Average Rating

When five students at Yamaboshi Academy realize that there are no clubs where they fit in, they band together to form the Student Cultural Society, or "StuCS" for short. The club consists of: Taichi Yaegashi, a hardcore wrestling fan; Iori Nagase, an indecisive optimist; Himeko Inaba, a calm computer genius; Yui Kiriyama, a petite karate practitioner; and Yoshifumi Aoki, the class clown. One day, Aoki and Yui experience a strange incident when, without warning, they switch bodies for a short period of time. As this supernatural phenomenon continues to occur randomly amongst the five friends, they begin to realize that it is not just fun and games. Now forced to become closer than ever, they soon discover each other's hidden secrets and emotional scars, which could end up tearing the StuCS and their friendship apart.

A show where best girl actually wins.


One of the best romcom anime you can watch! However be warned that you need to see the OVA to get the conclusion to the series proper.


A series of interesting experiments in human psychology and a story of friendship wrapped into one. Pretty good if you ask me.


An excellent drama with well-written characters, a sci-fi aspect and plenty of laughs. Avoids being melodramatic, too. Highly recommend.


This show basically sold me on slice of life anime. Plenty of feels and interesting character interactions.


For a 13 episode Anime, it has a great amount of depth and realism. Very well done, and head and shoulders above some other similar titles.


Despite its intriguing concept, Kokoro Connect is too reliant on farcical character dynamics and cringy drama to be taken seriously.
