Kobato (manga, vol. 3) presented by CLAMP, translated by William Flanagan

Kobato, Vol. 03 - CLAMP

Kobato learns that the loan shark, Okiura, is Sayaka's ex-husband. He tricked Sayaka's dad into taking on a lot of debt. Kobato is worried she won't be able to help. Meanwhile, Fujimoto is softening towards her, because she genuinely seems to care about everyone. We also learn that Fujimoto loves Sayaka, and was an orphan who was taken in by her dad.

(show spoiler)


Okay, so this volume introduces some messed up family relationships, but I still liked it. The series now has my attention, so I'll see where this goes.

Ioryogi-san and the other talking animals appear to be heavenly beings. What does that make Kobato? Also, we have another CLAMP universe cameo, in the form of the bunny messenger from Wish.
