Scans, scans, scans !!

During the time I was away a lot of good scans showed up on the internet (all scanned by You-Know-Who ^_~). I thought I should gather them all here in case you’ve missed some.

I slightly edited them, you know, increased the colors, stuff like that. Click on the thumbnail to enlarge (all on their original sizes).


These were all, and ALL, and absolutely A-L-L scanned by Alison (ladydarkmoon). Yeah, she deserves all that and a bit more ^^

You can find the original posts, where these originally came from, here and here.

She also gave me the permission to host the XXXHOLiC Official Guide scans at The Room of Requirement. I cleaned them up very superficially, but the image size remained the same. The result was a very friendly 62 MB file divided in 4 parts ^__^

Deep, deep thanks to Alison-chan *glomps* ^_____^

Overall I really liked the guide ! It has all the little tidbits and details only fans can notice. The fact that it covers until vol. 6 adds a layer to my 12-vols theory. 12 vols, 2 guides… but it could be 18 vols and 3 guides, too O.o

Anyway, my favorite part was definitely the sketches at the end, and the storyboard OF COURSE *___* I was really surprised with the sketches… they look nothing at all like the actual art, specially Yuuko (they all seem much more childish). One of the best things was being able to see the splash pages text-less (they look even prettier than I thought they already were).

EDIT: You can get the whole XXXHOLiC & Tsubasa 2007 calendar here, thanks to the wonderful work of mysticdawn5 ^__^ (source: clamp_now).

EDIT 2: The scans mentioned above were taken off as requested by their original scanner. I’ll post here as soon as I find a more, say, lawful file available ^^”

  2. Watanuki’s hat on vol. 10 is the gayest hat that CLAMP has ever conceived. And I say this as a huge fan of Tokyo Babylon. ♥

    I so so so so so love Doumeki. Eeeee. (And Ali-san too, of course, for scanning everything for us all the time, and you for gathering it all up so neatly! :D)

  3. Yo, Chibi-Yuuto! WAI!!! / Arigatou to you and Ali-sama for providing once again the pictures. Even though we have seen them, we just can get enough of loving those pictures again and again!!

    Oh My Gosh…Fuuma is absolutely gorgeous with those clothes, especially with that huge gun!! Fangirl “Squee” Level: Meltdown Alert!! *faints* Absolute “Total Love” for Doumeki looking wonderful on the January calendar page and for the HOLiC official guide book!! ^///^ The two Syaoran on the calendar page are so handsome next to each other!! And what can I say about Yuuko…no matter what she wears, she will always be most sexiest CLAMP female character ever!! She can beat easily all the delegates on a beauty pageant. XDDDD

    Demo Fuuma, Doumeki, and Yuuko are definitely considered to be the most sexiest-looking CLAMP characters of all time!! Sore wa hontou suteki desu wa!!! ^o^

    Can’t wait for more of this for the upcoming year! LAMP really sure knows how to make fans like us very happy. Hontou arigatou gozaimasu!! You and Ali-sama sure make the greatest CLAMP tag team ever!!! Futari mo otsukare-sama deshita!!

    Ja ne, Chibi-Yuuto!

    • Yo, Nyanko-chan !

      I thought the fact that Fuuma’s foot is bigger than his head was bizarre xDDD Alright, blame the perspective if you want xDD But yeah, that gun is COOL ! I guess they were inspired by their Dimension Zero illustration (aren’t they similar? ^^)

      >The two Syaoran on the calendar page are so handsome next to each other!!

      Who do you think it’s who? I suspect the one standing is the clone, judging by his evil look ^^”

      >You and Ali-sama sure make the greatest CLAMP tag team ever!!! Futari mo otsukare-sama deshita!!

      You make me blush like that ! *blushes* Thank you very much !! ^^””

        Oh my gosh, that is so true!! It has to be those huge boots that he is wearing. That is why you see that his foot his bigger than his head! XDD

        >Who do you think it’s who? I suspect the one standing is the clone, judging by his evil look ^^”

        Well, I say that the one who is the clone!Syaoran is the one that is sitting down. He always have his eyes open even when he is showing his determined serious face. The one standing is the real Syaoran, he always has that constant serious look on his face.

        Actually, I got a little help by this from the one true Syaoran fangirl expert out there… XDDDDD

        I’m really glad that I made Chibi-Yuuto blush! ^////^ Yokatta desu wa!!

  7. sugoi. utsukushii desu ne? The december picture with candles reminds me of that picture of Sakura with her friends in Cardcaptor Sakura. Thank you for posting them. (The guys look prettier than the girls, as always…haha) so beautiful, CLAMP has become very accomplished. I was surprised that they were able to draw CCS Syaoran so well. Thank you chibi_yuuto.

  8. I’m totally in love with the January calendar v v v but is it just me or is Doumeki never *that* huge in the manga? XD I also like how the normally pale-as-death Holic cast look healthier whenever the Tsubasa cast are involved.
