Kobato: …If it's something I can do.

Okiura: Are you saying you'll do anything?

Kobato: No.

Okiura: Now now!
And you acted like you had a remarkable fighting spirit, too.

Are you afraid to declare that you'll do anything?
!!! page 02
Kobato: I am not afraid.

Though it's fine to do whatever I can,

What I can do isn't much.

Okiura: That's not true.
You're cute, Kobato-chan.

Depending on the situation, that can make money.
!!! page 03
Kobato: Even if I did make money,

FX: Shocking

Kobato: Will you be healed by that, Okiura-san?

Okura: Huh?

Kobato: I'm told that Yomogi Kindergarten has a debt.
If that were paid back in full, Okiura-san, would you be healed?
!!! page 04
Okiura: Why are we talking about being healed all of a sudden?

Kobato: Then,

…Will it make you happy?
!!! page 05
Kobato: I didn't help hardly at all,
But there's something that helping to heal the hearts of many people made me understand.

To be healed is when someone's wish of "I want this" is fulfilled.
And that is certainly what's called happiness.

Kobato: What is your happiness, Okiura-san?

FX: Birds chirping

Peep peep peep

Kohaku: Spirit that lives within the water,
Answer my call.

FX: Water swirling

Kohaku: Lend your strength to the trees' moisture, gather yourself to save those lives.

FX: Puff of wind

Kohaku: Rain of grace, pour down.

FX: Rain falling

FX: Rain falling

Kohaku: Hello, Ginsei-san.

Ginsei: You noticed me?
!!! page 09
Kohaku: I'm glad the invocation went well.
In the past I got Shuuichirou-san soaking wet too, as well as the garden.

…Was that the Shuuichirou you're with now?

Kohaku: No.
My failure with the invocation was a long time before the time I met the Shuuichirou-san I'm with now.

Ginsei: …

Kohaku: If you like, won't you have a rest?

On that veranda?

Ginsei: Why?

Kohaku: Because you look a little lost.

Ginsei: …

FX: Thump

FX: Running footsteps

Fujimoto: That idiot!

FX: Turning head

Fujimoto: She's an idiot! I thought she was an idiot, but--
To go to Okiura, on top of that!

FX: Running

Fujimoto: Why, why do my      always, by Okiura…

Fujimoto: My…

What did I say…?
!!! page 14
Ginsei: …Kohaku.

Kohaku: Yes?

…You were saying, at Genko's shop.

That the partner you desired was with you
…But it was fine that that partner hadn't desired you.

Kohaku: Yes.

Ginsei: I don't understand.

Why he doesn't hold out his hand.
Why he doesn't try to possess it.

If it's killing his own wish, then why
…Is he smiling?

I really like how Kobato completely turned the tables on Okiura in their conversation just by being herself.

I simultaneously feel bad for Kohaku and am glad that CLAMP are making this reincarnation thing much less creepy than they could. Also, poor Ginsei, do they not learn about feelings in the otherworld? 笑

It occurs to me that a reasonable Mandarin proficiency standard to aim for is being able to translate from, or at least read, the Chinese raws.
