Okay, the lack of a harem is a great right? I mean, there's totally going to be five parings at the end, hopefully. I hope for less misunderstandings (Love triangles and pentagons make me want to punch someone.) and good humor. Also, since this is a romcom, I'm assuming there's 26 episodes, probably about 4 will be serious, or 5, considering the characters.

Not that I have any idea about the actual show.

KyoAni's animation director is leading this so it's no surprise it looks so similar to K-ON

Will definitely watch for sure.

It actually starts this sunday! O_O

I hear this is a K-ON clone cause the characters look like the ones from K-ON. that is correct?

Well, you right. They do look like K-On! But Kokoro Connect is different than K-On!.. And I think I do understand why KyoAni didn't adapt this.. ^^

SILVERLINK, huh? I guess I'll see how Tasogare X Otome first before deciding about how SilverLink scores in my head.

KyoAni type of animation? IMO, it doesn't looks like one. But the character design is clearly Horiguchi Yukiko's style :D
