Kobato. Episode 2 — ...The Shining Kompeito
Published February 23, 2013
Ioryogi tells Kobato she must heal people's heart in order to fill her bottle. She runs into a man giving out tissues and helps him out by taking the whole box. While passing them out, she walks into the same stranger from before. Kobato follows him to say thank you, and ends up at a daycare, Yomogi Nursery, run by Sayaka Okiura. She finds out that the stranger, Kiyokazu Fujimoto, works there, and spends the days playing with the children there. At the end of the day, she finds a boy from the nursery on a swing set. He tells her that his mother can't pick him up yet because she has to work, but asks Kobato not to think badly of her because she is working hard for his sake. Kobato praises his mother, healing his heart and earning her first konpeito.
