I haven’t felt this way about a book in a long while
Kokoro Connect Book Two: Kizu Random (lit. “Random Wounds”) is one of the most enjoyable and emotional books I have read in a while. As the second book in the series, you really owe it to yourself to read the first book prior to this one. This volume focuses on who I feel is one of the best characters in this series so far: Inaba Himeko. It uses the idea that the extra-dimensional (my hypothesis) being named Heartseed is randomly setting the main characters’ inhibitors to not work every so often, leading them to act out what they are thinking or desire in their mind at random. It’s executed very well and the way that it is a really great fit for Inaba’s fears and insecurities as established in Book One really make the experience so very memorable and well thought out on Sadanatsu Anda’s part. What Inaba learns leads to a double hit of some of my favorite chapters I’ve read in a book this half of the decade. The epilogue is my second favorite epilogue in any of story. On top of that, I enjoyed the book from the very first page all the way to the end. If you have read the first book and want to know whether to continue, please keep reading. If this praise interests you, please consider buying this book as well as the first, which is also good but this book is on another level.
