to fall in love like this, but it is just unlikely to change your opinion from rejecting a confession to loving someone. Or it's a curse for members of the cultural club which requires them to look deeper into the mystery and find a solution.

"this is how to react after gender bending"

Wait, is there even any other way to react? :P

Of course, you respect the body and keep your perverted thoughts inside, but of course that's no fun.

I'm thinking that the series will probably focus on the members finding out the reason why and how they switch bodies, other than all the body switching :3

Family issues can be interesting so that should be ok.

Surprised it took them this long to turn "Body Transfer" into an anime.

@Overlord-G
There are several anime with one off arcs, but for it to centre around body swaps, I guess they just needed an interesting story to actually sell.
