Breaking: New "Tsubasa" series to begin in August

Breaking news for Tsubasa fans!

It's been announced that a new "Tsubasa" series will begin on August 20th in Kodansha's monthly Magazine SPECIAL.


The series will be linked to the currently ongoing XXXHOLiC Rei series.

Special thanks to Newsmangajapon for letting me know!

I have mixed feelings about this. I am sure the community will be more than happy to see this news, but I wish CLAMP would just move on. The least I can do I hope we will now get all the answers that we didn't get in the first place.

XXXHOLiC Rei #3 to come with original audio drama

The second volume of XXXHOLiC Rei, which was released today in Japan, is announcing that the 3rd volume of the series, to be released on August 20th, will come with an original audio drama. The drama's script will be written by CLAMP member Nanase Ohkawa.

The latest XXXHOLiC Rei volume also updates the number of "XXXHOLiC" volumes to 12.7 million copies sold to this date.

Looks like Kodansha is trying really hard to always bring a special bonus for each volume. This looks more interesting than the Blu-ray re-releases, though -- in my opinion!

XXXHOLiC Rei #2 release date

The second volume of XXXHOLiC Rei will be released on April 23rd, says Kodansha.


Like volume 1, this volume will have a limited edition that will come with the original animations of XXXHOLiC Rou (2010) and XXXHOLiC Rou ~Adayume~ (2011) in Blu-ray format.

CLAMP will draw the Blu-ray jacket illustration and a XXXHOLiC-themed memo paper sheet will come as a bonus.

(not sure if the image above is from the cover of volume 2 or the Blu-ray jacket... probably the former).

I am alive!

Hey you all, I'm still alive! CLAMP, on the other hand, are not much alive these days.

There hasn't been much going on in the past months, that's why this LJ hasn't been updated in a while.

In the meantime, I strongly advise you all to follow either my Facebook page or my tumblr. I've been posting small little pieces of news over those two places.

I'm sure this scarcity of news is only temporary ;)

"Logic Lock Festival" key visual revealed

As previously announced, CLAMP will be in charge of drawing the illustrations for Nakamura Aki's debut mystery novel called 〜Logic Lock Festival〜Tantei-goroshi Paradox.

Last weekend, the key visual of the novel's main character was revealed on a poster signed by Nakamura Aki and CLAMP.

The book will be released on November 14.

I was hoping the characters would have a less teenager and more adult look.

What did you think? =)

The game was first introduced in December 2012 and CLAMP has been providing monthly new illustrations for this it. You can check the new illustrations that CLAMP did for the game so far in this gallery.

CLAMP-NET.COM re-opens!

CLAMP's official website, CLAMP-NET.COM, has officially re-opened today!

The website has a "Schedule" section, listing the upcoming events and releases, and a "Blog" section, with posts from the CLAMP members.

It looks very simple, content-wise, and it doesn't fully cover all of CLAMP's vast portfolio, focusing mainly on their main list of works. I hope the website will grow with time.

CLAMP has also launched their official Facebook page, hurray!

The new website was designed by vanillate. The clay dolls that appear throughout the website were designed by Miro-san.

So it's finally open!! I'm looking forward to see what the website will offer us =)
