I think everyone who is questioning the Fujimoto and Kobato thing i think u need to rewatch the series bc it does explain it but it is hidden in the story but i cant tell u what it is bc then that will take away from it but it is there when u watch it think outside the box when any part of those comes up

If Kobato was 'reborn', shouldn't she be around 4 years old?

It was an amazing ending. While I feel like some parts were missing, at first I wanted to give it a 8, but it felt harsh and wanted to rate it a 9.. I couldn't really make up my mind but in the end that ending made me chose 9 instead.

Sweet ending. Although some things were left unexplained, all the characters were happy in some way.

A lot of people are saying that Koabto would be really young. Doesn't anyone remember that her wish was to transcend time to be with her love again? That also explains why she reappears in the photo again as though she lived that life but was also living another life. I'd say Fujimoto would be about 26 and Kobato would be 22. If she was born when she died, she'd only be about 6 because the previous kindergarten kids were in middle school (uniforms).
In my opinion, the ending wasn't spectacular. I was expecting more info on the war with heaven. It was really cute because the lives of everyone as time passed was shown and that was about the only thing I liked. To be honest, I didn't expect it to be one of those 'destiny romance' animes. Still, it was more complete than Angel Beats lol.
Pirates are evil? The Marines are righteous? These terms have always changed throughout the course of history! Kids who have never seen peace and kids who have never seen war have different values! Those who stand at the top determine what's wrong and what's right! This very place is neutral ground! Justice will prevail, you say? But of course it will! Whoever wins this war becomes justice!

Well I absolutely loved this series, and my question to those who hated it is, why the heck would you watch more than the first episode?
What this series was all about was pretty obvious right from the opening, and I'd think anybody who hated sweet, funny and beautiful would have run screaming the second this anime started.
I thought it was perfect and I loved every single minute of it, and yeah, as soon as I can get a copy on blu-ray, I'll watch it again.

Ah what a fantastic Christmas present - such an uplifting ending and beautiful series. There's something bittersweet about seeing the passage of time in anime, and seeing all of the characters growing up. I thought that they were going to leave it at Kobato meeting Fujimoto again and parting ways, but I like how they ended up reuniting in the end because of that song.

Overall this was a very heartwarming, inspiring, and sweet anime series. I like how not everything was solved and how it showed that although you can't make everything go your way in life, you can always find ways to make the best of what you're getting (such as when Sayaka decides to start from scratch with the nursery). I think Kobato is going to earn a spot in my favorite characters, she was perfect mix of cute, caring, and hilarious. Also felt HanaKana brought out Kobato's character the best.

Merry Christmas Kobato, 9/10.

One of the few series that have the advantage of having a final, on which you can not think about that and say: Superb! * _ *
Anime that slowly penetrates the soul of the user, sin is not made ​​good by Madhouse, at least watching the TV series.
And if the drawings have been redone as often happens switching from TV to the BD version, then it's a whole different ballgame! ^ ^ "
What can I say, a final so it is always a pleasure to see the heart and makes you feel overwhelmed by so many feelings and load!
I'll miss Kobato and Ioryogi-san! T_T

Final rating by virtue of the final events of the past and goes from 7/10 to 8/10!

There is too much to be said about this anime. The whole situation to me was a huge WTF, then it was like a YAY they are together..

I really like how it ended all happy so I guess my Kompeito is out :b
Until next time!

Behold of my awesomeness~

After nearly a year, I finished Kobato, almost appropriately with how a year had passed in the main story. This show is quite simple and straightforward really, having very little twists and turns throughout most of its run. I really appreciate Kobato for maintaining this cheerful, calm, kind, slightly sad yet optimistic feeling all through. It's truly a show about nice people just trying to get by.

That was a brilliantly satisfying ending. Well there are still a lot of loose ends but I dont really care anymore. I was originally planning on giving this an 8 but after the ending I feel like bumping it up to a 9.

So in the end, Kobato return. YES!!! <3KOBATO!!!!

Does Kobato's soul have a similar thing to Suichiro? Like Kohaku said, even though he may lose his memories, his soul is still the same, they just make new memories each time he comes back?

I adored the ending. But dang, so many years passed. We see Makina and the preschool kids going to middle school I suppose. Sayaka has a new preschool and is most likely in her early 40's, and she's got a helper as well. And of course, the Chi Twins are fully grown up.

Bittersweet episode, the good sweet stuff coming at the end. 10/10 for me. It may have been slow at first but I enjoyed the early episodes, Kobato's clumsy yet cheery self.

Great. I cried a lot. It's basically a copy of Wish with a little difference but it still manages to drain my tears.

Such is the power of CLAMP.

Cliche? Yes, it is. Unexplained missing plot points? Plenty. CLAMP stories are full of those. But that doesn't stop me from loving their stories lol. Also, gotta love the crossovers XD I grinned a lot when Syaoran's group showed up. Would love to see more Mokona vs Ioryogi. Perhaps in one of CLAMP's other works there'd be cameo of the shiro manjuu and doggie

Ok, that was boring anime with annoying characters and cheesy drama. I really wanted to drop it, the only thing that kept me from doing so was hoping for some deeper develpoment of Iorogi and Kobato past. In the end that part disappointed me too. But last few episodes were still really good and that ending... simply perfect.
Now I'm not sure how to rate it. Around ep. 20 I thought I'll just push it to end and give 4/10 but with such ending I can't go below 6/10 D:

I finally finished this show, have been watching it for over a year.
It was pretty fun overall, Kobato is one of the cutest characters I've ever seen.
The ending however, it's nice and all, but to be honest I wished they'd focus on Kobato and Iyorogi making her wish come true, rather than making her fall in love with Fujimoto, that guy really pisses me off!
There are also a few things about the ending that were left unexplained (or the explanations weren't clear).
Anyway it was a nice and fun ride, I give it a 7/10.

So in the end, this was all about romance without all that much romance in it. A between the lines thing with a romantic ending. Why isn't it tagged as romance?
