Wasn’t this chapter supposed to come with a color page? Maybe I misunderstood.

Another set of 10-pages for this chapter, the last one in case you didn’t know — 121 pages for the book release.

Lots of pretty drawings for the final pages:

 

This was shorter than I expected — but I am not complaining!

The book compilation will come out on October 17 and the limited first print will come with a DVD containing the Flash anime episodes released until then.

CLAMP and Kodansha are listing the book release as book compilation (単行本) instead of “volume 1”, which makes me think that, if this series is ever picked up again, it won’t be under the g-sword title, but rather a different subtitle.

But for now, we should consider this series done.

It appears that the book is not going to have the same length as regular manga books. For the 14 chapters that were released, there were roughly around 120 pages for them all. It’s likely that CLAMP will draw an extra story for it, but even so, it’ll hardly reach 180 pages.

All and all, I am glad that CLAMP didn’t put as much effort into it. The non-chibi illustrations were really nice, though!

This is hardly a fan favorite, but I appreciate your patience while following this series.

I wonder what series shall replace it now that CLAMP have some space in their schedule =)

HiGH&LOW g-sword serialization to end on August 9

The August 9th issue of Weekly Shonen Magazine is announcing that the serialization of HiGH&LOW g-sword has come to an end. Chapter 14, to be published on that issue, on sale August 9th, is going to be the final chapter.

The chapters that have been published will be compiled into a tankoubon to be released on October 17. A limited first edition with a DVD containing the flash anime episodes from the first and second arcs.

The message also implies that the serialization could resume at “some day”, but we should consider it done for the time being.

This wasn’t a very popular CLAMP series across the fans in general so let’s just hope this will allow CLAMP more time to work on their other series. Personally I am very happy that this wasn’t a very long series.

Haken Anime! gets paperback edition in September

The novel Haken Anime! was written by Mizuki Tsujimura with illustrations by CLAMP. It was serialized in an・an magazine from 2012 to 2014, each chapter featuring an illustration drawn by CLAMP.

The novel was compiled in a book that was released in 2014. Apart from the cover and one inside illustration, none of the other illustrations drawn by CLAMP were included in the book release.

It’s been announced that a paperback version is going to be released on September 6. The cover for this edition can be seen on the right.

If the majority of CLAMP illustrations were not included in the book version, chances that they are going to include them in the paperback version are very slim, if you ask me. That is a shame, since the illustrations were so nice. But who knows?
