Bigger covers of Volume 17 (out today in Japan):

I hadn’t noticed Fei Wang’s wings on Syaoran’s cloak ^^ And now we have a clearer idea of what’s going on in the picture XD

– Anime:
For the people expecting a 3rd season, I might be wrong but it seems like there won’t be one. I don’t know why exactly, but I’ve heard rumors about that some time ago, and it seems like they were right.

The 4th soundscape it’s told to be the “conclusion of the work”, one of the directors briefly mentioned something about a not-continuation in anime magazine interviews, and apparently Ohkawa said something about that too on the 3rd episode of their Internet Radio (which can be downloaded here).

There might be a continuation, but so far nothing has been confirmed (unlike in the 1st season when we had the 2nd season announcement instantly after 1sy season’s end). I wouldn’t throw away the possibility of a continuation, either in a 3rd season or even OVA, but maybe it won’t happen so soon.

• XXXHOLiC:

– Next chapters scheduled (red means new):

11/13 – Young Magazine #50 – Chapter 123 (on sale).
11/20 – Young Magazine #51 – No XXXHOLiC scheduled.
11/27 – Young Magazine #52 – Chapter 124.
12/04 – Young Magazine #1 – Chapter 125.
12/11 – Young Magazine #2 & #3 – Chapter 126.

Bigger images of Volume 10 and Official Guide (both out today in Japan):

– Anime:

The same news I posted for Tsubasa Chronicle applies for XXXHOLiC’s anime as well. Unfortunately, I should add, nothing has been confirmed that a 2nd season will be produced (though we also have evidences that is over for real). But again, I wouldn’t throw away any possibility until the manga is really over (Rayearth had OVAs even after the anime series was over, why can’t XXXHOLiC have some too?).

• ETC:

– Code Geass:

CLAMP will draw the box illustration that will come as a privilege with the 9th (and final) DVD of the series. The DVD will be released only on September 28th of 2007.

I confess myself surprised, in a good way, of course (that’s what I call credibility). Means we’ll have nice and colored Code Geass art by CLAMP (not only sketches).

  1. Fuuma! can’t wait to see the complete image of that cover, and … the regular cover is really cool too O_O;;

  2. No third season of Tsubasa? O_o But they were planning from the beginning to have three seasons, weren’t they? Now they change their minds? Perhaps CLAMP was more upset with the anime than they publicly admitted. I can’t imagine they would leave the story with no real ending, though. I mean, the HOLiC anime at least had a sort-of-ending. But the Tsubasa anime has way too many unanswered questions. Weird. Not that I like the Tsubasa anime. XD But being the masochist that I am, I was kind of wanting to see how badly they messed up Tokyo. XD

  4. I am at the point where I really don’t care about the anime, and actually glad that they might stop before they get to Tokyo. I can’t even imagine how badly they’d butcher it, if they’d even to it at all. If they had an OVA (or series of OVAs) with CLAMP doing the character design and having actual input, I think I would die of joy.

    And yay, Fuuma cover! I don’t like the regular edition one, it looks weird. Sakura looks like she was tossed to the side and someone threw a curtain over her, and Syaoran looks like FWR Junior, all he’s missing is a monocle and a butt-chin. I like Fuuma’s cover, people have been saying he looks like Kurogane but I think he looks different. They do look like they could be related, though. Fuuma looks too happy to be Kurogane right now XD *stalks online stores until Volume 17 is in stock*

      Again, we’re on the same boat XD I think the series is already screwed big time, but a nice CLAMP-involved OVA would certainly heal a lot of wounds.

      >Sakura looks like she was tossed to the side and someone threw a curtain over her

      LOL !!!!

      >and Syaoran looks like FWR Junior, all he’s missing is a monocle and a butt-chin

      LMAO !!! XD “butt-chin” XD

      >I like Fuuma’s cover, people have been saying he looks like Kurogane but I think he looks different.

      I really think Kurogane looks like Fuuma XDDD Only that Kurogane would never smirk like Fuuma (maybe if his mom and dad had never died). In a few ocasions, actually, and for a very slight second, I thought it was Fuuma when in fact it was Kurogane ^^””

      Like

      • I shudder to think at what they might do to Tokyo. If the most violent thing they’ve shown to date is Kurogane’s mom getting killed (in the shadows, no less), how the heck are they going to animate the huge amounts of violence in this arc? All the crucial plot points would have to be eliminated. Kamui getting his arm ripped off, Syaoran getting cut up by Kamui, Syaoran beating up and then ripping Fai’s eye out and eating it, Kurogane beating up Syaoran, Syaoran beating up Syaoran, Syaoran getting a sword through the leg, Kamui and Kurogane cutting themselves and mixing their blood to give to Fai, Fai’s violent transformation, Sakura getting the crap beat out of her while she goes on the search for the egg (including metal rod through leg, fingernails being ripped off, and being slammed headfirst into a wall)… that would all have to be cut out. They might as well not even bother, so I am frankly glad if they aren’t.

        I mean, the anime had Fai using magic TO COOK. If that’s not wrong, I don’t know what is.

        That picture with the dragon outfits where Kurogane is wearing the sunglasses… He looks -so- much like Fuuma there. If I didn’t know better, I would have probably thought that Kurogane and Fuuma were brothers (more believable, IMO than Fuuma and Seishirou being brothers). Kurogane does smirk, but only when he is fighting and being cocky, but otherwise his face is usually either serious or angry. I was just reminded of Legal Drug and the school arc, give Kurogane some sunglasses and you can’t even tell the difference between him and Fuuma. XD

    Sorry, but those last episodes are being just TOO MUCH for me to translate, encode and such, but reading that, now I’m in the fansubbers heaven XD But seriously, I’ve been expecting something like that would happen… they were really changing TRC into something even CLAMP couldn’t recognize ^^u

      Totally, it’s what I told here some months ago. I am SO ashamed to think that that thing bears the name “CLAMP” on it (it’s not even worth it… u.u)

      I was happy for Code Geass’ BOX too ! To hold 9 volumes, the box must be very big ^^ But too bad it’ll take a hell of a time for us to see it.

    Yuuko is TOTAL LOVE on this cover and she is so beautiful as always!! She looks so gorgeous with the Mardi Gras-style clothing! Suteki desu wa.

    That is kind of sad that both HOLiC and TRC are not going to move forward. I still need to catch up on watching the HOLiC episodes. I think that they should do OVA’s for the HOLiC series. That would be lovely! ^__^

    Thank you for the info. Can wait to get the vol 17, or even get HQ scans of them. C.shaoran is kinda of scaring me with all the killing he did at the end of the chapter. u.u

    On my journal I posted my asumption *sp* of when all the clamp in 3-d land will be out. I saw in the vol 16, that the last set will be out in Aug of 2008. O_o *why do we have to wait that long for the whole set.* The next set was confirmed on Clamp-net to be out in Feb.2007

      Hahaha, no no, there’s nothing special about those chapters. The magazines will merge 2 issues, yes, but on the other hand, the interval between the next edition will be bigger, 2 weeks instead of the usual 1-week wait ^^

    The news, I’m very very glad for kobato! specially for the colored pages! x3 I’ll be waiting!
    tsubasa’s news…well, I think beetrain did a nice and decent job in the first season, and then second season just came way down, horrible, full of fillers and I may understand that, but hey if they were going to have fillers, why so stupid ones? @_@;;; I kept watching it cause I had faith XDDD they would do something better but story still was crappy but animation became better (some eps have an horrible animation though) and then end it like that?, how disappointing, I really hope that was not the end of the series and that it was second season ending, cuz ending an anime like that is mediocricy (it even has more plotholes than so far we have in the manga), and they have enough GOOD material (talking about the manga arcs) to do a third awsome season…but oh well, whatever it may be, I always loved the manga just way more.

    and xxxholic’s news, I’ll be waiting to see a bigger image of the official guide! x3 but it looks prettyyy! and a shame that the anime too may not continue, I wanted to see more ;___;
