CLAMP in 3-D LAND DEBUT! Report
The characters of CLAMP’s works can be enjoyed in 3 dimensions at the event of the CLAMP in 3-D LAND Trading Figures sale commemoration, CLAMP in 3-D LAND DEBUT!, held on March 18th of 2007, at the TOKYO FM HALL. This time, were invited for this special event those who purchased the wide-popular 1 Series in November. CLAMP’s talk was, of course, about “The secret of the creation of CLAMP in 3-D LAND“, and the first screening of the recently-completed animation clip of CLAMP IN WONDERLAND 2 1995~2006 got plenty satisfaction from the audience! The 1st part of the event started at 14:00 and the 2nd part at 17:30, the staff of CLAMP-PLA.NET has made a full report of the 1st part!
TOKYO FM HALL
The meeting place for this time was the one near the Imperial Palace, TOKYO FM HALL. It’s a hall where events like concerts, lecture meetings and plays are usually held at.
CLAMP in 3-D LAND welcomes
In the hall entrance and in the lobby, the characters of CLAMP in 3-D LAND, displayed inside a glass case, welcome the guests. Everybody watched enthusiastically the characters of the 2nd Series that were still not available for purchase at the event date (Freya from Chobits, Syaoran from Tsubasa – RESERVoir CHRoNiCLE –, Rikuou Himura from Gouhou Drug, Yasha-ou from RG Veda and Hikaru + Misaki from ANGELIC LAYER).
The rehearsal was done in the hall, before the doors were opened, in the same flow as the real thing. The expression of the staff who checks the screened preparation for the movie, camera materials, image and sound is serious. Work is done very carefully so that troubles should not occur in the real thing.
Opening the doors
Before opening the doors, there was already a long line of attendants in the stairway which led to the hall entrance, waiting for admission! Among them, someone who came all the way from Hokkaido just for that day. Influenced by CLAMP Mokona no Okimono Kimono, she was wearing a wonderful kimono.
A long line was also formed in the Goods Corner where shitajikis, clear files, poster cards and other goods of Tsubasa and XXXHOLiC were being sold! In special, the event-limited good “3-D LAND 1st series package illustration specially-made pearl bromide photo frame” seemed to have gotten large popularity.
The 1st part of CLAMP in 3-D LAND DEBUT! finally starts! The expectation and the tension of the guests who watched the opening film that had been projected onto a large screen seemed to whirl inside the hall.
In the midst of cracking applauses, the CLAMP members Ageha Ohkawa, Tsubaki Nekoi, Mokona and Satsuki Igarashi appeared in this order! Among dresses and kimonos, the colors and materials in their clothes shone their individual personalities, “The clothes were chosen to suit the Spring”. By the way, seems like the clothes worn in the 2nd part were also based on the Spring (picture = lower right).
The secret of the creation of CLAMP in 3-D LAND
The production process of Subaru from Tokyo Babylon, scheduled for the 3rd Series, was introduced by the image and commentary from the prototype designer, Satou Kashou. “The more the Series are claimed, the more the quality will rise, we think”, said Satou impressively.
CLAMP in 3-D LAND Photograph Announcement
The “interesting” pictures taken by the purchasers of CLAMP in 3-D LAND were announced. Ageha Ohkawa’s favorite was the one sent by someone with the pen-name of “Tsuki Sora”-san, who sent “Syaoran-kun fighting against a giant pizza” (top picture). “Love Dog & Chii” and “Stuffed Ioryogi & Chii”, among others, were also some of the lovely combinations.
3rd Series & Privilege Figure Announcement
The line-up of CLAMP in 3-D LAND 3rd Series and the privilege of acquiring the Boxes of Series 1 to 4 were announced. 5 new characters (Watanuki Kimihiro from XXXHOLiC, Sumomo + Kotoko from Chobits, Ashura from RG Veda, Sumeragi Subaru from Tokyo Babylon and Asahi Hinata from ‘Suki. Dakara Suki’) are scheduled for June! And then, the figure of “Vampire Fye” was decided to be the Boxes-purchasing privilege!! (bottom pic) [Note from Chibi Yuuto: not even CLAMP were aware of that announcement. The audience and the CLAMP members went “EHHH?” and Nekoi asked “…why Fye?” LOL!]
The First Screening of CLAMP IN WONDERLAND 2 1995~2006
Not to mention works that were made into animes of great popularity like Tsubasa and XXXHOLiC, the well-known CLAMP characters are all at a large gathering! Characters from first-time animated works like ‘Suki. Dakara Suki’, Gouhou Drug and Kobato. also appeared, to the over-enjoyment of the audience. Cheers and applauds echoes from the audience as the image flowed with a speedy development and great power. In addiction, the members of CLAMP announced that “sales are planned for during this year”, for which made the fans very happy.
Present Lottery Service
Kobato. goods, CLAMP Mokona no Okimono Kimono specially-made clear files, original accessory set designed by Mokona, etc, were presented to the audience through lottery service. There was the rare prize of “event limitation goods” signed by the members of CLAMP, too.
Following the closing greetings from the CLAMP members, the Opening and the Ending, featured by Ioryogi, of CLAMP IN WONDERLAND 2 1995~2006 were screened. In the future, CLAMP in 3-D LAND will continue up to 8 Series until September 2008! From now on, what kind of character shall appear? And also, what kind of diorama shall be reproduced? Everyone, please look forward to it!!
I apologize for any possible mistakes (I did the best I could ^^”)
I can’t believe Sorata is wearing that “A” shirt again ¬¬ But yey, Yuzuriha is wearing the CLAMP Campus uniform ^___^
General info about “CLAMP IN WONDERLAND 2”:
About the OP:
– The book Yuuko is reading is Magic Knight Rayearth, that’s why it’s the first world the Mokonas arrive. The pages from the book seem to be just like ones from the real manga, both when they dive into the book and when they come out of it, by the end of the video.
– Rayearth (the mashin) is made of 3D.
– Lan and Gingetsu are there, but we can only see their back.
– The characters of CCD and Duklyon appear in an advertising poster in a building, in the X segment.
About the ED:
– Features Ioryogi riding a toy car (as you could see in the picture xD). The staff credits roll in the left.
– He drives the car while interacting with some CLAMP mascots like the little monkey from Tokyo Babylon, Usyagi and the globe-fish from CCD.
– At the end of the video, we see the message “SEE YOU AGAIN” followed by the name “CLAMP” surrounded by the individual signatures of the CLAMP members (just like the end of CLAMP IN WONDERLAND).
About the production:
– Mokona got angry several times while working on the storyboard because of the big amount of characters and the speed they all appear on-screen.
– The number of sheets used in the animation was the same amount of sheets used in a conventional 20-minutes anime episode (talk about quality o.o).
