Thanks to clamp_now community for this news!
CLAMP x Shueisha? This is the first time that CLAMP is published in Shueisha. Also, wasn’t Gate 7 supposed to be a shoujo? And it’ll run in a Shonen magazine? Humm.
No word on the simultaneous release from Dark Horse yet, but maybe an official announcement is about to be made, considering that the picture above was leaked.
Needless to say that I’m veeeeeeeeeery excited about this!!! Next month!!! *_*
Update: According to ANN, the chapter will be a one-shot:
The November issue of Shueisha’s Jump Square magazine is announcing on Monday that the popular manga quartet CLAMP is drawing a one-shot Gate 7 manga in the next issue on November 4. The manga is part of the “Supreme Yomikiri Series” (Supreme One-Shot Series) the regular feature of one-shot manga by famous creators such as Yasuhiro Nightow (Trigun), Akira Toriyama (Dragon Ball), Masakazu Katsura (Video Girl Ai), and Hideaki Sorachi (Gintama). Jump Square launched the “Supreme Yomikiri Series” in its first issue in November of 2007.
If it gets a positive response from the readers, the series might continue in Jump SQ or move to some other magazine?
