When asked what their favorite story was, the majority of them wrote either "A Kind Land" (ep. 13 in the anime) and/or "Coliseum" (ep. 6&7). Some others wrote "Land of Adults" (ep.4) and quite a few more wrote that they couldn't choose. ^_^
As for favorite character, they picked Kino about 90% of the time. Shizu also seems rather popular, though.
-Kino never, EVER looks good wearing a kimono. No exceptions.
-She does, however, look cute with cat ears. ^_^
