Synopsis

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]

This manga is the most amazing piece of artwork from CLAMP. The story is nice, the characters have a personality you can look into and have a mutual understanding. It was such a great manga that I was so happy with the ending. I could even later on through the story, understand the non-protagonist characters and the bad guys too. I have enjoyed Tsubasa, Chobits, and other works from CLAMP. But Kobato is one graphic novel that I have been enjoying even after all this time.

Spoiler: the ending chapter with little Kobato was just so cute! Seeing how she was reincarnated and how she read more

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.

Kobato Hanato is a mysterious girl who's mission is to fill up a bottle in order to grant her wish. The only problem is, the bottle can only be filled when she heals wounded hearts. With the help of her strange and foul-mouthed friend, a stuffed dog like thing read more

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

Hanato Kobato is a girl who is accompanied by a hot tempered little dog named Ioryogi-san. Her job is to fill a bottle with "fragments" of healed hearts from people she helps. Once the bottle is full she can have her wish granted (no one knows what it is yet). Soon, she runs into a woman named Sayaka and a man named Fujimoto who both run Yomogi nursery. Kobato soon realizes that Yomogi nursery may be in danger but continues her mission with the bottle. No one quite knows who she is or where she came from, but there are suspicions that she may be read more
