Kobato 09-10-11: Not Dead Yet

A dreaded three headed cute monster has appeared! Doing the dreaded triple review of episodes to catch up. I’ve been really tied up through the holidays and I know there’s even more episodes out and the new stuff is starting to pop up around the interwebs but you’ll have to take it at my pace. […]

Kobato 06-07: Hide and Seek Super Fun Plot Explosion

This is Kobato looking for the plot, luckily 30 seconds later she found it but not before tripping on it of course! After a long ridiculous week at work (thought technically I still have tomorrow to go) I was pretty happy to come home to Kobato. After the firefly episode my heart has completely melted […]

Kobato 05: Hope and Fireflies

At this moment I wasn’t sure Kobato could read… After overcoming great technical difficulties (a storm knocked my internet out for THREE DAYS) here I am with the fifth installment of Kobato.

Kobato 02-03: Cameos, Umbrellas, and Candy

I love you Iroyogi-san, don’t change. So I’m doing a little catch up since I joined the team mid-season. I really wanted this to be a Samurai High School post but some unfortunate things that made me feel a bit like I had Kobato’s common sense happened and I won’t be able to post it […]

Kobato 01: In CLAMP I Trust (Kind Of…)

Ever since I became an anime fan I knew that CLAMP was the bandwagon for me. Is it the pointy faces? The impossibly wide shoulders? Or is it the strange undercurrent of bisexuality in all of their works? I may never know, but one thing I do know is that CLAMP is a team of […]
