The TV anime series Kobato. is created by studio Madhouse, based on a manga by the female mangaka quartet CLAMP. The titular character Kobato-chan is a sweet and perky girl, but also extremely naive about the world around her. She came to Earth to fulfill her wish of going to a certain place, and in order to do that, she must fill a mysterious bottle with the suffering from the hearts of people she “cures”. She is accompanied by a foul-mouthed and bad-mannered “teacher” (which is a stuffed animal), and she may not fall in love with any of those whom she “cures”.
