Kokoro Connect: Michi Random

Kokoro Connect

Dereban best Inaban. Seriously.

Well, Michi Random had some pretty serious drama going on, even more so than the standards of this show. I can’t say I don’t feel for Iori though, the burden of expectations when you bring an “image” of yourself to a level it’s way too distant from your own would eventually result in a unsightly “break” like that. It’s probably even worse when the people you care for are the same ones piling the expectations even higher and heavier… I’m glad she managed to make peace with herself though.

The more interesting part would also be the resolution of the love triangle between Taichi, Iori and Inaba. I’ll admit, Inaba really grew on me through the course of Kokoro Connect and I guess I was rooting for her to get Taichi more than Iori. I mean, she can say such majorly embarassing things like…

Kokoro Connect

… oh god that last part totally hit me straight in the nutbladder. I seriously wasn’t kidding when I said Inaba carried this show for me.

So yeah, all in all, I’d say Michi Random really concluded Kokoro Connect quite satisfactory, resolving our main trio very nicely plus also not forgetting to show that Aoki and Yui moving on with themselves after their parts got resolved earlier in the series. Plus, Dereban End is the best end I could hope for!

    Good conclusion to this series, but was disapointed didn’t even get a kiss between her and Taichi

    While watching this I could feel the InbanxTaichi thing coming into fruition, but I also had a feeling that a curveball could be thrown and Iori would end up with Taichi anyways and Inaban would be left with nothing.

    So glad it worked out this way. Iniban was the best part of this series.

    I <3 Inaban.

    I didn’t finish Kokoro Connect but now I’m pretty sure I have to at least watch this to hear Sawashiro Miyuki deliver those lines.

    I will never have a Dereban put her head on my chest and say my name ;_;

    I wonder if Iori puts both Taichi and Dereban to a “nice boat”… Poor Iori, she got NTR’d!

    Thank you Dereban, even though you designated as a damsel-in-distress on Michi Random. And BTW, will SILVER LINK announces for Season 2?

    No I don’t think Nice Boat is suitable for this show after Michi Random since Iori and Taichi realized they both didn’t really love each other in that way.

    And yes, Kokoro Connect is probably well worth it just for Inaban/Miyukichi’s performance.

    No mention of Mikan…I mean Taichi’s little sister?

    First imouto kiss get!

    Forget those semi-incestious anime, the imouto is strong within Taichi’s sister and she outwits all those not-blood-related-so-i’ts-okay-to-love-him or I-love-him-but-won’t-show-my-feelings-but-influenced-by-some-strange-develuke-inventions imoutos :D

    As for the rest of the show: Dereban best Inaban, this fact is unshakeable and will be recorded down the annals of anime.

    Character assassination at its finest.

    But who cares about Iori, anyway?
