According to this month’s installment of Kobato. News!! section in Newtype, there will be some “big announcement” about Kobato. in the next issue of the magazine.
It also says that this month’s installment of Kobato. News!! was the last one. It says information about Kobato. will still be published in Newtype, just no longer in Kobato. News!!.
Ohhhhh, so big news for Kobato., huh? I’m so excited about it! Then we have CLAMP-NET announcing that in the next Newtype issue there will be an “Anime Commemoration” Tosho Card application service. I wonder if these two are related…
If they are, I wouldn’t say Kobato. will be getting a TV anime just yet, I think it’s too soon. Unless Kobato. won’t last for too long, but I don’t think that’s the case. Or, unless it’s going to be just like the X TV anime announcement, that was announced in July 1999 but the anime only started in October 2001 ! Besides, CLAMP-NET says the Tosho Card is a “Anime Commemoration”, not “TV Anime”. But maybe I’m speculating too much xD
For now, I would bet on a music video! Wouldn’t it be great?
Newtype says the Tosho Card illustration will be drawn by CLAMP, I wonder if it’ll be one of those illustrations with anime coloration.
Also, I don’t understand why they are ending Kobato. News!! if information about Kobato. will still be published in Newtype anyway. Will CLAMP use that extra page to make longer chapters?
We’ll just have to wait and see ^^
The text can be roughly translated as,
This issue of Kobato. News!! was the last one. …In the next issue there will also be a big announcement!! Information about Kobato. will still be published in Newtype. Let’s look forward to it.
CLAMP in CARDLAND PARTICULAR BOX:
The official website of CLAMP in CARDLAND has a slightly bigger version of the cover artwork from Animate’s release, CLAMP in CARDLAND PARTICULAR BOX:
And here’s an advertisement showing that the clear files will feature the Point Card illustrations from Series 1 and 3:
Unlike what I had previously posted, that those clear files would feature Subaru, Seishirou and Fye (I must have been drunk when I wrote that, I’m sorry), and also my guess that they might be new illustrations was wrong (I wasn’t too sure about it anyway XD). At least this will be a good chance to check these two great illustrations in high resolution, I hope.
PARTICULAR BOX will be released in December.
