Kobato. #4 Special Edition

There will be a Special Edition for Kobato. #4 to celebrate the recently-announced anime adaptation. It’ll be released in the Autumn to coincide with the anime broadcast.

More information will be given in the May issue of Newtype (on sale in April).

The information comes from an advertisement that came with Kobato. #3. was kind enough to let me know about it, scan the ad and translate its contents!

The ad reads:

“Kobato.” Fourth Comic Volume planned to have a Special Edition to Commemorate the Anime Adaption!!
Planned for sale in Fall 2009!

Much thanks to for this news!

Now we know a possible release date for Kobato. #4 (I foresee no breaks if they want to release it up to October-November, then). This is so exciting, I can’t wait to find out more about the extras of this Special Edition.

Stay tuned for more info!
