First things first, so let me explain everything before:
koalaexe-san will attend AnimeExpo exclusively as Press Member of Mexican net-radio Genshiken. There, he’ll be able to join the press-only talk show and make question(s) for CLAMP. So, basically, it’s 100% sure that his question will be asked (he already got his “Press approved” e-mail confirmation).
Why am I saying all that? Because he kindly agreed to make a contest in order to decide which question he’s going to ask at the event. Now, that’s what I call kindness ^^ So let’s all take a deep bow for him *deep bow* ^__^
Please, everybody, let’s participate !
How To Participate:
All you have to do is to leave me a comment in THIS POST with the question you want to ask. Very easy.
1. EVERYBODY can participate. It doesn’t matter if you have a LJ account or not, or whether I know you or not. Everybody is welcome. For those who don’t have a LJ account, just leave an anonymous comment.
2. You are free to ask as many questions as you wish.
3. Feel free to comment as many times as you want, if you happen to have a new question but you already commented once, just do it again.
4. We prefer english, but in case you’re not so familiar with the language, you can post your question in any language you want (later, we’ll see if we can get someone who can translate it for us xD).
5. The deadline for the questions will be of 5 days, in other words, you have until June 17th to submit your question.
6. After this date, all selected questions will be placed into a public poll where everybody will be able to vote on the one they like the most. The winner one will be asked for CLAMP at AnimeExpo.
The selection will be done by me and Koala-san. By “selection” we mean “take off the bad questions”. Then, you’ll be able to vote, among the selected questions, for your favorite one.
What will be considered as a bad question:
1. Personal questions – We’re not from People! Magazine xD.
2. “Will you come to xxx country ?” – We all want CLAMP in our countries, and it’s not only up to them to decide which country they shall visit.
3. Questions who have been answered before in past interviews or already have an answer – Of course, and this includes the ones related to the hiatus of some of their works.
4. Questions directly related to the plot of unfinished works like “Will xxx happen in xxx manga?” – They won’t reveal any spoilers, and it’ll be just a matter of time to find out the answer to your question if you simply follow the manga.
5. Debunked rumors like “Is it true there’s a 4th CCS season in the works?” – No need to comment on this one xD
6. Offensive questions – No need to comment on this one either…
This is only to avoid troubles, it’s only *one* question, it has to be a very good one ^^ Other than that, please ask anything !
Please everyone ! Submit your question ! You might be lucky enough to have it answered by CLAMP, and let’s face it, the chances of your question winning this contest are much higher than winning AX’s one ^^”
One last word: Koala-san gave me his word that he’ll ask the winning question, and he’s really not lying about all this (or I’m gonna kill him XD), but in the eventual misfortune of him not being able to make the question, we should all understand instead of criticize him. Every press member usually can ask a question or two, but we never know what might happen.

C’mon people, I wanna see smart questions ^_~
Wow ! Thank you everybody who submitted your questions ! The contest is not over yet, don’t worry, keep posting, but we had a very nice first day. Lots of very good questions and I would like to know the answer to all of them.
A couple of things to consider:
1. If you want to submit OTHER question(s), please do it in a NEW COMMENT POST, it’s easier for me to spot them, and that way I won’t accidentally skip it.
2. Please make sure to not ask questions in the black list (read above about the “bad questions”)
3. Also, make sure to not ask questions who were already asked. Here is a list of the pre-selected questions, read it before submitting your own.
As you can see, it’s a LOT of questions. I wasn’t expecting this much ^^” I might anticipate the deadline in a day or two, otherwise July 1st will come and we’ll still be here voting on the questions. Maybe it’s my fault, for asking everybody to post as many questions as possible, but as I said, I really didn’t expect it to be SO many questions (how stupid of me, maybe?).
EDIT 2: The first part of the contest is over. There’s no time to submit your question anymore.
