Ouch ! Again 2 breaks in a row…

The cover of Volume #9 has been announced as well:

Well, it looks as charmy as all the other covers ^^

The tank is released on July 14th.

Novel:
The official release date (it was postponed) of the first chapter/issue of the XXXHOLiC novel will be on June 24th.
Also, in the complete edition, which comes on August 1st, CLAMP shall draw the illustration for the cover and for 2 title pages (one of them being the one published with the first chapter in Comic Faust).
I was really hoping they would draw a lot for this novel and it seems they will.

DVD:
As if ALL the extras of the DVD weren’t enough, it seems that each volume will come with a special Drama CD called “XXXHOLiC 100 Ghost Stories”, with scary stories in it, obviously. Sounds nice, doesn’t it? All 8 volumes will come with a different CD and a new story.

Magazines:
I previously posted that the August edition of Newtype magazine will have the cover illustration draw by CLAMP (A XXXHOLiC and Tsubasa image), also in that edition (because it would be pointless to have the cover by CLAMP and nothing in the contents), will come with a special talk between Ageha Ohkawa and Tsutomu Mizushima (XXXHOLiC’s director).

ETC:
Yay, Kobato, yay !
It’s still in the ETC section *doesn’t like that*, and CLAMP still refers as Kobato’s “new series”. It bugs me a little.
Anyway ! Still no info on color pages, cover illustrations, nothing. I heard from people who bought the latest Newtype issue that the “Temporary” shall fade away (even though the title remains the old one at CLAMP-NET), and that the publication will start from the very beginning, from volume 1.
But it’s still not sure since there are nothing to prove that, though I believe they might be accurate. Also, I’m very curious to know if they’ll just re-publish the exact same pages in Newtype or if CLAMP will re-draw everything, it would make sense since the pages of Newtype have wider measures.

In one of my previous posts I told you about the “CLAMP Newtype” magazine, the Green and the Black edition. However, those were temporary names and now we have the official ones: PLATINUM and PASTEL, both with release scheduled for the Autumn.
They say Platinum is the 1st edition while Pastel is the 2nd one, however, the latest Newtype issue also has an appendix called CLAMP Newtype White, isn’t that the 1st one? Go figure… o.o” I hope there will be more of these magazines, it looks so tempting, check it out !

And last but not least, our dear Mokona-sensei is celebrating another birthday today ! Happy Birthday ! May she find the bliss ^__^

  2. WHAT???? IT’S KENDAPPA ON THE DULEXE???? ;______; the toyko arc is definitely going to be more than 2 volumes then… hope volume 15 comes out here soon >__

    • How did you get that conclusion? I also think it’s going to be more than 2 volumes for sure, but the fact of Kendappa is featuring 15’s deluxe did nothing to help me come into that conclusion XD

      Like

      • coz i just got volume 14 two days ago, and it ended with 108 *___* and about 11 chapters per volume, 119 is the last one or so on 15. we’re not done with this world yet (too many questions left hanging!! subaru!! seishirou!! kamui!! fuuma!! too many scenes we fans want that aren’t here yet!!) so it’s bound to go into 16 ^__^;;

        then judging the fact that kendappa appeared in volume 13 (in kurogane’s memory), that means…. absolutely nothing. …i messed up japan releases and hong kong releases x___x

        anyways, what is tsubasa, or CLAMP even, WITHOUT A KAMUI DELUXE BOOK. COMMON, IT’S CLAMP!!! D: i seem to have too much confidence in CLAMP..

    Do you know if it’s a furoku with the magazine or is it a whole other special issue?

  4. The comic with Sakura, Watanuki, and Doumeki is cute and funny (I wish I could actually read it). Ioryoji getting hit by the manhole cover + and Sakura winning that mahjong game against CLAMP mascots = ^_^

    It’s a little disappointing if CLAMP starts with chapter 1 again, but it’s nice that Kobato’s confirmed to come back. I can’t wait to see chapter 8 and beyond.

    > But oh ! Kendappa is featuring the deluxe one (enough RG Veda, CLAMP XD). It looks very pretty, but please let Kamui be on the next one *-*
    ^_^ *nods in agreement* Kamui seems very likely… (and I think CLAMP is running of RG Veda people).

    • Oh yeah, the short comic looks SO nice ! I heard it’s called CLAMP IN WONDERLAND EX and features, as you can see, Tsubasa, XXXHOLiC and Kobato ^-^

      CLAMP must be very into mahjong, lately XDDD

      About Kobato, yeah, I’m not sure, but I think it’s the most pausible thing to do. We were lucky to find scans and be able to read it, but mostly readers of Newtype never read Kobato before… and they don’t have anything to “catch up” with the story since there’s no tank published. So it would be weird to start a manga right in vol. 2.

      >and I think CLAMP is running of RG Veda people
      Oh yeah! Let the X batch begins ! XDDD I think they are running out of RG Veda Charas as well… The Ashuras, Ryu-ou, Souma and Kendappa were the only *big* charas who showed up at the story, right?

    As for the DeLuxe one, it looks cool too (like always ^__^) but…well…I LOVE RGVeda but still!!! I was SSOOO waiting to see Clow Reed or Kamui!!!
    Anyway! The OST cover…they could have found something better: they are obsessed by the Piffle World, so much that they changed the plot order of the manga and put it first in the 2nd season of the anime…and now the cover of the OST too…?

  8. >But oh ! Kendappa is featuring the deluxe one (enough RG Veda, CLAMP XD). It looks very pretty, but please let Kamui be on the next one *-*

    I thought it would be her, I mean who else? For those who have not yet notice, it’s always boy, girl, boy, girl. The only exception is Kurogane and Fai, but they are the main characters so the usual rule may not apply.

    So taking that in account, adding the fact Ryuu-O form Outo-koku did get a cover (wtf o.O … unless he count as one of Syaoran’s people?), then looking around for significant girls and seeing none, I thought she would be the one. Kendappa-O feel absolutely random? Well, Souma didn’t do much more up to now. And remember what Kendappa-O did in Rg Veda? She might become an important character later in the story. She was among the sktech in the first guide book, the Nihon-koku’s story might become even more important in the future.

    >DVD:
    As if ALL the extras of the DVD weren’t enough, it seems that each volume will come with a special Drama CD called “XXXHOLiC 100 Ghost Stories”, with scary stories in it, obviously. Sounds nice, doesn’t it? All 8 volumes will come with a different CD and a new story.

    Not quite true, it is written: 全巻購入特典:『XXXHOLiC版百物語』ドラマCD. 全巻購入特典, all+number+purchase+privilege, something you can only get if you have bought all the DVD and fill the form in time.

    >Yay, Kobato, yay !
    It’s still in the ETC section *doesn’t like that*, and CLAMP still refers as Kobato’s “new series”. It bugs me a little.

    The first time around too, Kobato was classified in the etc. section until the second chapter was announced, it might be Clamp’s new procedure with new series … as for the “new series” thing … I really don’t know … I didn’t even thought they would redo the first tankoubon … I mean … I don’t really know what to think about this … o.O

    >They say Platinum is the 1st edition while Pastel is the 2nd one, however, the latest Newtype issue also has an appendix called CLAMP Newtype White, isn’t that the 1st one? Go figure… o.o”

    The White one is a 別冊付録, supplement appendix of a magazine, the Platinium and Pastel are 増刊, special edition magazine. So White act as a preview and come along the main Newtype, Platinium and Pastel will be sold separately (for the ones who think of the Newtype appendix we talked about soon this week, it’s written 付録 on the cover).

    >the latest Newtype issue also has an appendix called CLAMP Newtype White […] it looks so tempting, check it out !

    LOL! This very copy is now mine, there is really no coincidences! ^_^

    • I don’t follow that rule because Ashura-ou (boy) came after Ashura (genderless). To me he’s not a girl even though he looks like one ^^”

      >Not quite true
      Yup, I saw that indeed (I use my translator in case you’re wondering XD). I even thought it would be something like Kero and Suppi chess pieces of CnK. But since all DVDs had that extra, I thought it was meaning more a “If you buy all DVDs, you’ll have the COMPLETE set”, and not something you’ll only adquire in the end of everything, in february, etc.

      >The first time around too, Kobato was classified in the etc. section until the second chapter was announced,
      Yup, I remember. I even thought Kobato was a One-shot until it got it’s own section.

      Ow, I understand now the whole Platinum/Pastel thing. I thought they would be also appendixes since there’s no price in CLAMP-NET. I hope it’ll be EVEN better than White, since it was just a preview O.o

      >LOL! This very copy is now mine, there is really no coincidences! ^_^
      Cool ! Hope to see scans soon ^_~

  9. Again Yay! for Tsubasa but why xxxHOLiC has to be published so slow? u_u
    But on the other hand we have many extras for xxxHOLiC DVD ^_^

    BTW the covers looks so cool. I really love the image for the normal edition for Tsubasa.

    -please let Kamui be on the next one- I hope it too, will be a sin if he doesn’t appear.

    About Kobato, no matter if they re-publish the history, the important is that we can see the end.

    As always thanks for the news Yuuto-san that makes me feel better ^_^
