A Story That Began As We Realized It
(Kizuki o Ataerarete Hajimatta toiu Hanashi) (気づきを与えられて始まったという話)
Heartseed causes more confusion as the club members remember their pasts in Kokoro Connect Episode 11.
Dealing with younger children tends to be tough on many people especially when dealing with teenagers. With Taichi the only one who has a real clue as to whats going on, how will he deal with it?
With the club members turning into their younger selves from 12:00pm – 5:00pm they have to meet up every day in order to not run into trouble at home. For the most part, the four members who are susceptible to the turning are well behaved. I took care of children in day-care and we always had people who were nice and well mannered and kids that makes you want to smack some sense into them.
I’m sure that in our childhood lives we have had experiences and moments where we wish to forget what happened; whether it be someone who bullied you or an embarrassing moment at school. However, what happens to you when those memories become clear once more? Once those memories surface you will not be the same person and your likes and dislikes may be jumbled as a result. I personally think that although previous episodes’ plot mechanisms may change the club members’ personalities, this is the most precarious of them all. Aoki remembers his past and how he fell in love with Nishino Nana clearly and ends up being confused about what it even means to love someone. He lost the feeling but now that he feels it again, confusion creeps upon him and he ends up unable to confirm his love for Yui as well as he had previously.

Love is wild as it is inexplicable. We think that we know why we love someone but we sometimes just do. Usually after a period of time the love craze that you once had with someone fades into a softer form of love. Some lose their love for the other completely while others nurture that love into a longer lasting peaceful one. What does it mean to love someone? Someone could say that it is just chemical reactions in your brain while others say that we may never truly find out. However, one thing I do believe in is like almost everything else, love fades with time. Sure, you can have memorable moments with the one you love and you may fall in love with them once more but what if you didn’t share those special moments anymore? What if you don’t do anything with your loved one? Will you still love them the same? We can only feel what we feel currently and I think it is impossible to feel exactly how we felt before. There are many people out there that can relieve us of our love problems and get us to look above our regrets.
We all know that Nagase is an absolute monster when it comes to personas. She even manages to win Inaba over and leaves Taichi stunned. I’m sure everyone is stressed out about what is going to happen to them now that they are under the influence of their past. How will things turn out? Will Aoki still love Kiriyama after remembering his past? Will Nagase find true self?
