Our adorable Kobato meddled in the heated conversation which took place between Sayaka’s ex-husband Okiura and Fujimoto-kun.

This Chapter…

Okiura implied Kobato as interesting but up to what extent is unknown. He even dropped the moment for her sake. But Fujimoto told him never to come back and got warned instead to flee if he doesn’t want to come across him again.

Kobato picked up the still lighted cigarette Okiura had thrown and Fujimoto snatched it away from her, fumbled on it and ended up getting hurt.  Kobato said something about Fujimoto being hurt (not physically, I suppose) and he took it as overreacting.

In her room, Kobato recalled her encounters with Fujimoto and she came into a realization…! She then sang  a sad tune which had reached Ioryogi and the Old Bear’s bird. A song that expresses just how she felt at the moment.  

Random Babblings…

Okay, I’ve been really busy idling and I haven’t taken care of this place for a while… gomen! But I’ll try my best to update the site with new articles hopefully.

Now, while waiting for the scanlated version, do check out StarLady’s translations [ here ] and thanks to Undini for the treat!

Kobato is really so cute! And I like how she had come to realize that something’s totally different with her affections towards Fujimoto! Could it be that she’s in love with him? But how can she cure him?  It’d be a taboo!

Ioryogi went missing and Kobato went home ahead only to find Mr. Okiura along the way.  Now that Fujimoto-san showed up that very instant, what would happen next?

This Chapter…

It was the first time we would be hearing Ioryogi  say “please” when he usually is so mean and bossy!  He handed Usyagi-chan his fire, a message included perhaps.  But when Genko’s bird made fun of him, he had him toasted!

Now, the confrontation began with Okiura and Fujimoto heating things up which lead into a wrestle.

Kobato clung onto the other man to avoid hurting the younger guy.  Words just came blurting out her mouth in defense of Fujimoto and managed to separate them both.

But when the topic drifted back to Sayaka again, Kiyokazu launched another offensive however, Kobato meddled and said that hurting the Okiura guy would mean hurting himself too.

There was something else she’s gonna say, something interesting which caught Fujimoto’s interest but she dissmissed the thing prematurely.

Random Babblings…

Could it be that she has grown to love Fujimoto?  With that special sparkle in her eyes and judging the guy’s reaction could there be some possibilty sometime soon?

Kobato never really ceased to amaze me and she is really cute but the chapter’s so short it ain’t cute! :(

The old bear Genko’s bird messenger came to the Nursery where Ioryogi and Kobato’s at.  At the stuffed being’s request, the feathered messenger spilled out the secrets of the Yomogi Nursery School!  Kobato then after taking a nap with the kids noticed Ioryogi’s gone!

This Chapter…

Mystical being Ioryogi gave Genko’s messenger a hard time carrying him back to the nursery after he’d heard what the old bear has found out.  He was so heavy for a stuffed toy, worsened by the approaching black hawk giving the carrier a fright that pooof … Ioryogi’s fallen from his grasp…er, beak!

Goodness gracious!  It was a good thing cute Usyagi came from nowhere to his rescue! With a sunflower on the other hand, the bunny with wings had delivered Ioryogi a message, something about the flask Kobato has among others!

Speaking of Kobato, she had turned every nook and crannies upside-down in search of  Ioryogi but he’s nowhere to be found!  She headed for home dejectedly instead and was surprised to see Okiura along the way near the school. Was he there for the payback already?  Fujimoto then came!  Would there be a clash?

Random Babblings…

Phew!  This has been my first post since a few days ago.  I have had my hands full with work and some personal things plus my home PC gave up on me! Waah! =_= Well, it’s rather good to get rid of the dual-boot system but at the cost of my bookmarks and I’m still stucked with Vista! Sayonara, my favorite ones!

Anyways, I’m back on track, so welcome back, Me! XD

Yey, another crossover!  Usyagi-chan, one of the CLAMP’s Wish mystical beings.  I haven’t really finished reading the manga yet since I still got a long list  of must-reads and must-watchs.  As far as I know, the thing was kinda some sort of a messenger between the recipients and the gods.  The message it usually brings is embodied in a flower-like form magic that when dissolved, it means the message had been successfully received.

Now back with Kobato, I now realize that somehow, Fujimoto had a special something for Sayaka remembering what he said about that Okiura guy taking her away.  It’s a good thing that he’s starting to loosen up with Kobato around and he has changed perceptively.  Kobato, so cute in here! ^o^

Kobato by CLAMP

Taking a short breather coupled with my unmotivated mood yesterday, I finally got to read the manga, finished it in an hour and hell, I was instantly enamored! My curiosity grew each time I see Chibiyuuto’s upcoming CLAMP schedules widget.  Along with Tsubasa and xxxHOLiC, there’s Kobato!  I resolved that one of these days, I’ll definitely have to take a look at it!  Thank goodness, I wasn’t disappointed!

Who is Kobato?

Kobato is a story of a very cute and sweet girl (Hanato Kobato), her naivete and her mission of collecting wounded hearts for a personal cause.  She is often seen with a supernatural being locked in a puppy-like stuffed animal, the hot-tempered Ioryogi, her guide.

Presently serialized in the Newtype monthly magazine, the 2005 released series have already about 3 volumes that were made available and on-going.

Volume 1. Divided into Exams, obviously the chapters were about Kobato’s evaluation of skills to adapt into the human world where she’d be collecting wounded hearts.  But first, she must earn the “flask,” a specialized bottle to contain the fragments of the hearts  she could gather.

Volume 2. Chapters were about her entrance in a nursery run by Sayaka, her encounter with the kids and the ever suspicious Fujimoto.

Volume 3. Divided into Drops, focuses on Kobato’s continued determination to keep the nursery from closing down due to a huge debt.  Fujimoto’s disdain on her gradually turns into concern which ignited her fire to even heal his aching heart.

Crossovers and Reincarnations

Notable crossovers were Touya from Cardcaptor Sakura; xxxHOLiC, the old fortune teller; Chobits except Chitose Mihara and her twins Chiho and Chise were now reincarnations of Chitose Hibiya and her twins Freya and Elda (Chi) and there’s a lot more.

Is there any indication of romance here?

So far, there’s none except for the hints Fujimoto’s actions towards Kobato reveal but that’s just it.  It’s too soon to tell but I really like the idea. They remind me of grown up CCS Sakura and Shaoran and they look kinda similar and with slight character resemblance too.

But there’s just one rule Kobato has to be aware of, she must not let herself fall for a man who’s heart she is healing!  The thwarting effect of which is yet unknown.

In Anime Soon!

I heard somewhere that there already is a pronouncement from CLAMP that Kobato’s going to be in an anime serial soon!  Awesome! ♥

Now, onto the next drop!
