Kokoro Connect episode 2: Confusing personality swap
I’m not very good at remembering names, now that everyone is switching bodies every two minutes it gets me confused really quickly. I already lost track who was who about 3 times this episode, I guess things won’t get better over time, but at least I’ll have some time to adjust and know them a little more by their name. At least I know their personalities a little by now.
Now we have a new “being” into play. Heartseed is the one responsible for all the trouble those 5 teens are going through. We have no idea who he is, what he wants or any of that stuff, the only thing we know is that he’s a lazy creepy sloth who likes to stalk young girl and boy change bodies and their reaction to it. I’m sure he enjoyed thoroughly to watch them go into the wrong bathroom and have everyone stare at them weirdly. I’m not really sure why he is needed in the story, but I guess we will find that out later on during the season. Unless he was there only to give the kids a reason not to look for reason anymore and only to concentrate on the facts and how to live through it.
The most important and shocking part of the episode was when they questioned how they were supposed to use the toilet if there ever was a body swap and the new body they were in needed to pee. I’m no girl, but I can assure you that I have a pretty good idea how to sit down on a toilet boil and just pee. If the girl get into the guy body, they can do just the same. Yes they will look like pussy and the guy in question might have his man card revoked, but at least they don’t have to touch their junk if they don’t feel like it.
I believe it would be much better if they simply accepted to have massive orgies together, it would solve many problem they have, but at the same time, I just feel it might make the show a little too awesome. Now that I think about it, I’ve already seen the story told that way, but it was a hentai, I don’t need to watch the same thing again.
Iori is such a deep little girl. It has only been a few days but she has already reflected on the meaning of having a body and a soul. She might start to realize that the more time they body swap, the more their different personalities and difference will become the same. They will all merge into one single entities sharing 5 different bodies. This might look like something cool for an anime, but keep in mine that something similar is happening all over the world as we speak. As technology improve every day, our means of communication improves with it and we are able to efficiently communicate with more and more people. There will be one point were we are so open with our lives and everyone else, that there will be no more limit to one personality. There won’t be a barrier separating me from you, we will all become everyone. But I guess I’m getting a little bit ahead of myself right now.
Switching bodies is neat if you can change sex at the same time, boobs are awesome.
