Kobato. TV Anime #12 (Updated)

This episode was particularly well-animated, I loved the animation here =)

The episode was heavy in plot too, it reveals some information that were revealed very recently in the manga.

Love to see some new Wish characters! I hope they will eventually appear more, and moving around hopefully! xD

The bits with Sayaka and Fujimoto tying the bow in Ioryogi were so funny! XDDDD

I love the scenes within the Baumkuchen shop XD They are so well-animated too, specially Genko, I like the color and shading of his fur xD

I didn’t understand some parts of the conversation between Ioryogi and Ginsei, for example, I don’t know what Ioryogi said that made Ginsei change his mind about destroying the bottle. Also, the part where we see the origin of the name “Ioryogi” was completely new! So Kobato couldn’t say “Iorogi” properly and that’s how “Ioryogi” came upon. I wonder if we can consider that as canon since it hasn’t been revealed in the manga yet. But having Ohkawa on the staff makes me think it’s canon. I thought he was hiding his real name from Kobato, but apparently Ioryogi had no problem in revealing his real name to her. I’m not sure how much about Ioryogi Kobato knows, probably nothing xD

This is the first time that Kobato sees Ginsei, but she didn’t make any big questions about him to Ioryogi… hummm… well, you could say “it’s Kobato…” =/

I think Kohaku’s appearance was rather random, but okay, just so we know he still lives xD

They still haven’t said anything about Kobato not being able to remove her hat….

The acting of Inada and Namikawa were so good! For a moment I really forgot that I knew them from previous animes.

Next episode is already Autumn! Aren’t we moving too fast through the seasons? Didn’t she have like 4 seasons as deadline? Will it be extended? I’m starting to think they will leave the Bazaar for the final episodes…

The animation for the upcoming episode looks pretty neat, and finally a new costume for Kobato!

    Hi!
    asdasdasdasdasdad we got tons of things here!!…I totally agree about the animation…it was gorgeous…there were no low points, Ginsei looked very cool and this episode made some justice for Doumoto since his first appareance wasn’t in the best animated episode (I’d say the worst so far :/) it was nice seeing him ^^

    I LOVE GENKO!!! he gives such an special atmosphere with his bamkuchen xD all those details, like choosing the ribbons to tie the boxes and even the music make me enjoy his participation xD his seiyuu does a great work with him too ^^

    I got say I really liked the images of the angels and demons…in fact, in my opinion, they looked better in the anime…in the manga the image of all of them together looked kinda plain for me (but still pretty ^^)…and I really wanted to see Yuuko and Clow u__u

    I really need to watch the subbed version to understand what they were saying…when Ginsei took the bottle I went like “wtf! asdasdasd NO WAY!! O___O” The series is getting really interesting and far from being another “moe-I don’t know what stupid thing”

    Really liked the episode…can’t wait to see how Ohkawa is going to twist all these.

    • I totally forgot about Yuuko and Clow! LOL! That would be indeed nice to see xD

      I like how all the creatures’ fur had more than 1 color in this episode, their fur was so well-shaded xD

      WORD about Genko’s shop, makes me wanna go there every time!

  2. From what I understood (and I may be wrong), it was because Ioryogi asked Ginsei to “please” not destroy the bottle and the fact that he had asked in such desperation that it surprised him (cuz “Iorogi” probly was never the type to be like that, which makes sense seeing how much Ginsei was disappointed to see Ioryogi reduced to “such a state” here in the human world). And Ginsei also thinks back to the when Genko was saying how much Ioryogi has changed etc etc, so Ginsei just changed his mind and left instead.

    I was just super amused when I saw Kohaku’s imagination of Ioryoji “chasing” Ginsei—it doesn’t help that both seiyuu are also Kurogane and Fai’s seiyuu too and it’s just much lol for me “listening” to their laughs xD

    As for the episodes, well so far there’s only 24 episodes planned so if they decide to evenly split the episodes, there should be more or less 6-eps per season, give or take? Not sure how they’re planning to do this… or how the heck they’re planning to finish the series in the amount of episodes given that we’re already at the halfway mark. I guess we’ll see~

      That is correct!

    • xxxHOLiC fate maybe?

      The premise of the first season was Watanuki working in order for Yuuko to grant his wish. There are 2 seasons, one movie, 2 OAD and Watanuki’s wish will be “granted” (I know there’s a mistake, please no spoilers) in the next OAD.

      Or even worse, Tsubasa fate.

      Syaoran hasn’t still managed to save Sakura (in the animated versions)

      Perhaps Kobato will end at the start of the 3rd season (since one season has lasted 12 episodes, and the other one is likely to last 12 as well). Then Kobato second season (3rd and 4th season), then CLAMP will add a mind screw or a twisted plot and make OVAs.

  3. I think the animation was good for the animals but a bit weird for humans (except for the end, then suddenly Kobato became pretty again).

    This episode was ok for me, I don’t have big complaints about it (^^) When Kobato was trying to say Iorogi’s name she really looked like a newborn being ;;; Let’s see if we’ll get this explaination in the manga as well with a different dress, please.

    Next episode’s animation looks good! I love the choice of colors for that dress, and I’m glad little by little they’re showing more dresses she had in the manga.

  4. Quite like how this episode shown the bond between Kobato and Ioryogi, even if it was anime original. It was nice also how Fujimoto was apart of understanding the bond.

    It was also good to see Kokuyo, Kouryuu, Ruri and Hari, even if it was just a little scene talking about hell :D. Oh and Kohaku is in this episode, though her role seemed kinda pointless, yet again. :p

    & yay for more Doumoto. I just love how easy he is on the eyes.

    Next week, Autumn!

    As for another season, naah, this one will have classic MADHOUSE anime original end.

  5. Although I really liked all episodes up until now a lot, I can say, that this is definetely my favorite!
    The thing that I liked best was when Fujimoto found Ioryogi.
    “Ioryogi and I are always together!”
    This phrase was somehow…well, it came from the bottom of her heart! Although Ioryogi is sometimes really strict with Kobato he seems to care a lot for her.
    I liked the colours a lot, especially all these shades of red looked awesome :’)
    And the music is awesome! I’m so absolutely happy that they chose this componist! At first I had some doubst because I didn’t know him at allI feared that they would use a lot of computer-made music and I would have really disliked that. Music have to be played by real humans on an real instrument, a computer can’t put feelings into the music! But when the first episode aired I was totally enchanted! I so love the soundtrack (and I can’t wait for its release \^o^/)!
    I don’t know how to put this, but to me it have been the best episode so far, a really special one!

  6. Perhaps it’s the translation,but the part where Bear-san said what Ioryogi had to have no matter what. He also said “Yeah. It would’ve been better if he had just slipped in and steal it like the Devil’s brat.” I can’t help think about Kokuyo. Do you think what Ioryogi wanted was an angel’s love? 😮 That would cause alot of trouble esp. if the angel didn’t like him in return and the war was troublesome too. Also, in the manga, it did mention him crossing into the three worlds. So maybe… :3

  7. I really liked this ep 😀 The ribbon thing with Ioryogi was cute XD It was sweet how Kobato just cudnt pronounce Iorogi’s name lol. I was kinda hoping Kohaku wud step in and help Ioryogi with Ginsei but i dont know what Kohaku can do anyway (havent read Wish much at all).
