Kobato. news and more

Sorry I’m a bit late on posting this, I was out of town ^^;

Kadokawa has launched a campaign to celebrate the upcoming releases of Kobato. and Wish! The campaign consists of earning points and exchanging them for a 15 cm Ioryogi plush strap.

The points will be available on the comics of Kobato. and Wish new version. A total of 1000 prizes are available.


Also good news! The release date of Kobato. #4 was announced! It will be released on December 26, a year after the release of volume 3.

Still on Kobato., Kadokawa has a special pre-order page for the 2010 calendar here.

Lastly, Kadokawa will release a new book called ALL ABOUT CLAMP. This will be the book version of the special magazines CLAMP Newtype that were first published in 2006.

The magazines carried information on all of CLAMP’s works, from RG Veda to Kobato., among from other contents. The uncompilled portion of X known as volume 18.5, first released with CLAMP Newtype [PLATINUM], will also be included in the book.

ALL ABOUT CLAMP will be released on October 24.

      • It’s amazing how much attention it’s getting. It may even get as massive of a franchise as CardCaptor Sakura. Of course I’m not sure if they can really play off anything as much as the whole almost tarot card thing that they did in CardCaptor Sakura.

  1. I bet they’ll try to release ALL ABOUT CLAMP over here too. And I’d totally buy it if there’s a translated 18.5 coming with it. Which reminds me that I wanted to check the status on Kobato. — they mentioned sometime ago that they’d like to release it in Germany but back then there were no tankobons yet. Hmmm.

  2. Thanks for all the infos ^^

    If the ALL ABOUT CLAMP is available on amazon.jp I guess I might eventually buy it…I will think about it aha~ Because all the pictures are nothing new and since I can’t read japanese the articles will be of no use to me…but the part with X 18.5 is really tempting me~
    As for Kobato’s 2010 desk calendar, for the moment, I have no intention of buying it at all, not interested 😛

    And actually, I wanted to ask you something else: is there any news about Clamp in CardLand? The project seems to have been plainly stopped suddenly without any explanation…

    • Not too excited about ALL ABOUT CLAMP either. It seems to be a copycat of CLAMP Newtype.

  3. Wohooo~~~ ALL ABOUT CLAMP!! That sound damn sweet in my ear! ^^
    And Ioryogi plush strap! XDD They should make the a combination of Mokona, Modoki, Ioryogi and Usagi one day. I bet that would be very interesting! XDDD

    That’s great, but it makes me less hopeful for a continuation of the series. It really does make me wonder if Ms. Ohkawa now dislikes the ending she planned, and is having trouble writing another one.

    I’ve got high hopes for Kobato, though! I don’t think it’s quite right to say that it’s going to be the next CCS, since they’re such different series, but I’m sure that it’s going to be a wonderful success.

  5. Thanksssss for the news ^^ The anime is near us now ^____^ Feel the waves of advertisements and campaigns now..hehe

    and that ALL ABOUT CLAMP book, I want that…hope to find some way to get hold of one *thinking hard* Publishers reuse the materials to get money from fans again, huh? But that’s Clamp’s fans’ fate *sigh*
