This month’s Newtype magazine will announce more cast members from the Kobato. TV anime. Even though the magazine is only officially out on the 10th, the information has already leaked through the japanese board 2ch.
Kohaku: Chiwa Saitou
Kiyokazu Fujimoto: Tomoaki Maeno
Sayaka Okiura: Fumiko Orikasa
Chitose Mihara: Houko Kawashima
Kazuto Okiura: Shinichiro Miki
Fujimoto’s seiyuu looks like a newcomer, like Kobato’s seiyuu. The seiyuus of Sayaka, Chitose and the Debt Collector, on the other hand, are all long-time professionals. I was surprised with Chitose’s seiyuu, she did Satsuki in X and Minoru in Chobits, and they are both pretty “down” characters, not “kind” as I imagine Chitose to be… hummm, we’ll see.
Oh and we got to know the Debt Collector’s first name, it’s Kazuto! =D And I’m very happy with the seiyuu choice, Shinichiro Miki is perfect!
The Kobato. anime will start on October 6 (just one month away!)
And this is a preview for the next issue of Newtype, which will be celebrating the debut of the Kobato. TV Anime with lots of CLAMP features:
Thanks for the picture!
The preview says:
– Cover will be drawn by CLAMP;
– More information about the Kobato. anime;

– Trading cards giveaway that they are calling “CLAMP TRUMP”.
Lots of things to look forward to in the next Newtype issue, huh? The magazine will be on sale October 10.
