If you liked the animation and motifs found in "Card Captor Sakura," you're sure to fall in love all over again with CLAMP's animation "Kobato." The animation style keeps that unique CLAMP feel to it, brought to life with a great voice cast and a storyline that will have you laughing one moment and then reaching for a Kleenex the next. This anime is a great watch for anyone who is looking for a little bit of angelic magic. :3
Both are cute series by CLAMP. Kobato and Sakura have somewhat similar personalities (Determined, a little clutzy, etc) Both anime also have cute animal companions of the main character (Ioryogi and Kero) and a little romance.
If you enjoyed the sweet, romantic aspect of Cardcaptor Sakura, you should plan to watch Kobato.
The two both have the concept of a innocent, naive girl and a comical sidekick that's a doll. They also contain a "that's just so sweet" love that grows between two seemingly unlikely people. Both male protagonists (Syaoran and Fujimoto) go through a change of starting off cold and warming up towards the heroine (Sakura and Kobato).
Not to mention the fact that the two originated from mangas of the same mangaka group: CLAMP.
You will love kobato if you love sakura card captor. because of 3 reasons:
1# Clamp did it
2# the plot it's great! you have comedy, romance, and more!
3# you will love the characters!
I totally recommend it!
Similar artstyle (due to being from CLAMP) and design. Beyond that, both involve a world of make-believe (with involvement of supernatural beings with magical powers) within a realistic world. Kobato shares some similarities with Sakura, not only in terms of looks (Kobato looks like an older verson of Sakura with a different hairstyle), but part of her character such as cheerfulness. They are very loosely related at best due to these superficial similarities, but it is likely that both are enjoyable in their own ways.
Both are by CLAMP so the art and feel is very similar. They both involve the female lead having to collect something. In cardcaptor, sakura has to collect clow cards, where in Kobato, kobato has to collect konpeito.
Kobato and Chobits have many things in commen. Kobato feels like a sequal to Chobits because of its cross overs, just like all the other Clamp titles. They both have a main female character who is "new" to the human world. They both contain heart warming stories. Comedy, drama and a ltitle bit of romance. Kobato and Chobits are great, and are also made by the same author - Clamp!
There are many of the Chobits characters in Kobato.
The resedent he stays at is the same, including the owner and her daughters, wich are the chobit twins.
The place where Chi works at is the same in Kobato, the bakery Tirol. Its very amusing and gives it a extra flavor when you notice.
Other than that, there are little simularities story wise. Id say for the overall enjoyment Kobato owns chobits in every aspect.
This animes have some same producers!
If u watched Chobits u'll probably want to watch Kobato!
Some things form Chobits are the same in Kobato.
They have some sad and happy scenes.
They are very touching too.
Both of the main characters are extremely optimistic people.
Both series contain some romance.
Both series are somewhat funny slice-of-life anime with drama sprinkled around.
Both have some fantasy elements with them.
Similar naive and happy-go-lucky heroines that are Goody two shoes and only think in other´s well being.
Slice of life moments of the heroines daily lives helping/healing people around them.
Drama and Romance involving main characters and supporting characters too.
Both also have supernatural elements: cursed people who transform into animals and for a similar reason: one of them (the dog in kobato, the cat in Furuba) angered God and for that all of them were punished.
kobato is similar to tohru but a bit more stubborn
the feeling is similar
has some level of tragedy in both animes
all of them are lovable characters
the romance is cute
both female protagonists HEALS a persons heart (scars?) in a way
The main characters in both the anime are very similar in that they appear to be slightly dumb, but really, they are very sweet and have the most incredibly positive spirit. On top of that, the overall heart-warming feeling you get from watching Fruits Basket is the same feeling you get from watching Kobato.
Kobato and Fruits Basket both have lovable, overly-polite female protagonists that have a strong desire to help those around them. These protagonists really make these animes some of the best of the shoujo genre.
Airheads enjoying little wonders of life at the same time changing moods of everyone they have met.Cute characters that are hard to not love.Also you can hear from time to time "ara ara" in the background.
A sad story both made from clamp. Kobato features characters from tsubasa such as mokona, fai, and kurogane. The story line is similar, they both want to collect something imporant to them ; feather and kopeito.
Both are by CLAMP so the art and feel is very similar. They both involve the leads having to collect something in order to achieve a purpose. In kobato, kobato must collect konpeito, and in tsubasa, syaoran must collect feathers containing sakura's memories.
The simularities between the two story lines are in some ways frigtening. While they are different, there is that sameness about them, that makes one think. Both are ironically done by clamp, both have magical girls, and they collect stuff in a jar, trying to be able to achieve that special thing. They have stuffed animals around their sides, and Koboto's main two characters have simularities in looks those from Nanatsuiro Drops, except in Koboto, they have longer hair.
- Both endings are very touching and will leave you in tears.
- Both main girls are optimistic, cute, and kindhearted.
- Both have romance and some fantasy.
I definitely recommend this anime if you loved Kobato.
The feeling of the two stories seemed one and the same to me. They both gave off a warm nostalgic feeling that left you with a smile on your face. The stories are both deep and heartwarming, and can also be sad. Kobato has more of a light feel to it, because it can make you laugh.
In both stories there is:
-a sweet innocent girl
-A guy that keeps a tough act
-A heartwarming story
if you like one, then you'll like the other.
Both series are tearjerkers with a plot revolving around all the hard work put in so that a girl can have her wish granted. There are other similarities as well that I will not mention due to spoilers.
-Amount of Drama
-Starts funny and gets sadder
-Main female character's best friend is a living animal plush
The only anime I would compare with Kobato would be Full Moon wo Sagashite. They maked me feel the same. Don't judge a book by its cover. You won't regret watching them.
Kobato and Full Moon wo Sagashite are both romantic comedies that make you laugh, smile, cry, and fall in love with the characters. Both involve the afterlife and strong bonds. Both protagonists are happy, optimistic, and hardworking. I fell in love with both these animes and all the characters. I recommend this anime to anyone looking to brighten their day!
There's a person who ends up helping everyone. (Tomoya and Kobato) Even though Kobato is clumsy and Tomoya is mostly sarcastic. (But really sweet. ^.^) There's also humor and love of course.
If you enjoyed watching one of them, you'll definitely like the other.
Both Clannad and Kobato leave give you a heart warming and good feeling after watching. Both female protagonists are cute, kind, and gentle. I highly recommend watching both these series for a feel good mood!
I'm amazed that Violet Evergarden reminded me of Kobato. In both series there is a female character in the main role helping out other people that they come close with during their travels. Main characters are kind of opposite in their personality but they are earnest and that's nice to see what they learn.
Both are female titular protagonists who start out in their series not having a lot of knowledge about the norms and basics of normal society. Through the interactions with other people, they slowly develop in terms of character, as they gradually grew to understand human emotions, especially love.
Additionally, both main characters' origins are of a dark variety.
* Both have these serious and sad moments
* Despite the main girl being so clumsy anime doesn't get any funnier
* Both guys are at least first cold towards the girls
* Both girls are like dreamers and you even could imagine that they came from another world
* Were touching anime
* Air is more unpredictible and you cannot understand this anime to the fullest
* Defenitely more mistery in Air
* Kobato has a more pleasant ending and overall is easier to watch.
Both Gakuen Alice and Kobato have similar humor, and characters. Mikan and Kobato are innocent, kind hearted, clumsy, and a bit stupid. Natsume Hyuga and Kiyokazu Fujimoto, they are sarcastic, both are concern for Mikan/Kobato though they didn't show it. Then there's Ruka and Doumoto, they are kind-hearted, they like Mikan/Kobato and both of them are childhood friends or Natsume/Kiyokazu.
The stories both have magic and helping other people. So if you like these characters, you may want to try watching this.
Both are sweet and lighthearted (mostly since Gakuen Alice grows into a darker anime/manga... but those are just details...). In both, the main character is exploring her new environment and making new relationships. The new friends usually learn important life lessons from the main heroine. There are stuffed animals that are alive in both, and both are very cute. One big difference is that Guaken has a villain, which Kobato doesn't... Instead, Kobato is more about her journey and her trying to complete her mission, but still, if you liked Gakuen, you will probably like Kobato.
A young girl and a guy in the 18-20 range live/work together while facing off against threats of their workplace being shut down. In Kobato's case, Kobato and Fujimoto are neighbors and work together at a children's nursery whose owner has debt issues. In Ikoku Meiro no Croisee's case, Yune is Claude's live-in maid at a signboard shop in the Galerie du Roy where a lot of small, privately owned shops are gradually (or severely) losing business to new, larger businesses in the area.
Both start as slice of life shows where a lively naive girl arrives to help someone. She ends up meeting an older guy that is harsh on her at first, but then slowly becomes softer, because she starts changing him. Also, later, the plot introduces some Drama & Forbidden love themes. Both are great stories, with lovely art, soundtrack, and give you a nice feeling.
they're similar because they both have a cold guy who begins to gradually open his heart up to a naiive, spirited girl. though itazura na kiss is more of a slice of life, both anime have some comedy and tell a beautiful love story
Both series are about girls that have been appeared in this world not without the aid of magic. Both heroines are very resilient. Though their life situations are different, they look somehow similar to me. Finals of these series also have some similarities (on my opinion)
- A hidden past
- Romantic scene
- a goal to reach (for the main characters)
- Supernatural/special abilities
- interesting plot/storyline
- highly attractive/addictive to anyone
- very touching, some or most series are sad
- cute characters :)
Both endings are really sweet.
Makoto's personality is very similar to Kobato. Loving, caring, and always find the good inside people's heart. Gintarou and Ioroyogi are so similar. Protecting their partner and always getting mad at them XD. Cool and powerful. They may fight and get on each others nerve, but in the end of the day it's all good.
I'm not going to say that it's that "similar," but both of main characters Kobato and Yato have to help people in oder to achieve their dreams. Both have fantasy and comedy, but the difference is that Noragami is more focused on action while Kobato is more focused on romance.
Kobato and Ai, despite their age difference, are both airheads, but have a deeper feel to them, once you get to know them better.
They both have a goal they must pursue and reach, while their journey leaves them with horrible, unthinkable scars, on their pure souls.
Kobato is slightly more "happy" than Kamisama no Inai Nichiyoubi
Space and time, multiple universes, fragments/pieces, memory-loss, magic, indirect romance, kawaiiness, GP-rated moeness, CGDCT, if plot elements like these are what you're looking for, then look no further with Houkago no Pleiades and Kobato.
Both of these anime has space and time concepts, as Houkago no Pleiades deals with multiverses in quite the same way as CLAMP's universe for Kobato-- space and time with magic, if I may add.
Much more, both of these seem to be looking for "fragments" that looks like sugar candies, with the former on engine fragments, and the latter on konpeito. Still not satisfied? Then both main characters also deal with a bit of memory losses and indirect romances, and they're also voiced by well-known seiyuus as well: Natsumi Takamori as Subaru, and Kana Hanazawa as Kobato.
Hence, with all the kawaiiness and moeness made, and to go with the same worry-free GP-rating, so you can let your imouto or son/daughter to watch these without getting a mindf*ck, Houkago no Pleiades and Kobato are what you earnestly be needing to watch. read more
Very gutsy female protagonists who stand up for what they believe in, they are also very passionate and vulnerable at the same time. The male protagonists and female MC relationships develop in a nice amount of time and isn't rushed. Both extremely funny series which both can get serious on some aspects. Both HILARIOUS
In some ways the endings are quite similar.
Both animes have main characters trying to follow their wish; In Pita Ten its Misha trying to become and angel, in Kobato its Kobato trying to get to a place she wants to go to.
Both main character have very long hair and are very cute.
Both have a male character who dislike the main character but softens up to her, In Kobato its Fujimoto, in Pita Ten its Kotarou.
kobato and shugo chara aren't that similar in particular parts, however there are some similaries
*Both have a heroine who helps others when their hearts have negativity/sadness in them
*Both heroines have some kind of companion (s) who help them in some way
*Both contain hints of romance
*both contain a bit of supernatural and real life elements
Each has a main character whom has a mission/wish to fulfill. They both experience the feelings of love and go through a journey with the people around them.
Both main characters also try and help the people around them (Ange helps the people around her and a universe whereas Kobato helps people around her)
They also have a plushy and are both similar in personality :)
Both of the main characters are trying to help others within the story. Both are not what they appear. The feel is very whimsical and dreamy. Characters strive for a difficult goals, and also have similar personality.
While Kobato is more shoujo and Letter bee more shounen, they have some things in common: Both main charas, Lag and Kobato are naive and emotional characters. They both have a mission which consists in helping people. While Lag delivers Letters who are fragments of heart of people, Kobato must fill a bottle with fragments of suffering hearts. The fragments are similar in the two animes: little shiny forms. They also are accompanied by their "guardians", Niche and Ioryogi. The goal is also very look like: both Kobato and Lag must complete their mission in order to be able to go to a certain place they desire.
The two have the plot centered about heaven, reborn, love and friendship. In both there´s also a goal that the main ones have to fulfill so they can go to another place. Also, Kanade and Kobato are voiced by the same voice actress.
Both are cute, relatively simplistic series that manage to surprise you with solid character development and a charming mix of humor, drama, and romance. Being CLAMP works, they share many stylistic similarities as well. Also, also, you get to see the super-awesome Piffle Princess store in both shows~! It apparently sells everything you'd ever want to buy.
Well, Skip Beat's atmosphere is very energetic, while on the other side Kobato's atmosphere is very sweet.
- both main female characters (Kobato and Kyoko) are very positive and cheerful and want to realize a dream/reach a goal. Kobato wants to fulfill her bottle in order to reach "that place", and Kyoko wants to become famous in order to take her revenge on her ex-boyfriend.
- but during their adventures to reach their goal, both girls meet a main male character and will, little by little, develope love or anyway strong feelings for those.
- both series are romantic shoujo genre.
If you alraedy liked one of those, it worth watching the other as well since they both are quite amazing and very colorful. read more
These 2 anime have a lot in common:
-both main female characters look similar,
-the shows share a similar atmosphere.
-Both anime have songs aka music scenes led by the main character.
If you liked one you will probably like the other one as well.
Both characters try to find the thing they need in order to be not in danger. Kobato needs to find these little star thingies while Conan tries to find evidence to get the suspect. Both are really good shows.
Both are about young girls looking for their place in the world while doing something very unusual and being unusual themselves. Kobato is collecting hearts to reach a certaing goal, Yurie is traing to be a real god but both of them keep their childish innocence and view on life even though their jobs are quite difficult and very serious and important. Both girls are similiar in nature and the way they handle their problems. Kobato is more of a drama than Kamichu! while Kamichu! is mainly a comedy. They both solve relationship problems but Kobato does it more maturely than Kamichu!. Kobato reminded me much of Kamichu! when I was watching it. read more
Both series emit a sort of nostalgic feeling that makes you feel calm and happy when you watch them (at least for me it did). Kobato and Sawako are socially awkward but in a good way; they are both naive, honest, and very considerate of others but they can be a bit overdramatic exceeding others' expectations. To a certain extent both are slice of life animes, although Kobato's got Clamp's usual magical elements and cross-over characters and Todoke's got Sawako's Sadako (the Ring, if you know what I mean) misunderstanding. The nostalgic feeling, lovable characters, cute plots, and the comedic moments would surely make you keep watching. read more
Same romantic feeling floating in the air, same "hard to get to" main character, refreshing pace when it comes to the story, utterly alike art... and... an ending that can stand alone and it's enough as it is (without a sequel).
You may think what the heck how are they alike? Well, the premise pretty much echos one another. They both include the uncommon theme of older girls with magical powers, and both main characters end up vowing to 'use Earth sympathy powers to save everyone' no matter how touching, preachy, or cheesy you may think that is. Your mileage may vary with both shows if the Earth sympathy type of awakening thing bugs the crap out of you or you get irritated anybody should even suggest that you should become more like I don't know...(the Amish, Saints, or Indians) or god forbid, that you should turn nice instead of naughty. However, in my opinion, aside from the strong streak of non-conventionalism/pacifism/conservatism/environmentalism/etc (all of which is especially rampant in Earth Maiden Arjuna) generally, the whole point of each show is for the characters to channel Martin Luther King Jr. or any other famous activist and every other thing that has ever mattered in the history of ever possibly. What do I mean? Well, watching either Kobato. or Earth Maiden Arjuna is good for you in actuality. You see, watching something like Earth Maiden Arjuna will make you think more about environment, sharing, working hard, living in peace, and equality if you don't already think about it. And then something like Kobato. will simply coexist in harmony in your presence in order to make you feel like a badass singing lullabies to babies, singing to trees, and befriending Angels in your neighborhood. These are positive shows that are in essence good for your soul; so, therefore, I recommend both. read more
They are both made by the same author and have a similar feeling. They both have supernatural elements and take place in the same universe and have great stories. They're mysterious and interesting, though quite different.
The series deal with magic and the two main character girls are simply kind and caring along with adorable and plus the two main voice actors in Kobato are also in Mahou Tsukai ni Taisetsu na Koto: Natsu no Sora. And there is a grumpy guy in both of them , in a way the animes are the same but also different but only the same when it comes to the characters but still very fantasy and magical.
