I have an issue with this trope:
  • Voices Are Mental: Subverted- while this appears to be the case with Kokoro and Satoru, it seems that it's just for the convenience of the reader, as Satoru leaves voice recordings to Kokoro on her recorder, and the voice is still Kokoro's (though with a deeper pitch).
Reading the trope description, it sounds more like playing it straight to me. However, there is the additional plot-important point that neither of them ever seems to notice their own voice not being their own; instead they have to scrutinize their bodies and even look at their reflections to realize what's happened. And yet Kokoro seems to notice the incongruity when she listens to Satoru's recordings, which are in her voice but in a different tone and with different speech patterns. I'm not sure what to make of that trope-wise. Anyone?

Basically, the actual voices still match the body (thus the subversion); it's just the narration that matches the "mind".
