Kobato Manga #4

Now we are finally getting some answers. Oukira talks with Kobato again, much to Fujimoto’s displeasure. We finally get some background information on Ioryogi. We also get some idea of how the various dimensions are related to each other. Yuuko and Clow make cameo appearances. It made me laugh. The angel Kohaku makes an appearance as well.

Oh, the misunderstandings continue with Sawako misunderstanding Kazehaya and Kazehaya misunderstanding Sawako. Kento is not helping matters any, though in all fairness I don’t think he realizes Sawako and Kazehaya truly like each other.

So if Natsume is sometimes troubled by Natori’s worldview, Natori is worried about Matoba’s worldview. The problem is that Matoba is extremely powerful. So when he finds out about Natsume, which is something Natori was trying to prevent, well let’s just say that there is trouble and Natsume is praying the whole time that Matoba never finds out about the Book of Friends. One of the best volumes to date!
