posted on 2009-11-09 12:06 EST by Egan Loo
The official Japanese website for the television anime adaptation of CLAMP's Kobato. manga has announced that the first limited-edition DVD volume will include a new mini Flash anime. In the manga and anime's story, Kobato is a young girl who "cures" other people's pain and fills a mysterious bottle with feelings of suffering from their hearts. The Flash anime is titled "Hajimete no Kobato. #1"
Besides the Flash anime, the limited edition of the first DVD volume will include the first two television episodes, a CLAMP-illustrated box for the first half of the series, a name tag in the shape of Kobato's signature dove icon, a DVD jacket illustrated by character designer Hiromi Kato, a special case with a picture label, eight pages of liner notes, and a mail-in offer form. The regular DVD edition will just have the two television episodes, Kato's DVD jacket, the liner notes, and the mail-in offer form, although the contents of both editions are subject to change.
Yen Press announced at Comic-Con International in July that it licensed the original manga for North America.
