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.

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.

Story Title: 3/5
Plot: 4/5
Characters: 4/5
Ending: 3/5

Synopsis:
Kobato is a mysterious young girl who has been assigned the task of healing people's hearts. She has a tiny jar that collects tiny stars when she is successful. She is accompanied by a stuffed pooch named Ioryogi... who is obviously more than he seems. She has tasked herself with healing the hearts of the employees of a local Kindergarden...
but finds herself doing so much more.

Character Likability:
Kobato herself is adorable. She's naive, sweet, caring and pretty much like an overgrown child.
You can't help but like her.
Sometimes I find Ioryogi a tad annoying... he goes from extremes of quiet to yelling... and his yelling is often over the top. He's no Kero... but he's not entirely unlikable either.
The other supporting cast seems likable enough, but this is only volume 3, and you don't know quite enough about them yet.
Quality of Writing:
Easy to understand and easy flowing, this text isn't a bother to follow at all, and isn't choppy. Words are where you expect them to be and the dialogue is natural.
Ending:
Since this is in the middle of a series, there is no true ending. Nothing is even concluded, and that really happens is more problems are introduced...
the equivalent of a TV episode cliff-hanger.
Plot:
In the third volume of this series, the plot becomes more in depth. There are shocking revelations and what seemed like a simple situation becomes increasingly more complex. Personally, I'm both interested in and excited by the added depth to this story.
Quality of Illustration:
CLAMP has my all-time favorite Manga Illustrators on their team... I think their work is so flowing and beautiful... the line work is amazing, the detail is amazing, and their knowledge of the human anatomy is amazing :)

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0316085413, Paperback)

Kobato's mission to fill up her magic bottle might just be on the backburner. It seems that the members of Yomogi Kindergarten's staff are no strangers to wounds of the heart, but despite Kobato's efforts, she's no closer to healing either Sayaka-sensei or the ever-solemn Fujimoto-kun! Moreover, the center is still on the verge of being shut down by unscrupulous gangster types! Leaving Kobato to her own devices, Ioryogi-san meets (read: clashes) with some odd characters from his past and uses his otherworldly connections to investigate Yomogi. Who is Ioryogi-san really?! And will Kobato's sheer determination to help those around her be enough to unravel the kindergarten's secrets and save the hearts of its staff from despair?!
