Do enjoy it !!
I’m loving the pins of crowned “C” that Kobato is wearing in the splash page ^^
I’m also loving the rounded panels representing flashback scenes ^-^
Kobato thought just like me, that usually when a woman gets divorced, she changes her name back to her maiden name. But that’s the problem, isn’t it? Maybe Sayaka never wanted to get divorced in the first place?
I think both of them still love each other, Sayaka and the Debt Collector (I want to know his first name, damn it!). Isn’t that so obvious? xD I just think that it’s one of those situations where one must think that the other is not, but they are both in love with each other.
I don’t know what made Sayaka fall in love with the boss of the Yakuza, unless Sayaka herself was a former member of the Yazuka (remember Chitose’s words about Sayaka’s past). Or, maybe she met him before he became their boss.
I think the Debt Collector wants to close the school because he wants Sayaka
only for himself to work less and spend more time with him? I don’t know, that’s my primary theory right now…
This chapter probably wins when it comes to biggest amount of crossovers in a Kobato chapter XD In 4 pages we had Fujimoto in a Ushagi costume, hell TOUYA in a Ushagi costume, giving away cough drops HELL YEAH IN FRONT OF THE GREEN DRUGSTORE! And hell yeah, we do see Kakei, Kazahaya and Rikuou in the background, god!!!! It’s too much fan-service for too few pages xDD
It was just a matter of time for us to see Touya, really. It was such a big surprise but at the same time it wasn’t. He and Fujimoto are so alike, and seeing them working together in what probably is the funniest part-job Touya has ever worked for is just pure bliss. I love you for doing that with us, CLAMP, never stop feeding us with your crossovers.
And then we have Gouhou Drug’s participation, just awesome! I gotta love Kakei’s advertising methods xD Why do I think that he first offered this job to Rikuou and Kazahaya? XDDD This pretty much settles even more that Kobato.’s story happens in the same universe of Card Captor Sakura, ‘Suki. Dakara Suki’, Gouhou Drug, XXXHOLiC and (most likely) Wish.
“Most likely” because there’s a suspicion that Wish’s characters are related to Gouhou Drug’s characters (more specifically, Kazahaya), and also because Ioryogi seem to know Ushagi, the God messengers from Wish? OMG! That is soooo… fittable! Again it’s such a surprise, but at the same time so expected!
I just hope more Gouhou Drug appearances (hopefully bigger than cameos) and more about Ushagi (Kobato is clueless about them, it seems, I don’t think she’s an angel, then).
Oh, and by the way, wouldn’t it be just AWESOME if we see this same scene happening in Gouhou Drug, once it’s returned, from its point of view? It would be perfect.
Alright, enough of crossovers (look how much thought these 4 pages caused me), let’s talk about the plot, Yuuto, the PLOT!
So who’s Ioryogi going to see? My guess: Baumkuchen! Who? The big black bear from the CLAMP No Kiseki short comics? I think it’s about time for him to appear.
Fujimoto giving Kobato cough drops because he thought Ioryogi’s rough voice was hers: cute!
