Okay so… that was weird XD
But I’m used to the weird endings of CLAMP, it usually ends with a happy ending but a very twisted happy ending.
And I don’t know how much of an input Ohkawa had in this ending, but the manga will definitely have a different ending (that is, Kobato and Fujimoto might end up together but under different circumstances).
I think I liked episode 23 more than episode 24, those last minutes of episode 23 were DRAMATIC XD I love how EVIL Ushagi is XDDD
I don’t understand much of what happened, I need to watch the subbed version, but apparently Kobato’s wish is to be with the person she likes the most? Which is that alternative version of Fujimoto? But I’m not sure at all of this.
And SHE HAS A CROWN IN HER HEAD!!!! AWWW! That’s so CLAMP! ♥ Much better than a halo! Well it is a Halo, but CLAMP style ^_~
The thing with everyone forgetting about Kobato is becoming a little too overused by CLAMP. First Card Captor Sakura, then Tsubasa and now Kobato? Maybe there’s more I can’t remember now, but there are other means of punishments and consequences and showing how important someone is. Anyway just hope this argument won’t be used in the manga as well.
So we did find out the purpose of Kouhaku in the series: explain Fujimoto about Kobato LOL
Fujimoto got a new job and went to live in a big house or something?
Love to see Sayaka wearing a ring and the kids poking Okiura around in the new Nursery school that they are probably running together.
Too bad they didn’t explain much of the creatures’ background, or their true forms, maybe they want to save it for the manga (but they could have given more info instead of pointless original episodes).
Overall it was a good series, I enjoyed to watch it, the adaptation was so-so, I think it lost itself a little in its main point, they seem to forget about Kobato’s wish and her or Fujimoto’s feelings, to unravel everything in the last episodes. It looked rushed in the end. The key plot elements were distributed into the first and final episodes, they forgot about the in-between episodes.
But it was truly the environment of a CLAMP anime. The atmosphere, the crossovers, the details, but they didn’t explore well Okiura and the creatures, that was a failure.
