Satsuki Igarashi’s Chipmunk Cheeks ends serialization, book planned

The serialization of Satsuki Igarashi’s column Chipmunk Cheeks has ended in the current issue of Newtype magazine. The information comes from the column itself, which announces its final installment:

Satsuki’s monthly essays were being published in the magazine since March/2002 and no explanation has been given for the cancellation.

The good news is that a book compiling all essays is planned to be released soon.

I’m really going to miss it, I really liked all the random illustrations and it’s always a pleasure to be able to actually read the essays (that is, when translations were available). It was also a guarantee that there would be at least one CLAMP feature in every Newtype issue.

I always wondered whether these essays would become a book one day, but I didn’t think it would have to end serialization for that to happen (I expected volumes, LOL, I’m so optimistic!)

Looking forward to the book! =)

  1. Awww, I wonder why they decided to cancel the column all of a sudden? 😦 Maybe it has something to do with their busy schedule…if they are planning climaxes for two series, managing Kobato, and thinking about restarting X/1999 and Gouhou Drug that IS a lot of have on their plate.

    I am happy they are going to be compiled into a book as well, but part of me hopes if her schedule frees up, she’ll return to a column at some point.
