• DVD:

The 2nd XXXHOLiC◆Kei DVD (with episodes 2 and 3) will be released on July 23, its first edition will come with a Drama CD, this time centered on Watanuki, entitled 縁側 -エンガワ- (Engawa, something like “porch”). You can hear a sample of the Drama CD here, just click on the サンプルを試聴する orange link.

• Event:

Animate is holding a XXXHOLiC campaign to last until August 31. If you purchase XXXHOLiC merchandise (tankoubon or anime DVDs) in any of Animate’s stores you win points that can be traded later for an exclusive pair of headphones (no pictures yet!).

• Code Geass:

Code Geass R2 will be getting new Opening and Ending Themes. The Opening Theme is called WORLD END and will be performed by FLOW while the Ending Theme is entitled Waga Rotashi Aku No Hana and is going to be performed by ALI PROJECT, back to the old partnership of last season.

The single of WORLD END will be released on August 13 and Waga Rotashi Aku No Hana on July 30.

The new Opening and Ending sequences will start running in the anime on July 6, and great news, CLAMP once again will draw the illustrations for the Ending sequence! Can’t wait for that.

• Comics:

The covers of the Deluxe edition of CLOVER have been announced!

The covers have the same illustrations except for instead of having the green background that the standard edition has, these ones’ original backgrounds were preserved. I’m very happy that Oruha got herself a cover =) They look very pretty.

Instead of being 4 separate volumes, it appears that Deluxe 1 will have volumes 1 and 2 of the standard edition and Deluxe 2 will have volumes 3 and 4 (hence Oruha being on the cover).

The Deluxe editions of CLOVER will be on sale on July 17.

• CLAMP in CARDLAND:

The Secret Card of the 4th series will feature Kinomoto Sakura, Hanato Kobato, Shidou Hikaru and Chii as I reported here previously, now the card’s title has just been announced: Girls’ Sea, while the title of the Point Card will be Boys’ Sea. Which characters will appear in the Point Card hasn’t been announced yet, but I’m sensing there will be a lot of naked skin in these two cards xD

The Dramatic Decks Vols. 1 and 2, without a release date until now, will be both released on July 18.

Dramatic Decks are theme decks. Vol. 1 will have only Card Captor Sakura cards and Vol. 2 only X and Tokyo Babylon.

    • I really liked the first batch! Looking forward to the new ones ^^

      I guess that’s why Nekoi was so busy about. She’s the one who colors with the computer, after all ^^

  1. I guess I’m the only one who thought that Flow and Ali Project were both terrible, but yay for more Clamp illustrations. Also, yay for the deluxe editions only being two volumes total, I spend less money.

    The new break for HOLiC does make me think that Clamp are trying to end them simultaneously. I’m all for breaks instead of more slow-as-molasses chapters. And that’s less times I have to spend my money on Young Magazine. Tra la la.

    P.S. Yeah, “porch” or “veranda.”

    • I liked COLORS xD But I’m not a big fan of theirs either.

      >Also, yay for the deluxe editions only being two volumes total, I spend less money.

      I wonder what’s so “deluxe” about them. They cost 1000 yens each and the standard edition costs more than 500 yens xD

      >The new break for HOLiC does make me think that Clamp are trying to end them simultaneously.

      They really are. I hope so. I’m looking forward to see for how long they can stretch this volume xD

  2. Buh!!! what kind of name is “sea of girls”?, I insist “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun” was the best choice (CLAMP you better start to read Chibiyuuto’s journal). Well…at least I was right with the summer theme or something like that O_o

    -I’m sensing there will be a lot of naked skin in these two cards xD
    LOL!!! that deserves to be seen XDDDD

    -CLAMP once again will draw the illustrations for the Ending sequence!
    I didn’t expect this…but that’s good to hear. Almost July 6th, can’t wait >.<

    Thanks Chibi Yuuto!, good news to start the half of this year ^__^

    • HAHAHAHA I prefer my version too XDDDDDDDDD But it’s okay since the Secret Card will match the Point card. So it would have to be “Boys just wanna have fun?” xD

      >Well…at least I was right with the summer theme or something like that O_o

      Good guess!

      >LOL!!! that deserves to be seen XDDDD

      It’s summer in Japan, after all xD

      You’re welcome, Hikki-chan!

      • Maybe the names would be “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun” and “Boys of summer” and both would be named “Summer delight” XDDDDDD

        So since the Secret Card match with the Point Card, could it be that the characters of both cards will make couples? or would it be a random selection for the boys one? O_o I’m a little curious about that ^^U

          Very good guess! Then, would we get Syaoran, Fujimoto, Lantis and Hideki? XDDDD

          Like

          • I support the idea of Syaoran, Fujimoto and Hideki. However for Lantis, I don’t know since there is a 50% of being Lantis and 50% of being Eagle. If you ask me, I prefer the second option >.< (Lantis was never one of my favourite characters)

    • Sometimes Young Magazine does that. Sometimes they release an issue a couple of days earlier (Friday), usually when Monday is a holiday. July 21 must be a holiday in Japan, I don’t know.

      You’re welcome!! ^__^

  9. Wow-wow-wow! New songs and new illustrations for CG! And no breaks of Tsubasa and Kobato! Thanks, Chibi Yuuto, that’s really great news! ^__^

      >By the way… is it still any chance to see your scans and translation of Kobato?

      Yes there is. Alison (the scanner) still hasn’t scanned the remaining chapters yet, but as soon as she does it, I will edit them and release them at CLAMP No Lumiere like always =)

      By the way, I don’t translate them, Jamie does it (really well) ^^

    • I’m sure! =) Or at least that’s what CLAMP-NET says.

      That happens sometimes, every once or twice a year, usually when Monday is a holiday in Japan so they release an “advanced” issue xD

      Sometimes they do the double issue thing, too, but that’s for both YM and SM.
