Kobato's 1st DVD to Include New Mini Flash Anime (Updated)
posted on 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.
