XXXHOLiC◆Kei Event Report from CLAMP-PLA.NET

A bit more than a month after the XXXHOLiC◆Kei event took place at LOFT/PLUS ONE, formally known as XXXHOLiC◆Kei Previous Evening Festival, the website CLAMP-PLA.NET brings their report of the event (most likely the last one for this event).

I was long awaiting for it, you can check it after the cut.

I won’t be making a full translation of this report because my poor japanese knowledge and lack of available time don’t allow me to xD However, I did manage to capture the highlights, which were:

– Some girls came wearing Kimonos and carrying Mokona plushes.
– Original menu was based on XXXHOLiC: Ayakashi cocktail, strawberry sherbet, boy’s right eye (chocolate desert), and the sakes Ishitaya and Hidden Moon (Mugetsu).
– Tickets for the event sold out in one hour.
– The event lasted for 3 and a half hours (a bit more than planned).
– In Part 1 they reviewed Season 1: scenes showing Watanuki weird movements, sexy Yuuko and Kimihiro pleasant companions (this last one introducing the ayakashi that are “friends” with Watanuki).
– When the subject of Kazahaya and Rikuou of Gouhou Drug came up, the audience cheered a “Kyaa”.
– Director Mizushima spoke about the possibility of another appearance of Kazahaya and Rikuou.
– In Part 2 guests Daishirou Tanimura and Yoshiki Sakurai (scriptwriters) came on stage. The contents of the talk can’t be revealed in the report due to its secrecy.
– Two more guests came on stage but the report doesn’t say who because it’s also a secret (they were Sayaka Ohara and Mika Kikuchi as can be checked in Yoshiyuki’s report.).
– Jun Fukuyama, Kazuya Nakai and Shizuka Itou (seiyuus of Watanuki, Doumeki and Himawari) sent messages by e-mail and those were read by the secret guests at the event.
– When the subject of Haruka was introduced, the audience cheered again. Ohkawa asked “Why is Haruka this popular?”, Mizushima thinks it’s because he looks bright and has a soft way of speaking.
– Concept materials of XXXHOLiC◆Kei were screen-projected.
– Tomoyuki Sagawa of BMG Japan was invited to join the stage when the Opening and Ending Themes were introduced.
– Suga Shikao rewrote the lyrics of NOBODY KNOWS after he read the original manga.
– Suga Shikao and SEAMO also sent messages.
– Director Mizushima had a hard time to synchronize Mokona’s steps with the ending song’s rhythm.

Yay for Gouhou Drug crossover! So they really talked about it. The report left open the possibility that Kazahaya and Rikuou might appear again in the new season. I hope it’s true, I’d say it’s true but they just can’t tell that in the report ^^

  1. Yo, Chibi-Yuuto!! Genki desu ka! ^___^

    Thanks for the latest report. *bows* Wow, that event sound like total fun!! Of course the ticket would be sold out like hot cakes! XDD I laughed so hard when the audience go crazy for hot bishies like the Gohou Drug boys and Haruka. Kakkoi da na! Ah, so your friend’s report is there and I’ll give a read. Gomen ne, been very busy with work and hardly has time to read the reports. ^^; That’s real sweet about the crossover with the Gohou Drug boys (if that’s official for sure – must be really sure O.o). Who knows, could be like a twist or something…

    Ohkawa asked “Why is Haruka this popular?”

    LOL!! Of course Haruka is so popular, Ohkawa! Not only he is good-looking, but he has a very calm and cool attitude. Haruka to Doumeki daisuki desu wa!! >////< *faints*

    And Mokona, your kimono is so beautiful!! The colorful Mokona are total love and gosh… I really want some of those drinks. Especially the Mugetsu sake. KAMPAI!! ^o^ Hontou arigatou gozaimashita for this report and it was fun to read it! *glomps*

    Ki o tsukete, Chibi-Yuuto!
    Nyanko-san ^__^


    • I’m with Ohkawa there… I don’t know why Haruka or even Doumeki are so popular xDDD Even amongst the CLAMP members they seem to be quite popular, specially Haruka.

      I think we got loads of nice reports out of this event, which is awesome. Lots of pictures, information and even audio. The more the merrier ^^

      You’re welcome, Moko-chan, glad you liked it ^^


  2. Thank you Chibiyuuto!!

    “Why Haruka is so popular?”
    Like Domeki, in one word: sexy characters!
    CLAMP’s bishonen are really gorgeous, it’s a fact.

    I can’t wait to see Kazahaya and Rikuo!!!
    It’s me, or Lawful Drug is becoming more and more popular?
    I hope editors notice that to buy the future chapters…


  3. Oh, I can’t understand why girls began squezing at Haruka name, I can’t really undestand ….*/////*

    Thanks so much for the report.
    The ending wasn’t difficult to animate. It’s the song, it’s HORRIBLE.


  4. Arigatou! Awesome, now I’ve got the report. If only I could read it~ xD But thanks for your mini translation!

    On a side note, sorry to be somewhat advertising but I’d like to direct anyone who’s interested to my post, it concerns a situation in which the importance of respecting a scanlation group, and the importance of saying thank you should be emphasised within the manga/anime loving community.

    Sore ja~ Itte kimasu~
