Random things

I have a couple of small news to write so I’ll gather them all in this post.

Ah, there’s also that music band meme, which is at the end of the post xD


CLAMP in CARDLAND news:

Tokyo Babylon has just joined the list of CLAMP works to feature on the 2nd series of CLAMP in CARDLAND! The Series will contain 11 CLAMP works and so far they are:

1 – RG Veda
2 – 20 Mensho ni Onegai!!
3 – Mahou Kishi Rayearth
4 – Card Captor Sakura
5 – XXXHOLiC
6 – Tsubasa
7 – Kobato.
8 – Tokyo Babylon
9 – ?
10 – ?
11 – ?

There’s a high chance X will be carried too (given it’s length) as well as Chobits, because it’s in the promotional image:

The content of the new Secret Card has been revealed! It’ll feature a brand new illustration of Lelouch and C.C. drawn by CLAMP! Yes, Code Geass! Surprising, isn’t it?

The Secret Card appearance rate is expected to be 2 times higher in comparison to the previous series, which means finding the Secret Cards amongst booster packs shall be easier for this new series.

The 2nd Series of CLAMP in CARDLAND is due February.

Lastly, Kodansha will be publishing an official guide book for CLAMP in CARDLAND. The book will be called CLAMP in CARDLAND Official Card Catalog IRREPLACEABLE BOOK, it’s scheduled for February 25th and will cost 1,300 yens.

The Guide will contain full information on all 131 cards of the 1st Series and early information of the upcoming 2nd Series.

“IRREPLACEABLE BOOK”, the names are the best part xD

Covers:
Amazon.co.jp has a bigger version from the cover of The Witch’s Mansion and the Moon Fortuneteller:

Tsubaki Nekoi once again drew the cover and inside illustrations for the book.

In one of my previous posts I have mentioned that a commentary by Ageha Ohkawa would be carried in the obi of the manga Youkai no Oisha-san #4. Amazon.co.jp also has that cover up in a higher resolution:

It’s signed as “CLAMP”, though xD

Here’s the commentary at it’s fullest. It basically says “Kuro-sensei, please look after our Mokona too! And also, send nurse Kotoko to our studio…” ( I guess that last part is at the other side of the obi).

LOL!

Kuro is the main character of the manga, he’s a doctor (animal doctor?) and Kotoko is another character, a nurse.

A quite disappointing comment, I should say xD But I was curious about it… and I wonder if this relationship between CLAMP and mangaka Yuuki Satou will bring new projects.

The Witch’s Mansion and the Moon Fortuneteller and Youkai no Oisha-san #4 are out tomorrow in Japan

Music Band Meme:

I stole this wicked meme from ladydarkmoon, because it’s completely RANDOM.

Go to the Wikipedia home page and click random article. That is your band’s name.
Click random article again; that is your album name.
Click random article 15 more times; those are the tracks on your album.

Band: Asunción
Album: Ōme Line

1. Pakkun
2. 1987 National Invitation Tournament
3. Positive K
4. Glastonbury Extravaganza
5. Salasaca
6. Love in a Dark Time
7. Caspase
8. Črnomerec
9. Antonio Bautista
10. Femina Look of the Year
11. George Moutard Woodward
12. Genetic Information Research Institute
13. Jim Hickman
14. Germacrene-A synthase
15. Monkey and banana problem

With the exception of “Glastonbury Extravaganza” (that would make such a great song xD), I don’t really find the tracks that appealing (although “Monkey and banana problem” would make a very good last track).

  1. So does the appearance of CG as the secret card make Code Geass an accepted part of CLAMP canon now? Because I know there’s been some debate about how much of it is ‘theirs’ versus just doing the character designs.

    • I’ve been wondering that too xD

      The character design is definitely property of CLAMP, so they are free to draw as much as they want to and get paid for that properly. But the story is property of Sunrise so I wouldn’t say it’s CLAMP canon.

      CLAMP were invited to draw the character designs, the original idea for Code Geass isn’t theirs.

      I’m curious about this card, though, is it going to be the only one of Code Geass? Or are they going to use those short comics CLAMP drew for the DVDs in CLAMP in CARDLAND too? xD

      • My one quibble with that is that they claim the CLAMP Paranormal Detectives and they didn’t write that. They just drew the images and allowed the writer to use CLAMP campus and the Takamuras. So I think that muddies the water a bit. I wish someone would ask them that.

        They might do another short comic though if CG ends up in the Card Set? Then I think the canon question is answered and as we’re missing 3 slots (at least one of which will be X, I’m sure and likely Chobits…there is a third place open).

        • I don’t think they claim CLAMP School Paranormal Investigators O.o I mean, they consider it as a colaboration between CLAMP and Tomiyuki Matsumoto, the writer.

          >at least one of which will be X, I’m sure and likely Chobits…there is a third place open

          Yeah, maybe Wish or CCD? They were in the 1st Series after all…

          • Well, the CLAMP Paranormal Detectives Files are written about a role playing game made from the Clamp Gakuen Universe. So the four girls from Clamp each created a character personality, appearance and statistics for the game. They probably did play with them at least two or three times, making those books a (probably enhance) written report from the role playing sessions. So yes, the CLAMP did more than drawings for Matsumoto’s novels.

            In CG though, for all we know, the Sunrise team had created the characters, the plot, the world, etc. You can feel there are probably some hardcore Clamp fans in the production team but as far as the credit goes, the Clamp’s only role in CG was to create the physical appearance of the cast. Hopes it help you. ^_~

            • I’m adding that if Code Geass is one of “CLAMP works to feature on the 2nd series of CLAMP in CARDLAND” you can tell it’s not just a Design work, at least to the Clamp. But if it’s only the Secret card, think of it as a cameo appearance. ^_~

  2. Just stay one day out of the internet and you’ll get very behind xD It’s that cruel. They have a lot of things going on in so many different fields, it’s very easy to get lost.

    You’re welcome!

  3. Is then Code Geass part of the Clamp universe?
    I remember I found out about that series in Clamp’s homepage, so I belive they prettyu much accept it as part of their work but I’m not sure.
    I wish I could get the cards!
