Kobato. isn't going to appeal everyone with its store full of effortlessly sugary sweetness, and in the end, it might feel a little hollow, but it does, at the very least, do a narratively competent and entertaining job telling a delightful story of magic and romance. Madhouse's visual prowess is on full display once again, and the result is a beautiful, carefully detailed and altogether pleasant wisp of an anime that does absolutely everything – from the characters' personalities to the story construction to the emotional stakes that hold the whole thing together – in miniature. It's a fitting and reasonable welcome to the warm and familiar pleasure of Kobato.'s world and one of the finest and most entertaining anime series in recent memory.
So much emotions! I cried in the last few episodes of this... So beautiful and I think that somehow this was slightly better than the manga. Probably because in the anime I can hear Kobato singing and they are all moving and I can hear their voices. I would have wanted some of the scenes in the anime from the manga, but I can live without that. =)KazablanKa rated 9.25:
Another CLAMP i watch,and yet;The best!
i'm in most,not into the nice goofy girly girls, especially in Anime,i actually hate them and find 'em as the anime's weak point...but for some reason,i liked "Kobato",i mean i don't know,maybe cuz she was so goofy and cute to be hated!?
but i liked her so much,in fact i liked almost all characters (what to do with CLAMP..)
for the story,i surly loved it,it was so fun;i don't know if the ending was rushed but i somehow feel so,but i still like it.
So yeah,this anime sure hast it,it is Funny and really enjoying to be watched,the art is Cool,the OP & END with the voice actors are well chosen...
All in All;i LOVED it and hope that everyone would :)
Ioryiogi san...u r so mean! Hold on your fire plez...dont like blow it to Kobato. Hahah...poor Kobato. I thought they will never seen & meet anymore but i was so happy when at the end they meet again. Ow...i also love when kobato singing with her lovely voice. When she singing for the tree...so sad. :-( She's so kind !SolemnSerpent rated 8.00:
This series, like some other ones has a klutzy females protagonist with a heart of gold, as the lead - but in this anime, it's done correctly. Something that I enjoy quite a bit. I facepalm at Kobato's antics, and lack of understanding, but I still can't help but adore her. I'm still watching this series, but overall, it's handling characterizations very well, the animation is beautiful, and the music is gorgeous. I can't wait to see how the series unfolds.HurtHattori rated 9.50:
I admit it : I hated this series at first. I watched the first episode after a very hard day, in hope to change my mind; instead of the solace I hoped, I found Kobato annoyingly whiny and Ioryogi irritating. I kept on accumulating the following episodes and during some holiday, I gave her another chance. And then, Kobato captured my heart in her bottle and she kept it with her in the second episode : there is this kid who hears a lot of bad things about his mother raising him alone, and after he defends her, Kobato tells him that he has a wonderful mom. I was hooked, and Kobato soon become my weekly feel-good series.
