To ease all the pain and suffering in this world is no simple task, but young Kobato earnestly believes that she has the talent and ability to do just that! However, the half-human creature known as Ioryogi doubts whether the strange girl with the mysterious past is truly ready to receive the mystical flask Kobato needs to achieve her goal, a special bottle gifted with the ability to capture the pain and sorrow of a broken heart once it's been healed. There's really only one way to find out if Kobato truly deserves the right to use the flask - Ioryogi decides to send Kobato on her first assignment!
Here's a question for those people who are good at finding names in credits (unless I'm looking for the VA of a particular character I can never seem to find what I'm looking for): Are any of the people who created Clannad involved with creating Kobato? The reason I'm asking is because she's reminding me more and more of Fuuka from Clannad (I'm finally to the third ep, but I'm working on getting caught up one update at a time). She's not the same, but the characters are just to similar to ignore it.
Last Edit: 1 year, 7 months ago by Razmoudah. Reason: Needed to move a secondary thought thread so it made more linear sense.
Considering that J-List carries the Clannad dating sim I'm not going to try to argue what the correct origin age for it is. My question was just whether or not one was based on the other because the personalities of the two chars are so similar.
Did anyone else notice that they kept changing which side the book was bound on in the start of ep 5? I found it rather strange, since normally most Japanese studios do a better job with image consistency.
Being the way he is, I got the impression that Ioryogi calls her dobato for "dumb Kobato". He seems to call her that every time he thinks she messes something up. I don't really think it's supposed to mean anything other than an insult.
