Kobato Vol. 3 (manga)
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?!
