Doubtful. Heartseed kicked the crap out of her when she tried to kick/punch him. If they had encountered earlier, heartseed would have just kicked her ass into submission.

Of course, one could argue that Heartseed developed such skills after that encounter, but It's a far chance.

Does anyone happen to know when and where the ending single will come out? CDJapan doesn't really give me any info.

Seems my original post about the ending song got buried under all this dirty talk, so I'll just repost it here...

It is, however, available on the iTunes Store, though only if you have a Japanese iTunes account (I think):
http://itunes.apple.com/jp/album/kok...546217440?l=en

Having a listen to it, I really like the full version (perhaps aside from the gaps of silence), definitely contrasts with the faster songs from the R21 album a years back...
Is it safe to assume that each arc will have its own ED song?

Nono, Heartseed wanted to try out one of those "human reproductive things" but he didn't know what rape was. When he realized the girl would be completely traumatized he gave up.

Thanks, I was a tad afraid to read through more than a page.

I'm probably gonna wait for the other edition, just since iTunes usually sells songs in 192 VBR or AAC, and that'll drive my OCD mad.

iTunes sells 256kbps VBR AACs... at least even the ones in the Japanese store are now DRM-free (unlike before, which was 128kbps DRM'd AAC, ugh. I still find AAC to be more efficient than MP3). Can't say I'm pleased at this business model though (I wouldn't mind so much if they were soundtracks)...
I wonder if it's just Team Nekokan though, or was it a decision by King Records (who is publishing the CDs for this anime series)? The Azazel-san OP song for the third OVA is also apparently exclusive to a digital format (also done by Team Nekokan and published by King Records).

Really? I purchased an old track from the 70s about a year ago, and it was 192 AAC- drove me crazy. xD

It's gonna be sad to miss out on the song for a while though. It's definitely really nice.

Huh, I wonder. If Aoki could feel Yui's fear while in her body, then maybe getting out of it would help (help Aoki score, that is). But nah, it's probably Taichi x Inaba. I don't think the game makers would let another guy touch the body of the main character's girl.
True, but I still support Aoki fighting the visual novel/harem cliche. FIGHT THE MACHINE, AOKI!!!!

Honestly, I agree, but will that stop the fanfiction and doujin authors? I think not.

Actually I'm sure Aoki like Yui, but I'm not sure whether he'd turn down a chance to be a hare, protagonist, even if only for 15 minutes.

"I'm not Inaba ... it's me, Aoki!!!"

It's better that I go back to work

We're talking about a guy who confessed multiple times to the same girl. He's clearly completely taken up with her, and there's little doubt that a guy like that would consider it wrong for him to be with another girl while his heart is totally dedicated to Yui.

Besides, Aoki's total dedication to Yui is the only distinctive character element he has. So I'd rather him not lose that, lol.

At least not yet. Maybe Kokoro Connect will flesh him out more later, and maybe he'll even have to get over Yui eventually, but right now The Guy With One Defining Trait really can't afford to lose that one defining trait, lol.

I'll eat my hat if Aoki gets actual character development. Making him snatch one harem chick for himself is already pushing it. He'll stay at the level of a Disney sidekick until the end.

I suppose your right, but I would like to see a few harem tropes undone. Keeps things interesting.

Also, What about Yui in Inaban's body. Would Aoki tap that?!

Or how about Aoki in Yui's body x Yui in Aoki's body?

Hey, we've covered Inaban in Taichi's body x Taichi in Inaba's body!

Heartseed probably wasn't responsible for Yui's trauma, but you bring up a point that he is not completely without a concept of morality like Kyubey, for instance, he said he would not do something like what he did on episode 6 again.

The double standard kind of bothers me, apparently there is a tvtrope of it Double Standard Rape Female On Male or is it Double Standard Rape Male On Male

Pretty much this, Aoki is only there to prevent this from turning into a four man group and four man group is a big nono in East Asian countries (as four sounds a lot like dead) So Aoki already fulfilled his role.

IIRC Japan doesn't really care about the unlucky number 4 and the lucky number 8. That's more of a "Chinese" (and Chinese influenced countries) notion. Heck, I'm pretty sure Japan is only of the few Asian countries that don't celebrate Lunar (Chinese) New Year.

Japan cares enough about the unlucky number 4 that they don't say the proper word for 4 in casual conversation and many of their buildings especially hospitals and hotels don't have a numbered 4th floor. They just skip the floor numbering from 3 to 5. (Similar to Western buildings not having a 13th floor.)

Yes, the number "four" and the character for "death" are both pronounce "shi" in Japanese, making "four" a very unlucky number.
Same goes for Chinese, where "four" and "death" are both pronounced "si". Don't know about Korean, but I guess it's the same there.

So why not up the count one more and have a six person group, three girls and three boys, which would have better swapping potential? That's probably because five person sentai groups are very popular.
Still, as a German saying goes, Aoki pretty much is the "fifth wheel on the car".

Wrong, also in Japan "four" is a very unlucky number, as I know from my Japanese teacher at uni. For example, presenting four pieces of whatsoever to someone would be considered an extreme faux pas and would get you on very bad terms with the recipient.

While Chinese New Year isn't celebrated everywhere in Japan, cities with a good share of chinese population do celebrate it.
