Many news!

The internet problem is fixed! In fact, it fixed yesterday (so that I could answer to all your comments, thank you very much ^^) but it was too late to post!

I have some interesting news:


Shonen Magazine #7 and Newtype contains the firsts Tsubasa Anime Setteis:

The stature is excellent and the “thinness” too. They look very like their manga version, which is very good indeed.

Syaoran looks just excellent! I mean, perfect! Is the one I liked the most!
As for Sakura, I’m not that happy with her. Her smiling face is THE cutest thing, but her eyes… there’s something about those eyes… I don’t know, I didn’t like it much… also, isn’t her hair too red? I know it’s a bit more red in Tsubasa, but is way too red, for me.

Well, somebody has to tell the chara design that Fye is blond! He’s not a second version of Yukito! >.< I hope it's just the scan… Despite of that, he's excellent!
As for Kurogane, just perfect!

In an overall, the chara design made a very good job indeed! I feared that it could ruin the charas with flashy hair/body or a part of their body/face extremelly big, turning it on a plastic doll… I don't know. But they remained very faithfull to the originals!
I was not so pleased with Sakura's eye (Maybe it's just on that pic?) and for Fye's hair… Taking these off, I really loved the result!

On other news, the main staff has been announced, as well as the artists responsible for the OP and ED songs:

TSUBASA CHRoNiCLE:

Original Work: CLAMP;
Director: Koichi Mashimo (Director of all the others Bee Train projects);
Series composition: Hiroyuki Kawasaki;
Character Design: Minako Shiba;
Opening Song Artist: Kinya Kotani;
Ending Song Artist: Maaya Sakamoto.

Too bad CLAMP is not mainly involved… I guess they are too busy or would be if they enter… but we can still hope for Ohkawa to do some scripts!

Thank you Sakura-chan!

CLAMP posted a very unique news on their ALBUM: For the first time, they will live separated, each of them on her own house. Mokona already moved and the next are: Satsuki, Nekoi and lastly Ohkawa.
The main reason, according to them, is that they wanted some privacy. Well, I think we can understand them. Nothing like your own house and stuffs… I still clap at them to know that they lived together for more than 15 years, this is just amazing since they were not only living, but also WORKING together.

I was really shocked when I saw that… I just can't imagine CLAMP living separated… they are so made to be together. That's why I really think that this will end someday and they'll be back to live together again. Just like CLAM-JAM-FLY and CLAMP's WORKS, which turned out to be just one site again… the main reason to made CLAM-JAM-FLY is because they wanted to separe their "privacy" life… but I think they figured that it was too complicated.
I know that we can't compare a site with out real life, but it's one thing to notice!

So, the studio will turn into a real office. CLAMP chicks will wake up every morning and go to their "office", meet their work partners and go back to house at the end of the afternoon. Forget the pillows wars XD
This is so strange, isn't it? I just hope they don't work separated as well, or else it could complicate things…
Well, they must have thought about that decision, surely, and if this moving thing won't bug them or interfere in their work, then it's fine.

  1. the chara designer did a really good job !

    clamp live separed ?
    well I always said that it was the end of Clamp. TRC looks like a balance sheet. I think they will anounce the end for the 20th anniversary.
    I guess they will finish their works during the 5 years and then go to retirement, maybe Nekoi will make a solo career.

    • Oh my, easy easy ^^ Don’t freak me like that XDDD

      I don’t think so… living apart is not a sign of retirement, not for me. The mangaka career tooks ages of work… They are very rich, but not enough to marry and raise children… and besides, they love what they do… I think they are only going to retire when they are old enough or if something really serious and decisive happens.

      Yeah, it could be o.O But during the 15 years of living together, they must have had boyfriends… I don’t think that was a problem for them ^^
      But yes, it could be.

    Waaahhh! Até que enfim, character design foi revelado ^^ Gostei do Syaoran!!! Está muito lindo! Concordo com vc, a Sakura me decepcionou um pouco… Esperava que ela fosse mais kawaii >___< Agora só resta saber quais seiyuus serão escolhidos… Eu gostei da escolha de Kinya Kotani (gosto muito de Glaring Dream, ED Gravitation) e de Maaya Sakamoto.
    Sobre a separação, morar em casas separadas, acho que isso é inevitável… Só espero que isso não prejudique o trabalho delas…

  6. wow

    Sakura looks pretty good, though her eyes look a little strange. ditto with Kurogane,except with the hair. Fye is perfect. Syaoran on the other hand…I think his face should be more angular. otherwise, i’d say the character designs are excellent!

  7. wai, can’t wait to watch the anime! Thank you lots for putting up the scans you found! ^-^

    Poo, i think it’s the scan that’s conking up the colours.. XD Fye looks awesome! XD

    Hmm, as for Clamp living separately.. it’s really a pity.. I myself would love to share a home with my working manga buddies.. :3 saves transportation fees (especially when you live in Japan, where the cost for almost everything is extremely high) and well, saves time too. 8_8 let’s hope this is just part of their growing lives..
    Eeto, another theory is that CLAMP has grown much richer than before and that each of them can afford to live on their own and stuff… so there’s no need to stay in one house anymore… 9_9 it’s so kool to be clamp since they’re always getting so much money from their beautiful works and merchandise…

  8. the first picture isn’t from the shonen mag but from the newtype of february.

    I wanted to scan it yesterday but you already post the picture so…. not that we need high quality scan
    maybe I will rescan it later when I will have the shonen mag or “steal” the picture from a newtype raw online. their high quality scans are awesome. I buy the magazine almost every month but I still download it for collection purpose.

    > news of clamp moving out…

    man, If ever someone lives the group I think it will be mick nekoi (sorry I’m so used to the old name T__T) because she’s the one who is the most independant. Mokona and Ohkawa are just so much like best buddies that I could not see them working apart. TB was their baby afterall.
    I don’t know for satsuki chan she does look like the baby of the group but I love her work.

    and ohkawa is the serial dater one XDXDXD. She did the script of a manga call “ai” with one of her boyfriend.

    It’s gonna be hard to work in a different place than where they live because mangaka tends to work a lot in a day so since they are tired they just crawled down on their bed. I hope their appartement won’t be far away of the studio.

    But man, aren’t we rich ? studio clamp can afford 5 appartement in tokyo o___O ! I so want to marry them

      So you know a site with raw Newtype scans? o.O

      >man, If ever someone lives the group I think it will be mick nekoi
      Really? o.O I just can’t imagine neither of them leaving… Haha… But why is Nekoi the most independent?

      >and ohkawa is the serial dater one XDXDXD. She did the script of a manga >call “ai” with one of her boyfriend.
      WORD…. that’s why I think that boyfriends is not the main reason of their moving.

      Double WORD! That’s what I thought too! They won’t wake up on the late night and finish what they started -___- Now they’ll have a limit time to work…
      I don’t know… I hope we are wrong about it, ne? We don’t want this moving thing to interfere on their works…

      >But man, aren’t we rich ? studio clamp can afford 5 appartement in tokyo >o___O ! I so want to marry them

        it’s not canon it’s just a general feeling you know. When the others are just Ohkawa’s bitches (so to speak excuse my french) Nekoi’s project feels different from the overall tons of mokona or commun projects.

        Plus she’s actively involving in design and marketing stuffs. I’m suspecting she’s the one responsible for clamp not telling anymore who’s the main drawer since AL. Because before that it was always written.

          I feel that too ^^ Especially on Gouhou Drug… I feel like a very different manga of CLAMP…

          As for not explaining who draw what, I don’t think that’s the main reason…
          I guess it’s because AL is a Shounen, as for Chobits, xxxholic and tsubasa…
          and the japanese boys are not really interested who does the art work
          In fact, Gouhou Drug came after Angelic Layer… and even so, it says it’s Nekoi.

  9. eh a sakura, mas nao eh a sakura….

    Ola! Nossa, ja sairam alguns esbocos do que vai ser o anime de tsubasa? Estou mesmo desatualizada… -___-‘ mas sobre os olhos da Sakura, acho que sao meio tristes porque nao eh a Sakura Kinomoto, da serie Card Captor, mas a Sakura hime, de Clow koku(estou sendo detalhista,ne?- nao ligue…^ ^’). Vi em xxxholic, a Yuuko falando que ambas vivem em mundos diferentes, mas a alma eh a mesma… talvez a personalidade mude, ne?- apenas uma sugestao… achei que os personagens (shaoran e sakura) ficaram com um ar mais “adulto”, que no manga ainda nao vi, muito bom!
