Kokoro Connect [Light Novel and Manga]

This novel is pretty interesting. I got the gist of volume 2 and it is going to get more emotional. Can anyone who has read the other volumes give a brief summary?

Yea, three chapters of volume one of the light novel have been translated so far and work has started on chapter four.
It's in the Pending Projects/Teaser Projects section.

Also four chapters of the manga have been scanlated.

OH MY GOD YES! It's finally been created! Now I can run my mouth hinting all about what's going to happen in the next episode without fear of being struck me down with Indignation

Ladies and Gentlemen, please look forward to more of Taichi's White Knighting performances, at the same time keep in mind that there are WORSE things a high school boy can sacrifice for the sake of a girl than just his two nuts...

Volume 4 is more or less close to translated as well already.

From just the illustrations alone I could tell that Volume 2 is going to be even more angst-filled than the first, making me quite hesitant.

Heh, but it didn't stop me from skipping ahead to Volume 4 chapter 2 just from the title alone

Why isn't this under the current series sub forum listings? I asked the mods about making one, but they haven't gotten back to me on that.

The mods will answer you something along the lines of "there are many factors to consider when creating a subforum..."

But essentially, there just isn't alot to talk about this series just yet- We haven't really hit the shipping war, raging inducing parts. And even Triple R can only talk so much about ball bustings

Not many people have read the original source as well, I myself have only seen the first volume though I have some idea about the later half of the story...

I wonder if tomorrow's episode will feature
Spoiler for stuff:

It might even be left on a cliffhanger with how it was done in the manga.

I doubt it,

Spoiler:


But quite frankly, the only thing I'm REALLY looking forward to next episode would be Taichi's 'confession' to Inaba, as Kuroishinigami can attest to my reaction when I first read it in the LN It's arguably more gutsy than a kick to the balls.

I swear I would RAGE if they took it out... Oh God how I would RAGE...

Yep, pretty much my favorite parts of volume one are the interactions and dialogues between Taichi and Himeko, which are dripping with sexual tension.

Sexual tension? Well I guess that's one way of putting it

At least we know that Taichi is a normal healthy teenager.

It was also pleasant to know that Himeko is a healthy teenager as well.

The thing is though, while I'm certain Taichi is too 'pure' to lie about something like that, Inaba is too 'troll' to be completely honest about it

Gah whatever! I don't care anymore- I'll take it as the truth !

Any clues on what happens volume 5 and up. I see new characters from then on. Did they join the club?

I was waiting for Taichi's confession in the recent ep cause when i read it in novel, i was going, did he really say that? atleast we know he always found inaba attractive, even if he wasn't in love with her in the begining.

Word on the street is, Volume 5 is a collection of side stories.

The main story itself ends at volume 7, with the remaining 8 and 9 another collection of 'toothache-inducing' side stories... Not my words.

That seems to be everybody's reaction for the first time as well

It looks like the arc would finish next episode with the bridge scene, but the good thing is Yui x Aoki's (love) confession scene; good, because after that I don't have to bite my knuckles every time people thinks this would end in a harem.
