Footsteps of Spring is the twenty-first episode of the series Kobato.


Okiura shows up again, demanding payment. Kobato gets very worried, and decided to wait outside his office until he speaks with her. She waits for a very long time, and when he comes out she asks him about his feelings for Sayaka-sensei. She passes out from the cold rain, and Okiura carries her back to the nursery, where Sayaka and Okiura are finally able to resolve the tension and their problems. Ioryogi stares out the window at the first blossoms of spring... time's up.
