Kokoro Connect Kizu Random (ココロコネクトキズランダム) is a Japanese light novel written by Sadanatsu Anda, with illustrations by Shiromizakana. Kizu Random was released on May 29, 2010. This volume was adapted into Anime Episodes 6 to 10.
The five members of the Student Cultural Society are finally free from the body-swap! At last, everything is back to normal... or so they thought. Now "Heartseed" is back, and it's got a new trick up its sleeve. This time, their bodies are moving on autopilot, acting on the innermost desires of their hearts. For some, this is harmless - but for others, it could mean the end of their friendships, their club, or even their entire high school careers. They know they can trust each other... but can they trust themselves?

- "Kizu" (傷) translates to "Wound" or "Scar."
- "Kizu" (瑕) can also mean "Flaw" in Chinese.
- The last two sentences in the epilogue were used in the promotional commercial for the anime adapatation of Kokoro Connect. "For example, I understood something recently. Humans are not creatures who just suspect, hate, dislike, keep distances, hide, escape, abominate, and reject. Humans live to love and be loved." Each member of the StuCS says part of this excerpt, however this was ultimately omitted from the final version of the anime.
