Video: Kobato - Ashita-kuruhi "Under the Ginkgo"

This video - Kobato - ASHITA-KURUHI "Under the Ginkgo" - is part of Clamp's latest manga series from Japan. It tells us a story of a Ginkgo tree's life and feelings. Includes Ginkgo song.
Kobato is a sweet and perky girl, extremely naive about the world around her. She has a "mission" to fill her mysterious bottle with people's hearts she heals so her wish to go a certain place can be granted. However, the restriction is that she is not allowed to fall in love with any person whose heart she heals. She is also a beautiful singer.
