Today there was a press conference in Tokyo at NHK Broadcasting Central where the first episode of the Kobato. TV series was shown. Kobato’s seiyuu, Kana Hanazawa, and director Mitsuyuki Masuhara attended the event.
You can check a report from the event in Mainichi.
There isn’t much info except for the director saying that the 4 seasons of the year will be an important theme in the story and Kobato’s costumes will change in every episode.
I hadn’t realize how cute Kana Hanazawa is until now XD She reminds me of Juri Ueno from Nodame Cantabile somehow (I think it’s the haircut).
