Animation Note !


CLAMP in Animation Note Magazine:

I don’t know if you remember, but a while ago I posted about an interview on Seibundo Publisher’s new magazine, Animation Note.

It happens that Anne-chan (flowright) got the magazine and kindly scanned CLAMP’s article ^____^

You can check it through her flickr.

The article is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G ! *-* I had no idea of it’s content so I was two times surprised.

It’s mainly focused on the creation proccess of the XXXHOLiC anime. The interview must be very insightful (it probably tells how much CLAMP is involved), but it’s too far from my japanese knowlegde XD

There are pictures of Ageha Ohkawa with the anime staff in one of their meetings. PLUS, many pictures of CLAMP’s studio (with little charts and everything !!!) and also of the 4 lovely ladies (I loved the last pic ! But why does Ohkawa have to be so far? T-T

In other words, CHECK IT ! XDDD

A massive thank you to Anne-chan *bows* ^______^

  1. I didn’t notice myself, but I saw someone posting about it in my flist.

    Dumbledore’s Army pic? Lacks Marietta. Let’s hope it’s not the WHOLE group because they can’t cut her off the movie.

    • I forgot about Marietta XD But it does look like she’s been cut O.o I think that’s the official picture of the group, maybe won’t go through the “SNEAK” thing and will make Umbrigde herself found out about the army o.o

      Did you like Luna? ^^

      • I didn’t notice either, but a friend of mine did. I hope they didn’t cut it, though. I saw someone theorizing they could have Michael, Ginny’s ex, to turn them in. That way they could hit two birds with a stone, but I don’t know.

        Luna looks really cute, even if her hair is shorter than described in canon (but they never get hair right anyway XDD;). Now I noticed Ginny is the only girl wearing trousers there O.o Can they (Hogwarts girls) even wear them with the uniform? Maybe the Weasleys couldn’t afford the skirt? Or is it to show she’s the tomboy? XD

        The CLAMP pics look really cool. Dude, Mokona has a katana in her studio!

  2. It seems that Daniel’s hair is going to bother me through out the whole movie. XD He looked so good with it longer! Ron looks fine, though you are right with him looking younger.

  3. OotP pictures, OMG! Thank you for posting those! =DDD

    Dumbledore’s Army look just.. perfect. =x I love how Luna looks, and I really like Neville’s hair! (guess it fits his personality. ^^”) I also love Ron’s hair, and the twins, and.. ah, it looks just perfect. T_T About Umbridge, I guess I’ll HATE her in the movies jus like I do in the books. She looks just like I had imagined. T_T

  4. I suspect, too, they want to hide the fact that the stars are aging – the shorter hair makes him look younger. πŸ˜‰
    Awesome photos! Umbridge looks a little different than I pictured her, but I can see this will be excellent.

    • >In the last page of the interview CLAMP looks soo cool! They seems like a famous idol grup XDD

      Soo true !! I loved that pic so much ! I really liked the perspective used to take that shot *-* The guy who took it has a really good eye.

      >I can’t remember who are the guy with long hair on the left and the shortest boy..

      I can’t think of who’s that one either. As for the shortest, he’s Nigel. I think he’s an “original character” of the movie, because instead of him, it should be the Creevey brothers ^^

  5. Well, definitively: CLAMP are god! I love all of them *o*. Thank about pics!

    >>>Emma is holding Daniel’s arm XDDDD

    A strong friendship, or something more? O.o

    The second pic, looks so cool!, but the left one?. and are missing somepeople (they are incomplete) or am I only?
    Luna is so… so great! (my favorite character).

    In the third one, Umbridge looks better than the last pic,

    The last two pictures look better and clear.

    Thank you again Chibiyuuto-san ^_^

      You’re so welcome for that ! Don’t mind the hyperness of your comment, I don’t find it lame AT ALL ! Not everybody appreciate CLAMP pictures, but I think it’s because they don’t know their true meaning ^_________^

  7. Yo, Chibi-Yuuto! Those pictures are pretty big enough for me!! XDDDD I like the picture of Professor Umbridge with all those neko pictures. And if you look closely, you can really imagine her having the toadlike expression on her face. O.o I like Luna Lovegood and Ginny Weasley, they are a very cool female characters. But I hope that the actress who plays Luna Lovegood will do a good job playing it.

    Hermione’s expression in the picture of the D.A. says that she going to kick anyone’s ass if they mess with her O.O (Watch out, Ron!!). Love the Weasley Twins. I can’t wait for their pranks in this movie!! They were hilarious on GoF! XDDDDD Ron’s hair is fine, but it makes him look young (Weasley is our King!!). Neville’s looks just gets better than ever. Harry: “The hair, the hair!!!!! O__x *faints*

    Arigatou for these really cool HP pics and the CLAMP scoop, Chibi-Yuuto!!!

    Ja ne!!

  8. Harry….you look so…so old….

    Its the haircut. It makes him look tired. At least with the shaggy hair it hid some of his age. He’s technically 17 (going on 18) trying to pass of as a 14 (going on 15). Funny thing is that Ron looks younger than him when he’s THE OLDEST of the trio. XD XD XD Anyway, two years older than the actual age aint a big deal. Its just the hair. It bugs me. I loved his hair in PoA, it was just right methinks. It looked just like I imagined anyway.

    Hermione is perfect as always, however her badass front is a little intimidating. Luna is AMAZING!!! So cute! *squeals* ADORABLE X 100

    • >I want to know why they changed the dialogs o_O;

      That was weird indeed o.o The only reason I can picture is that they changed to words that sounds more likely of what the character would say. But even so o.Γ΅

      I know, but he always does that mouth, lately. Even when he’s not running XD Just re-watch GoF and pay attention to his mouth XDDD

  12. Thanks for the pics, Chibiyuuto!! Call me slow but it took awhile for me to notice that the group pic is actually a pic of Dumbledore’s Army. XD And I actually mistaken Ginny as Luna but yeah, got it right now. >.<

    I don't remember reading in the book where the Weasleys are too poor to afford Ginny a skirt so I guess it must have been something amusing thought up by the director.

    And Umbridge! She's totally awesome and exactly how I used to picture her to be, except that she's a bit fleshier. And her office environment is simply amazing. Gah! I can't wait any longer to watch the movie! XD

    P.S. I'll be the odd one out to say that Harry looks fine, even with that hair cut. ^^

      Oh, good point ! Maybe it’s one of Jorge and Fred’s trousers O.o But then again, she did use skirts on the previous movies.

      >except that she’s a bit fleshier.

      LOL ! XD She’s just perfect to me.

  14. Awesome pics!

    I nearly died at the first picture with just the trio! πŸ˜€ I am a H/Hr fan! πŸ˜€

    Harry’s hair is too short. It’s part of Harry to have out of control hair. πŸ˜€ It’s part of what makes Harry, Harry, right? I still love Hermione’s hair. Luna like exactly how I pictured her.

    Thanks for showing us the pics! *sigh* Too bad we have to wait till next summer for the movie.
