The TV broadcast ended with episode 13. But... Episodes 14-17 will be released on DVD/BD on March 27 2013 and April 24 2013 and it looks like there will be a theatrical release as well, no details yet that I can see.

They are promoting the first DVD/BD release with Mise Random / Random Store events, signed cards and whatnot. The seiyuu today:

Ep 13 was the TV final.
Ep 14-17 will be released on dvd and bluray, and maybe streamed on the official site for the anime(you'll have to live in Japan to be able to watch those vids).
Those dvds and blurays won't be released next week, so you'll have to wait probably some months before you can continue on it.
Crunchyroll doesn't stream anime that only is released on dvd/bluray.

Hey, there is not only michi random, but "clip time", "nise random", "yume random" novel chapters, that they may to make in future. Even more.

The light novels are not done yet! Asu Random / Random Tomorrows part one just came out, hopefully arrives at my house tomorrow!

So far the anime has covered the first three light novels. Michi Random will be part four. There will be at least ten light novels. Who knows if the anime will go for more seasons? I asked the twitter account but no reply...

Ugh, so I gotta wait six months for another four episodes? Possibly longer since I'll have to wait for fan subs. Seems like a long wait for only a little anime, not a fan of this. Hopefully it'll at least get another season, since I'm absolutely in love with this show.

EDIT - I don't suppose there's anywhere I could buy the light novels in English, eh? I could probably find them online, but I much prefer real paper.

This "last" episode did not feel like an ending, .. and that might be the intention of the producers.
So we have to wait for the OVA or maybe a second season. There are some more, disturbing, social issues which could be addressed

They are going to adress "What does is mean to truly love someone".. okay, that's for sure from the last scene of episode 13.
More social issues would be a questions like "How would you feel if you get to know you where adopted?" Many people see this as loosing their identity without "getting" a new one. Or like the emotions where unleshed, how about fears that are unleashed? People are full of different fears, not only androphobia.

There are books full of strange psychological phenomena. Or what could happen if you really could hear what other people are thinking?
Might be complex stuff and maybe its really not fit for entertainment, but plotwise there is plenty of stuff.

I would also like to know where I could find the light novels in English (either online or in paper)? I've searched online but I personally haven't found anything...

Baka tsuki only has some or all of book one, Hito Random, translated but that's all I saw. I am reading the Japanese which I always do anyways, I hate relying on someone else's interpretation. There are subtleties which are quickly and easily lost in translation.

If I was sure I wouldn't be sued I would consider writing down my translations as I am dying to discuss it with someone...

More fallout from the drama that unfolded last month. It looks like the DVD/BDs will have a different theme song.

And is likely the reason for the delay in releasing them and the game too. And makes the second season unlikely according to some :(

In happier news about Kokoro Connect I should have another light novel today, Random Tomorrows which is sadly apropos for this anime...

And that's why I'm going to order all the books; I think there are 9 out right now.

It's possible the moral outrage may die down enough where a second season becomes possible, but I'm not going to count on it. Plus, I hate the feeling that the author is being unfairly punished in this case.

Now if the yen would only drop a little more in value...

Yes, ninth one just came out, waiting at home. Yen has hurt me this month but stuff is getting scarce so I went for it.

Good luck getting Step Time #8, it is sold out at amazon.co.jp. If you find another good source before a reprint is available, let me know please! I hate having a hole in my collection :(. I just hope the reprint isn't limited to a boxed set as I already have the other eight...
