Episode 5 of Kobato was really good! I know I’ve said before how Kobato was my SUTEKI (wonderful) anime for this season due to its light hearted slice of life moments which greatly remind me of Aria, but this episode also managed to pull some emotional moments as well. When u combine these together you get 1 hell of an episode.
The actual episode is half based on the manga and the other half original (guess which part was which). Its nice to see the whole debt story starting to emerge on the anime, and to be honest even though I dont remember the manga too well anymore the scene with the debt collectors was awesome.
The story with the old writer (whose last name is the same as mine btw!) was really touching as well, I was surprised the episode turned this way but I loved it.
In the end if I were to rate this anime so far….this picture summarizes it perfectly
