Kobato.

Meet Kobato Hanato, a sweet and rather simple young girl on a quest to have her single, dearest wish granted. But first, she must learn the ways of the world from Ioryogi-san, a gruff blue dog whose bark is just as bad as his bite! Under his "tutelage", Kobato puts her efforts into passing various trials of common sense so that she may obtain the key to getting her wish-a magic bottle which must be filled with the suffering of wounded hearts that Kobato herself has healed. But with Kobato's common sense sorely lacking, she keeps flunking Ioryogi-san's trials left and right! It looks like the road that lies ahead of Kobato will be a long one indeed!

I don't know much about reviewing profesionally but I'm going to express my opinions here.  Story 9/10 The storyline was great, it was original. I mean, I know all stories are unique in their own sense but this idea was greatly developed and put into something that made sense and actually touched my heart. I go about watching anime and enjoying it but in reality, there's only a few that touch my heart to the core and Kobato is one of them. Certainly, it migh not be the best but it definitely is one of the best. Art 10/10 I surprised myself by giving the art a 10. It was different, in a sense and I noticed that most of the main women had long hair :P I know that the art of some things like K-On is a new style but the chibi moments and Ioryogi-san were really well-drawn. The art style is quite different from normal and caught my attention immediately.  Characters 9/10 The characters were well-developed and pretty simple, not so complicated. Kobato is your usual naive, innocent and pure girl with a big heart. She can stand up for herself and others, which I really admire in her. Kazehaya-kun is also another cliché character who is cold and aloof to Kobato in the beginning but gradually warms up to her. Sayaka-sensei is awesome in the sense that she totally understands the main characters' feelings for each other and her love for her ex-husband. Ioryogi-san is one of the best characters that spice up and liven this story. His temper and genuine ( hidden ) care for Kobato is really sweet. The rest of the characters contribute in their own way and are one of the reasons I enjoyed this manga.
