The North American anime licensor Sentai Filmworks revealed at its Kawaii Kon panel on Saturday that it acquired the Kobato fantasy television anime series for release in August. In Clamp's original manga and the subsequent anime adaptation, Kobato (Kana Hanazawa) is a young girl who "cures" other people's pain and fills a mysterious bottle with feelings of suffering from their hearts. The anime ran for 24 episodes from 2009 to 2010.
Yen Press will publish the 4th manga volume in North America this July.
