Kobato. Episode 11 Discussion
Dec 22, 2009 5:25 AM
THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
Kobato is not so careful again and bumped into Fujimoto again. Fujimoto is going to work again. Sayaka counting the money again. Kobato asked if she needs any help, but Sayaka is telling Kobato to go home. She found the guide book of part-time jobs.
Ioryougi is fixing himself. Kobato is amazed at there are many part-time jobs available (she borrowed the book). That's because she's going to get a part-time job like Fujimoto for helping the debt. She's thinking about various possibilities... Many Xs. Ioryougi failed fixing himself.
Kobato asked Chitose to help fix Ioryougi. Kobato asked her for another favor. Kobato met a person from before who lend umbrella. He's tencho of the shop Ueda. She introduced Kobato to him and requested for a work. He said it would be helpful if she help out on the busy weekend. It's because another girl who hurt her hand. Her name is Yumi Oomura.
Chitose left and Kobato changed into the uniform for the shop. Yui is teaching Kobato because she doesn't know what to do: Say" irrasshaimase!" , put the ordered cake into a box, leaving the accounting to Yui, then say "arigatou gozaimashita!". A customer came and Yumi is testing her. Kobato is not good at remembering all the orders because she ordered so many cakes! Yum repeated for her. Kobato is still nervous, even dropped a cake! Yumi is worried. Fortunately, she is able to put all the orders in the box and sent the customer off.
Another customer came, it's Marina and her mother! It's Marina's b-day, so they are getting her cake. Kobato got her cake in the box from Ueda, but later found out that she put a wrong cake! She tripped by trying to get Marina.
More and more customers came and they are very busy with the orders + making many mistakes. Kobato is tired. Ueda gave her a cake. She said Ioryougi will be very happy. Yumi is like "Io...?" Ueda is counting on Kobato again tomorrow. He also told Yumi that she can go home now. She asked she needs to put away things. He said he will do it. Yumi worries about Ueda. Even if she asked him, he said nothing's wrong. Kobato's idea of worry is only one... debt! She told Yumi about the debt and that it was the reason for her to get part-time job to of any help to them. Yumi wants to help Ueda, too.
Ioryougi is eating. Kobato is thinking about who wants to help but couldn't is painful. She's going to investigate about Ueda's worry. Ioryougi said it's fine but don't do extra things which get her fired. He won't be able to eat such delicious cake anymore. He's daydreaming about various food now. He asked about other part-time jobs she's getting. She told him she's going to continue with cake shop.
Kobato works again. Ueda asked her to display the cookies. Yumi felt that he sighed while looking at her. Yumi thinks that Ueda's worry relates to herself. Kobato said she's going to ask about his worry.
Kobato went in and asked about his worry directly, and he said nothing. She mentioned that what Yumi discovered. He said there's nothing for Yumi to worry about.
Sayaka is here. She's going to visit Chitose, so she's buying some cake to bring there. Yumi mentioned that she once bought one for her husband. She was kind of hesitating about that question.
Ioryougi explained to Kobato that she's married and has a husband. She said she never saw one. Ioryougi said she might divorced. Kobato felt Sayaka was lonely. Ioryougi told Kobato not to ask her directly. There are some things people don't want to talk about, like Kobato hides the truth about helping out Sayaka by getting part-time job. Kobato wondered about Ueda's worry is the same situation. Yumi really wants to know about it, though. What should Kobato do for this kind of situation. Ioryougi said like investigating secretly..., though it's impossible for Kobato to do so. Kobato is going to investigate secretly!
Kobato is outside the shop and investigating secretly and one of the twins said she's like a detective. She learned that it's called detective (lol, through manga!). The twins are going to help out with being a detective! She said no because being a detective means alone. She begins to ask the customers questions like a detective. It's useless because they don't know about Ueda's private life. Ioryougi is going to depend on the bear guy again.
The bear guy refused.
Kobato came in at night and told Yumi she's a detective now. She reported to Yumi what she learned so far. Ueda came in not noticing them. Kobato and Yumi followed him.
He's waiting for someone, she doesn't know. Now Yumi is worried because it might be a date and that 's why he wasn't able to tell her about it. Kobato talked too loud and Ueda heard it. Yumi went away. Kobato and Ueda followed her. Kobato tripped! It was an interview he's meeting for another person to help out. He wasn't able to give Yumi a break... He was worried about her! Ueda thinks that she overworked, so she's tired, thus got hurt, probably... He felt guilty for using a hardworking person like Yumi. Yumi said no, she's happy and having fun working for Ueda, so she doesn't want break.
Also, the reason she got hurt because she was practicing baking cakes, to think that she could of any help. She was learning how to bake a cake secretly. Ueda is trying the cake she made. He said delicious. Since there's another helper, so he's inviting Yumi for learning to make cakes together.
Kobato got another piece and reported that it was a lovely case which they are thinking about each other. Kobato realized that it wasn't from Chiroru and guessing it's related to bear guy (for Kobato, she only knows about him as Information guy). Ioryougi hides the question by giving her a point. 100 points because he got cakes. Then she heard the sound of key, that means Fujimoto is back. She gave him the chocolate from the shop. She told him please take some rest or go to school more often because she's going to try her best. Fujimoto said when she's trying her best, not good things happen. He told her not to make hard on herself. Kobato said he's worrying about her? He said no, Kobato still says thank you. Fujimoto realized the point on her face and said wash up the doodle.

The setting this time around was a complete rip-off from Chobits. Chii also worked in a cake store. The girl at the store was also called Yumi (I think, it's been awhile since I've watched Chobits). The owner of the cake store was also a troubled man.
But I digress. This episode is a good one. I liked it. I thought some people in "Kobato" get upset over the tiniest thing, but it's always nice to see that things work out in the end... also, Kobato was cute as a detective.
lol they are the same characters, i think the landlord, baker and yumi are same characters from Chobits.

I still don't see Kobato eating in this scene....
she's obviously not human if you haven't realized it yet.
Did my sentence imply that the doll is more human than Kobato? Nice you have some nice analysis skills.
I am saying Kabato is probably an angel or some sort, or demon. It's not revealed yet so I am simply guessing, however she is definitely not human. Notice she's always wearing something on her head? She probably has a halo, or horns. Maybe...

Well, I don't think she's an angel (she didn't know Kohaku and didn't recognize Usyagi) and she's too innocent and cute to be a demon or a devil like Kouryuu. Kobato always has a hat on so I think she has something very not-human under it. I don't think it's a halo or horns because none of Wish's charcters had them.
In the opening she looks at the birds with sadness (?) and she is called "Dove" so maybe it's connected with that. And where is the place she wishes to go?
Kobato also doesn't know anything about human world ("what is a detective?) so I don't think she has been ever connected to the human world.
Uhh, sorry for my English..
Next episode is bout Ginsei....he is cool despite being a cat with a patch eye ^^

Chobits was a good show, so seeing a lot of those characters return in a slightly different settings is nice.
Kobato is as silly and clumsy as ever, but in the end, she always manages to put things right between troubled people.
Loved how she cornered Ioryogi about his baumkuchen.

God, no matter how much I try to like this show, it just seems so boring :/
Anyway, fine episode... part with the "detective mode", and end with Ioryogi were cute and funny.
Yup, this show was entertaining at first, it was one of the shows I would follow each week, but slowly the plot really makes me not want to waste any time on it anymore.

I really loved this episode, this is so much better when you don't marathon it but watch it once in a while.
Comedy was also good as usual, I'm looking forward to more of this.
