"Kokoro Connect" episode 6 thoughts

So a new week means a new episode of Kokoro Connect for all of us to hopefully enjoy. The whole body switch-o-roe seems to have passed and the main cast seem to have finally returned to normal. What they do not realize is that a whole new situation is about to take control of their lives once again.

At this point of the season there is still no clear cut reason why these things are happening to our cast other than someone/something controls the teacher informs the cast when certain things might happen to them. I'm getting a Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya sorta vibe from this show. What I mean is that I think that the show will be split up into five episode arcs revolving around some sort of phenomenon. This week's episode brings up the new issue they have to deal with; having their true emotions and feels come out no matter what. The beginning of episode 6 shows Himeko making a move on Taichi in the club room. The others barge in and Yui completely destroys a wooden table in the room. Also Yui gets arrested for fighting some boys that were causing trouble for some girls. Confused on the situation, they struggle to find a way to deal with it for the time being. The episode ends with Iori ending a phone conversation with Taichi and stating that she cannot mess things up this time. Thinking this a foreshadowing of something pretty awful (and hopefully exciting) development/downfall of her character's mental stability.

This week's episode seems to still have that amazing energy and excitement in the first couple episodes so I really do hope it keeps it up. I will be looking forward to next week's (or this week; idk when they air) episode.
