    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

    SENTAI FILMWORKS LICENSES
    “KOKORO CONNECT”

    HOUSTON, July 2, 2012 — 3 girls + 2 boys = a 5-way body swap in Sentai Filmworks’ latest acquisition: Kokoro Connect! Directed by Shin Oonuma (Dusk maiden of Amnesia, ef ~ a tale of memories.) and Shinya Kwamo (.hack//GIFT) with series composition by Fumihiko Shimo (Air, CLANNAD), character designs by Toshifumi Akai (Sound of the Sky) and sound direction by Toshiki Kameyama (Hidamari Sketch, Dusk maiden of Amnesia).

    The five members of the Cultural Study group that meets in class 401 have spent a lot of time wondering what it would be like to be in someone else’s shoes. But they’re about to learn that there’s a huge difference between thinking about something and literally BEING in someone else’s shoes! Because that’s exactly what happens when, suddenly and inexplicably, they each find themselves inside the body of the girl (or boy) next door! What happens next? Well, besides bringing a whole new meaning to the term “Exchange Student” and the expected freaked out runs to the bathroom, it’s not hard to do the math: Take one wrestling geek, the resident cool girl, the class clown, the popular chick and one sultry maid of mystery, scramble thoroughly and divide, and you can bet that pretty soon they’ll be answering ALL of the questions they never wanted to know about the opposite sex in ways they never anticipated! Get ready for the wildest game of musical bodies ever as Taichi, Himeko, Yoshifumi, Yui and Iori have to survive seeing the world through each others’ eyes in: KOKORO CONNECT!

    Kokoro Connect will be available through digital outlets with a home video release to follow next year.

        Sentai has turned into the Hulk of licensing.

        Who's the "sultry maid of mystery?"

          Another show I'm really looking forward to, it's also a possibility for import, so if I import it, I won't probably double dip.

            If I like it enough, I will buy it. Feels like déjà vu sometimes.

              Yet another series that I will watch via CR first before deciding. It is a series that I'm a bit curious about though.

                This one feels like a good fit for them, so with as much else as they're licensing this season, and during this weekend in general, I'm not surprised to see this one added. I've been looking forward to it, so I'm happy to see it. Hopefully they decide it's worth dubbing and releasing on Bu-ray. I'll definitely get it if so.

                  Must resist urge to claim they misspelled "Library". Darn it! In any case, I'm glad Sentai had the heart to connect us to this series. I saw the preview which was the first half of the episode and it has my interest.

                    I would totally buy Kokoro Library.

                    Anyway, this is another of the 3 summer shows I plan on watching. Hopefully I'll like it enough to get the DVDs when released.

                      I'm glad you did it, because I was about to cave.

                        My heart leapt reading "Kokoro" and dived reading "Connect".

                            And I assume with the Michi Random arc, too. If so, then sold!

                              Yes, I'm glad the streams did well enough for Sentai to release a Blu-ray! :D
