Advance screenings of newly airing anime Kokoro Connect have revealed it to be practically a carbon copy of K-ON! (not wholly surprising as they share a character designer), though with the possibly welcome addition of much boob groping – although online the reaction has been distinctly mixed nonetheless…

    TEN OUT OF TEN anime for me. that scene where nagase was flipping up her skirt for the guy with yui's voice was one of the sexiest things i've seen. that, and where she was groping her own boobs after the guy teleported into her...

    toyosaki, sawashiro, and kanemoto also ensure this anime won't disappoint.

    You are talking about Character design for anime - but originals designs for novel were done by the Yukiko Horiguchi, the one who changed ugly characters of K-On! manga into moe characters of K-On! anime.

    Nah, I think these characters are by Toshifumi Akai, the same person who did Sora no Woto, another anime blamed for copying K-On's character design. I wouldn't be so upset about the similarities if they didn't obviously steal those trademark KyoAni eyes...

    The original designer for the LN is Yukiko Horiguchi as Shiromizakana. KyoAni's character designer for K-ON is Yukiko Horiguchi. Please do some fucking research.

    That's exactly not a direct share though...
    Even if Horiguchi did the Light Novel character design, the anime adaptions are usually slightly different. Take the example of Kakifly -> Yukiko Horiguchi and note the differences, albeit subtle. Horiguchi has little to do with the character design of the anime series, however.

    This is a gender-swap anime, how can it be anything like K-on ?

    Also, if same chara-designer = rip-off, then should I assume that ToLoveRu is a "carbon copy" of Black Cat ?

    your probably referring to the mangas of ToLoveRu and Black Cat, in which I'd probably use Mayoi Neko Overrun as a better example, but in the end its just a matter of the same mangaka doing multiple works with his signature art style~

    there's a reason that K-ON! has elevated to, in Japanese, "phenomenon" status in Japan.

    as popular as moe slice of life shows are getting, it's still mostly exclusive to type b otaku, who sustain the shows with their tons of money. but not so with K-ON!

    arguing on an anonymous forum is such a guarantee for a vicious cycle. if you stop arguing, then the other person will take it as you admitting you're wrong. but if you keep arguing, all you're doing is confirming you're bitter enough to keep arguing with an anonymous person on the internet...
