I used to be a total CLAMP fangirl, but over the past few years every one of their series has disappointed, so I put this off. There was a major sale on manga, so I decided to give in and pick up a few volumes of Kobato because the art is just so gorgeous.
My god, Kobato is dumb. I am amazed she has enough higher brain function to walk upright. This is way beyond 'sweet girl who's a bit of a dim bulb.' And Ioryogi is just mean, without the charm of a character like Kero-chan in Cardcaptor Sakura.
There's just enough plot intrigue that I'd be interested in finding out just what's going on with Kobato. But not enough that I'd be willing to pay full price for the pleasure.
