Already posted this over at twitter but in case anyone doesn’t know yet, the Kobato. artbook release date has been postponed to October 19.

CLAMP-NET.COM also mentions a “comic cover replacement” (特別付録 コミックス替えカバー) in Jump SQ #12. Maybe an additional cover for volume 1? Not really sure of what that means…
GATE 7 #2 is coming out on November 4.
The BLOOD-C TV Anime ended its main broadcast on TBS channel with 12 episodes. The movie will be released on June 6, 2012 with the same staff and cast .
I really liked the final episode, in fact the final 2 episodes were good and a lot better than the rest. I wish that instead of dragging the plot for 10 whole episodes they could have worked better in building tension for the big revelations, in other words, I think the series’ composition was flawed (and CLAMP’s Ohkawa was in charge of that). The episodes were too repetitive, always following the same formula. I’m glad the mood changed in the final episode, I hope the movie will follow the same atmosphere. The animation was overall very poor, characters were too shallow and creatures too bizarre. I’ll give a 3/10 rate for this since I wasn’t hooked by most of it.
