THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
It begins with more of Kobato.'s memory when someone who looks like Fujimoto playing the song Kobato sings in piano. Kobato looked a bit younger with a doll. Kobato is sleeping.
Kobato wakes up and Ioryogi asked why is she smiling happily while sleeping. Kobato didn't realize so. She was explaining about her dream (probably her memory), but she couldn't remember anymore. Ioryogi said it's probably a dream that she wanted to go (related to her wish).
Then she saw Fujimoto going out. She remembered about when he was sad when Sayaka ran to Okiura the other day.
Kindergarten has the notice of closing down and it's quiet. Sayaka is cleaning up stuff. Kobato came, at first kind of sad expression, then greeted Sayaka happily. She offered to help out with cleaning up.
Fujimoto is done with his pizza job. (lol @ Piffle Pizza... Piffle from Tsubasa, even the logo is like Piffle from Tsubasa)
Kobato is replying to Sayaka that she's fine (not that hard with the cleaning up). Sayaka said to make things new, she has to throw old things away. When they got the already-done futons to outside, Sayaka said it's sad that Fujimoto cannot be there.
Fujimoto is doing the jobs and the one of the owners said he doesn't have to do so many jobs anymore (since kindergarten closed down).
Sayaka said sorry/feel sad about closing down to Kobato but she's not regretting about the decision. She decided herself, and not because of Okiura.
At night, Kobato visited Fujimoto and tried to convince him to go help out with the cleaning up, but Fujimoto rejected coldly. He said it's ok to throw everything out, and that he's too busy to go.
Fujimoto was going to one of his jobs next day, but he called the place that he would be 1 hour late and went to kindergarten. He went to see the piano with no sound.
He went out and Kobato saw it. She also saw that he kept the piano cover on.
Outside, Fujimoto is thinking about the memory of him playing piano and feeling blushed when looking at Sayaka to the extend that he almost hit by the truck.
His job was that pizza store again. And the co-worker... is he Touya?
At night, Kobato is thinking deeply about the konbeito. Ioryogi felt annoyed and asked what she is thinking and what she wants to do. Kobato said she doesn't know but her heart hurts. What Ioryogi asked surprised her: Fujimoto.
The day for kindergarten's building to crash (I don't know how to explain this) comes and Fujimoto still went for his jobs. Chitose saw him in the morning while cleaning outside. She is thinking he should take break for today.
Ioryogi said he's going out for today and will be back tonight. He said don't make that sad expression! to Kobato and told her to go quickly.
Okiura's guy, who was saved by Kobato in earlier ep, is here. When he heard Fujimoto is at work, he said Fujimoto's cold. Kobato said he's not! HE'S JUST BUSY!!! He said sorry. He said he will be taking care of the business and Okiura won't be coming. Sayaka said she knows. He said Okiura's doing fine.
Kids from kindergarten came to visit Sayaka and Kobato, and mainly the building.
It's time and he confirmed to Sayaka if it's ok to break the building now.
The hand kind of slows down and Kobato's sad, while Fujimoto is delivering. The building is finally gone...
Ioryogi wants to "kidnap" Ushagi and to talk things out to the God. The bear guy refused. Ginsei, too, thinks that it's too heavy of a job to do. The bear guy is angry at Ioryogi wanting to do without thinking the result like last time and that he never learn from them when he said it doesn't matter about the circumstances. He also mentioned about who's hurting by his decision. Ioryogi said sorry and agreed about waiting Ushagi instead of act things out.
There's a scene with pinkish hair girl in space. She looks like Kobato without the hat and all nude. Then there's a shadow of man (with Ioryogi's voice) talking to her.
The building is completely gone and the guy told them that after cleaning everything, no one should get near here.
Sayaka is asking Kobato to be Fujimoto's power. Sayaka said that this kindergarten hold him to be hard-worker, so she wants him to continue being hard-working Fujimoto. She also said that she relied on him too long and should notice him sooner.
Fujimoto is driving (done with delivering?) and thinking about Sayaka and the kids relying on him. AND there's accident!
Sayaka continued without knowing what happened to Fujimoto. She wants to tell him to do whatever he wants to do. Kobato said it should be Sayaka's respnsibility, but she said it's not anymore.
When Kobato is walking alone at night (wow, so dangerous, if someone's following her... jk), the twins ran to her and told her Fujimoto is in the hospital.
Fortunately, he just got his arm injured (there's no danger to his life). Fujimoto came out and Doumoto and Kobato are here. He said he didn't tell anyone (like Fujimoto told him to), but Chitose. He said sorry to her and Fujimoto went away while Kobato follows him from behind. She's trying to talk to him for few times. When she said she will try to help him when he needs help, he stopped. Fujimoto said, like he told her when he first met her, that don't pity people. Don't feel pity about him because he's annoyed (even though Kobato said she's not). Fujimoto waked away, leaving very sad and despaired Kobato.
Ushagi appeared to give a flower to Kobato. Ushagi's saying something and Ioryogi appeared nearby to explain to say about the time limit. He ran to Ushagi and asked if there's anyway to extend the time limit.
Ginsei and others are worried as well. One of them also said that that girl won't ... if there's no war.
Ioryogi is trying to ask for extension, but no...
next ep... Kobato taking her hat off!! And next week will be airing two eps.!

Sherr said:I kinda shock also when the Building collapse. Really its out of my estimation.but i wonder what happen if the destruction doesn't satisfied his father??
The kindergarten getting taken down feels like a cop out.
The show put so much time into "defending it" so it could allow the destruction to happen.
I feel betrayed.
And there's even more plot holes!

Felt kinda' sad when the nursery was knocked down, a'well. Too bad.
This episode had some really beautiful moments along side the sad, I liked the little flashback between Kobato and Ioryogi.
I don't want this series to end, only two weeks and then it's all done with. Wah!
I hope the ending is a good one.
SHE REMOVES THE HAT NEXT WEEK!!!

I'll admit, there was a small tug at my heart strings as the nursery came down.
I'm trying to use my knowledge of the Wish and Holic universe to come up with some answer to the mysteries surrounding Kobato, but it's really all just random guessing at this point. We'll just have to wait and see.
Still feel nothing for Kobato-Fujimoto.

Doumoto + Ioryogi = Best characters in the Kobato universe. Ioryogi going on his knees was pretty astounding. I respect these 2 characters way more than our protagonists.
Fujimoto? Meh, too much angst.
Kobato? Well, all she's got is a mystery under the hat. ;)

Well when it showed Kobato in that mystical light thingy meeting Ioroygi, it showed her without anything on her head, and NOTHING was there. Maybe she just likes hats because they're warm and fuzzy?
