I am looking for spoilers from the novel of this series, is there a light novel thread for this series or any website that carries spoilers?

Ah, it's nice too see when they can make "Body switch" plot serious while in other show it'll be just a joke ep.

I own the first vol. of novel, should I just read it or watch anime........hmm

Hmm.. some shows do somehow have a good compatibility with you I guess. I usually hate this kind of shows(high school romance, love triangle, cutesy design), but somehow this show manage to strike a chord with me, whether it's the seiyuu cast, likable cast or the decent animation work, and make me read through the novel.

Read the novel. It's very good for its genre(which I usually don't like)

Hmm, the girls hope that they don't need the toilet when in the boys bodies?

In that case, I hope the exact opposite and hope that they do need the toilet in the boys body! That will be something humorous to watch as they panic, freak out and worry XD

It's ambiguous, although I think Heartseed is most likely. The Japanese is something like: "...when it becomes like 'that was pretty fun,' that's when it will end." The Japanese word omoshiroi has a meaning that covers "interesting," "fun," and "funny." Jp:"... 'sokosoko omoshirokatta naa' to iu kanji ni nareba, sono jiten de owarimasu kara."

The 2nd episode certainly had a more darker feel to it compared to the first, its unexpected but certainly welcomed. Let's see how good they can make it.

What did Iori mean when she said she learned to pee standing up.
Did she mean as a girl or as a boy?

I think she meant that she learnt how to pee whilst standing up as a girl, so peeing as a boy would be no problem for her

Hm. I feel a bit guilty for writing this series off initially.

Mind you, it's nothing spectacular. However, it's much better than my expectations warranted. From the looks of it, the whole body-switching schtick works not only for the sake of introducing hilarious scenarios but also as a device for exposing each character's individual stories. I'm certainly glad at the direction this has taken thus far. Right now, it's a good combination of fun and tense.

On the other hand, the introduction of Heartseed into the picture made me question this show's genre. The abrupt introduction of sci-fi elements felt awkwardly introduced, not to mention completely killing the mood of the scene.

Yea I don't know how I feel about the introduction of the HeartSeed medium into the mix.

Rather it just be an unknown phenomenon, and from what I feel about the direction of the story, once a character's "Conflict" or Coming of Age moment happens and gets resolved, they escape the loop of body switching and it be down to only 4 people being able to switch, and it keep going from there.

My general assumption was that Heartseed's introduction is the most we'll actually get in terms of fantasy/sci fi explanations, and we probably won't see him again until the end of the show. He was just there to provide exposition on why the body switching is happening and nothing more. I personally liked it since it gave the body switching trope and added sombre element of being toyed around with which I haven't seen before. It could easily lead to an extra layer drama since the extreme lack of control they have over their situations is bound to cause more and more stress as they go along especially when they know someone's at fault but can't lash out.

Actually, since it had been about a week since the swaps had started, I thought she meant that she'd already gone ahead and taken care of Taichi's business once or twice, thus learning from practice how to do it without any mishaps. Though if that was the case I expect Taichi would've noticed after her first attempt, since I doubt she'd make it through the entire first time without error, all the way to zipping up afterward.

Yeah, I'm treating the HeartSeed business as lampshading the "Why body-swapping" question: "Because it's entertaining." Why of course.

Here's a characters/seiyuus page to help keep the characters and their seiyuus straght. Pics of characters and their seiyuus, with info about each seiyuu.

This is from a novel, so I suspect the author has worked out an interesting reason for the switches, and has a fuller background for Heartseed. At least I hope so.

As for the word "heartseed," we should not take its English associations too literally. In Japanese, the word used is fuusenkazura 風船葛, or "balloon-vine." It's an annual vine that seems to grow quickly. Pics. Why he chooses that name I really have no idea.

The mood in ep.2 was quite different, much more serious... color me surprised, I was somewhat disappointed with the first episode, but the staff now showed some ambition in their work

I just want to bring up that Iori's "Ruined for marriage" delivery line was AMAZING.
That joke is probably my favorite overused line, and the way she pulled it off was perfect.
Just because taichi grabbed her own body with her own hand when they switched, lol.

I've got to say, this may be my favorite Toyosaki Aki role ever. That feels great, since Medaka may have been my least favorite.

Inaba lecturing Goto in the teacher's room was classic. It takes balls to lie to a teacher and lecture them at the same time.
