The group was convinced that willpower and the help of friends could overcome a fit of desire, but we haven't seen that that is actually true. I don't believe it will be.

KokoCo 10 - Falling For the First Time

Thankfully, the drama level wasn't nearly as high as I was expecting it to be. If anything, the overriding theme of the episode seems to be that the power of friendship is stronger than many other forces, including gravity.

Well...that was resolved quicker than I expected it to be.

Can't say it's bad but somehow,..I was expecting more.

Though I guess that's been the staple point behind the drama in this show. That the character's problems aren't actually as bad as they think they are.

But still, even if it's meant to parallel with that message, I'm not really sure what to make of that cat scene...

Oh wow. This episode practically hit every single wrong button for me. I don't hate it as much as Episode 4, but I doubt anything can reach that level. Ignoring my problem with this show's comedy, the confrontation scene reminded me too much of the one in Shana and other shows that have done this kind of love triangle. It went on for over six minutes, it was overdramatic as hell, Taichi was barely involved in the episode despite the girls fighting over him, and that stupid "cat" scene was such an overdramatic buzzkill. Also, this was just a very anticlimactic way to end this arc. Did not enjoy at all.

I did like this episode, but I though the last episode for Hito Random was better delivered. The drama there, while forced, felt a lot less so than this episode.

Both had Inaba kisses though, which is always a positive! Will every arc end with a kiss from Inaba?

OMFG Inaban's character is amazing. I really love her character development. Best character in the anime. My favourite is still Nagase though, Inaban closely coming in second.

Iori is like Heartseed's walkie-talkie, the poor girl.

Well, that was a lot less dramatic than I thought it would be. Not much happened. Most of the episode was Iori basically telling "Sisters over dudes" to Inaba. I hoped she'd be a little more pissed. I really wish there were more consequences from the characters' actions because right now it feels like the author tries too hard to wrap everything up at the end of each arc. Like with body-switching, the gimmick wasn't used to its full potential.

I was never a fan of girls fighting each other for a guy's affection, especially when they completely disregard his choice in the process. Speaking of which, I feel the series is beginning to have too many persistent characters.

Low point of the episode was Inaba hitting Taichi like a bloody tsundere. And then he apologizes.

The trip into nature was kinda nice change of scenery.
Inaba was all weird though.
Looks like she was really reacting to Taichi.
Nagase sure figured out Inaba's feelings pretty quick.
That Hearseed makes me sick with his twisted games.
Well, at least unleashed desires arc will be ending soon..

Yea, I don't buy it either. But if that's the mindset they're using to be able to get out of their room, I guess it works out in the end.

The episode was intense, Iori telling Himeko off was something good to see and Aki Toyosaki was amazing at this scene. Himeko kissing Taichi and getting really embarassed in the ending was just too cute and it was Miyuki Sawashiro's turn to be amazing.

I short, a wonderful episode.

Episode 10.

hm, not sure how I feel in comparison to the conclusion of the last arc. Its a lot more normal, which I kind of like.

I like that Iori is the 'final fixer' of this arc being that she was the attention of the previous conclusing arc. I predict Inaban will be the final fixer for next arc if it follows a pattern.

Surprised to see Yui and Aoki there. I thought the curry trip was just for the one classroom organized by the class rep. alone, not an actual school function.

Iori proves again to be an even sharper person than Inaban. Also, her outburst at the end seemed to not be an 'episode' but her true feelings.

Even though she said she was fine with Inaban fighting her for Taichi, her last expression in the episode proves otherwise, and it seems she was once again using a mask to say what she thinks the other person wants to hear instead of her true desires.

Heartseed proves again to be the ultimate troll. Though he didn't do anything as extreme as with Iori. His trick on Inaban was gold. XFD. Was like "damn these characters need to stay away from high places"

Inaban steals the last scene of the arc again by taking a kiss from Taichi.

Final pairing should be:
Yui x Aoki
Inaban x Taichi

Iori x Class Rep Girl

Everything will be perfect.

Looking forward to the next arc, and seeing how they fit it all in 3 episodes.

Those two earned their paychecks this week with the confrontation. In the hands of lesser talents, it could have been a train wreck, but they carried it off with conviction. Sawashiro has been tremendous from the start, even when her character has been less so.

I'm relieved to see Iori is no fool. In any other school anime, she'd need to see a dozen longing looks, three accidental almost-kisses, and a glimpse of Taichi's school photo tucked secretly in Inaba's day-planner before getting suspicious. However, because she's not an idiot, she's able to take an educated guess at what might be going on, and strikes oil.

It's not all roses this week, but I'm sure there will be pages of people discussing the less... inspiring scenes, to put it kindly, so I'll leave it to them.

This in particular drives me up the wall. Which is funny, because I'm completely fine with a girl physically punishing a guy when he's done something to deserve it (such as Taichi's utterly tactless blabbing about Himeko trying to hump him on the club table: Dumbass deserved a double-underhook piledriver for that) even though it's overused. But when there's no remotely justifiable reason for the assault, it's just infuriating.

As always, when it's good, Kokoro Connect is the best thing going, and when it isn't it's utterly pedestrian. My personal bias towards Himeko, and Nagase's rejection of the idiot ball made this week a pleasure for me to watch.
