Hahaha, that's so true! Two of the three leads plus grandpa... unless Keita counts too! Couldn't help laughing at the smack around the head and exchange that followed :D

Also there sure was a lot of walking around this episode...

I thought the plot was cliche. The little boy who couldn't tell that his grandpa is mean only because he cares about him. Oh well, at least the FujimotoxKobato moments were nice.

Thanks, person who gave me this on another site a long time ago, lol.

Is it just me, or did Kobato get a shit load of candy at the end? I remember the it used to not have all that much candy in it. Now it's like a third to the top.

That's because there was a time skip of a couple of months between Episode 12 & 13. You can't expect Kobato to tell the story of how they got each piece of candy. How boring would it become. Lol.

A simple story but still a nice episode. Hope there's plenty more Kobato x Fujimoto.

That. And I think it's pretty obvious already that the anime will go through the 4 seasons, each lasting about 6 episodes. We're at Autumn now. I'm guessing Winter will be around episode 18-19. So we should probably expect another time skip and sudden increase in konpeito.

This is not getting any better fast. If they did the time skip, why can't we skip through lameass pointless episodes like this one?

Damn Ioryogi,as if he is expecting Kobato and fujimoto relation to be...........
Well Ioryogi won't be surprise if they both............
Although it doesn't seems like it....but this episode look like a "Date episode" to me
The Old man remind me of someone.....Fujimoto!!!I guess Kobato will think differently when she face Fujimoto
The love story start now !!!and Ioryogi is expecting it ^^

I feel like we're going nowhere. And at thins point I just hope that we won't get a rushed 2 episodes ending while they mish-mashed the entire series.

kobato filled the bottle in 2 episodes, but she can´t did the same in 12 episodes O.o?


If the bazar chapter is animated then It could have sense, but that chapter wasn´t animated, I undestand the kobato´s time is finishhing in 2 seasons but that bottle doesn´t make sense

Ioryogi is being too obvious in overemphasizing that Fujimoto is being kind to her.

Almost... diabolically planning something.

There've been too many kids around lately. The episodes don't have the impact that I felt from some of the earlier episodes. I was kind of bored while watching. Hope it gets better.

Eh this was a rather boring episode. Kobato x Fujimoto bits were good but that's about it.
I lol'd at the end though and thought "Tsundere Grandpa?"

It's obvious they are skipping around a bit on how she is obtaining each of the candies. I just wish that if they were going to be doing this that they would do it in general instead to do a pointless episode where she gets a candy then go to another episode and she has like 8 more pieces and another pointless episode where she gains another piece of candy? I wish this would follow the manga bit more. Oh well it's still enjoyable series to watch. : )

Boring. There were still some funny moments, but I feel like the show isn't going anywhere.

Also, is it just me or does Kobato all of a sudden have WAY more Konpeito? In one episode she had like six then her jar was like a third full.

This episode wasn't particularly exciting... Hopefully next week will be better.

I must say I was a little shocked when the grandpa smacked the kid over the head like that though, hahah.

And wasn't it at the start of the previous episode that the bottle suddenly became much more full?

Decent episode.
The misunderstood child bit is old.
This ep. was slightly better than the last bunch, imo.

GarLogan78:
I noticed that too. I guess the directors assume that most of the viewers won't be keeping track of every konpeito..
While the fans aren't looking. might as well dump a ton of konpeito in before the steadily approaching ending.

I think the only parts I really liked in this episode were the ones with Kobato x Fujimoto moments. Interesting that Ioryogi was being the one to point out that Fujimoto's not so bad.

Otherwise I kind of found the episode lacking in something... Maybe it was emotional impact that it was lacking. And where did Kobato get the bottle so full so quickly? Guess we're to assume she did some off-screen healing-of-peoples'-hearts?

Whoa now now that was a lovely episode. Kids should know why their parents get angry at them. It's just because they care for them! Just like our grandpa back there in the train station. That really touched my heart. :( The smack was good though. That grandpa can give a good punch I'm telling you.

Okay so I see what this episode is about. If kids don't get good guidance when they're still young, they will become a bad person in the future so it's good to guide them to the right path when they're still young, just like what Kobato and Fujimoto did to Keita.

Damn son Kobato got a lot of Konpeitos now. It's only a matter of time before she fills the bottle up to its fullest! As for Fujimoto, damn I'm starting to like this guy. He's so kind but too shy to admit it. :3

They're tsundere too. They may say it sucks but inside they like it . Otherwise they'd have dropped it long time ago. Hahaha.

Glad to see that I'm not the only one not hating on this show. I think every episode is sweet and fits into the story, it doesn't matter that sudden increases of kompeito show up, just the overall relaxing, sweet feel of this anime.

the plot of this can be a tad slow and predictable, but i must admit its a guilty pleasure, the stories are so cute and the animation is beautiful I can't help but keep watching..

I did however notice the large increase in candy pieces! But like people have said it would become dead boring if there was a story for each piece!

Now is this touching or boring? -_-

I can't wait until its over, I feel like I've watched too much to drop it at this point... though the temptation is strong after this episode and the tree episode.

It's really pretty, the art and animation are great, but everything else is so cliche and overdone that I'd trade all the pretty for a drop of original plot development.

My thoughts exactly.

This anime has great animation and likeable characters, but the lack of plot development and continually boring episodes are really testing my patience. I love laid-back and relaxing shows, but there's a limit to how much I can take. I would've totally dropped this anime if I realized this a few episodes ago, but now that I'm past the half way mark, I might as well finish this.

Did you not notice that all the other extra candy have no colour and the ones we know about are in colour? But I do kind of agree

I laughed my ass off when the grandpa hit Eita on his head, that was just too funny.
Otherwise is was pretty good, nothing special though. I guess I'll watch some other stuff now, Kobato is usually more enjoyable when I haven't watched it for a day or two.
I almost never read discussions after I made my post, if you want to reply PM me or post on my profile page.

4/5

The episode is a bit subdued, is useful to the plot, but I was not involved this time.
Nice narration, the two gradually approaching, but you could make it more engaging.
Drawings and animations always mediocre, this is the real evil in this series.
I hope that the series will focus on the main story, without digressing too much, the clock is ticking.
