Kokoro Connect revolves around the lives of five high school students, who are outcasts, as they don’t fit into any clubs at the school. Taichi, Iori, Inaba, Yoshifumi, and Yui come together to form the “Bunkenbu”, also known as the Student Cultural Research Club. Shortly after the characters are introduced, they begin to face a bizarre phenomenon that causes them to randomly switch bodies throughout the period of each day.
This is a series that takes a supernatural plot, adds some well-written high-school romance and a lot of compelling drama, and wraps it all up in a brilliant package. When body-switching is involved, the initial love triangle between Taichi, Inaba, and Iori becomes more complicated. Although Taichi and Iori later kiss (they were duped into thinking Iori was going to die), their relationship never fully develops due to Iori’s doubts about the sincerity of her feelings, and the two decide to remain close friends. Inaba, on the other hand, refuses to give up on Taichi, and they begin dating at the end of the Michi Random arc. Overall, it’s well worth checking out.
