Sweet and naïve Hanato Kobato has come to Earth on a mission to collect and fill a bottle with "konpeito," which appears after healing a person's heart that is suffering. Kobato collects these because it is her wish to go to a certain place. Despite her strangeness, Kobato turns out to be well-suited for this mission as her heartfelt sincerity in helping others earns her the love and admiration of everyone she meets; however, she is not allowed to fall in love with anyone whose heart she heals.

[Written by MAL Rewrite]


Kobato. was published in English by Yen Press from May 18, 2010 to June 26, 2012; as well as in eBook format on January 21, 2014.

Kobato can make you happy and smile for the rest of the day. I have also seen the anime which is very good. The artwork is amazing. Kobato's outfits in particular are very detailed. It's a very heartfelt story with deep meaningful characters that will make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside. One of Clamp's best work and defiantly worth a read for any fans. Compared to an earlier work, Wish, Kobato wins hands down.

Please note that I haven't finished reading "Kobato" yet, because it is still in the process of publishing.

Kobato is one of those mangas that makes you smile. And I don't mean just any smile; the kind of smile that comes from seeing acts of kindness (and cuteness) that only our heroin, Kobato Hanato, could create.

First off I've read all the released chapter which would be Drop. 23d. (Which I've counted all the chapters to be about 39 if they are published by real chapters like in Yen Press so that is why it says I've read 39 chapters.) Kobato. has not ended yet, though and is released monthly. Now for the review.

O.k. I will say that when I first heard of Kobato. I didn't think it would be all that great. I was looking at works by CLAMP, who I enjoy a lot of manga from and when I got to Kobato. I thought it just looked stupid. read more
